Genre: Progressive Groove RockCover: FREEShow: 4PMAges: 21+Tree TopsTree Tops has been a bit of a strange bird from it’s inception. Founding members Brandon Castro, Cory Smith, Jim Foust and Chris Burgess all brought very different influences to the table. Castro’s songwriting sorts through vaults of personal experiences and speculations, fueled by the likes of Brand New and Manchester Orchestra while Smith relies on everything from Umphrey’s McGee to Mogwai to Tame Impala to The White Stripes to craft ear-catching instrumentals. Burgess focuses on the song as a journey, leaning on progressive rock greats like Yes, Camel and Pink Floyd. On stage, Foust’s drums come in hard and heavy but lay back almost as quickly to create intense dynamic diversity and settle into a groove that no night owl can resist shaking their ass to. With the addition of Mike Bartlett, an accomplished jazz saxophonist and jack-of-all trades when it comes to composition, the Knoxville-based five piece has really turned the sound around and placed a renewed focus on musical intricacies. The lineup has seen a few changes over the years, including a brief stint with bass master Andrew Norman, the disappearance of Castro from the live show, and frequent special guest Mario Key, whose trombone playing doubles the energy of any crowd. The band finds a great deal of pride in their ability to craft meaningful songs, but is no stranger to the on-stage improvisation that one would also find in many of their influences. Tree Tops can satisfy the desires of the Lollapalooza-going, indie rock-loving music fan or the Wakarusa attendee looking for a 15 minute tune with plenty of guitar work and grooves that lend to a 3am dance session shared among friends.web: http://therealtreetops.com/vid: https://youtu.be/VG74opi6tDs

When it comes to women singers in the South right now, it would be hard to beat Beth McKee. She’s been running the Mississippi-New Orleans highway long enough to know all the right stops and starts, and where the musical mojo is buried. McKee also isn’t afraid to wade into the swamps to find the heart and soul of that sound—These are songs that matter, and show just how resilient a spirit Beth McKee has. There isn’t anyone else in her league at present, and she gives bright hope the South really will do it again. Beth will be joined by Colin Allured

Join us for a great evening of entertainment, food, and spirits.

Singer-songwriter Beth McKee offers fiery-sweet songs full of tenacity and promise, sung to a deep southern groove all her own, a composite of regional impulses from places she’s called home; Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, Florida and North Carolina.

The appeal of her honest vocals and roots-y piano style was evident on McKee’s previous solo albums, Next to Nowhere (2012) and I’m That Way, the 2010 tribute to New Orleans songwriting legend Bobby Charles. In her adopted hometown of Orlando, McKee used the albums to establish a solo career, after her 1990s success with New Orleans-based MCA Records act Evangeline.

“Bobby Charles mastered simplicity and universal truth in his songs; Beth was his favorite interpreter of the bared-soul truth his songs communicated,” says Jim Bateman, Charles’ longtime manager. “Everything she does taps into that universal thread that everyone understands without thinking.”

As her indie career burgeoned, McKee embraced the sense of community she enjoyed while living in New Orleans, establishing her legion of Swamp Sistas, 2,500 strong on Facebook. She leads the group in a rally against hunger by organizing a roving music festival called the “Swamp Sistas La La,” a re-vamp on the traditional Creole house party to benefit communal causes.

McKee also regularly hosts songwriter showcases in Orlando and Winston-Salem to support local talent and road test her new material.

Colin Allured is a singer songwriter with eclectic roots.  He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in classical guitar performance, and has won numerous awards in classical guitar and composition.  He has also studied deeply in the areas of West African string music and Indian Classical Music.  These unique influences are balanced with familiar styles of americana, soul, funk and rocknroll to make a listening experience with broad appeal.

On January 27, 1979, at a Moose Lodge in Redondo Beach, California, Black Flag took the stage for the first time. Whipping up as much meat energy as possible, they didn’t so much play songs as create rapid-fire, rhythmic drives.

Everything was short. Stripped-down. A wall of distortion, built on a relentless series of riffs. And vocalist Keith Morris ran around the stage like an escaped lunatic, eventually wrapping himself in one of the venue’s American flags like it was a straitjacket. It was hardcore punk-rock before anyone ever started calling it that. It was great. You could ask anyone who was there.

Although Black Flag’s line-up — Morris, bassist Chuck Dukowski, guitarist Greg Ginn, and drummer Robo — would splinter within a year, the band’s ever-shifting membership released a half-dozen LPs (including the now-classic Damaged, My War, and Slip It In), two live albums, two compilations (Everything Went Black and The First Four Years), and several EPs that incorporated heavy metal, free jazz, and break-beats into the mix before they finally imploded in 1986.

Along the way, Black Flag wrote dozens of enduring songs, ranging from the sarcastic (“TV Party” and the Morris co-write “Wasted”) to the anthemic (“Rise Above” and the Dukowski-authored “My War”) to “Gimme Gimme Gimme” and “Nervous Breakdown.”

Black Flag also headlined sold-out shows at L.A.’s Olympic Auditorium, the Hollywood Palladium, and the Santa Monica Civic, and saw an early live performance immortalized in the ground-breaking 1979 punk-rock documentary, The Decline Of Western Civilization.

