Hieronymus Bogs, The Crawdiddies & Jon Lewis Band ft. 3HB

Doors Open: 8pm / Event Starts: 9pm
9pm - Hieronymus Bogs “Eccentric Alt-folk with  Visionary Tendencies”… Hieronymus Bogs is a one man troupe whose performances embrace the ties between music, poetry and art. The bearded Bogs, garbed in self-fashioned regalia, is known for imparting live shows with poetic recitals, looped sounds and short vignettes that veer off the stage. With songs like, “The Infinite Possibilities of Universal Love” and “Death Is Dead”, Bogs' voice and off-kilter approach to songwriting is reminiscent of artists like George Harrison (The Beatles) and Syd Barret (Pink Floyd) while remaining clearly Folk based. Accompanied by subtle banjo, sleigh bell percussion and his trademark dangling bells, Bogs allows his words and distinct voice to be the focus of his songs, while his recitations and actions remystify what has often in performance become habit. Known primarily as frontman/songwriter for Psych-folk band, BOGS VISIONARY ORCHESTRA, Hieronymus Bogs has performed at many public institutions including the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC), and a plethora of clubs & cafes scattered across the country. His song, “Everybody's Broken” was included in Asthmatic Kitty's 'MEWS TOO” compilation, along with Indie-folk luminaries, Sufjan Stevens, Brother Danielson, & My Brightest Diamond. http://www.hieronymusbogs.com   9:45pm - The Crawdiddies The Crawdiddies are a family of musicians on a mission.  The goal?  To find your heart string that has the resonant frequency of your booty and pluck it! And pluck they do.  Using traditional acoustic instruments, the Crawdiddies conjure an exciting musical experience drawing from troves of American roots music including Delta Blues, Appalachian Old-Time, Bluegrass, and R&B.  On stage or around the fire.  Close harmonies over bluesy grooves. http://www.thecrawdiddies.com     11pm - Jon Lewis Band “Jon Lewis has tapped into something really great on "In Disguise," his new album: a real emotional connection and sincerity. A singer-songwriter, Lewis doesn't hide behind his guitar, but seems to be having a genuine conversation with the listener — there's a lot of his own soul pumped into the music.” Jake Clapp - City Newspaper   “Lewis has mastered the art of the singer-songwriter genre through writing heartfelt, confessional songs with widespread appeal.” Leah Creary - Rochester City Newspaper   http://www.reverbnation.com/jonlewismusic

9PM - SPROCKET - https://www.facebook.com/SprocketNYC This is the Sprocket you are looking for! Original music from Brooklyn. Sprocket was formed in August of 2011. Sprocket likes to rock! 11PM - HAEWA - https://www.facebook.com/haewa.music Haewa was formed in late 2011 in Rochester, New York. From deep pychedelia to funk and more, they create pulsating grooves which are complimented by textural blankets of ambience. These energetic and at times meditative improvisations lead you in and out of songs, both instrumental and lyrical. No two shows will ever be the same, taking audiences on journeys through landscapes of sound. The tone to the music is entirely organic, focusing on the human interpretation of guitar, bass and drum set, with small touches of subtle electronics (synthesizer, pedals and drum pad) to help deepen the collective array of sounds between the three members. With these tools, Ben Chilbert, Collin Jones and Riley Dichairo successfully transport the listener to a brand new sonic dimension. With the release of their debut album “Deadwet Soundwaves” in November of 2012, Haewa clearly displayed their clean studio sound and ear for detail in a cohesive musical experience that flows from beginning to end.

Come share your music at what has been described by many as the hottest open mic night in town! (2012 CITY choice awards - Best Open Mic) Each performer is allowed two songs. Performers that don't use "songs" (comedians, poets, improvisational music, etc) are allowed up to eight minutes for their set. Sign up sheet goes out about an hour or so before open mic begins, and order is determined on a first come/first serve basis. First person to sign up gets an extra song! WE PROVIDE: The PA system (mics, speakers, etc), guitar cables, an old beat-up piano, a host/sound engineer. Oftentimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, guitar/bass amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own instruments! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). Though it is not recommended, we will allow a full band to play as long as the musicians are respectful of others time and space. If you are a drummer, it is suggested that you bring in your drums before open mic begins (8:30) and set them up off to the side as to make for a speedy transition and not disrupt others' performances. Open mic begins around 8:30pm and goes until the night dies down (usually 11:00-11:30ish). Any other questions can be emailed to the show's host Willy O'Riley at willyoriley@lovincup.com.

