Hayes Carll

Travis Linville

Friday, Aug 1 | 8pm

Hayes Carll is an odd mix. Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music, the 35-year old Texan is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and small-minded thinking.

In a world of shallow and shallower, where it’s all groove and gloss, that might seem a hopeless proposition. Last year, “Another Like You,” Carll’s stereotype’s attract duet of polar opposites, was American Songwriter’s #1 Song of 2011 – and KMAG YOYO was the Americana Music Association’s #1 Album, as well as making…

Jenn Grant

Monday, Aug 4 | 8pm

It’s been a long night if that’s what happened,” Valerie June laughs when asked about her seemingly overnight breakout in the UK. By the time she released her debut album, ‘Pushin’ Against A Stone,’ the Tennessee native had already performed on Later… with Jools Holland, sung a stunning duet with Eric Church at the ACM Awards, toured with Jake Bugg, graced spreads in top music and fashion magazines, and earned some of the year’s most glowing reviews. But June traveled a long road to the remarkable moment at which…

Man Man

Landlady

Thursday, Aug 14 | 8pm

Man Man is a fearlessly unique band from Philadelphia. The group’s fifth full length album On Oni Pond features an arresting reconstruction of the group’s visionary sound – stripped to its core and rebuilt as something new and compelling yet still very much Man Man. This marked shift is a direct result of an intensive collaboration between the band’s frontman, Honus Honus, and drummer Pow Pow, who has assumed a new-found prominence in the songwriting process, bringing an exhilarating array of new rhythmic ideas to the mix. “With this…

Black Joe Lewis

with Guests

Friday, Aug 15 | 8pm

Joe Lewis hails from Austin, TX – the collision center where Southern soul meets mid-western blues and vagabond punk. Unable to keep away from the infectious music scene Austin is infamous for, Joe Lewis soaked it all in and soon found himself purchasing his first guitar while working in a pawnshop. The rest is history.

Once compared to “The Godfather of Soul,” we hear Black Joe Lewis letting his punk-flag fly on the group’s third studio album, Electric Slave. Black Joe Lewis perfected his gritty shouting and raw guitar riffs, honing…

Anais Mitchell

Tuesday, Sep 9 | 8pm

“Mitchell is a skilled storyteller…and her delivery gives an emotional complexity that welcomes and even demands repeated listens.” Pitchfork

“Currently a well-kept secret, Mitchell is writing material that stands comparison with the great singer-songwriters of the past few decades” Daily Telegraph

Anaïs Mitchell is first and foremost a storyteller. As a Vermont-based singer-songwriter, Mitchell recorded for Ani Difranco’s Righteous Babe Records for several years before starting her own Wilderland label in 2012. Among her recorded works are five full-length albums, including 2010′s sensationally-reviewed Hadestown– a folk opera based on the Orpheus myth– and…

Mother Falcon

with Guests

Saturday, Sep 13 | 8pm

Mother Falcon began as a jam session among a few adventurous high school cellists eager to break out of the rigid repertoire  predominate in their musical training. In the seven years since, violins, saxophones, trumpet, piano, accordion, banjo, guitars and bassoon have joined that small group of cellists in an indie chamber orchestra of twenty classically trained young musicians determined to push their playing and composing ever further forward.On record, in intense chamber music concerts and in electrifying club performances, Mother Falcon has developed an intricately detailed, yet muscular…

Said The Whale

An indie rock outfit based in Vancouver, Said the Whale was formed by Ben Worcester and Tyler Bancroft. Former members of such bands as My Buddy Dave, the Millionaires, and WordsOverMusic, the two soon expanded the group’s membership to five, adding Jeff LaForge (bass), Spencer Schoening (drums), and Jaycelyn Brown (keyboards). After stabilizing the roster, the band quickly got to work on EP projects, two of which would see release as free online downloads. Their first album, Taking Abalonia, was released in 2007. Canada got another look at the full-length a year later with bonus tracks added (under the…
