KRISTIN HERSH - Electric Trio Show

Influential songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Kristin Hersh, leader of the indie rock band, Throwing Muses and the noise rock power trio, 50 Foot Wave, is on the road with her highly acclaimed Fire Records release, “Possible Dust Clouds.” The touring trio is a hard hitting super group: Fred Abong, bass player from Throwing Muses (who opens solo, promoting his new ep, “Pulsing”) and Rob Ahlers, drummer of 50 Foot Wave. These electric trio shows are loud, tight and intense, featuring material from across Kristin’s thirty year career.

SCR

Based out of New York, SCR (Sir Cadian Rhythm) is an alt-rock band known for their captivating live performance and infectious melodies. 

The bands unique sonic blend, which teeters on the edge of pop and alternative rock, is the result of each member coming from different musical upbringings ranging from musical theater to horn-laden funk to psychedelic rock music. 

Since their formation in 2015, the band has gone on to perform all over the east coast opening for national acts including Gavin DeGraw, Andy Grammer, Blues Traveler, The Robert Randolph Band, and The Record Company. Their highly touted single, “Not Quite Done Yet”, went viral on social media platforms and has accumulated close to a half a million streams on Spotify since its release. The hit song was featured in the blockbuster video game ‘Nascar Heat 2” this past fall. The bands song “Run Around Town” was also featured in the film “Back in the Day” starring Alec Baldwin.

Jimmy Webb
Oct 30 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

A true living legend of songwriting, Jimmy Webb’s been crafting amazing songs, many of which have become cherished standards, for some forty years. And he’s still doing it.  Now on tour with his newest CD, “Still Within the Sound of My Voice” Jimmy Webb is engaging his audiences like never before. Though some might still not know his name, they know the songs: “Wichita Lineman,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Galveston,” “The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress,” “All I Know,” “The Highwayman,” “Up, Up and Away,” “MacArthur Park,” and many more. And those are just the famous ones. Webb is one of those rare songwriters who manages to bring a genuine measure of magic to everything he touches.

He’s a prodigious performer, and a night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to hear George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all these amazing songs. Webb is still at it, thankfully, and if you get a chance to see him live, grab it. People ask why nobody writes songs like they used to. Fortunately for us all, Jimmy Webb still does.” -American Songwriter Magazine

“Mr. Webb is a superb natural melodist whose best songs often combine the tuneful directness of country music with the unabashedly romantic harmonic palette of classic Hollywood film scores.” – The New York Times
