Liz Longley with special guests, Kappy Arnold and Michael Logen at Eddie’s Attic
In the short time since her graduation from Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music.
Strand of Oaks w/ Special Guests at The EARL
From the first bars of HEAL, the exhilarating melodic stomp of ‘Goshen ‘97’ puts you right into Tim Showalter’s fervent teenage mindset. We find him in his family’s basement den in Goshen, Indiana, feeling alienated but even at 15 years old, believing in the alchemy and power of music to heal your troubles. “The record is called HEAL, but it’s not a soft, gentle healing, it’s like scream therapy, a command, because I ripped out my subconscious, looked through it, and saw the worst parts. And that’s how I got better.” HEAL embodies that feeling of catharsis and rebirth, desperation and euphoria, confusion and clarity. It is deeply personal and unwittingly anthemic.
Eternal Summers w/ Antbrain at Drunken Unicorn
Eternal Summers is founded by the Roanoke, VA duo of Nicole Yun and Daniel Cundiff, but added bassist Jonathan Woods for the recording and release of 2012′s Correct Behavior. Opening with Pitchfork-deemed Best New Track, “Millions,” Correct Behavior is, as you would expect with the addition of a new member, sonically fuller than their debut album Silver and earlier EPs includingPrisoner and the material collected and released asThe Dawn of Eternal Summers.
Total Slacker / PAWS w/ Flashlights at 529
The band was incubated in New York City, after Tucker met bassist Emily Oppenheimer at a local Laundromat. The pair considered being in a band as an end goal in itself, and began their career without much direction or professionalism. The group released their lo-fi debut, Thrashin’, on Marshall Teller Records in 2011, earning a reputation as a vicious live act by playing more than 350 shows—which often feature flaming guitars, smoke machines, and smashed instruments—in under three years. In the wake of the album’s local success, the band was struck with tragedy following the death of their drummer, Terence Connor, who was struck by a hit-and-run in early October of 2012. They went into the studio within two months, laying down tracks that dealt with that confusion, transposing vague childhood angst into tangible, real-world issues.
