Gregg Yows 6:30PM
Johnson 8:30PM

Gregg Yows delivers Texas-inspired, back-road, country-ish tunes that marry brutally honest lyrics with poppy hooks grown from fertile seeds planted in the ecclectic compost of Alex Chilton, Bob Mould, Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Elton John, Tom Petty and Bruce Robison. greggyows.com With a sound that is equal parts Robert Johnson (their namesake) and Peter Green - the trio of guitarist Mac McNabb, bassist Chris Johnson, and drummer Kevin Lance play a version of the blues that flies north to Chicago, down through the Mississippi delta, over to late 60’s England, and back. Contrary to burgeoning legend, Johnson hasn’t made a deal with the devil…just yet…

 Brother Nothing 8PM
Ottis Coleman Band 10:30PM

 
"We are but a group of kids on this stage...no matter the age... chasing the dream... and proclaiming to be.... BROTHER NOTHING!" The Ottis Coleman Band with Mark Tays and Robert Hilton is a stripped down, bare bones rock 'n roll trio from Austin, Texas. They feature original tunes that have been written by the plank spanker extraordinaire, Ottis Coleman. This is a tough band to pigeon-hole into a genre, but with the three-part harmonies evolving, the unit is beginning to develop "a sound." www.ottiscolemanband.com

Erez moved here recently and has been performing his original roots-rock-folk songs on stages all over the city. Weaned on and influenced by culture-shaping icons like Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler and J.J. Cale, Erez brings a fresh power and excitement to the classic organic spirit of rock and roll. www.erez-music.com Often sounding like a band possessed, Charlie Pierce and Choctaw Wildfire is an intense, driving honky-tonk trio that consists of piano, upright bass, and drums. During a performance, they will rattle you to the core with a heartbreaking ballad and then unleash a New Orleans inspired boogie that leaves the listener longing for the days when juke joints ruled the American landscape.

Wild Rabbit 9PM

Tessy Lou and the Shotgun Stars spent a month of Sundays at the Pony Bar in Pony, Montana. Bryan Paugh fiddle, Mike Singer banjo, Kenny Williams Doghouse Bass, and Tessy Lou Williams sweet vocals and guitar born to sing the songs that tell the story of life lived in the west. "C'mon Boys!" was the rallying cry as the band worked it's magic for all that were lucky enough to be part of real yahoo time in a by God Montana bar. tessylouwilliams.com With special guest Ariel Nicole. Though all four members of Wild Rabbit (formerly Br'er Rabbit) grew up running around in the farthest Northwest corner of Washington state, brothers Zach and Nathan didn't meet Miranda, the third founding member, until they had all ended up in New York City. This kind of backyard folk seasoned by the edge, polish and fervor of big-city inclinations is at the root of the style they call folk-stomp Americana. The group revamps classic string band instrumentation with homespun percussion and the unique integration of six-string ukulele and cello. www.wildrabbitmusic.com
