The Mulligan Brothers is an Americana Folk-Rock band from Mobile, Alabama. In golfers’ terms, a “mulligan” is a second chance, and the band represents a second chance for each member of The Mulligan Brothers. Veterans of other bands, this is where they found the music they always wanted to play.
 
The songwriting and warm, honest, straight-to-the heart voice of lead singer of Ross Newell draws listeners into the group’s signature sound, where the harmonies of Greg DeLuca, Ben Leininger and Melody Duncan make the songs soar or haunt from the shadows. De Luca plays drums and Leininger is on the suitcase bass -- which Newell made out of two suitcases, a smoke alarm and his grandmother’s walking stick. Fiddler Melody Duncan recently joined the band, bringing a female voice and perspective.
 
The group’s new single, “Divine Design,” is about being taken advantage of by the person you love. “The offender doesn’t see it as hurting someone else, but as helping himself or herself,” says Newell. “It is a terrible feeling and I want the song to create an awareness of what it is like to be treated that way, whether it is intentional or not. I want the listener to think if this is a song about them or the people around them. If this is divine design, then divine design is behind the times.”...more

STIG

Consisting of 5 close friends, STIG aims to bring people together with their music. The tight communication and positive energy shared between everyone in the group brews a raw and exciting experience at every show. STIG came together during their time at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. They spent most of their first year together playing sweaty, overflowing basement shows in Allston, the student filled neighborhood in Boston. STIG’s music is all original and is always written as a group to draw from everyone’s genre-crossing influences.

STIG is constantly touring, working hard to bring the vibrant soundscape of funky improvisational music to people all across the country. They released their first live album, “FLEX”, in September of 2016 and their EP, "Downtown Tom" was released in July of 2017. “Live at The Orpheum” was just released in October. The band has brought their high energy live show from coast to coast and is continuing to fill their calendar with national tour plans. Be on the lookout for new music, videos and tour dates from STIG!!

“Feel-good funk...played with the freewheeling abandon you would hope to hear from a bunch of very young, very talented musicians in the act of discovery”

James McMurtry continues riding waves of universal acclaim for Complicated Game. “At a stage where most veteran musicians fall into a groove or rut, McMurtry continues to surprise,” Texas Music magazine recently noted. “[Complicated Game] is a collection of narratives as sharply observed as any from McMurtry, but with a contemplative depth that comes with maturity.” Indeed, the Austin resident's latest collection spotlights a singular craftsman as he turns inward (“These Things I've Come to Know,” “You Got to Me”). “The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships,” McMurtry says. “It's also a little about the big old world versus the poor little farmer or fisherman.”

Either way, McMurtry spins his stories with a novelist’s eye (“Long Island Sound”) and a painter's precision (“She Loves Me”) throughout. “[McMurtry] takes listeners on a road trip of unprecedented geographic and emotional scope,” No Depression raved of Complicated Game. “Lyrically, the album is wise and adventurous, with McMurtry — who’s not prone to autobiographical tales — credibly inhabiting characters from all walks of life.” “[McMurtry] fuses wry, literate observations about the world with the snarl of barroom rock,” National Public Radio echoed. “The result is at times sardonic, subversive and funny, but often vulnerable and always poignant.”

Longtime fans know McMurtry’s vibrant vignettes have turned heads for more than a quarter-century now. His critically successful first album Too Long in the Wasteland (1989), which was produced by John Mellencamp, marked the beginning of a series of acclaimed projects for Columbia and Sugar Hill Records. In 1996, McMurtry received a Grammy nomination for Long Form Music Video for “Where’d You Hide the Body.” Additionally, It Had To Happen (1997) received the American Indie Award for Best Americana Album. In his long career, songs like “Childish Things,” “Choctaw Bingo,” “Peter Pan,” “Levelland,” and “Out Here in the Middle” only begin the list of high watermarks. (Yes, Robert Earl Keen covered those last two, “Levelland” remaining a live staple.) Childish Things (2005) scored endless critical praise and spent six full weeks topping the Americana Music Radio chart. In 2006, it won the Americana Music Association’s Album of the Year. The track “We Can’t Make It Here” was named that rapidly rising organization’s Song of the Year, and was cited among The Nation’s "Best Protest Songs Ever.” Just Us Kids (2008) earned McMurtry his highest Billboard 200 chart position in nearly two decades and notched Americana Music Award nominations. Just Us Kids alone includes fan favorites “Hurricane Party,” “Ruby and Carlos” and “You’d a Thought.” Songs detailing the lives of everyday people, like “Fireline Road,” pierce listeners’ hearts with sharp sociopolitical commentary. “James McMurtry may be the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation,” said Stephen King.

