Tray Dahl & The Jugtime Ragband at The Vista Room Atlanta
Sunday, November 11th at 7:00pm
Purists Beware! Tray Dahl & The Jugtime Ragband is not jug band, ragtime, or dixieland. It is an energetic amalgamation of all the popular styles of the 1920’s/30’s – jazz, a little blues, a bit of swing, a pinch old time gospel, and even classic showtunes – all immersed in an early 20th century New Orleans sound. Main influences include Louis Prima, Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong and the Boswell Sisters, with original songs that take listeners back in time through the experiences of our main characters whose tales, so far, have taken place anywhere from the 1860’s to 1930’s.
Sparta w/ Twin Criminal at The Earl
Tuesday, November 13th at 7:30pm
When At the Drive-In announced a hiatus in March 2001, co-founder Jim Ward (vocals/guitar) immediately started working with bandmates Paul Hinojos (guitar) and Tony Hajjar (drums) under the Sparta moniker. El Paso native and Belknap bassist Matt Miller joined the band several months later. Within a year, the punk-inspired four-piece had a deal with Dreamworks, and in March 2002, released the Austere EP. Five months later, Sparta issued the full-length, Wiretap Scars. The band returned two years later with the ambitious Porcelain, and North American tours followed into 2005. In May of that year, the band announced the departure of founding member Paul Hinojos, and before year’s end, ex-Engine Down/Denali guitarist Keeley Davis was added to the lineup. A deal with Hollywood followed in early 2006, resulting in the album Threes that same year.
