The flyer lists the month as August. The correct month is July. 6pm, Sunday, July 28, 2013.
Kath Bloom - Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors in the 70′s/80′s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP, but check the reissues from a few years ago . In the 90′s Kath’s music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise. Since then she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last few years and she and her songs were also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan, Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.
“Devastating songwriting."- NPR Song of the Day
“One of the most beautiful singers ever. Heartbreaking." -Devendra Banhart
“Bloom sounds like a woman who has spent years in the wilderness… An earthy, unpretentious presence, she can snap a heart like a twig” -Pitchfork
“One of this country’s finest living songwriters." -Andria Spring
“Kath’s voice is urgent and yet calming - a call of reckoning" -Nat Hentoff
“Her unearthly, yet increasingly rugged, voice tackles a sentiment … in a way that cuts away the cliché aspect and makes it honest. And then she’ll add to it a thought that takes it beyond that level, to feel like poetry, and then like revelation, like unbarring the secrets around us" -Dave Heaton
“If you’re after some real emotion from one of America’s undiscovered greats then look no further." -Boomkat
“The courageous majesty of Bloom’s music is there in its cutting simplicity and in its poetry … there is not one thing even slightly derivative about Bloom – a modern rarity."-Melissa Osborne
“May just be the purest, most natural heir to the literate confessional songwriting of Joni Mitchell’s Blue” -Steven Rosen
Joshua Burkett - An immensely talented recording and visual artist, Josh will play & sing along with projected films as a tune-up for his UK tour.
“Joshua better exemplifies the original free-folk impulse than any of his more celebrated contemporaries. And while he may not be doing four page fashion spreads in ‘underground’ style bibles, he remains *the* keeper of the flame"- David Keenan Wire Magazine/Volcanic Tongue
“Joshua Burkett is one of the rock’s of the New England rock underground. He got his start in the Bimbo Shrineheads at just 16 years old, playing bass and saxophone. Burkett later played sax and served as cover artist for Vermonster, Wayne Rogers and Kate Biggar’s outlet before Major Stars. Beginning in the mid 1990s, he released solo material on his own Feather One’s Nest label, including the masterpiece Gold Cosmos, which featured both Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance and Pat Gubler of P.G. Six. Spirit of Orr Records recently reissued Owls Leaves Rustling, Burkett’s 1995 solo debut, along with testimonies from Thurston Moore, Chris Corsano and Wolf Eyes’ John Olson." - Dusted Magazine
A free show with donations to the musicians very much encouraged.
