Fenway Recording Sessions Presents: The Rosebuds / DJ Carbo

In 2009, the Rosebuds released its fourth album, Life Like, on Merge Records. Kelly and Ivan Howard started the band in North Carolina the week they got married. But the marriage had been failing for two albums, maybe longer, and it was time to call the relationship off. Ivan and Kelly were done, and the buoyant pop-rock couple that youthfully named their first album,The Rosebuds Make Out, was in limbo.

Jesse Ruben / Caitlin Crosby

Philly-bred singer-songwriter Jesse Ruben freely confides that he’s done a bit of “obsessing” over his second album, The Ones That Matter—not that such anxiety is evident on the highly accomplished disc, the follow-up to Ruben’s self-released 2008 debut, Aiming for Honesty.

Presented by Theatre in the Pines

Set in 1931 Berlin, Cabaret is a musical set in the seedy Kit Kat Klub about a young English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with a young American writer. Based upon a book written by Christopher Isherwood with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Cabaret became an instant smash on Broadway in 1966, and in 1972 it was made into a movie by legendary director Bob Fosse and the unforgettable Liza Minelli.
