8 Armand Margjeka
The second LP from Armand Margjeka, Hummingbird, was conceived as An Exhibition of 10 Works representing a series of creative recording sessions with a diverse and talented core of musicians. Hummingbird is the collective result of Margjeka’s production aesthetic complimented by three-time Grammy award winning engineer Darrell Thorp (Radiohead, Beck, Outkast, Gnarls Barkley), Chris Steffen (Stereophonics, Ben Harper) and Eric Masse (Escondido, Rayland Baxter), and marks the continued intentional direction established on Margjeka’s debut solo album Margo Margo (2011) of creating honest art endeavors without preconceived parameters. "Margjeka's bluesy vocals soar as he picks at his guitar...Instantly memorable and filled with soul and vibrant imagery." –FILTER Magazine “Acoustic warmth with shimmers of electronic notes and nostalgic vocals with that megaphone-y feel.” –BBC Radio
9 The Fearless
Original hard rock with three part harmonies
10 Kings
Kings is sad but only in song. Theirs is a world that embraces a musical past where song-writing is the east and pizza is the sun. When a band could make a little thing like heartbreak sound as good as good as Kris Kristofferson, George Jones, or the Rolling Stones (but cuter).

Air For Ants was created in 2009 by Dominic Sahagun whose lustrous voice and unique style of songwriting attracted both musicians and listeners.

Five years and over 30 songs later, Air For Ants has revived, this time as a progressive pop band. Air For Ants has taken the city by storm, playing all around Manhattan and Brooklyn alike. The band's debut EP was recorded in the spring of 2013 (Dan Fleisher eng.) and select tracks can be heard online at airforants.bandcamp.com
10 Holland Patent Public Library

  4 Barstool Tabernacle
  5-8:30 Open Mic
  9 My Favourite Things
My Favourite Things could be called singer-songwriter-ey, but they’re having a hard time with stamps/genres/file cabinets. They sing and play songs that are colored with elements of indie/folk/pop/rock/experimental/shoegaze, depending on the show or the song, the time or the mood. They can appear somewhere between a duo or 5-piece group, sometimes with a more rocky, sometimes folky and sometimes even electronic incarnation, depending on the occasion - (at Pete’s, we will probably be a duo, folk-style, but you never know)
  10 Aaron Lopez-Barrantes

Samuel Vas-Y
Having just released his debut album 'Tickly Teeth', Samuel Arnold, aka Samuel Vas-Y, is gaining momentum as an original 'singer song scribbler'. The record was produced by Windmill Lane Studios founder, Brian Masterson. Amongst the musicians involved on the album is Cathy Davey who sings a fun form of duet on the song 'Creeping and Crawling'. His song 'Millionaire of Hours' was released in South Korea under Rainbowtape Recordings and subsequently appears on an ad for major fashion label Comodo Square. It features American olympian / male model, Race Imboden. Samuel's boyhood in France brings influences of Latin music; from Tropicália to Freak-Folk, Serge Gainsbourg to Devendra Banhart, He sings in French as well as English.
The song entitled 'Tickly Teeth' (City Boy EP version), which has over 10,000 views on Youtube, was released on the album 'Oscar the Hypno Dog: And Other Tails' alongside the best of contemporary Irish musicians, such as Lisa Hannigan and Villagers. This led to numerous performances including the RTE Late Late Show. The album reached number 4 on the Irish charts. This contact led to wonderful collaborations which Samuel was to work with in the making of his debut album.

  11 Stephen Bartolomei
Stephen Bartolomei began as a pensive songwriter over a decade ago, performing under the name Mal Madrigal. With the release of his fourth record, All The Ghosts, Bartolomei has dropped the previous moniker, playing under his own name with comrades as an accurate label for the group of long time friends and musical collaborators who join him. Recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, All The Ghosts is the most genuine representation of the musical talent of the band to date. Bartolomei's songwriting escapes easy categorization, nimbly shifting from lush melodic folk to electrified minor key moodiness. In its spare moments the music is intimate, in its crescendos, powerful. Bartolomei’s voice is compelling yet humble, in service to communicating the song. Stephen has shared the stage with notable artists including Calexico, Centro-Matic, Bright Eyes, Nina Nastasia, Destroyer, Simon Joyner, Richard Buckner, and many others.

  10 Food Will Win The War
  11 Jess Williamson
Jess Williamson’s debut album, Native State, simply doesn’t feel like your typical folk and country-inspired music from the South. Williamson’s approach is far too unique and haunting, too poetic and pointed to be lumped in with the rest of the twangy rabble. It is connected in sound and spirit to the deep heart of Texas but has the ability to transport us all to our own place of comfort, calm, and contentment.

"Sometimes she sounds like Angel Olsen or Joanna Newsom, but more often she sounds like a coyote—lonesome and half-rabid, howling into the sparse landscapes of her songs and then pausing, as if she’s waiting for an echo.” Pitchfork

9 Nick Garrie
Nick's rare 1969 Baroque pop masterpiece The Nightmare of JB Stanislas has long been loved by psychedelic record collectors. The album's initial release was plagued by maladies including the suicide of Garrie's label manager, which led him to abandon the music industry, first returning to school and then managing a ski resort in the Swiss Alps. While the album brought flashes of success in Europe, including touring alongside Leonard Cohen in the mid 1980s, Garrie mostly remained largely out of sight, oblivious to Stanislas's growing cult popularity. Re-issued by Elefant Records in 2010 with previously unreleased songs, the album's rediscovery has prompted Garrie to return to performing for the first time in over forty years.

