Monday Jun 1st @ 9pm Glen David Andrews
Glen David Andrews In a city whose spirit world is as old as Mother Africa's children, Glen David Andrews, a native son of New Orleans, has made a compelling case for his own deliverance. Redemption (Louisiana Red Hot Records), Glen's critically acclaimed new release, is his balm after a very personal storm. It's about acceptance and forgiveness, about rebirth and renewal. "This is a record about my journey back from the living dead."
Born in the historic Treme neighborhood Glen and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, soaked up life's musical lessons by learning the history of the brass band tradition from iconic figures like Tuba Fats. Andrews says. "Jesus was born in a manger, I was born in a second line." He was blowing a joyful noise by the time he was 12 and practiced his musicianship and showmanship with the city's most energetic brass bands, from New Birth and L'il Rascals to ReBirth and Treme.

Sunday Jun 7th @ 9pm Kate Wakefield
Kate Wakefield A classically trained opera singer lost her mind, and went off the tracks to create a solo project like you've never seen before. Kate Wakefield hooks up her voice, and cello to amps and spins webs of haunting melodies. Wakefield bends genres incorporating elements of psychedelic folk, post punk, and new wave classical into her sound. Operatic voices are used sparingly as wild and unruly primitive cries.
Based out of Cincinnati, Wakefield has taken her local scene by storm playing city wide events such as "Best of Cincinnati" and "Best new bands" during her first year performing live. A full length album can be found online at katewakefield.bandcamp.com, and videos of live shows can be found on youtube. A new full length album is in the works, and will be released in August of 2015.
