Berkeley-based Sis is playing Amnesia tonight to celebrate the release of their sophomore album, Gas Station Roses (Native Cat Recordings). The band, led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Jenny Gillespie Mason, has a soulful psych rock feel with Peter Gabriel and Talking Heads influences alongside Afropop and Japanese pop. Sis is composed of Mason and two members from the band Meerna, Carly Bond (electric guitar, flutes, vocals) and Rob Shelton (synths, programming) who help bring this album into the new dimensions. Come check them out tonight with Lalin St. Juste and Sitka Sun.  - Lucille Faulkner

   

Ziarra Washington, Nickel & Dime Ops, and Juwan Crawley play Revolution #43

Nickel and Dime Ops, Ziarra Washington, and Juwan Crawley make their Revolution debut on October 17, for Vol.43. This appointment with the monthly series marks a change of day and time, as the show is now held on a Thursday at 8 pm, with doors opening at 7:30 pm. What hasn't changed is the variety of genres represented in this inclusive, curated appointment with emerging NYC artists. 

Nickel and Dime OPS is a jazz-infused hip hop project based in NYC. Lyricist Nickel Killsmics performs alongside female vocalist Victoria Cave, backed by a group of jazz musicians including a powerful horn section. They have released two albums over the past six years incorporating jazzy elements with modern rap, creating a truly unique and exciting listening experience. 

With an energetic stage presence and catchy lyrics, Ziarra knows how to entertain with her contagious personality, establishing a flashy and dramatic atmosphere inspired by pop icons like Cher, Prince, and Lady Gaga. Her EP “Heart” was released this year and includes five tracks that highlight her delicate yet firm voice and songwriting styles ranging from energetic pop to electronic soul-pop. 

Actor singer-songwriter Juwan Crawley is a refreshing and invigorating artist, with a voice positively meant for Broadway. Crawley released his first EP, “Becoming” in June of this year, each track giving the listener a brief look into his robust talent.

A Deli Premiere: "In My Mind (We Were Already There)" by Devlin et. al

Sweetly-lathered in alt-soul honey is the indie music of Boston's Devlin et. al: the group's latest single “In My Mind (We Were Already There)” is sweetened by the soulful lead vocals of Amanda Lillie, which dance and sway within a brilliant indie rock vortex. The easy-listening experience brews beautifully, releasing slowly hints of the fantastic instrumental breakdown that culminates the track. Amanda, Jasper Park (bass), Andrew Vashchenko (guitar), and Pearse Devlin (drums) are all Tufts University graduates coming together from all corners of the world to create the kind of music you rarely see musicians attempt these days—classy rock. Shimmying from indie rock to indie pop to alt-soul within one track displays the group's versatility; with the glamour of groups like Alvvays and the edge of bands like The Growlers, Devlin et. al embodies indie in its way and warrants a listen or many. The group's debut record is set for October 11th, and shows throughout New England will follow. We are thrilled to premiere “In My Mind (We Were Already There)” below. - Rene Cobar
