About This Event

Bedroom, Tom Curless & the 46%, Jake Benjamin [Ages 21+, Doors Open 7pm, $10 Advance, $12 Day of Show]

 

Bedroom

Bedroom band is an indie rock group hailing from Brooklyn, New York that combines elements of folk-rock and 60s pop.
The band’s mission is to create songs that are equal parts joyful and introspective. It started as a few friends practicing in an NYC bedroom, and took off when lead singer-songwriters Lee Kaplowitz and Jared Levinson met at the hospital where they both worked. Rounded out by bassist Josh Tauber, drummer Dan Fleishaker, and violinist Zahrah Taufique, they’ve taken their music out of the bedroom and into the world

Tom Curless & the 46%

Tom Curless is a Detroit area based musician and songwriter who has released several critically acclaimed records over his long career. As well as establishing himself within the Chicago music scene in the early 2000’s, he released seven records under the moniker Your Gracious Host. Tom finally found a band in 2017 which coalesced around the last record which he released under his own name called Songs of Movement. Made up of talented musicians from the Detroit music scene who all are established in their own bands, they christened themselves Tom Curless & the 46%. They gelled quickly and played many successful shows supporting that release all over the midwest.

This rocking unit headed into Tempoermill studios with producer Dave Feeny last year to record some new songs. They just wrapped a brand new album due out in spring 2020 called Almost ready for the Future which will be released (once again) on Detroit based label Futureman records. It is a full band effort and displays a more “live in the studio” approach than previous releases  and all the better for it.

Jake Benjamin

Originally from Saddle River, NJ, indie-alternative artist Jake Benjamin’s overall sensibility is a “beyond pop” aesthetic that favors evocative feelings and engaging storylines over punchy pop songcraft. He is equally comfortable composing with a loop pedal and working songs out through leading large and small band ensembles. Jake was at a personal and artistic crossroads when he wrote his latest body of work, collectively known as Broken Stars. This artistically adventurous and boldly vulnerable opus was inspired by reading The Letters of Vincent van Gogh, a collection of correspondences from Van Gogh to his brother, Theo.

“I decided that the songs on this record should tie into themes of the psyche and the human spirit,” the NYC-based artist details. “Some of the songs were written from famous artists’ quotes, and others were written from my own experiences with anxiety, depression, relationships, and sexuality.” He continues: “Today, I’m open to showing all the aspects of my life, including my queerness.”
