    Black Francis – vocals, guitar
    Joey Santiago – guitar
    David Lovering – drums
    Paz Lenchantin – bass, vocals

    Joey Santiago is in love.
    “I am!” he laughs. “The longest I separated from this girlfriend is probably a week. Then I listened to her again. Haha! I love it!”

    The object of Joey’s desire is his band’s new album, Head Carrier. The Pixies’ guitarist may have finished recording it months ago, but he remains utterly smitten. He takes it to bed and discovers little details he hadn’t noticed before. “I was shocked at some songs, they shine at lot better than I thought they would. You could listen to this forever and enjoy it.”

    Not surprisingly, he wants to show his new baby to the world.

    “I played it to some friends and both of them had goose-bumps – they just loved it! It’s tough and lush. Warm and dark and murky…”

    Santiago’s giddiness might come as a surprise. This isn’t his first time, after all. Head Carrier is the seventh Pixies album, in a lifespan stretching back 30 years to their formation in Boston, Massachusetts. But there is, the guitarist notes, a new element to the Pixies’ DNA this time.

    “It’s Paz. She’s awesome. Now, everything is just so light, we’ve got lightness. I think I lost 12 pounds it’s so light now.”

    Paz is Paz Lenchantin, the bass player who joined the Pixies at the start of 2014, before the release of Head Carrier’s predecessor, Indie Cindy, but after its completion. If there was any lingering uncertainty regarding her official status, even during the two years of touring that followed, that’s changed now. Her position was sealed, emotionally, when she sang one of the new album’s stellar moments, “All I Think About Now,” a song she co-wrote with Pixies’ lead singer-songwriter Charles Thompson aka Black Francis and which is a tribute to Kim Deal, the original Pixie whose role Paz now occupies.

    “It just came at the last minute, a week before the recording process ended,” says Lenchantin. “I came up with some chords which I showed Charles, and he really liked it and he put some lyrics to it.”

    “Paz said she wanted me to write a letter – a thank-you letter,” says Black Francis. “So I did. It was kinda poignant for us. It was important that song was a collaboration. Something from the Pixies’ DNA but also something from her as the new member, together.”

    The genesis of Head Carrier began even as Indie Cindy was being made – a direct consequence of Kim Deal’s decision to quit the band in June 2013 during a recording session at Rockfield Studios in Wales. “So we knew we had to make another one, even before we finished Indie Cindy,” says Black Francis. “That one by definition had turned into this transitional moment. We tried to make that transitional moment as good as we could, but no matter how great we potentially could make it, we knew it would still beg the question: what’s your new paradigm? It still remained transitional. Instead of becoming defining, it became transitional.”

    Although almost 23 years separated Indie Cindy from its predecessor, 1991’s Trompe Le Monde, the Pixies’ 2014 comeback album that felt like a solid and contiguous addition to the canon. Both records were produced by genial Liverpudlian taskmaster Gil Norton, who had also guided the band on Doolittle (1989) and then Bossanova (1990). But when Black Francis and Joey Santiago sat down to discuss what might come next, they instinctively knew a change was required.

    “Joey and I decided that we had to be a little more self-defined, by the band, as opposed to the band’s history,” says Francis. “Pro-active as opposed to remaining where we had been. Not that we wouldn’t work with Gil Norton again, but we felt like we had to work with someone else. Seemed like the right thing to do.”

    “We said the next one has to be a punch in the face,” adds Santiago. “Gil could have easily done it, but we had to get out of our comfort zone. We had to find a tough audience per se, and that meant a different producer.”

    At their manager’s suggestion, in September 2015 the Pixies met Tom Dalgety in Toronto, where the band was recording demos. The English producer of Royal Blood’s breakthrough debut, Dalgety’s other credits include such noted volume dealers as Killing Joke and Opeth. But according to Black Francis, the specifics of his track record mattered less than whether he was agreeable company for a meal.

    “We hired Tom over dinner. We liked him. We liked his personality. And we knew that he had produced records before. So it’s not like – ‘Does this guy know what he’s doing?’ ‘I dunno, whatever…’ He’s produced some records! Yeah, he knows what he’s doing! Everyone understands what the task is at hand. But – do you like the person? Can you sit down and have dinner with them? Ah, I like this person. I think we can make a record.”

    Near the end of 2015, the band undertook three weeks’ pre-production at Real World Studios, near Dalgety’s hometown of Bath. The producer pulled some songs apart and outright rejected some others, including one the band had been hitherto convinced was a keeper. “Your ego has to go out the door if someone says, ‘I don’t like this’,” says Santiago, “because that’s their job. He’s won Producer Of The Year, for crying out loud – who are we to say?! But when I came up with something good Tom would tap me on the back and give the thumbs-up. And I’d feel awesome.”