11 Pete Lanctot and The Stray Dogs
New York Music Daily writes that, "Pete Lanctot personifies pretty much everything good about New York's most happening music scene" His songs are surreal and mysterious narratives featuring sordid casts of characters who’s origins are vague, and seem equally likely to be found in present day New York City, a Memphis juke joint of the 1920s or hitchhiking a depression era plains state highway. Steeped in American traditions of blues, folk and country. Backed by The Stray Dogs, a talented and versatile cast of musicians and improvisers Lanctot’s music is original, rabble rousing, heartbreaking and soul searching, always exploring the non-traditional without relying on reproduction.

  9 Boyd Shropshire
Queens-based Boyd Shropshire (Human Television, Kurt Vile, Slow Country) has been quietly crafting his own brand of hallucinatory pop for well over a decade. His dedication to analog and experimental recording techniques produces blankets of warm and inviting sound. He also is founder of Wonderland Archives, an independent label he runs with his girlfriend.
  10 Wild leaves
Wild Leaves are five friends who moved from the midwest to Brooklyn together. That distance is reflected in their songs. Their sound is something nostalgic, something with history–like a record rediscovered in your attic. The soaring harmonies, assertive rhythm section, and shimmering electric guitars have drawn comparisons to the west coast sounds of The Byrds, CSNY, & Jefferson Airplane. Yet, there is something still distinctly relevant to today–like the sound of a memory not yet lost.
  11 Chase King
Chase King creates pop gems in Brooklyn, NY. He currently writes music for his solo project, and as a part of label-mate Slow Country.

11 Workman Song
Like a Bob Dylan-Edward Sharpe hybrid, Workman Song is a gritty, freewheeling folk project that whittles and leans its way into your heart by way of earnest, amber-toned songs exploring the edges of faith ... Workman Song is some sort of cult, possibly involving ice cream, just waiting to happen. We’re among the first converts, but we’re sure soon you’ll be joining us.” — The Wild Honey Pie

Steff Small
"Trumpeting her powerful voice over an lush blend of folk, pop, and rock, Australian native Steph Small channels a variety of inspirations -- from Carole King and Natalie Cole to Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, and Imogen Heap.

Currently living, writing and gigging on the East Coast, Steph's music explores the essence of humanity -- the joy, the pain, the imperfection. In her songs, she fights for hope amidst the darkness, in an effort to make music that moves the soul."

  8 Matt Dobkin

She is currently working to release an EP of original music in the late summer of 2014.
  11 Nosy Mangabe
Nosy Mangabe's music is strange, captivating, and melodic, with lyrics ranging from vulnerable introspection, to fanciful stories about men who ride tornadoes in the hopes of getting to kiss clouds that resemble their lovers. With dueling ukuleles at the helm, the forces of this progressive-jazz-folk quintet fuse the whimsical, weird, and wonderful, producing an exquisite maelstrom of sound, guaranteed to leave the listener's hair messy.

TUE 8/26 8 David Strange
The David Strange EP is an acid lullaby, jukebox music from the future underground. Each track has a strong sense of itself; a thick narrative rope of surreal American fable and admonition runs through the center of every miniature world, surrounded by an ecosystem that’s alternately electric and dissonant, manic and devoted. The songs crackle with life and immediacy; the lyrics suffuse the body before clicking into shape in the mind, and they linger. The EP will be released in Fall 2014...stay tuned.
9 Christina Kaminis
Inspired by blues, folk, and jazz, Cristina's music is not put into a box of either. Her vocal texture reminds of jazz singers of the past yet a mix of styles can be heard throughout her songs. Accompanied by the talents of Isamu McGregor on keys, her music is honest and of it's own kind.

Off the success of her new record “Keep it with mine,” Cavanagh has teamed up with Banks to form a project called “little sparrow.” Two old souls with two distinct sounds, their taste in music blends as well as their voices. With a set that is a mix of originals and covers, throwbacks and love songs, the boy-girl duo trade vocals on Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Judy Garland, and Ryan Adams covers, while bringing in nice harmonies and modern day takes on their original tunes. The duo has taken their collaboration to Europe and around the United States.

11 Brett Williams
Music was always my driving force growing up. I got my first guitar at 11 and taught myself how to play; joined a band and started playing out at 15.

His first full length album, So Much Love, was released in June, 2014. Don Paris Schlotman writes: "His voice rings clear and true with a tone that is simultaneously uplifting but also slightly melancholic....It’s not often an album gives chills not only on your arm, but in your heart. I entreat you to dive into this lush and beautiful ocean, to swim far away from the shore of everyday life, of physical entrapment, to be lost in the sea of love.

  9 Rivky Gee
Rivky’s musical career took off last year, joining Cellist, Brian Sanders, with the writing and recording of their first Album-EP, Angel Sings the Blues. Raised in Brooklyn, New York, Rivky's music combines unique beat structure, a folksy blues style, and the influence of her Hassidic culture upbringing. Rivky's work has been compared to Jacques Brel, Laura Nyro, Billy Joel, Sara McLachlan, and early Regina Spektor.

A self-taught musician and artist, Rivky attempts to compose a symmetry to her, sometimes, discombobulated perception which, she says, good or bad, plays like a fuzzy, backdrop hum in her day to day routine and ignites her creative spark.

This year Rivky and Brian were invited to perform at Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet in NYC featuring Suzanne Vega. Recently, they were also included on the bill for the Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC.
