About Dorchester
map
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

FREEMAN at The Sinclair
FREEMAN at The Sinclair



Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 8:00pm





Listening to Marvelous Clouds, Aaron Freeman’s 2012 debut under his own name, fans might have felt that he was ignoring an elephant in his room—a drug-and-alcohol-related onstage flame-out that made viral headlines the year before. But Clouds, a deceptively chill Rod McKuen covers record, was just a warm-up for the artist once known as Gene Ween. In the opening minutes of FREEMAN, the self-titled debut from his new band, Freeman addresses addiction and its aftermath with the combination of merciless self-inventory and artful songcraft that earned Ween one of the most devoted fan bases in contemporary pop. This song, the unmistakably autobiographical “Covert Discretion,” is a quiet shocker. “Save your judgments for someone else,” Freeman sings. “Be grateful I saved me from myself.”

As bitter as it sounds, the track clears the air. FREEMAN represents a new beginning— Aaron Freeman’s first album of original material since disbanding Ween and getting sober—but it isn’t a record mired in its maker’s private struggles. It’s simply a collection of gorgeous, subtly offbeat songs—in other words, a continuation of the thread that runs through the entire Ween catalog. The lush psychedelic pop of “The English and Western Stallion”; the melancholy plea of “More Than the World”; the unflappable, Plastic Ono Band–esque blues-rock of “Gimmie One More”—these are songs that bear the unmistakable Aaron Freeman stamp.

And to hear Freeman tell it, they wouldn’t have been possible if he’d stayed in his old band. “There was so much of ‘Aaron had to break up Ween because of addiction’ and ‘Aaron broke up Ween in order to pursue his solo work,’ ” he says. “But I broke up Ween because we were at a creative dead end way before our last record, La Cucaracha. Basically we were going through the motions, becoming a showcase band.”

Freeman stresses that FREEMAN is more about renewal than turning his back on the past. “I want this record to pay homage to Ween,” he says. “These are the same songs I would’ve written in Ween—except without [ex-bandmate] Mickey.” Several tracks hark back to the role-playing that was a hallmark of Freeman’s back-catalog: “(For a While) I Couldn’t Play My Guitar Like a Man,” a badass blues-rock meditation on lost mojo; or “Black Bush,” a trippy, heavily stylized ode to the natural beauty of Freeman’s recently adopted hometown of Woodstock.

But there’s also a fresh perspective here, the sound of a shadow lifting. “Delicate Green,” which savors life’s everyday blessings, is one of the sweetest, most sincere songs Freeman has written. And “All the Way to China” and “El Shaddai” reference Jewish texts—Kabbalah readings and James A. Michener’s The Source, respectively—that guided him through his darkest times. “There’s a lot of spiritual stuff on here because that really helped me,” Freeman says. “I listened to a lot of reggae—’Jah gonna help me through Babylon,’ you know? I listened to a lot of Paul McCartney too, and I thought, if he can do this, break up the fucking Beatles, I can certainly break up Ween and be okay.”

Aaron Freeman has also turned his back on substance abuse, a fact that might concern fans who mistake intoxication for inspiration. “I wrote the songs I wrote in Ween despite all the drugs and alcohol I was doing, not because,” Freeman says. “Most people don’t get sobriety at all. They assume you’re this better-than-thou monk sitting on a mountain, judging everybody. It’s not that way: You have to let everybody do their thing, and you get weirder.” A song like FREEMAN’s “Golden Monkey,” which rivals Ween’s underrated Quebec for sheer mind-warping brilliance, proves Freeman’s point.