Fun loving bluegrass string band music from NW Arkansas

GET TICKETS

Arkansauce is a genre-hopping, five piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, and country. With two albums under their belt in the last two years, and a loyal following growing every day in the Natural State, the band is proud to be stepping into a hard-driving sound they can call their own. The band’s roots go back to 2011 when founding members Ethan Bush, Zac Archuleta, and Stephen Jolly began picking together after becoming acquainted through mutual connections in the close-knit Fayetteville music scene. After a couple of years building a repertoire of original music and releasing their first album as a trio, the boys were joined by Tom Andersen on the upright and Adams Collins on the five-string banjo. The road-tested chops Andersen and Collins brought to the table helped to cultivate the mature, well-rounded sound needed to accommodate their sophomore release “All Day Long.” An Arkansauce show is riddled with improvisational guitar, banjo, and mandolin leads, paired with powerful harmonies and heart-felt songwriting. There’s an undeniably intimate connection between the band and their fans that's contagious and leaves everyone in front of, and on the stage wanting more. The boys of Arkansauce hold their heads high, as they look forward to enjoying everything the music they love has in store for them and their fans.

DeVotchKa’s new album, “Live with the Colorado Symphony” (Cicero Recordings LTD). The band, a melting pot of genres, forms an authentic and wholly original style of rock ‘n’ roll. DeVotchKa have been recording and performing for over a decade. “We have been working towards this moment ever since the band began,” remembers Nick Urata, lead singer and frontman for DeVotchKa. “We've always had orchestral leanings, we wrote for more and more players with every album, when the chance to perform with an entire symphony came, we jumped at it. We thought it would be the perfect night for a live recording and hope the listener feels like they are in the room with us.” 

A once in a lifetime opportunity for a band, some of DeVotchKa’s most iconic songs were revisited, restructured, and performed with a full 60-piece orchestra. Rather than hire a composer to create the charts for each instrument, the band took it upon themselves, with Tom Hagerman spending months locked away in his garage fleshing out each note that the orchestra performed.

The premise of charting DeVotchKa’s songs for a large symphony began shortly after the release of the band’s score for the film “Little Miss Sunshine”. A critical and box office hit, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa's soundtrack, a Grammy. The band from Denver finally received the attention they deserved around the world, headlining large venues and performing at practically every major music festival, from Coachella to Bonnaroo, Glastonbury to Pukkelpop. The band looks forward to performing with symphonies of all sizes whenever possible.

“Live with the Colorado Symphony” gave the band a chance to have every melody, harmony, and counterpoint, recorded in the studio, to be translated to real people, playing the parts together. 

American Aquarium with Special Guest Jaime Wyatt

raw, rootsy rock & roll

8/1/2018 7:00pm

$12 · 6:00pm · All Ages / Bar with ID
GET TICKETS

For nearly a decade, American Aquarium have spent the majority of their days on the road, burning through a sprawl of highways during the day and playing hours of raw, rootsy rock & roll at night. Sometimes, the job is a grind. Most times, it's a blessing. American Aquarium's songs, filled with biographical lyrics about last calls, lost love and long horizons, have always explored both sides of that divide. For every drunken night at the bar, there's a hangover in the morning. For every new relationship, there's the chance of a broken heart. It's that kind of honesty — that sort of balance — that makes the band's newest album, Wolves, their strongest release to date.

