We are excited to host our first concert here at "Area 51!" Amy Kucharik & Friends will be the house band, joined by special guests River Sister (Portsmouth, NH) making their Somerville debut!
We'll start with a potluck around 6:30pm; bringing a dish or yummy snack to share is highly encouraged but not required. BYOB. Music begins around 7:30pm and will include sets by Amy and by River Sister, ending around 10pm. Weather permitting, we'll be outdoors, so consider bringing a lawn chair or blanket (we'll have some to share). Do bring some cash for the band! Suggested donation ~$10 (sliding scale). RSVP for address!
River Sister is an acoustic band on tour from Portsmouth, NH, featuring the vocal harmony of Elissa Margolin and Stefanie Guzikowski w/ the rhythms of bassist Nate Therrien and drummer PJ Donahue. One might call River Sister's genre of music, indie folk, reminiscent of Rising Appalachia or My Bubba with homage paid to the beauty of the sparse and a cappella. However, River Sister often moves its impressive rhythm section from background to foreground, sharing jazz inspired grooves with notable complexity.
