Richard Lloyd
Iconic . . . legendary . . . unique . . . all can be used to describe Richard Lloyd, but the most accurate word might be "relevant." After a career spanning more than forty years, Richard Lloyd continues to make great records and deliver exciting live performances.

Learning from the master himself, Jimi Hendrix, Richard was among the very few pioneers of the New York underground scene, headquartered at CBGB. With Tom Verlaine, a founding member of the seminal band, Television, Richard made some of the best rock and roll records of the all time–Marquee Moon and Adventure. Striking out on his own, Richard gave us Alchemy, Field of Fire, Radiant Monkey, The Cover Doesn't Matter, and more. Richard Lloyd was also the guitar master behind Matthew Sweet, John Doe, and Rocket From the Tombs.

In preparation for a new record, Richard Lloyd is touring again with his quartet, performing selections spanning his entire career. "It is still as exciting to play live as it was when I was 27, jumping up and down on hotel beds."
Miriam and Nobody's Babies
Miriam and Nobody's Babies
Miriam Linna began her music career as the first drummer for the Cramps in 1976 New York. The Sudbury, Ontario, native went on to pound the skins for the Zantees and frat-rock luminaries the A-Bones. Linna is perhaps best known for co-founding Kicks magazine and Norton Records with her husband, the late Billy Miller.

In 2014, Linna teamed up with producer Sam Elwitt to release her first solo album, the wall-of-sound tour de force Nobody's Baby (Norton), which was lauded as the best album of 2014 and reached #1 on the influential WFMU. Linna hit the ground running in 2015 with her second solo album Down Today.

Miriam Linna will be joined onstage by her backing band Nobody's Babies, led by Sam Elwitt, with Justina Davies, Matt Fiveash, Ira Kaplan and David Lindsay.
I Am The Polish Army
I Am The Polish Army
From the privacy of a dorm room in 2005 to the streets of Brooklyn in 2016, I Am The Polish Army has come a long way since singer-guitarist Emma DeCorsey first considered the strength of her voice and the purpose behind the music floating around in her head. Between those early days trying to understand what I Am The Polish Army could be and the recent months in which the band finished their forthcoming album, DeCorsey had her heart crushed by several fellow musicians, her home studio equipment was stolen, she scraped her original thoughts for her first full-length and subsequently rewrote the bulk of the material. She also befriended two musicians (bassist Turner Stough and drummer Eric Kuby) who would forever alter the trajectory of her life.
