B3RAO
with Convoi, Mikey Maags
Started producing in early 2013, mainly started with making Electro and such, but over the course of 2013 i have been refining my production of tech and disco house... Early 2014, everyone will only see only tech and disco releases from me. I work extraordinarily hard to keep on learning and refining my sound. I'm settling into my own and starting to find my true passion in making TRUE house music. I try to show no bias in the music i make so i still will put out Electro collaborations but as far as my own personal productions I am trying to turn over a new leaf and produce the music i love... I am so anxious and excited to share with everyone with what i have been so busy creating lately.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Jason Bartell
This event is 18 and over
A Sunny Day in Glasgow


It’s been a while, but A Sunny Day in Glasgow are back with Sea When Absent, their third proper album. Sea When Absent situates itself in the science fiction that is life in 2014 and goes looking for what new myths might speak to us in our post-Fukushima, post-quantum, post-everything world. Recorded over a year and half with Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile) at his Uniform Recording Studios in Eraserhood Philadelphia, the album is a conscious move away from the bright-dark, ambient maximalism of the band’s acclaimed double LP, Ashes Grammar, and a move towards a post-millennial, up-front pop sound. Sea When Absent is simultaneously A Sunny Day in Glasgow at their most accessible, most insane, and most rock.

Appropriately for new beginnings, Sea When Absent marks a number of firsts for an ASDiG—it’s the first album recorded in a “real” studio by someone who isn’t Ben or Josh, the first album not written mostly by Ben, the first album with next-to-no reverb, and the first time in ASDiG’s history that it has existed as an actual band (ie, not just Ben or Josh playing everything). There was also a conscious effort to get away from aspects of recording that have defined this band in the pasts—namely heavily reverbed and buried vocals [ed.—they never sound buried to Ben]. Vocalists Jen Goma and Anne Fredrickson have beautiful voices and it was time to explore the possibilities of their abilities/talents. Jen took on a central role in the making of this album, stepping up to write most of the lyrics and melodies. Annie also contributed melodies throughout the album and put her classical cello training to use adding string arrangements. Since 2009 Ben has called Sydney, Australia home and while he was down under, multi-instrumentalist/backup vocalist/engineer/jack-of-all-trades Josh Meakim was “Our Man in Philly”, overseeing the recording sessions and adding all of the musical and production ideas he usually does. The distance between Ben and the rest of the band also forced novel ways of building songs from across the world. Bassist Ryan Newmyer, in Brooklyn, was tasked with deconstructing and rebuilding several songs in his own way—“Oh, I’m a Wrecker (What to Say to Crazy People)” bears the fruit of this tact. Holding it all together is drummer Adam Herndon. Adam is Sea When Absent’s alchemist—weaving between, and often reconciling, the colossal boom of electronic beats (see “Golden Waves” or “Double Dutch”) and the subtle elegance of a drum kit in a room (see “The Body, It Bends” or “The Things They Do to Me”).

But what about the songs? “Byebye, Big Ocean (The End)” gets things immediately going with a visceral assault of guitar and rhythm from which the listener is thrown into the madhouse power-pop of “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing)”. “Crushin’” is probably as close to a Prince-recording-for-Stax-Records sound that ASDiG will ever get, while “MTLOV (Minor Keys)” is classic ASDiG minus the reverb, with the beat turned way up. “Never Nothing (It’s Alright [It’s Ok])” is a quiet storm “Sympathy for the Devil” (literally, Hades) and “Golden Waves” takes Janet Jackson’s “Love With Never Do (Without You)” and gives it a bad dose of e.

Between releasing Ashes Grammar in late 2009 and Autumn, Again in late 2010, ASDiG spent the better part of that year on tour. The 6 members in this band returned to 6 different Ithacas and the various dramas and adventures they’ve endured since then inform a lot of Sea When Absent.
But 2014 is also just an insane time to be alive. Dominant narratives have broken down and the stories we tell ourselves have never been more up-for-grabs. It’s all happening and A Sunny Day in Glasgow want to be as simultaneously everywhere and nowhere as the rest of us. Sea When Absent is ASDiG’s story for the milieu—a fever-dream about the now (or maybe a lucid dream about the fever-now) and a future possible…set in pop-major.







