*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*8 PM Doors9 PM ShowZOPAZOPA is Elijah Amitin, Michael Imperioli, and Olmo Tighe. The three-part New York indie-rock band is ZOPA, “patience” in Tibetan. And also the middle word of Michael’s Buddhist name: Konchog Zopa Sonam.“When you lose your patience, you lose your love.” Garchen RinpocheThe trio’s story is one of chance connections, tracing to ’83 when at age 17, Imperoli began “kicking it in the city,” choosing the arts over college. It was a fertile time in NY to explore theater, art, music— still connected to the late ’60s early ’70s underground scene that largely informed Imperioli’s artistic consciousness. That same year, Amitin and Tighe were born. Amitin grew up going to Latin music clubs with his father Mike Amitin who was a salsa musician in the golden era of the New York Latin music scene. Tighe comes from an avant-garde art background, who at age 14, handed Amitin a Shuggie Otis record and has continued to expand Amitin’s musical horizons. Amitin and Tighe played music together in high school in the early aughts, Amitin on bass and Tighe on drums.In ‘91 Tighe and Imperioli shared the screen in Postcards from America, fifteen years later Imperioli heard Tighe was a drummer, and years after that, headed to The Strand where Tighe worked and “scooped him up” to be the drummer in his new band. They’re family now. Tighe married Imperioli’s cousin. Tighe invited Amitin along for their first practice session and the day before, Amitin ran into Michael on the street by chance greeting him with; “I’m playing with you tomorrow.”“What’s even more serendipitous is that they are two of the best human beings I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Our first practice was in February of 2006 in NYC, our first gig was in June of that year at Cabaret Maxime in Lisbon and our first record was released in the infamous Summer of 2020. Along the way we did tons of shows in NYC, played on bills with the likes of Robert Pollard, David Johanson, Tommy Stinson, Walter Lure, Jesse Malin and Richard Butler, did an East coast tour of America, a few gigs in L.A. and returned once to Lisbon. It feels like we are just getting started.” – ImperioliIn covering Lou Reed’s “Ocean” and “Heroin” ZOPA’s sound taps into a collective nostalgic past, echoing the transcendent spaces of New York punk rock’n’roll. Relying on analog technology and minimal overdubbing for their production, their vintage sound takes center stage in live performance and recordings.https://zopa.bandcamp.com/THE MYSTERY LIGHTSOriginally from the small town of Salinas, California and now based in NYC, The Mystery Lights’ live shows gradually became the stuff of legend as the quintet won their following one fan at a time in dives from Brooklyn to the Bowery. The Lights’ sound has evolved into a fuzz-fueled hopped-up 21st Century take on 60s garage pebbles, and artful 70s punk, that is all their own.https://themysterylights.bandcamp.com/GRASS CANNONGrass Cannon is a far out band born in Philadelphia, PA. The establishment of a team culture, a methodical way of living and being, rather than a certain sound: the Grass Cannon way is laid back and low pressure, not fooled by time or space, doing it for the love of it. https://grasscannon.bandcamp.com/
*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors7:30 PM ShowLIILY Liily is an alternative rock & roll band born and bred in Los Angeles. Liily makes music that draws on all the jagged stimuli of their upbringings to make something distinctly their own. It is a sound that invokes some of their genre’s greatest forebearers (Jane’s Addiction, Foals) and the massive heavy riffs of Rage Against the Machine. The band is led by vocalist Dylan Nash, guitarist and lead visual artist Sam De La Torre, bass player Charlie Anastasis, and Maxx Morando, a drummer who may simply play faster and harder than any drummer on the planet and who is the lynchpin behind Liily’s memorably visceral live performances. Nearly one year from the release of their first single “Toro,” Liily have traveled nonstop across the US, UK, & EU, with slots at Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees and Bonnaroo, as well as festival performance in as far-reaching territories as the Czech Republic. Liily’s first EP I Can Fool Anybody In This Town dropped in March 2019. They followed the release with a live concert documentary entitled CITY/VALLEY: a Concert Film of the Brekfest Festival documenting the band’s own homegrown festival Brekfest, a now annual event created by the band and their label in LA. CLASH magazine say “Liily have a dynamic that is all their own, matching angular