They're one of those bands known for their on-stage epiphanies... Having built a solid reputation as a smoldering live band, McAlister Drive are set to release a new album that promises to win their new audiences. Missing Figures could be the band's finest work to-date. Missing Figures was produced by Ed Valauskas @ the legendary Q Division. If you're in Boston, you can attend the EP Party at the Hard Rock Boston (five stage changes with six acts) for just $12. That ticket price will also get you one of these limited EP albums, free of charge. That's really sweetening the deal!

SATURDAY'S
SPECIAL GUESTS:

ROCK 'N ROLL AMERICANA - Now working on a new album of their own, Girls Guns and Glory have gained a loyal regional following and have won the hearts of many outside the region as well. (I really like this band.) Their addition to this lineup is a huge boon for you. Do not miss this chance to see them on the Hard Rock stage!



MODERN POP - Winner of the 2009 WBRU Rock Hunt, Fairhaven have proven to be on the fast track to success. It's only come with hard work and dedication to their music. It shows in Origins, Fairhaven's debut album - released earlier this year.


[Ed's note: It's not often that I often have the luxury of actually quoting an artist's website bio. Miss Tess's is well written, direct and - did I say well written?...]

Miss Tess is a New York City based songwriter and performing musician, who tours regularly with her band, as "Miss Tess & The Bon Ton Parade". In addition to Tess on her 1920s archtop guitar, the current lineup includes Alec Spiegelman on sax & clarinet, Paul Dilley on upright bass, and Matt Meyer on drums. After nationally touring for the last five years, Miss Tess has just released her anticipated fifth album, “Darling, oh Darling”. The album presents an ecclectic array of originals, all stemming from roots in jazz, swing, blues, and folk. Miss Tess draws comparisons to artists such as Jolie Holland, Madeleine Peyroux, Regina Spektor, or Ella Fitzgerald, but maintains a style all of her own.


With the release of Lily Holbrook's most recent album, "Wicked Ways," an opening performance for Brian Wilson at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC and a slot at New Jersey's "All Points West" festival headlined by Radiohead, Lily no longer belongs to Boston. (She's a woman of the world!) She is currently in San Francisco working on her fourth album. We are very lucky to have her with us at the Hard Rock on August 7th.
