"...Think Sam Beam meets Vashti Bunyan; hushed, comforting,
and ultimately, beautiful and calming. In other words, just what I
needed." – gorillavsbear
"Spider is Jane Herships' folk project. Her tunes have the quality you
look for in music if you've been under the spell of artists like Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley and Cowboy Junkies. Intense, poignant, delicate and somewhat
dreamy, Spider's beautiful songs remind us that the strength of our
thoughts and emotions might not be very noisy but can be very powerful
indeed." - thedelimagazine
“If there is any justice in the world, the throngs of bearded and bead encrusted modern free folk freaksand forest maidens that make up the new weird underground will bow down before Jane Herships, the woman who is Spider..." - Aquarius Records
We are very pleased to have Spider (Jane Herships) coming to our humble venue. the capsule reviews above will give you a good idea about what to expect....the kind of beautiful and quiet music that is instantly nostalgic, evoking such a lovely emotive response...pant-wettingly good!

I NEED SLEEP
"A POPPY FEEL THAT ALL OF US OTHER WEIRDOS ARE ABLE TO APPRECIATE AND SWALLOW. THERE'S NO WAY TO TELL WHAT THESE GUYS ARE THINKING OR FEELING, JUST A VERY OBVIOUS DISPLAY OF HOW THEY'RE REACTING TO IT ALL." - SEAN MOELLER @ DAYTROTTER.COM
THE BAND'S LIVE PERFORMANCE IS VERY PERCUSSION-BASED, WITH RANDOM HITS ON VIRTUALLY ANYTHING THAT WILL MAKE A SOUND. CALL IT MESSY OR CHAOTIC OR DISJOINTED AT TIMES, BUT WHATEVER IT IS, IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING." - TODD MILLER @ NEW CITY MAGAZINE
"WITH AN ATYPICAL ARRAY OF INSTRUMENTATION AND EXTENSIVE FOCUS ON PERCUSSION, I NEED SLEEP'S QUIRKY AND EXCLAMATORY MELODIES AND COLLABORATIVE VOCALS ARE DEFYING CONVENTION AT EVERY TURN." - JER COLE @ THE NEWS SENTINEL
"THE BAND MEMBERS OF I NEED SLEEP HAVE AN ENERGY AND ATTITUDE ABOUT THEMSELVES THAT CAN BE DESCRIBED AS SELF-CONFIDENT AND WHACKY." - JOSH ZANGER @ LOSTATSEA.NET
The Gazelles are a new local band featuring members of the Bangers, Small Framed Boy and Thieves. The duo create great homages to garage and early girl group sensibilities but with a decidedly fresh slant. peppy, soulful, punkish and poppy. so so good.
THIS IS GOING TO BE A GREAT DIVERSE SHOW. COME SHOW YOUR LOVE AND HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!
