What is B.I.T.R. Tuesdays? Berkee-in-the-Round Tuesdays is a free acoustic performance showcasing Berklee students, faculty, and alumni, plus special guests. Inspired by the world-famous Bluebird Café rounds in Nashville, B.I.T.R. Tuesdays are held on the last Tuesday of each month during the semester. The writers are seated in the center of the room and perform their original songs round-robin fashion, creating an intimate listening-room vibe, as if the audience was joining the writers in their living room.

The Bleeding Hearts

Executive Sessions is back for its 2011-2012 season. Join us for this celebration of music and entrepreneurial spirit.

The Bleeding Hearts acquired its name from the band's steadfast refusal to accept any paying gigs. The group performs only at fundraisers and nonpaying venues. Its specialty is straight-up, harmony-driven rock 'n' roll in the tradition of the Byrds, Tom Petty, and the Beatles. Like most good things in life, the Bleeding Hearts was born out of friendship. Sean Coleman and Bob Allard were introduced by their mutual friend, David Bergers, who sang with Allard at the BSO. Coleman instantly realized how good they would sound with his longtime friend Bill Danylik. From there it was a short leap in logic to add two more friends, Kevin Counihan and Jim Clements. Thus the Bleeding Hearts were born.

Lead singer and bassist Bob Allard is the founder and chief executive officer of extensionEngine, LLC, a software product development consultancy that works with companies to create cutting-edge, world-class enterprise mobile and web systems.

The opening band is MC3, featuring Curt Naihersey on vocals, guitar and keyboards, Clara Kebabian on vocals, violin and guitar, and Marty White on bass. MC3 is an acoustic-pop ensemble whose latest album, Leaving the Farm, was released on Lowbudget Records in 2010.
