    Rapper Amine To Perform At Toad's Place

    Here's a prediction: you won't be able to see rapper Amine at a venue as intimate as Toad's Place by the end of 2018. The Portland, Oregon-raised rapper just released his debut album, "Good For You," in the summer. He's already established a confident visual style through a series of interconnected...

      Giacomo Gates Quartet Performing At Jazz Week In New Haven

      Jazz Week New Haven features, as you might guess, a ton of jazz packed into one week in the Elm City. There will be a dozen concerts over the week, at venues big and small. And many of the shows are free. It all starts with Connecticut's Giacomo Gates, a cool and mellow vocalist who has demonstrated...

      • Pianist Holly Bowling At StageOne

        Pianist Holly Bowling At StageOne

        The piano has long been the ideal vehicle for distilling complex multi-instrument pieces of music into solo settings. At least since Liszt did his Wagner transcriptions, talented pianists have gravitated toward ambitious group compositions as a kind of solitary musical version of scaling Mt. Everest....

        • Molly Hatchet Plays The Southern Rocktober Fest At The Oakdale

          Molly Hatchet Plays The Southern Rocktober Fest At The Oakdale

          Southern rock is a big tent. Some bands go swampy. Some foreground the blues. Some showcase a country twang. Harmonized guitar solos are prized. A little soul and moan isn't out of place. As with the relationship between American cooking and Southern cuisine — a lot of American rock is Southern...

          • Math Rock Band Tera Melos To Play The Ballroom

            Math Rock Band Tera Melos To Play The Ballroom

            Tera Melos is a trio that's fond of odd time signatures, the kind of metric hiccups and stagger-step phrasing that thwarts attempts to clap along. The California-based trio likes whiplash accents and crunchy dissonance, coupled with sinister, creeping intervallic movements, tritones and stuff like...

            • New Found Glory At Toad's Place

              New Found Glory At Toad's Place

              Florida pop-punkers New Found Glory released "Makes Me Sick," their ninth studio album, on Hopeless Records earlier this year. The lead single is "Happy Being Miserable." You get the feeling that the band has a sort of fed-up attitude, but their music isn't really mopey at all: it's all jacked...

                Sarah Borges And The Broken Singles At Café Nine

                Sarah Borges' 2016 EP "Good and Dirty" starts off with a pounding workmanlike beat and it kicks even more into rock mode when the guitars jump in. Borges sings with an appealing scratch and break to her voice. She's got a little Tom Petty, a little Tanya Tucker, and a little Foo Fighters in her...

                • Jazz Trio Levin, Malaby, Peterson At Firehouse 12

                  Jazz Trio Levin, Malaby, Peterson At Firehouse 12

                  Avante-jazz cellist Daniel Levin, tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby and free jazz drummer Randy Peterson are all innovative improvisers who can be both daring and extra subtle. Vermont-born Levin has improvised along with dancers, and he's also played saxophone for a time as a way of liberating his...