songwriting to sheer relentless desire.”https://www.liilytheband.com/MODEL/ACTRIZhttps://modelactriz.com/CATCHERCatcher is a Brooklyn-based post-punk band with a reputation for visceral and powerful live performances. Drawing comparisons to the birthday party, sonic youth and the fall, catcher delivers music with a driving and inundating low-end, provided by childhood friends Cameron Mcrae and Wilson Chestney, on bass and drums respectively. Guitarists Jack Young and Christian Reech interweave melodies and noise to create an environment that manages to be at once both bleak and moving, desolate but hopeful, violent but tender. Classically trained violinist Zach Mezzo brings, through his background in experimental composition, a combination of moody swells, driving staccatos, and vicious noise that enrich and accentuate the dynamics and dramatics inherent to the band’s songwriting. Vocalist Austin Eichler commands listeners with a domineering and chaotic presence. From drawling croons to powerful screams, Austin’s narrative lyrics invoke a wide spectrum of emotion while creating a world of their own. Through endless hours of practice and work the band has crafted a gripping and tight live performance and a growing international fanbase.https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/8628422/liily-modelactriz-catcher-philadelphia-silk-city
*Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required for entry**Attendees are encouraged to wear masks while not actively drinking* BAD BAD HATSBad Bad Hats are an indie rock trio from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Known for bringing a joyful, exuberant presence to their live shows, touring with The Beths, Margaret Glaspy, The Front Bottoms, Hippo Campus, and Third Eye Blind, the group took specific care to bring their fun-loving spirit to their third LP, Walkman. Kerry (guitar/vocals), Chris (bass), and Con (drums) let their collective hair down on Walkman, bringing raucous and explosive riffs alongside witty lyrics. Though you might not notice from their indie rock exterior, Bad Bad Hats draws a heavy influence from classic pop songwriting that shines through in their hooky choruses and strong melodic sensibilities. https://www.badbadhats.com/THE GULLY BOYSThe Gully Boys origin story plays out like the perfect domino effect. While sorting vintage clothes in a Minneapolis-area Ragstock in 2016, Kathy Callahan (she/her) shared her dream of becoming a vocalist with Nadirah McGill (they/them). After encouraging a friend from middle school, Natalie Klemond (she/her), to join the trio on bass, Nadi picked up a pair of drumsticks and counted off a cover of Best Coast’s “Girlfriend.” From there, they had to master their instruments on the fly, growing as creatives while blossoming with their first material. After their debut EP landed online a year later, Gully Boys released their debut LP Not So Brave in 2018, earning Best New Band honors from their hometown City Pages and sharing the stage with everyone from The Hold Steady to Third Eye Blind. The band’s Phony EP arrived in late 2019 on the edge of a screeching halt. https://www.gullyboysband.com/Attendees will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination for entry to this event.

*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*8 PM Doors8:30 PM ShowNEW ENEMIES (EP RELEASE) Former members of the Philadelphia-based band, Turning Violet Violet, came together to make New Enemies. Exploring themes of life, coming of age, and loss, they marry synths, washed-out guitars, and a driving rhythm section. Led by vocalist/songwriter Sarah Gulish, New Enemies plays earnest songs with catchy melodies and drifting guitar lines. Their 2016 was hailed as a beautiful new beginning for the band of friends. Journalist Julie Miller reviewed the songs as “majestic in a somber, soft way, billowing up in a cloud of horns as Sarah Gulish’s vocals float in layers over top. The chamber rock of TVV’s songs still ripples underneath, but as New Enemies, they’ve added a shiny gloss of atmospheric pop that ties it all together in a Death Cab-meets-CHVRCHES kind of way.” In Spring 2022, N.E. is back with a self-titled E.P. and a string of east coast shows.MILDRED Mildred is the project of Philly musicians Salina Kuo, Maggy Simon, Hannah Jordan, Natalia Bellini, and Melissa Schepers. Named after the street some members lived on together, Mildred was born in an effort to play music and feel connected. They combine guitar, bass, drums, and sometimes ukulele and mandolin with overlapping violin melodies that blend western classical, pop and folk. Mildred is looking forward to their debut EP release in spring of 2022.

