Combining a deep fascination for the American story song and brutal lyrical prose with a stunningly thematic and innovative soundscape, the Adam Glasseye & INSECT FABLE create music that is hysterical and always intense. http://reverendglasseye.bandcamp.com/album/the-insect-fable

Tigerman WOAH has been described as Appalachian mountain folk/bluegrass influenced punk rock with the occasional hip-hop freak-out. http://www.tigermanwoah.com

Reminiscent of an era when Clinton was president and the internet was dial-up, the Sookie St. James combine vocal harmonies with guitar, keyboard & catchy beats. https://sookieband.bandcamp.com/releases

Tail

109 College Ave, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Chris Yang
Saturday, May 16 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Take four people from Louisiana, Vermont, Connecticut, and Sweden.
Add equal parts of folk, old-fashioned country, with a pinch
of bluegrass and gospel. Put it into a pot of cover tunes from
the last century. Spice with plenty of harmony vocals and add an
original or two. That's Tail - rootsy, acoustic, and pleasant.

What to expect? Songs of Neil Young, Beatles, Dylan, Traditionals,
Steve Earl, Grateful Dead, Pixies, 80’s pop\70s hits, originals.
All presented with a very personal touch.
