If neural physics has taught us one thing, it's that together, three female minds form a super brain. In the triad Lovers, Carolyn Berk, Kerby Ferris, and Emily Kingan balance, accentuate, and harmonize their unique talents. With animated honesty and unrelenting humor, Lovers enthusiastically draws an audience into the darkly colorful world of their hearts, where throbbing pop textures and a steady electronic pulse transform tender introspections into room-shaking anthems. The result is an expansive sonic landscape of colorful wonder and hope, and an interactive and engaging performance that strives to leave audiences inspired.
Since 2001 songwriter Carolyn Berk has established her unique voice under the Lovers moniker with four acclaimed, haunted, heart-broken releases. The addition of waveform artist Kerby Ferris and multi-talented instrumentalist, Emily Kingan (of the hardcore due, the Haggard) focuses three wildly ambitious and boldly sincere artists on hooky beats and interactive performance.
The Degenerettes are a lofi art pop group from Baltimore, MD. The all-girl group, originally formed in a Baltimore basement in 2005, brings together magnates of Baltimore's DIY art and music scenes. In addition to performing in rock clubs, warehouses, and galleries on the East Coast, The Degenerettes collaborate with The Miss America Puppet Show, and are among the subjects of Riot Acts, an indie doc on transgender musicians released in 2009, have contributed music to films by Chris LaMartina and Jeanie Clark. and will also have a song featured in the forthcoming film version of Michelle Tea's acclaimed novel Valencia.
Saddle of Centaur
Saddle of Centaur is what happens when old heads get together to play the kind of music they like without too much regard for what anyone else likes. Kathy and Andrea miss the days where ladies could play heavy music and be slightly terrifying. L7 for life.
Aimee Norwich, a frequent guest of Baltimore’s own Charm City Kitty Club and the Transmodern Festival, plays hybrid bass, fretless bass, and electronics with drummer/electronicist Ian Cook. They are a Brooklyn-based music duo on tour in support of Aimee's new record. Aimee recently finished recording and producing her new album, with studio collaborator Senem Pirler.
Joan Sullivan and Stephanie Barber are the duo Bobby Donnie. They will have an album coming out soon from Ehse Records. They are nice, and they play nice songs. They have this nice website http://www.bobbydonniemusic.com/
