Mar/8th/9pm/$5 The Monterreys Return with Special Guest the Goon Squad

Posted on Jan.19, 2013

Charlotte garage surf band The Monterreys break the mold. The Monterreys’ music may be based in surf rock, but the band breaks out of the garage with its infusion of Latin, sci-fi and lounge. The band might just be hitting its first anniversary in existence, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the skills to entertain. It’s hard to listen to the music and not picture a great Spaghetti Western playing in the background. – Jeff Hahne (Creative Loafing)

Here is a link to the Facebook event

Hailing from Charlotte, N.C., The Monterreys serve up instrumental bliss sure to appeal to fans of early 1960s surf-rock and vintage spy-movie soundtracks. Twangy guitars meld with a percussive backbeat, creating a fun-filled and highly danceable sound that conjures up images of a bygone era when Dick Dale and James Bond were part of contemporary mainstream culture. – Dan Armonaitis (GoUpstate.com)


Apr/26th/8pm, Hen Party featuring Karen Mills and Leann Morgan, $15 Gen

Posted on Jan.17, 2013

Hen Party

Click here for videos

Karen Mills is a breath of fresh air. Her humor is smart, funny, and original. No one can help you “get your laugh on” better than she can. She’s been compared to such greats as Bill Cosby, Ellen Degeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld. Her comedy is clean, clever and relatable – she finds the funny in everyday life. A native of Tennessee, this southern girl makes one thing clear, “I am NOT a southern belle, unless I need to be.”

Leanne is married to an “conservative republican” with three children. Her comedy focuses on her children who are always first priority. Being a mother of three young children in rural Appalachia did not allow for many traveling dates in her early career. Her first public attempt at standup comedy was to emcee at a local variety show for a men’s civic club. This two-night stand led to many appearances in local East Tennessee coffee houses and scores of regional corporate events.

Formed in 2010, Seven Handle Circus is a six-piece Georgia band that has been critically acclaimed as “bad-ass bluegrass” with the “drive and energy of a rock band.” During their legendary live performances they push the limits of human endurance to send each crowd into a dancing and partying frenzy. Elements of rock, punk and alternative infuse their shows and they have even rocked crowds with rappers such as T-Pain & Yung Joc.

On their debut EP, Whiskey Stills & Sleeping Pills, Seven Handle Circus draws from their love of traditional bluegrass and folk and distills these influences into a modern sound that is all their own. With themes ranging from the fun of drinking to the complexities of life, Seven Handle Circus shares the beauty of the music they love, along with plenty of new surprises.

The band is already following in the footsteps of some wildly successful alternative acts that use elements of bluegrass to create a modern style of music. Whiskey Stills & Sleeping Pills was recorded in Asheville, NC at Echo Mountain studio, whose clients include cutting-edge artists like the Avett Brothers. Last May, the band headlined Chattanooga, Tennessee’s acclaimed Nightfall Concert Series, where Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Nickel Creek played before breaking wide open. Last year, Mumford & Sons invited the band to play at The Fox Theater in Atlanta after the platinum-selling Englishmen just happened upon an acoustic set 7HC was playing at the bar next door to the historic theater. “Gotta love those downtown establishments keeping original music out there.”
