This Week Beats Cross Borders
Wednesday, February 20 | 8–10pm
Join us every 3rd Wednesday for Blues Jam. Dennis Willmott from Left Eye Jump will provide lead guitar, bass, and drums and these guys will back you up or take a break and let you play. All musicians and blues fans are welcome! Everyone will get a chance to play.
Thursday, February 21 | 8–10pm
Verbal Onslaught is Middlebury’s Premier Spoken Word Open-Mic. Shy and Outspoken poets, good listeners, loud hand-clappers and finger-snappers, writers, and artists are more than welcome.
The Big Mean Sound Machine
Friday, February 22 | 9pm–12am
Fusing elements of Afrobeat, 60s Garage Rock, 70s Funk, and Jamaican Dub rhythms, Big Mean Sound Machine cranks out the dirtiest, fattest, grooviest beats to keep you moving all night long.
The N’goni Trio
Saturday, February 23 | 8–11pm
With members of Barika, Rubblebucket, Vorcza Trio, Anais Mitchell, Bombino and Squid City, The N’goni Trio performs a blend of traditional Malian songs based on the kamel n’goni (an African harp from the Wassoulou region of Mali) and improvisational pieces sculpted in the magic of the moment. Join us for a beautifully relaxing night of music and improvisation.
