Description:

The magnificently rich sound of two acoustic guitars conjures up the ancient musical landscapes of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Brittany in the hands of Celtic guitar masters Steve Baughman and Robin Bullock. These two virtuosos together in concert, surrounded by guitars (and the occasional cittern, mandolin or banjo) and completely relaxed with their audience, form an irresistible onstage synergy. Traditional airs, jigs and reels blend with the timeless harp compositions of Irelands legendary bard Turlough OCarolan, hypnotic Breton dances, rollicking Appalachian fiddle tunes and soulful meditations from both sides of the Atlantic, as two of North Americas leading Celtic guitarists join forces to create a uniquely beautiful sonic experience.Steve and Robin met as instructors at the Swannanoa Gatherings Guitar Week in 2000, sat down to share a few tunes informally, immediately realized that something very special was happening, and proceeded to capture that magic on their debut duo CD Celtic Guitar Summit. Honored by Acoustic Guitar Magazine with three Editors Pick awards as one of the top CDs of the year, Celtic Guitar Summit sheds new light on OCarolans enchanting melodies and on the long history of Celtic music they inspired, according to The Washington Post. Sing Out! hailed Celtic Guitar Summit as a shimmering collection of haunting melodies, ringing tones and consummate musicianship, while Dirty Linen warned that the CD was guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. Other side effects may include uncontrollable smiling or blissful humming.Since then, Steve and Robin have toured as a duo whenever their schedules would allow, on both coasts of the U.S. as well as in Canada and Italy, made cameo appearances on each others solo CDs, and finally, in 2014, teamed up in the recording studio again for their long-awaited second CD, Alone and Together, earning five-star rave reviews from Amazon to Allmusic.

Big Mean Sound MachineAsheville Music HallSaturday December 2ndIthaca, NY-based intelligent dance music powerhouse Big Mean Sound Machine is proud to announce their 2017 fall tour, continuing the celebration of their new, fan-funded album Runnin’ for the Ghost and teaming up with the Campaign for New York Health to build support for the New York Health Act, a bill in the state legislature which would guarantee health care to all New York state residents regardless of age, wealth, place of employment, or immigration status. From the band:“Since its inception, one of the core values of Big Mean Sound Machine has been to bring people and communities together in celebration and healing through music and dance. In these wild times, we feel it is important for musicians and artists to stand up for our creative communities. After reading this bill and reflecting on the state of healthcare in this country, especially compared to that of other first world nations, we feel it imperative that people be made aware of how healthcare reform could truly benefit everybody; and what better place to start than in the beautiful state of New York which we proudly call home. The New York Health Act has passed the state assembly the past three years in a row and is one state senate co-sponsor short of majority support. We are actually very close to making universal health care a reality in New York and we hope that the feelings of community, compassion, solidarity and freedom generated at our live shows can spill over to help raise awareness of what a equitable and more affordable health care system that benefits all of us could look like.”Currently, over a million New Yorkers have no health insurance, including some of your favorite artists and musicians. Millions more residents are underinsured and unable to afford unexpected medical costs. The New York Health Act will provide universal, comprehensive health care coverage and billions of dollars in savings for New York families, businesses, and local governments. All New Yorkers would be covered for all medically necessary services, including: primary, preventive, specialists, hospital, mental health, reproductive health care, dental, vision, prescription drug, and medical supply costs. The care provided under New York Health would be more comprehensive than plans offered by health insurance companies today. There would be no out-of-pocket costs as barriers to health care.A detailed study of the New York Health Act, conducted by Professor Gerald Friedman of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, showed tens of billions in savings by streamlining the administration of our healthcare system to a single-payer funding stream[1]. Most of the savings is found in eliminating insurance company administrative cost and profits, and slashing the enormous administrative costs health care providers spend to deal with insurance companies. Another significant area of savings is due to negotiating better prices for drugs with the pharmaceutical companies; and for medical devices with their manufacturers. Information about the NY Health Act and how individuals can get involved will be available at all New York shows and a portion of each show’s proceeds will go towards the Campaign for New York Health, a statewide coalition dedicated to passing and implementing legislation for universal health care in New York State who believes that healthcare is a human right that should be accessible to all of us, not just those who can afford to pay.Tickets and more information can be found at bigmeansoundmachine.com

