Event on 2017-06-17 19:30:00
8pm- Hamin Reed
For fans of: Elliott Smith, Tool
Hamin Reed [hay min reid] conveys love & hate, dark & light, everything between & everything outside, and what it means to the human psyche. Born in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1984, he has been performing regularly solo or with different musicians from all over the world. Currently based in New York City.
"An acoustic artist who challenges the notions of wood, strings, and sentiment . . . Just as much a slap in the face of your "folky" values as it is an embrace of humanity song, craft, and experiment." -- Jason Medina (Producer/Promoter, Transient Authority)
"Jeff Andrade's musical project Hamin Reed goes unparalleled in its diversity of sound and talent. His voice is warm and heartbreaking on ballads and he can rock harder than any hardcore musician I've seen. The lyrics are thought provoking and emotionally moving to whimsically entertaining. Hamin Reed crosses a plethora of genres with a facility that does not make their performances seem disjointed. It is to say that whilst traversing through a variety of styles, there exists a continuity that is never lacking. Hamin Reed is an act that defines what more acts in current state should be, talented, creative and entertaining." -- Daniel Ouellette (Performance Artist, Daniel Ouellette and the Shobijin)
"Get inside the head and heart of one of the most evoking songwriters I have ever encountered. Genius insight to the world and who we are in it. I've been everywhere from Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to The Bitter End in NYC listening to hundreds of songwriters and none have been quite as prodigious as Jeff. He has inspired and ignited me as both a listener and a producer-songwriter. He has been an exquisite new addition to my ipod as well as an amazing addition to my life as a friend. Check him out. You will not regret it." -- Nicole Berkowitz (Producer-songwriter, The Willow Tree)
9pm- Nathan Leigh
Genre: Indie Folk
For fans of: The Mountain Goats, Andrew Bird, Tim Kasher, David Bazan
Somewhere between loud raucous folk music and delicately hushed punk rock, Nathan Leigh and the Traveling Salesmen merge a uniquely eclectic sound with captivating storytelling. Songs vary from sing-along political anthems to deeply personal stories of loss and hardship set to guitars, saxophones, and found percussion. After a 5 month US tour, the band has been holed up in Brooklyn working on their next album Ordinary Eternal Machinery, set to be released this summer.
"'Icarus' benefits from Nathan Leigh’s generally clever lyrics and tangy score — a little Weill, a little Mumford." - Scott Heller, The New York Times
"'A Life in Transit' is a songbook for our time. Beneath the highs and lows is an undercurrent of resilience and optimism for the future and all the opportunities that the open road has to offer." - Patrick Widdess, Delusions of Adequacy
10pm- A Valley Son
For fans of: Father John Misty and Band of Horses
90s shoegaze rock with a twang.
