RSVP to see The Right Now LIVE Saturday January 20th, 2018: Guarantee your reserved ticket by becoming a VIP member here. The Right Now's pop-meets-soul sound is more than a vehicle for Stefanie Berecz's captivating voice. The celebration of thoughtful, catchy songwriting and intricate arrangements evokes a subtle sophistication in the tradition of Quincy Jones’ 70s and 80s masterpieces. Since 2008 the band has toured much of the United States and released three acclaimed albums, racking up placements in television, national commercials, and the multi-million-selling video…

J Roddy Walston and the Business back Live at JBTV Thur Feb 1st, 2018 1:30pm

February 1 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Come see J. Roddy Walston and the Business play JBTV for their 2nd time!

Heading into Destroyers of the Soft Life, the fourth LP by J. Roddy Walston and The Business set to be released September 29 via ATO Records, JRWATB pursued a brighter, more nuanced sound that teased out the band’s latent pop sensibilities without skimping on energy or attitude. As you press play on the opening track “You Know Me Better”, anthemic guitars scream out of buoyant, hooky lyrics as Walston’s chugging piano supplies a persistent heartbeat. The “bar band” sound of the past has been replaced by an aspirational, booming cacophony that could fill stadiums.

The Black Lips Live at JBTV Wed March 28th 1:30pm

Black Lips RSVP Wednesday, March 28th @1:30pm

For their ninth studio album, the Black Lips have teamed up with Sean Lennon,
who got on board to produce Satan’s graffiti or god’s art? in 2016. The Black Lips had
formerly worked with Lennon on Arabia Mountain, where Lennon played theramin on
several tracks. The band moved up to Lennon’s studio compound on a remote farm in
upstate New York, and spent several months living and breathing the new record. This
removal from the outside world, plus the return of beloved early guitarist Jack Hines and
the exciting addition of new members Oakley Munson on drums and Zumi Rosow (the
first female Black Lip) on saxophone, infused the project with a focused, intoxicating
liveliness, similar to the spirit that had brought the Black Lips to life in the first place,
way back in 1999. Only this time, the band is drawing from nearly two decades of
experience and musicianship, and the newness is tethered by familiarity: Munson is a
longtime friend of the band, and Rosow has been playing live with the Black Lips for
several years now. There’s even a dash of kismet: unbeknownst to the band, after being
off the grid for some time, Munson had just recently moved to a cabin a short distance
away from Lennon’s compound, and the first time his phone ever rang after he plugged
into the wall, Alexander was on the other end, asking him to play.
All of this excitement and immersion created the perfect storm for the Black Lips’
most musically evolved album to date. “It was a really beautiful experience. We were
very far from civilization, and we were all living at the studio. We weren’t going home to
our own beds every night; that was our whole world, 100% of the time,” says Swilley of
the experience. “Making this record was the most wonderful few months of my life. It
was by far my favorite time recording an album so far…It was just magic.” The Black
Lips were joined by Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family, who helped co-produce the
record with Lennon, plus another rather magical guest: Yoko Ono. “She’s very cosmic,”
Swilley says of the celebrated artist and musician, who makes an appearance on a few of
the tracks. The final product is urgent and thoughtful, reflecting the growth the Black
Lips have experienced since bursting onto the scene (once or twice quite literally on fire),

but it’s also true to their original blistering, careening take on rock n’ roll: fuzzy, dirty,
and rife with three and four part harmonies. Satan’s graffiti or god’s art? proves that
while they may have grown up a bit and changed a few things around, the Black Lips are
still as creatively unhinged and exhilarating as ever.
