THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND (with DUKE, BILLY AND RICHARD) and very special guest CURTIS McMURTRY
Wednesday 9/24 - WELCOME BACK! THE RETURN OF THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND with special guest CURTIS McMURTRY $5 advance and $8 at the door 8:30 doors / 9:00 show www.dennisbrennan.com www.curtismcmurtry.com Dennis Brennan and his stellar band of revolving musicians return to rock a fall and winter season of Wednesday nights. As the band did last season, special guests open the second set each week with a short set. Look for some to cover Dennis Brennan songs. Tonight features Austin based singer songwriter Curtis McMurtry. Curtis played this middle set a few months back and wowed everyone with his songs. Curtis is the son of legendary singer songwriter writer James McMurtry. Curtis hits the stage at 10:15. Dennis and the band hit at 9:00PM sharp! DENNIS BRENNAN.... To the uninitiated, Brennan could be considered Boston's own Leonard Cohen or Elvis Costello. His songwriting is respected by critics and musicians alike. Not only adept with the pen, Dennis Brennan is a highly accomplished performer and is known for his ability to span musical genres, styles, and era's with ease. His emotive and passionate voice is comfortable tackling classic country and R& B as well classic jazz, rock and blues. But it's really Brennan's originals that have set him apart. The Chicago Sun Times described him as "A rootsy, hard-edged rocker with the barroom soul of the pre-Woodstock Graham Parker and the unsparing insight of a working class poet." It's a fitting description if ever there was one. To the initiated faithful who attend every show, Dennis and his band (which includes guitarists Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, Russell Chudnofsky, Ian Kennedy, and Tony Savarino on any given night along with the rhythm section of Billy Beard and Richard Gates plus keyboardist Jim Gambino) have etched so many indelible magical moments on the local collective conscious that they return each week to see what will happen next. TONIGHTS GUEST: CURTIS McMURTRY From Austin, Texas. You know his father and his grandfather. Now meet Curtis McMurtry on his East Coast tour for his debut album Respectable Enemy. "Sharp songwriter" (CMT) mirrors legendary father with literate story songs that examine "the nastiest parts of people" AUSTIN, Texas Curtis McMurtry's forthcoming Respectable Enemy plots ("Foxhole") and prowls ("Eleanor's House") with singular focus. "I wanted to make an album about people treating the ones they loved as opponents and the really mean and competitive aspects of love," the Austin native says. "It's about conflict and spite and those times when someone who should be proud of their partner's or friend's accomplishments is jealous instead. I play out the nastiest parts of people." Results spotlight a singular young songwriter rapidly rising. McMurtry's vibrant vignettes effortlessly pull ("Isabel") and punch ("Down to the Wire") with raw emotion and keen insight. Folks notice. "Wise beyond his years," CMT recently called McMurtry. Celebrated songwriter Joe Pug agrees: "Like few songwriters his age, Curtis truly understands what a big tent American music actually is. While most modern Americana practitioners search for another rough edge to sand down, his debut is refreshingly unsymmetrical and beautiful." Evidence: "Chaplinesque." McMurtry seamlessly frames a wounded lover's disdain with unflinching honesty. "What a respectable enemy you turned out to be," he growls, "and here I thought you were just a bad friend." "I wrote 'Chaplinesque' when I was 17," McMurtry explains. "I had this friend that I was really close to and she ended up getting closer to the person I was dating and I couldn't use her as a confidante anymore. It was difficult but fascinating." Remember that sentiment. McMurtry describes the entire collection as "downers to some extent." He carefully divides his stark narratives into two groups: reflective, nostalgic downers and vindictive, nasty ones. McMurtry frequently mirrors Townes Van Zandt analyzing his own songs: "I have a few that aren't sad, they're hopeless, about totally hopeless situations." "Hope is where you choose to see it, so maybe you can imagine a place where these people come to terms with the problems," he explains. "However, I don't think that resolution is presented in the material. They're snapshots of difficult places without clear indications of where they will end." His novelist's eye offers striking attention to detail throughout.b"Curtis is frightfully observant and unflinching in his approach and has a refined voice for storytelling," producer Will Sexton says. "He's an absurd creature who you can't stop staring at and wanting to listen to." Songwriting legend Jon Dee Graham eagerly doubles down: "Respectable Enemy's an honest recording of good performances and well-written songs. I wish I could've played the guitar on 'Wire.' It's wonderful. I would've loved to fuck some shit up there." More on DENNIS BRENNAN Music is in his blood and it shows not just in the impressive body of work, but in the workman like attitude he brings to the stage each and every time. It's what inspired J. Geils frontman Peter Wolf to remark, "The biggest challenge for any artist is to sustain and keep growing. Many musicians who stick with it can fall into a trap of becoming parodies of themselves. Dennis has always kept maturing, which is one of the hardest challenges, and that's why I always enjoy checking him out." It's also why band mate Duke Levine says "Dennis is such a strong performer, he never phones it in, and that means everything to a sideman. If Dennis is giving something that is amazing, then you'd better give it, too." Or as guitarist Kevin Barry says, "I have never played with Dennis when he gives less than 100 percent." Dennis Brennan is a local treasure and he continues to impress and evolve. Do not miss your chance to see him... every Wednesday night right in your own back yard. The Dennis Brennan Band performs two sets every Wednesday night starting at 9:00 (8:30 doors). Ticket price may vary from week to week.

