One of my personal favorites – the dark, luscious and mysterious Jaggery – is in the midst of some special performances at the cozy Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, for their first ever residency. Supporting them are some of Boston’s most fascinating musicians with new bands and projects.share this:
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.

For their first show of the year, Bent Wit Cabaret will be examining the theme of Obsession, with a crazy cast that includes “regulars” such as co-hostesses Karin Webb and Mary Dolan, Sugar Dish (The Slutcracker), burlesque artist Femme Brulee, Lainey SchoolTree, and Bent Wit Cabaret’s house band, Elephant Tango Ensemble. The band features Valerie Thompson and Vessela Stoyanova (Goli) on vocals/cello and MIDI marimba; and Nate Greenslit (HUMANWINE, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?) on percussion.
Special features this evening will be Brian King from â€œWhat Time Is It, Mr. Fox?â€, commedia antics by Behind The Mask, spoken word by Jha D, bellydance by the exotic Divine Filth and video shorts curated by the madmen at the Boston Underground Film Festival.share this:
No fancy embellishment; just a quick rundown of some Boston-area bands of note this week, before the week’s over. Thursday is a busy night. The Kristen Ford Band is at Precinct (Union Square, Somerville) with Goli, Box Five, and School for Robots. Thursday also brings newly transplanted from Maine but now Boston local, the absolutely brilliant Lady Lamb The Beekeeper, to the Lizard Lounge, along with Angeline and Naked On Rollerskates. It also begins a three-night residency at Club Passim for folk songstress Lori McKenna. And on Saturday, Boston Americana-folk-rock favorite Cassavettes sadly performs their final show at the cozy Middle East Upstairs, joined by the Luxury and the Autumn Hollow Band.share this:
There’s so much great music to check out this week, I can only touch on some of it. See listings on the sidebar for more, and please let me know if I’m missing something interesting (I frequently do). We’ve got two FREE daytime concert series in four different locations, presented by arts organizations around Cambridge. Somerville has their annual Art Beat happening Friday and Saturday in Davis Square. And there’s interesting shows (and a few new album releases) coming up with Laura Jorgensen and Nature In The City; Rob Potylo and HUMANWINE; and Sarah RabDAU and Goli.share this:
