Sarah Borges and The Broken Singles Two Nights!

Sarah Borges and The Broken Singles Two Nights!

As rock phenoms go, Sarah Borges has never been easy to pin down. Since bursting onto the national scene in 2005 as the lead singer of the Broken Singles, she hasn’t allowed a speck of dust to settle on her sound or her story. Instead, the Massachusetts native has just kept on moving and shaking.

She’s gone from frontwoman to solo act, to frontwoman again. She’s deftly navigated the weird road that winds from emerging artist to veteran performer. She’s made seven records and racked up countless touring miles. She’s collected shiny things, including an Americana Music Award nomination, multiple Boston Music Awards, and song credits on TV shows Sons of Anarchy and The Night Shift. Bands like Los Strait Jackets and Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys have brought her out on the road with them. Cowboy laureates Steve Berlin and Dave Alvin have lined up to collaborate with her.

Night One (11/15) Special Guest Chris Hersch and The Moonraiders

The MoonRaiders debut album “Space Lasso” features six originals by Hersch, and three standards rearranged by Hersch. 

Combining western swing, rock ‘n roll, and country jazz - The MoonRaiders showcase stellar musicians and a unique improvisational style that will please both the dancer and the hardcore music aficionado.  

“Space Lasso” is an interstellar journey of western swing, country jazz, and rock n’ roll!

Night Two (11/16) Special Guest Abbie Barrett

Winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Songwriter, Abbie Barrett and her band present a mix of rock and pop with a bit of quirkiness to boot. The Boston Herald has called her “a contender for best live act,” while the Improper Bostonian has said her “craftsmanship extends from gorgeous vocals … to soaring crescendos … to catchy ’80s-flavored punch.”