Meanwhile, Dukowski served as co-owner and booking agent at the band’s own SST Records label, which became one of America’s most influential independent labels, issuing more than 100 records from such future stars as the Minutemen, Sonic Youth, Soundgarden, Hüsker Dü, Bad Brains, and the Meat Puppets, for openers. More importantly, Black Flag and SST’s acts hit the road, building a nationwide touring circuit for indie recording artists that continues to this day.

This D.I.Y. ethos, along with the band’s anti-rock-star attitude and refusal to follow any fashion dictates, would be their greatest legacy.

At least until Morris, Dukowski, drummer Bill Stevenson (who played in Black Flag from 1981 to 1985), and guitarist Stephen Egerton (who’s been a member of the Stevenson-founded Descendents and ALL since 1985) reunited for a surprise performance at L.A. promoter Goldenvoice’s 30th anniversary concert in December 2011.

Inspired by the crowd’s enthusiastic reaction, Morris (whose post-Black Flag career includes fronting the Circle Jerks and, most recently, hardcore revivalists OFF!), Dukowski (who, after exiting Black Flag in 1983, founded SWA, Würm, United Gang Members, October Faction, and, his current outfit, the Chuck Dukowski Sextet), Stevenson, and Egerton joined forces with Dez Cadena (who sang lead, then played guitar in Black Flag from 1980 to 1983, before fronting DC3 and joining the Misfits in 2001) decided to extend the legacy, working up a repertoire of 30 classic Black Flag songs with an eye toward future live performances.

Taking their cue from the black flag of anarchy, they’re calling themselves FLAG. Long may they wave.

Genre: Americana/JazzCover: FREEShow: 10PMAges: 21+J.J. Murphy Trio (of Dynamo)Merging classic Americana with contemporary jazz, the J.J. Murphy Trio is the unique culmination of its members’ respective backgrounds and styles. Playing mostly original music, the Trio is comprised of Murphy on guitar, Alec Newnam on bass, and Nate Felty on drums. As the group’s composer, Murphy channels Bill Frisell, Julian Lage, and Ry Cooder—his sound is a contemplative blend of folk, blues, and jazz. In Nashville, Murphy writes and records with a stable of talented vocalists, including singer/songwriter Abigail York, award-winning Americana artist Lockwood Barr, and jazz vocalist Sharon Cho, who joins the Trio during summer 2016. Accomplished percussionist Felty lends his global influence (he’s studied percussion in Cuba) to the Trio’s sound. At home in Nashville, he’s co-leader of the Nashville Salsa Collective, a Latin jazz band popular on the city’s live circuit. Newnam, a New Jersey native, tours with several acts including singer/songwriter Kelsey Waldon, Gypsy Hombres, and alt-country band Mama Dear.While not performing with the Trio, Murphy and Felty are members of Dynamo, the nationally touring, Nashville-based funk band that took home two Nashville Industry Music Awards (NIMA) in 2015 for Best Funk/Reggae/Fusion Band and Album of the Year. This summer, the musicians come together to create a sound that’s at once comfortably classic and refreshingly distinct. web: http://johnmurphymusic.com/vid: https://youtu.be/gvnC0qjgLPk

Joshua James “There is a mystic in the mountains high above the Great Salt Lake/ He’s dancin’ in the heaven far below his golden gates/ He’s lookin’ at our cars below/ And laughin’ at our rock & roll,” sings Joshua James on the first lines of “Mystic.”  The singer-songwriter is based in American Fork—where he co-owns Northplatte Records—and pens these songs from his personal spiritual epicenter, Willamette Mountain.  In From the Top of Willamette Mountain, James deals in the currency of mysticism, trading thoughts of life’s repressiveness and his misgivings about organized religion for a search for the holy, a personal quest for transcendence or something similar. He does it openly on this, his third album.

"It's like if Radiohead wrote the soundtrack to every Nickelodeon show" http://fashionbath.bandcamp.com/releases “Subduing the low end, Greensboro’s Echo Courts allow their psych-addled sound to swirl and sprawl. The guitars tangle, refracted through just the right amount of reverb, as bass lines cut through despite a thin tone. Echo Courts exist somehow as both a driving rock band and a bleary-eyed pop outfit.” – Jordan Lawrence, Indy Week“With fragile vocals and reverb-laden guitars, they wend a tangled path through gardens of pop pleasures.” – Jordan Green, Triad City Beat“…give it time and the underlying embrace of Ice Cream Social will make you realize that this is something much more polished and creative than what Echo Courts predecessors have achieved so far.” – Dan E. Brown, The Grey Estates http://echocourtsmusic.bandcamp.com/

The Arcs —featuring Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss and Nick Movshon—confirm new tour dates, with stops at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Los Angeles’ Henry Fonda Theatre, New Orleans’ House Of Blues, Portland’s Roseland Theater and Denver’s Ogden Theatre. See below for complete tour dates.

Additionally, The Arcs cover of Bobby Parker’s “Watch Your Step” premieres on NPR. Director Martin Scorsese suggested the band should cover the song for Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Vinyl. Listen to here: http://n.pr/1pauAaJ.

Yours, Dreamily, continues to receive critical praise. Rolling Stonenamed the record among their top ten albums of 2015, calling it a “turbulent R&B noir, spiked with psychedelic flourishes… Spectral hip-hop coated in crusty mellotron.” The single “Put A Flower In Your Pocket” also has received excellent reviews, Consequence Of Sound called it “rife with foggy, psychedelic vibes” and Vice’s Noisey says its “dirty, bluesy soulful music with a reverbed, modern twist.”
