Ticket Price:

The Band of Heathens is constantly
being compared to The Band because
of the musical finesse that
overlays the group’s timeless,
rootsy core. But TBoH has reached
so many fans so fast because of
the echoes of and subtle homage to
so many different artists at the
core of the Americana canon,
including Tom Petty, Tony Joe
White, the Grateful Dead, Leon
Russell, George Harrison, and
others. These guys are the real
deal!

An Evening with THE CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD

Ticket Price:

On April 29th, The Chris Robinson
Brotherhood returns from gathering
the ineffable with Phosphorescent
Harvest, their third long playing
album for Silver Arrow Records.
Having first unshackled the air
with Big Moon Ritual (June 1012)
and the Magic Door (September
2012), the band –Robinson (Lead
vocals, guitar), Neal Casal
(guitar, vocals), Adam Macdougall
(keys, vocals), George Sluppick
(drums), and Mark Dutton (bass,
vocals) -trucked the realms
relentlessly, including a 118-show
stretch that never failed to
illuminate blank nights to just
this side of clarity. Late 2013
saw the fruits of that labor
forever captured in the proverbial
amber by legendary tape priestess,
Betty Cantor-Jackson (Grateful
Dead), on the eight-sided limited-
edition vinyl release Betty’s S.F.
Blends Volume 1, which documented
a glorious five night run at San
Francisco’s famed Great American
Music Hall.

Momentarily content with dusting
the globe and turning the sun out
at its scattered dances, the
Brotherhood reconvened with
producer Thom Monahan (Vetiver,
Devendra Banhart, Papercuts) to
materialize a new set of sounds
unseen to lean on ceilings, a
music of the spheres not content
to just envelop rafters. The
writing partnership and dialogue
between Robinson and Casal has
never been as closely woven as it
is on Phosphorescent Harvest,
almost akin to the conversation
you hear murmuring out of the
mouths of the moon and the stars
as they glide the celestial track.
This isn’t a range they ride alone
though, and as strong as the
songwriting gets does too the rest
of the band’s willingness to seek
company in chaos’ warm embrace,
discovering that in familiar forms
there can glow a vastness.

Phosphorescent Harvest features
ten new songs that build on the
California group’s impressively
growing repertoire by combining
the direct and immediate
songwriting Robinson has long been
known for with an expansive sense
of space and texture that has
never been so fully realized until
now. In an age when so many put
their beliefs in trends, the
volumes have all collapsed and
rooms are filled with tiny rock
and dampened lamps, the Chris
Robinson Brotherhood rolls on to
sharpen the blur at your brow and
wind like smoke through your mind.

BROWNOUT presents BROWN SABBATH

Opening Act:

Show Time: 9:00 pm

Buy Tickets >>

Age:
18 +

Ticket Price:
$10 adv $12 day of show

Brown Sabbath is the alter ego of
Austin-based psych-funk collective
Brownout who delve deep into
reinterpreting the catalog of
metal godfathers, Black Sabbath.
The Brown Sabbath idea started out
like everything else we do, half
inside joke, half psychotic. It
was an overly ambitious attempt at
challenging ourselves as
musicians,” says Brownout
guitarist Adrian Quesada.
“Bridging the gap between our
music and Black Sabbath is not as
far of a stretch as it might seem
though. Sabbath was not only
heavy, but soulful and funky in
their own dark way. Half the band
grew up as metal heads too, so it
came naturally. The experience is
already beginning to influence our
next album of original music.”

An 8-piece outfit formed ten years
ago by members of Grammy Award-
winning Latin revival orchestra
Grupo Fantasma, Brownout has
evolved into a musical force all
its own. After garnering their
third Austin Music Award last
year, the band has continued to
produce music that is
unflinchingly progressive, while
evoking the classic influences of
artists such as WAR, Cymande and
Funkadelic. They’ve performed at
events including Bonnaroo, High
Sierra Music Festival, Pickathon,
FFFFest, Bear Creek Music
Festival, Utopia Festival and
Pachanga Fest, while regularly
touring the U.S. Brownout’s also
served as a highly in-demand
backing band for artists including
Prince, Daniel Johnston, GZA and
Bernie Worrell.

