This event is all ages
Commanding attention in New England and beyond, innovative chamber-pop trio Olive Tiger channel the off-kilter bliss of Andrew Bird, tUnE-yArDs and St. Vincent, to create lush arrangements with staying power. Founded in 2013, Olive Tiger has shared the stage with Kishi Bashi, Xenia Rubinos, Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio, Rubblebucket, and Diane Cluck (kin in sonic exploration), in addition to performing at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas. The band is currently touring its full-length record, “Until My Body Breaks”, released fall 2016 by the Telegraph Recording Company. The Day of New London calls the release, “a triumph of exotic and ambitious sonic atmosphere that transforms Olive's visionary pop songs into something very new and distinct."
Dr. Martino is a high energy, garage rock trio influenced by 60s pop and surf music. Sharing songwriting duties, Amy Shaw and Simone Puleo compose sharp guitar and vocal driven pop songs, propelled by the booming, wild drumming of Mike Kaminski. The music of Dr. Martino rifles through a gambit of retro genres, and the lyrics from song to song evoke a spectrum of emotions and moods, from humorous to melancholy, nostalgic to forward-looking.
30th of February
With diverse musical influences ranging from grunge and indie rock to post punk, 30th of February is a combination you won't find in the course of ordinary days.