A SUNNY DAY IN GLASGOW – Bio

A Sunny Day in Glasgow is a post-nation musical outfit. Its members live in three different cities and two different hemispheres but, the band began in a Philadelphia bedroom in 2006. Back from several years in the UK, Ben Daniels enlisted the help of his twin sisters to sing on a bunch of songs he had written. The Sunniest Day Ever EP was the product of this experiment. Ben soon moved to Montreal from where the band released their debut LP, Scribble Mural Comic Journal. SMCJ, recorded for exactly no money and with one microphone, pushed the boundaries of both dream pop and DIY and allowed the band to tour North America and Europe, including stops at the Whitney Museum, KEXP, and WNYC.
After these tours the band had pared down to Ben and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Josh Meakim and the two decamped to a cavernous dance studio in rural New Jersey on the shores of a bucolic Delaware River to record the follow-up album. Over the next (very stressful) 6 months Anne Fredrickson jumped in on vocals/cello and the three finished their sprawling opus, Ashes Grammar. AG once again found the band pushing away from dream-pop convention into stranger waters, without losing the hooks.
Eager to take it on the road, the band grew to include Philadelphia life enthusiast, Adam Herndon on drums; long time ASDiG-fan, Ryan Newmyer on bass; and after a (seriously) global search, Brooklyn-based Jen Goma joined up and A Sunny Day in Glasgow was truly born. This group went on to release The Nitetime Rainbows EP, spent the better part of the next year touring North America and Europe (culminating with a show at Primavera), and capped it all off by releasing Autumn, Again (recorded while on tour), in October of 2010
The week following Ashes Grammar’s 2009 release saw Ben move to Sydney, Australia, and with Jen and Ryan calling Brooklyn home, the distance added challenges to the writing process, but recording of the new album began in December 2011 at Jeff Zeigler's Uniform Recording studio. After some twists and turns and an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, Sea When Absent was completed by September 2013. Fueled by this truly overwhelming support from their fans, A Sunny Day in Glasgow can't wait to send it out to the world via Lefse Records in 2014.

Introduction to Burlesque (December 2014)
No previous experience is necessary. This series of classes was designed and created with the novice dancer in mind, but experienced dancers looking to learn classic burlesque moves and techniques will also greatly benefit. Through a series of lessons and demonstrations which build upon one another, students will learn the fundamentals of burlesque dance. At the end of the course, you will have the building blocks to create your own fun and flirty dance routine. Over the four weeks we'll discuss burlesque-related topics like music selection, the art of costuming, and performing for an audience. Burlesque is a terrific form of expression for any woman. It builds confidence, comfort with your own body and it's great exercise too! This is a four-session course. All classes are from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and are taught at B.A.B.E. (119 Braintree St., #206, Allston, MA 02134). Cost: Drop-in Students: No registration is required, just come on over. Each class is designed to stand alone. The drop-in fee is $30 and must be paid in cash to the instructor at the beginning of the session. Pre-paid Students: Register and pay for the class on-line at least 24 hours before the class starts and save $5.00 Please Note: there are no refunds or transfers if you pre-register and cannot attend. Pre-registration is $25 and can be done on-line for one class or multiple classes! Course Commitment: To register for the full course for $99, please select "Monday, December 1" as the date you wish to register for, and then select the "All 4 classes" ticket. Sessions: Session #1 (Monday, December 1): Week One starts things off right with some Burlesque Basics. You'll learn that classic burlesque move, The Bump, plus how to turn your everyday steps in struts and slinky walks. For the striptease lesson, you'll be learning how to remove Long Gloves. We'll have some loaner gloves available, but if you've got a pair of your own, please bring them! Session #2 (Monday, December 8): This week's move is The Grind, those oh-so teasing and pleasing types of hip circles that are essential to classic burlesque. Combine it with Week One's lesson, you get the classic "bump 'n' grind". Week Two's striptease lessons are on Skirts and Shirts. Please bring a skirt with a zipper and a blouse with buttons. Since you'll be removing your clothes, you may want to wear shorts or leggings and a tank top underneath or fancy lingerie, depending on your comfort level. Session #3 (Monday, December 15): This week's move is The Shimmy, how to quiver and shake to the delight of your audience. We'll continue to build up our movement vocabulary that now includes both bumps and grinds. Week Three's striptease lesson is all about Stockings. Please bring a pair of thigh-high stockings to class. After you learn some Floorwork to highlight your lovely gams, we'll practice the provocative stocking remove. Session #4 (Monday, December 22): This week's move is Tassel Twirling -- the ultimate burlesque trick! You will need to bring pasties with tassels to class for this. We'll have a few pairs for sale. If you're uncomfortable appearing in just pasties, please wear a close-fitting tank-top under your bra and affix the pasties to that. It's harder to twirl, but we don't want anyone struggling beyond their comfort level. Week Four's striptease lesson is Removing a Bra. Please bring a back-fastening bra to class. See the above note about pasties and comfort levels. That applies here too. For extra fun, we'll be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory. If you have a boa, by all means bring it, but we'll also have some loner boas and a few for sale.

