- GottaGetGon Folk Festival 2016 Event on 2016-05-27 18:00:00 The GottaGetGon is a friendly little folk festival put on by volunteers every Memorial Day Weekend since 1970. It's designed for folks who believe that music is part of life. It is a place where grownups, teens, and children can be part of the experience of sharing music, time, and friendship. The festival starts Friday evening with a NEW FOLKS SHOWCASE at 8 PM. This year we feature: THE YOUNG NOVELISTS – Beautiful harmonies on songs culled from their small-town roots in rural Canada. They are the winners of the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year 5 MILE STRING BAND – A rockin' old-time string band from Brooklyn with an infectious sound and irresistible energy. MAX HATT / EDDA GLASS – Jazz-Americana duo from New Mexico that is "subtly poignant, elegantly funky, and haunting without trying to be. (Nels Cline, Wilco) Our HEADLINERS will offer formal concerts, workshops, and plenty of casual jamming on the campgrounds throughout the festival. See our website (http://www.pickingandsinging.org/web2011/GGG.html) for schedule details: ATWATER-DONNELLY This highly praised husband-wife duo from Rhode Island is well known to fans of traditional music throughout the U.S. and Europe. They blend appealing vocals with an astounding array of instruments including the mountain dulcimer, old-time banjo, tin whistle, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, limberjacks, feet and more. Their repertoire includes traditional American and Celtic folk songs, a capella pieces, old-time gospel songs, dance tunes, and original works. They have researched traditional folk music and dance in Appalachia, the Ozarks, New England, Ireland, England and Prince Edward Island and are well known to fans of traditional folk music in the U.S. and Europe for their wonderful performances and engaging workshops. CHARLIE PARR "Parr is a folk artist for the new American Dust Bowl, a resonator-ready troubadour armed with a well-worn satchel of troubled tales that cut to the heart of a nation mired in fear and in dire need of a roots-music revival." ACOUSTIC GUITAR MAGAZINE Minnesota's Charlie Parr is blistering finger-picker who switches between acoustic guitar, dobro and banjo. His keening, cut-through-the-crowd vocals resonate with a conviction that runs deep and true. It's the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up with his dad's recordings of America's musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin' Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. His heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals are rooted in a humble upbringing as the son of two proud union meatpackers. He has thirteen albums to his name and plays more than 250 shows a year world-wide. BEN MILLER & ANITA MACDONALD QUARTET This first-rate Celtic quartet combines the fiery sound of the Scottish Border pipes (Ben) with rich Cape Breton fiddle (Anita), accompanied by Tyson Chen on Cape Breton-style piano and PEI guitarist and fiddler Zakk Cormier. Following a stint in the internationally acclaimed Scotia-Glenville Pipe Band, band leader and Queensbury, NY native Ben Miller pursued his lifelong love of the pipes all the way to the University of Edinburgh, where he completed a post-grad degree at their School of Scottish studies. Anita MacDonald adds the fiddle tunes and Gaelic songs of her native Cape Breton to the band's repertoire. HEATHER PIERSON TRIO At the seat of a piano or brandishing an acoustic guitar, tenor banjo, or melodica, Heather Pierson transforms from a quiet, serious figure into a world-class performer, opening her heart in a manner that leaves her listeners hungering for more. Her live performances move seamlessly from New Orleans jazz and blues to rousing Americana and poignant, original ballads. She's accompanied by Shawn Nadeau on upright bass and the GottaGetGon's own Davy Sturtevant on guitar, mandolin, dobro, fiddle and cornet, giving this ensemble a dynamic range that is truly impressive.

