Willie Sugarcapps at Eddie’s Attic
At first it was simply songwriter-in-the-round and jam session-styled collaborations, but it quickly grew to become something more. There was chemistry between the five distinct musicians that inspired a repertoire of songs demanding to be documented. They recruited Capps’ longtime partner and Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker to record them, which resulted in the self-titled, debut album, Willie Sugarcapps. The collection presents ten impeccably crafted songs imbued by relaxed performances, angelic harmonies and country Zen sentiment.
The Soul Rebels at Vinyl

The Soul Rebels brought the party all over the world, three tours of Europe and a tour in Brazil, And the party’s just getting started.
Imelda May w/ The Bellfuries At The Loft,

Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun w/ Jungol at The EARL
Today The Moon, Tomorrow The Sun is all about the collaborative. It’s about the connections between sound and people, it’s about the heart and the head. It’s for mistakes and triumphs, and against arrogance and underconfidence. A band of four: two girls, two boys. Noisy, dancy, loud, sincere, sweaty, loveable, hardworking.
Bobby Yang at Eddie’s Attic
Melding his classical training with years of Colorado mountain woodshedding, Bobby Yang is reinventing the sound of the acoustic violin. His inimitable sound combines the virtuosity of the violin with the dirt of a bluegrass fiddle and the rawness of a guitar. He has surrounded himself with musicians who share his madness, his Unrivaled Players, while touring internationally.

Hannah Thomas, Jamie Lynn Vessels and Morgan Rowe at Eddie’s Attic
In the days of AM radio music only had one genre, today there are labels for all different kinds of music, but Hannah Thomas has never liked labels, or playing just one kind of music. Amy Ray (of the Indigo Girls) describes Hannah’s music best. (Hannah has) “the soul of old country, and that will always be there, but she’s also a diehard rocker with some punk thrown in the mix”. And Hannah has been playing that music for everyone who will listen. Having played over 200 shows in the past 18 months in more places than she can count, she also made time to record the 7 songs on her newest studio CD, “Goodbye on Wasted Time”.

His obsession with moving forward and experimentation has driven him to create “solid and refreshing tunes”, and in the words of Jon himself “that’s all that really matters”.

Whiskey Shivers with Special Guests, Berkshire Hounds at Eddie’s Attic
Hatched in the twilight months of ought nine, these five young men came from all corners of the US looking to do one thing: knock the dust off roots music. A freewheelin’, trashgrassin’, folk tornado, the Whiskey Shivers take traditional instrumentation, soak it in gasoline and send it into outer space. With upright bass, fiddle, washboard, banjo, guitar, and reasonably priced merchandise, Whiskey Shivers adds a fine layer of grit on top of the hard-driving rhythms of traditional bluegrass. They’ve been called everything from “trashgrass” to “hardcore roots” to “crazy-assed redneck music” — whatever the words, the meaning is the same: Whiskey Shivers brings the house down.
General admission tickets are $8 in advance, $12 at the door. Table seats are $10 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5:00 pm on the day of the show.