Doors Open: 7pm / Event Starts: 8pm
TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLINE!!! THIS SHOW IS EXPECTED TO SELL OUT SO PURCHASING IN ADVANCE IS RECOMMENDED   Touring across the country in support of their new album "DUNES", produced by Tim Goldsworthy (DFA, The Rapture, Hercules & Love Affair and Cut Copy). Gardens & Villa make a stop in Rochester to play lovin' cup! Members Adam Rasmussen, Chris Lynch, Dusty Ineman, Levi Hayden and Shane McKillop traversed across the winding roads and frigid tundra of Benton Harbor, MI, stopping only when they found its highest point. Their bodies worked with fervor as they summited an expanse of snow-covered sand dunes. The view at the top left them breathless. Here was the great wide world, in sharp contrast to their cloistered recording haze; with the ice crunching beneath their feet, they saw Lake Michigan, stretching across the distant horizon, simultaneously reminding them of home as well as the tyranny of that distance. Dunes takes both album title and reinvigoration from this scene — but beneath the immediate lies a milieu of influences: random conversations with strangers, hundreds of VHS movies, British tea rituals, and explorations of consciousness and meditative focus. Opposing methodologies between band members make for wonderful tension in songs about the importance of isolation as well as connection, on appreciating the beauty of analog. The band's vibrant rhythms, fluttering flute melodies, and pulsing synth lines now intersect with more nuance than ever before. In a single stroke on standout "Bullet Train," G&V gives an eerie artificiality to Lynch's flute and embues Rasmussen's synth bassline all the physicality of played PVC piping, flipping the physical and digital. At different points, the record recalls the jerky, blissful funk of Prince ("Bullet Train") and the cold-wave of Depeche Mode ("Colony Glen" and "Thunder Glove") in its outwards-facing dance jams, while piano-heavy tracks ("Chrysanthemums" and "Minnesota") feature complementary melodies that inspire introspection. With the expert assistance of Goldsworthy, Dunes is a record abundant with contrasts, that shares a clear and evocative vision of where Gardens & Villa's members have traveled, what they've learned, and what lies ahead.   See more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhm-7olas2A

Doors Open: 7pm / Event Starts: 8pm
Dave Liebman’s new group looks towards the present generation of jazz musicians who have been schooled in conservatory and university settings.  Lieb is continuing the time tested tradition of master/apprentice as he experienced in the 1970′s with drummer Elvin Jones and Miles Davis, by reaching across generations to teach and learn from them. “EXPANSIONS” features the up and coming pianist Bobby Avey, reedman Matt Vashlishan, drummer Alex Ritz and a continuation of Lieb’s long relationship with bassist Tony Marino. Conceptually, the repertoire traverses elements of free jazz and re-arrangements of standards all infused with the complex time signatures and harmonies being explored by the new jazz artists of our time. The first recording will be released in 2014…”Samsara” (Whaling City Sound). DAVE LIEBMAN (soprano saxophone, wooden flute) David Liebman’s career has spanned over four decades, beginning in the 1970s as the saxophone/flautist in both the Elvin Jones and Miles Davis Groups, continuing as a leader since. He has played on nearly three hundred recordings with over one hundred under his leadership or co-leadership.  In jazz education he is a renowned lecturer and author of several milestone books: Self Portrait Of A Jazz Artist, A Chromatic Approach To Jazz Harmony And Melody, Developing A Personal Saxophone Sound, translated into several languages, in addition to teaching DVDs, journalistic contributions to periodicals and published chamber music. He is the Founder and Artistic Director of the International Association of Schools of Jazz (IASJ) existing since 1989. Awards include (Jazz Educators Network Legend of Jazz (2013); National Endowment of the Arts Masters of Jazz (2011); the Order of Arts and Letters (France 2009); Jazz Journalist’s award for Soprano Saxophone (2007); Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Solo (1998); Honorary Doctorate from the Sibelius Academy (Finland-1997). He is currently Artist in Residence at the Manhattan School of Music and has consistently placed in the top three places for Soprano Saxophone in the Downbeat Critic’s Poll since 1973, winning first place in both the Downbeat and Jazz Times Critic’s Poll in both 2011 and 2012. (Complete bio at davidliebman.com) BOBBY AVEY (piano/keyboards) Praised by the New Yorker Magazine as a “ young pianist of invention and refinement,” Bobby Avey has established himself as an emerging star in the jazz community. He graduated from Purchase University of Music Summa Cum Laude in 2007 after having collaborated with Dave Liebman on a recording “Vienna Dialogues” (Zoho Records released 2006) featuring adaptations from the Classical and Romantic era. In 2011 Bobby won the Thelonius Monk Competition for original composition featured on his first recording as a leader “A New Face” lauded by the NY TImes as a “promising debut.” His follow up, a solo recording titled “Be Not So Long To Speak”(Minsi Ridge) was praised Ben Ratliff in tthe Times:”…a solo piano record of mystery, patience, imagination and clear design…keep an eye on this guy.” Most recently, Avey received the New Jazz Works Commissioning and Ensemble Development Grant from Chamber Music America which enabled him to travel to Haiti to study the Vodou tradition. This lead to the creation of an hour-long suite grounded in rhythms found in their traditional drumming. The suite entitled “Authority Melts From Me” pays homage to the Haitian Revolution and was premiered and recorded in 2012 featuring another rising voice on saxophone, Miguel Zenon along with guitarist Ben Monder. The New York Times wrote about Avey’s Symphony Space concert of the Haitan material:”Avey isn’t laying claim to an ancestral heritage, but rather digging into a tradition outside his experience, with scholarly enthusiasm.” MATT VASHLISHAN (alto sax, flute, clarinet, EWI) Matt Vashlishan is currently located in the New York area where he is actively developing his reputation as a freelance musician and educator. He holds a DMA in Saxophone Performance from the University of Miami, a Master’s degree in Performance from William Paterson University and a Bachelor’s of Jazz Performance from the Eastman School of Music. Matt has performed with numerous artists such as Phil Woods, Bruce Hornsby, Patty Austin, Nester Torres, and many others. His large ensemble credentials include the Phil Woods Big Band, Michael Feinstein Orchestra, the Charles Tolliver Big Band and Larry Rosen’s “Jazz Roots” including solo and ensemble work on “An Evening with Dave Grusin.” Matt’s discography includes two CD’s released under his own leadership as well as sideman work in a variety of styles. He has co-authored and collaborated with David Liebman on several publications available through Jamey Aebersold Jazz. ALEX RITZ (drums/frame drum) Alex started quite young, already sitting in and performing in the Hudson Valley area where he lived not far from New York City at age twelve. He went on to attend both the Oberlin Conservatory and College graduating with degrees in Music and Mathematics. While there he studied with jazz drum legend Billy Hart (long time associate of Dave Liebman in the groups “Saxophone Summit” and “Quest”) and multi-percussionist Jamey Hadda (who was a member of the Dave Liebman Group for ten years). After graduating Ritz spent two years living in Shanghai, China, performing in styles ranging from jazz to Afrobeat including collaborations with players of traditional Chinese instruments. During this time, he appeared at festivals and venues in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Switzerland. Now based in Brooklyn, New York, Ritz has been playing with a wide array of artists and ensembles.  He has been featured on several recordings, including Rafiq Bhatia’sYes It Will, which was listed among the Best Jazz Albums of 2012 by critics from The New York Times, Village Voice and Jazz Times. Modern Drummer magazine observes that Ritz’s “pleasantly disorienting” playing “keeps the music aloft,” and the New York Times speaks of his “drum rhythms in broken-field runs with stuttering delays before downstrokes.” TONY MARINO (electric and acoustic bass) Tony is the rock of the new group with decades of experience in music ranging from folk, rock, country, bebop to free jazz. His playing credits range from Mose Allison to Phil Woods while his association with Dave Liebman extends well over twenty years and dozens of recordings and tours worldwide. As Lieb describes Tony: “I may have said three words to Tony about how or what to play in these years. He is the most instinctive musician I have known…something realized by all who hear him.” - See more at: http://www.bopshop.com/event/expansions-the-dave-liebman-group/#sthash.HtTgm2sW.dpuf

