Rooftop + Beats: Sea Level (aka Dan Capaldi) & The Memorial Skylight

Sea Level & The Memorial Skylight remains an ever changing, polymorphous presentation of obsessively arranged sample based music from the heart and soul of Maine based music producer Dan Capaldi. WIth a tendency towards moody electro-triphop grooves and classic pop sensibility, the style of Sea Level is irrelevant; a bi-product of a specific, yet unlimited intention. Combining both live and sample based looping as well as a unique assortment of live instrumentation, sounds are creatively mixed together using an elaborate collection of gear with no need for a laptop.  For more info please visit:

Rooftop Concert Series: LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike + Miles Hewitt (of the Solars)

LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike is the project and performance moniker of Rhode Island-based songwriter William Orchard.  By the time LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike had gained a reputation of prolific lunacy and a non-traditional, whimsical approach to folk music, he had become part a larger circle of artists (including The Brazen Youth) in New England known as the Ashlawn Creative Collective – located at the 300 year old Ashlawn Farm in the small town of Lyme, CT, where he recorded his first album. Following years of extensive touring of the U.S. in band and solo settings, LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike’s discography consists of 99 EP’s and Albums, totaling nearly 500 songs. Orchard’s 100th record, Big Blue Butterflies is a story of the painful transformation from child to adult, fantasy to reality, and the limbo in the middle – all within the context of chaotic America in 2018. We are more than thrilled to welcome this unique songwriter to the Roof!  Joining him on the bill is Miles Hewitt, best known as a member of the Boston indie rock sensations the Solars.  Don't miss this heavyweight acoustic evening of music performed by prolific songwriters!  For more info please visit:

How we mature and become comfortable and fair to ourselves, how we learn to love ourselves and love others,” she said. “I want to sing songs that are empowering,” says BOYD.  Joining Phantom Vanity on the night is JanaeSound.  JanaeSound harnesses an unforgettable voice that is known to stir the soul. The powerhouse rock singer hails from St. Louis where she began cultivating her love for music at the tender age of 9 through the Opera Theatre of St. Louis.

Xander Nelson & Leaders Of The Shift

Xander Nelson has quickly become one of the most sought after artists in the New England area.  He has garnered quite the buzz after releasing his debut EP "A Dull Roar" in 2017.  His brand of blues infused indie-pop rock has helped him build a solid following as well as some serious fan loyalty.  Joining him on this heavy hitting double bill is New York City's Leaders Of The Shift.  Individually the members of Leaders of the Shift are highly sought-after musicians who’ve recorded and toured the world with a variety of music icons. Together John Shannon (vocals/guitar), MJ Lambert (drums) and Ben Geis (bass) craft earth-shattering anthemic rock with vibrant depth and a forceful punch. The powerhouse trio’s defiant yet atmospheric sound is perfectly captured on its debut 7th Direction where “Kobra” the first single received it’s world premiere on Loudwire. “Dreams” the second single off of 7th Direction was named Number 5 Song Of The Year on Lima Peru’s top rock radio station Radio Doble Nueve out of a list of 150 international mainstream acts. The Huffington Post premiered the video for the third single “Consecrate” and reported, “Together, the music and the video provide a spiritual aura that is subtle, unpredictable and claims no specific religious color. But still, it’s there, like a curious field of suppressed energy. It’s almost shamanistic.” The album was recorded at Brooklyn’s Mission Sound and Manhattan’s JRock Studios produced by Jamie Siegel (Taking Back Sunday, Santana).  Don't miss this fantastic evening of guitar driven original indie rock!

TIX AT https://www.eventbrite.com/e/chris-ross-the-north-wsgs-the-wolff-sisters-the-last-cavalry-tickets-48838379909 $5ADV $8DOOR

