Jason Loewenstein (of Sebadoh) - Cancelled
Jason Loewenstein (of Sebadoh) - Cancelled
Indie rock pioneer Jason Loewenstein of the legendary and highly influential band Sebadoh, which he founded with Dinosaur Jr. bassist Lou Barlow and Eric Gaffney, returns with Spooky Action, the title of which could just as easily point to the current political madness as it could to the thrill and anxiety of self-discovery.

After a six-year stint as a member of the Fiery Furnaces and having spent the last several years playing with, recording and/or touring with everyone from Richard Buckner and David Kilgour to his own, still-active band Sebadoh, it’s obvious that Loewenstein is eager to unleash the songs he’s been stockpiling for this new release, his first solo album since the critically acclaimed At Sixes and Sevens.
The Joiner Inners
Originally formed in 1996, The Joiner Inners, a combination of friendship, musical dexterity and volume, celebrate their best traits on “The Time is Now” (2007), a glorious journey through the band's best moments, extolling the virtues of the music that influenced them the most (Guided by Voices, the Who,
the Replacements, and Superchunk). Boiled and basted in an
over-heated basement for over a decade, the band's tightness and comraderies is apparent in would-be singles “Hidden Sector”,
“Song of Many Lyrics” and “Air Guitar and Dashboard Drums”, all of which evoke the best of musicians and friends, plodding angrily towards middle age and restricted circumstances. “The Time is Now” is, interestingly enough, timeless and anyone who wants to enjoy well-crafted music burnt at the ends with musical abandon simply needs to listen... now.

In 2008, now a trio, the band continued writing what would become their next album, “All Star Traction” (2012) much in the same pop rock style of “The Time Is Now”. The album features some more gems such as, “Separate Arts”, “Open Things”, and “Dynamite Horse”. Continuing on, the writing continued and in the winter of 2013, the bands final album, “House of Sound” (2013) was released. Initially an EP, the extended version includes some live recordings from that period as well. The Joiner Inners played their final show in July of 2013.
Western Estates
Presently writing and recording in Southern Connecticut, Western Estates is an embryonic combination of new and old friends playing tuneful rock sparkling with creativity and a dash of prog for good measure. Featuring a stunningly sweet female vocalist and 3 guys trying to change the number of the beast to 203, Western Estates invites you to their universe.

This four-piece band proves the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Laura Klein (MZT), Glenn Furst (various local projects), Matt Cranmer (Codename Ella), and Jarrod Ruby (x-Thirdborder, AM, Proton Proton, Doug Gillard [Guided By Voices]) came together to challenge themselves to create a sound grounded in rock yet constantly reaching towards an eclectic variety of influences.

Each member has a unique musical background and multiple musical talents, which you can hear in the songwriting. Their songs range from romantic duets about carnival rides to stoner-rock odes to murder and mayhem, revenge-ballads to wistfully temporal love songs, all while maintaining their roots in Garage Rock.

Their music is accessible without ever quite fitting a formula. It is catchy without being repetitive, melodic without being generic, and surprising without being off-putting.

Western Estates is constantly developing new music and incorporating different instruments to their oeuvre. Catch them playing shows around CT and NY.
