And the Kids, Parsonsfield and The Basement Cats



Recently called one of "the Western Mass. indie scenes brightest creative lights" by Pitchfork, (Northampton, Massachusetts) And the Kids plays live along with Parsonsfield and The Basement Cats on Friday, June 12 at Gateway City Arts, 92 Race Street, Holyoke, MA.

And the Kids, who just recently released their debut full-length album, Turn to Each Other (Signature Sounds) create "apocaplyptic pop", a dizzying stop-start ride with lush, intricate soundscapes that frame Hannah Mohan’s lively lead vocals. 


Parsonsfield, formerly Poor Old Shine is a roots band with a grassroots ethos. The Connecticut quintet prizes the human element that underpins their music, from songwriting to recording to album design and even choice of record label (Signature Sounds). "You can't have music without people, whether it's electronic music or the oldest Delta blues players," singer and banjo player Chris Freeman says. "The people behind it are really important, and we always want to make sure that everything we do feels handcrafted and pure."

Opening the show will be "The Basement Cats, a local indie rock band from Holyoke, MA, that has been amassing a loyal following in Western Massachusetts."
Doors open at 6:00pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased in advance at http://www.ticketfly.com/event/851965-kids-parsonsfield-holyoke/ .
