Charlie Mars on Coffeehouse

Charlie Mars on Coffeehouse

“I only went to the party cause I heard you might be there.” This is the lyric that pops up on the screen then fades away if you visit Charlie Mars’ website, and just that one line conveys a lot of what makes Mars important as an artist. Sure it’s simple, but it carries a […]

Sky Ferreria at T.T. the Bear’s

Joshua Radin on Coffeehouse

Joshua Radin on Coffeehouse

Early this cold Saturday morning, the sun was just barely pushing through the clouds when singer-songwriter Joshua Radin, accompanied by backup guitarist Brandon Walters, trundled into the WERS studio to play a few stripped-down acoustic versions of several of tracks from his newest album, Underwater.
