Akie Bermiss • Kazemde George • Yotam Ben-Or June 47:30 Door 8:00 Show $12.00 suggested donation

Kazemde George is an African American jazz saxophonist, composer, and beat-maker based in Brooklyn who exhibits a gift for streamlined, emotionally direct melodies, articulated with a warm tone and a certain guiding restraint. Inspired in equal parts by the jazz canon and hip hop producers such as J Dilla, Madlib, Kaz has expanded his focus to a full spectrum of musical styles which blossomed from the African Diaspora, including Afro-Cuban, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Brazilian, and African-American traditions. As he sees it, the study of these musical styles serves as a way to regain cultural histories that were lost through the processes of African-American Slavery. Today, his focus is aligned towards music, but Kazemde is also a biologist at heart, and his quest to understand this wide breadth of styles is driven by an analytical mind with a scientific approach.Israeli-Belgian harmonica player Yotam Ben-Or and Brazilian guitarist Leandro Pelegrino come together to create a unique set of original music as well as their personal takes on some of their favorite Brazilian and Jazz tunes. Ben-Or and Pelegrino have been steadily developing their reputation as some of the finest musicians on their instruments and as composers. They both moved to the US upon receiving full scholarships to study at Berklee and The New School. They performed at venues and festivals such as: Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Blue Note NYC, Montreux Jazz Festival, Festival da Jazz St. Moritz, and shared the stage with musicians such as: Dave Liebman, Danilo Perez, John Pattittuci, Terri Lyne Carrington, Eric Harland, Edmar Castañeda, and more.

Strawberry Runners • Nicomo • Isaac Gillespie Jun 107:30 Door 8:00 Show $12.00 suggested donationStrawberry Runners is the project of Hudson River Valley-based songwriter, Emi Night. The richness of her music is in Emi’s tender and easy integration of the varied styles she’s called home: most of the songs maintain a humble faith in brevity; melody compels every word with the mystery and familiarity of a hymn. These are the kind of songs that ring true no matter how close or far they hew to the experience of the listener; they are pictures painted from a life too often troubled by brutality and grief, but also graced with an inheritance of compassion, resolve, and — best of all for us — music.Nicomo is a shot in the dark parallel park, a hole-in-one-in-a-million, needle in a full-stack flapjack of syrupy vocal lines and buttery fingerpicky guitar. Songs on your shoulder, impressionistic folk and strolling waves, shadows and conversations misunderstood. Nicomo is the songwriting project of Nico Osborne, Brooklyn-based musician and sound artist. Antiquated Future Records calls their first EP Views “An early-morning hangout album meets complex after-dark mood music.” Nicomo is working on an LP now, exploring brighter colors and tighter turns.
Emerging from the antifolk scene of the late 2000’s, Isaac Gillespie is a NY-based songwriter, performer and man-about-town. Blending folk-song storytelling with the energy of punk and the elasticity of gospel, the Gillespie-fronted The Due Diligence was a mainstay of 2010’s Brooklyn DIY. All the while, Gillespie continued to write and perform (and in 2019 release) the more delicate songs of his acoustic beginnings. Over the years he’s had the honor to write and record with everyone from Shakey Graves to Landlady’s Adam Schatz as well as members of BLEACHERS, Phosphorescent, Son Lux and Ava Luna.

Her latest album as a bandleader, Sisterly, won best Adult Contemporary Album at the Independent Music Awards in 2019. Her writing and performance styles are the product of 20 years of experimentation and practice, learning on her feet as a side-person and bandleader in New York’s wide-ranging music communities. “I grew up in a household where music-making and storytelling––far from a rarified vocation for prodigies and professionals––was an act woven into the social life of our family and friends, ” she says. “I carry that spirit with me into the music I make today.” This year has seen the release of her duo Robinson & Rohe’s sophomore full-length album Into the Night (Righteous Babe Records), as well as the debut of her song cycle / memoir, 74 Corridor, a project for which Jean won a 2022 Brooklyn Arts Council Grant.

Adeline Hotel • Dead Gowns • h. pruz Jul 137:30 Door 8:00 Show $12.00 suggested donation
Adeline Hotel is the Brooklyn based musical collective led by Dan Knishkowy. Following 2020’s folk-rock opus Solid Love, 2021 saw the release of both Good Timing and The Cherries Are Speaking, each a daring shift away from Knishkowy’s previous work. Good Timing, a series of “exquisite acoustic guitar instrumentals”, received acclaim from Pitchfork, Aquarium Drunkard, and Stereogum, amongst others. Eschewing the intricate guitar work of Good Timing in favor of breezy piano lines inspired by Ethiopian jazz, Cherries is a series of miniature baroque pop songs and, quietly, his most ambitious work to date. Live, Adeline Hotel can be many things: a solo guitar, pastoral woodwinds, ambient free form and composed rock band alike. The one constant is the spirit of collaboration and exploration, a dream-like sense of seeking. @adeline.hotel | https://adelinehotel.bandcamp.com/
Dead Gowns is the project of Portland-Maine singer-songwriter Geneviève Beaudoin. In her latest collection, the HOW EP, she pushes “expressive arrangements and raw melodies into a glowing spectacle” (Foxy Digitalis). Both urgent and sincere, it’s “the sound of a songwriter coming good on all her promises and then some” (For the Rabbits). @voila_deadgowns | https://deadgowns.bandcamp.com/
h. pruz is the solo project of Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Hannah Pruzinsky (they/she). h.pruz released their debut EP “again, there” in late 2022 via Oof Records. The collection of songs is a front porch with wind chimes sounding; a nap on the couch on a summer afternoon; a pair of dirty hands in compost, letting dead things turn into something richer, kinder. h. pruz expects to release their first full length album very, very soon. @hanapruz | https://hpruz.bandcamp.com/
