Boston isn’t cold enough in January, so Dave Simmons and I are headed to Burlington, VT to play at the legendary Radio Bean. We’ll each be playing some solo material and finish up playing some songs together.
This Poor Eliza’s first show in California! Just a short 6 hour plane ride away from Boston, the Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland, CA houses all manner of get togethers, like book discussions, poetry readings, and live music of all genres. This show was booked with the gracious help of Emily Zismen, folk songwriter and jazz vocalist, and Karlyn DeSteno, singer/songwriter poet and folk guitarist. Songwriter communities are the best, and Emily and Karlyn prove no different. Please come! $5 cover.

But the entrance is handicap accessible, and often times the owner’s dog is there.

Small City Mayor is the new indie rock project of Bredon Jones and Miriam Keller (formerly of Last to Show First to Go). Layering electric guitars & ukulele, trumpet, and harmonized vocals, they build beautiful and often haunting songs of politics, protest, and culture wars.
Jocelyn Limmer has been a songwriter for thirteen years and a *mostly* recovering perfectionist for five. Says Jocelyn,” For me, music is all about embracing uncomfortable emotions or life situations—on good days, with a sense of humor. Some of my favorite artists are Elliott Smith, Amanda Palmer and old-school Sia. (Also, if you haven’t listened to Mary Lambert, you should probably go do that right now!).”
Victoria Rios is a singer-songwriter born and raised in the wild west of San Francisco California, and a descendent of a world renowned Romani (Gypsy) Flamenco family (great-niece of Diego del Gastor, the daughter of Agustin Rios de Morón, and a relative of many other notable Flamenco artists). Treading these two worlds, her own unique style emerged. Distinctly Romani and distinctly San Franciscan, her songs are made out of sparkling, finger-picking guitar, soulful and powerful vocals, insightful lyrics, and Flamenco’s commitment to honoring stark vulnerability and pure unfiltered feeling.
Poor Eliza (formerly Bitch Trifecta) is Jane Park’s singer/songwriting project. “The first time I heard Elliott Smith’s “Waltz #2 (XO), I had to learn how to play the guitar. These past eight years of songwriting have been a roller coaster of finding my voice and practicing the guitar. I try to be a little wreckless when I perform, but I also love the quiet moments. I hope it makes the audience feel like we’re in this together.”
Please join me and some friends for a great day of folk and Americana at the Aernonaut Brewery in Somerville, MA! Thanks to Liz Anaya for letting me book the day!