With its latest recording,
Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath,
they remain true to the darkness,
bombast and fuzz of Sabbath’s
sound, while re-imagining the
music with greasy Afro-Latin
horns, hypnotic percussion and
psyched-out, rare-groove improv.

Nahko and Medicine for the People

Opening Act:
TBA

Show Time: 8:30 pm

Age:
18 +

Ticket Price:
$15 adv $17 day of show

Oregon-native Nahko, born a mix of
Apache, Puerto Rican, and Filipino
cultures and adopted into an
American family, suffered an
identity crisis from an early age.
But the unifying power of music
entered his life as a healing
remedy, when he took up the piano
at age six. Armed with his
newfound talent, he set out to
bridge the cultural gaps dividing
his own psyche and began producing
a public, musical journal of his
journey toward personal,
spiritual, and communal healing.

From his hometown of Portland to
the shores of Hawaii or Bali,
wherever he has traveled, Nahko is
joined by a tribe of culturally
alienated truth seekers for whom
Nahko’s story resonates with their
own, and who find redemption in
his voice, guitar, flute, and
drum. Whether solo or with the
dynamic group of musical
troubadours known as “Medicine for
the People,” Nahko delivers a
soulful dose of curative
vibrations that moves audiences to
dance, laugh, and cry. His
‘spirited redemption music’ lays
bear the scars of cultural wounds,
environmental wrongs, and social
injustices. His lyrics bear the
burden of heavy messages, but the
load is lightened by agile
melodies and driving rhythms that
coerce all who bear witness into
spirited, purifying, movement. His
humor disarms, and his lyrical
stories open listeners to the
power of “Real Talk Music”—songs
that reveal an honesty and depth
so raw, it inspires an internal
revival that echoes out into the
world. Sometimes exuberant,
sometimes savage, but always
transformational, Nahko makes the
movement move.

MOON TAXI

Opening Act:
THE BRIGHT LIGHT SOCIAL HOUR

Show Time: 8:30 pm

Age:

