Cassandra Jenkins (Album Release Show!)
Cassandra Jenkins has a voice that is at once tragic and hopeful. Bedded in haunting arrangements of tremolo guitar and washy organ, she draws you into a world lying somewhere between Mazzy Star and Twin Peaks. It’s an arrestingly intimate place, where if you listen closely enough, you’ll find something as timeless as it is bittersweet. She's joined by Malcolm Perkins on electric guitar, Michael Rosen on electric organ, and Noah Hecht on drums.
Cardboard is an energetic garage rock trio based in Brooklyn. They play fast and fiery rock and roll, cooling it down with a breezy and melodic San Francisco spirit (hometown of lead singer Jonathan Rosen). Somewhere between The Replacements and Dead Boys, Cardboard will make you nostalgic for those punk shows in your old gymnasium. Austin Vaughn plays the drums and Turner Curran is on the bass.
A composer's son from Berlin, lead singer and principal songwriter Clemens Knieper moved to the Berkshires as a youngster to live with family friend and Orange Twin artist Sibylle Baier, who both taught him to write songs and to drive. Now he makes sepia toned folk and pop under The Top moniker, where he’s joined by Dan Stern (drums), Aaron Green (keys) and James Preston (bass). If comparisons are your thing, George Harrison, Kinks, Strokes, etc…
BLKKATHY wants to make your booty bounce and ruin your makeup.
BLKKATHY is a Brooklyn-based duo, sometimes trio, of ladies who like to sing sad songs over very heavy bass beats. These are dance songs, so its okay to cry.
