Formed in California in 1995 by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Oliver Everett, EELS, an alternative rock band, has encompassed a wide range of genres. In celebration of the release of its new album, The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett, EELS comes to Boston as part of a North American tour. The album is described as "...an extraordinarily vivid and intimate document of a personal struggle." Chelsea Wolfe kicks off the night.
This annual spring concert will focus on the rich sounds of many of the early pioneer artists who personify stage performance technique. Berklee artists have spent the semester preparing an hourlong concert of selections popularized by Phyllis Hyman, Johnny Taylor, the Ojays, and a showstopping medley of the hits of Sam Cooke. Professor Lawrence Watson is the producer and it is the Spring Concert for PST 471 Stage Performance I.