Ticket Price:
$15

For the members of Moon Taxi,
their third album, Mountains
Beaches Cities, represents the
idea of exploration – searching
both the world and themselves for
new experiences. The Nashville
rock group, who had honed in on a
notably compelling aesthetic with
their previous album Cabaret,
focused on extending the sonic
landscape they’d created in
earlier recordings, but this time
around they amp up the speed and
turn up the volume – creating an
overall bigger sound. The album
was self-produced by Moon Taxi’s
own guitarist Spencer Thomson with
the help of keyboardist Wes Bailey
and was mixed by Vance Powell
(Jack White, The Dead Weather) and
mastered by Greg Calbi (Talking
Heads, Paul Simon, Fleet Foxes).
“One thing we didn’t want to do
was stray too far from what we did
before,” Wes says. “We really knew
that things for the band had
shifted in a good direction and we
were growing because of our last
record. We wanted to continue the
energy we created from that
record.” “Like Cabaret, this
project started with rough demos
that slowly evolved into a
statement from not just the
initial songwriter, but evolved
into a representation of what each
of us individually have
experienced in this band and how
we’ve grown over the years as
players,” Tyler adds. The band,
which was founded in 2006, toured
extensively in support of Cabaret,
appearing at Bonnaroo, Forecastle,
and Lollapalooza. Additionally,
they have opened for such artists
as Matisyahu, Dr. John, and Dirty
Heads, and ended 2012 selling out
multiple theaters on their own.
While on the road, the musicians
began to stockpile song ideas and
demos, inspired by the trials
and tribulations of traveling
around the country to play shows.
In early 2013, the band went into
the studio to begin recording
Mountains Beaches Cities with
these touring experiences in mind.
Much of the recording was done in
Spencer’s apartment with only a
few days of drum and bass riffs
laid down in Nashville’s Sony Tree
studio. Although Mountains Beaches
Cities feels like an extension of
Cabaret’s aesthetic, the new album
is explorative, and its lyrics
recount a new narrative for the
musicians. Each song on the album,
and even the album title,
generates its own story and
imagery, but all come back to that
idea of exploration and
searching. “Beaches,” a surging,
borderline experimental track
Spencer calls “risky and
ambitious” transports the listener
with its haunting, emotive melody
while jangling acoustic song
“Young Journey” encapsulates the
eye-opening
experience of travel. “Morocco,” a
propulsive, hooky track about a
place none of the musicians have
ever been, seeks adventure in the
idea of going abroad. The album as
a whole is grandiose and
invigorating, each track revealing
a new chapter in the LP’s overall
story. This record, in particular,
is important for Moon Taxi, who
has been known in the past for its
boisterous live appearances, but
with Mountains Beaches Cities, it
highlights the nearly perfected
balance between the recorded
material and how it translates to
a live stage. “We made a conscious
effort with the last record to
write meaningful songs and produce
them in an exciting way,” Trevor
says. “That is still the ultimate
goal. We strive to produce
something that will outlast us as
a band. I can see this record
reaching an even broader range of
people because the song themes are
universal. ”The sound of Moon Taxi
pulls from the many different
facets and interests of its
members. Trevor, who got his start
in music playing trumpet in
school, is driven by his love for
reading, cooking and yoga; while
Tyler, who spent his younger years
jamming on a drum kit with
friends, is driven by an immense
appreciation and knowledge of pop
culture. Spencer, who used to
record himself in his parents
garage, has transformed his
knowledge of film into producing
videos for Moon Taxi’s music. Wes,
meanwhile, developed his musical
process from classical composers
like Mozart and spends his time on
tour searching for golf courses
while Tommy spends his free time
going to concerts and carefully
following Nashville’s local music
scene. “I think the exploration
aspect of the album came from
trying to understand and explore
ourselves,” Tommy says.
“Personally and musically. As we
get older we tend to know
ourselves better, but there is
always more to understand. You try
new things, but continue some of
the
good habits you’ve learned. As we
explored our music, we learned
more about ourselves and matured
as a band. I think it’s a concept
that won’t stop at this record,
but will carry on to our live
shows and other records down the
road.”

Ticket Price:
$12 adv $15 day of show

The Cadillac Three, whose members
include native Nashvillians Jaren
Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby
Ray, have been friends and musical
co-conspirators since they were
kids. They’ve weathered their wild
teenage years and even wilder
tours, weathered major label
letdowns and major league
triumphs, conquered Music Row –
Johnston co-wrote Keith Urban’s #1
single “You Gonna Fly” – and
crashed on the couches of
strangers in far flung cities.
These boys have seen more ups and
downs than a Smoky Mountain tour
guide.
But in spite of all the trials and
tribulations – or perhaps because
of them – The Cadillac Three has
emerged with a sound all its own,
a sound that hovers between radio-
ready country anthems, hard-and-
heavy rock and traditional
Southern folk. You could call it
country fuzz, you could call it
hipster-billy, you could call it
any number of over-hyphenated,
adjective-strewn things but when
you boil it all down there’s only
one way to describe it: damn good
music, as pure and refreshing as a
country creek.
It’s a sound that works as well in
front of an amphitheater full of
ZZ Top fans or the Dierks Bentley
crowd as well as it does in the
dive bars and dark corners of the
underground music world. Though,
truth be told, The Cadillac
Three’s sound probably works best
blaring out of your car speakers
as you fly down the highway, wind
blowing through your hair on the
way to another wild Saturday
night.
Built around Mason’s thundering,
melodic percussion and the sinewy
intertwining of Johnston’s guitar
with Ray’s lap steel, songs like
“I’m Southern”, “Days of Gold” and
“Whiskey Soaked Redemption” on
their self-produced debut bristle
with energy and explode at a
moments notice. Tracks like “Down
to the River”, “Get Your Buzz On”
and “Back It Up” evoke the legends
of Southern Rock – your Molly
Hatchets, your Outlaws, your Ozark
Mountain Daredevils – but they
aren’t nostalgic, aren’t
fetishistic reconstructions of by-
gone eras. This is the new sound
of the New South, bigger and
badder than ever.
