Flightless Buttress, Goli, The And Company @ Yes.Oui.Si, 19 Vancouver St., Boston MA (E train on Green Line to Museum of Fine Arts, look left), Saturday July 9 – tonight! at 7pm, $5 donation.

Here’s an absolutely wonderful gathering of musicians at what sounds like a fantastic new music listening space. Which of course I just found out about this morning. If you enjoy chamber music with a modern pop twist, most definitely visit this new art & performance space, Yes.Oui.Si, near the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This evening features the quirky percussive and pretty folk-pop of The And Company, the uber-classy cello and marimba duo Goli, and the gorgeous, soaring guitar and cello melodies of John Nolan and Calin Peters a.k.a. Flightless Buttress.

I present to you two evenings of stark contrast: a theatrical spectacular of epic proportions – the closing night of Evelyn Evelyn‘s whirlwind worldwide tour, with special guests Amanda Palmer, Jason Webley, and Sxip Shirey), followed by an ultra-special afterparty featuring Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys and Jaggery at the House of Blues Saturday night; and For the Sake of the Song, a stripped-down, unplugged acoustic showcase founded by Boston musician Patrick Coman, also featuring local singer-songwriters Dan Emino and Levi Schmidt, and indie folk duo Flightless Buttress, which touches down on Sunday at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston.

Boston Bands This Week (03/08/10)…

Mary Lou Lord, The John Powhida International Airport, and Danielle Doyle.

Mary Lou Lord, The John Powhida International Airport, and Danielle Doyle.

Marching boldly into my latest installment of “Boston Bands This Week”. We start with “a classic”, Mary Lou Lord, whom I must be recalling from the early 90s when I first moved to Boston. She’s doing a special acoustic performance on Wednesday at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, which will probably sell out if it hasn’t already. Then there’s a few very cool bands playing at P.A.’s Lounge on Friday, including a personal favorite, the wacky and wonderful John Powhida International Airport. Finally on Saturday, there’s a CD release party for someone who just recently came to my attention, Somerville-based singer-songwriter Danielle Doyle, who’s joined, once again, by some cool local bands – this time, in the acoustic, ambient, and Americana vein.
