Friday, 9/19
9:30-11:30 pm
$5 cover


website: https://www.facebook.com/5HEADMUSIC


Bio: A 5Head show feels like an illegal party. Not the kind where the cops come because it’s too loud, but the kind that the government might try to ban because it’s too much fun. With seemingly boundless energy, they dish out fiercely solid rhythm section grooves underneath traditionally catchy ska guitar stabs, all while sometimes sweet and sometimes red hot horn harmonies duke it out with front man Rob Reed’s freight train inspired vocals.

5Head fuses elements of 1st and 2nd wave ska with soul and swing to create an upbeat energetic sound that is catchy and feverishly danceable.

From a songwriting perspective, what makes 5Head stand out among the legions of other ska bands is simple: hook. That thing that catches your ear and makes something new seem familiar. From the bass lines to the chord progression, from the vocal melody to the horns lines, hook is king.

5Head has regularly shared stages with ska heavyweights Bim Skala Bim, The Toasters, and The Pietasters.

Derek Knott

Wednesday, 9/24
6:30-8:30 pm
no cover

Modern Folk
website: http://www.derekknott.com

Bio: “Lyrical depth and maturity tinged with the melodic hues of early 60s rock. The ballads have a brooding intensity.” -Dean O’Brien Host of “The Vinyl Departure” WVBR 93.5 FM Ithaca, NY.

“Solo artist Derek Knott’s songs are like little prayers- little secular prayers. That’s not to say there isn’t plenty of soul and spirituality in his acoustically rooted music. Even the laid back tunes smile warmly and swing sweetly.” – Rochester’s City Newspaper


This Life

Thursday, 9/25
9-11 pm
no cover

website: www.reverbnation.com/thislife2011
audio: www.soundcloud.com/thislifemusic

Bio: This Life starts with Ryan Johnson and Miles George meeting in the fall of 2007, while attending Finger Lakes Community College. Right from the get-go, their musical tastes and styles became immediately entangled together, in which they began writing music together. Once their friendship and musical ideas grew, they decided to start writing an EP. Throughout the past 2 years they had figured out exactly what they wanted as far as their sound and the tracks that would make it to the album.

After the EP was completed, Ryan and Miles played acoustically under the name RJ and Cu-Cu (derived from the name of Miles’ solo effort) at various open mic nights. As time passed, they began the search for a full group. In late 2013, Scott Dupray on bass and Aaron Davis on drums joined the two to re-form and re-name the band This Life. Currently the band is gigging, writing, and recording on a regular basis throughout the Western NY area, and are continuing to do so today. Check them out!