In order to get to FREEMAN, Aaron Freeman had to make a clean break. “If I hadn’t left my partnership, there wouldn’t be anything,” he explains. “I’d probably be dead too. I know that at the end of the day, this is the best thing I could’ve done for me and for every Ween fan.” FREEMAN, an album that distills the Aaron Freeman aesthetic—built on equal parts wonder and malaise, frankness and mysticism, defiance and vulnerability—to its headiest essence, proves his point. This man, known for so long by another name, is finally free

ALEX & SIERRA at The Sinclair
ALEX & SIERRA at The Sinclair



Saturday, September 6, 2014 - 2:00pm





Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton met on the beach in Florida when they were in high school, not realizing at the time that it was the fortuitous beginning of a musical journey. Alex was a musician, inspired by the infectious music and optimistic attitude of Jason Mraz, while Sierra was a competitive dancer with a love for all things artistic. The pair eventually moved from a friendship to a relationship, always singing together for fun in the car. Every week Sierra would drive over an hour to see Alex perform at venues around Daytona and New Smyrna Beach and it was only a matter of time before he began calling her up onstage to sing. As this continued for a year, the collaboration became more and more significant and eventually transitioned into Alex & Sierra. 

“We realized we could do more than just a song or two,” Alex says. “It felt like more than that. I’ve always had confidence in music – that’s the only thing I could ever really see myself doing. And then when we started performing together I realized I would get more applause when Sierra was onstage. That made me feel even more confident in performing music. It really was something special.”

In early 2013, the duo filmed themselves singing the Civil Wars’ “Barton Hollow” in front of a rubber ducky shower curtain in Alex’s college dorm as an audition for The X Factor. Months passed and the group continued performing around Florida, including a show outside Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran’s Amway Arena performance in Orlando in the spring of 2013 for top 40 station, XL 106.7 where Sierra was an intern. In May, news arrived that Alex & Sierra had scored a spot on The X Factor, which they eventually won in December. The experience quickly took the pair to the next level, expanding their musical skills as they offered fan-favorite renditions of songs like Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble” and Sheeran’s “Give Me Love.” Alex & Sierra’s versions of A Great Big World’s “Say Something” and Sara Bareilles’ “Gravity” reached No. 1 on iTunes. Overall, their X Factor numbers have sold over one million copies and earned 69 million views on YouTube. 

“The thing we lived by on the show was making sure what we did represented us,” Alex says. “It didn’t matter if we made it one week or until the end, it all had to be what we would do after the fact. The show was amazing because it’s a great platform for musicians who want to be musicians in the long run. It was a place to start our career.”

Only a few weeks after becoming the first group to win The X Factor, Alex & Sierra headed back to Los Angeles to start work on their debut album. The idea was to create original songs that reflected the duo’s thoughtful, amiable aesthetic. Their first writing session yielded over 20 songs, eight of which appear on their debut album It’s About Us. The lyrics were particularly important to the musicians, who wanted to thread the songs together with an overall idea. 

“We wanted to develop our own sound, rather than make other people’s songs work for our voices, like we did in the past,” Sierra says. “We knew what we liked and didn’t like, and that helped guide the way. The lyrics have always been really important as well. We wanted them to make sense and be meaningful so that others could get lost in the songs and feel the messages. As we kept writing we eventually chose to call our album It’s About Us because the thing that connects all of the songs is exactly that- us and our own experiences.”

Alex & Sierra worked with various musicians and producers, including Toby Gad, Sam Hollander, Julian Bunetta, John Ryan, John Shanks and Martin Johnson, over the spring of 2014 in Los Angeles and Orlando. The pair spent time writing with Mraz at his home in Southern California where Mraz played a song that eventually became the album’s interlude, also titled “It’s About Us.” “All For You,” a jazzy love song, is the first song Alex and Sierra ever wrote together. “Jazz is one of our favorite genres,” Alex notes. “It’s a really important song for us.” The first single, “Scarecrow,” is a rollicking folk pop stomper that perfectly melds the singers’ voices. “We feel like there’s something for everyone on the album,” Sierra says. “The songs are all different – some are pop songs, some are quieter ballads. But they all fit together like puzzle pieces that make up one piece of work.”

All these years later since their meeting on the beach, Alex and Sierra remain connected to Florida, where they still live with their families. The pair received the key to Daytona in December and the week of Christmas was dubbed “Alex & Sierra Week” in the city. The sunny sensibility of their hometowns resonates through both the music and the musicians’ attitude around it. “It helps us mentally and emotionally to stay connected to Florida and our families,” Sierra says. “Life is so good there that it makes it easy for us to remember that this world is beautiful and that we’ve gotta stay grateful for everything we have.”

