Celebrate Pride with three of Boston's best queer singer-songwriters in the heart of the city! This FREE showcase starts right after the parade in the Boston Public Library's central courtyard in Copley Square. Relax and take in the music, sunshine, and community.
Home Despot is a guitar-slinging lyricist from Somerville, MA. They combine their love of literature, language, and protest into gritty songs from the heart. In perpetual genre crisis, watch them as they skirt the edge of blues, punk, and gloom folk in search of the answers to the unanswerable.
Anjimile is a queer and trans songmaker/lover boy with a heart of gold based in Boston, MA. The essence of their music is a gooey center of warmth and tenderness informed by the power of their intersectional identities. Anjimile is an NPR Music Artist to Watch in 2019, and they are the winner of WBUR's Favorite Massachusetts Entry to the Tiny Desk Contest 2018. Their new EP, 'Maker Mixtape', is out now.
Phil and the Flying Leap re-weaves the tapestry of Western popular song, marrying early jazz, French chanson, Golden-Age musical theater, and bluesy, radio-ready Americana. Songwriter Phil Berman's lyrics usher the Great American Songbook into our hyper/dis-connected 21st century reality, crafting joyfully queer songs to navigate, question, and affirm the human heart in an increasingly absurd digital world.
