Johnny Irion Album Release

Presented by Club Passim at Club Passim

Jun 27, 2018

Johnny Irion is a rocker in and out of time.  There’s something kind of timeless in the way he wrings out the sweetest melodies and deeper passions of both ‘60s Californian rock and Guthrie-era folk, and something so timely about the way he does it – there’s a reason Bernie Sanders asked him to sing at a rally in his sometimes-home of Santa Barbara. Best known for his folk explorations with his wife Sarah Lee Guthrie, including their recent Wassaic Way produced by Jeff Tweedy, and his latest rock venture with US ELEVATOR, which Will Hermes of Rolling Stone Magazine praised for its “songs that are hand crafted as lovingly as the jeans on the back of After the Goldrush,” Irion has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting artists across the folk-rock spectrum, from his uncannily Young-Nilsson-esque voice to his melodic and lyrical mettle. Irion has just…

She agreed to star in a six-episode arc of Louis C.K.’s F/X series Louie, Season 4, a performance which would earn her considerable critical praise. Eszter also improvised compositions, sang and played violin for the episodes which featured her performance. As soon as filming wrapped, Eszter returned to work on her album.

Jun 28, 2018

Robert Cray has been bridging the lines between blues, soul and R&B for the past four decades, with five Grammy wins and over 20 acclaimed albums. Growing up in the Northwest, Robert Cray listened to the gospel of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi, Bobby Bland’s soul, Jimi Hendrix’s rock guitar and the Beatles pop sounds. He would bring all of the influences into play throughout his career, but his teenage band was captivated by Southern Soul and the blues. “In the early days of the band we were getting back into O.V. Wright and paying attention to my favorite blues players; Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Albert King and especially Albert Collins,” Cray says.

The year was 1981 and The Jon Butcher Axis (Jon Butcher, Chris Martin & Derek Blevins) had taken the Boston music scene by storm. WBCN was playing their songs while the band performed to sold out audiences at iconic venues such as The Channel, The Paradise and others. Their big break came when the week after Christmas, they got the nod to open for the mighty J. Geils band on a short run of dates throughout the Northeast. A month later the Geils Band called again, this time with an invite to do the North American leg of the Freeze Frame tour, highlighted by three sold out Boston Garden shows (all while the band had no record deal and no booking agent). Join us on June 29 for a very special look at those years in the Boston club scene as JBA is joined, for the first time in decades,…

Inspired by divas’ extraordinary contributions to music, fashion, and the political and economic progress of women as the first career women in the West, DIVAS asks: what is the power of opera? Can women harness it to new ends? By Laura Neill With musical selections ranging from Purcell to Puccini Produced in collaboration with DIVA Museum

ROSIE HERRERA’s newest work, Make Believe, investigates religious upbringing and spiritual practices – how our introduction to various belief systems at an early age influences the ways in which we experience romantic love.

France, before the revolution.

Lee Mikeska Gardner helmed the play in Washington DC with an all-male cast. Bringing that concept to The Nora, notions of gender politics are skewed with the sexual, amoral, manipulative game envisioned through new eyes. Money, mayhem and men – see why Gardner’s production was hailed as "Gutsy… groundbreaking theater" by DCist. by Christopher Hampton Directed by Lee Mikeska Gardner Content warning: Full nudity, sexual content, violence, and a damn good sword fight.
