Mayaeni - Every Thursday in May at the Garden Bowl - FREE

 

Mayaeni (mah-yay-knee), rock and soul singer from Detroit, Michigan.

Raised in a suburb just outside Detroit that she describes as racially pretty segregated at that time, Mayaeni, pronounced mah-yay-knee, was actually born to rock.

Hanging out with her musician dad in the studio was Mayaeni’s form of grooming, with Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan and Hendrix records serving both as musical surrogates and soundtracks to her life.

The instrumentally rich and electric songs she creates now are extensions of her rocker past. Her earliest material was recorded on her dad’s 8-track tapes.

Seeking independence at age 17, Mayaeni headed to London, where she made money under the tables selling clothes at Camden Markets.

The cost-of-living struggle persisted when Mayaeni moved to New York, but those survival years turned out to be perfect preparation.

In New York, Mayaeni worked the open mic circuit, up to five times a week, hopping in and out of places like Village Underground, The Grove and Café Wha.

The music is as edgy and raw as it is emotional, like the sounds of a guitar crying out, whether it’s the yearning in the mid-tempo anthem 'Million N1' or the angst in the clamorous rock-out garage jam 'Too Late.' It's the sound of progress.

Kevin Ross w/ Asante

Kevin Ross had never felt more alive. The singer had gone from performing once every three months to opening for R&B/Soul legend Maxwell five times a week, and his nostalgia-flecked, soul-drenched repertoire resonated with audiences. In demand, he swiftly released an EP (Dialogue in the Grey) boasting features from Ne-Yo and T.I., produced and performed a song for a national commercial (Glade) and was tapped for a spot on Ne-Yo’s sold-out tour—all in the same year. He’d been praying, asking if he should really be an artist, and the answer seemed to be a resounding “yes.” WSG: Asante

And then suddenly, Ross found himself in a career desert.

AEG Presents: BROODS w/ Michl

Vocalist Georgia Nott and her older multi-instrumentalist brother Caleb Nott are Broods, a cleverly and descriptively named electronic pop duo from Auckland, New Zealand. The Notts, who grew up surrounded by music, have played together since they were children. They were in the Peasants, a band that won a competition for intermediate (junior high) and high school musical acts in 2011. After the Peasants broke up, the siblings formed Broods and connected with producer Joel Little, who had served as a judge during the contest. In October 2013, months after Little gained recognition for his work with another Auckland native Lorde, Broods uploaded "Bridges" to their Soundcloud page and subsequently signed major-label contracts for various territories. The following January, "Bridges" was released commercially and reached the Top Ten in New Zealand. WSG: Michl

Gutter Demons on the Garden Bowl Lanes

Since their unholy birth in 2001, Gutter Demons have been tearing up the scene across Canada, US, and Europe with their intense stage shows, raucous rock‘n'roll music, red-blooded rockabilly roots, punk and metal potency, and downright dirty musicianship. Quickly becoming Canada's most recognized disciples of Macabre, they have quickly gained a strong following by playing their unique brand of mutant Psychobilly.This hard working DIY three piece brought their unique approach to Psychobilly music. The Demons psycho sound is refreshing and deeper than most of their contemporary peers. Playing the horror cards in a more subtle way, GD always took great pride in releasing rich & well written concept albums. The real madness happens on stage. GD is a fast & furious mean machine

Good Show Presents: Brother Ali - Own Light Tour wsg Sa-Roc

 

Over the past 17 years, Brother Ali has earned wide critical acclaim for his deeply personal, socially conscious, and inspiring brand of hip-hop. Under Rhymesayers Entertainment, he’s unleashed a series of lauded projects, establishing himself as one of the most respected independent voices in music. The latest chapter in that celebrated journey is All the Beauty in This Whole Life, a 15-track collection produced entirely by Atmosphere’s Anthony “Ant” Davis.

"This entire album is based on the reality that beauty is the splendor of truth" says the Minneapolis MC. "Beauty in all of its forms is the outward manifestation of love and virtue. It soothes the soul and pulls it gently toward the truth it communicates. Every word and note of this album is intended to either reflect beauty, or expose the ugliness that blocks us from living lives of meaning." WSG: Sa-Roc

DJ Premier and The Badder Band Present The "Catalogue Bash" Tour

Despite Premier's long history as a DJ, live instrumentation has been a part of his arsenal since he was a kid and he says he's always wanted to play in a band. Growing up in Texas, he learned how to play drums and bass — his teacher was the father of rapper Travis Scott — and also played guitar in church with his older sister.
