tue @ Abbey Lounge [Nov. 21st, 2005|03:16 pm]
Amber Spyglass
Come out, Come out from wherever you are.

Leah Callahan has a new band called The Glass Set. She got a whole bunch of bands together for her Abbey residency this month to help celebrate her new CD release…And those who know her – know she’s an excellent party planner – so come out and celebrate with us!

What: The Glass Set residency party…it’s a PARTY
When: Tuesday 11/22, 7pm–1am
Where: Abbey Lounge,3 Beacon St Sq Somerville www.abbeylounge.com 21+

The following is encouraged: Dancing, fancy dresses, exotic beverages, craziness, leftover Halloween candy, sing-a-longs, and massages…

Leah Callahan says this about Amber Spyglass… "Mix This Mortal Coil with a touch of Nino Rota and you have what Amber Spyglass has become. A pair of lovers with as deep a love for their musical creations as for each other; they take you to the Middle East by way of the Wild West, to create a splendid collection of songs where John has let his expansive musical fantasies run wild to frame his muse, Kelly, with golden gilded splendor."

Main Stage- features all Ominous Collective bands except us - we are the OmColl guests of the night :) www.ominouscollective.net

9:00 Optic Rose (electronic, industrial, acoustic guitars, speak- n-says, performance art)
9:45 Thylacine (swirl of rock/pop melody, gritty guitar and electronic ambience)
10:45 Amber Spyglass – uh huh – that’s us…and we’re doing a special song in our set.sshhh.
11:45 Glass Set (death disco - have you heard their Cure cover?)

RIP - Evelyn 1991?-2005 [Aug. 6th, 2005|11:52 pm]
Amber Spyglass
[mood |calmcalm]

For those who knew Evelyn, you'll remember her as a stoic yet friendly indoor/outdoor cat who goes way back to the days of Foster St. house in Brighton in the early 90's.  As a stray kitten somewhere around Park Drive in the Fenway (I was told), she was given to a former roomate prior to my inheriting her. She left Thursday 8/4/05 @ 8:05pm here at the house. Kelly & I were with her.    ~John D~

this Sunday - Humanwine, Dreamchild, Amber Spyglass, Desar [Jul. 29th, 2005|10:26 am]
Amber Spyglass
Middle East Upstairs (www.mideastclub.com)
Sunday, July 31st Doors open at 9:00 PM
18+ show cover charge of $8.00.
Don't miss what should prove to be a night of powerful and unpredictable performances!

The evening will begin with the wonderful Désar (www.desar.com_, who will brilliantly stroke the piano keys to bring forth beautiful and melancholy music of note...

This will be followed by the always striking and seductive music of Amber Spyglass (www.amberspyglass.net), with the unforgettable vocals of Kelly surrounded and supported by the intricate, interwoven sounds orchestrated by the multi-talented John D.

As we mentioned previously, Lucien Désar and Frank & Cheryl of Dreamchild will join Amber Spyglass for part of their set. In late breaking news, expect to also see Kelly of Amber Spyglass grace the stage during Dreamchild's performance of Salome! So the night's performances will flow together, combining together in an unexpected way.

Then, of course, you know what to expect from Dreamchild (www.dreamchildmusic.com)...an over-the-top and theatrical (some even say scary) invitation to be consumed by and subsumed in their ethereal nightmares and fever dreams...

Finally, the evening will end with an intriguing and intense set by the uniquely dramatic Humanwine. Holly provides the powerful and compelling vocals, while Matt and the rest of the band create a sound which is strong, rhythmic - and distinctively their own.
