Thursday July 26 at Limelight
Fleming Entertainment is happy to announce our Limelight showcase featuring a power packed set of artists such as Kenya Diggum, Lost Interest, Awakening Biota, Under Atoms, and Voodoo Swift.
The opening performance is by Kenya Diggum, a Boston based independent funkadelic rock group that began at Northeastern University. The band consists of Mark Brenckle on guitar, Ian Brenckle on bass and Matt Ripley on drums. With influences such as Phish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Pink Floyd, the band has many covers to choose from as well as originals. In February of 2012, the band had their first live show at AfterHours. Since then, they have been working on new material and hope to play many more events in the future. We feel confident that this will not be their last!
Next up we have Lost Interest! This band was formed in Everett, MA in 2011 and consists of Rob Murray on bass guitar, Brianna Ciampi on vocals, Bass Rivas on drums (you thought we’d say Bass, right?), and Dave Joulfaian on guitar. Similar to Kenya Diggum, Lost Interest also played their very first show in February of 2012 and in May released their first demo “It’s Getting Really Awkward.” Their musical influences consist of The Beatles, Flyleaf, and The Smashing Pumpkins. The band has played live events in PA’s Lounge in Somerville and Hennessy’s Hooley’s House in Boston.
Awakening Biota is a grunge alternative band formerly from Marlborough, MA. The bands members include Gabo Flores on guitar and vocals, Phil Ward on Bass, Ethan Gavin on drums, and Adam “BadLuck” Baker as the roadie. Members Gabo, Phil, Ethan, and Adam believe that Awakening Biota was a “result of casual luck or destiny” which “happened to smile upon four local fuckups who had nothing going for them.” In our opinion, Gabo Flores accurately depicts his band when he says “if Nirvana, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Smashing Pumpkins were all to take a shit in the same bowl, there’d be us.”The band is influenced by musicians such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Nirvana.
Under Atoms, originally spelled Under Adams, was founded in 2001 in the small town Salisbury, MA by band members Heather Taskovics, Chris Bachmann, Steve Briggs, Jack Parsons, and Dave DerBoghosian. Currently they are located in Dave’s basement and have recently welcomed John Naroian, guitarist and Dave’s cousin, to the band. The bands influences include Tori Amos, Sarah McLaughlin, and Black Sabbath. They’ve played in venues such as the Hard Rock Café, House of Blues, and The Cantab Lounge and hope to get back into the studio to record! If Nirvana, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Smashing Pumpkings were all to take a shit in the same bowl, there’d be us”. “If Nirvana, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Smashing Pumpkings were all to take a shit in the same bowl, there’d be us
Lastly, we bring you Voodoo Swift of Plymouth, MA! Their ‘lax attitudes will be sure to put you in a good mood while taking you for a crazy ride musically. The band is made up of Kelly Orcutt on bass, Brendan Berger on guitar, and Josh Estrada on vocals and guitar. The group is influenced by bands such as Rage Against, Alice Cooper, All That Remains, and Static-X.
