Oh, The Stories We Can Tell!

Boston in the early nineties: we were all there, playing in tiny clubs with squeaky chairs, making our way in the Boston music scene, looking for our names in the small font Boston Phoenix concert announcements, and finding our friends at open mics where the tables would empty as soon as people saw us walking in with guitars. We often collaborated and sometimes competed.

I had planned to be a playwright, but the morning after I learned that my go-to theater had closed, I went to a song swap at somebody's house and met Jim Infantino, Vance Gilbert, Brian Doser, Jon Svetkey, and Chris Chandler (and many others). That was it! Many New Moon Coffeehouses, Half Moon Coffeehouses, and Full Moon Coffeehouses later (this was New England), I was swimming in the same Charles Riv-ah scene as Jim, Jonatha and Melissa. Jim was the philosopher musician, Jonatha brought her transformative harmonics and lyrics, and Melissa was at the heart of the East Coast's answer to the Riot Grrrl movement. All of us have been just about everywhere since then, and yes... the stories we could tell! I'm so grateful they could join me for this concert.
