Alicia Lemke sighting number 2! Last Thursday I had a wonderful time in Kendall Square watching Alicia Lemke and her full band perform.
Last week, Berklee students and alumni were well represented at Boston’s Together Festival. The Together Festival ran from April 18th through the 24th and featured music, art and technology. The festival included great events including art installations, discussion panels, seminars movie screenings and concerts. On Tuesday, April 19th, Berklee students and alumni gathered at the Phoenix Landing in Cambridge to perform original electronic music. Sponsored by ElecSonic, an organization produced by current Berklee students Austin Stone and Tyler Randall, the event had a great turnout. The night featured music by Phonoride, Brite Lite Brite, Balian and Kerry Leva ‘05.
Several months ago, “Out of the Blue” art gallery (http://www.outoftheblueartgallery.com/) in Cambridge held an all-night concert showcasing local bands, stand-up comics, and singer-songwriters. Taking place in such a small venue, the place was packed all night, and there was much fun to be had involving bad ska music, crude humor, and organic chocolate chip cookies.
While trying to explain the whole debacle would do no justice in print, I will shine the spotlight on one of the performers who had a style a bit different than the rest. Playing on a beat-up Rhodes piano stacked with various drum machines and effects pads, Jhai Sinnatamby (formerly of local act Hunter S. Floortom) took to the floor with a set of slow R&B and retro-folk songs that seemed to resonate with everyone in the audience. Dig the following video.
Now enjoy the warm weather!