Genre: Funk/ElectronicCover: Donations @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+Doctor OcularToward the end of 2016, the four members of Doctor Ocular met for sessions of improvisational jams hosted by roommates Austin Herron (drums) and Nick Castro (bass). Later that winter, they were asked to play at a friend’s downtown party, and the group performed their improv fusion-rock sets at a myriad of local house parties and events. In April of 2017, after being asked to perform for a fundraiser concert in Johnson City, TN, the group composed and rehearsed a set of new, original material and played under the name “Doctor Ocular." Since then, Doctor Ocular has continued to write original music, arrange covers, and play shows. The band features a blend of funky-rock and electronic dance elements; at some points sounding like a more traditional rhythm quartet with clean guitar and keyboard tones, then flipping abruptly with heavy synth patches, ambient pedals, and dance beats to function more like a jamtronica project. Throughout 2017, Doctor Ocular has been featured at festivals and venues throughout the southeast and they are set to release their debut record at the end of the year.Deja FuzeEstablished in 2009, in Buffalo, NY, Deja Fuze is a band set on high gear that emanates a progressive, electric, fusion sound, in the vein of Lotus, Jeff Beck, and Yes. They have played shows all around the Western New York, and Western Carolina area since their inception, turning heads as they did so. Some Sort ofGreen, their first full-length album has been let loose, and the group is ready to once again oscillate your life.web: https://www.dejafuze.com/vid: https://youtu.be/wzdb2lBlL1M

with Yip Deceiver
Known the world over as a vocalist, songwriter, and founding member of the one and only B-52s, Cindy Wilson has made a truly extraordinary solo debut with her new CHANGE (Kill Rock Stars). The album which arrives just in time to celebrate the legendary singers fortieth anniversary in the musical spotlight marks a milestone for Wilson, abounding with pop creativity, ingenious production, confident songcraft, and deeply felt emotion.This music is beautiful, she says. And I love beautiful.CHANGE began for Wilson nearly a decade ago upon her part-time return to her hometown of Athens, GA. She first encountered local musician Ryan Monahan when his Beatles tribute band was hired to play her sons birthday party One of the best parties ever, says Wilson. The veteran vocalist and talented young musician began teaming up for gigs, beginning with R.E.M.s star-studded 30th anniversary event.Ryan and drummer Lemuel Hayes and I put together a few songs and it was fantastic, Wilson says. That started our own musical relationship.Wilson and her new bandmates continued performing together, first playing classic garage and psychedelic covers but ultimately deciding to create new music all their own. They hit the studio in 2014, with local producer-musician Suny Lyons manning the board. The songs and sonic concepts flowed like the Broad River, leading Wilson to invite Lyons to join her fast developing combo.We went to Sunys studio to kick around ideas and see if we can do anything interesting, Wilson says. We wanted to see how our styles would blend. He comes from a totally different place than I do but I was great. It also became immediately clear we had to bring Suny in to be part of the band, he also had wonderful ideas. I had a really great team.Backed by her gifted collaborators, Wilson developed a distinctive sound that is both utterly contemporaneous and also rooted in her long history of kaleidoscopic pop reinvention. A pair of EPs SUNRISE and SUPERNATURAL introduced the world to Wilsons modern vision, with both EPs acclaimed by PopMatters for possessing an undeniable sense of adventure.Produced by Lyons at The Space Station in Athens, CHANGE is as bold as anything in Wilsons groundbreaking four decade canon, melding future pop, disco drama, American standards, electronica, and more into her own distinctive creative vision. New songs like Mystic and the transformative title track are intricate and inventive, lush and luminous with strings, synthesizers, harmonies, and Wilsons utterly distinct vocal magic.Our sound is both consistent and still evolving, Wilson says. All these ingredients come together from left field to create something really interesting.Further album highlights include a pair of unexpected covers: a widescreen orchestral rendition of New Colony Sixs soft rock classic, Things Id Like to Say, and Brother, written and originally performed by Athens own beloved Oh-OK.We played a show, Athens musicians playing songs by other Athens bands, Wilson says. We did an R.E.M. song, a Pylon song, and Brother by Oh-OK, which turned out so great we decided it had to be on record. It hits you over the head; its an interesting texture. It brings the album home I think.Though she is fast to praise her musical partners contributions, the center of CHANGE is Wilsons instantly identifiable voice, as radiantly human as anything in her prior work only now being showcased in heretofore-unprecedented fashion.My voice is very rustic, she says with a smile. It has a realness that I hope comes through.A veteran of one of pops most consistently entertaining live acts, Wilson is heralding CHANGE with an unprecedented multimedia concert tour. Merging conceptual structure, unique visuals, and kicked off in March with SXSW, Wilson and her bandmates are touring the US (in a van, it should be mentioned).The show is totally different from anything Ive done before, Wilson says. It has an incredible flow, from beginning to end. The great thing about touring a show like this is you can solve problems and tweak things as you go along.With CHANGE, Cindy Wilson has once again remade pop in her own innovative, irresistible image. Excited and energized by the experience, the iconic artist is already looking forward to her next evolution.Everyone has other bands, other jobs, Wilson says. Ive got the B-52s fortieth anniversary, theres a lot going on with that. At the same time, Im very committed to this record and continuing to perform with these guys. Were trying to go into the studio at least once a month, to continue working creatively and keep the songs coming. Were still experimenting, still growing, but it retains a certain sound. I feel very comfortable in this band. Im loving it.

