Last Minute Plans: Alysheba @ Quencher's Saloon

If you are looking to a break from your steady diet of indie rock head over to Quencher's Saloon tomorrow night, Sept. 14th, and check out seven-piece jazz band Alysheba. The band released their debut ep, Rattlesnake Studio Sessions, back in April. The ep was recorded and mixed by engineer Caleb Willitz at Rattlesnake Studios, and it captures the full and complex sound of the band. Alysheba mixes traditional jazz, improvisational, and rock undertones. The live session lasted 6 hours, and was mixed down perfectly. This album is a refreshing change of pace.

Alysheba is performing tonight (Sept 14th) at Quencher's Saloon at 9pm.


Looking for Home

This Friday past Friday, Matt Ryd celebrated the release of his much anticipated debut album Looking for Home with a show at Schubas. The album features the song "Healed" which appeared on the TV show Scrubs. Matt has that songwriter's, the ability to create catchy hooks and melodies out of nowhere.
