About The Hum Series
The Hum is an all female/gender queer concert series that celebrates, instigates, and nourishes the community of female musicians in New York City and beyond. Since its formation in April 2015, the series has fostered collaborations between 200+ female and female-identifying musicians including Kimbra, Rachael Price, Yuka Honda, Adrienne Lenker, Olga Bell, Kelsey Lu, members of Tune-Yards, The Cranberries, Cat Power and The Julie Ruin. HUM concerts feature only women on stage, and all walks of life in attendance.

Each installment of the series invites a group of female identified/gender queer musicians to form impromptu “dream bands” bands, shedding the usual dynamics of their main projects and exploring new avenues of their creativity. Long-lasting friendships, creative relationships, and even bands have emerged from these collaborations – not to mention magical results on our stage. The music crosses a constellation of genres and influences, all coming together to form a space where women are linked – not ranked – and celebrated for their artistry on its own terms.

Jessica Lea Mayfield

Mayfield has paved an unconventional lifestyle – playing in her family’s bluegrass band since the age of eight, she didn’t have any traditional schooling and released her first album at the age of fifteen, when she was discovered by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. Influenced by everything from that mountain sound to the modern garage, Mayfield has been able to come at songwriting from a pure perspective, lead more by her heart than any textbook. It’s what makes the tracks of Sorry Is Gone so striking and visceral – there is no filter on the emotions, no rulebook and certainly no excuses for anything she’s been through or the candor she fires.

Sorry Is Gone is Mayfield’s first solo album since 2014’s Make My Head Sing…, which was released to widespread acclaim. Of the album, Rolling Stone asserted, “…Mayfield’s echo-laden bluegrass vocals mesh with scorching electric guitar lines to render remarkable results,” while Pitchfork praised, “There’s something certainly compelling about this raw, minimalist sound” and NPR’s Fresh Air proclaimed, “The music is heavy, but it soars.” Additionally Interview Magazine declared, “Mayfield sounds like she’s finally arrived” and USA Today affirmed, “Her evolution as an artist has been fascinating to hear.” Most recently, in 2015, Mayfield collaborated with Seth Avett on Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith.

(Le) Poisson Rouge Event Tortoise at Le Poisson Rouge, 3-16-2016

(Le) Poisson Rouge

(Le) Poisson Rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences.

LPR prides itself in offering the highest quality eclectic programming, impeccable acoustics, and bold design. The state-of-the art performance space, engineered by the legendary John Storyk/WSDG, offers full flexibility in multiple configurations: seated, standing, in-the-round, and numerous alternative arrangements. The adjoining gallery space — The Gallery at LPR — functions as an art gallery, secondary bar, and event space. A work of art itself, the physical facilities are the embodiment of the experimental philosophy that drives the venue.

LPR is a source you can trust for exposure to visionary work, people of character, and a consistently dynamic environment. We invite you to immerse yourself in a nightlife of true substance and vitality.
