Press Release:

HELLO WORLD! LET’S DO SOMETHING FUN ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 at 9PM, A LATE-NIGHT SERIES OF KICK-ASS ARTISTS, CURATED BY DIANA OH
$15/ticket, money goes to the artists to keep making their unexpected and surprising performances
 
A few words about the featured talented by Diana:  Mister Clown aka Mike Smith Rivera: He’s a COC! A clown of color…Oh my. A friendship forged through EST and curating their monthly late-night mix-tape aka Last Call–he’s the emcee, actor, sketch comedian, ARTISTE with the mostest–clever, unexpected, FUN, surprising, heart of gold. All the things that we want in a human being. I often see him riding around town wearing his clown nose. Because he studied at Le Coq–and he’s legit like that. There’s never knowing what the hell he’s going to do on stage and that’s why he’s my favorite.  BABY NO MORE TIMES is a feminist pop concert, complete with dance moves, four part harmonies, everything we love about Britney but we sing about like breaking the fourth wall and shit. It’s written by Mary Birnbaum, Melissa Lusk, and Caroline McGraw and features Rachel Flynn, Melissa Lusk, Lauren Jackson Oddo, and Diana Oh.  JANE PARK –Oh NYC, YOU AREN’T EVEN READY FOR JANE PARK. I first met Jane and all her glory when we played All Together Now in Boston.  Comparing her to Jeff Buckley is reductive. Buuuuuuuut just to let you know how deeply and profoundly she touches, thrills, and moves me, Jane Park and Jeff Buckley can hold hands walking through a park, and no one would question it.   BOB JAFFE— a human rights advocate, an artist, actor, writer and philanthropist and HE’S THE BEST GD HARMONICA PLAYER I HAVE EVER GD SEEN. Watching him play harmonica is like watching angels sing.   And then there’s DIANA OH – Well I am who I am and you are who you are.   And maybe I’ll sing. And maybe I won’t. And maybe I’ll do whatever the hell I want because I’m turning 30 on September 29. And you are all responsible for that. And well let’s convene, and get the fuck outta the city for awhile and into the dark, loving, radical hotbed of dreams also known as Rattlestick–let’s make some fucking dreams happen, comrades.

Press Release (Long Form):

On Thursday, November 3 at 6:00-8:30 PM, Thunder Road (375 Somerville Ave in Somerville) hosts local songwriters Poor Eliza, Victoria Rios, Jocelyn Limmer, and Small City Mayor. Thunder Road is the new rock venue in Union Square and is handicap accessible with a single occupancy bathroom on the entry level. The doors and kitchen open at 5pm and tickets are $10. Purchase tickets here: http://ow.ly/6NfB304AvzV

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.”

Jane Park

On June 25, I’ll be a part of a concert series called All Together Now!

I’ll be headlining this show with a full band, and I’m working on an EP–I hope it will be ready by then! In the spirit of collaboration and community, there will be some interactive parts to my show. I’m so excited to share all this with you, and some new music I’ve been working on for the past few months!

“All Together Now,” is a multimedia series curated by Anna Rae that combines artists from Boston and NYC, and makes space for women, POC, and LGBTQ, in partnership with our cis white male allies. The multimedia aspect creates a sensory-rich experience for the audience, and combining artists from NYC and Boston enriches and celebrates our local arts dialogue.
