Sam Mendales and Chris James

Date(s) - Sat. Aug. 10, 2019
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Sam Mendales and Chris James come to the Armory for an evening of music!

Sam’s blues and folk based recordings have been played on KUT FM (Austin), WBUR, the late WCAS, WUMB, WERS and in a more bizarre moment, Radio Brussels. Recently relocated to the dissertation strewn streets of North Cambridge, Sam continues to write songs about life, love, snails, death and unfortunate culinary choices

Revered singer-songwriter Chris James has a reputation for performing several hours a night, with original songs that sound like covers, and cover songs that sound as good as the originals. His rich vocals and honest writing style tug at the heartstrings with a soulful grit and emotion that gives even his most tender pieces a rock n’ roll edge. James strives to put forth well-crafted, memorable songs with an unbridled spirit brought to light and energized by his enduring band: The Showdowns. Often citing 70’s Americana songwriters as influence, the Northern California based group has graced countless stages and has been played on several FM, XM stations and internet radio worldwide.

Tickets are $10, all ages welcome!