Featuring the great Claude Coleman Jr. of Ween on drums!The Mike Dillon Band:WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEO • 2015 Drummies Artist Awards - Winner Rock/Pop/Hip-Hop Percussionist• 2015 Drummies Artist Awards - Runner up Percussionist of The Year• 2014 Downbeat Critics Choice -- Vibraphone• 2014 Downbeat Readers Poll Winner - Vibraphone• 2012, 2013 and 2014 Downbeat Rising Star How many artists can claim being praised a "punk rock provocateur," "jazz vibraphone visionary" and "percussion virtuoso" in the same sentence? There's only one: Mike Dillon. Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Brave Combo and Ani DiFranco, collaborations such as Garage A Trois, The Dead Kenny Gs and Critters Buggin or bands he's fronted, including Billy Goat and Hairy Apes BMX, the Texas-native has set his own standard for 25 years now.Pulling from an arsenal of musicians Dillon has played with and known over the years, he will be touring with some of the "baddest" musicians on the planet including Claude Coleman Jr. (Ween), Norwood Fisher (Fishbone), Doug Belote (Ernie K. Doe), Andre Chomondeley (Project Object), James SIngleton (James Booker) , Patrick McDevitt (Band Of Outsiders), Johnny Vidacovich (Professor Longhair), JJ Jungle (The Coup), David Butler (American Babies), Brad Houser (Critters Buggin), Robb Kidd (Papa Mali), and many more.Dillon's most recent recording Band of Outsiders was crafted at Studio Center in Miami with the help of co-producers Gary Vandy and Richard Maloney Jr. Vandy is an old school engineer whose work includes over 200 platinum records predominantly in the disco and dance genres. His love of Zappa is what attracted him to Dillon’s work. In the age of pro-tools chicanery, the production is straightforward, capturing Dillon and his band playing live in a room.“Two tours of Mexico and a steady dose of Brazilian music was the jumping off point for these new songs,” explains Dillon. “Add our love for The Melvins, Deerhoof, Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, Trouble Funk and all things New Orleans and this album surpasses our intention to make the freakiest, most vibrant dance music on the planet.”Lyrically speaking, Mike Dillon draws from his love of Miguel de Cervantes, William Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut and Robert Anton Wilson to tell stories of New Orleans debauchery mixed with age-old themes of travel, love, self-destruction and greed. Delivered with Dillon’s trademark vocal rasp, the record has the intensity of a Tom Waits-meets-Frank Zappa black comedy. Rumor has it that Dillon lived in the same apartment that Waits shared with Rickie Lee Jones for the past seven years. However, Dillon discounts those rumors: "This apartment has housed dudes from Morning 40 Federation, Ani DiFranco, an old Conga player and a bunch of heroin addicts.”Taken in its entirety, Mike Dillon's Band of Outsiders is a snapshot of four musicians hitting full stride. Having relentlessly toured the country in 2013—both headlining and opening for artists like Fishbone, Clutch, Primus and Galactic—its 13 songs bristle with a group mind, spill over the sides with the visions invoked during countless dead-of-night drives crisscrossing the country in a van and hit their target with a sonic assault only possible from a band that’s played 400-plus shows over the last two years.“People are always trying to figure out how to describe our music. Maybe we should call it New Orleans punk jazz Brazilian math rock? It’s a gumbo of tribal percussion, The Meters, old school hardcore, Brazil, hard bop and anything else that might move us,” concludes Dillon. “But you know, I really don’t care what you call it. We kick out the jams harder than anyone, and we also know when to heed the lessons of The Minutemen's Double Nickels On The Dime and keep things straight to the point. There’s a reason we called the record what we did. We’re the living, breathing definition of a band of outsiders, but together we deliver simple majestic beauty, let’s leave it at that.”

