*** VIP tickets include: 6PM Meet & Greet, Lanyard, VIP Koozie, and Signed CD ***   Sunny Sweeney is the party and the morning after. She’s the quip that makes you laugh and the truth that makes you cry, the devil that’s egging you on and the angel whispering that you aren’t alone. But those compelling contradictions aren’t what’s most interesting about Sweeney: it’s the depth and brazen authenticity she brings to all her roles that grabs you and won’t let go. “I’ve grown up doing the bar scenes, and you have to have drinking and partying songs there-–you have to,” Sweeney says. “Now, my songs are still about the same things, but I feel like they’re more mature versions.” Sweeney’s salty wisdom and Texas-hewn soprano have never sounded stronger than they do on Trophy, her anticipated new album. Trophy is a breakthrough––the album we all suspected she was capable of making. The wit and honesty that have always defined her stone-cold...

The Coal Men and The Truehearts Double Bill

Mar 23, 2018 |  0 comments

The Coal Men are a three-piece unit led by Coleman, who knows his way around a Telecaster. He’s played sideman for a host of artists from Matthew Ryan to Taylor Swift — on the road and in the studio. When he’s not doing that or producing and engineering other artists in his home studio, Coleman returns to The Coal Men like a runner touching home plate. Drummer Dave Ray has been Coleman’s primary musical partner for all of the band’s 16 years. Paul Slivka joined on bass five years ago. Few bands stay together. This one has survived long enough to be tossed about by a volatile music business. They’ve experienced the reality of life on the road vs. the youthful dreams of it. And they’ve come out the other side with some wisdom to share. You could say the The Coal Men are right on schedule, taking on this subject matter. They’ve toured with or opened shows for the likes of Todd Snider, The Avett Brothers, Southern Culture on the Skids, and Tony Furtado. They’ve played...

The Hurts & Wes Charlton

Mar 16, 2018 |  0 comments

The Hurts formed from a previously undiscovered species of dinosaur egg now so-called Hurtsasaurus. Miraculously preserved, the Hurts, comprising of Will Thompson (percussion), Mara Smith (vox, guitar, keys, bass), Jill Palumbo (vox, bass, guitar) and Rebekah Holbrook (vox, key, harmonica, guitar), hatched after an incubation of two years and carefully sporadic practice. Despite their Jurassic origins, The Hurts bring you a dose of very serious irreverence that is meant purely for creative release. A mix of songwriting styles inform the sounds, ranging from future western murder ballads to sensitive introspective songs leaning on a 90s indies slant with delicious three part vocal harmonies.   Wes Charlton, a singer/songwriter from Virginia, integrates his Americana roots with modern themes to create a poetic and at times haunting vision of relationships, the struggle to find yourself, and the pursuit of the “Promised Land”.  Opening for artists like Tim Easton, Stephen...
