Expect an amazingly curated evening of incredible music and delicacies!

Saturday, August 16th

An Evening Under the Stars @ Wolf Creek Amphitheater

Join us at Wolf Creek for an evening under the stars with El Debarge, Guy, Dru Hill, & After 7, and host MC Lightfoot.

Tickets start at $35 in advance. Doors open at 5pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm.




Eliot Bronson and Adron @ Eddie’s Attic 

Eliot Bronson is the type of songwriter who could squeeze out something meaningful about taking out the trash. He writes heartfelt songs with dark humor and backs them with his resonant voice and swampy instruments. Back in his hometown of Baltimore, he was dubbed a folk-singing wunderkind.

Tickets are $12 in advance, $16 at the door. Doors open at 6pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm day of show.




Wildcat! Wildcat! w/ Marley Carroll @ The EARL

Wildcat! Wildcat! is now set to release their self-titled debut EP September 10 on Downtown Records. The band garnered critical praise for their previously released sold-out limited addition 7” on the taste-making label Neon Gold Records, including early support from BBC Radio 1, Time, and NYLON. The band has toured extensively including SXSW, a sold out west coast headlining run, and major U.S. support slots with Alt-J and Portugal. The Man.

Tickets are $10. Doors open at 9pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm day of show.




Packway Handle Band @ Eddie’s Attic 

The five members of Packway have wowed audiences for over a decade with near perfect 4-part harmonies and seemingly boundless on-stage synergy. Over the years the band has evolved as a premier gather-around-the-mic act. Their performance is focused around a tight cluster of microphones surrounded by an arsenal of acoustic and electric instruments: banjo, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar, upright and electric bass, and an ever-changing array of percussive accessories, sometimes called “The Rattletrap.”

Tickets are $14 in advance, $18 at the door. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm day of show.




Sunday, August 17th

Desert Rose Band @ Eddie’s Attic

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Member Chris Hillman and The Desert Rose Band will perform an acoustic set in a rare appearance. Joining Chris Hillman in this acoustic appearance are John Jorgenson on guitar/mandolin, Herb Pedersen on guitar and Bill Bryson on bass.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $36 at the door. Doors open at 5pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm day of show.




Scale The Summit w/ Glass Cloud // Erra @ Vinyl

Generally speaking, progressive rock bands aren’t known for their efficiency — but SCALE THE SUMMIT, who are preparing to release their fourth album in six years, have never exactly played by the rules. First, consider their chosen genre of music, which is perpetually unfashionable by mainstream standards. Then consider that, in the true spirit of prog, they decided to take things one step further — which in their case meant forging ahead without a vocalist. One can only imagine the shaking heads of friends, family members and faculty at Hollywood’s Musicians Institute.

Tickets are $13.50 in advance, $15 day of show. Doors open at 6pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm day of show.
