Gubbulidis, featuring: Zdenek Gubb and Mihali Savoulidis of Twiddle, will close out their Summer Putnam Den residency tonight at 9pm. The Duo has performed at The Den every Wednesday throughout Track Season.
Mihali and Zdenek met in 2007 when Zdenek auditioned for Twiddle. The two have been playing together ever since. Needing something to do when twiddle wasn’t on tour they decided to create a different musical outlet for the two of them. With the help of a loop pedal Gubbulidis is able to create a unique sound that is much bigger than what a duo usually has to offer. Between Mihali’s BeatBoxing and Zdenek’s percussive bass lines they are able to create a variety of beats that fill out there sound and enable them to create the full band vibe that makes them so much fun to see live. With ripping solo’s and spot on vocal harmonies these two guys are able to captivate music lovers from all over the world time and time again.

Eastbound Jesus is a six piece acoustic/electric band from the small town of Greenwich, NY. They formed in the fall of 2010 in an old barn on the outskirts of their hometown and huddled around a hot wood-stove, they began writing music right away. Adam Brockway, Carl and Luke Anderson, Dave Wright, Dylan Robinson and Zack Infante take inspiration from all over the music spectrum to form a style all their own. Over a tight rhythm section, the group blends clever lyrics, unique vocal harmonies, solid strumming and picking, and rounds out their sound with lead instrumentation that is nothing short of on-point.
Opening the night are the Lucky Jukebox Brigade. Formed in October 2010 from a hopeful craigslist ad, LJB has since evolved into a 7 piece indie cabaret band. Look for their sophomore album, FAMILIAR FEVERS due out this summer! Take off your fancy shoes…

Get ready for a super fun night featuring the premier Talking Heads tribute band, Start Making Sense.
If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 6 to 7-piece Talking Heads Tribute take pride in faithfully recreating the music of Talking Heads entire career. Together they bring much of the Heads unique live show to the stage, with front man Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, giving you a “once in a lifetime” experience. Prepare yourself for a rockin’, funkin’, danceable celebration of the new-wave art punk you loved from the 80′s !!!
And in case that isn’t enough, the group will also perform a special opening set as their alter-ego Hmf! Hall and Oates are the #1 selling duo of all time. There is no one better than fellow Keystone Staters, HmfO, to bring their music back to the masses. Expect both accurate representations of the band’s material as well as deep explorations into the far reaches of space and back. Possibly a mustache or two.
