About the performers

The Justin Allen Trio is a little bit reggae, a little bit soul, some pop, some funk and some blues—all wrapped up in a tight five-piece group. Natives of the Berkshires, Allen and his band have been playing music throughout the area in almost every venue for the better half of a decade, and are known for their musicianship and upbeat attitudes.

Justin Allen will return as DJ for Club 7 on August 11. Allen began DJing after hearing Dubstep for the first time at a basement show in 2008. He found himself soaking in as much electronic music as he could find, and soon began making his own using Ableton Live. A night with Justin Allen behind the wheel will cover a wide terrain of electronic styles, from Progressive and Electro-House to Dubstep, Dub, World-Music, and Breakbeats.

Described as a cross between Wilco and Yo La Tengo, the Massachusetts guitar/drum indie rock duo The Burdens have played notable venues, including The Knitting Factory, Pianos, Valentine’s, The Iron Horse, and The Main Stage at Mass MoCa. Their CD Living It Up features 15 original songs that have been described as “the best kind of rock and roll: smart, original, deceptively catchy, emotional yet unsentimental…driven primarily by Scullin’s guitar, with Stack’s drums locking in the groove” (Berkshire Living Magazine). The Burdens perform August 18, along with goodgood.

goodgood delivers cathartic, indie anthems and braided vocal harmonies, musical chemistry, and a sense of humor. They smile while they kick your shins with bittersweet gloom pop. Members of goodgood include Sarah McNair (ukulele, vocals), Jason McNair (bass), and David Edge (guitar, vocals).

DJ BFG is an old-school mixologist trained at NYC's Scratch Academy. Schooled on vinyl, he uses a digital rig to blend funky music from all genres into a seamless groove made for dancing. DJ BFG performs August 25.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is $15 June 1 through October 31. Admission is free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. Admission is free November through May. For more information, call 413 458 2303 or visit clarkart.edu.