“In the end, our ultimate goal is to have fun and show people that you can have a career having fun doing something you love,” Alex adds. “We want to have fun and be as successful as possible just to show people that if you follow your passion and dedicate your time to it, it will pay off. You can do something you enjoy.”

James Keelaghan and Dave Gunning at Passim
James Keelaghan and Dave Gunning at Passim



Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 8:00pm





Called Canada’s finest singer-songwriter by one of the most respected and lauded music journalists of the last 50 years, James Keelaghan is an artist who has proven to be a man for all seasons.As the calendar pages have turned, for almost a quarter of a century now, this poet laureate of the folk and roots music world has gone about his work with a combination of passion, intent and intensity, and curiosity.

Fusing his insatiable appetite for finding the next unique storyline Keelaghan also forges his pieces with brilliantly defined craftsmanship and a monogrammed artistic vision, making him one of the most distinctive and readily identifiable voices of not only the Canadian scene, but as a member of the international singer-songwriter community.

Armed with a songbook that has enlightened and enthralled, and been embraced, by audiences around the world, Keelaghan’s life as an artist is one that is a perpetual journey on so many levels.

Most importantly it’s a journey that has invited fans of literate and layered songwriting to be a part of his artistic expeditions, some that weave their way through marvelously etched stories of a historical nature with underlying universal themes , and others that mine the depths of the soul and the emotional trails of human relations.¨His masterful story telling, over the course of nine recordings, has been part of the bedrock of his success, earning Keelaghan his share of nominations and awards, and acclaim from  Australia to Scandinavia.The necessity to write has always been a double-edged sword.”

http://keelaghan.com/

There are stories that wash over you like a tide, and then there are stories that grab you by the heart.  Dave Gunning has made a point of finding the latter and wrapping them up in song since he broke upon the East Coast music scene in Canada back in 1997.  The Pictou County, Nova Scotia born and bred singer-songwriter and working class hero has built up from humble beginnings to a point where his name is regularly included in conversation with artists such as David Francey, James Keelaghan, Ron Hynes, Stan Rogers, Bruce Cockburn and Gordon Lightfoot.  Writing from a sonic menu that includes flavors of Irish, Scottish,  folk and country musical styles, Dave transcends genre with songs that fill your senses and touch your soul.

Dave’s 10th album No More Pennies is inarguably his finest collection of songs to date. The record celebrates the journey and pays tribute to the trials and tribulations, the highs and lows and the goodness at the heart of people. On No More Pennies, Dave has proven to be a deft arranger and a songwriting master craftsman with co-written gems with George Canyon, Jim Dorie, David Francey (duet), Lennie Gallant, Bruce Guthro, Karine Polwart (duet) and record producer, Jamie Robinson. The lead signature track, These Hands co-written with George Canyon is a ‘call to action’ style song reminiscent of classic Pete Seeger to inspire us to make good in this world. Dave and his song, These Hands were awarded Song of the Year at the 2013 East Coast Music Awards and picked up nominations for Folk Recording and Fans Choice Entertainer of the Year.

Anais Mitchell at Passim



Monday, October 13, 2014 - 7:00pm





Anaïs Mitchell is first and foremost a storyteller. As a Vermont- and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, Mitchell recorded for Ani Difranco’s Righteous Babe Records for several years before starting her own Wilderland label in 2012. Among her recorded work are four full-length albums, including 2010's sensationally-reviewed Hadestown– a folk opera based on the Orpheus myth– and 2012's Young Man in America, which was described by the UK’s Independent as ‘an epic tale of American becoming’. Mitchell has headlined solo and band performances worldwide as well as supporting tours for artists like Bon Iver, Ani Difranco, and the Low Anthem (all of whom appear as guest singers on Hadestown). At the moment, she’s touring with friend and collaborator Jefferson Hamer in support of Child Ballads, a co-arranged collection of traditional Celtic and British Isles ballads. If there’s a common thread in Mitchell’s work– from her earliest acoustic records, to the opera, to this new chapter– it’s that she’s as interested in the world around her as the one inside her. She has a way of tackling big themes with the same emotional intimacy most artists use to describe their inner lives. “That’s why,” as one journalist put it, “there’s a sexual ambiguity about her work and why, even in her most intimate moments, she never sounds like a confessional songwriter.”

