The now-legendary weekly dance night.

EVERY SATURDAY, 11pm-3am. No cover. Come as you are; all positivity and fun welcome. DJ Soul Sister on the turntables, you on the dancefloor.

Quilt + Mutual Benefit

Wednesday, September 14
Hi-Ho Lounge

18+ | Doors 8pm

**QUILT**
QUILT was formed in late 2008 in Boston, MA.

Shane Butler, Anna Fox Rochinski and Taylor McVay met at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and spent the next couple of years honing a strange yet magnetic ramshackle sound in the smoke-filled basements and living rooms of Jamaica Plain and Allston. They released a home-made tape in 2009, touring DIY style around the northeast in a 1993 Buick Roadmaster.

In Spring/Summer 2010, the trio recorded a collection of seven songs in the home of Jesse Gallagher, in Cambridge. The following winter, after Taylor’s amicable departure from Quilt, John Andrews was recruited and subsequently plucked from the suburbs of New Jersey to join the band on a tour to SXSW.

It was around this time that those seven songs had made their way to the big guy’s desk at Mexican Summer records in Brooklyn, via former Captured Tracks label manager Katie Garcia (a friend from the college years in Boston). The band returned to Cambridge and recorded three more songs, now with the songwriting input and drumming from John.

Quilt’s self-titled ten-song debut was released in November 2011 on Mexican Summer to positive reviews from critics and the band began touring in support of the record on and off for the next year or so.

Their following record, Held In Splendor, was recorded in Brooklyn with producer Jarvis Taveniere. Released in early 2014, the album ushered in another year of near-constant touring. The trio recruited New Hampshire-based bassist Keven Lareau for their live shows.

Nearly two years later, Quilt’s third full-length record, Plaza, will see the light of day on February 26th, 2016. Lead singles “Eliot St” and “Roller” have been met with praise and the group has full US and Europe tours lined up.

The band considers itself a New York-based band that formed in Boston.

The 4 members reside in Brooklyn, Upstate New York, and New Hampshire.

And as lovely as it was to tour in a 20-foot station wagon with faux-wood panelling, they eventually upgraded to a 12 passenger Chevy Express van. His name is Big Earl.

**MUTUAL BENEFIT**
Jordan Lee has spent the last few years moving from Ohio to Austin to Boston, and most recently Brooklyn, running the wonderful Kassette Klub label, touring with friends’ groups, and leading an amorphous project called Mutual Benefit: a one-man-band or a sprawling collective, depending on where he is and who is around that day. After several cassette EPs and split releases, and playing scores of house shows, Lee completed his debut album Love’s Crushing Diamond, a record of lush, watery, pop songs, pieced together over the past several years and inspired by the kinetic energy, goodbyes, and blurred landscapes of life on the road.

The songs are heartfelt and powerful with Lee’s fragile and beautiful voice as the centerpiece, and the recordings are an instantly engaging blend of high and low fidelity, mixing lush studio productions, featuring keys, guitar, violin and banjo, with clattering homemade percussion and found sounds. While the album is certainly Lee’s brainchild, the recordings are very much a collaborative effort featuring contributions by friends and others met along the way.

Love’s Crushing Diamond was initially going to be a cassette-only self-release. Then some friends offered to start a label and press a limited edition 250 LP run. However, as the Bandcamp posting of the album received growing recognition, Other Music Recording Co. offered to take the reigns for the proper release this record deserves. Not a moment too soon, as Love’s Crushing Diamond became the first-ever Bandcamp release to be named “Best New Music” by Pitchfork, and earned a “Band to Watch” feature on Stereogum.