A Sunday Afternoon Improvisational Music Voyage
Journeys in Sound Presents: A Sunday Afternoon Improvisational Music Voyage with the debut of Otobus Trio plus David Tronzo & Jussi Reijonen in a special duo performance
When a singer and a pianist from Turkey and a saxophonist from France meet not only musically but also humanistically, it leads to the creation of the Otobus Trio.
Otobus is a very practical ground transportation, not always comfortable but you can be sure to meet good travel friends and see beautiful landscapes! Burcu Gulec (voice) , Eren Basbug (piano) and Sylvie Leys(saxophone) play that music, not always comfortable and sometimes chaotic, but always alive and true. Seeking  a synthesis between eastern melodies and western jazz, the trio loves to improvise and plays original compositions.  This will be their debut appearance as a trio..

David Tronzo 
is one if the truly unique and innovative guitarists in the world today. He is considered a pioneer of extended techniques for bottleneck slide guitar. He has recorded and toured with John Cale, the Lounge Lizards, &  Wayne Horvitz, to name a few, and has been voted one of the Top Ten Jazz Guitarists by Musician Magazine in 1994 and one of the Top 100 Guitarists of the 20th Century in its 1993 Press Poll.
Jussi Reijonen is a Finnish born fretted/fretless guitarist & oudist who last year released a critically acclaimed debut album, "un". Jussi has had the honor of performing  with the likes of renowned jazz drummer Jack DeJohnette, flamenco master Pepe de Lucia, Palestinian oud/violin master Simon Shaheen, and the Turkish gypsy clarinet legend Hüsnü Seniendirci, to name a few.
The rare pairing of David Tronzo and Jussi Reijonen should guarantee an exciting interplay of creativity and improvisational spark.

Susan Israel, project artist of Rising Tides, is marking the flood levels with fish that show the impact of rising sea levels and climate change in four T stations: Kendall, Courthouse, UMASS and World Trade Center. June Krinsky-Rudder and her Revere Public High School students helped make the artwork at Kendall and Courthouse. Come hear about where the project has been and its future plans. By Susan Israel of the Energy Necklace Project.

Forever Family Portrait Day!

To celebrate National Adoption Day, and in a spirit of giving back to our community, Krista Photography is excited to announce that we will once again be offering FREE family portraits for adoptive families on Saturday, November 29th!  We believe that adopting a child into your life is one of the most generous things you can do, so we want to bless and encourage these special families by giving them a photograph to celebrate their “Forever Family!” 

Who may participate:       Any family that has adopted or is in the process of adopting one or more children.