Dom Flemons, Grace & Tony open at Passim



Friday, October 10, 2014 - 7:00pm





Dom Flemons is the "American Songster," pulling from traditions of old-time folk music to create new sounds. Having performed music professionally since 2005, he has played live for over one million people just within the past three years. As part of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, which he co-founded with Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson, he has played at a variety of festivals spanning from the Newport Folk Festival to Bonnaroo, in addition to renowned venues such as the Grand Ole Opry.

Raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Dom’s involvement with music began by playing percussion in his high school band. After picking up the guitar and harmonica as a teenager, he began to play in local coffee houses and became a regular performer on the Arizona folk music scene. Dom wrote his own songs and produced 25 albums of singer-songwriters and slam poets in the Phoenix area, including six albums of his own, during this time. He took a brief break from playing music in order to pursue slam poetry (he majored in English at Northern Arizona University) and performed in two national poetry slams in 2002 and 2003. Aside from exploring slam poetry, he spent his early adulthood listening to records and discovering a love of folk music, blues, jazz, jug band music, country music and ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll. Dom became interested in folk musicians such as Phil Ochs, Dave Van Ronk and Mike Seeger, as well as musicians such as Mississippi John Hurt, Howlin’ Wolf, Hank Williams, Chuck Berry and Carl Perkins. After stepping away from the slam poetry scene, he rekindled his interest in music, this time focusing on the old-time blues music of the pre-WWII era.

Friday, October 24, 2014 - 8:00pm





Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), acoustic-duo Ryanhood have performed more than 800 shows in 42 U.S. states over the past decade. They’ve shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, Lifehouse, and even been tweeted about by Ellen DeGeneres.

Ryanhood began as humble street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market, when they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene. Campus Activities Magazine would soon name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.”

Their airtight vocal harmonies, along with Ryan’s rapidly precise guitar riffs and Cameron’s soulfully rich lead vocals, create the pleasantly distinguishable “Ryanhood” sound.

They have since relocated back to their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).

Cold Chocolate is creating an exciting and unique new sound in the world of Americana: fusing bluegrass and roots with a dash of funk. With original tunes and technical prowess, this four-piece band from Boston is rocking audiences with guitar, banjo, upright bass, drums, and four-part harmony. Guitarist/songwriter Ethan Robbins began his bluegrass career at Oberlin College where he met upright bassist Kirsten Lamb and began to explore how this hard-driving fast-paced genre could be stretched. Now joined by the funk-inflected banjo of James McIver and the loose-wristed Ariel Bernstein on drums, Cold Chocolate has established itself as a force in the Americana genre.

The Spiders (Die Spinnen) at Harvard Film Archives



Saturday, August 23, 2014 - 7:00pm





Directed by Fritz Lang. With Carl de Vogt, Ressel Orla, Lil Dagover

Germany 1919-20, digital video, b/w, silent, 173 min

The Spiders was conceived as a four-film cycle—like such contemporary dystopian “franchises” as Twilight and The Hunger Games—although only the first two of the series were ever made. Even these were considered lost films for decades until a Czech print surfaced in the 1960s and the films were restored, with some consultation from Lang. Predating his later interest with technology, law and criminality, these early films instead illustrate his fascination with the exotic, which would surface again in Destiny and then submerge until the very end of his career. In place of the resolute modernism of Lang’s later cinema is a fascination with the picturesque and with age-of-exploration action sequences involving canoes and rowboats, rather than airplanes and rockets. Indeed, the film’s dashing hero, Kay Hoog, is generally acknowledged to be one of the inspirations for Indiana Jones. In these two films, Hoog journeys from San Francisco to Central America to England battling the sinister crime syndicate whose name provides the title for the series.
