NEW YORK CITY - In support of their forthcoming new album, British music legends Soft Machine will embark on their first North American tour since 1974 in October 2018, followed by the second North-American leg of the tour in January/February 2019. In concert, their set list will include material from all parts of the band's repertoire from 1970 onward, but this is emphatically not a nostalgia act resting on its laurels. Last weekend Soft Machine played their first two shows in North America since 1974 (it was in 1974 they toured USA and Canada during the Bundles/Allan Holdsworth era). Both shows, at the Montreal Jazz Festival and Quebec City, were exceptionally well received by the enthusiastic audience and local press.

BELLOWS FALLS, VERMONT – Since launching in 2012, the BF Community Bike Project, a non-profit community bike center located at 30 Henry Street in Bellows Falls, has grown by leaps and bounds over its’ six-year journey, with another new expansion coming in the near future. Founded by Executive Director, Bonnie Anderson, the original mission of the program is to provide local community access to reclaim bikes and bike repair skills, as well as encouraging safe biking as a means of affordable transportation, self-sufficiency and overall health and wellness. All donated bikes are cleaned up and restored, and then sold at a low cost, and hundreds of bikes have been put back out on the street.

BELLOWS FALLS, VERMONT - Joe Milliken still remembers the first time he heard the synthesizer-infused rock ’n’ roll that stormed onto the airwaves in 1978 with the self-titled debut album of The Cars. From the fire of Elliot Easton’s lead guitar to the ice of Greg Hawkes’ synthesizer, “Just What I Needed” didn’t sound like anything else on the radio in the early summer of 1978.