*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors7:30 PM ShowJASMYNJasmyn is the new solo project created by Jasmyn Burke, former singer-songwriter and frontwoman of the critically acclaimed band Weaves. Having received two Polaris Music Prize shortlists, two JUNO nominations for Alternative Album of the Year and two SOCAN Songwriting Prize nominations, Burke has established herself as one of Canada’s most exciting and fresh voices. With this new project, she has decided to use her own name, Jasmyn, to mark the start of exploring her own unique sound as a solo artist. She signed the project to ANTI- Records (sister label to Epitaph Records) and to Royal Mountain Records for Canada.Having left hometown Toronto in search of a slower pace and some room to breathe, Jasmyn found herself slowly picking her guitar back up and writing songs in her living room using Garageband on her phone. Signed to ANTI- but unable to travel, she began sending demos to Los Angeles-based Producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten) who collaborated with her remotely on a body of work she had compiled over months of being in lockdown. In the Spring of 2021, Jasmyn went to LA to record with Congleton, exploring themes of finding patterns in life and how to perhaps change them. These themes are front and center on her first single “Find the Light.” On the general direction of the new project, and the meaning behind the debut song, Jasmyn said, “This song was loosely written during the Fall of 2020. The world was feeling pretty heavy, and I felt myself wanting to write music that created a mood of happiness and space to grow.” She reflects: “It feels like we’re living in this sort of in-between space, where life is altering. I wanted to explore finding comfort and hopefulness through uncomfortable change. I feel like I have grown and changed as a person over the last few years and wanted to write songs that created a sense of confidence and well-being.” With Weaves receiving worldwide support from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine, NPR, Pitchfork, Elton’s John’s Rocket Hour, The Guardian and Glastonbury Festival, Jasmyn is excited to share a new side of herself, perhaps her most honest and raw work to date. “Find the Light” is the first glimpse into the imaginative and singular voice of Jasmyn.https://open.spotify.com/artist/5DPKgkwwBB3lKQza7s58HYAIR WAVESNicole first found solace in her guitar, composing escapist songs with fantastical stories and catchy choruses. Air Waves serves up fantastic imagery with unforgettable melodies. You will no doubt catch yourself, hours later, singing them. Schneit writes the viral melodies that, neither sloppy nor generic, follow you through a day or two before you’re drawn back to listen to them again.https://airwaves.bandcamp.com/

*All events are 21+ valid ID required for entry*7 PM Doors7:30 PM ShowSIGNALS MIDWESTDENT is the fifth LP from Cleveland, OH rock band Signals Midwest, recorded by J. Robbins (Against Me!, Jets to Brazil, The Promise Ring). Inspired by a stolen and ultimately totaled van, the album confronts the uncertainty of a world at halt, and transmits the shaken-up-soda-can energy that fueled its writing process. With a feedback squeal and a quick four-count, DENT hits the ground running, and what follows is just over a half-hour’s worth of big songs about little moments, ominous futures, the lure of nostalgia, and finding shards of peace in an almost all-consuming wreckage. In a world up in flames, DENT is a project born from the ashes.https://signalsmidwest.bandcamp.com/DOWNHAULCommitment is messy. After five releases that swayed between plaintive indie-punk and the pull of alt-country, Downhaul has finished their decision dance. PROOF, the Richmond-via-Greensboro quartet’s sophomore LP, definitively steps towards a sound tangled in the dense mystery of the South rather than trailing the anthemic reaches of their contemporaries. Commitment is messy, uneven, and difficult—but commitment is a clear choice. With PROOF, Downhaul has chosen to be without equals at all. It’s a distinction you can prove.https://downhaul.bandcamp.com/FIVE HUNDRED BUCKShttps://fivehundredbucks.bandcamp.com/
