LOVE LOVE is donating its proceeds from tonight’s ticket sales to Australian Bushfire Relief.

LOVE LOVE IS a rock band with dual male-female lead vocals, psych-country-soul overtones, and a penchant for poignant, often macabre lyrics.

RICK BERLIN is a Boston based musical icon.

As music writer Ted Drozdowski elegantly sums up, “Rick Berlin is a giant on the Boston music scene. His colorful songwriting and strong stage presence have influenced countless other artists since the early 1970s, when his innovative band Orchestra Luna harnessed a potent blend of theater and music years before the Tubes. Throughout the decades and the shifting fortunes of the business Rick has continued to make music with intelligence and integrity, building an international reputation around his knotty, singular piano playing, straight-from-the-heart singing and a style of character-based songwriting thats drawn favorable comparisons to the likes of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen although Rick rocks more than both.

Meryl Pereji has a beautiful, lilting voice that slinks into sultry spunk and vamp. Her music is vibey and romantic. She was born in India but grew up in the United States, and straddles her traditional Indian heritage and American identity with grace and grit. Her first single, Trust Me, is out now. Meryl is hard at work on her first full-length effort.
