Little Joy

Two-thirds of the trio, Little Joy—Rodrigo Amarante (vocals and guitar) and Binki Shapiro (vocals and keyboards)—set out to spread the love on a U.S. tour. Rodrigo and Binki will fill out the band with bassist Todd Dahlhoff (a Berklee alumnus) and guitarist Matt Borg of the Dead Trees; drummer Matt Romano, (from Albert Hammond Jr.'s band), and guitarist Jack Dishel (from Only Son).

National Public Radio sung the praises of Little Joy in a recent review: "There's an authentic earnestness . . . [Fabrizio] Moretti's lyrics, as crooned by Amarante, dispense melancholic missives of lost love while capturing the excitement inherent in tomorrow's promise . . . [A]midst all the swooning vocal harmonies, crisp strums of acoustic guitar and percussive clacking, it's not hard to fall in love with Little Joy" – National Public Radio

The Dead Trees will open the bill.

Admission: 
$8 advance/$12 day of show