Chris Ross (2014 Portland Phoenix "Best Songwriter") spent the better part of a decade tucked away on the coast of Maine developing his voice as a writer. Inside the arsenal of tracks he’s penned, one finds dangerous, hard-hitting reflections; stories of love, life and longing, appealing because they’re so real. Tinted with an appetite for self-destruction, his writing style is smooth and eloquent while remaining sincere to genuine grit of experience.  The musicians forming his band, The North, provide a masterful blend of country + rock & roll swagger, a winning combination with Ross’s candid storytelling. Anchored by Ryan Curless (drums) and Caleb Sweet (bass), the rhythm section hits where you want it to, and hard – a fine tuned compatibility of artistic bonds reaching back to early childhood perceptible to the naked ear. Rounding out The North is guitarist Zachary Bence, a virtuoso with the ability to transition between ear-scorching guitar solos and beautiful sonic swells on the drop of a dime, his grace as a musician as boundless as his contribution to the band’s steady concord.
Join us as we welcome Chris Ross & The North for their Bayside Bowl debut.  Joining them on the night is the gritty and raw folk-rock outfit The Wolff Sisters & The Last Cavalry, who first broke into the Boston music scene as an acoustic trio. With haunting harmonies and songs reminiscent of washed up wanderers on New England’s salty coasts, Rebecca, Rachael, and Kat stole Boston’s heart as The Wolff Sisters (yes, they’re really sisters).  In 2015, the trio amplified their performance with the addition of The Last Cavalry. With Joe Soldati on bass and Will Rodriguez on drums, the band seeks to bring that loose blues, roots, and rock n’ roll sound back into the forefront of the music scene.  Don't miss this monster line up of outlaw country, roots and Americana.  The Show is ALL-AGES and tickets are $5adv, $8 at the door. Tickets are available at:

Balkun Brothers w/s/g Xander Nelson

balkan.png

Internationally touring rock n’ roll band, Balkun Brothers, is made up of older brother, Steve, on guitar, vocals and thumb-bone bass, alongside younger brother, Nick ‘The Hammer’ on drums. The band, formed just under a decade ago in 2010, is reinventing the term “power duo” with their heavy hitting, new-age brand of psychedelic rock, blues and jam-funk.  Known for their explosive live shows that go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye, the brothers from Hartford grew up studying the likes of Son House, Johnny Winter, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters, then smashing those together with Motorhead, Primus, Rage Against the Machine, The Doors, Motley Crue and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In a day and age where the world is in dire need of true rock n’ roll, the Balkun Brothers are bringing the people what they want: hard-nosed, dirty, mammoth sounds that have been invading the ear-holes of fans from coast to coast across the globe and changing lives one head bang at a time. Following in the footsteps of their delta-blues, rock and metal forefathers, Steve and Nick are crushing stages of upwards of 250 shows per year. Known for marathon concerts that can last up to 5 hours, the two brothers have been developing a sound that few can compare to or even attempt to comprehend.Steve’s self-built, custom baritone and resonator guitars are on full throttle from the first note he plays each night on stage through BOTH his guitar and bass amps simultaneously, while Nick’s thunderous drum beats meet his brother at center stage for one colossal monster truck of a band. Their shattering low end has been catching the eyes of many who can’t seem to understand how a duo can make so much noise.  Balkun Brothers take the White Stripes and the Black Keys and flips them upside down with a musical range that spans into hip hop and funk fusion without missing a beat. Audiences are left speechless at live shows that serve up smashed guitars, dinosaur-like power and lyrical content that is more relevant in today’s society than ever before. Joining them on the night is Portland's indie blues rock sensation, Xander Nelson.  FOR MORE INFO PLEASE VISIT:

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra w/ QUAD

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra w/ QUAD

Multi-instrumentalist and composer Jonathan Scales is likely the most innovative steel drummer on the planet. His stunning, virtuosic technique is obvious and apparent to any who have seen him perform, but it is his mesmerizing compositions and tasteful, avant-garde improvisation that set him apart from the pack. Scales’ unmistakably unique approach to an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropicalia establishes him as something of an outlier. Whereas his talent and creativity could have been focused on other instruments he plays, such as saxophone, he fell in love with the sound of the steel pans. He may also have unconsciously seen it as a challenge… to transform the instrument in much the same way that his musical inspiration Bela Fleck did with the banjo. In fact, Driftwood Magazine made a similar observation, when it wrote that “Scales is to steel pans what Béla Fleck is to the banjo—an über innovator.” Jonathan Scales Fourchestra has a fluid line-up, allowing Jonathan to work with a wide range of artists, and in the past few years he has earned the respect of some of the most impressive players across multiple genres. The Fourchestra’s November 2016 tour of the Southeast is a prime example of this, showcasing bass wizardMonoNeon (Prince), drummer Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy) and percussionist Weedie Braimah (The Nth Power). As with the tours, Scales’ recordings have also featured special guest performances from the likes of Victor WootenHoward LevyJeff Coffin and Kofi Burbridge.  With an ear for myriad global sounds, it only makes sense for Jonathan Scales Fourchestra to expand beyond North America. They toured Central America, the Caribbean, Japan and Europe in the Fall of 2015, and a performance in The Netherlands landed them a spot on the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival in the Summer of 2016, which anchored another tour of Europe.   Jonathan Scales Fourchestra makes their Portland, ME debut at Bayside Bowl on JULY 20.  Joining them on the night is the eclectic cello/drum duo, QUAD.
