Oh hells yeah! the Homoground holiday party show is coming up on December 17th! I’m playing along with the funtimes brigade AKA Mal Blum and Gregory And The Hawk at our pal’s brand new venue Friends and Lovers in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. I got to design this flyer too.
As the official invite says - bring your strange friends, or come to meet friendly strangers.
December 17th, 2013 at night - probably 8ish.
Kid In The Attic, Mal Blum, Gregory And The Hawk @ Friends and Lovers, 641 Classon Ave, Brooklyn, NY.
I’ll be playing this fun show next week!

Charlene Kaye is a New York-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Growing up in Hawaii, Kaye developed a background in classical music that creeps into her glam-inflected, high-energy style, with Kaye shredding on guitar and singing her heart out over a tight double-drum and keyboard foundation. Extensive touring, festivals showcases, and praise from major entertainment and news sources all point to big things.
Featured song: “I Want Your Gold”

Animal Love, the latest release by Charlene Kaye, is now available.
Norwegian songwriter Susanne Sundfor exists at the intersection of two worlds (as cleverly depicted in the video for her single “The White Foxes”) — the ancient, natural world of forests and ruins, and the modern, manufactured world of technology, all covered in snow. This is true both thematically, as her songs are often lyrically cold and dark with subtle overtones of brilliant warmth, as well as sonically, blending lush piano elements with the more mechanical, almost industrial elements of pop music. Susanne stopped by to play some solo tunes and talk about the therapy of making art and how her own style developed.
Featured song: “The Silicone Veil”

The music of Xenia Rubinos is uniquely dependent on beats in a big way; drummer Marco Buccelli contributes much more than just your standard percussion, crafting entire soundscapes from a mish-mash of drums and effects, tirelessly modified and honed into one of the most impressive music-making machines we’ve had the pleasure of seeing in action. Xenia, herself, is a force to be reckoned with, culling enormous vocal power into dramatic tunes that she propels through her keyboard. Somehow, these two have tapped into a deep well of energy and passion that pleasantly comes across in every move they make.
Featured Song: “Help”
Xenia Rubinos’ Magic Trix is available now from Ba Da Bing Records.
