This evening I’ll get the chance to chat with Rob Potylo on WEMF Radio! WEMF is an internet radio station based out of Boston. Mr. Rob Potylo is known for his eclectic artistic projects, probably most famously Quiet Desperation, a show that highlights and satires the boston art scene. His radio show goes from 5-8pm, and I’m slotted to be on around 7pm. Many thanks to DAve Crespo for booking shows, getting artists on radio, sharing all his biznizz know how, and for properly rocking our brains out. Listen here: http://wemfradio.com/Live/
Here’s a little show preview! Robin and I took this video while we were practicing for the show Thursday (at McGann’s). Click on the picture to watch (on youtube). Kitty Cameo by my brave zooey.
We’ll be opening for Hammer and Snake this Thursday at McGann’s as a part of their July Residency. The theme this week is Rock ‘n’ Roots, so we’ve tailored a set of Americana and Rock: a little dolly, a little alt-country, and our hardest originals. Vive Americana! Also playing are folk blue-sers The Mirror Neurons.
Come and instagram us! So we know it’s for real.
Thursday, 7/24 at McGann’s
197 Portland St in Boston
(1 or 2 blocks from North Station)
The Hammer and Snake July residency is brought to you by Dave Crespo.
This is at the Lizard Lounge Open Mic Challenge in Cambridge, MA. 5/36/2014. Thanks to Kevin O’Neil and Shawn Dierdre for recording and uploading this! “Coat of Many Colors” is by Dolly Parton. “Sirens of NY” is by Jane Park (me).
Ladies Coverband Night is a tribute to great singers and songwriters. It gives us a chance to gush and pour ourselves into our latest obsession! Every year we gather amazing local bands, and we challenge them to cover someone more famous than themselves.
This year, we’re so excited to announce that Ladies Coverband Night will be “Gentlemen’s Choice” this year! The night will begin with Singers-in-the-Round: Mark Lipman as Patty Griffin, Steve Subrizi as Jenny Lewis, and Nick Zaino as Aimee Mann. That’s right, men! Bitch Trifecta will follow with a Cowboy Junkies set (lots of Trinity Sessions…), and Tom Bianchi closes out the night!
We’re doubly excited that we’ll be playing in conjunction with Tom Bianchi’s Singer-Songwriter Night at the Burren! Every Sunday Night, Tom rallies the Somerville community to the back room and showcases singer-songwriters, a lot of them are from out of town. He helps draw in a regular crowd by closing out the night himself and making sure everyone is feeling good before they go home!
Historically, the Burren has also been a venue that has been extremely supportive of local music and folk music. Everyone knows how Hugh McGowan has hosted the open mic at the Burren for 16 years now! That is a ruckus if I’ve ever seen one! So we’re very excited about this show for many reasons!
Ladies Coverband Night is taking on different forms and venues, and we’re so proud to bring you this night.
This Friday, Me and Fran will rock you side to side in our big, strong arms. Which is a metaphor for melt your face. Which is a metaphor for comfort. Which is a metaphor for discomfort.
Bitch Trifecta duo-style:
Jane Park on drums
Francisco Morales on zylophone (that’s how he likes to spell it, i dunno…)
The Bitch Trifecta will start off the new year with a show in NH! Manchester! So load up the hatchback with your favorite things and zip zip away! Playing with me will be Eric Landers from the land before single space, and Francisco Morales of Davis Square. Zooey no longer plays with us, but he’s sitting on my arms as I type this (what a helpful kitty!).
I’d love it if anyone who knows anyone in NH asked their friends to come see us play. If they leave me their address, they’ll receive a handwritten letter and whatever else is legally transportable through USPS.
