BEN PAGANO BAND
Jazz/funk/space pioneers, wacked out keyboards, during which Mr. Pagano may seem transported to another world in order to find the notes, and psychedelic guitar solos will definitely put you in the mood. One part jazz, one part space-rock, one part psychedelic. Pagano's notorious for keeping his audience on their toes and on the edge of their seats as to what sound he'll create next--- and you'll be mentally computing his work like a musical Rubik's cube the whole goddamned train ride home, while still thirsty for more. Will be joined by Nathan Dyer on Guitar, Itamar Tsur on Bass, and Ethan Meyer on drums.
Yes William is Emily Einhorn's latest alter-ego. Einhorn hails from Chicago and declares what she calls a proud Midwestern ethetico, "the quiet resilience of the Midwest with the presence of Chicago's edgy oasis." Lyrically she bridges the gap between strippers and office workers, and vocally is a heart aching experience. Yes William is a fantastical map of lost souls and imaginary geographic locations such as Beggar Town, all emerging from Einhorn's turbulent psyche. Influenced by Tom Waits, Patsy Cline, The Smiths, and Billie Holiday Yes William ventures into a heavy blend of unique musical forces. The punk/rock sound will charge up your heart while the lo-fi americana undertones will strip your soul of it's worries.

REVIEWS OF Ep. Drom-d'reau (May 1, 2013)
"...you may find it hard to get past Track 1, the totally captivating ‘De Liberties’, in which a softly-strummed acoustic guitar appears out of a fog of swelling effects and a quixotic low-note riff, while Day recounts a Joycean tale in her inimitable vocal style... Impressive stuff." WeAreNoise
"Ep. Drom-d'reau is the latest offering from the timeless and utterly brilliant Cal Folger Day ... the short yet incredibly sweet 'Sorry, Lonely' plays my heartstrings ... Simply beautiful." G-Man