 What do you get:            A brief portrait session to capture a nice portrait of your Forever Family, with one of our professional photographers.  One or more of the best images from your portrait session will be edited and uploaded to our proofing site, www.pictage.com, where you will receive a $25 credit towards the purchase of prints or digital downloads of your photos. Additional prints may be purchased a la carte, but are not necessary.  [e.g. $10.99/5x7, $21.99/8x10, and $50.00/digital download with rights released] 

 When:                             Saturday, November 29, 2014 from 9:00am – 5:00pm – just a week after National Adoption Day!

 Where:                            GENESIS - 35 Olympia Ave, Woburn, MA 01801 (Right off of 95 at the Washington Street exit). 

 How:                               Families must register via Eventbrite to reserve your spot.  Please sign-up by purchasing a free ticket for one of the 30-minute time slots available - ONE TICKET PER FAMILY. We ask that you arrive at the beginning of your scheduled time slot.  Families will be photographed on a first come, first serve basis and we will do our best to take families within the 30 minute window for which they have registered.  Due to space limitations, portraits will be limited to 8 people per family (if you have a larger family, please contact us directly to work out an alternative).  If you are unable to attend, please give at least 48 hours advance notice so families on the waiting list may attend.

 Why:                               We truly believe that adoption is one of the most generous acts of humanity, and we want to bless your new family with the gift of capturing your Forever Family in a photo that will last for generations!  We are so excited to be able to offer this special event and cannot wait to meet you!

 **Please note, while we appreciate how important the furry members of your family are, we are unable to accommodate pets at this event due to liability issues**

Walk the Innovation Trail of Boston & Cambridge

Want to learn more about the scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs who made Boston one of the most innovative cities in the world? And get a feel for the places that are spawning a whole new wave of breakthroughs? Join us on September 28th for a special walking tour of the Innovation Trail of Boston and Cambridge. This is something that happens just once a year — and sometimes less!

ALL proceeds will be donated to a worthy nonprofit. And when you register, you get a vote on which one. (Your four choices: Computer ClubhouseScience Club for GirlsBUILD Boston, or the MassTLC Education Foundation.)

We'll visit the Ether Dome at Mass General Hospital, where anesthesia was first demonstrated successfully...learn about the "incubator" space where Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell once worked, and see early telephones and switchboards...get inside the Cambridge Innovation Center, home to more startups than any other single building in the world...and visit a rooftop garden recently renovated by Google as part of the expansion of its Cambridge office.

Your hosts are Bob Krim, historian and director of the Innovation-Entrepreneurship Center at Framingham State University, and Scott Kirsner, Innovation Economy columnist of the Boston Globe.

We'll plan to gather at noon somewhere you can grab coffee or a snack — you'll get details when you register — and start promptly at 12:30. The starting point is close to the Park Street, Government Center, State Street, and Downtown Crossing T stops. We'll wrap up within walking distance of the Central and Kendall T stops on the Red Line (which will return you quickly to Park Street.) You'll also be close to good spots to grab a drink, a coffee, or an ice cream cone.

We hope you can join us.

(We'll reschedule in the event of pouring rain, but otherwise will run the tour on Sep 28th. Once you buy a ticket, there are no refunds — sorry. But you may transfer it to another person.)

Roomful of Teeth

Visiting Artists: The vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth premieres Elena Ruehr’s Cassandra in the Temples, a one-act opera based on a libretto by Gretchen E. Henderson that explores the themes of mysticism, disaster, hysteria, and belief in a new ecological interpretation of the apocalyptic Greek myth.  Ruehr received a Guggenheim to compose this work.  Also on the program will be works by Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, Evan Ziporyn, Christine Southworth and others. 

 

Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, Roomful of Teeth is a vocal octet dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice — from yodeling to Inuit throat singing. Through study with masters from non-classical traditions the world over, the eight voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an on-going commissioning project, invites today’s brightest composers to create a repertoire without borders. In 2014, the ensemble won a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance. 


Tickets prices same at the door.