Ages 18+

For more than two decades, Gin Blossoms have defined the sound of jangle pop. From their late 80s start as Arizona’s top indie rock outfit, the Tempe-based combo has drawn critical applause and massive popular success for their trademark brand of chiming guitars, introspective lyricism, and irresistible melodies. Gin Blossoms soon unfurled a chain of crossover favorites spanning five different formats, from “Hey Jealousy” and “Until I Fall Away” to “Follow You Down” and the GRAMMY®-nominated “As Long As It Matters,” earning the band sales in excess of 10 million in the US alone.

“It’s a really rare thing,” singer/guitarist Robin Wilson says of Gin Blossoms’ continuing saga. “So many chapters in this long story.”

Wilson, guitarist Jesse Valenzuela, and bassist Bill Leen co-founded Gin Blossoms in 1987 and quickly became the toast of the Grand Canyon State’s local scene. Blending an array of influences – from The Beatles and The Byrds to The Band and The Buckaroos – with pure pop songwriting and their own post-adolescent energy, the band hit upon a truly thrilling sonic approach that instantly set them at the forefront of the always-adventurous American underground.

“A lot of it was really folk based,” Valenzuela says. “Some of it English, some American. Then we’d just play it too fast and too loud.”

“We were on a course,” Wilson says, “inspired by our influences. The bands that unified us were our forefathers like Cheap Trick and R.E.M, The Replacements and The Plimsouls. Those were bands that all of us as Gin Blossoms had in common. When people ask me, what kinda band are you in, I say, ‘We’re a classic rock band.’”

Having taken the local scene by storm with their magnetic live show, Gin Blossoms made their recorded debut in 1989 with Dusted. The album – released on the influential Arizona indie label, San Jacinto Records – highlighted Valenzuela and Wilson’s nascent knack for preternaturally catchy hooks and vigorous musicianship. It wasn’t long before the majors came a-callin’, with A&M Records ultimately the lucky label to get Gin Blossoms’ signature on a contract.

“They really believed in us,” Valenzuela says. “They showed the support that made us a better band.”

Gin Blossoms immediately released 1991’s self-recorded Up and Crumbling EP and got right to work on their major label debut proper. The band hit Memphis’ legendary Ardent Studio to record with equally famed producer/engineer John Hampton (The Replacements, Alex Chilton, The Cramps), armed with such now-classic tunes as “Until I Fall Away,” “Allison Road” “Hey Jealousy,” and “Found Out About You,” the latter two penned by founding member Doug Hopkins. Sadly, Hopkins was asked to leave the band before the album’s completion and later took his own life. Lead guitar duties were then taken up by Scott “Scotty” Johnson who promptly put his own indelible six-string imprint on the band’s guitar-driven sound.

Justly regarded as one of the era’s milestone works, New Miserable Experience earned critical acclaim upon its 1992 arrival before exploding into the popular consciousness. “Hey Jealousy” was one of 1993’s essential singles, ruling the top 5 at Mainstream Rock radio before ascending to the top 25 on Billboard’s “Hot 100.” The following year saw “Found Out About You” reach equivalent height on the “Hot 100,” while also eclipsing its predecessor by reaching the #1 spot on Billboard’s “Modern Rock Tracks” tally.

Gin Blossoms toured hard as they wrote their next album, scoring still another smash in the meantime with “Til I Hear It From You,” the first single from A&M’s Empire Records: The Soundtrack. The unforgettable track – written by Valenzuela, Wilson, and the great singer/songwriter Marshall Crenshaw – was hailed by Billboard as “the closest thing to a perfect pop song to hit radio in recent memory,” and as such, duly rose all the way to the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100.”

“I liken it to a chair,” Wilson says. “A big gothic throne or a mid-century antique is different from what you can get for $15 from Target, even though they work exactly the same way. It’s the same with songs – every song has the same parts, a chorus, solo, all of that, but there’s something that separates something of quality from something that’s not. In our case, I’d say we’ve got a full set of pretty decent chairs.”

“Til I Hear It From You” confirmed Gin Blossoms as surefire soundtrack favorites and their songs were soon featured on the RIAA gold and/or platinum certified companion albums to such blockbusters as Speed, Wayne’s World 2, and several others. The band were also inescapable presences on TV, dominating MTV and performing on such prestigious shows as Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Saturday Night Live.

Congratulations I’m Sorry arrived at last in 1996 and immediately ascended to the top 10 on the Billboard 200, fueled in part by the top 5 single, “Follow You Down.” Moreover, the album’s next single, “As Long As It Matters,” earned Gin Blossoms a prestigious GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Performance by a Duo or Group.” Alas, the band was denied the prize as an up-and-coming young Liverpudlian combo took home the trophy in their stead.

