About Pelham
map
The Town of Pelham Massachusetts was founded in 1743 and is located in Hampshire County.

Those in the area should visit the Swift River Valley Historical Society for a piece of town history. Also visit the Bears Den which is a 100 foot deep gorge that was carved by the swift river cascading off granite cliffs and this was also said to be the meeting place for Indian Tribes.

The town remains to be a quiet rural bedroom community.

Viceroy - Phantoms
This event is 18 and over
Viceroy

It's no question that Viceroy is one of the biggest names in dance music right now. With a stellar past year full of big-name collaborations, chart-topping remixes and buzz-blog no.1's, Viceroy is constantly making moves. With his "summertime all the time" motto fully emblazoned in everything he touches, 2013 saw Viceroy bring his unique brand of lush, tropi-cool house disco to clubs and parties across the world, including showcases at CMJ in New York, and tours across Australia, Asia and South America soon no continent will be left untouched.

With the release of the sun-swept single, 'Dream of Bombay' in 2013, along with the latest and now infamous edition of the 'Jet Life' remix series, which included the smooth rework of Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do It", Viceroy has been privy to exclusive remixes for well-established artists such as Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Passion Pit, Two Door Cinema Club and St Lucia to name just a few. Proving that Viceroy is both a production and DJ talent easily sitting at the top of the game, both his remix and original catalog have earned him coveted credits such as #1 on Hype Machine, #1 on Spotify Chart, #1 We Are Hunted for almost every release. Add in over 5 million Soundcloud plays, countless mix tapes and exciting collaborations in the world of fashion and technology, the demand for anything Viceroy makes him one of the most exciting producers to watch for 2014.

Bringing a cool, "jams not bangers" attitude to his body of work, plus a serious sack of singles that have easily held their own since 2012, this year will see the long-awaited release of a debut full-length album. Sun-drenched and full of addictive hooks, Viceroy will well and truly be making waves on your beach.

Screaming Females - Priests, Tenement, Vacation
This event is 18 and over
Screaming Females

It's been 6 years since guitarist/vocalist Marissa Paternoster and bassist Michael Abbate crammed into drummer Jarrett Dougherty's attic to write and record their earliest collaborations as Screaming Females. The band was young (Michael was still in high school) yet already focused. Rather than placing those recordings on a CD-R demo or waiting for a label to approach them, Screaming Females opted to self-release a real album with real packaging. The record was Baby Teeth, their aptly titled debut. This was just the tip of the iceberg for the trio, who quickly discovered and jumped headfirst into a national DIY punk network. After numerous basement shows around their home state of New Jersey and a few short tours, Marissa, Michael and Jarrett decided their next effort needed a proper studio. The band decided not to utilize normal studio wizardry and instead opted to simply set up their gear and play. Many songs were recorded in a single take and the record saw few overdubs. Through these raw recordings the band attempted to capture a true representation of the louder and faster sound they had developed. Creating this new, deafening punk soon had its consequence. During one practice an irate police officer issued the band a noise violation and insisted they had to consider neighbors who could be trying to watch television. Befittingly, the next album was titled What If Someone Is Watching Their T.V.? To celebrate the release of this second album the trio embarked on a 70-day national tour, beginning their reputation as one of the hardest-working bands in North America.

Their dedication hasn't gone unnoticed. This past year has brought their television debut, sold out headlining shows and tour dates with legendary names such as Ted Leo and Against Me! As a way to thank the fans, Screaming Females are reissuing vinyl of their first two albums, which until now were only available at early shows.

Volcanic Winter, Population Bottlenecks, and Human Evolution

The eruption of the Mount Toba supervolcano in the Indonesian island of Sumatra 74,000 years ago brought about an era of severe environmental degradation that decimated populations of Neanderthals and modern humans. Archaeological evidence suggests that modern humans survived this era by creating cooperative intergroup social networks and behaving like tribes. Neanderthals on the other hand, behaved more like primate troops, living in small, closed territories with limited intergroup interaction. Stanley Ambrose, Professor of Anthropology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will discuss the behaviors that contributed to the competitive advantage of modern humans and the demise of Neanderthals.

AfterFab - the Solo Music of the Beatles

AfterFab - the solo music of the Beatles

What can you expect from an AfterFab show? A high-energy, passionate tribute to the mega-classic canon of The Beatles' solo years, the only one in the world, played with high fidelity to the original studio recordings. Beatles fans are absolutely everywhere and this unique concept and focus draws them in droves. It's something new and different for Beatles and classic-rock fans, and general audiences, thanks to 70 US Top-40 hits and 325 million records collectively sold by John, Paul, George, and Ringo, post-Beatles. The genius didn't stop with Abbey Road. This is the classic Beatles music that fans have been missing.

AfterFab is a formidable six-member powerhouse of long-experienced Beatles-expert musicians with a dynamic, entertaining front man and a talent for getting the music right. Not impersonators, but a music-first tribute along the lines of Brit Floyd, Get The Led Out, or The Fab Faux. Based in New England, the band began in 2012, designed from the start as a concert attraction for top music clubs, performing-arts spaces, theatres, and venues that desire to present something special for guests. Misson-driven to convey the brilliance of the solo Beatles' legacy, AfterFab adds extra dimensions of entertainment with back-stories of the songs, fascinating trivia, and video of images of solo Beatles LPs, singles, adverts, and quotations.

"When I first thought of a tribute exclusively to the solo Beatles," says guitarist Ad Boc," I was sure I'd find others doing it. But tributing a 'band' that never actually existed is apparently an idea outside the box. 'Brilliant concept' has been an oft-repeated compliment. The Beatles were my first musical love, and it's exciting to be bringing their solo stuff to live audiences." Ad led original indie-rock bands for 20 years, and his first recruit was long-time collaborator Tom Evans on drums. Next to jump enthusiastically aboard was experienced singer/front-man Jonathan Paquin, a devotee of Paul McCartney and Robert Plant. "I brought myself up on the solo stuff before I discovered The Beatles," says Jon, "I knew Admiral Halsey before I knew Lovely Rita." It then took a year's trial and error to find the rest.

Mike Bishop nailed his bass audition on the first try, no surprise after having logged years in original and cover bands throughout New England and New York. Next in was keyboardist Bryan Eyberg, a pro music instructor with a Master's Degree in Music Performance. Rounding out the line-up is Lauren Passarelli, the first woman ever to graduate as a guitar performance major from Berklee College of Music, where she now teaches and is known as "The Beatles Professor" for her extreme expertise regarding all things Fab Four.

AfterFab constantly build their repertoire of chart hits and iconic album cuts, seeking to please any audience. "Thrilled!" "Elated!" and "Amazing!" were the actual words from management of three venues AfterFab played consecutively in 2014, and the shows got even better from there. The band has been discovered and hailed with excitement by Beatles authors like Robert Rodriguez and Ricardo Pugialli. "They did the solo stuff and rocked it!" said organizer/promoter Charles Rosenay on the radio, following AfterFab's appearance at his 2014 Fab 4 Music Festival: Danbury Fields Forever. MC and radio host Ken Michaels remarked, "They played with a passion. You could see it in their faces. They really practiced and studied the music. And the lead singer, he was outrageous!"
