Troy Night Out w/ High Falls + Izzy Heltai

Join us for some Troy Night Out tunes on the patio! Brooklyn-based High Falls and Izzy Heltai from North Adams, Mass will be serenading us as we hang with pals, sip on the best bevs and enjoy life.

HIGH FALLS
highfalls.bandcamp.com
High Falls is the name that songwriter and guitarist Colin Vallee has chosen to release music under for the past 6 years. Not to be confused with the lovely town upstate, High Falls is actually named for the waterfall in his hometown of Philmont, NY. Started while overseas in New Zealand, High Falls represents a range of sounds; from the cofessional folk song to more sonic youth inspired sound scapes and tight 3 piece punk rock tracks. High Falls draws influence from bands like Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr, Pavement, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cat Power, Beat Happening, 2 Chainz, Laura Stevenson, etc.

The current High Falls line up has Abbie Krinsky from Hello Floridads providing percussion, and multi-instrumentalist Justin Birmingham from the band Buddha Baby on bass. High Falls is currently based out of Brooklyn and plays shows as often as possible (usually to his cat).

IZZY HELTAI
izzyheltai.com/
Izzy Heltai is a folk singer-songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts. Izzy is an artist that concentrates on storytelling with emotional and sonic resonance; he accomplishes what's at the heart of all successful storytelling—invoking the familiar, while capturing familiarity in a way that is unique, in a way that is specific to Izzy.

Scandinavian Saturday: COFFEE COLLECTIVE

We couldn't be more excited to feature The Coffee Collective from Denmark as this month's Scandinavian Saturday roaster! We've been huge fans for years, in fact one of the places we visited before opening SMCo. was Coffee Collective during a trip to Copenhagen. Not only do we love their friendly yet serious approach to service, we love their farmer-forward initiatives and deep supply chain respect. Coffee Collective is one of the first, if only companies to include the price paid to the farmer on the front of the bags. This transparency is refreshing and is an indicator of their commitment to extreme excellence.

About Scandinavian Coffee:
Modern Scandinavian roasters are renowned for their careful, nuanced approach to roasting with the goal of highlighting the delicately complex attributes of each coffee. This typically lighter approach is benefited by access to the highest quality green coffee – a privilege enjoyed in Scandinavia for some time thanks to early advancements in sourcing.

Coffees for Scandinavian Saturday are sourced and distributed by Kaffebox, one of our favorite new monthly subscription services. We have partnered up with KaffeBox to offer an exclusive referral link which allows folks to try the service for 25% off the first month.

ABOUT HAYLEY  >  www.hayleysabellamusic.com
New England based musician, Hayley Sabella, brings you songs with gripping melodies & intimate lyrics that explore the human condition through nature. Her voice is “honeyed, but with a mild rasp,” and dances over a finger-picked guitar, usually a 1965 hollow-body Gibson, which is a signature sound in her live performance & her new album, Forgive the Birds. Sabella will be taking this Boston-based, homegrown record on the road in the Spring of 2018.

ABOUT BEAR GRASS  >  www.beargrasssongs.com
Bear Grass attracts listeners with the quirky songs of Katie Hammon. Her sultry pipes leave them devastated, but the band’s blend of folk, rock, and homespun trip-hop soothes their wounds. Drawing on influences like Laura Veirs and Wye Oak, the music is sometimes subtly dark, but always thoroughly captivating and melodic.

Coffee, beer, art, music, snacks, friends, fun - what more could you possible ask for on a Friday night!?

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Michael Conlin is an Albany, NY based commercial artist. He grew up on Long Island, where his proximity to New York City allowed him to experience street art and murals first hand. Conlin Studios is a creative shop that offers services in sign painting, lettering, design, illustration and murals. From the open sign on the door to the custom murals on the walls, today Michael’s work can be found inside and outside businesses across the state of New York.

An Ambient Evening at SMCo.

Come to Superior Merchandise for a relaxing evening of ambient music. The show is free, but we will be taking donations for Houston Food Bank for Hurricane Harvey relief. Music will start at 7:30 and be taking place on the back patio, weather permitting!

CASUAL DECAY
Experiments in granular sampling, modular synthesis and pseudo-random melody generation. Probably not as danceable as last time. Hometown show before a lil weekend tour.
