The Moth & the Flame

Los Angeles-based alt-rockers the Moth & the Flame were one of the most buzzed-about bands of September’s waterlogged PearlPalooza street fest, and so it was no surprise when they made a return to Albany’s North Pearl Street for a free headlining concert at the Hollow Bar + Kitchen last month.

They were joined by Katie Hammon’s Bear Grass, who opened the show.

Local 518 musicians came together once again to help those in need. The Low Beat in Albany hosted the Rebuild Nepal Benefit Fest last month to raise money for the victims of the recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal.

The line-up of bands who performed included Troy power trio Super 400, surf-fuzz combo Kimono Dragons, rock wunderkinds Dearest Vendetta, funk powerhouse Victory Soul Orchestra, country-blues troubadour Henry’s Rifle and indie faves Bear Grass.

All proceeds from the concert benefited the Shikshya Foundation Nepal, which is committed to supporting long-term, sustainable rebuilding efforts.

Mikaela Davis

Review by Greg Haymes

If you’re looking for something completely different, please check out the marvelous Mikaela Davis the next time she comes to town. After impressively strong opening sets by Olivia Quillio and Bear Grass, Davis made a dazzling return to the Parish Public House last month. It was her second time there (though it was known as Red Square when she played back in March), and she had previously played at the now defunct Valentine’s Music Hall back in 2011.

Rochester native Davis sings and plays the classical harp. Of course, she’s not the only harpist around playing in a non-classical setting – let’s not forget the harp duo Harptallica, for instance – but Davis plays her harp in service of her own original indie-pop songs, and at PPH in support of her new EP, Fortune Teller, she was particularly sparkling.