ORDER YOUR TICKETS ONLINE AT THE TICKETWEB LINK ABOVE!   RYAN MONTBLEAU Songs for Ryan Montbleau typically need to simmer. In his 10-year career this gifted singer and his limber band have built their catalog the old-fashioned way, by introducing new songs to their live set, then bending and shaping them over dozens of performances before committing a definitive version to the hard drive. For that and many other reasons, Montbleau's latest album, For Higher, is quite literally a departure. Well-established out of his home base in the Northeast, the singer threw himself into New Orleans, where everything is slow-cooked, for a few fast-moving days — and whipped up an instant delicacy. A few of the cuts on the new album — the playful stomp of “Deadset” or “Head Above Water,” freshly peppered with horns — were already part of the Ryan Montbleau Band's ever-growing repertoire. But the majority, including four handpicked cover tunes — stone soul nuggets from Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, the late Muscle Shoals guitarist Eddie Hinton and more — came together spontaneously, with little prepwork. It was a feel thing, with Montbleau putting heads together with fellow music head Ben Ellman of New Orleans flag-bearers Galactic. The singer and songwriter first eased his way into the city when he was invited to contribute songs to Backatown, the breakthrough album of favorite son Trombone Shorty. That went so well, Montbleau co-wrote two more songs for Shorty's recent follow-up, “For True.” When the crowds are dancing, the band digs deeper in the pocket. But Montbleau, who still performs solo, is constantly looking to strike a balance between the contagious energy of moving bodies and making a closer connection. “You can still dance and have a good time,” he says of his fast-spreading fan base, “but I love when you listen.” http://www.ryanmontbleau.com   Tall Heights opens the show at 7pm! In the summer of 2010, Tim Harrington and Paul Wright were playing for spare change in Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In three fast years, Tall Heights has put on hundreds of shows, headlining packed listening rooms across the country, touring down to Austin, TX to showcase at South By Southwest Music Festival, and sharing stages with national acts like David Wilcox, Ryan Montbleau, Andrew Belle, Lori McKenna, and many more. For the duo’s debut full-length effort, Man of Stone (May, 2013), Tall Heights hit the home studio, sinking deeper into the vast world they’ve meticulously built for two. The title track and first single, Man of Stone, recalls a time when cavemen documented day-to-day existence on the walls of their stone-sheltered dwellings. “Emblems of cavemen they taught me / the importance of typing in bold,” contextualizes the rest of the record and challenges a careful listener to view each song as a vital documentation of what is both banal and extraordinary. The record exists in a fire-lit, shadowy space for their growing army of fans to inhabit. After two powerful EPs, there has been a growing cry for more from these young artists, and Tall Heightsdelivers with an LP of grand vision and scale. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u1DBwio17s