- The Tallest Man On Earth Event on 2016-07-01 20:00:00 with Lady Lamb
Dark Bird Is Home doesn't feel like it came from one time, one place, or one tape machine. The songs and sounds were captured in various countries, studios, and barns, and they carry a weather-worn quality, some dirt and some grit.If you're a fan of The Tallest Man On Earth, Dark Bird pays real tribute to the old records you fell for, and goes new places you're going to love as well. If you're new to The Man: holy shit! Many would be jealous of your position. Enjoy these songs, and know there are 40 or more other gems waiting on earlier albums and singles.Early in Dark Bird, toward the end of the opening track, we hear other voices and sounds backing Kristian Matsson's own. One of them, later credited in the liner notes with Angel Vocals, shows up several times throughout the record, adding new color to the familiar palette. And so the story grows and expands. That first song has horns and a piano, keyboards, synthesizers, and other modern noisemakers… and by track two you've got The Tallest Man on Earth as full-throttle rock and roll.While Dark Bird is The Tallest Man at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, it's also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings which feels fresh for The Tallest Man on Earth, and well timed. Reliably, the melodies and arrangements are sturdy and classic, like old cars & tightly wound clocks. The lyrics and their delivery are both comforting and alarming, like tall trees & wide hills.The other musicians and layers on this recording put a wide lens on familiar themes. Fear and darkness, sleep or lack of it, dreams in the dark and in the light. Moving, leaving, going. Distance and short stops, long straight lines, temporal places. More hopefully, a grateful nod to a traveling partner, a healing mind. Maybe a little forgiveness needed. Definitely some things to forget.And of course, that last song. The title track. If there is a little legend-building to be done here, let it be this scene a few of the album's early-listeners can recount: Kristian gently warning them over their shoulder before track ten begins: "Watch out for this one."You should expect the loudest and proudest sounds yet from The Tallest Man on Earth on album number four, but also the softest and the lowest. For the next few years, the Dark Bird tour will come to your city or a town nearby, and for the first time The Man is bringing a band to the stage with him. at College Street Music Hall. 238 College Street New Haven, United States

Alejandro Escovedo (Solo)
Sunday, May 29, 2016
Doors: 6:30 p.m.; Show: 7 p.m.
Stoltz Listening Room
"His set was rumbling roots-punk guitar gunslinging at its most fierce and hip" Alison Fensterstock, writing about Escovedo's 2014 performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
With over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, Alejandro Escovedo has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation with a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives.
Regardless of the style he plays "everything from his early days with punk band The Nuns (which opened for The Sex Pistols at Winterland) to his work with the post-punk band Rank and File and The True Believers" Escovedo's crafty, intelligent music always goes right to the heart of his audience.

- Eve 6 Event on 2016-06-02 20:00:00 with Oz, Christina Holmes
Max Collins Vocals and BassJon Siebels GuitarTony Fagenson DrumsEve 6 weren't even legal drinking age when they were presented with their first platinum record. Thus, life came hard and fast at the members of SoCal pop-punk trio, whose meteoric success in the late '90s and early millennium ingrained their anthemic radio hits into the fabric of the lives of a whole generation. Then, it all sort of endeduntil now.Reunited and re-energized, the band has returned with album Speak In Code eight years after parting ways in 2004. As the fourth full-length release for Eve 6 and their debut on new label Fearless Records, the album heralds not just a return to form for the threesome, but a new chapter in a book that had ended all too abruptly."Overall I'm really proud of it, and I think we're doing right by our fans, who've waited a long time for us to make another record. I think we're giving them something they'll enjoy," says singer/bassist Max Collins. "Once we got in the studio there was a lot of energy. There aren't any filler moments; each song has its purpose. This is the strongest collection of songs we've ever had on one record."Eve 6which also includes drummer Tony Fagenson and guitarist Jon Siebelsformed in Southern California in 1995 while the trio were just teenagers, then inked a deal with RCA Records before they'd finished high school. The band issued the self-titled Eve 6 in 1998, attaining platinum success with hit singles "Inside Out" and "Leech," the former capturing the #1 spot on the Modern Rock charts and crossing over successfully to Top 40 radio. More widespread recognition came with gold-selling sophomore effort Horrorscope (2000), which spawned radio gems "Promise," "On The Roof Again" and the ubiquitous prom and MTV anthem "Here's To The Night".It seemed like Eve 6 were everywherethe band made appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and TRL with Carson Daly, with their videos in constant rotation on MTV. The band then released the more experimental It's All In Your Head in 2003, featuring singles "Think Twice" and "At Least We're Dreaming," but parted ways with RCA thereafter. Their rapid rise to prominence at an early age had led to an inevitable mental and physical exhaustion, and in 2004 Eve 6 announced an indefinite hiatus. It was time to turn a new page."There were parts which were fucking incredible, and amazing and awesome, and there were aspects that were terrifying and freaky that you don't know how to handle. I feel like we did some growing up in public," says Collins. "I needed to stop drinking. In order to do that, the wheels had to come off. I don't think I could have done it if the band was still going."After a year apart, Collins and Fagenson began writing and producing for other artists, including 2007's hit ballad "We Don't Have To Look Back Now" for rock band Puddle of Mudd, and collaborating on a new experimental side project, the Sugi Tap. "It was an inspiring time, going down different musical avenues together and