WCP presents CW Stoneking + Eric Johanson

Winter Circle Productions Presents…
C.W. Stoneking

Sunday, September 18th
Hi-Ho Lounge

18+ | Doors 8pm

C.W. Stoneking fell in love with the blues when he was in his teens. Born in Katherine, in Australia’s remote Northern Territory, CW was the son of an American school teacher with a passion for music. He vividly remembers being eleven years old and stumbling across Living With The Blues, an early blues compilation, in his father’s collection: “When I first heard it I thought it was kinda funny music”, he told a Dutch interviewer a few years ago, “because it was so deconstructed and not really adhering to any rules that I’d been told music [should] fit into. And the more I listened to it, I just liked it more and more.”

Soon his curiosity led him to Son House, Robert Johnson, Skip James and Bukka White, gospel blues, Chicago blues, ragtime, Hokum blues, with each sub-genre revealing more amazing music. It seemed like there was an endless universe of blues to explore, one that was much more interesting to Stoneking than the mundane world of late ’80s pop that was all around him at the time.

Flash forward a few years and CW has taught himself the banjo and electric guitar, but his prized possession is a 1931 National Duolian dobro. This was same instrument that Blind Boy Fuller and other blues legends chose to play. “I liked it because it was loud,” Stoneking says, “When I first started playing old blues it wasn’t so easy to get a gig, and I spent a lot of time busking and things like that…I knew all the old blues guys who used to busk used them and it was for a good reason.”

Although he’s a brilliant musician he enjoys the lighter side of performing as well. He has a larger-than-life stage presence, beginning with his dapper outfit: tropical whites, a bowtie and slicked-back hair. He exhibits a sly diffidence in his between-song patter too, “I tell a lot of stories onstage,” Stoneking tells me, “and then I tend to ramble. I talk that sort of stuff just for my own entertainment.” His busking experiences taught him well: the first rule is to entertain, after that it’s plain sailing.

The blues is a living art form, albeit one that has been neglected by most contemporary musicians, and Stoneking has made it his mission to move the music forward whilst maintaining the authenticity that make this music so unique. Like a fruit tree sprouting new branches upon ancient root stock, CW writes and performs all his own songs, and he has now recorded three complete albums of wholly original material: King Hokum, Jungle Blues and, his latest, Gon’ Boogaloo. Each one is as different from the other as the diverse strands of the blues that inspire him.

Armed with his trusty steel guitar, Stoneking paid tribute to some of his musical influences on his semi-official bootleg album, Mississippi and Piedmont Blues, 1927-1941. A limited edition that was only available at his gigs, it featured songs by Sleepy John Estes, Memphis Minnie and Blind Willie McTell sitting alongside obscurities by Bobby Grant, Geeshie Wiley, Joe Callicott, Mattie Delaney and Blind Blake. The diversity of songs he covered demonstrated the breadth and depth of his blues scholarship. As well as repaying a debt to his musical forbears it also gives a valuable insight into what shaped CW’s own songwriting.

Gon’ Boogaloo sees CW reconnecting with the electric guitar for the first time on record. That doesn’t mean he’s abandoned his antique blues stylings, far from it. In fact the recording of Gon’ Boogaloo is the most primitive of his career. It’s also the most audacious. Recorded live with no overdubs in just two days, the performers were grouped around a single ribbon microphone, with one other additional tube mic. for CW’s vocals and guitar. This bare bones method of recording sounds preposterous to most modern artists but Stoneking knew it was the best way to capture the vitality and the integrity of his sound. It was almost as basic a recording technique as the one Alan Lomax used when he travelled the Southern United States recording delta blues singers in hotel rooms in the 1930s.

The results speak for themselves. Gon’ Boogaloo sounds magnificent and as a songwriter Stoneking has surpassed himself. He draws influences from old calypso, early rock ’n’ roll, ’60s girl groups, late-’50s R’n’B and gospel, among many others. His lyrics, as always, are colourful and sometimes fanciful, but they’re underpinned by personal experience. Stoneking likes to cloak his personal insights in larger-than-life stories: “I work better with something to hang it on,” he told me. “I can run free with the metaphors in there and it doesn’t come out sounding preachy.” Gon’ Boogaloo is the record he was born to make and is easily the best of his career.
