Becca Mancari brings stripped-down, folksy songwriting to the Basement East 7.12

For Becca Mancari, making music is a showcase of humanity. It's evident in her songs the effort to convey who she is, through her confident and evocative alto. Through music retaining the twang Nashville is renown for, Mancari informs all of her songwriting with her life experiences, specifically those that involve her travels—she’s lived everywhere from Staten Island to Zimbabwe. She’ll be playing a show with Bermuda Triangle and Liz Cooper at the Basement East on July 12th. - Lilly Milman, photograph by Zachary Gray

James Moore

Local musican James Moore of The Dirty Nines and Moore & Pearson has partnered with Jimmy Kurz and Flannel Friday Productions to produce a fascinating new web series. Can I Sing You A Song? follows Moore around the West Coast while he offers to sing to strangers. It is a 6 part series that follows Moore for 12 days across 9 cities.


Weekend Warrior, July 7 - 9

This Saturday, Union Transfer hosts a billing that generates power via proximity. (Sandy) Alex G floats feathered layers of intersecting instrumentation, establishing a complex reassuring sense of melody. Placing pensively introspective narratives on top of delicately detailed compositions, his tunes are capable of swaying you into submission and/or abruptly shifting sonic gears and ripping it up. And as we await the official release of her new album Soft Sounds From Another Planet (due out July 14 via Dead Oceans), Japanese Breakfast captivates with cosmos-venturing, silky serenades and dramatically danceable tracks that waft into the ether, while sinking in deep. In support of their recent full-length debut #1 Hit Single, available via Double Double Whammy, Brooklyn quartet Cende cracks the doors open with a jangly, jarring brand of power pop. - Michael Colavita

Lightning Bug brings atmospheric folk to Baby's All Right 07.08

New York's indie-pop quartet Lightning Bug is playing at Baby's All Right on July 8th, at the release show for the immigrant rights benefit compilation entitled "So Many Singing." Lightning Bug's most recent EP, 'the torment of love,' showcases the band's affinity for atmospheric bedroom pop, as well as melodic folk-rock sensibilities reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. - Ethan Ames
