    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    May 27- Pamelia Stickney w/ Sugarlife + special guests  8pm

    It's a celebration and if you dont know why, you'll probably figure it out by being there!   everything from extremely disciplined to completely out of control... written and improvised... because it's such a special day, there'll be some special peeps there who i'm gonna have to call up to play...   and it's my last concert on the east coast for a while, come out to say ciao ciao!

    Sugarlife is Christian Dautresme (voice) , Stuart Popejoy (keys), Danny Tunick (drums) and whenever i'm in town, i always make a point to play with them! 

    something funny, something scary, something below the earth's crust at any moment will spew out.  heavenly voices, hellish grooves, hedonist harmonies.

    7:30 doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TViRzuvEask

    It's Gemini season and the shows are not what they seem. Featuring chamber music by Du.0, dance by Loud Relations, poetry reading by Sarah Edwards and Rami Karim, and songs by Loosie at The Owl Music Parlor in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn.


    8PM - Du.0 - Charlotte Munn-Wood & Aimee Niemann, violinists & professional noisemakers [chamber music / new music / old music]
    9PM - Loud Relations - Sophie Bromberg and Lindsey Weaving. They make movement based work for you to watch. ✨ [dance / movement / weirdness]
    10PM - Loosie - "Fever Dream Pop” from Brooklyn. Intimate and vulnerable pop songs of drummer-songwriter Alex Kirkpatrick come up for air beneath a slurry of rich and dense textures from shoegaze and improvised music. Anxiety, addiction, and alienation through technology are packaged with healthy doses of feeling-yourself, love for companions, and the good kinds of growing pains. [indie / sperimental / rock friend]
    Sarah and Rami will read in between sets.

    Dervisi June 17

    7:30 doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

     

    The awesomely dark and mysterious songs and dances of the old-time Greek Rembetika underworld, originally performed by the hashish clans, gangsters and pimps of a now vanished Mediterranean subculture and the Greek bouzouki songwriters who mythologized it... YOU WILL ALL DANCE in ODD METERS because ODD IS GOD, baby! 

    Background:
    DERVISI perform a contemporary version of acoustic GREEK GANGSTA  BLUES...
    A repertoire derived from REMBETIKA and related Greek popular music.
    They are actually a small sect of New York musicians of Greek extraction who have stumbled into a time warp-
    They inhabit, when performing, a parallel world, where they present these songs as 
    expressions of their lifestyle, based on their affinity for sitting around their TEKE  (clubhouse) imbibing certain special
    herbal remedies that they acquire in the course of their Import-Export activities... 
    The core of DERVISI is
    GEORGE "BARBA YIORGI" :  Vocals, Tzoura (small trikordo bouzouki) and guitar
    STELIO "HOMEBOY STEVE" ANTONAKOS: Guitar and vocals
    PETER "PETROS" DERVISI:   Greek Baghlama and dumbek

    Dervisi Recreate a Shadowy World of Gangsters, Underground Revolutionaries and Hash Smoke”… New York Music Daily
