Free Your Creative Butterflies - Intuitive Painting Workshop
Intuitive Painting Workshop: Free Your Creative Butterflies Unleashing and using your creative genie to color your life any way you want A three-hour workshop for both creatives and creative wannabes. Why does creativity become confined? Maybe someone once told you that you were not talented, you were not good enough to create. Perhaps someone criticized your creation, or, what’s worse, criticized YOU. You believed it, and it slowly became your reality. You didn’t try creating again, or if you did, you remained dissatisfied with the result because of the wounded self-image. Today, you have butterflies in your stomach when creativity is mentioned.  Turn those upsetting butterflies into creative ones through Intuitive Painting! I will guide you on the journey to make it fun and light for you. AS A PARTICIPANT YOU WILL notice negative thought patterns that might be in the way of your creating, untie the ribbon and release your creative genie who opens the door to new things for you, start overwriting the negative thought patterns and become the artist of your life, tap into your limitless creative source to start creating the life you want.  All art supplies are provided and no painting experience is needed.  WHAT DO OTHERS SAY? “This is a wonderful workshop for artists looking for a different perspective, It’s expressive, as art should be, but free from harsh judgments or expectations.” Abbey "It’s really nice to be truly creative and let your instincts guide you while you paint rather than a structured idea. It’s very calming and nice because no one is judging you and you can paint whatever you please. You get to let a piece of your inner self that no one usually sees into the physical world." Lyssa “Inspiring, uplifting, relaxing. Revealing one's inner self in a very positive, safe place.” Mary  FAQs   Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Feel free to contact Viktoria by calling 413-717-1058 or sending an email to viktoriaseavey@me.com.

Hatrack Gallagher at the Homegrown Coffeehouse
Everything that Patrick "Hatrack" Gallagher plays -- the feeling and heart of every performance he gives -- is shaped and informed by the blues. (He also boasts one of the best nicknames in music.) He learned his craft at the knees of Peg Leg Sam Jackson, Sonny Terry, Hammie Nixon, Furry Lewis , Bukka White, Roosevelt Sykes, Robert Pete Williams and others. He knows how it's supposed to be done, and he brings it all with him when he plays. The it is blues harmonica blues harp to be precise and we havent heard anyone better since Paul Butterfield was around to pound out Chicago-style blues. For this show, Hatrack brings along his three friends -- jazz pianist and regular side man Ric Mauré, with his fabulous blues chops, Jim Guttmann, founder of Bessarabian Breakdown, on bass, and Forrest Padgett on percussion.

Andy Newton) www.lovelovebostonband.com https://www.facebook.com/werdevotion Who better to represent the night before Valentine's Day than the couple centric bands Love Love and Devotion? Love Love's Chris Toppin and Jefferson Davis Riordan deliver a lush, often darkly passionate mix of vocal-and-lyric-driven '60s and '70s-inspired rock while Devotions Andrea Gillis & Marc Pinansky - Power couple, Rock Royalty have made a name for themselves over recent years as an inseparable duo more akin to Kenny & Dolly and Donny & Roberta. You won't want to miss this night! LOVE LOVE With their debut album released in late 2015, LOVE LOVE is the sound of two extremely talented singer-songwriters weaving roots and rock with psych-country and soul. LOVE LOVE stands out for their catchy songs, complex lyrics, and tight harmonies. Chris Toppin and Jefferson Davis Riordan deliver a lush, often darkly passionate mix of vocal-and-lyric-driven '60s and '70s-inspired rock, with two lead voices blending beautifully. With inspirations from The Pixies to Yes, Neil Young to George Jones and rotating band members, the variegation mirrors LOVE LOVE's ethos: Take from everywhere and everything, but make it your own. DEVOTION People like to bestow any number of phrases upon Andrea Gillis & Marc Pinansky - Power couple, Rock Royalty, but in spite of their legacies with The Andrea Gillis Band and Township, they have made a name for themselves over recent years as an inseparable duo more akin to Kenny & Dolly and Donny & Roberta. Drawing from their vast catalog of original songs and cherry-picked covers, Andrea & Marc touch all bases from soul to country to blues and beyond. Good music, stripped down, in harmony and delivered with the humor and charm that make their intimate sets feel timeless and classic. MORE ON LOVE LOVE ... "This eponymous album ranks among the most auspicious debuts I've heard so far this year." Jeff Berger, No Depression "Both Toppin and Riordan have serious writing chops, but it's when they tag team vocals that they shine brightestthe results are astounding." Jed Gottlieb, The Boston Herald "This release is truly sui generis (unique). Highly recommended." Francis DiMenno, The Noise

