Monday, Jan 22: Jessica Lea Mayfield

Jessica Lea Mayfield will make some people uncomfortable with the level of honesty she projects on her latest LP, Sorry Is Gone, but she’s not going to apologize for it, or for anything else on her complex, confessional fourth album.

Recorded with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent and Dinosaur Jr.), Sorry Is Gone is a raw document of a woman in progress; one weathering cruel storms but finally able to blame the rain itself for the flood.

Guest Act: Sun Seeker. Click here for more information.

Saturday, Jan 27: Mr. Carmack

Like a hinge to a doorway between dance music and hip hop, Mr. Carmack’s musical output occupies a void between these two genres.

Constantly translating personal experience into his craft, Carmack finds inspiration from a range of sources, from his friends and fellow musicians in production cliques, Team Supreme and Soulection, to his travels and numerous sold out tours of five continents over the past two years.
