Sleepy Kitty / Jungle Fires / The Lighthearted

Sleepy Kitty began as an experimental sound project for a class when frontwoman Paige Brubeck was enrolled as an undergraduate at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007. Brubeck and Evan Sult (ex-Harvey Danger) began layering field recordings of the "L" and Wicker Park street poets with '60s-style harmonies and crashing drums. Sult was playing drums in the math-rock indie-pop band Bound Stems at the time, and Brubeck was playing guitar in the girl group trio Stiletto Attack.

Berklee in the Round

Berklee In The Round Tuesdays (BITR) are free acoustic performances showcasing Berklee students, faculty, and alumni, plus special guests. Inspired by the world-famous Bluebird Café rounds in Nashville, TN, BITR is usually held on the first Tuesday of every month during the semester. The writers are seated in the center of the room and perform their original songs in a circle, creating an intimate listening room vibe, as if the audience was joining the writers in their living room. A special chair is reserved in the round for a mystery guest.

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem at “Cocoa House”

Coffee House concerts are for grownups — but Cocoa House concerts are for kids! And this one will be especially fun, as New England’s most joyful string band brings their family show to Littleton for a return visit. With four great singers, fiddle, ukulele, jug-band-style percussion, banjo, guitar and bass, this seasoned band turns out tunes that are unpretentious, soulful, a little bit silly and deeply musical.

Johnny Butler & All of Us

Johnny Butler is Brooklyn-based saxophonist, composer, producer, and recording artist who embraces all styles of music, from jazz to hip-hop, funk to avant-garde.

Downbeat Magazine writes "“After dabbling with resonances from John Coltrane and Miles Davis and enveloping his processed saxophone sound in cavernous reverb, Brooklyn-based Johnny Butler turns a polyphony of overdubbed horns (triggered by laptop) into Fritz Lang’s Metropolis machine." Featuring Kassa Overall on drums...
