7:30 pm - Catherine Feeny & Chris Johnedis Vinyl Release Concert
Catherine Feeny & Chris Johnedis Vinyl Release Concert
Acclaimed songwriter Catherine Feeny and jazz drummer Chris Johnedis celebrate the vinyl release of their first collaborative effort on Fluff & Gravy Records. Feeny’s quietly arresting vocals and classic pop songwriting against Johnedis’s R&B inflected polyryhthms, masterfully maximizes their tools — ukulele, voice, guitar and drums, and creates a universe of sound that is sparse and propulsive, yet playful, for their eponymous debut as a duo.
Also on the bill prog-and post-punk maestros Sama Dams and Portland multi-instrumentalist Like a Villain.
“Feeny’s songs are often those of an exile, her low key, quietly devastating delivery sounding somewhere between Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday…” -Paul Rhodes-The York Press.
Door 7:00pm. All Ages Show – Bar with I.D.
