I'm doing okay. How are you?

33 Cherry St., Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Matt Vuchichevich
Saturday, May 12 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Guitar and voice. Inclusive singalongs about dangerous traffic, applied mathematics, the lack of gravity in platform videogames, sitting on the Tobin bridge, pickles from vending machines, and keeping everything together, if barely. The energy of rock music but just a bit weird. (The good kind of weird.)

The record is free: https://aoav.bandcamp.com/album/we-crossing-out-here-we-ready-to-die-out...

Hang out with us!

Dirty Water Brass Band

67 Broadway, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Mary Curtin
Saturday, May 12 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Dirty Water Brass Band, a Boston-based undefinable raucous street band, a staunch contributor to the many grooves that make this town tick. We bring our movable block party to you, doesn’t matter where. Our style is eclectic, a mix of second line, soul, R&B, Motown, rock, jazz and more. And we do NOT "have to be in by twelve o'clock!"

This year, Dirty Water is totally psyched to be playing for you on and by the front stoop of the Revolutionary Medical MJ Clinic in East Somerville. Kudos to the city for welcoming such an establishment to this great neighborhood.

Feel free to "love that Dirty Water" at: https://www.facebook.com/dirtywaterbrassband.

Miele + special guest Scott of Somerset

139 Elm St, Apt 2, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Melissa Nilles
Saturday, May 12 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Miele is a Boston-based alternative rock band pulling from a diverse drawing board of art rock, psychedelia, soul, grunge, metal, and funk influences. Formed in 2014, Miele straddles the line between alt rock and art rock, with soulful female vocals oft compared to Grace Slick or Robert Plant, and startling switches between mystical melodies and grungy/funky/heavy rock. Miele focuses on examination of the intricacies of the human condition by responding through multi-layered rock compositions. They are releasing their debut full length album, Transience, on June 22 at The Burren. They have been featured on TV Programs Don't Forget To Rock, Duck Village Stage Sessions, and WEMF Radio.

Started by Brian Sousa and Amy Wynne in 2015, the duo has become a powerful live act, adding Justin Bartlett on vocals /electric guitar, and Heidi Crampton on drums. The band’s lyrically driven songs feature three-part harmonies and veer from suitcase-stomping acoustic, to snare-pounding electric, to minimalist folk.
