Tuesday October 21st    
Kem Watts & Andrea Marie 6PM

Tommy Elskes 8:30PM
 
Raised in Lubbock Texas and grew up in a family of musicians. I have been singing since I was a young girl. However, I got a late start in picking up the guitar. I first began writing songs acappella in my early 20's shortly after moving to Austin. I had things to express so I figured I better get with the program and learn how to play an instrument so that I could get my point across the way I heard the melodies in my head. I picked up the guitar and taught myself to play in 2006 and haven't stopped yet. Tommy Elskes(els-kiss) is a musician's musician. He has that all too rare ability to truly affect people with his music. Ask The General Norman Shwarzkopf, Lyle Lovett or my 9 year old son Ryan. They will all tell you he is the best. Tommy's music is a wonderful combination of soulful R&B, blues, rock, country and folk. www.tommyelskes.com

Local favorite, BB Morse of the Fabulous Chevelles and Troubadillos hosts this week's Open Mic    
Thursday October 23rd
 
Zach Day 6PM
Johnson 8:30PM
The Mallett Brothers 10:30PM


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… The Mallett Brothers Band is a nationally touring alt-country/rock band from Maine. Slightly more rock than country, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by folk and singer/songwriter influences as by harder rock, punk and psychedelic sounds. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, the band is rounded out by Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, and Wally on dobro and electric guitar. mallettbrothersband.com

Ru Coleman 4PM

Ladd Smith 6:30PM
Wink Keziah 8PM
  "Once in a blue moon, a new artist comes across your path in a way that makes you go; ‘Why haven’t I heard of this guy before!?’. In a world that seems oversaturated by acts desperately trying to authentically connect, Ladd Smith has single-handedly revived my optimism for the next generation of emerging performers." -Lyric Everly "Hard Times" marks a new direction for Keziah musically. It’s his first solo record without longtime band, Delux Motel, the first project recorded in Los Angeles and perhaps more significantly, Keziah’s exploration of wider avenues in his songwriting, with a conscious shift from a honky-tonk heavy vibe to one that is more balanced between the raucous and the spiritual.
Dennis Jay & Lonesome Town 10:30PM
   
The critics are calling Dennis Jay's music "cowboy minimalism." Dennis calls it "Folk & Western," the label once given to the classic sounds of Ernest Tubb, Lefty Frizzell, Hank Williams, and Marty Robbins. https://www.facebook.com/DennisJayandLonesomeTown
