CHARMING DISASTER / www.charmingdisaster.com
A musical duo based in Brooklyn, NY, features indie bandleaders Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris. They perform tragi-comic duets about love, death, crime, and the paranormal—exploring in song the various kinds of trouble a couple of people can get into with a ukulele and a guitar. New York Music Daily describes Charming Disaster as "jaunty yet absolutely creepy...menacingly charming.” Their song "Ghost Story" was featured on the hit podcast Welcome To Night Vale, and appears on their debut album, "Love, Crime & Other Trouble," released in 2015. Their new album "Cautionary Tales" is due out in April 2017.

ERICA BUETTNER / http://www.ericabuettner.com
Erica Buettner is a singer-songwriter from New England who moved to Europe at the age of 19 and spent the next twelve years as a troubadour winding her way through Paris all the way to the sunny shores of Portugal before making her way back to America in 2016. Her debut album True Love and Water was released to glowing reviews in the UK, USA, Germany, Netherlands, and Korea, and Erica played on some of the most unique stages in Europe, from the Tarantella Folk Festival in Southern Italy to the Rough Trade shop in London. Her second album The Book Of Waves is set for release in June 2017. “Ginsberg-ghosted Parisian-beat-music” - For Folk’s Sake “A graceful, intelligent songwriter and a beguiling singer, Buettner...is a song poet, and listening to the way her lyrics glide with such nonchalant ease through these remarkable songs somehow summon to mind, unbidden, that old Jack Kerouac line about ‘beat’ being the shortened form of ‘beatific’”. – Steve Hunt

JEFFREY LEWIS / http://www.thejeffreylewissite.com/
Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis is a comic book artist and indie-rock musician, sharing some aesthetic songwriting territory with the likes of Sebadoh, Lou Reed, Jonathan Richman or Kimya Dawson. Beginning with homemade lo-fi cassettes in the late 90s, and moving on to touring the world and releasing "proper" albums since 2001, Jeffrey's career has included sharing bills and tours with The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Devo, Pulp and many other luminaries. In between his contemplative folk narratives and garage indie-punk songs Jeffrey is known for including illustrated songs in concert, sometimes covering historical topics (like "The History of Communism"), or strange flights of fancy (like "The Creeping Brain"). Usually touring with his
full rock band, Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts, Jeffrey also occasionally tours as a solo acoustic act. Rough Trade Records (label of The Smiths, The Strokes, etc.) has recently released the seventh Jeffrey Lewis album, “Manhattan,” mixed by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., War on Drugs) and acclaimed in Magnet, Uncut, AllMusic, Les Inrocks and other press outlets; Jeffrey has self-published twelve issues of his comic book series Fuff, and his writing, illustrations, comic books and music have been featured by The Guardian, The History Channel, NPR and The New York Times. “The Big Apple’s best-kept secret.... Genius-gone-ignored... mind-blowing." - NME "Weird? Very... but also downright inspiring" (four of five stars) - Rolling Stone

Dirty Waltz Band - a fundraiser for VOLS

Friday, February 24th, 2017
9:00pm - Dirty Waltz Band (TWO SETS)

This seven-piece band plays more than a dozen instruments in countless genres. Performing originals and arranging songs new and old, they borrow from Balkan, Irish, jazz, blues and American folk traditions. From Tom Waits to Fermin Alvarez, Henry Mancini to Neko Case, their inspirations span oceans and centuries. And what do their songs have in common? They’re all in waltz time. Featuring Ben Arons (drums and percussion), Mollie McQuarrie (accordion and banjolele), Chris Nattrass (double bass), Rob Rapley (guitar and dobro), Susie Greenebaum (violin), Rebecca Hart (guitar and vocals), and Mike Shapiro (piano, harmonica and vocals).

A benefit for Volunteers of Legal Service, providing pro bono legal assistance to low-income New Yorkers (www.volsprobono.org).

The End of America / Spuyten Duyvil

Saturday, February 25th, 2017
The End of America / Spuyten Duyvil
8:00pm - 9:00pm - The End of America
9:15pm - 10:30pm - Spuyten Duyvil

The End of America is a band of friends, singers and travelers who blend three-part harmony with rock and Americana. The Philadelphia-based outfit masters a style that resonates with fans of Ryan Adams, CSNY and Dawes.

All frontmen of previous bands, Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard met on tour in 2005. They went on to form a trio that highlights their vocal chemistry and captures the raw honesty of their performances. TEOA recently wrapped the recording of their debut LP, a follow-up to their previous EPs, Shakey and Steep Bay.

Seeing a Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE+vul") show for the first time is like "throwing a cherry bomb into a lake" (Rich Warren, WFMT). It wakes you up. Their brand of original and traditional American Roots music blends Olde Timey, Blues, 2nd Line, Bluegrass, and Folk Rock with a pinch of Punk Rock energy to create a uniquely modern mix. Lead by song-writing couple, Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, this six piece powerhouse brings barn burning energy to venues throughout the East Coast and Midwest. Drop them on a large festival stage and they electrify the crowd. Place them in a listening room and their stripped down acoustic sets connect powerfully.
