From Art Attack Entertainment: 15 years ago I started gathering and hosting artists and their work, showcasing the underground talent that lives in the Greater Worcester County area. It gives people a chance to see the artistic endeavors that, in there raw form, would be considered vandelism or dangerous. From graffiti art, to breakdancing, I have showcased their talent in a non-destructive way by building my own walls out of plywood for the artists to create their piece of work and providing the kids that come from tough neighborhoods a place to express their passion freely. The Artists put their energy into this positive outlet instead of a destructive path that many people in their community fall into. As my festivals grew, I have added motorcycle stunt shows and then art fusion: a blending of 3 separate artists that begin on thier own piece and then switch places every hour. I have wanted to easily provide local music, BMX, skateboarding and more to the community, bringing light to these art forms that have had to live in the crevices of society. With your help, we can all provide a safe and accommodating venue to these artists, their art, and, in turn, the larger goal of artistic integrity.
NewEARS Presents: A Day of Prog - May 31st, 2014 The Regent Theatre - Arlington, MA IZZ, Resistor, Baked Beans, Sonus Umbra, Mavara Details coming soon from the Regent Theater on May 15th. IZZ Founded by Galgano brothers (Tom and John) IZZ has performed at numerous venues and festivals including: Rosfest 04, CalProg 04/05, Progday 02/06, NEARfest 07 and the upcoming Terra Incognita Progressive Rock Festival . IZZ released their sixth and most recent studio album, Crush of Night, to rave reviews from fans and critics alike. RESISTOR RESISTOR is the rock quartet of Steve Unruh, Fran Turner, Barry Farrands, and Rob Winslow. The band's sound is characterized by merging modern progressive and rock song structures with an organic classic rock sound. Their classic rock sound is probably due to their preferred recording technique of having everyone play the basic tracks in the same room at the same time, like bands did the "old days." This allows RESISTOR's recorded music to "breathe," as you can hear the band members adjust to each others' energy, tempo, and feel in real-time. SONUS UMBRA Winter Soulstice marks the 5th studio album, and the 20th anniversary of the band Sonus Umbra. Originally formed in Mexico City, Sonus Umbra now resides in Chicago. The current line-up is an all-new ensemble featuring some of Chicago's best progressive rock musicians: Rich Poston and Tim McCaskey on guitar and vocals, Brian Harris on keyboards, Steve Royce on flute, vocals and holophonics, Roey Ben-Yoseph on lead vocals, with Andy Tillotson on drums and vocals and Luis Nasser on bass the last two standing from previous incarnations. Sonus Umbra plays dark, symphonic prog rock that is equally influenced by bands like Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Rush, Jethro Tull, Iron Maiden and King crimson. MAVARA Mavara, is Iran's first premier progressive rock band. The name Mavara translates to "beyond everything you think" which speaks to the essence of their music. The band was formed in 2001 by composer/keyboardist Farhood Ghadiri and over the years has had a fluid line-up of members, performing extensively in Tehran and Karaj. Currently Mavara is comprised of Ghadiri along with Ashkan Hamidi /vocals, James Welch/drums, Scott Abene/guitar, Sina Khodaiefer/ bass and Anis Oveisi/keyboardist. Because of their unique sound and talent, Mavara quickly gained notoriety in Iran, receiving acclaim from the Tehran Industry and Science University as "Best Rock Band at a Live Performance".