And it nearly didn't happen. When American Aquarium traveled to Muscle Shoals to record Burn.Flicker.Die. in 2012, they were convinced the album would be their last. Even though they had enlisted the help of award-winning singer-songwriter Jason Isbell to produce the sessions, they were exhausted; weathered and whittled to the bone by more than a half-decade of heavy partying and heavier touring. To a small group of diehard fans, they were absolute rockstars… but being rockstars to a cult audience doesn't always put food on your table or gas in your tank. BJ Barham, the band's frontman, was so poor that he'd been living out of a storage unit for months, unable to afford an apartment in the band's hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Clearly, something had to give. Maybe it was time to make one final album — an album about failure, desperation and disillusionment — and then throw in the towel.

As fate would have it, Burn.Flicker.Die. eventually proved itself to be the band’s most successful release to date. Critics loved it. Fans rallied behind it. Fast forward 2 years and almost 500 shows later, the band has travelled the world, quadrupled their fan base and reinvented their passion for the road. When the time came to record another album in June 2014, it only made sense to do something that celebrated survival rather than failure.

The result? Wolves, which Barham describes as "the sound of a band firing on all cylinders". Produced by Megafaun's Brad Cook and recorded during a 20-day stay at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, Wolves was funded entirely by American Aquarium’s diehard fanbase. The album’s 10 tracks represent a departure from the band’s signature twang. Instead drawing more from the alternative rock sound that inspired their name almost a decade ago. Wolves blends the twang of the pedal steel with the dark, dirty swirl of two electric guitars, creating a sound that's fit for the roadhouse, the honky tonk and the dive bar. Barham has certainly spent time in all three, but now looks to brighter horizons in these new songs.

"I've always written about being the drunk guy at the bar at 2 a.m.," he admits. "I've written about the pick-up lines and the drinking and the drugs. This record is more personal than that. It's a coming of age record."

It's also a record that reaffirms his faith in American Aquarium, a band he started in 2006. Since that time, more than 25 musicians have passed through the group's ranks. In recent years though, things have felt a lot more stable. Ryan Johnson, Bill Corbin, Whit Wright, Kevin McClain and the newest addition, Colin Dimeo, round out the group, turning Barham's songs into fiery, fleshed-out compositions.

With Wolves, which hit stores in early 2015, American Aquarium is literally bigger and better.

"We were legitimized by Burn.Flicker.Die.," Barham says. "That album was a breakup record with the road. It basically said, 'This is our last album, this is why we're quitting, and hey, thanks for the memories.' Fast-forward, though, and we've got a new record that says, 'We ain't done yet.'"

 

Jaime Wyatt

Jaime Wyatt’s newest release Felony Blues, whose title is a nod to records like David Allan Coe’s Penitentiary Blue, is largely an autobiographical collection of convict love stories, prison songs, and honky-tonk laments. 

Wyatt is a striking figure with an old soul and a voice like a force of nature. Regardless of genre, the Los Angeles-based Wyatt is a dynamic performer, who sails naturally between vintage ‘60s and ‘70s country/rock ’n’ soul anthems and heartfelt country ballads of love and corruption. Country radio station 95.3 The Bear recently named her, alongside Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price, as “one of the country artists you may not have heard of, but need to hear.”

Tickets are $31 in advance, $35 day of show (including all service charges).  $1 from each ticket sold will go to the Ghetto Youth Foundation.

The second son of Bob and Rita Marley, Stephen Marley was born on April 20, 1972; he began his career as a precocious six-year old singing, dancing and playing percussion with his siblings in the group The Melody Makers whose first single "Children Playing In The Streets" was produced by their father in 1979 and released on Tuff Gong, the label founded by Bob in the late 60s. Just like his older brother Ziggy, Stephen acquired his initial studio skills by watching his father. While still a teenager he assisted in the production of The Melody Makers' albums including their three Best Reggae Album Grammy winners "Conscious Party" (Virgin Records, 1989) "One Bright Day" (Virgin Records, 1990) and "Fallen Is Babylon" (Elektra Entertainment, 1998). In 1993 Ziggy and Stephen founded Ghetto Youths International as a means of controlling their own music and helping upcoming artists. Stephen's earliest solo production efforts for Ghetto Youths International includes his late grandmother's (Cedella Booker) album "My Altar", followed in 1995 by the Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers single "Works To Do" and younger brother Damian's "10,000 Chariots". Both singles hit the Jamaican charts and generated much excitement surrounding Stephen's burgeoning production expertise. 

