We’ve been hearing from more and more friends and readers that they’d like to know where we’re going each week so they can join us. We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time. Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them. Support local arts or get outside and do something with us!

Formed in the winter of 2012, Looms consists of frontman Sharif Mekawy (vocals, keys, guitar), Harry Morris Jr. (guitar), A. Hammond Murray (bass) and Louis Cozza (drums). The groups’ music is written around vocals and melodic instrumental arrangements. Each song has its own identity, an evolving catalogue that runs the gamut of song construction. Rock, pop, jazz, electronic, country and folk music are dissected and deconstructed down to their basic components, and then reassembled during the bands writing process. Following the release of their recent EP, Sleeping Days and debut LP, Waking Days, the band is already in the studio mixing new material for summer of 2017. Looms’s newest compositions are equal parts rhythm and content with insightful, emotionally engaging vocals. Looms has built a grassroots fan base by captivating its audience. Fans return knowing they are not going to see a cookie cutter set because of the groups’ improvisational acumen within bridge and solo sections. Non-traditional covers and varied set lists build the mysticism and musical prowess of the group.
