This week we're coming to you you via radio signal! I (Jac) got to chat with Andy & Sandy on Freedom Talk Radio in Scotland on Monday. No, I did not get to take a sporadic trip to Scotland, I wish! I just called in. Check it out here (I'm on around 00:36):
Happy Little Clouds couldn’t be more fired up to release our brand new and very first studio album, "Shift.” We've invited some of our favorite people to help us put on an amazing show for you. We have BRAND NEW MUSIC to give to you, AMAZING LOCAL BANDS, LOCAL ARTISTS, POETRY, and an ART AUCTION all benefitting a really great cause: Girls Rock Campaign Boston
Please RSVP here

We wanted to give back to the amazing creative community we've been a part of, and do something special that helps the art and music scenes thrive here in the Greater Boston area, so we're having LIVE ART being made by local artists during the show and you'll be able to buy the very same art in an ART AUCTION we'll have toward the end of the show.
Proceeds from the art auction will be given to:
1) Girls Rock Campaign Boston &
2) Back to the artists to help them continue making art or at least help cover the cost of materials for this show and a well-deserved beer.
Visiting from Worcester we’ll have POETRY between music sets from our Emcees, Nick & Alex (who you might recognize from the most rad Monday night you’ve ever had in Worcester, The Dirty Gerund Poetry Show) Not only will they be hosting the show, but they will be slamming you with their witty words as well as auctioneering the live art for you to buy. Bring some cash with you for the auction and let’s raise some money for a great cause.
THE GREAT CAUSE:
Girls Rock Campaign Boston (GRCB) is a non-profit organization with a mission to empower girls to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence and collaboration through musical education and performance. GRCB works to encouraged to sing out, speak out and make a lot of noise! Find out more about LRCB and GRCB at our website: www.girlsrockboston.org
You’ll be able to donate to GRCB during the show (our Emcees will walk around with buckets), at the art auction, or at their merch table, so bring cash! If you donate more than $5, you'll get some FREE merch from Happy Little Clouds. That's how much we love GRCB. See details below!
Happy Little Clouds [ALBUM RELEASE]
Happy Little Clouds is a Boston-based indie rock band whose songs will stick with you rain or shine. The band’s unfiltered, heartfelt lyrics are layered over bluesy vocals, a vintage rock sound, and catchy melodies. On their debut album, "Shift," premiering the day of this show, July 9, 2016, produced by Portland, Maine's legend Jonathan Wyman, Happy Little Clouds captures the emotional rollercoaster of discovering love and lust while on the journey for inner truth and that moment of nostalgia that occurs right before your journey begins and everything changes forever. Hop in and join them for the ride, and don’t touch the radio dial.
Residing in the overlap between Alternative, Rock, Indie, Powerpop, and Americana on the Venn Diagram, The Rationales bring to mind such acts as Wilco, Radiohead and Nada Surf, while always sounding entirely like themselves.
PowerSlut combines lyrical dexterity with honest and raunchy rock n' roll, then packs it into a miniskirt and sneakers and shoots it all over your face. Their debut album "With Great Power Comes Great Slut," produced by Joel Simches of Watch City Studios, was released on July 3.
The Knock Ups
Formed in 2012 The Knock Ups are a female fronted, self proclaimed GLAM punk band. Bringing back the energy and sound of the riot grrrl movement. They just rocked out in Boston’s highly-acclaimed Rock and Roll Rumble in April.

Dug McCormack (from Psychic Dog)
