Hail Laveau and Friends

"Hail Laveau is the collaboration between musicians Corey Cook and Emily Higgins. The two began writing songs together over the past year, with Emily handling the vocals, Corey writing the music and both contributing to the lyric writing. They finished recording an EP over the summer in New Orleans and plan on bringing the finished product to the Boston music scene. Due to the time split between Louisiana and Massachusetts, Hail Laveau has an ever-changing backing band of local musicians ready to bring the house down.

Cirkestra with Ashia and The Bison Rouge

9:30pm Ashia and The Bison Rouge (from Portland OR.) "one can't help but hear a collage of influences. Grzesik can certainly give Joanna Newsom a run for her whimsy, she possesses the old-world charm and quirky dramatics of Regina Spector and the cello-punk instincts of Bonfire Madigan, and her voice vacillates between the throaty alto of Amanda Palmer and the ethereal soprano of Maria Callas. Simply put, she's got a little bit of everything." Portland Monthly
