FEATURED MUSICAL ACTS for WED SEPT 21
We're sure to have a packed crowd so get there EARLY for the best seats on the lawn.
Anjimile is a queer and trans songmaker / loverboy with a heart of gold. Colors is an indie pop album that explores the various shades and luminosities of sound. Anjimile's evocative lyricism and honey-smooth vocals shine brightly against a colorful backdrop of spacious soundscapes and dynamic melodies. From the folk-rock fields of "Green" to the dreamy waters of "Wakanda", each track on Colors vibes confidently in the spirit of exploration and experimentation.
"Anjimile’s long-awaited new record, Colors, comes on the heels of coming to terms with...major life events. The beautiful scope it covers, directly and indirectly, speaks to the affirming yet unnerving process of gradually setting in to your own skin." –DigBoston
M'bolo, meaning "togetherness" in the Senegalese language Wolof, embraces this ethos in the creation of their high-octane hybrid of Mbalax and Rock. Lead singer/percussionist Cheikh Ngom began singing, dancing, and playing sabar drums at the age of four in the coastal city of Kaolack, Senegal. After performing throughout Africa and Europe, Ngom arrived in the United States, where he founded M’bolo with Dillon Zahner (guitar), Galen Willett (bass), Arone Ndiaye (keys), and Beza Gebre (drumset). Guitar, bass, keys, and drums fuse to form a rhythmically intricate lattice of propulsive licks, snaking leads, and hypnotizing grooves, punctuated by the rapid-fire attack of the sabar drums. Live shows are highlighted by the explosive energy of Ngom’s dance moves, fusing his Kaolack roots with a Michael Jackson flair. Their debut album, entitled M’bolo, captures the fiery spirit of their live shows as well as the incantations of their more introspective and meditative chansons.
