Baby Copperhead (Record Release Show) - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Baby Copperhead (Record Release Show)
Benjamin Brian Lee AKA Baby Copperhead is a New York City-based banjo player, guitarist, and composer. While building on his “otherworldly” folk roots, Lee explores a broken dissonant America, gathering repressed elements from our cultural past — the banjo’s African origins, polyphonic borrowings from 16th century European sacred music, avant-garde improvisations — combined with modern electronics, samplers, and handmade circuit-bent instruments.

Baby Copperhead’s collaborations include works with Eugene Chadbourne, Michelle Dorrance, Ed Askew, and Room 21 with Jace Clayton (aka DJ/rupture), a project that demonstrates Baby Copperhead’s ongoing interest in exploring the nexus of European classical, North African, and Central American traditions through the prism of folk music and pop culture. His other projects are The Zolephants, a protoplasmic punk/surf/spaghetti-western instrumental electric trio; and Baby Copperhead with strings, featuring Tom Swafford on violin, Jessica Pavone on viola, and Brent Arnold on cello.

He has toured throughout Europe, Asia, and North America, and continues to perform consistently in the New York City area.
Zachary Cale - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Zachary Cale is a NYC based songwriter/musician originally hailing from the small town of Enon, Louisiana. His music ranges from lyrically driven balladry over American Primitive inspired guitar playing to Cosmic Country music and cerebral Folk Rock.

For the past decade Cale has been releasing records under his own name via a number of labels including his own imprint All Hands Electric. His latest album Duskland was released in 2015 on No Quarter to critical acclaim.

On stage Cale performs both solo and with an full electric band. In concert his melodically complex guitar playing has been compared to Neil Young and Bert Jansch with nods to pre-war Piedmont and Ragtime players such as Blind Willie McTell and Mississippi John Hurt. In a full band setting Cale has been known to strap on an electric, adopting a style and delivery that flies closer to country-tinged rock songwriters such as Alex Chilton, Ray Davies and Tom Petty. The intensity of his solo sets hold crowds spellbound, while the electric band sets veer into a mild psychedelia that’s equally captivating.
Shione Yukawa - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Shione Yukawa
Shione Yukawa was born in Tokyo, 1983. She joined the “Little Singers of Tokyo” and started singing while in primary school, allowing her to experience many performances abroad. Her first solo performance at the Pop Field in 2001 created a huge buzz, and her voice became widely recognized over night. Shione returned to Tokyo after studying in Ireland, and began composing her own songs and started her career as a professional musician. From then, she has continued to create a unique musical world, weaving together her influences from classic and traditional music with beautiful rhythmical lyrics.
