Jody Porter, known for his impressive guitar playing abilities and Brit-pop style, first garnered attention in the early 1990's fronting and writing songs for the then London-based group The Belltower. The band created quite a buzz for itself abroad â€" including features in Melody Maker as well as scoring multiple NME singles of the week. After topping the English charts, the band moved back to the States, eventually breaking up in 1996. Later that year, Porter was asked by friend, Adam Schlesinger (who briefly played bass guitar with The Belltower), to join his newly-formed band, Fountains of Wayne and support their eponymous self-titled Atlantic Records debut. In 2003, they received 2 GRAMMY nominations for their RIAA certified gold album, "Welcome Interstate Managers" released by Virgin Records.

During this time Jody began writing and recording what would eventually become "Close to the Sun", a refreshingly unconventional rock record that recalls early David Bowie, Revolver era Beatles and The Pretty Things, while moving guitar based music in a forward, innovative direction.

Jody's debut release, "Close to the Sun" bridges the gap between the atmospherics of The Belltower and the guitar driven power pop of Fountains of Wayne. His premiere solo effort was co-produced by Porter himself, Michael Tudor and Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spector).

New York's Lowry opens the show
"Lowry's blend of modern folk, indie-rock and electronic soundscapes is coupled with raw and honestly brutal lyrics, distinguishing the group from the usual Williamsburg crop." - Time Out New York

Indie rockers Shadwell, having just performed a sold out show at The Lizard a week ago returns to round out this excellent bill!
