Old Abram Brown - ABADABAD, Soft Pyramids
This event is 18 and over
Old Abram Brown


Summer Home, the new EP from Boston-based indie rock group Old Abram Brown, mixes wistful lyricism with a bright and breezy sonic texture. Placing emphasis on sunny guitar melodies, bouncy bass lines, and bold percussion effects, this tight collection of tunes offers thoughtful nuance and depth of emotion in both production and songwriting while still maintaining the dark, melancholic edge of the band’s previous work.

In 2011, the band embarked on an innovative project in which live performances were filmed and subsequently premiered on various blogs over the course of 9 weeks. Participating blogs included Consequence of Sound, YVYNYL, The Wild Honey Pie and The Muse in Music. The series served as a digital multimedia experience of the band's live show and became known as the "Blog Tour".

Their live show conveys the energy, command, and fullness which is truly evident on their recordings.

Here at the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone.  We believe that learning about wine and cheese involves learning more about yourself.  Our goal is to help you understand and communicate what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine or a morsel of cheese.

HEISS:
The son of a contemporary classical composer, Frank Heiss started playing drums at the age of four. He became an accomplished orchestral timpanist, travelling the world while still in his teens and culminating in the New England Conservatory Youth Philharmonic Orchestra Boston Symphony Orchestra sponsored performance of the Dvorak cello concerto played by Yo-Yo Ma with John Williams conducting. After earning the Filene Music Scholarship to attend Skidmore College, his band Conjunction Junction, which played mostly original songs in addition to cover songs by prog rock legends King Crimson, Rush and The Mahavishnu Orchestra, opened for Phish in 1990. Always being inspired by innovation over imitation and after being exposed to old school UK hardcore breakbeat music in 1991 as well as the music of an Ithaca New York based band named “Jaws” - Frank Heiss began using electronic musical instruments such as Alternate Mode’s DrumKAT and the Akai S950 sampler.

Then in 1993, with an already growing passion for Hip Hop, Frank Heiss heard the sounds of Pete Rock and DJ Premier, after which he promptly traded in his drumset to buy an AKAI MPC3000 and make trip hop recordings which would later be released on Rising High in the UK - a label home to pioneers like Luke Vibert (Wagonchrist) and Mixmaster Morris (Irresistible Force.) After moving to NYC in 1994 to be involved with the rising “illbient” scene there, he met Dr Walker of the German electronic duo Air Liquide with whom he would collaborate on several occasions. In 1996 Frank Heiss was signed to Liquid Sky Music as tube by DJ Soul Slinger where his debut album “Alive” containing ‘metal step’ drum-n-bass was compared to Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and Photek by magazines like URB, Mixmag and CMJ. Heiss followed up with “Bending Spoons” on the EMI/Harvest label, once home to Soft Machine, Deep Purple and Pink Floyd. At the beginning of new millenium, Frank Heiss took time away from performing to create a wild studio project combining Hip Hop and Country music called The Hick Step Massive. Using this boundless creativity, he also licensed a variety of music for use in television via Heavy Hitters publishing and Video Helper.

After a hiatus from the music and tour lifestyle, Heiss has reinvented himself as… himself. No longer using different monikers to introduce his music to the world, he now produces music simply as HEISS. An Integral exploration into Spiritual teachings and a renewed outlook on the world created a new and mystical desire to produce music inspired by connection to the Divine, music with purpose - to bring Joy and celebration of Awakening to those who listen. Frank Heiss currently resides in his home city of Boston, and continues to produce and perform, sharing his experience with a 35 year journey into music.

White Arrows - Video Teeth
This event is 18 and over
White Arrows



Bardo is a transitional state of being, the phase of existence between death and rebirth. It marks the end of one thing and the beginning of another. It represents an evolution, which is why the title of White Arrows' second album, In Bardo, is so appropriate. The Los Angeles indie rock band found themselves in a new plane of being after touring extensively since their inception, finally grounded enough to create a cohesive work that reflected the musicians' present mindset.

White Arrows, a four-piece who met in Los Angeles, began touring almost as soon as they formed, hitting the road with Cults, White Denim and The Naked and Famous, and performing at festivals like Coachella and Sasquatch. The transitory, continuous nature of
touring meant that their 2012 debut album, Dry Land Is Not A Myth, was created in bouts, pulled together over the course of almost two years. After Coachella last year, the band finally returned home with no obligations set out before them and allowed the creative process to take them whenever it would.

"My only motivation was to make songs," Mickey says. "I wanted to get out all the ideas in a way that was productive and creative. There was no sense of what the songs would be – I just wanted to make music. I think there became a cohesive approach as we went along because we were writing at one particular moment in time. This is all from the same headspace."Andrew adds, "Our sound just locked into place as we were writing it. After the first few songs it clicked in and things started moving faster. I wouldn't say we knew what we were doing going into it, but we found out along the way."

Certain thematic elements were circling the music, even as Mickey wrote some of the lyrics in a stream of consciousness fashion. He found that death, sex and religion were always present,
always around him, and those ideas sunk into the music on In Bardo itself. The songs are darker and deeper than those White Arrows have created previously, threaded together by
these omnipresent and sometimes unconscious themes. "Things were happening and I was thinking about the same things over and over again every day and writing about them," Mickey says. "Those are topics that tend to come up in conversation or you hear people
talking about on the street. It was constantly there. I don't think it was conscious effort to make an album based on those things but it ended up inherently being thematically very similar on a song to song basis."

Musically, In Bardo takes a few strides in a new direction for the band. Andrew, who had written prior material on keyboards, picked up the guitar and focused strongly on how to integrate the instrument into White Arrows' innovative blend of psychedelic rock and electronic indie pop. "Nobody Cares" was the first song to emerge after touring, a number ickey says most aptly conveys the musical balance White Arrows was seeking. "We Can't Ever Die," a boisterous, hook-tinged track that reflects the disc's title, fully embraces that aesthetic, setting the stage for the rest of the music the band wrote.

After meeting with several producers, White Arrows selected Jimmy Messer and spent the winter recording with him at his Los Angeles studio The Tube. It was the band's first time making music in a real studio with a producer, and the musicians found the experience to be ideal. "We loved it," Andrew adds. "It was a very freeing experience. Jimmy had good perspective on guitar, which was helpful because that's where we were trying to shift. It was
the most harmonious record-making process I've had with any band so far."

For White Arrows, In Bardo is the transition. It marks the end of one thing and the beginning of another. The songs, from moody album opener "I Want A Taste" to surging standout number "Leave It Alone" to the evocative two-part closer, represent the musicians' current mindset and inspirations, pulled cohesively together by their succinct process of creation. It is, as Mickey says, the band's real introduction into the world.
