The combination of raw creativity with years of classical training has allowed this band to push the envelope more and more. Arpetrio combines the precision of a DJ with the vivid expression of a live band creating an unparalleled fusion experience. The pulsing bass beats combined with the technology of laptops and sophisticated production tools, result in the finest elements of jam, electronica, jazz-fusion, trip-hop, and psychedelic music.

BeAtlanta & The Basement present:

SeagullsSeagulls is a four-piece, mid- tempo, gravelly pop punk band from the bustling metropolis that is Atlanta, GA. Formed in 2012 and fueled by cheap beer and questionable cylindrically-shaped gas station cuisine, they traipse through dive bars and divier basements throughout the southeast playing anthemic punk screeds meant for pounding tallboys and pumping fists. They’ve released one self-recorded EP- ‘All the World’s Wars’ in 2013 and are in the process of releasing a followup. http://seagullsatl.bandcamp.com/

Shehehe has been described as many things, the vanguards of American Jet Rock, Punk with arena leads, Pop Punk, but really what it is is people who love making rockin, punk-inspired music and having a good time. http://shehehe.bandcamp.com/

Lyric Jones LIVE

Lyric Jones & The Basement present:

Lyric Jones LIVE at The Basement Music is her breath of fresh air,” close friends say about Lyric Jones. The Jones musical repertoire includes rapping, playing drums and bass, singing, writing, producing and even DJ-ing a little. She dips into jazz, neo-soul and mainly hip-hop. But whatever she’s doing, she brings a presence like no other.
“All I want is the exhilaration of being on a stage,” Jones said. Her hunger definitely shows. She’s hungry for the crowd to feel her music as deeply as she does, her powerful, message-conscious lyrics spilling out of the speakers.
Indeed she “makes ‘em have a Jones for Lyric”, passionate, multi-faceted and strives to be indispensable. “Why not do it all? Why can’t I be an emcee, soul singer and jazz drummer? Music is music, I love Hip Hop, Jazz & Soul, so the world is gonna see it, know it and hear it.” The new college graduate is fresh out the books and ready to give the industry a face lift. Her highly anticipated debut album titled “Jones St.” is expected to drop September 23rd with features including Grammy Award winning Esperanza Spalding, Jean Grae, J-Live, Raydar Ellis among others.

Originally from Boston MA, LJ began singing first. At a very young age, her first stints were in church, talent shows and community choirs . As a high school student, she was joint enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston; spent three years participating in their summer and academic year programs. It was at Berklee where Jones was known as everyone’s “lil sis”, sponged from everyone and polished her natural ability as a performer and drummer. It wasn’t long before teamed up with producer, DJ, and emcee Raydar Ellis, who was also known as the “face of Hip Hop” around Berklee. The two formed a strong sibling-like relationship, which Jones credits to her knowledge and appreciation of Hip Hop. Raydar immediately saw the potential in Jones as an emcee at age 15, originally the main one behind all her production.
Jones then moved to Georgia to study journalism full-time at The University of Georgia. At the same time in full pursuit of her music career as a hip hop artist; driving back and forth from Atlanta to Athens almost every weekend to rock various stages. As a drummer on the jazz scene in Georgia, Jones took on a more modest approach understanding her role. On the mic however, she’s continuosly gaining new fans and packing out local Atlanta venues with her addictive energy and a stage presence that is beyond her years. She’s hard to miss, always smiling with her “Girl Next Door” aura. Lyric Jones is all things music, clearly a lover of all genres. Her influences range from Jill Scott, Ledisi Lauryn Hill to J Dilla MC Lyte, Mos Def to Robert Glasper & Esperanza Spalding.
