Jones Street Station
Jones Street Station was a Brooklyn based rock band, until the forces of nature took JSS to the cloud. Currently in the middle of their weekly marathon remote songwriting project – Perennials – the project, which aims to write, arrange, record, mix, master, and release 52 songs in 52 weeks, has been created in studios across the country and collaboratively honed in the cloud, using Dropbox, Evernote, Google Hangouts, Ning, Network For Good, SoundCloud, and other tech partners to organize the effort. Proceeds collected during the marathon songwriting project will benefit 12 hand-picked charities personally important to the band.
Instruments spotted at a Jones Street Station show could include but are not limited to the following: Mandolin, Harmonica, Guitar, Bass, Piano, Drums, Banjo, Washboard, Accordion, Dobro, Rhodes, Analog Synths, and lots of four-part harmonies. This show will be special because they’ll add the talents of LA’s The GIRLS.
“Of all the bands Brooklyn has produced in recent years, rarely has the borough birthed an Americana-rock love child like Jones Street Station. But this isn’t just Appalachia-on-the-Hudson—the band is just as fond of rockstar timbres and synths as it is mandolin, banjo licks and harmonica. We’re not the first to liken them to a little band called Wilco, and we’d humbly submit the folk/pop stylings of The Avett Brothers and the jamboree ethos of Akron/Family for comparison as well.” – Paste Magazine
The Girls (Alison Brie, Cyrina Fiallo, & Julianna Guill)
THE GIRLS (who sing other people’s songs) are a Los Angeles based trio performing songs of a semi-impromptu, sometimes humorous, always harmonious nature. Oh, and written by other people. Featuring Cyrina Fiallo, Julianna Guill, and Alison Brie, THE GIRLS will woo you with tunes by some of their favorite artists including Queen, Alabama, and maybe even some Weezer.