trying things we wouldn't have in Eve 6," reflects Fagenson. "Ironically, when we did reform Eve 6 a couple years later, those experiments allowed us to progress the sound of the band more freely than if we had been in the band the whole time."Collins and Fagenson eventually reignited Eve 6 in 2008, with guitarist Matt Bair temporarily replacing Siebels who was occupied with his project Monsters Are Waiting. The band spent the next two-plus years touring, writing and reconnecting with fans, then in 2011, armed with new material and management, signed with Fearless Records. A month within inking the deal Collins and Fagenson finally convinced Siebels to return to the fold."After going down some different paths it hit me that there was this thing out there that people wanted and wanted to hear," explains Siebels. "It just clicked and made sense to me. After such a long break I was so happy to be playing with these guys again." Continues Fagenson, "The way [Siebels] hits the strings and puts that muscle into the chords is very distinctive to our band, and that was a welcome piece of the sound that we had missed. Songs that had been kicking around for a couple years got new life with his playing put into them." Eve 6 then re-enlisted Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Dashboard Confessional, Good Charlotte, Pearl Jam)who produced the first two Eve 6 full-lengthsto helm the sessions for Speak In Code. With all the lead time, the album contains a mix of compositions that began as far back as the side project, as well as recent works written in the months leading up to the recording process. "We were really taking a 'best of everything' sort of approach, almost like a band's first album, in which there's a lot of material to choose from," Fagenson notes. "About half the songs were standouts from what Max and I had been working on and demoing over the years, and the other half were newer ideas that came with the inspiration of Jon's return and all that was happening to us at the time. We have a unique process, where each song is sort of its own animal. Don was crucial in helping us tighten everything up, and inspiring Max to dig really deep lyrically and get to some root emotion down there." Explains Collins, "Neil Finn [of Crowded House] once said, 'A great producer is someone whom you admire musically and otherwise, who you feel compelled to show up and show off for.' I feel like Don is that figure for me and the band."In many ways, Speak In Code is a work with deep personal significance for Collins, who has weathered his share of personal adversity. The album is a testament to coming out okay on the other side, with friendships still intact, but it's within the journey that the story truly lies. Whether it's romantic relationships or dealings with his bandmates, communicationand its barriersis a central theme underpinning the release."In some of the songs frustration is a theme. I was sort of looking at difficult personal relationships with a humorous spin in some places, and with more earnestness in others," explains Collins. "The title [Speak In Code] is a lyric from 'Curtain,' and there was something kind of evocative about it. In that song, I'm referring to being newly sober and just feeling like an open nerve, feeling freaked out, having people and life being sort of overwhelming. It's almost like people are speaking a language you don't understand."Opening track "Curtain" is a pivotal moment for several reasonsnot only does it provide a title concept, but it also speaks to the group's return from hiatus, drawing on the relations between the notoriously volatile Gallagher brothers from Britpop icons Oasis. "There was a lot that I could identify with there," Collins says. "Being in a band is like a marriage; it's like a family. You're in the trenches with these guys, and sometimes it's easy and awesome, and sometimes it's not so easy."First single "Victoria" lyrically weaves a tale that draws the listener into a hook-laden, 80's-influenced anthem, putting a contemporary spin on the classic Eve 6 sound. "['Victoria'] indulges this paranoid what-if fantasy that kind of has a foot in the truth: My wife went on this girls' vacation to Mexico, and when I was looking through the photos, I saw my imagination start to go, and wrote that song," Collins recalls. "I'm convinced in my mind that something's going on that really isn't."Far from being just some nefarious nostalgia cash-in, Speak In Code is a genuine example of triumphing over one's obstacles, both professionally and personally, seven years in the making. Eve 6 say the time rebuilding was essential to regaining their footing, which seems more solid in 2012 than ever. "In a lot of ways, the years leading up to this album release was a bit of a 'paying our dues' situation. We certainly had to earn the right to have this opportunity again," says Fagenson. "This time around I think we realized just how hard it is to really get a rock band going and just when you think you're near the finish line you realize there's another hundred miles to go. But all that work and time simply strengthened our belief in what we were doing, and it was a crucial aspect of our development. It really taught us about stick-with-it-ness and perseverance.""The time we spent apart really made us appreciate what we have in each other. It's a chemistry you can't manufacture," adds Collins. "We literally grew up playing music together. The bond that we have as a result of so much shared experience infuses the sound of the band."In support of Speak In Code, Eve 6 recently took to the road with The All-American Rejects and with Everclear. Diehards who caught the band live in prior years will undoubtedly be thrilled to see the trio once again on stage, but it will be a somewhat older, definitely wiser group that greets them. According to Collins, it's all good. "We're looking forward to playing new songs, and reconnecting to the fans with new material," says Collins. "I feel this profound gratitude to the other two guys in my band. We've been through a lotwe've had the mountaintop moments and the Death Valley momentsand we're still here today, we all get along, and we made this thing together. It's almost miraculous, to me. There's this convergence that goes on for something that's bigger than the sum of its parts, and that's such a joyful, cool fucking thing." at The Crowbar 1812 17th St N Tampa, United States
