Shows this week

This week is super busy with a whole bunch of gigs:

Tonight, Tuesday, September 20th, I’m playing with Ethan Robbins & Cold Chocolate at The Loft at Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square. Music starts at 9:30 pm with Justin Trawick and we’re on at 10 pm.

Wednesday, September 21st Bottom of the Well is coming out of hibernation to play at All Asia on Mass Ave in Cambridge. It’s an early show, starting at 6 pm with Tallahassee, then Bent by Elephants (from Montreal), and we’ll be rounding out the night, probably going on around 8 pm.

Thursday, September 22nd I’ll be back in Union Square with the Somerville Symphony Orkestar at Precinct. Apparently I was misinformed when I said we were playing with Klezwoods in my last post–it turns out the show is a Kurt Vonnegut tribute featuring music, poetry, puppets, dancing, circus tricks… the theatrics start at 7:30 pm, it should be a really fun night.

The two gigs this week I’m most excited for are happening later in the week:

Friday, September 23rd I’m heading down to New Jersey to play at the Folk Project’s Minstrel Coffeehouse. I’ll be performing solo, opening for my friend Ilusha Tsinadze and his band, who play a mix of jazz, folk, and traditional Georgian tunes.

Then, on Saturday, September 24th I’m driving back to Boston bright and early so I can make it to the Boston HarborArts Festival. The festival is celebrating the one year anniversary of a collection of public outdoor sculptures in East Boston that promote conservation of waterways and aquatic ecosystems. In addition to the display of these pieces, many local artists will be presenting work along with live musical performances from 12 til 6 pm. Bottom of the Well will be making its second appearance of the week at 3 pm.

Somerville Symphony Orkestar

The next two Thursdays (the 15th and the 22nd) I’m going to be playing shows with the Somerville Symphony Orkestar, a Balkan- and klezmer-influenced rock band. Both shows will be in Union Square in Somerville.

On Thursday, September 15th we’ll be at PA’s Lounge along with the Underscore Orkestra (another Balkan/klezmer/circus-y band). Show starts at 8:30pm.

Then on Thursday, September 22nd we’ll be at Precinct along with Boston klezmer band Klezwoods. Show starts at 8pm.

Both shows should be really fun–lots of Eastern European music, circus performers, belly dancers, and I’ve heard rumors of a dancing elephant…
