Blac Rabbit: Music of The Beatles & More (Brunch Matinee) at The Loft - City Winery
September 09, 2018 - New York

Born and raised in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with. Growing up surrounded by hip hop culture and all it's glory, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. So naturally when they began writing songs in high school, they decided "why not learn from arguably the greatest song writing duo of all time?" and proceeded to teach themselves how to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles. After high school they formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes.

Vera Sola, Matt Holubowski - Mercury Lounge
September 11, 2018 - New York

Vera Sola is a poet, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. A drifter performing her own songs alone in and out of dark bars under various pseudonyms, Vera Sola toured and recorded with a variety of artists, for a long while accompanying singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins on the road. She has in turn collaborated on film scores and provided original music for theater and performance art. In early 2017, she experienced a total shift in relation to her voice and musicianship, and only then was she finally compelled to record and release her own songs. In the days following, hiding out in a studio in St. Louis, she wrote, arranged, produced and performed all the parts on her upcoming LP 'Shades.' Sound making, for her, has always been like mediumship. A channeling. There is no template for what it should genre other than the strange night music within her, born more from intuition and surrender rather than any formal construction.
