JAGGERY with special guests CABIRIA and NO EYE CONTACT
Friday 10/23 -
$8 ADVANCE / $10 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:15 show

Jaggery is an experimental art-rock collective who work the dark edge of a genre-defying musical style (darkwave jazz? siren rock?). fronted by Boston-based singer/songstress mali sastri ~ whose training in the expressive arts discipline Voice Movement Therapy is evident in her global-sized voice ~ the band suggests a classical, organic, avant-jazz-oriented Cocteau Twins or a âwhite witchâ counter to the haunting Diamanda Galas. maliâs voice can be a leaf floating in the breeze, and then become an Earth-shaking, Everest-sized volcano. she is flanked by a rotating lineup of musicians and instrumentation including daniel schubmehl's west african approach to the drum kit, with jazz influences, tony leva's funky upright bass, and petaluma vale's celtic harp and backup vocals. this âexotic musical mobileâ evokes what Alice Coltraneâs âJourney in Satchidanandaâ might sound like with Bjork singing over the top of it. the band's repertoire bridges the delicate and explosive ~ from haunting lullabies to furious, mixed-meter rants; tightly-woven compositions in odd time signatures to catharsis-inducing, barn-burning mini-epics (oft-times within the same song). the sound is rich, organic, captivating, both dark and triumphant. Jaggery (the word comes from the dark brown, Indian sugar) has toured across the east coast, and has released two recordings, the 2004 in lethe ep, and the 2006 full-length polyhymnia. their first music video (âO Scorpio) won their director âMost Promising New England Filmmaker 2009â at the Boston Underground Film Festival.

NO EYE CONTACT was born in 2004 as the private recording project of singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Raky Sastri. Over the years it grew, in fits and starts, until it could no longer be contained by bedrooms and laptop computers. Now a trio (and occasional quintet), the group released its full-length debut âYou and Me and Other Fablesâ in June of 2009 and began hauling its strange menagerie of half-broken folk instruments and cheap distortion pedals to music halls, campuses, and environmental education centers across the Northeastern United States.

NPR says: "wonderfully off-kilter percussion, propulsive guitars, found sounds and rousing singalongs"
