    Emma Frank

    Simon Jermyn will appear with Chris Lightcap, bass and Jim Black, drums.

     

    Osaka-born SiMoN’s music is described as “inspired music,” by Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier, and is a delightful addition to the local bill. Tamada’s work is a lo-fi mashup of different elements of stylistic pop. Recent single, “Beautiful Love” (2018) is a slow, ballad-esque jam with jazzy guitar chords and filtered vocals. Yuichiro Tamada has been actively pursuing music his whole life. In his early teens, he played in numerous alternative rock bands, and eventually began SiMoN in 2004. Since then, he has played over 900 shows, all over the world. Tamada has shared stages with artists likes Dinosaur Jr.,Phoenix,Cloud Nothings,The Raveonettes,Rhye,Nina Persson of The Cardigans, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

    Ruth Garbus with Kalbells Oct 19

    7:30 doors; $12 advance/ $15 door

    https://venuepilot.co/events/27315/orders/new

     

    I go back to Ruth’s music over and over again. She has the best, weirdest chord changes, the catchiest and most exotic melodies and lyrics, distilled over what I imagine to be many months and years.

    To me her songs reaffirm the power of music itself and its basic elements - big and small intervals placed just so in time, the play of sound and meaning in words, parts put together without force or artifice. Ruth is one of my favorite singer-songwriters ever. 

    - Chris Cohen

    The title of Ruth Garbus’ second record, Kleinmeister, translates to “Little Masters,” a German term for a group of 16th-century artists who produced prints from miniscule, labyrinthine engravings. Viewing their work half a millennium later, one is awed by the patience of such handmade precision. Such is the experience of listening to Garbus’ music, the intricacies of which inspire a similar quiet reverence.

    The Ladles, Taylor Ashton Nov 8

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

    The Ladles have three part female harmony perfected - but their sound is more than that… They are an amalgamation of their respective histories and influences, blending Swing, Old-Time, Folk, Pop and Choral music into a sound all their own. With sophisticated arrangements, they create a dreamy otherworldly atmosphere that draws audiences in and demands attention. They quiet noisy bars and liven up staid concert halls. The Ladles are Katie Martucci, Caroline Kuhn, and Lucia Pontoniere.

    After touring Canada for several years and releasing four albums with alt-folk outfit Fish & Bird, Taylor brought his clawhammer banjo, his guitar, and his rich baritone voice to New York City to sing songs about things that are hard to say and to make unexpected juxtapositions seem like the most natural thing in the world.

    Ali Dineen, Mamie Minch and Dawn Landes Nov 14

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

       

     

    Ali Dineen has been performing her original music and songs from the American folk tradition in New York and across the United States for the past several years, drawing upon music ranging from 1920s American jazz to Eastern European polyphony. Her lyrics are poetic and deeply personal, using narrative to draw connections between personal experience and larger histories. Audiences across the country have been captivated by her breathtaking voice and the power of her songs' messages. When not performing her original music, Ali also works with various projects including the Crimson Ragdolls and Bread and Puppet Theater, and works as a music educator. She is based in New York City.

     

    Dawn Landes is a Nashville based singer-songwriter whose music you might have heard if you watch The Good Wife, House or Gossip Girl. Along with releasing five albums since 2005 (and an EP inspired by yé-yé, ‘60s French pop music), she’s collaborated with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Norah Jones and composer Nico Muhly. She has appeared with the Boston Pops, the NYC Ballet and on the TED main stage. Dawn's most recent LP "Meet Me at the River" (Yep Roc) was recorded with legendary producer Fred Foster (Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton). She's currently writing the songs for a new musical called ROW about the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean, in development with Williamstown Theater Festival.

    7:30 Doors $15 adv/ $18 doors

    https://venuepilot.co/events/29110/orders/new

     

    Brittain Ashford starred in the 2017 Broadway hit, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, as well as Dave Malloy's Off-Broadway song-cycle, Ghost Quartet.
    She’s put out two albums with her own band, Prairie Empire, and has just released a new solo album of re-tooled show tunes, "run through a David Lynch filter," called Drama Club. Of Ashford's voice, The New York Times said: “Delicate and defiant... the kind of husky ethereality that can stop you in your tracks.”
     
    ***
     
    Advance Base is the solo project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone).  Using a two-handed arsenal of electric piano, Omnichord, samplers, effect pedals & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed ballads around his conversational baritone. The warm, electronic sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."  .

    Miles Okazaki's Trickster, Lesley Mok , & Charlotte Jacobs Nov 23

    7:30 Doors, $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

    Guitarist-composer Miles Okazaki has a head for intricate structure and elegant convolution, and his best outlet so far has been Trickster, a band with two fellow alumni of Steve Coleman’s Five Elements. Along with that dynamic duo — bassist Anthony Tidd, drummer Sean Rickman — there’s a spot in the matrix for piano. On the group’s 2017 self-titled debut, that role belonged to Craig Taborn; on The Sky Below it falls to Matt Mitchell, who’s well equipped to flip tricks into treats. Oct. 31, Pi Recordings.
