Music: Jesse Waldman February Artist-In-Residence @ Lime

Multi-talented Jesse Waldman is the artist residence for February at lime (formerly known as rime). What this means is he'll be performing there every Sunday in the many different projects I’m involved in. You can expect many fantastic delights including high-end sushi, drinky drinks, screaming girls, track lighting and of course, great music. Below is a detailed schedule of what's happening…

Easy to listen to, hard to ignore, this prairie girl run away to the west coast will warm your heart, sooth the tired mind and get you out of your chair. The band's live sets are energetic, inspiring and intimate full of lush piano, soulful vocals, and warm viola, tight drumming and soaring guitars. Monica's voice is stirring, reminiscent of Carly Simon and Carole King, delivering a mixture of folk, blues and roots with gypsy overtones. Monica Lee is joined by the multi-talented Marc L'Espérance on drums and backup vocals, and the virtuosic guitar hero Jesse Waldman

Josh Martinez and the pissed-off wild
Josh Martinez – rapping, Kenton loewen – drums, pete shmitt – bass, jesse waldman – electric guitar

The Pissed Off Wild started as a beer, went around like reefer, and ended up passed out in the backyard under the picnic table with a empty quart of whiskey clutched in its hands and a huge smile on its face. All punk rock attitude, black humor and a rhythm section that just won't quit, these boys make The Supremes look like a bunch of chicks. Mixing 50's doowop, 60's drugs, 70's rock, 80's punk and 90's party rap with a post-Y2K love of the good times, The P.O.W. have established themselves as fusion phenoms wherever they play.

Like the intuition implied by synchronized movement, Jess Hill's music reminds you of something you thought you'd forgotten. Anchored in the tendencies of folk, blues and jazz, Jess tells stories: cyclones and downpours, hovering birds, white skies. In the dim light of midnight living rooms and in the hearts of singing shadows, Jess Hill is building something beautiful.