THE SUN PARADE & THE CONGRESS
Friday 2/12 - A fabulous co-bill featuring THE SUN PARADE THE CONGRESS $10 advance / $12 at the door 8:30 doors / 9:00 show (The Congress @ 9PM / The Sun Parade @10:30) www.thecongressmusic.org www.thesunparade.com Western Massachusetts' rising grunge-pop artists The Sun Parade -- "crafting the kinds of traditional guitar-pop songs that people might still be singing 50 years down the road (National Public Radio)" -- are touring four cities in New York and New England in February to introduce friends and fans at some of their favorite venues to their new Southern 'mates, The Congress. The Congress is a Virginia-based four-piece, equal parts rock & roll, old-school soul, and outlaw country. Founded by Scott Lane and Jonathan Meadows, the band falls under the influence of the diverse music of their hometown of Richmond, where the spirit of jazz, prevails with infusions of r&b, neo-soul, punk rock, and Appalachian harmonies. The Congress has been living in Denver, Colorado for several years but moved back to Richmond in 2015 and is touring on the East Coast and recording a second LP. The Congress and The Sun Parade have come together as part of the unofficial alumni association of rising bands who've toured in support of the national pop-music phenomenon Lake Street Dive. Lake Street Dive once said, of The Sun Parade: They smack your buttocks with the utmost loving intent and rock n roll tenderness." Here's The Congress on "Take It To The Limit" with Lake Street Dive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSdJ8KH1X_w&feature=youtu.be The two bands' first show together is Thursday, February 4th in The Sun Parade's hometown, Northampton, Massachusetts, and presented by Signature Sounds.

Friday, February 12th is Rockwood Music Hall, the first venue The Sun Parade played in New York City and recent "Memory Lane" tour venue for Lake Street Dive. February 13th is the Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock. The Sun Parade calls its music "grunge-soaked powerpop" and lists, among its influences, The Beatles, Dr. Dog, Elliot Smith, Neil Young, Tame Impala, Lee "Scratch" Perry and bluegrass brother harmonies. The title track of The Sun Parade's recent EP Heart's Out was chosen for National Public Radio's Songs We Love.

THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND with very special guest LISA BASTONI
Wednesday 2/10 - THE NEW SEASON ROLLS ALONG STARRING THE LEGENDARY... DENNIS BRENNAN BAND (w/ Duke Levine, Richard Gates and Andy Plaisted) with special guest: LISA BASTONI $12 advance / $15 at the door 8:30 doors / 9:00 show (Dennis Brennan Band at 9:00 and 11:00 / Guest at 10:15) www.dennisbrennan.com www.lisabastoni.com The Dennis Brennan Band featuring Duke Levine, Richard Gates and Andy Plaisted subbing tonight for Billy Beard hit the new year and the first set with a new theme - as yet to be decided but it will most likely cull songs from recent themes including Iodine Brothers, Bakersfield, Memphis and Jack In The Pulpit. Then stay tuned for the terrific songstress Lisa Bastoni The Dennis Brennan Band returns for the fall / winter season of Wednesday nights at The Lizard Lounge with the usual cast of incredible musicians but a few new new surprises! Look for frequent themes woven into their sets such as cities; Memphis, New Orleans, Los Angeles... or a style, Country, Knucklehead Rock, Garage...or a particular songwriter/s, Dan Penn, Goffin/King, Arthur Alexander, Ray Davies, Doug Sahm. In addition the band will mine much of the back catalog mixed in with the new material from the upcoming album later in 2016. As the band did last season, special guests open the second set each week with a short set. DENNIS BRENNAN.... To the uninitiated, Brennan could be considered Boston's own Leonard Cohen or Elvis Costello. His songwriting is respected by critics and musicians alike. Not only adept with the pen, Dennis Brennan is a highly accomplished performer and is known for his ability to span musical genres, styles, and era's with ease. His emotive and passionate voice is comfortable tackling classic country and R& B as well classic jazz, rock and blues. But it's really Brennan's originals that have set him apart. The Chicago Sun Times described him as "A rootsy, hard-edged rocker with the barroom soul of the pre-Woodstock Graham Parker and the unsparing insight of a working class poet." It's a fitting description if ever there was one. To the initiated faithful who attend every show, Dennis and his band (which includes guitarists Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, Lyle Brewer, and Ian Kennedy on any given night along with the rhythm section of Billy Beard and Richard Gates) have etched so many indelible magical moments on the local collective conscious that they return each week to see what will happen next. TONIGHT'S GUEST: LISA BASTONI Lisa Bastoni has been writing and performing her songs since she was a teenager, and released her first living-room album in 2002. A popular Boston street performer and traveling singer-songwriter, Lisa took a long hiatus from music as other areas of her life took the front burner: teaching, marriage, parenthood. In timed carved out from her life as a busy stay-at-home mom of two very small children, Lisa has recently kick-started her return to music with a stunning new batch of songs. A new album is planned for 2016. I would call Lisa a sweetheart of our local music scene... and she most certainly is, but her uncanny ability to slip into the deepest and most vulnerable places of your heart to tell her stories is what makes her songwriting so special."--Tom Bianchi, 24Hour Music More on DENNIS BRENNAN... Music is in his blood and it shows not just in the impressive body of work, but in the workman like attitude he brings to the stage each and every time. It's what inspired J. Geils frontman Peter Wolf to remark, "The biggest challenge for any artist is to sustain and keep growing. Many musicians who stick with it can fall into a trap of becoming parodies of themselves. Dennis has always kept maturing, which is one of the hardest challenges, and that's why I always enjoy checking him out." It's also why band mate Duke Levine says "Dennis is such a strong performer, he never phones it in, and that means everything to a sideman. If Dennis is giving something that is amazing, then you'd better give it, too." Or as guitarist Kevin Barry says, "I have never played with Dennis when he gives less than 100 percent." Dennis Brennan is a local treasure and he continues to impress and evolve. Do not miss your chance to see him... every Wednesday night right in your own back yard. The Dennis Brennan Band performs two sets every Wednesday night starting at 9:00 (8:30 doors). Ticket price may vary from week to week.

