New Music Monday – Stars Turn Me On

New Music Monday is all about sharing the good tunes of new bands that we love and/or coming to the Foundry soon! First up is Stars Turn Me On, who will open for Zepparella this Friday, February 12 at the Foundry.

Stars Turn Me On is an indie rock band formed by Clementine, drummer of Zeppelin powerhouse Zepparella, and guitarist Justin Caucutt.  Stars performs as both a full rock band, and as an acoustic duo. The songs are lyrically rich and musically draw on classic influences from rock, country and blues genres, as well as modern electronica and R&B. Clementine fronts the band as singer, and often plays the drum parts on the recordings, or creates the beats electronically.

On stage, she has been compared to Alison Mosshart of the Kills and Jim Morrison, an early love. Performing an acoustic duo, the storytelling of the songs pops out and carries the audience away. Performing with a full band, Clementine’s frontperson persona is completely arresting. Bassist and lap steel player Judah Collins has become an integral part of the project.

Zepparella

 

 

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Zepparella on Friday, February 22, 2019.  All female Led Zeppelin powerhouse Zepparella brings their passion for the sacred music of the greatest band in the world all over the US and Canada.  Zepparella shows replicate the nuance and detail of Led Zeppelin’s catalog while honoring the powerful improvisational journeys for which Zeppelin shows were renowned.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.  Dancing / standing concert with limited seating available.  Tickets are $22 in Advance and $27 at the Door.  Advance sales close at 4:00 p.m. the day of the show.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office.

How to honor the legacy of a band deemed sacred?  Vocalist Anna Kristina, Guitarist Gretchen Menn, Bassist Holly West, and Drummer Clementine of Zepparella know that to tread on holy ground is perilous and must be done with the intent and spirit of a disciple.  Pat attention to the intricacies of the magic, explore the far ends of the innovation, strive for ever-growing ability, and let the purity of the love for the music drive it all.  It wasn’t that long ago women rock musicians were a rare breed.  They might sign up front, or as part of a girl group, but women weren’t often seen playing rhythm or lead guitar.  Times have changed.
