A benefit concert to support SKILL SET ( http://skillsetretreat.org/): a new retreat for 20-24 year olds Skill Set is a new retreat for 20-24 year olds at the Rowe Center taking place between June 8th and 14th, 2014. Skill Set is a program for people in transition between adolescence and adulthood. We’ll be working on personal growth and community building, emphasizing the vital skills of listening, leadership, and critical self-reflection. As we work on big questions about career, family, identity, and social change, we’ll also be sharing experiences as cooks, carpenters, and wilderness explorers. Participants will gain new skills, insights about themselves, and new visions for their lives, communities, and societies.

FEMINIST STANDUP COMEDY WORKSHOP
Calling all comedians, feminists, and none of the above! We're doing it again! Last time was such a success that we decided to have another workshop. Noëlle Gray, former swing dancer and current wicked funny comedian, joins us again for another good time.

Rules are the same: Bring your sense of humor. Leave your misogyny, racism, transphobia, homophobia, classism, and ableism at home. (Or just, you know, throw them out. They don't look good on you anyway.) No gods, no masters. Try to get there on time. No punk rock o'clock here.

JASON LESCALLEET
If you missed, or attended the February screening and talk Jason presented of his "Films About Nothing" at Hampshire College in February, you should be more than excited to catch him in a live performance. A new LP on Graham Lambkin's KYE label is out sounds great.

ANTTI TOLVI
On tour from Finland! Antti Tolvi is a self-taught, multi-talented musician. He has played in numerous bands including Lau Nau, Rauhan Orkesteri, and Lauhkeat Lampaat. From 2000-2001 he studied classical Indian music in Varanasi, and this marked a turning point in his perception of music. On returning to his native Finland, he became embroiled in Free Jazz for a number of years, until a recent relocation to the countryside pushed him ever more towards solo improvisation – deriving inspiration from, in Antti’s own words, “harmonies, overtones, going into sound, no ends, no starts, from nothing comes something, just perfect, peace”.

JOSH BURKETT
The quiet man behind the Mystery Train, killing you softly with his song.

SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN
The "local opener" is a rare return from the psych-out power house. Dig.

MERCHANDISE
songs that envelope and overtake the listener, with clear and urgent vocals that swell with delay, blasts of noise and reservoirs of reverb to create some of the best and exciting music being made today. Haunting and striking, melodic and inviting, driving and innovative, these are songs that stay with you, these are songs you will remember.

UKIAH DRAG
The Ukiah Drag are Floridians in New England exile: haunted by grave, aberrant definitions of post punk and rock n' roll and what it ultimately means for the Superego to be blitzed by the Id. The DIRT TRIP single wields a heavy creep-beat that cleans your dusty clock and takes you for a bourbon afterwards; its slide guitar and echoplex'd vocals trail bloodthirsty sultans into synesthetic merriment.

ZZONES
A New project from the minds of Moloney, Langellotti, Russell.

DEMONBROTHER
The brainchild of Will K. and Andrew J. A tumultuous, boundary-pushing sonic purveyor to satiate the constant hunger for new brutality. A true hardcore debut. This special performance features a full live band.

LA CAZA
c. dooley and friends. classic wmass noise.