“It was pretty cool to lose a GRAMMY® to The Beatles,” Valenzuela says. “Who else would you want to lose out to?”

Having dominated radio and MTV playlists for most of the 90s, Gin Blossoms took a brief turn of the century hiatus, a provisional parting of the ways that Wilson chalks up to “personal dissatisfaction and the mistaken impression that we could perform at that same level with another group.” The brief break allowed Valenzuela and Wilson to reenergize via solo recordings, new combos, and production credits for an array of local Arizona acts. However, Gin Blossoms’ idiosyncratic magic proved impossible to ignore for long and on New Years Eve 2001 in their hometown of Tempe the band reconvened and never looked back.

“There’s a certain civility among us now,” Valenzuela says. “None of us are as brusque as we once were. We’re too old to have shouting matches.”

The revivified band hit the road hard, earning a well-deserved reputation as one of the busiest touring acts in the world, playing close to 150 shows a year. Those chops were readily apparent on 2006’s Major Lodge Victory – Gin Blossoms’ long awaited fourth album and first new recording in almost a decade. Rave reviews followed, as did a top 10 Triple A smash in the album’s lead single, “Learning The Hard Way.”

As ever, Gin Blossoms traveled the globe in support of Major Lodge Victory and beyond, their singular onstage power captured for posterity on 2009’s Gin Blossoms Live In ConcertNo Chocolate Cake, the band’s fifth studio collection and 429 Records debut, proved another popular success upon its 2010 arrival, reaching #1 on the Amazon.com sales chart while also earning yet another Hot AC hit with “Miss Disarray.”

Gin Blossoms’ non-stop itinerary carried on, with highlights including a five-city tour of Iraq and Kuwait in 2010. In addition to innumerable headline dates, the band – now featuring drummer Scott Hessell performing alongside Wilson, Valenzuela, Leen, and Johnson – have shared the top of the bill on a pair of successful summer tours featuring an array of chart topping stars from the 90s. Summerland in 2012 was followed by 2013’s Under The Sun Tour, a traveling summer festival co-headlined by Gin Blossoms alongside fellow alternative icons Sugar Ray and Smash Mouth. In 2014 Gin Blossoms headlined their own tour as well as performed a mixture of shows with Artists from classic rock to modern alternative.

“It’s a good time,” Valenzuela says. “The vibe is pretty loving. There are fans from the old days and fans from today. It blows my mind to see these 20-year-old kids – I’m like, ‘Dude, what are you doing here?’ But somebody hipped them to this music and they’re there to enjoy it like anybody else.”

“This is equal to anything we’ve done in our career,” Wilson says. “I look back on the big tours we did in our heyday – playing sheds with Neil Young and The Goo Goo Dolls, touring Europe with Bryan Adams, things like that – and it was easy to take it all for granted. I’m really glad we’ve been able to earn our way back into that realm.”

The road has also proven exceedingly fertile ground for both Valenzuela and Wilson, with each talented tunesmith promising the inevitable arrival of new Gin Blossoms material. As they approach their third decade, Gin Blossoms remain a rare breed – rock ‘n’ roll lifers, destined to continue creating, crafting, and performing for audiences ever rapt by their glorious catalog of material.

“David Anderle was a legendary producer and A&R guy,” Valenzuela says. “He worked with everybody from Frank Zappa and the Doors to Kris Kristofferson and the Circle Jerks and he signed us at A&M. He told me once, “Y’know, you’re lucky – you’ve created a scenario for yourself where you can go play music for the rest of your life. Isn’t that what you wanted when you started?’ As up and down as this might be sometimes, I’m still comforted by that.”

“We’re entertaining and we have chops,” says Wilson, “but it really comes down to the songs. The reason we’re still here is that we have good songs. When young musicians ask me for advice, what’s the best thing to do to further my career, I always say, ‘Write good songs.’ It always comes down to that.”

Are you looking for a quick crash course to help you find mental strategies or breathing strategies to cope with labor?  Does your partner need some guidance on how to support you during your birth?  Do you have some fears or anxieties about the big day and how you are going to get through it?  Comfort measures are not just for an unmedicated vaginal birth, but are useful and often most needed when labor does not go the way we planned. Join us for this 1 1/2 hour class to give mom's tools to feel safe and strong during her labor and help her relax down into the sensations she will feel rather than fight them.  Partners will leave this class knowing when to talk, what to say (understanding your mama's love lanugage), how to support, how to touch and bring pain relief both during and between contractions.  This is a Homegrown Babies community offering that is offered at no charge!
