Jeanines is a New York City/Western Massachusetts-based indie pop trio whose deceptively simple and infectious tunes have found a worldwide audience, partly thanks to their 2022 LP released via legendary indie label Slumberland (Velocity Girl, Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Stereolab, etc.). Their indie sound is something of a pastiche of the best elements of the past (The Smiths, Sarah Records) filtered through head songwriter Alicia Hyman’s melancholic songwriting style.

bobbie is lo-fi ambient bedroom pop from Western Massachusetts. Their ethereal dream pop comes through in a wash of guitar chords, plucked stringed, electronic effects and rhythms, and vocal harmonies that wrap the audience in gorgeous melodies. Fans of A.R. Kane or My Bloody Valentine should take note.

Producer, cellist, and singer Laura Wolf picks apart genres and stitches them back together again. On NPR Music’s All Songs Considered, Bob Boilen called her a “classical musician in love with sound manipulations ... she learned to master the art of bedroom recording." The result is her signature off-kilter chamber-pop arrangements packed with delicious sound design. Sometimes saturated with cello and driven by synths and programmed drums, Laura’s pop-collages embrace glitchy sound design, orchestral fragments, and lighter-than-air vocals. Her live performances, a visual as much as an auditory experience, blend analog, digital, and whimsical experimentalism.

Free. Bring a picnic and your own seating.
