THE OUTNUMBERED ≈ APRIL 22nd / 7PM

“a rambunctious combo featuring a stellar cast of Boston improvisers”
-Andrew Gilbert, The Boston Globe

The Outnumbered

Charlie Kohlhase, saxophones
Jason Robinson, saxophones, flute
Josh Rosen, piano
Bruno Raberg, bass
Curt Newton, drums

A collective ensemble, The Outnumbered began in 2008 when California saxophonist and composer Jason Robinson partnered with Boston-based creative music stalwarts Charlie Kohlhase, Josh Rosen, Bruno Raberg and Curt Newton. Focused on developing and performing original music, the Outnumbered seamlessly moves between beautiful melodies, dissonant abstraction, heavy grooves, and freer rhythmic soundscapes. Their music is robust, beautiful, and focused.

DIA ≈ APRIL 24th / 7:30 PM

Dia is the project of LA based singer and composer Danielle Birrittella. Writing on the ukulele and piano, Danielle​ ​often incorporates vocal pedals to abstract her voice and create harmonic layers. Her music is influenced by wartime​ ​ballads, art song, and pop of the 1950’s and 1960’s.

​​

Dia’s debut EP Tiny​ ​Ocean is out now, and features the single Covered In Light, produced by acclaimed producer/drummer​ ​Joey Waronker (Beck, REM, Atoms for Peace). Her​ live​ performance of the song was​ recently​ ​featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk ​Contest. ​
