Hey upstate NY state folks: My band The Delorean Sisters is in your neck of the woods, tonight and tomorrow!
We're a country-Americana band -- our first album was a fun concept project, where we took 80s synthpop hits by acts like Depeche Mode and Eurythmics and transformed 'em into country/bluegrass, with three-part country harmonies and banjo. (This worked surprisingly well, since wow -- 80s synthpop has some of saddest damn lyrics I've ever heard. It's basically already hurtin' country music.) Our second album from this spring is an EP of originals', in the same vein of Americana. 'Tis all on Spotify, or Bandcamp if you're looking for glisteningly DRM-free MP3s or vinyl.
Tonight, Fri. Aug. 23 we're in Rochester, playing at Abilene Bar & Lounge at 9 pm; tomorrow night, Sat. Aug. 24 at 8 pm we're in Buffalo, playing Sportsmen's. Come on out and hassle me!
(In the photo, that's our three singers, Gary, Lizzie and Diane, with our bass player Danny -- I'm hiding behind Diane, on electric.)

On the one hand, nostalgia is “a corruption of the historical impulse,” according to William Gibson. On the other hand, “Super Mario Bros.” will never not be cool. Luckily, there’s a way to satisfy that retro gaming while still keeping an eye on the future: The GameShell Kit. This thing is simultaneously the last handheld […]
The field of data analytics can get intimidating, even for business professionals who constantly rely on it. But at its heart, its purpose is to simplify. To take mounds of information and distill their insights into a single clear picture. Currently, the go-to software for painting that picture is Tableau. And if you want to […]
