Patrick Watson
Patrick Watson
Released worldwide on Domino and Secret City in April of this year, Adventures In Your Own Backyard,... was made at home after a grueling five-year run that saw Patrick and his band (bassist Mishka Stein, guitarist Simon Angell and drummer Robbie Kuster) tour the world in support of two critically-acclaimed and successful albums, including the Polaris award-winning Close To Paradise. During this time, Patrick also contributed to Ma Fleur, the 2007 album from The Cinematic Orchestra, co-writing and singing on a sizeable portion of the record.

In Patrick’s own words, Adventures… is an effort on the band’s part to “make the kind of music we would want to listen to at home.” The album’s title is a nod to this sentiment and to the fact that it was recorded almost entirely in Watson’s apartment in Montreal, unlike his previous efforts which were sprawling recordings in both geography and arrangements.

In spite of the relatively spartan settings in which to record, Adventures… is equally as ambitious as Watson’s previous efforts and a thing of dynamic beauty. The result is an album that is still ripe with the touchstones one has come to expect from Patrick Watson and his collaborators, but permeated with a greater sense of patience and confidence. Adventures in Your Own Backyard is an attempt by Watson and the band to simplify their sights—to make music a bit more close to home in every sense of the phrase.
2011 album Red Planet made Rolling Stone's 'Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011'

Mojo Magazine: "Glowing, Warm, Triumphant"

Arborea is a musical duo from Maine, formed in the summer of 2005 by wife and husband Shanti Curran and Buck Curran.
Since 2007 they've toured extensively throughout the US, UK, and Europe, curated two various artists compilations; We are All One, In the Sun: A Tribute to Robbie Basho and Leaves of Life, and released several full length albums.

Their latest Red Planet made Rolling Stone's Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011 (David Fricke), Top Vinyl Pick in Mojo, Portland Phoenix Top Ten Albums of 2011, Uncut Magazine's Top 100 Albums of 2011, and Editors Top Pick in Guitar Player Magazine.

"If you could take a shiver and slow it down so that it lasted for 50 minutes, you'd have Red Planet, the fourth album from Arborea. It's folk music that runs through your veins ice cold, but in a way that's so compelling and irresistible you can't help be moved by it. Red Planet is released by Portland label Strange Attractors Audio House, but Arborea actually hail from a spot much closer to the other Portland; the husband-and-wife duo of Shanti and Buck Curran live in Maine, a state of rugged beauty, endless forests, summertime bugs the size of hummingbirds, and a cold and rocky coastline. Shanti's voice rises above sparse instrumental backing like a cool fog, and while the pair has earned comparisons to acts like Pentangle and Alela Diane, to me Arborea sounds utterly unique and entirely captivating." - Ned Lannamann, Portland Mercury
Jocie Adams (of The Low Anthem)
Jocie Adams (of The Low Anthem)
Jocie Adams, the wildly gifted multi-instrumentalist and folk mistress will open the show. Accompanied by her lush band, she proffers her songs, from plaintive to elated, as whimsical glimpses of people and places both lost and found. The singing is strange and beautiful. The trumpeting tickles your ears. The bass holds you in its arms. The harmonies surround you like siren voices bouncing off the ocean. The band members are ever in-tune with each other, and they bring you in with them.
