Mary P & the Friendly Friends

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Mary P & the Friendly Friends: Each year different friends join Mary on her "forever home" porch on Morrison Ave. This year friends from across the country contributed to a few collaborative videos that we hope will convey some of the spirit, spontaneity, and joyfulness of Porchfest. The set contains mainly sing-along favorites that are all kid-friendly. (It’s generally the stuff you might sing in the woods around a campfire.)

This event is BYO: hula hoops, chalk, bubbles, and lemonade. We’ll definitely be bringing bubbles. 
Listen anytime by following the FB link. See you in the future!

Phil and the Flying Leap

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Phil and the Flying Leap re-weaves the tapestry of Western popular song, marrying early jazz, French chanson, Golden-Age musical theater, and bluesy, radio-ready Americana. Songwriter Phil Berman's lyrics usher the Great American Songbook into our hyper/dis-connected 21st century reality, crafting joyfully queer songs to navigate, question, and affirm the human heart in an increasingly absurd digital world.

We'll be releasing a brand-spankin', socially-distant, multiple-instrumentationalized NEW song off our upcoming NEW record just for you, Somerville! We'll be premiering it on our Facebook page at 4pm, tune on in!

Band Description: 

Kids Luv Cops - Emotionally charged folk-punk about the road to self improvement. We bring the kazoos and maracas, you bring the flair.

Lonesome Joan - Open-tuned post-folk sadcore. Come for delicate songs about triumphant isolation, stay for personal mythologies of springtime crush hell and trivia about trees.

Pizzafish - A spin-off of I'm Doing Okay. How Are You? where the songs are supposed to be about joy but end up actually being about resilience. Now with 100% more whammy bar.

Suburban Adventure - Fenn from The Baja Blasters playing sad songs for burrito lovers. Music for huge fans of both the mall and 2004.

The Hello Stranger

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

The Hello Stranger is a recording and performing artist who works in a variety of styles. In some moments he is a futurist-folk singer, writing stripped down songs and bare melodies. At other times he plays a bubbly character channeling energetic funk and soul rhythms. At even other times, he is an introspective computer producer writing intricate electronic prog-pop. The Stranger will happily play in whichever time zone.
