On Sunday, Feb. 25th at 7:30pm, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza (Jane Park) performs with Vietnamese American poet Duy Doan, and transgender singer-songwriter and poet Skylar Kergil at the Burren in Somerville. All three artists are united by a desire raise the visibility of marginalized voices, and use their art to connect to audiences who wish to experience a wide range of perspectives. Tickets are $12 advance/$16 at the door and can be purchased here: https://tickets.burren.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=268
Born in Texas, Duy is the author of the forthcoming collection We Play a Game, winner of the 2017 Yale Series of Younger Poets Prize. A Kundiman fellow, he received an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he serves as director of the Favorite Poem Project. Duy loves cats, soccer, and dance.
Skylar shares his stories through simple progressions and complicated lyrics. According to Billboard, he is one of eleven transgender and non-binary musicians to keep an eye on, writing that his music has a folk sound that sends a statement. He is a Boston native, often found nearby cats or listening to the lives of queer youth.
Boston-based, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza is an alum of the All Together Now performance series, producer of Ladies Coverband Night, and focuses her local shows on raising the visibility of women and minority performers. She is currently working on her second album and her first set of tours, which are planned for February, April, and June of 2018. For more information, please email email@example.com.
I’m so excited to be a part of All Together Now #5 at the Lily Pad! This is a concert series close to my heart, because I’m the marketing assistant for it! I’ve been helping Anna Rae accomplish this vision she has for a performance series that is inclusive, multidisciplinary, and respectful to the artists. Please follow this show on facebook or check out the ATN website for tickets, artist bios, and more info!

I’ve uploaded some highlights from our Club Passim show on bandcamp. If you missed the show, or just ever wanted a recording of Sirens of NY, please take a DL from bandcamp. And as usual, it’s FREE FREE FREE! Many thanks to Eric “Landform” Landers for recording the entire set, and Reid Simpson from Here and There Photography for the photos!
Songs featured include: Winter Hill (w/ a guitar solo!), Good Doctor, Ice Cream Song (new song!), Sirens of NY, and Battleship (new song!). Hope you enjoy.
Start the year off right with a nice little show put on by WEMF! Wednesdays at PA’s are one of the rare chances we as songwriters have to play solo, be experimental, and to meet other local songwriters.
Join us for the laid back, acoustic sing-alongs of Henry Glitter; original folk-pop of Amanda Picciche (In Ivy); alt-country inspired, confessional music of Poor Eliza; songs of biting commentary and satire by Will Roos; and original blues rock by touring songwriter Zeke Duckworthy, who is promoting his full-length album “Bad Road Trip.”
WEMF is one of the few artistic organizations that will book a night like this, and I’m so grateful. Many thanks to Heather Timmons for booking me! Now….what kind of weirdness will we have ready for you?
8:30-9:05 Henry Gitter

Dear Friends, I’m so happy to be sharing the stage with two New York acts: Phoebe Heretz and Dylan DeBiase. They are currently on tour, and killing it out there in the world. So come by the Out of the Blue Too Gallery in Cambridge between 7:30-10pm. There is no beer or liquor at the Out of the Blue. But the entrance is handicap accessible, and often times the owner’s dog is there.

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.
