Molly Maguires – AS220 Streaming Session
Jun 24 @ 8:00 pm – 9:15 pm
Molly Maguires is an indie rock & roll band from New England … In the summer of 2009, founding member JJ Sorensen began conceptualizing and writing music for Molly Maguires. In 2010, while attending Framingham State University, Sorensen met vocalist Meghan Earle, and the pair would eventually launch a failed attempt to start Molly Maguires in 2014 with other musicians they had met at FSU. After this near-immediate disbandment, Earle went on to front the popular Boston-area cover band The Road Dawgs while Sorensen mostly abandoned music, occasionally working as a live guitarist for lifelong friend and pop/R&B artist Laura Dowding in their native Westerly, Rhode Island.
In late 2018, Sorensen was encouraged by then-coworker and entertainment industry veteran Kent Jordan to attempt another start at forming Molly Maguires. Earle, who had begun looking for original projects, agreed to join. After the duo recorded an acoustic demo in Earle’s apartment in early 2019, Sorensen began assembling a band. Jordan would go on to serve as Production Manager for the group’s debut album Public Enemies, which was recorded in November and December of 2019 and released on April 7th, 2020. The 8-track concept album was produced by Sorensen and Bradford Krieger and released to widespread acclaim, with singles “October Sky” and “For A Few $ More” receiving frequent airplay on college and indie radio.
After the COVID-19 pandemic prevented Molly Maguires from touring to support their debut album, the group instead began writing and production for their second full-length LP That’s My Story, which is tabbed for release on June 25th, 2021. The first single “Soul Searching” was released on February 12th, 2021 and climbed the college radio charts, reaching the top-200 (unweighted) and peaking at 202 in the weighted category. The second single off That’s My Story, “Hey Boyo,” was released on March 19th, 2021 and received a glowing review from Glide Magazine, who premiered the track on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2021.

Prateek – AS220 Streaming Session
Jun 29 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Prateek (pruh – TEEK) has been described as “Not just any guy with a guitar…” by The Boston Globe and perhaps that’s the best introduction to his music besides actually listening to it. The Boston-based artist recorded his debut EP, “Walking in My Sleep,” with only his guitar and two microphones in an attempt to emulate Bob Dylan’s early work. Since then, Prateek’s music has evolved to incorporate gritty electric guitars, silvery backing vocals, and lush strings, all draped around his own soulful, powerful voice. Prateek has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has been nominated for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards. His music has been played on radio stations including Sirius XM, 98.9 WERS, and 92.5 The River. His debut album, “The Band’s All Gone,” is available wherever digital music is sold or streamed.

Droplets – AS220 Streaming Session
Jul 1 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The formation of Droplets dates to early 2020, when longtime friends ⭐️Cayce!⭐️ (vocals) and Coco (bass) began writing a set of funk tunes with their robot friend, Robot (inhuman beatbox). However, due to its struggles with substance abuse and sex addiction, it soon became apparent that Robot was not up to the task, and they were quickly replaced by Din (synths) – a hot-headed cyborg who represents a significant technical (if somewhat volatile) upgrade over his predecessor.

Coalescing around this new lineup, the band began fleshing out a series of vignettes programmed and sequenced by Din – these sketches are generally underpinned by dreamy, psych-tinged melodies punctuated with random outbursts of feedback and noise. ⭐️Cayce!⭐️’s lyrics and soulful singing bring a pop sensibility to the proceedings, and Coco rounds out the equation with his sinewy bass lines.

Barring a major meltdown of Din’s CPU, Droplets hope to release their debut album in late ‘21.

Contemporary Dance Outside @ Hause of Glitter Performance Lab
Jul 3 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Balancing wildness and specificity, class will focus on bringing awareness to inner sensation as it paces creative expression to reveal the body’s instincts and inherent musicality. Full bodied dance phrases and ground movement will practice the coordination of effort and release in the body as a route to finding both our freest and deeply rooted dancing.
