Anyway Records OhioNYC CMJ Showcase
Oct 24, 2014 @ 7:30 pm| FREE
Anyway Records and OhioNYC.com have teamed up to present a free CMJ showcase on Friday, October 24 at 7:30 pm at the Passenger Bar in Williamsburg. The lineup includes Jon Chinn, The Receiver, St. Lenox, the Human Hearts, Doug Gillard and WV White.
8 pm: Jon Chinn. Before moving to Brooklyn, Jon Chinn lived in Columbus and ran Workbook Studios, where many an Anyway record was recorded, and played out under both his own name and as a member of Pretty Mighty Mighty.
8:50 pm: The Receiver. Columbus-based brothers Casey and Jesse Cooper have been making gorgeously understated music as The Receiver for nearly a decade.
9:40 pm: St. Lenox. The music Andrew Choi makes as St. Lenox is a mix of narrative lyrics, soulful vocals, and synthetic backing that’s as emotive as it is unique.
10:30 pm: The Human Hearts. The Human Hearts is the latest project of Franklin Bruno, who contributed to Anyway’s I Stayed Up All Night Listening to Records comp and who was the leader of Nothing Painted Blue.
11:20 pm: Doug Gillard. Cleveland native Doug Gillard started with Death of Samantha, which mutated into Cobra Verde. Robert Pollard tapped Cobra Verde to become Guided By Voices, and when the rest of the band left after one record, Gillard stayed on with GBV until that lineup dissolved in 2005. He’s recorded several solo albums as well, including this year’s Parade On.
12:10 am: WV White. The self-titled debut from these Columbus upstarts is as full of songwriting smarts as it is brimming with vigor.
