Caitlin Canty

Raised in Vermont and now based in NYC, singer/songwriter Caitlin Canty contributes her pure, nuanced singing to several bands in addition to maintaining an active tour schedule of her own.

Her current collaborations include co-writing and singing backing vocals for several bands, including Darlingside, a string rock band, and serving as one half of the duo Down Like Silver with Peter Bradley Adams, which released its debut EP in 2011.

We're About 9 Trio

We’re About 9 brings complex vocal harmonies and a poignant, outside-the-box songwriting approach to an upbeat, fun show.

Tickets: $18 / 16

The Elephant Revival

“Where words fail … music speaks.” That simple line atop Elephant Revival’s Facebook page contains only five words, but reveals volumes about the band’s reason for being. Music unites us in ways that no other medium can. Even when we don’t understand one another’s languages — we can be moved by a rhythm, soothed by a song. Brought together by a unified sense of purpose — the spirit of five souls working as one, in harmony, creating sounds they could never produce alone.
