Iris Lune *EP release show* with Lenii and Puck - C'mon Everybody
June 22, 2019 - Brooklyn

IRIS LUNE Through the vessel of Iris Lune, beguiling front woman Ella Joy Meir aims to extinguish the veil between art and life. Gripping, downcast, lucid, the volcanic talent's soul-stirring alto penetrates deeply — leaving a gossamer sheen that fully envelops the senses. A bonafide triple threat, Meir is in constant flex as a lead vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, whose alluring Iris Lune cloak could rival any of her own art-pop heroines Florence Welch, Bjork, Mitski and Joni Mitchell. With two EPs — 2015's Iris Lune and 2017's Lost In Chatter — under her belt, the queer upstart has netted over a million streams across platforms to date, and has become a local live force, selling out shows in her newly minted home base of New York City. LENII Lenii is a singer, music producer and multi-instrumentalist from Cork, Ireland. A vegetarian who sneaks a piece of duck now and then. Frequently cries and laughs at the same time. Says "plug out" instead of "unplug". Worries about being basic. PUCK A daughter of Pacific Northwest DIY, formal music school, the New York scene, and sideman work as a pianist, Puck is the exciting new project from pianist-artist Kaley... (read more)

Carnegie Hall Citywide: Birds of Chicago - Snug Harbor Cultural Center
June 22, 2019 - Staten Island

Birds of Chicago—husband-and-wife team JT Nero and Allison Russell—has been making soulful, heartfelt music since 2012. In Nero's words, the duo's self-described "secular gospel" songs open up "channels of love." Birds of Chicago's voices—Nero's gritty and Russell's smooth—blend beautifully and recall country blues, doo-wop, and classic soul. The pair's newest album, Love in Wartime, is balm for the nation's troubled times, offering messages of trust and understanding that are also danceable.
