Four Local Gigs

April 15th, 2024
contra, music
I haven't been playing in Boston much lately, but over the next month I'll be playing four times:

  • 2024-04-19 through 2024-04-21: NEFFA. It's this weekend! On Friday night Kingfisher is playing the contra medley (9pm) and then a set of contras (9:30) with Alex Deis-Lauby calling. We'll be playing again on Sunday for a family dance (3pm) with Kristin Siebert calling. Plus Lily and I are leading a kids contra tune jam on Sunday at 2pm (tunes).

  • 2024-04-27: Northboro. Adults $10, $5 students. Rick, Lily, and I are playing as Dandelion. This is Lily's first dance as a booked musician, and first time playing on-mic! It's also an afternoon dance, 2pm-4:30, not an evening one. Harris Lapiroff will be calling.

  • 2024-05-11: Somerville Porchfest on Morrison Ave, Kingfisher with Harris calling. Free and outdoors, with a rain date of the next day. Here's the status of my block party application, with all the different city departments reviewing it; it looks likely that we'll be able to close the street again:

    We're playing 2pm until ~3:30pm, since we need to drive to Hartford to play the evening dance with Don Veino.

  • 2024-05-16: Concord Thursday. Evening contra dance as Kingfisher with Julian Blechner calling.
