From Nicole Stanton ’15:
this thurs earth house has good people that make dang good tunes.
1st we have the return of spliffjams (9 PM)
jamming and spliff-ing and Hana Elion, Jay Sharma, and Ari Ebstein
then Yadda Yadda (10 PM)
New Haven-based songsmith and multi-instrumentalist, Yadda Yadda sings an eclectic, introspective indie-soul. Drawing on an omnivorous musical palette with tastes for everything from counterpoint to Chance the Rapper, Ayanna Woods, with her voice and her songwriting, hopes to use her modern, genre-shrugging music to explore and expand notions of black artists and female artists today.Woods’ work as a songwriter is in growing demand. Woods’ music is surprising. As she hunts for grooves and melodies that excite the mind, body, and soul, her music is at its best, for her, when it finds a feeling that she doesn’t quite understand, when it expresses something true and new and inexplicable.
then Josh the Word ’11 (11 PM)
Josh is a rapper from Woodstock, NY who now lives in Brooklyn. You might know him is the dude rapping in that photo in Usdan. For this show he will be joined by Myles Avery ’12 on samples/loops, Nate Mondschein ’12 (of The Rooks) on drums, and the one and only Mimi Goldstein on guest vocals. Josh recently released the EP SIXTAPE, which is streaming here right now.
see u then.
