Other Music Festival Day 5: Greg Davis, A Snake In The Garden, Toby Aronson, and more

Greg DavisDay 5 of Burlington's Other Music Festival looks to be the cream of the crop for Burlington's ambient/noise outfits and artists. Burlington's godfather to the scene, if you will, Greg Davis, will be making his festival appearance as well as other veterans of the area A Snake in the Garden, Toby Aronson, and Lawrence Welks & Our Bear to Cross. Another exciting collabartion with Ashley Paul and percussionist Eli Keszler is set to grace the stage. Other performers include Katarina Miljovic, Stencil/Magic, and Ensemble V. Looks like there will also be some sort of open improv session, which is sure to birth some interesting sounds. Everything is happening at 8pm at North End Studios.

Left Hand Does release new EP, Lusica June 30th at O'Brien's

Lusica, the title track off Left Hand Does' new EP, is a dreamy but heavy tune influenced by 80's rock such as Crowded House, Tears for Fears and The Pixies. I heard Left Hand Does play Lusica at the Lizard Lounge open mic a while back and loved it immediately. Left Hand Does is fronted by brother and sister Luke and Jean Sullivan, who are awesomely musically dynamic. Check out the video above, and check them out IRL at the EP release party at O'Brien's Pub in Allston on June 30th.

Also fleshing out the night are Johnny T and the Raccoonists, Elbow Room, Michael Gardiner/Derek Beckvoice/Peter Negroponte, Xander Naylor/Ian Kovac, and Zack Cooper/Christ Madden/Vic Dimotis. Things kick off at 8pm at North End Studios as usual.

Mixtape:1993 - 6/12 - Rosebud Diner, Somerville, MA

1993: Kurt Cobain and Bradley Nowell were still with us. The Alt-Rock Seattle scene was finally making it to national radio. Music videos were reaching awesome heights. When I was a teenager I jumped up to record "Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies (came out in 1994 though, but you'll get my point) on the radio on to a blank tape and cut my leg with a pair of scissors I was using to cut out pictures of famous people to paste on my wall and needed to receive eight stitches. It is the biggest scar on my body and it reminds me of that time when I was desperate for the angsty awesome of 90's rock. 1993 was the year music changed from the poppy-WTF 80's cheese into something solid, new and powerful. The kids of the 90's were lucky to have had such a creative bunch of kick-ass musicians on the radio and on a radio who didn't entirely care about corporate sponsors.

This Saturday a group of Boston bands are getting together at the Rosebud Diner in Somerville to celebrate the fateful year. Promising to play songs by: Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows, Nirvana, Belly, REM, Cracker, Morphine, James, New Order and The Breeders. 

The following Boston Bands will be there:

The Luxury
The Rationales

Exile in Somerville (members of Apple Betty, Kingsley Flood, Dark Martini & the Dirty Olives, The So-So's)
St Helena

381 Summer St  Somerville, MA- Rosebud Diner
