December Calendar

XENIA RUBINOS has learned a valuable lesson - "You have to know where you come from to know where you're going" - and applied it to her remarkable music. Rubinos' work contains traces of her Afro-Caribbean roots, but when she and her band do things like use two bassists to play a counter-melody in her song "Lonely Lover," they defy classification. That's what brings me to her music: the surprises, like the unexpected change-ups she brings to the way voices are presented. It all sounds heady, even heavy, but underneath it all, she and her band lay down serious grooves designed to move both your body and your intellect. CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

XENIA RUBINOS, MY DARLING FURY & DAZEASES are coming to Strange Matter on Thursday, December 8th! CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

Many thanks to our pal Armistead Spottswoode over at WCVE's Midnight Frights for producing this cool little spot extolling our many virtues. All you dingleberries on iPhones (or any dingleberries who can't see the embedded video) should click here.

Be sure to tune in to your Community Idea Station every Saturday at midnight for Midnight Frights.
