Like Wild

     

    Free to the public!

    The musical endeavor of an honest young man, Like Wild is the solo undertaking of Lancaster County's own Patrick Hatt. Like Wild's finely honed and uniquely folksy-Americana style channels his own down to earth and personable nature and infuses it in songs written about the extraordinary parts of the everyday: love, optimism, and the ultimate importance of being true to yourself. Like Wild's self-titled debut was released June 15th, 2010. The four song EP is a loosely compacted nugget of the stuff that makes Like Wild so easy to listen to - simple, genuine songs about the relatable problems and feelings everyone experiences. The EP was produced and engineered by friend Kurt DeMarra and mastered by Carl Saff, and is available through iTunes, Amazon, and other digital retailers. Be sure to catch Like Wild live in the upcoming months in support of his brand new release.

    Amanda's first guitar was pulled from a dumpster at a construction site where her father worked, and was handed to her after some furniture polish and a mixed set of half-used strings. Despite the collection of varied instruments and equipment he owned, her father's knowledge of music consisted of a crude concept of the major scale only in C, and the fingering for basic G, C, and F chords. She learned what she could from whoever could teach, and what couldn't be taught, she learned on her own. Amanda spent most of her childhood immersed in almost every genre of music by way of a number of great musicians who have either passed on, or whose time for music has passed them by. Since the day her parents brought her home from the hospital into a trailer full of musicians, poets, and artists, she has been in love with music.

Laura Stevenson and The Cans
    Friday April 27, 2012 8:00pm - 8:45pm @ Chameleon Club (223 North Water St. Lancaster, PA 17603)

     

    Free to VIP Badge Holders | $5 for Regular Badge Holders and for Friday/Weekend Wristbands | $13 adv./$15 D.O.S. without Badge or Wristband

    Laura Stevenson was schooled in the traditional music of her grandfather and grandmother (composer of "The Little Drummer Boy" and vocalist for the Benny Goodman Orchestra respectively) from an early age. It wasn't until she started performing with Bomb The Music Industry in her teens, that she began writing on her own. Privately crafting songs on the softer side of indie rock and traditional folk, Stevenson was soon tapped as the band's opener and, with the addition of Mike Campbell and Alex Billig in 2007, Laura Stevenson and the Cans solidified. Their live band grew into a quintet, often times swelling to eight members, and the following debut LP, A Record, won them fans far and wide having been downloaded over 25,000 time since it's 2008 release.

    Sit Resist, an album centered around never sitting stagnant, sees a matured band that has been continuously at work writing, arranging and touring for the past three years. Lyrically, Stevenson's pen has a sharp, poetic tone, making it impossible not to be taken in by her stories. Where A Record crackled with Stevenson's intimate voice alongside gentle acoustics, begging the listener nearer, Sit Resist commands the attention of all within earshot with its rich instrumentation and textured melodies.

    Over the course of the album's thirteen songs, you'll hear the band weld a variety of musical styles that dreamily caress and nurture one another into a wholly unique rendering of Americana. "Master of Art" with its Phil Spector-esque, girl-group tease of an intro, explodes with the energy of Stevenson's voice - an instrument that is as strong as it is lovely. "Caretaker" conjures up ghosts and memories of homes inevitably / regrettably left behind. You'll find major-key resolution in the juxtaposed tale that is "The Healthy One," and "I See Dark" waltzes you, dear listener, into the lonely night, hand-in-hand.

    The overall effect achieved by Laura Stevenson & the Cans is an album that's as invigorating and life-affirming as it is quietly emotional and delicate. This is an intelligent, literate album crafted of fragments of fleeting memories of time and place, yet it manages to convey volumes. Sit Resist is a true piece of art! Out now on Don Giovanni Records.

Mike McMonagle
    Friday April 27, 2012 8:45pm - 9:15pm @ The Taproom (25 West King St. Lancaster, PA 17603)

    At an age when most kids start playing with matches, Mike McMonagle was, well, also playing with matches. Luckily, the day came when matches lost their luster and he picked up a guitar. It was a Saturday, presumably, and the Pennsylvania sky was blue and cloudless (probably). The first chord he ever strummed was an E minor; to this day, Mike still plays that chord, along with others, to craft an array of folk-inspired ditties about riding trains, drinking wine and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Listening to Mike perform is like taking a deep breath while watching the sun rise on a crisp, dewy morning, after a sleepless night of heavy drinking.

The Castros
    Saturday April 28, 2012 9:30pm - 10:00pm @ Lancaster Dispensing Company (33-35 North Market St. Lancaster, PA 17603)

    The Castros is a husband & wife musical team that met in Savannah, Georgia in the summer of 2006. Their music began in a friend's living room where Sara taught Marco his first guitar chords. They would later go and start creating music together, combining very different musical influences to craft their own sound, in an attempt to reflect their passions, life experiences and God's light to the listener through their songs. 

    Marco was born in Costa Rica and has been influenced by a lot of musical genres and styles that range from heavy music to latin rhythms. Sara grew up in Newark, OH listening to classic rock and folk music. No wonder where their need of experimentation comes from and how this collapse of influences makes them unique. They even have a few songs in Spanglish! 

    Now they reside in Columbus, OH, their base of operations, where they spend their time waiting, dreaming, writing and taking their music wherever they go. 

    They craft their songs in such a way to have a deeper meaning for the listener that would evoke strong feelings to help soften the heart and open it to the infinite possibilities of love.
