Michael Levinsohn, General Manager of Rep Records and member of Frank & Dependent, will be hosting Red Records’ premiere event – the Backyard Block Party. There will be food provided, local bands performing, and booths filled with cool stuff at the festival. The best part of the night is that ALL of the proceeds will be donated to the Jimmy Fund to support cancer research and care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. What better way to enjoy great music and company than to help support such an awesome fund?

Here’s the lineup:

Frank & Dependent will be headlining.
(Boston University)

The Rare Occasions
Two of the four members go to Berklee:
Luke Imbusch–Drummer in his 6th semester studying as a Film Scoring major
Jeremy Cohen–Bassist in his 6th semester pursuing a dual major in Music Therapy/Performance

Orca Orca
(Allston)

Anjimile
Raised in the suburbs of Richardson, TX, Anjimile’s sunny southern harmonies and upbeat instrumentation juxtaposed against her sardonic lyrics create a symphony of sarcasm and soulful grooving.
