For the past few years, the Berklee Popular Music Institute (BPMI) has worked as a connective tool for Berklee students to network with each other as well as more established figures in the music industry. Its goal is to give students the opportunity to perform on some of the biggest stages in music, including festival slots like Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Outside Lands and more.
This week, BPMI is now gearing up to release Dorm Sessions 12, the latest in a compilation series from Heavy Rotation Records, the group’s student-run label. To mark the occasion, some of the bands that appear on the comp will get together to perform a showcase at the Sinclair on Thursday 2/16. It’s a stacked lineup that includes Lady Pills, Flakes, Olivia Swann, Aversed, D-Will and Jack Martini. This wide spread of sounds will delight showgoers who love rock, pop, electronic, soul and even metal, so the compilation and show have some awesome tunes in store for just about anyone. Cover is $5 with a student ID and $10 for general admission.
