8pm Songwriter Deathmatch: Singer-songwriters play short, sweet sets
of original rock, pop and Americana, hosted by Dave Keener (“Muppetational”—Roctober).
An intimate, non-violent evening .https://www.facebook.com/SongwriterDeathmatch
The Do-Overs: Karen Dahlstrom and Dave Keener take a two-guitars-and-harmonies approach to 70’s pop, country & western, soundtrack surprises and their own originals. Karen recently released the acclaimed solo EP, Gem State. Dave recently released the solo CD, The Easy Way.
John S. Hall: John S. Hall is co-founder and lead vocalist of King Missile, a spokenword-with-music group that released 9 CDs, most in the previous millennium. He has written one published book of poems, one published self-help parody, and one unpublished memoir. He is currently working on a screenplay, of course.
Julie Kathryn: Julie Kathryn’s sensual Americana noir has been favorably compared to Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Norah Jones. The singer-songwriter’s mystical “Audrey Hepburn meets Joni Mitchell” fashion sensibility enhances her music’s slowburn emotionality. Her latest EP, Broken Love, is elegiacally elegant. http://juliekathryn.com
Ray Brown: Ray Brown is from South Salem, New York and has been writing songs and performing since 2010. His debut album, Canyon, was released in April, 2012. The East Village Arts Quarterly describes his songs as “funny and tragic at the same time.” The New Yorker dubbed him “a solid songwriter.” Ray’s latest album Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy was released in 2012. http://raybrown.bandcamp.com/

10pm JUSSY: Wall-to-wall guitar from dance to metal: FINALIST OF GUITAR WORLD’S SHRED THE WEB II guitarist competition; Poetry has appeared on Barnes & Noble shelves. “Different from the norm of pop, and the norm of metal …. The true brilliance of this project is how well the electronic background beats and grooves mesh with Horse’s aggressive guitar work …. they are a breed apart from today’s by-the-numbers pop music ….” – Music Emissions www.JussyMusic.com
11pm The Lost Riots: A fan explained their sound as “TheReplacements meets Black Flag”. The Lost Riots play straight up garagey punk rock reminiscent of bands that started the whole punk rock movement with a mixture of lo-fi, in your face garage rock. http://thelostriots.bandcamp.com/