The first project that brought Stephen's production capabilities widespread attention was "Chant Down Babylon", where he audaciously manipulated his father's original vocal outtakes from the 1970s Island Records' sessions, splicing them into duets with hip-hop and R&B artists, while updating the Wailers' richly textured one-drop rhythms with an assortment of samples, loops and overdubs. The results ranged from the late Guru's heartfelt take on "Johnny Was" to Busta Rhymes' street version of the reverential "Rasta Man Chant" to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry's hard rocking raucousness on "Roots Rock Reggae". "Chant Down Babylon" achieved its objective of bringing Bob's music to a new generation of fans, earned a Grammy nomination, was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold more than one million copies worldwide. 

His 2011 album Revelation Pt. 1 – The Root of Life won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2012. The follow-up, Revelation Pt. 2 - The Fruit of Life was released in 2016. The New York Times wrote of Revelation Pt. 2, "Mr. Marley’s aching voice suits love songs just as well as protests... and more often than not, Mr. Marley lives up to the ambition that his last name demands of him."

These guys are Melvins.  Not THE Melvins, but sometimes members of the Melvins. Sound is similar with a vocal dissonance reminiscent of Vikings from outerspace 

BIG BUSINESS’ 5th studio album COMMAND YOUR WEATHER.  Recorded in Joshua Tree, CA, Command Your Weather sees Big Business return to its original two-man lineup of Jared Warren and Coady Willis.  It’s a haunting dream about the struggle for dominance of will over the power and unpredictability of nature.  Or it’s just a really great rock record, it depends on how weird you’re willing to get..  But you’ve never had so much fun being crushed in the cogs of the universe’s great machine, that much is for sure!  I mean, there’s no law against having a couple cold beers while we all burn in the fire of time, am I right?!

Recorded by Dave Curran of UNSANE/PIGS/BIG BUSINESS’ LAST RECORD fame.

Founded in 2003 in Seattle, WA., Big Business has spent the last 13 years touring the world and making records.  In 2006 Jared and Coady joined forces with the Melvins and moved to Los Angeles.  Performing as members of the Melvins and staying autonomous as their own band, they have been there ever since.

Another full weekend packed with workshops, yoga, song, dance, ceremony and celebration amidst the backdrop of the Sangre De Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico!

Thursday September 6th - Sunday September 9th 2018!

Featuring The Polish Ambassador (2 nights!), Wildlight Live, Ayla Nereo, and much of our beloved Jumpsuit family of music makers!

Jumpsuit Records strives for community, to bring people together to celebrate in song and nature in some of our favorite places around the world. Those of you who were there to expereince our first year in Taos know just how much magic we all generated together throughout the weekend! With many of our workshops led by the musicians on our line-up we all got to know each other so well and learned so much together. This is truly a grass-roots gathering at its core... it was a common sight to see one of our crew playing their heart out on stage one minute, chopping firewood for the bonfire another minute and then connecting with one another in the crowd the next. We lean towards the progressive and unconventional, putting the focus on uplifting art and partying with a purpose. We know that our extended family covets an intimate festival experience, one that fosters connection, encourages participation, offers education and the promise of invigorating life experiences. With those understandings and a nod towards a fresh take on the conventional festival model, The Polish Ambassador and Jumpsuit Records are thrilled to head back to the expansive beauty of the high deserts of New Mexico!

Taos Mesa Brewing Amphitheater sits just outside of downtown Taos, New Mexico, and features 360 degree stunning views of the high desert and Sangre de Cristo mountains. Complete with onsite restaurant, craft brewery, and an amazing outdoor amphitheater build in the Earthship style native to New Mexico. To preserve intimacy and create a vibrant pop-up community, less than 1000 festival tickets that include camping will be offered. These will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. The views from the venue and the onsite campground are some of the finest in the universe.

