Live Music: Lament & Vespera
September 22 @ 9:00 pm - 1:00 am$5.00
Lament is vocalist Zach Reynolds, guitarist Billy Hughes, guitarist Rob Lembo, bassist Kyle Lamarre, and drummer Jeremy Prims. Formed in late 2005, Lament serves up strong lyric writing and powerful bass work with intense guitar play over tireless drumming, a massive metal-onslaught! In this day of everything sounding and looking the same, Lament has somehow created a uniquely engaging sound and proves themselves to be a part of New England Metal.
The members of Vespera (from Plainville, CT) grew up as best friends, and have been together since February 2001. They recorded a 6-track demo in 2004, and soon began to make a name for themselves by playing shows in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, along with a gig at the legendary CBGB’s in New York City and an invitation to perform New England’s prestigious NEMO Music Festival. They’ve played with numerous national acts including Chevelle, Finger Eleven, Helmet, Trapt, Crossfade, Saliva, Strata, Taproot, Smile Empty Soul and many more. Vespera’s live performance is highlighted with intense energy from twin brothers Konstantine(Charlie) Bourlogiannis and Thanasi(Tommy) Bourlogiannis. With explosive vocals from Mike Boccuzzi and drummer Jon Murphy, Vespera’s live show is one within itself that will be sure to draw the attention of all. The band says that they “share the same passion for performing, music itself, and more importantly, each other.”, Vespera are currently playing live shows and recording material for a soon to be released album.
