Sunday, October 4th, 2009: RAILROAD EARTH
Watch “Mighty River”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9tE9nOCc9A
“Over the past three years Railroad Earth has carved a path wide and deep throughout the American roots music scene. Right from their first gigs in May 2001, to their most recent shows for their legion of loyal fans, Railroad Earth has been an undeniable force whose superb songwriting, singing and performances from the stage have made them one of the most talked about bands to arrive in years.” – jambase.com
Friday, October 23rd 2009: GRACE POTTER & THE NOCTURNALS
Watch “Apologies”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jP7qYLJEMM
“… this surprising and deeply resonant album lifts Potter and the Nocturnals into the rarefied stratum presently occupied by Wilco and My Morning Jacket—bands that combine a reverence for rock’s rich heritage with a sense of adventure and a need to express something honest and heartfelt.” – gracepotter.com
Saturday, November 14th, 2009: ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO
Watch “Always a Friend” with Bruce Springsteen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iRMv2lnlEw
“When Rolling Stones’ David Fricke describes Alejandro Escovedo to be “…his own genre”, few can disagree. Alejandro has been hailed as everything a musical genius can possibly be and more. His versatility is only complimented with his diverse experience, from punk to rock & roll. He blends rock, folk, blues and classically influenced music into a boundary-defying style that has helped him create his own genre & have a faithful fan- following that cannot be boasted by many contemporary artists.” – onlineseats.com