Taos is surrounded by stunning natural beauty in every direction. To the west, a few minutes from the venue, you will find the iconic Rio Grande River Gorge where you can hike, swim, and bask in local hot springs. To the east lies the town of Taos as well as the historic Taos Pueblo, which is the oldest continuously inhabited Indigenous community in the US. Downtown Taos features a beautiful Plaza where you will find delicious NM cuisine as well as a Farmer's Market and amazing local art & crafts.

Human camping passes must be purchased in addition to the full festival ticket... in addition each vehicle entering the campground will require a Car Camping Pass. Car Camping Passes include camping with your car. Less shlepping... more time to set up your ultimate camp village with all of your friends! Also.. ALL festival tickets AND camping tickets include Thursday arrival!

We will have MANY more details and announcements in the coming weeks! So stay tuned...

About MYSTIC BRAVES

Mystic Braves might be rooted in the psychedelic scene of the 1960s, but the band’s moment is happening right now.

After an impressive 2016 North American tour boasting packed shows from Brooklyn to San Francisco and beyond, the band returned home to Los Angeles only to sell out their homecoming show at the Echo, in advance. It’s only the latest in a string of triumphs for the band, who saw record turnout around the USA and for their winter European 2016 tour with sell out shows in London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Leon (Purple Weekend) and several other European cities.

Based in Echo Park, the Braves — who are signed to influential indie label Lolipop Records — are at the forefront of a white-hot garage band revival, and when the band isn’t selling out shows across the country, they’re playing alongside legendary groups like The Zombies and Brian Jonestown Massacre or providing the soundtrack for can’t-miss fashion events like Saint Laurent Paris’ Spring-Summer 2015 collection. While the group — made up of Julian Ducatenzeiler on guitar and vocals, Tony Malacara on bass and vocals, Shane Stotsenberg on guitar and vocals, Cameron Gartung on drums and Ignacio Gonzalez on organ and tambourine — isn’t straying far from what Ducatenzeiler calls “a blend of influence and sound that is unprecedented in contemporary music”.

“We’ve always been a pop-structured psych band and we’re continuing along those lines,” Ducatenzeiler says. “But we’re trying some new things out as well. We’ve elevated the songwriting” Indeed, the group is experimenting with more exotic instruments and is building a library of new songs to show off its invigorating style not only in the studio but at a series of big-ticket festivals including Burgerama, Beach Goth, Desert Daze and the Austin Psych Fest.

It’s a long way from how the band began. “We had no idea when we started that we’d come as far as we have,” Ducatenzeiler says. “But from the moment we released our demos, people have really responded.”

 
 

THE CREATION FACTORY

People don’t dance anymore to rock bands, but The Creation Factory is here to change that.

Channeling the sounds of 1960s psychedelic beats, the Los Angeles-based five-piece isn't just making music—"we're capturing the sort of sounds that people don’t hear anymore," says front man Shane Stots—it's creating an experience.

"We’re bringing sounds back from the grave, maybe better than they were before,” Stots, who’s also a member of Los Angeles rock group Mystic Braves, says-and he’s not kidding. The group uses authentic 1960s gear (and an era-appropriate look) to create blues-infected rock designed to get a crowd’s feet moving. It’s no wonder, then, that the band-which sold out its first show and has a full length debut album out this May on Lolipop Records will be heading to Europe in August to perform at the mod & 60’s underground weekender Euroyeye.

The Creation Factory was formed in 2014 when Stots and Iggy Gonzalez (drums) pieced together a style infused gang of psychedelic bandits, including band members Neil Soiland and Gabriel Pacheco on guitar and Glenn Brigman on keyboards.

While the musical appeal of The Creation Factory's hard to ignore, Stots insists the band's also out to show fans what they've been missing.  “I’m trying to revive music and expose it to a younger generation," he says. "I'm going backwards to go forward."

So, while the past is firmly on The Creation Factory’s side, it’s the future that truly belongs to the band.
