 Hi all you Stars,


I am happy to announce Subpar Co-star is playing a free show on Saturday 1/26 at Sally O'Brien's in Union Sq. Somerville.  It is a great Irish bar with cheap drinks, no cover, plenty of parking, no cover, and a great vibe (no cover).  Did I mention there is no cover?  Subpar Co-star opens the night up, so be there early.  Doors at 8 pm. 


Other than that, hope you are having a great new year thus far.


Warm wishes,

"Subpar Co-Star (a.k.a. James Force) was compelling with his whimsical irrelevant style and acoustic guitar looping (quite impressive). I would call his thing ‘experimental folk,’... He has an album available, Gidgets and Gadgets, an aptly-named venture, what with its neo-folk, jazz-funk, spoken word, experimental, electronic and ambient influences (and sometimes all on the same song). DIY recorded, produced and “distributed” as a numbered limited edition, the packaging is as lo-fi as the recording, hand-lettered with custom stickers, each bearing a different method of acceptable payment for the release (mine says “pay w/ a unicorn, if ya got one”)."  Julie Stoller, The Boston Survival Guide

"Doing the DIY live looping shows and handing out home recorded cd’s has definitely gotten me some odd looks in Boston. I think it’s because we’re spoiled musically. There are so many talented sound professionals, musicians, and studios in the city that we’ve gotten used to pro music performances. Subpar is going in the opposite direction and embracing the personal side of the songs and performances. I just think it adds a different twist on what a show should be."  Candace McDuffie, Performer Magazine

"You can bet your over-sized washboard attached to a tuba that this hardcore-DIY, low-fi amalgamation of sonic… sonicness wasn’t “subpar” at T.T.’s last night!”  Sean Clancy, Dig Boston
