[Tonight In Somerville] NEW MUSIC NIGHT returns to the ONCE Lounge (plus last NMN’s playlist)

Posted on September 19, 2016 at 9:35 am | No Comments

Well, this worked out quite nicely indeed. When we were trying to figure out which (taco!) Monday evening in September would host the monthly New Music Night at Somerville’s Once Lounge, tonight jumped right out as the ideal choice. The reason? My two hour DJ set of new music and Boston-area ticket giveaways would serve as an intro of sorts for a free performance by singular songwriter Chris Brokaw, who will in turn be opening up for Catherine Capozzi (aka Axemunkee). As a longtime fan of all-things-Brokaw (including Come, Codeine, the New Year, Empty House Cooperative, his duo work with Geoff Farina, and occasional stint helping the Lemonheads sound better), it’s a show I would have been at anyway. Since Chris relocated from Boston to Seattle five years ago (side note: 5 years already?!), his area solo sets are rarer occasions, of course, and even more rarely do they feature the combo of taco accompaniment, free admission, and a carefully chosen playlist of brand new songs to set the mood.

Taco time starts at 5pm, New Music Night (and ticket giveaways) at 6pm, and Chris should start around 8pm. Oh, and about those giveaways? Great stuff this month, including pairs to upcoming area appearances by LVL UP, Pansy Division, Tanya Donelly, Poster Children, Kudgel, Halfsour, and Flock of Dimes (Jenn from Wye Oak!). For more info, check out the Facebook event, and scroll down below this month’s Daykamp-designed flyer for a look at what I played last month at NMN’s August edition…
