Wow, if you are in the western Massachusetts area, you need to know about this amazing show. The Demographic is celebrating its album release at The Elevens tomorrow night (Friday May 10), and they are a great act to catch. In addition, fellow Mystic Brian Marchese plays percussion on the album. As if that’s not enough, there are THREE other great bands on the bill. First off, you have TRUCKS, which also features a fellow Mystic in Matt Silberstein. This band is a lot of fun, and was recently made “notorious” on the Awkward Band Photos page on Facebook, a dubious honor they clearly went out of their way to court. Second, you have Easthampton Savings Band, which features Jenna Lloyd and Jeff Lloyd from other renowned Valley acts–I love this band. When I was a judge for the Happy Valley Showdown, their set really captivated me, and it didn’t hurt that Jenna gave cookies to the crowd (and judges–smart move, Jenna). Finally, a new band with friends of mine, The Glad Machine. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they’ve cooked up.
All of this at The Elevens in Northampton, Massachusetts. Friday May 10, showtime is 9:00. By all reports, it will be a crowded and fun night. Here’s the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/450566725017582/
