EARFULL is a performance series featuring writers and musicians doing their respective things in an intimate setting.

WRITERS read from their new books, or about-to-be books, or right from their crumpled up notes.

MUSICIANS range from harpists to horn blowers, from solo songwriters to full-on rock bands.

EARFULL EVENINGS offer food & drink at the venue, and time between acts to socialize.

Feb 21 we welcome authors Douglas Bauer and Laura Zigman, and musical acts Colleen Green and Positively Daves- Featuring Dave Herlihy and Dave Martin from the seminal Boston-based band, O Positive.

More about Earfull HERE!.

Douglas Bauer is the author of three works of nonfiction and four novels including The Book of Famous Iowans.

His latest novel is The Beckoning World, just published in November 2022.

His nonfiction includes The Stuff of Fiction: Advice on Craft, and What Happens Next?: Matters of Life and Death, which won the PEN/New England Award in Non-Fiction.

He is also the editor of the anthologies, Prime Times: Writers on Their Favorite TV Shows and Death by Pad Thai and Other Unforgettable Meals.

He lives in Cambridge, MA and teaches at Bennington College, where he is a core faculty member of the Bennington Writing Seminars MFA program in writing and literature.

Colleen Green is a DIY singer-songwriter and visual artist from Lowell, MA.

Following the release of her debut album, Milo Goes to Compton, Green soon became known in punk circles across the country for performing alone on stage with nothing but a drum machine, sunglasses, and her iconic electric guitar.

After signing with Seattle-based Hardly Art Records (Sub Pop), she released 2015's I Want to Grow Up which brought her critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and the New York Times, as well as being voted Best Solo Act by the LA Weekly.

Laura Zigman is the author of Separation Anxiety, Animal Husbandry, Dating Big Bird, Piece of Work, Her, and now, just out in January 2023, Small World.

As The New York Times so eloquently describes, Small World is ďa graceful swan dive into the question of how a family rearranges itself after the death of a child, (as she takes) one of the saddest subjects imaginable, infuses it with humor and warmth, and raises important questions about how families heal - or donít.Ē Zigman has been a contributor to The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Huffington Post.

She lives in Cambridge.

Positively Daves is an acoustic duo featuring Dave Herlihy and Dave Martin from the seminal Boston-based band, O Positive.

Dave Herlihy is an award-winning singer and songwriter, and has a new EP, Postcards from Kindergarten.

Dave Martin writes melodic, deeply-personal songs, and recently released a full-length recording, The Man from Nantucket.

The Daves play mostly new, original songs, with some O Positive gems and a few well-chosen covers thrown in.
