Steve Allain w/ Diane Battistello in Concert
Born about a half an hour west of Boston, Massachusetts, in the city of Marlborough, to French-Canadian parents, Steve Allain was raised on country music and Elvis Presley records. He always daydreamed about playing in a band. When Steve was nine, his family returned to New Brunswick, Canada. Family get togethers with uncles, aunts, and cousins gave him his first experiences with live music. Although many relatives played instruments, it would be nine more years before Steve bought his first guitar. By this time, he had been exposed to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd and The Beatles. In the years to follow, Steve spent most of his free time immersed in music. Listening to everything that he could get his hands on and playing guitar sparked an interest in writing and performing music. He eventually graduated from The Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California, and later received a Bachelors and a Masters degree in music. These years really helped to shape the musician/composer/songwriter that he has become. Not limited to playing in rock bands and jazz quartets, Steve also composed for classical and experimental ensembles. This melting pot of styles has and continues to shape his musical approach. Not one to be pigeonholed, Steve has returned to songwriting armed with years of experience and diversity creating a smart and unique blend of music that is widely varied, yet highly accessible to a broad audience. His album "thirteen", released in May 2011, has been garnering much attention. Here are some things being said about Steve and the album: Allains new album thirteen is a well-crafted recording that cuts across acoustic blues, country, and folk genres. He has earned the respect of many notable peers. (Chris Conti - Providence Phoenix), "Thirteen contains 12 original Allain comps featuring Steves soulful vocals and skilled finger picking on guitar. Lots of good stuff etched into the shiny silver CD." (John Fuzek - Motif Magazine). Steve has been praised for his excellent musicianship and soulful voice. He is a must see live. Steve Allain is currently living in Providence, Rhode Island.

The Survival Guide for Black Bodies Encore

We brought it back! Our first hack lab was so awesome we wanted to do it again. Bigger and Better! Free event with ask of a $5 donation if you can. We also ask if you have any props, make up, or costumes that would be great addition, bring it.

Read our inspiration:

As a response to the current state of race relations in the U.S., we are calling for people to come together and create "The Survival Guide for Black Bodies". This will be a compilation of rules and regulations for surviving in the U.S. as the owner of a black body. The rules of race in America are absurd and important to make visible. A sample rule for a Black Body is: "Don't be loud in public or play loud music."

We will be creating a book in a day through a multimedia production involving creatives, concerned citizens, youth, and more collaborating to produce this guide. This satirical guide is meant to comment on the violence against black people being perpetuated and raise our consciousness about the drastic nature of racial relations in the United States. Hence, sparking a movement to change the perceptions of black bodies.

If you have any question, contact Chrislene or Terry at

See you there,

Chrislene and Terry
