Thrust Club & Friends

14 Dimick St, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Erin Genett
Saturday, May 21 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Formed in 2012, Thrust Club is a garage dance party where everyone is invited — a kick-drum that lifts you out of your seat, crunchy guitar chords under a layer of keys that are sometimes smooth, sometimes ominous, and vocals that coo, scream, and everything in between.

Members are Sally Bunch (guitar), JC Climent (drums), Erin Genett (keys), and Bethany Leavey (vocals). All members volunteer at Girls Rock Campaign Boston, and believe in demonstrating and promoting girls and women to express themselves through music and other means.

Thrust Club will be joined by members of Leafcutter and Adam PC.

The Black Souls

9 Morgan St, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Kim Ackland
Saturday, May 21 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

We'll be doing some songs at the tail end - around 3:30! The Black Souls are the newest project of well known Boston frontman Cam Ackland of the Prime Movers, Voodoo Dolls and Port Charles Quintet. Playing a mix of classic r&b, garage and soul, Cam and his wife Kim Ackland trade off on vocals interspersed with wailing harp. Rounding out the group: the twin guitar stylings of Tony Kaczynski and George Perkins, the pounding bass of Stow Kelner, and the primal drumbeats of Matt Burns.
