Jules Olson / Margot Ross / Brian Flores
Avalon Lounge (Catskill) at 7:30 p.m
Hudson Valley native Olson is a singer/songwriter with an appropriately outdoorsy sound influenced by jazz, country, R&B, folk and indie rock. Her voice is silky smooth and perfect, and her instruments have a relaxed Sunday morning feel to them. Her compositions hide harmonic twists, but remain extremely accessible.

Truth Club / Jelly Kelly
Tubby’s (Kingston) at 7:00 p.m
Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina, Truth Club is full of moss, atmosphere, and shifting dynamics to 90s grunge and shoegaze. The singing and spaced-out songwriting is pleasantly Strokes-y and Cloud Nothings in melody and delivery. With inventive guitar lines and unexpected changes in time signature and volume, Truth Clubs keeps the audience on their feet throughout.

Tyondai Braxton / Jefre Cantu-Ledesma / Ben Vida Trio / Booker Stardrum / Yuka C Honda & Grace Villamil / Chantal Michelle
Old Dutch Church (Kingston) at 6:00 p.m
Braxton is most widely known as the founding father of the offbeat math-rock act Battles, but his musical life only got more interesting after leaving the group in 2010. He went on to collaborate with some of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, through some of the most famous places: Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall and the Guggenheim Museum, to name a few.
His sonic masterpieces are usually formed on the cutting edge of experimental music, but remain accessible, foreign but not alienating. Some compositions are subdued and cinematic, others are frenetic, melodically adventurous and rhythmically complex. It’s a rare treat to have talent of this magnitude in our small town, in such a unique venue as the Old Dutch Church, no less. Expose yourself to sounds so strange and satisfying that they’ll echo in your mind for years.

Towne Crier Cafe (Lighthouse) at 6:00 p.m

Sam Prekop / Greg Davis / Cloud Circuit / Jessica Pavorn and Tristen Kasten Krause
Avalon Lounge (Catskill) at 7:00 p.m
Jazzy indie rock is a rather underrated genre. Among its champions, The Sea and Cake stands tall as an example of the magic that can come from mixing harmonically complex chords and progressions with an indie musical sensibility. In the group setting, Sam Prekop delivers a calm melancholy with his unique vocal melodies and strumming electric guitar. In his more avant-garde solo work, expect soundtrack-like synths, spacious ambient tones, and repetitive yet inventive melodies. The rest of the bill is full of eccentric electronic music acts worth getting there early for.