Saint Mark's Gospel
Last season, New York audiences "sat enthralled" as actor-musician Christopher Johnson premiered his one-man performance of the Gospel According to St. Mark -- one of the first there since Alec McCowen's legendary production nearly twenty years ago -- and called it... "A truly great show. The King James language felt utterly current, like a conversation one could easily have oneself, or overhear on the street. The character of Jesus came through in a way he hasn't to me before -- powerful and smarter than everyone around him, but caring and profound, and vulnerable truly a unique personage. A revelatory evening." "Really incredible -- what a wonderful actor! I encourage anyone of any faith to go see this excellent performance." "Wonderfully human and compelling." "An unforgettable performance. We loved Gerald Cohen's music as well. Bravo!" "Simple, elegant, amazing. So Jewish and yet so Christian." "What a wonderful performance! Very moving, and very direct in its way of relating the listener/viewer to the text. Great job!" "Illuminating and profound. I know it brought Jesus's humanity closer to our hearts." "The power of this evening moves me still. It made the words fly from the page and brought the sacred to earthy life." Now this unique production comes to the Cape Cod area, on March 13, 2016, at 3:00 p.m., at the Church of the Messiah, 22 Church Street, Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Staging Mark's text as an after-dinner entertainment, the form in which it was most likely published in first-century Rome, Johnson presents the earliest gospel as the urgent "good news" it was meant to be: a thundering yarn, with unforgettable characters, lightning dialogue, quips, jokes, sarcasm, barnyard humor, and a hero who may be God but is most assuredly man. MARK AND HIS GOSPEL While nothing about the four canonic gospels is certain, internal evidence suggests that they all were composed or compiled between about 65 and 100 C.E., and that Mark preceded the rest. Mark himself is unknown to us (the anonymous gospel-writers were assigned names sometime in the second century, for reasons that remain unclear), but his book is palpably the work of a single writer with a powerful narrative style and a real gift for dialogue. Whoever Mark was, he was plainly not from Palestine--his geography is impossible, and he makes statements about local practices that contradict all known evidence--and he seems to have been writing for an audience composed largely of Gentiles, to whom his frequent asides translating Hebrew terms and explaining Jewish rituals and customs are obviously directed. All this, together with a prevalence of anecdotes and dialogue that must have come ultimately from the apostle Peter, suggests an association with Rome at a time when the essential task of Christians was still to "get out the story." And Mark certainly knew how to spin a tale, plunging headlong into the heart of the matter and never letting up--no songs, no poetry, no sermons, little theology, not even a confirmed Resurrection--ending, as abruptly as he began, on a note of terror and doubt. By the end of the second century, several other writers had tried to round out Mark's story and to give it some kind of "happy ending," like those in Luke and Matthew. Some of these interventions are better than others, but none has Mark's drive and clarity, and the standard ending (16:9-20) is brutally at odds with Jesus's teachings in the rest of the book. This production omits the standard ending and replaces it with Luke 24, which more nearly agrees with Mark in style and content. It is a measure of Mark's powers as a writer, and of the skills of his seventeenth-century translators (the production uses the King James Version of 1611), that fewer than two-dozen words have had to be added--generally in order to clarify shifts from narration to direct speech, and to indicate embedded quotes--for the work to become instantly comprehensible to a modern audience. THE PERFORMER Christopher Johnson trained as an actor at Boston University, and appeared in a wide variety of classical and modern plays at Harvard University's Loeb Drama Center, Center Stage (Baltimore), and the Playwrights' Laboratory at Tanglewood. He received musical training at the Manhattan School of Music, Queens College, and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and has played, conducted, and led workshops and reading-sessions throughout the United States and in Britain. A committed reader-aloud, he credits his children with inadvertently leading him to St. Mark, and to the performance-project of his life.

An Evening with These Wild Plains & Avi Jacob
If you closed your eyes and listened to These Wild Plains you would never, in a million years, expect this sound to come from a Boston band. And that's when you realize the songs, the music and the feeling are a gift - and you never, ever know when life will surprise you. This is a group with boundless country rock charisma. It was only a year after the band played their first live show to a sold out Great Scott in Allston, MA, that Esquire Magazine featured them in their 15 Bands to Watch List last year. They've been busy since on the live front as go-to support in Boston for national touring bands like The Whigs, Futurebirds and The Sadies. They've made the most of those opportunities and have earned some fantastic looks from festivals and shows around the country: Mile of Music (Appleton, WI), SXSW (Austin, TX), The Outlaw Roadshow in New York and just announced: Stagecoach 2016 (Indio, CA) in the Spring. Americana artists Avi Jacob expresses the old soul of east coast America, twisting melodies from its' pitfalls and triumphs. Avi released his debut LP "So Hard To Reach You" in early 2014 on Whitehaus Family Records. Tracks on the albums revolve around the singer's troubled six-year relationship with the mother of his first-born son. ATWOOD'S IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING. THIS IS A 21+ SHOW!