TASTE OFF: Italy vs. Spain


Italy and Spain both have long traditions of winemaking.  Both countries are known for some highly acclaimed wines and also for good values.  Their wines, however, are not always the easiest to understand.  What is the difference between Tempranillo and Rioja?  How does Vino Nobile di Montepulciano differ from Montepulciano d'Abruzzo?

 

Begin to unravel these mysteries and more at the Italy vs. Spain Wine Taste-Off.  We will provide some head-to-head match-ups of classic wines representing these two regions and let you be the judge.  In the process, you will learn basic wine tasting skills and how to describe the different personalities of these wines.  At the end, you can cast votes for your favorites, and we will declare a victor of this installment of the Taste-Off.

Wine, Cheese and the Pursuit of Happiness (Class + Dinner)

Wine and cheese seem like very different things, but they have much in common.  Both start as delicious, nutritious liquids which are shaped by nature and time into products which are more prized than the raw materials.  Join us in exploring the wondrous spectrum of wine and cheese.  Happiness abounds.

 

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.


The evening begins with a 2 hour class covering some of the fundamentals of tasting and pairing wine with cheese.  Class is followed by a delicious Italian dinner accompanied by white and red wines.

The Main Squeeze


The Main Squeeze is a raging funk experience born within the thriving live music scene of Bloomington, Indiana, and currently residing in Chicago, IL. Since coming together in late 2009 The Squeeze have managed to establish a unique sound and identity in a short period of time. Some of their most recent accomplishments include....

Winning an international battle of the bands in Macau, China against bands from all over the World.

Handpicked by Rolling Stones Magazine to open for The Roots and Janes Addiction at the official Superbowl XLVI tailgate party in Indianapolis.

Played for over 1,000 fans at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2012.

The Squeeze just released their debut self titled album in June 2012. Much like each member's varied backgrounds and influences, the album itself contains an eclectic blend of inspiration which seamlessly navigates through funk, rock, electro, and jazz, while still rooting itself in something that's uniquely their own. Whereas 'First Drops' found the band searching for their voice in the studio, their newest offering picks up miles beyond where they left off. Just one listen to tracks like the epic "I'll Take Another" (clocking in at nearly ten minutes), the soulful trifecta of "Where Do We Go", or the impeccable horn arrangements on "Mama Told Me" and it's clear that the band possesses a musical maturity well beyond their years.

Their unique ability to tackle and funkify such a wide variety of music makes each show a unique experience in its own right. Their live performances, which fuse soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves, and ripping solos have helped them develop a dedicated and rapidly growing fan base in the Midwest and the East Coast earning them slots at music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Summer Camp, Equifunk, Electric Forrest, Gathering of the Vibes and Aura.

If you’ve ever wondered whether the juice is worth the squeeze, you should look no further - The Main Squeeze is sure to be hitting a city near you sometime soon, leaving their crowd funkified and freshly squozen.

