Jan/17/8:00/$5 The Mark Dawson Group, John Henry’s Hammer and Sean Cronin & The Boogie Children

Posted on Sep.25, 2013

The Mark Dawson Group is a Spartanburg-based band that puts its own stamp on the blues, reinvigorating a genre that can sometimes come across as stale. The psychedelic-tinged group is celebrating the release of a new EP,” The Nashville Dogs,” which was produced by Greg Archilla, an industry veteran who has worked with such renowned artists as Matchbox Twenty, Buckcherry and Edwin McCain. spartanburg herald journal

 

John Henry’s Hammer formed at the beginning of 2011 when a few old friends found some new ones and decided to make some honky tonk music. With influences of traditional country and a little of their own sound, somewhere between Cash and Reckless Kelly, they had only the purpose of recording a country record which would release later that summer. After realizing, “Hey we’re pretty good”, they decided to keep on a truckin. So here it is 2013 and with a couple of shows under their belt and a couple changes in the line up, John Henry’s Hammer is still trying to keep the country alive and stop the murder and desecration that’s happening in Trashville. The line up currently consist of Willie Lipsey: Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Jeff Kelly: Bass, Al Mitchell: Drums, and Michael “Hoss” Lowe, Jr: Lead Guitar. Keep ‘Er Between The Ditches!

 

Sean Cronin and the boogie children. Genres:     Blues / Rock n Roll / Jam Band. Sean Cronin an his boogie children bring seasoned blues, smoking riffs plus a rhythm section that puts it all in the right places. If you want to get your blues fix then Sean Cronin and his Boogie Children can really bring it to you. Don’t miss this if you are a blues aficionado … http://www.reverbnation.com/seancronin

Dec/21/8pm Holiday-vaganza A Musical Evening in Three Acts

Posted on Sep.20, 2013

 A Musical Evening in Three Acts: an exclusive combination of bands – from indie folk rock via modern cello music all the way to americana honey pop. From Asheville, Chapel Hill and Atlanta, you will get a full range of eclectic music during your evening out.

The Wilhelm Brothers – Indie Folk Rock with Melodic Cello.

There was chemistry and musical sparks flying when The Wilhelm Brothers Chris Wilhelm (guitar/lead vocals) and Cristof Ensslin (cello/vocal harmonies/tamburin) hit off their first note together at a recording session for Trail Of The Lonesome Pine in early 2012. Since then, they have been sharing the same dream: to play for crowds of 10,000 and more. All their energy is focused on this vision, playing over 200 shows per year. Highlights on their journey so far are recording their debut EP Lay Your Burden Down with Lenny Kravitz-producer Henry Hirsch, opening for acts such as Pearl And The Beard (as trio Wilhelm McKay) as well as David LaMotte, and receiving radio airplay including getting their own Pandora Radio channel.  Link: www.thewilhelmbrothers.com

A Mad Affair: Formed around a campfire in the spring of 2011. Inspired by nature, the Chapel Hill trio play as if they never left the birdsong & trees. The radiant voice of Valerie Wood cascades over the nuanced cadences of Garth Robertson’s vibrant guitar and the deep, resonant groove of double bassist, Eric Smith. Candy-coated harmonies and the happy bounce of a ukulele often dance throughout a song.
A Mad Affair released their debut album, Retro Honey Pop, in December 2012. The album was recorded at Warrior Sound in Chapel Hill, NC, by Al Jacob and mastered by Brent Lambert (Nnenna Freelon, Avett Brothers). Fiddlin’ Faye Petree also makes guest appearances on “Old Country Road” and “Sun and Moon.” Lively, heart-felt, fun and friendly, th
eir 13-track album will transport you into a warm landscape of starlit summer picnics and honeysuckle-scented breezes.

10/9/8pm/$5 Indie Film, “Present” A PaperCookie Production

Posted on Aug.18, 2013

Daniel Crane (Nesey Gallons) is a semi-famous performance artist traveling and touring around the country, entertaining small enthralled audiences in the living rooms of houses with his awkward and sometimes alienating acts. On Halloween weekend, he finds himself with a few days off in Asheville, NC, staying with his kid sister, Dorothy (Faith Callaway) who works as a waitress at an old mom and pop Diner.

When a couple leaves a book at the Diner, Dorothy and Daniel decide to revisit the small town where they grew up. Along with Dorothy’s roommate Cassie (Mariana Templin), they set out on a trip to Mount Airy, NC, discovering the things they once remembered are vanishing, and realizing things they’ve kept inside themselves since childhood never go away.
