Lights in the Quarry


Just in time for their May 2nd official release of their first album, “Lights in the Quarry,” the Amherst punk-folk trio Mallory stopped by for their first official Sweet Baby Lou Session.

Kicking off with their self described anthem, “One Hand Extended to You, the Other to Traffic” the band tore through a high energy set that brought a punk energy not usually seen with musicians wielding mandolins, acoustic guitars and banjos. 

The band consisting of Justin Fallon (bass, vocals), Andre Ricard (guitar, banjo, vocals) and Niko Para (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Mallory played a set drawing heavily from their new release including songs like “The Quarry,” “Swinging Against Fascism” and “God and the Details.”

Their CD will officially be released this weekend and for more information you can visit the group’s website.

Last Saturday, Pink Voyd, a traveling replication of the music of celebrated rock icons Pink Floyd, hit the Mullins Center in Amherst, MA. Sweet Baby Lou was fortunate enough to lend some luck listeners free tickets to the event, and was also able to score us a sweet interview with the group’s guitarist Walter Stickle. In the interview Walter takes us through the history of the band, as well as his expectations for the show.

The Telephone Company

This installment from our From the Vault series also comes from our jam-packed 40th Anniversary show. This video finds the studio in flux between big name acts like Alex Sacchetti, Motown Man and most notably The Telephone Company who blazed through a reworked version of their one-time epic jam “Madonna.” The new version came complete with The Telephone Company’s hard-edged vocals and roaring intensity. Take a peek.
