  2. Wednesday - Landmarks Orchestra: Rhapsody in Green
    "I LOVE this first program of theirs: Mendelssohn's "Hebrides" overture (swoon), Hovhaness "And God Created Great Whales" was one of my high school jams, and does indeed include whale songs. Whale songs under the stars, you guys! And the evening ends with Debussy's swirling, translucent, ecstatic waterworld 'La Mer.'" - Sarah Darling http://bit.ly/1O4thAQ
  3. Thursday - String & Fader vs. Audrey Harrer feat. the
    "I've been looking forward to this for months: composer-vocalist-harpist and "experimentalist," Audrey Harrer. Her solo work is something like avant musical theater storytelling and I can only imagine what an evening of full treatments will be like. (Not to mention the fact that Christopher Barnes of Gem Club will be premiering a work for string quintet at this event as well.)" - Mali Sastri http://bit.ly/1TATBGk
  4. Thursday: Harborwalk Sounds: RIPE
    RIPE performed at our first Trill Presents back in December. We can't wait for this outdoor show at the ICA. "The seven-piece Boston-based band is heavily influenced by psychedelic music, evident in their vintage baja hoodies, afros, scruffy beards, and funk instrumentals." http://bit.ly/1K6fdpF
  5. Friday - Scorched Ear: Sissy Spacek, Eaten, Vehement Caress, Mayor Daley, Demonbrother, Sediment Club, Negative One
    "Boston Hassle continues their periodic eardrum pummeling with Scorched Ear. Featuring a bevy of heavy thrashers, harsh noise tweakers and post-punk demons, this tinnitus-inducer attacks the freaks and shuns the weak." - Chris Collins http://bit.ly/1gAm2pL
  6. Saturday - Little Tybee
    "Experimental, progressive folk-rock, with a touch of chamber pop, jazz, and even disco thrown in for good measure. Strong musicianship, plenty of soaring male falsetto, and a breezy, fresh, propulsive sound, out of Atlanta, GA." - Mali Sastri http://bit.ly/1gAm2pM
  7. Saturday - Borromeo Quartet
    "The Borromeos are always pushing boundaries in various ways, making sure to carefully consider... everything. It's cool to see that their summer series at the Gardner features some of the string quartet repertoire that rewards serious contemplation. Bartok 5, a freaking masterpiece of spiritual geometry. Beethoven 132, a philosophical exploration of life as it can be known." - Sarah Darling http://bit.ly/1CCjZLV
  8. Sunday - ZUMIX & Allston Pudding Present: Quilt w/Miyagi and The Kids
    "Head across the bay for an early evening chiller of a show put on by local music nerds Allston Pudding and amazing children's music-oriented non-profit Zumix. Boston psych folk feelers Quilt sway along with Zumix youth house ensemble Miyagi & The Kids playing classic rock covers along the pier." - Chris Collins http://bit.ly/1O4thAR
