Antigone Rising,the all female Country/ Rock band, will be performing at The Rockwood Music Hall on Wednesday, June 20, 2012. The band most recently returned from Israel and The West Bank as Arts Envoys,a cultural initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. During the trip, Antigone Rising performed in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramallah and other regional cities, leading community outreach workshops and making music with Israeli and Palestinian musicians. A truly inspiring trip, Antigone Rising demonstrated that all cultures appreciate and connect to the language of music.
Antigone Rising exploded into the spotlight in 2005 becoming the first band on Starbuck's Hear Music (Lava Records) with their best selling debut LP. A lineup change brought Nini Camps to the band, whose voice blends perfectly with the signature style soaring three part harmonies of founding sisters Kristen Henderson (bass /vocals), Cathy Henderson (lead guitar /vocals) and Dena Tauriello (drums), that Antigone Rising has become known and loved for. The band's latest CD, "23 Red" continues to turn heads as their themes abound with songs that speak to the full range of emotions and life. The band has opened for such acts as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Rob Thomas and The Bangles, and are favorites in festivals around the country.
Opening band US Rails echoes some of the great folk, pop and rock unions of the 60's and 70's as well as the newest super-groups and dream bands spanning the globe these day. US Rails emerges as the underdog collective of songwriters, singers and musicians who deliver not just a night of cool songs and great harmony but leaves you with the kind of lingering memory that you may have experienced hearing some of these bands live for the very first time.
