The Mommyheads. An Indie Rock Treasure.
June 9, 2022 - The Mommyheads have been a vital part of the indie rock scene over the past three decades. The New York quartet has released 13 albums of complex, addictively melodic pop tunes, including 1997’s self-titled album for Geffen Records (produced by the legendary Don Was). The band’s latest album, Age Of Isolation, reflects the cultural mood over the past couple years while finding some solace in the company of friends and the joys of live music. We can all relate to that.
Kentavius Jones. A Soulful Gem.
August 18, 2022 - A regional favorite, Kentavius grew up listening to Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix on his father’s turntable. A gifted vocalist and guitarist, Kentavius nods to those influences while fashioning a unique brand of soulful rock.
His vibrant live shows feature an ample selection of original music alongside a few spirited cover tunes. Do not miss this opportunity to support a talented local artist.
See It Loud: The Globe Poster Story. Cambridge Film Premiere.
September 29, 2022 - For decades, Globe Poster created iconic concert posters for a who’s who of African-American music: from Muddy Waters and James Brown to Aretha Franklin and Tupac Shakur. The Baltimore-based letterpress company went out of business in 2010 but has thrived since partnering with a local art school. See It Loud documents Globe’s impressive legacy and inspiring resurrection and features interviews with fans such as filmmaker John Waters, acclaimed bluesman Bobby Rush, soul legend Solomon Burke, Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne, and others. This feature-length film illustrates how something old can become new again, with an infusion of new ideas and fresh energy.
John Nemeth April 10
With his James Brown sense of soul and harmonica in hand, Memphis-based John Nemeth has grooved
his way to the top of the blues charts. The recipient of multiple Blues Music Awards (including “Best
Male Artist” in 2014), Nemeth draws heavily from blues and r&b influences while crushing stylistic
barriers by embracing elements of hip hop and rock and roll. The Blue Dreamers, his road band, add
infectious southern swamp grooves to the mix.
John Nemeth at the Art Bar 2.0. 420B Race Street. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Show starts at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are limited.