Caroline Rose - Thomas John Cadrin

Caroline Rose



Sometimes epic failures produce epic results. With the release of her new album I Will Not Be Afraid, keen-eyed young singer-songwriter Caroline Rose has broken her long string of short-circuits with a live-wire national debut that draws on her roots in rockabilly, vintage country and blues to capture her unique and personal vision.

Hoping to escape the dead ends that befell her hometown, colloquially dubbed a stop on "heroin highway", Rose found her way out via a full ride to a small liberal arts college, where she failed as a scholar, barely scraping by to graduation. Next came a stint as a failed hippie, working on and leaving an organic farm. She then bought a vintage sports car to travel the country, but it quickly broke down. On the plus side, Rose got a job at a cider distillery, where she got to taste apple brandy and applejack all day...Followed by a stint stocking shelves and sweeping floors at a grocery store for a boss who eventually fired her.

“That was the last straw,” Rose recounts. “I don't like most bosses and most bosses don't like me. I don't like most professors and most professors don't like me. So here I am. I've made my own way on my own terms and it's destiny knocking on my door. BAM!”

She describes the 11 songs on I Will Not Be Afraid as “postcards I’ve picked up from along the road,” and she means that literally. Rose is in perpetual motion. She tours and lives in her van, traveling the highways and back roads to fuel her creative spirit.

Rose’s wanderlust has taken the 24-year-old from her birthplace in a not-so-idyllic small Northeastern town to every corner of the nation, where she’s made friendships, heard stories and had experiences that she’s fashioned into songs like “America Religious,” which uses a driving snare drum with brushes and psychedelic folk fiddle to underpin the cool waterfall of her peaches and molasses voice as she sings about the open skies and the storm clouds inside the American heart. And in her own.

The themes of some of Rose’s songs are drawn from the familiar. “Blood On Your Bootheels,” which opens I Will Not Be Afraid with her prickly guitar and crazy-carnival organ, was inspired by the Trayvon Martin slaying and Rose’s own passionate reaction to violence and intolerance. "Everyone seems to have their opinions about how to live free in this country, especially when it comes to young men and even more especially when it comes to young black men like Trayvon," Rose observes. Injustice and hardship also underline “Tightrope Walker,” a song inspired by a friend’s stories about working in the school system of an impoverished Mississippi town.

But other songs literally haunt her dreams. The gorgeous textural arrangement and lyrics of “When You Go” — which evoke the openness of both the Southwest and of the future in Rose’s and co-producer Jer Coons’ shimmering guitars and her strong, defiant vocal performance — tumbled out during a night’s rest. “Sometimes songs come to me while I’m asleep and they wake me up, and that’s the best time for me to write,” Rose relates. “When I wake up my mind is like a clear glass of water. I can see everything and capture it.” That’s especially apt for the stream of consciousness lyrics that bring many of her numbers to life.

Rose’s own life seems more akin to Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Growing up in a coastal town, her parents — who were visual artists with a love for travel — gave Rose a restless, creative spirit. And like many working class seaside locales, her hometown suffers epidemic heroin abuse.

"I saw a lot of my friends get consumed by it, but I was one of the people that got out,” Rose says. “I worked my ass off to go to college and that really was my only plan of escape at that point. I think I was in denial about being an artist.”

For two of those years Rose worked on the aforementioned farm, hoping the experience would provide her with balance and direction. “I liked the work, but I’m too city to be country and too country to be city,” she offers. “So I moved on.” When Rose worked at a cider distillery, she slept in the barn loft where she recorded many of the demos for I Will Not Be Afraid with her acoustic guitar.

“I finally accepted the idea that writing, singing and playing songs is the only thing I’ve ever really been good at,” Rose relates, “so I decided to forget about everything else and live in my car, and I hit the road.”

Rose joined a new generation of touring songwriters who blend tradition, innovation and edginess, like Hayes Carll, whom she opened for in 2014 and bandmember Jer Coons, whom Rose shared a bill with one night and discovered to be a kindred spirit. Rose produced I Will Not Be Afraid with co-production by Coons at his Burlington, Vermont studio, where they also made Rose’s 2013 self-released America Religious, playing all the guitars, keyboards, harmonica, mandolin, drums and percussion themselves.

