Invictus Picks -- Goddard -- N/S

 ip

Goddard is a three piece band that's named after a rocket scientist. Not just any rocket scientist, but Robert H. Goddard who happened to grow up in the house across the street from members Jason and Anne in Worcester. How's that for props? Not only do they name their rock band after a local hero, but they also dive in headfirst to cultivate and perpetuate a scene. Jason and Anne met their drummer Dan while they were working on the project DC-FIY the goal being to purchase a warehouse to start an all ages DIY venue in Worcester. Although the warehouse never turned up, these guys threw countless all-ages DIY shows and continue to play great, mostly all-ages shows like the one a few weeks ago at the Flywheel in Easthampton.

Goddard

Here is “N/S,” a track off their EP. They're influences are bands like HUM, The Pixies and Drive like Jehu. They have a lot of plans: first, a mini-tour in the mid-west next week. Then, into the studio to record a full length and then they're off to Brazil to play some festivals. Wow. Don't waste any time guys!

Legend: J = Jury - OS = Open Submissions - W = Deli Writers - F = Fans

Thanks to all the jurors and the bands and the fans who helped us put together this list of artists. Please don't take our poll too seriously (but not even too lightly, as these are great new bands!), we see it as a fun, playful way to give exposure to deserving emerging local artists, and as an opportunity to keep our finger on the New England scene's pulse.

There's No Passion in Perfection - Interview with Lori McKenna

 lori mckenna

 

With her new album Lorraine released January 25th, and a full schedule of shows and appearances to support the new release, Lori McKenna didn’t think twice about dropping everything to help a friend in need.  

On January 21st Lori co-headlined a bill with Aimee Mann at the Paradise in Boston. Proceeds from the benefit show will help support their mutual friend and well-known Boston-area drummer, John Sands who suffered a massive heart attack in November but is now on the road to recovery. The show was organized by a group of friends, dubbed Team Huggy and the Boston music community came out in force on the 21st to help one of their own. In addition to headliners Mann and McKenna, the night also featured The Jess Tardy Band and Ron Sexsmith, both members of John Sands’ musical family. In addition to the music, Team Huggy organized a silent auction featuring tickets to sold-out shows, in-home concerts and sport and music memorabilia galore.  

Little more than half an hour after returning with her bandmates from a performance at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, ME and dropping the kids off at their Sunday activities, Lori spent some time talking with about John, the benefit event, and her new album, Lorraine. 

On John Sands and the Paradise Show

“I haven’t played with a full band for over a year but as far as I’m concerned, John is my drummer. I’m in a job where I get to know a lot of people. John is at the top of my list of people that I like to be around. He changed everything for me dynamically when we started playing together. I have my own little rhythm issues because I’m used to playing solo. I can only really play with a handful of drummers and John and I just clicked. As a musician, he’s one of the best we have and as a person he’s also one of the best. It’s very true when you hear people say they love John. People use the word ’love’ a lot but its really true. We all really do love John. He’s just a good, good guy." McKenna said. "The only thing that was disappointing about the night was that John couldn’t be there but he was obviously there in spirit. It was nice to see everyone come together for him like that.”