    “Tom took the lead on what songs worked better with each other,” adds Lenchantin. “And then we just played them ’til they sounded right. Played them every day, for hours!”

    Thanks to their staunch work ethic and Dalgety’s precision eye for arrangements, the band arrived at London’s RAK Studios in February in a heightened state of readiness. According to drummer David Lovering, they had never been so well drilled prior to making an album.

    “That was just a joy for me, ’cos I would consider myself a slow learner,” he chuckles. “Previous albums like Trompe Le Monde and Bossanova, the later ones, those came together very quickly and it almost wasn’t until two months into a tour where I would go, Aha, this is how the songs should go! So I always have trepidation going into the studio. I listened to Indie Cindy not long ago, and I was like – Owwww! It hurt me a little, some things I heard. But when I listen to this album, I’m very, very happy.”

    Recorded in just three weeks, Head Carrier has the sonic hallmarks of a classic Pixies album – tungsten guitar riffage, sun-soaked harmonies, rhythmic pummel and lyrical intrigue – while never pandering to nostalgia. Aligned to its palpably fresh momentum, many of its songs have a poignant undertow, acknowledging its creators’ real time/real life journey. At least three, according to Black Francis, “fall into the sour grapes love song category”, though two of these – “Classic Masher” and “Bel Esprit” – feel quite exultant. The title track and “Plaster Of Paris,” meanwhile, share a somewhat thematic kinship, though the linkage is worthy of a cryptic crossword setter, turning upon the grisly fate of Saint Denis, the first bishop of Paris.

    “Head Carrier is the story of Saint Denis, as told from the perspective of one of his collaborators, Luther,” says Francis. “Saint Denis is also the most famous cephalophore. Then, I was reading a lot about how plaster of Paris was first commercially manufactured from the same place that Saint Denis met his demise, which was Montmartre. That was a nice way to tie in a lot of that imagery.”

    Elsewhere, the songs offer a typically varied buffet of Pixies esoterica: rural roadside prostitution in France and Belgium (“Um Chagga Lagga”), the Mesopotamian deity Baal (“Baal’s Back”) and the legendary American actor Jack Palance, who makes a cameo appearance in the rambunctious “Talent,” one of two songs whose primary musical influence Black Francis attributes to The Stranglers.

    “Trying to channel their energy – and not necessarily pulling it off, but it’s always nice to shoot for lofty things. I wanted to use Jack Palace primarily because h

    Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist. He began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s, as the city suffered postindustrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971 released on Sussex records. These recordings went unnoticed in the U.S. and Rodriguez eventually turned his efforts elsewhere, earning a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Wayne State University, running for political office and working construction and factory jobs to support his family.
    In the mid-1970s, his music gained airplay in Australia and New Zealand. He has since toured there several times, to play festivals, arenas & theaters. He released “Rodriguez Rocks – Live In Australia “ in 2016 on Light in the Attic Records and has just completed a multi-city tour of Australia in November/December of 2016.
    In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching for Sugar Man, directed by Malik Bendjelloul , which has given Rodriguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. with his music and story now reaching audiences worldwide. The film has been aired multiple times on PBS and public TV worldwide and is available on DVD and streaming TV.
    Rodriguez was unaware that he had reached legendary folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa, where mistaken rumors circulated that he had perished. As it turns out, South African anti-Apartheid activists and musicians alike were inspired by his counterculture lyrics. At the beginning of 2016 he went on a multi-city tour of South Africa, often playing multiple nights in arenas.
    Rodriguez now tours extensively in South Africa, Australia, Europe, Canada and the U.S., where he takes thoughtful appreciation in greeting longtime fans, and a new generation of listeners who find common ground in his music. His albums, Cold Fact and Coming from Reality have been re-released on Light in the Attic Records and the Searching for Sugar Man soundtrack is available on Sony Legacy. International media attention, awareness and accolades have since been bestowed upon both the documentary - Searching for Sugar Man and Rodriguez’s music.
    He has perhaps one of the most unique true music business stories of fleeting fame finally realized. Rodriguez is enjoying the collective heartfelt dream of a musician, beating the odds and finding a place in music history. With a music career that has withstood the test of time; the story of Rodriguez is one of sweet success.

    Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock’s most explosive live acts, Grammy Award winning band Halestorm recently released their third studio album INTO THE WILD LIFE.
    Recorded last year in Nashville with GRAMMY®-nominated producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church) at the helm, “INTO THE WILD LIFE” is highlighted by the historic new single, “Apocalyptic.” The track recently ascended to the top at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide in an astounding 9 weeks – the first time a female-fronted band has scored #1 hits at the format three times as well as the first to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. Furthermore, “Apocalyptic” has hit #1 at Mainstream Rock radio, marking Halestorm as the fourth-ever female-led act to top the format more than once. As if that weren’t enough, the song’s electrifying companion video has drawn over 2 million individual views thus far at Halestorm’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PXkCAiV0Ww.

    A new companion video for “Amen,” the next single from “INTO THE WILD LIFE,” recently debuted at RollingStone.com (www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-halestorm-rebel-against-day-jobs-inraucous-amen-video-20150302). Directed by DJay Brawner (Ed Sheeran, Panic! At The Disco), the provocative clip has surpassed 1.5 million views at www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGchlqCjj8A.

    In addition to its extraordinary popular success, “INTO THE WILD LIFE” has also begun receiving unprecedented critical acclaim. “(The album) is a different beast altogether,” declared veteran rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn at Yahoo! Music, “one that forsakes everything that has worked for Halestorm thus far (slick production, traditional songwriting arrangements, a radio-ready mix of rockers and ballads) and takes a leap into the unknown… The risk of following its instincts has paid off.”

    PARTIAL PROCEEDS OF THIS SHOW WILL BE DONATED TO ANGELA’S HOUSE

    The Allmost Brothers Band is a progressive tribute act honoring the tradition of the legendary Allman Brothers Band. Working within the framework of the incredible and vast song book of the ABB, The Allmost Brothers inject something new, fresh and exciting into the material. In a matter of words: high level musicianship, authentic improvisational interplay, dedication to the high octane performance, and power that established the original ABB back in 1969.
    Comprised of New York’s finest musicians, nothing less would do justice to the enduring high level of play that the ABB have sustained over their 45 year career. With the experience of professional touring players the road truly does go on forever, and has led each member of The Allmost Brothers Band together to bring the ultimate Allman Brothers experience.
    The Allmost Brothers Band are: Sean McGrath, and Dave Filloramo on lead guitars, Joe Wasserman on Vocals & Keys, Dave Losee and Bruce Dickson on Drums, Tom Hooker on the Bass, and Bob Oven on Vocals/Percussion/Harmonica.
    This band of brothers truly thrives on chemistry and improvisation bringing a unique fire every night to the song book of the ABB.

    FreeBird is a band that exclusively plays the great songs of one of the best bands ever, Lynyrd Skynyrd. FreeBird is a "sound-alike" band, faithfully playing and sounding just like the real deal. Skynyrd wrote and played some the most rockin, high-energy, fun, kick-ass music ever done. FreeBird is out to play those great songs as close to the originals as possible because Skynyrd really knew how to rock, so why mess with a great thing.
    Now, there are a lot of Southern Rock bands out there and some of them sound great, and they may play a few Skynyrd tunes in their show, and you should go out and see them—we support them. But if you want to have a totally Skynyrd experience, then you gotta see FreeBird because the band ONLY does Skynyrd, the way they sounded and played. FreeBird is a true tribute: You want to hear Skynyrd the way they played live, and that’s what you get.
    You’ll hear the Skynyrd standards like Sweet Home Alabama, Gimme Three Steps, and of course Freebird. And you’ll hear excellent songs that you may not have heard for awhile like Gimme Back My Bullets, Whiskey Rock-a-Roller, Needle and the Spoon, and T for Texas. And you’ll hear some Skynyrd songs you may not have heard for a long, long time like What’s your Name, You Got That Right, and Double Trouble.
    With free bird, you’ll swear to God the original Skynyrd was reborn and playin up there on the stage.

    “Sitting Around, Singing Some Songs – Tourgether 2017”

    Earlier this year, Anders Osborne and Jackie Greene, were booked to do a few solo acoustic shows together. One thought, and the other agreed, that the shows would be a helluva lot more fun if they joined together and did them “in the round.” For two friends that are gifted as both singer-songwriters and guitarists—impromptu “jamming” is second nature. But for these shows, they’ve ditched their bands for some stripped down acoustic performances, each taking a turn with one of their songs, while the other provides accompaniment.

    It was a great experience for each of them and audience alike and Jackie and Anders are excited to bring this sit-down evening of old fashioned tune trading to more cities this fall!