Rose explains that the title track is her mantra. “So many people are held back by fear,” she says. “They wish they could do something else with their lives, and they just can’t take the first step. I grew up questioning everything and learned that I needed to be on my own. I needed freedom and I needed to create on my own terms and to keep moving forward without fear, wherever I go.

“I also came to understand that I don’t have any choice,” she continues. “Music is what keeps me breathing. I can’t do anything else.”

Frontier Ruckus - The Novel Ideas, These Wild Plains
This event is 18 and over
Frontier Ruckus


"On the surface their music is a careful blend of folk and bluegrass, but below the obvious layer many fans sensed an intangible element ingrained within the notes and lyrics Frontier Ruckus, through some kind of rare ability, turned memories into melodies and transformed a from-the-inside-out examination of their native Michigan into a creaky back-porch storytelling session relevant well beyond the Great Lakes. Deadmalls and Nightfalls is a musical map to the psyches of its performers. You will want to know the words by heart to sing under the haze of summer starlight, alongside the roaming river, while drifting down forgotten backroads, and contemplating the causes and effects of urban sprawl." – PopMatters

"…delicate, finger-picked banjos, aching, oaky violin and the haunting voice of frontman Matthew Milia, who conjures what might happen had Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum been raised in a log cabin. Their songs are full of rich, rural details: frozen lakes, swaying trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night. Add to the mix baleful brass and trembling percussion, and you've got the perfect recipe for Gothic Americana." – Rolling Stone

White Arrows
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.

Attention, all true music lovers: Once you see the Ross Livermore Band, you won't forget them. The tightness of their soul-tinged rock grooves has ignited crowds and dance floors all over the East Coast. They have an honest, heart-and-soul approach that has not just made them a concert favorite, but has been heard on three well-respected records so far, propelled by the melodic songwriting of Livermore. They have an old-school rock dedication combined with a new-school energy that has won them a wide, cross-generational fan base. They're also about to embark on a novel campaign of making four video EPs of new songs recorded in various studios. They'll release one video per month from them for the next year as a treat for their fans. But rest assured that the best place to see them is still in a concert setting. Trust me, you'll come back for more.

Exit Verse (ex-Karate) - The Thalia Zedek Band
This event is 18 and over
Exit Verse (ex-Karate)

Singer/guitarist Geoff Farina (Karate, Secret Stars, Glorytellers) teamed up with drummer John Dugan (Chisel, Edsel) and bassist Pete Croke (Brokeback, Tight Phantoms) to form Chicago's Exit Verse early in 2013. On their debut album, Farina belts out catchy rockers with more vigor than he has in two decades. The album's concise, gutty anthems ring of the mid-90s when the guitar-driven Karate was shaking basements and DIY venues across the country. The angular rhythms of "Seeds" and the simmering "Fiddle & Flame" evoke the Karate of In Place Of Real Insight, but the new band demonstrates stronger rock roots, and resounds the classic rock radio and 70s/80s punk vinyl of Farina's youth. Farina still delivers his songs with the urgency of Karate's most bellicose moments, but with less self-consciousness and more determination
Farina has kept busy since Karate's 2005 demise: He recorded 3 records with his acoustic trio Glorytellers; toured and recorded with singer/guitarist Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine) and with the Roman folk band Ardecore; played hundreds of solo shows in Europe and the US; taught music history at DePaul University, the University of Maine, and Colby College; and recorded The Wishes of the Dead, his first solo record in over ten years. A recent stint in the short-lived Chicago punk-improv trio Bando refreshed Farina's appetite for loud guitars, and so, nearly 10 years after the dissolution of his last rock band, he formed Exit Verse.

The trio tracked these 9 songs during the summer of 2013 at Minbal in Chicago. Later in the year, Farina flew to Boston to do overdubs and mix with his long-time collaborator/engineer Andy Hong, and invited Thalia Zedek (Come, Live Skull) to sing on three of the album's tracks. The album was mastered in early 2014 at Chicago Mastering Services by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission Of Burma) Since the recording, drummer Chris Dye (Speck Mountain, Chin Up Chin Up) replaced Dugan, who left the band to meet work and family commitments.
