Sunday Mar 29th, 2015

Radar vs Wolf's debut self titled full-length album was produced by Mike Marsh (The Avett Brothers, Dashboard Confessional), and will be re-released on vinyl this spring. Books and Vinyl compared the album to "a well-executed fireworks display — big crashes, subtle displays, and colorful trails across the sky, all the while lighting up everything around," referring to the band's "distinct voice and rich musicianship" as "undeniable." And No Country For New Nashville described RvW as having "an eclectic range of influences, a knack for crafting poppy hooks, and unbeatable level of energy." Their tour will have PR support by Michael J Media.

7 PM, First Wednesday Poetry Series featuring Stephen Lewandowski

Wednesday Apr 1st, 2015


The First Wednesday at Webster's Poetry Series continues on April 1 with an open mic, and a reading by featured poet Stephen Lewandowski from upstate New York. Join us at 7 p.m. We'll also be giving away a book of poetry and a Webster's gift certificate.


HOW IT WORKS: Each month, we host a reading by a featured poet, plus an open mic for everyone to share their work. Featured poets will read for 25 minutes. Open mic poets may read one poem, so that the night moves along at a good pace and everyone stays till the end. The series is free, but we'll ask for donations to pay each featured poet.

ABOUT OUR FEATURED POET: Stephen Lewandowski has published twelve small books of poetry, and his poems and essays have appeared in regional and national environmental and literary journals, such as Earth’s Daughters, and anthologies such as Tom Wayman's A Government Job At Last. He is a graduate of Hamilton College who later did graduate work with Louis Jones in the Cooperstown Graduate Programs in American Folk Culture and with Howard Nemerov and William Gass at Washington University in St. Louis. Lewandowski has worked as an environmental educator and consultant in the western Finger Lakes for forty years. He is a founder of the Coalition for Hemlock and Canadice Lakes and the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Task Force. He is currently employed by the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Association and the Center for Environmental Initiatives in Rochester, NY. His most recent book of poems, Under Foot, was published by May Apple Press of Woodstock, NY in 2014.

Saturday Apr 4th, 2015

 
DownBeat Magazine selected Ashley Daneman’s self-produced, fan-funded debut, Beauty Indestructible as Editors’ Pick (January 2015) and printed a full-page interview with her in their March edition. A huge response for a little-known singer releasing an independent album at age 37, but critics would agree it was worth the wait. “Daneman is an assured singer who has clearly found her sound,” says Peter Bacon (The Jazz Breakfast) and All About Jazz calls it, “the triumphant debut of a seriously talented singer and songwriter.”
