    Lula Wiles and Robt Sarazin Blake & The Letters


    If you ask Lula Wiles about their self-titled debut album, they’ll be quick to tell you it was a long time coming. The album’s eleven original songs were written over the course of the preceding four years, tested and lived in on stages and in bedrooms and backyards in Maine and Boston, and reborn in November and December 2015 through the band’s collaboration with producer/ guitarist Adam Iredale-Gray and drummer Sean Trischka.

    An Intimate Evening with Paranoid Social Club, w/ Dominic Lavoie and Yes We Kin


    In 2004 Paranoid Social Club dropped their sophomore release following the success of their debut album, Axis II. Few expected the sprawling, 26 song double album known as Axis I & III. With hits and perennial live standards like Two Girls, Rhythm Is and The Cable Hook Up residing on the typically high energy, tongue in cheek and subversive Axis III, less attention was paid to the quieter second half of the collection, Axis I.

    John Craigie w/ Joel Thetford


    If John Prine and Mitch Hedberg had a baby, the resulting product would resemble something very close to Portland, OR singer-songwriter John Craigie. Musically comparable to Prine, with the humor and wit of Hedberg, the humble, gracious, and hilarious Craigie is one of the best storytellers of our time. It’s no wonder that Chuck Norris sends him fan mail, and Todd Snider brings him gifts on stage.

    Eric Bettencourt & Ben Balmer


    Eric is an award-winning songwriter based in Austin Texas. With a quick wit and controlled-intensity Bettencourt brings his live shows to life using an expansive catalog of original crowd-pleasing songs. Where so many artists are content recycling the same old sounds and songs Bettencourt is one of the rare few able to forge his own. Utilizing his piano-like 6 &12 string finger-style guitar work and a natural vocal delivery, somewhere between Ray LaMontagne and Robert Plant, he never lingers long in any one sound.

    Arc Iris Reimagines Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”


    After releasing two ambitious studio albums and relentlessly touring for the last three years, Providence, RI art-pop power trio Arc Iris is ready to unveil its next project to the world: a complete re-imagination of Joni Mitchell's seminal album Blue. Whereas acoustic guitars and minimal arrangements are some of the hallmarks on Mitchell's original recording, Arc Iris' interpretation of the music is bold and modern. The band mixes the sounds of symphonic analogue synths, heavy drum beats, and sampling, while the iconic songs themselves are never swallowed up by the tide of these inventive arrangements.
