Goli Goes to Grad School (2nd Year Edition)

Greetings from Goli!

To say that things have been a little intense in Goli-land as of late,
would be the understatement of the moment.
Recently, our close friends and bandmates from other projects lost
their apartment in a fire* and we’ve experienced the loss of dear
family members BUT we’ve also started new exciting jobs teaching at
music schools you have heard of (cough, Berklee) and we’ve started our
last year of graduate studies at the New England Conservatory. (some
of those “we’s” are royal 😉

It has been a roller coaster ride, for sure.

We still have our hands and our hearts and our heads (though they
might be occasionally addled) and we’re greatly looking forward to
celebrating the ups & downs of this crazy world with you one more time
before the semester swallows us whole!

Check it!

In our second edition of Goli Goes to Grad School, we’ve asked Petaluma Vale (of Jaggery) and Sarah Rabdau & Self-Employed Assassins to join us for a musical send-off of back-to-school goodness!

-Petaluma plays at 9pm (Val will join her for some celloing & singing) and her enchanting songs of whimsy and clever takes on fairytales grounded in a post-modern reality will keep you tethered to her harp strings.

-At 10pm, Goli will hit with songs of death and getting laid and maybe we’ll have some surprises up our sleeves, like a new song or the debut of a new instrument. You never can tell what we might do. We don’t even know.

-Sarah Rabdau & Self-Employed Assassins will close out the night with well crafted songs, rocking arrangements, sensitive orchestrations and one of our favorite singers! (and some of our favorite people)

We love this line up so much, we would have it over for tea any day of the week and we’d even spike the beverages with a little whiskey.

For those of you interested in our NEC activities, we’ll both be performing the music of Marty Ehrlich on Sept. 13th at Jordan Hall.

We’ll be performing quite a bit over the year at NEC as they are
celebrating the 40th year of the Contemporary Improvisation
Department.
We hope you can check out what we are up to and maybe even join us in
the spring as we host our graduate recitals.

Thank you has taken on a deeper meaning in the past few weeks so…

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support of this
little duo with great ambitions.

their homes and many of their possessions (thankfully most of the
instruments and most importantly all of the people weren’t harmed) go
