A Bit Cagey subjects you to our thought pieces.
- Sajida Jalalzai
A Bit Cagey got a mention in a recent post on WoodTurtle, a blog about Islam and feminism. WoodTurtle interviewed ABC’s Sajida Jalalzai about their recent performance in Boston, MA. ABC opened their show with a recitation from the Qur’an, the sacred text of Islam. Sajida discusses why the band decided to begin their performance this way, and why her recitation might cause a stir in some communities.
A Bit Cagey’s Live Debut!
After months of songwriting, niggling with music software on our laptops, and tinkering with toy pianos, we finally made our live debut on March 26, 2011, in Boston, MA. We were honored to headline a night of incredible performances by amazing acts by runjumpfly, Elephant Sky, John Clements, and Dice Motion.
It was so much fun to share our music with so many friends and who came from near and far to support us.
We hope that this show kicks off a summer of lots of performing. We truly had a blast, and are looking forward to sharing our music with you.
Sajida and Melissa

Kiss summer goodbye. Get ready for ABC.
As always, the summer has flown by and A Bit Cagey are busily working on lots of exciting new tracks for their upcoming EP. Keep an eye out for word on release dates. In other news, ABC were recently seen at a short performance in London, Ontario, where they performed covers from Bjork, Radiohead, and Reindeer Section. We’re still at work writing and rehearsing, and are planning a basement show scheduled for this winter, with more shows to follow. If you want to hear us, please send booking inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Enjoy what remains of the sweet summer days. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
A Bit Cagey
While Sajida endures 106° temperatures in Cairo, I’ve been sweating in Berklee classrooms with broken AC at a much more manageable 87°. But I’ve been packing the information in and am working hard to apply new mixing concepts to A Bit Cagey’s upcoming EP. Beginning in August ABC will be switching gears from recording to rehearsing as we push to have a solid live show ready for the Fall. I have been working hard to map out the live audio so that we can create an authentic wall of sound with only the two of us manning all of the acoustic and electronic parts. In other news, we are blessed to have some talented artists helping to design some limited edition EPs; more on that in the coming months. This is an exciting time for A Bit Cagey—formative and meaningful for our future. We couldn’t be happier about the opportunities that are coming our way. As always, keep checking back for news, have a carefree Summer, and be well.
Greetings from Cairo
This summer I’ve traded in an ever-exciting New York City summer, (complete with free concerts, Shakespeare/opera/jazz in the park, open air-film festivals, and all the gourmet ice cream one can desire) to spend the hot months of June and July in Cairo, Egypt. After over a week in the largest city in Africa and the Arab world, I’m slowly learning about where to find the Cairene hot spots of culture and entertainment, as well. While brushing up on my Arabic, visiting the Pyramids, and niggling with my midi controller in World-Cup-broadcasting cafes (or ‘ahwas, as they’re called in Egyptian Arabic), I’m also taking a class on Middle Eastern music, training with a maestro from a local music troupe. I’m excited to bring these new perspectives and sounds to A Bit Cagey. It’s an incredibly inspirational time for me, and I’ll be sure to keep you all updated.
