Free on Fridays Wine Tasting this Friday featuring some elegant and refined Northern Italian Wines. Friday, December 2nd from 4-7pm. Northern Italy is home to some of the country's most prized wines, and we are huge fans. From the legendary reds of the Piemonte region to the world class whites of Friuli, Northern Italian wines are some of the best produced in all of Italy. Join us as we'll pour you some of our favorites this Friday. We'll start with our new Case of the Month, an incredible Sauvignon Blanc value from Friuli. After that, you'll try Piemonte red blend from the famed Vajra Barolo house followed by an elegant Barbera from one of the Piemonte's oldest and most respected producers. Stop by, taste, learn and save this Friday at Table Wine. Can't make it by, but want to place an order? Just email us at [email protected] The Wines Save big on all of the tasting wines! Mix any 3 of them and save 10%, mix any 6 and save 15%, or mix any 12 and save 20%! 1. 2015 Bidoli Sauvignon Blanc (Friuli, Italy) – This is our new Case of the Month as well as one of the best Sauvignon Blanc finds of all time. From the gravelly, rocky soils of Friuli Grave, this fuller styled, intense Sauvignon Blanc is packed with aromas and flavors of pear, lime, passion fruit, fresh green herbs and mineral. Tasting Price: $11.69 on mixed 3-packs | $11.04 in mixed six packs | $10.39 in mixed cases Special Case of the Month Price: $9.99/bottle on your solid case -- over 20% off! 2. 2013 G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso (Piemonte, Italy) - G.D. Vajra is one of the Piemonte's top names in Barolo, and their blended red wine is always one of the great values of the region. A crisp, medium bodied blend of Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Pinot Nero, Freisa and Albarossa, it is a true taste of the Piemonte. From younger vines, it is fresh and fruit forward, but not at all simple. Tasting Price: $14.39 on mixed 3-packs | $13.59 on mixed 6-packs | $12.79 on mixed cases 3. 2013 Cordero di Montezemolo Barbera d'Alba (Piemonte, Italy) - This old and historic estate can trace its roots back to 1340! Like G.D. Vajra, this is one of the most respected Barolo producers of the region, and their Barbera is a ton of wine for the money. Rich and juicy, it shows notes of blackberry, dark plum, dark cherry, violet and just a kiss of oak. Tasting Price: $21.59 on mixed 3-packs | $20.39 on mixed 6-packs | $19.19 on mixed cases

Billy Strings and Don Julin - 'Little Maggie' ::: Second Story Garage Billy Strings - Brown's Ferry Blues Billy Strings - "Black Mountain Rag" | Fretboard Journal Billy Strings "Meet Me At The Creek" Billy Strings (2016 IBMA Momentum Award Instumentalist of the Year) tears up the stage with super-charged Americana. This kid can pick! It’s acoustic music with a punk edge and a lot of youthful enthusiasm. Billy covers a wide variety of classic songs, from a slow-burning cover of ‘Wild Bill Jones’ to a raw cover of ‘Cocaine Blues’ or picking delights like ‘Red Haired Boy’ and ‘Soldier’s Joy.’ His standout track, ‘Dust in a Baggie,’ is a cleverly written, tour-de-force mountain song, written by Strings himself, and upon listening, it’s the moment you realize just how far this kid’s gonna go. – Courtesy of The Bluegrass Situation

Description:

This album is definitely about growth.So says Smo, whose growth as a force in American music cannot be denied. Having topped 50 million views on YouTube, sold more than 450,000 tracks and dominated both the country and rap charts, the charismatic Tennessee-bred artist, outdoorsman and family man draws fans from across all social boundaries.How does he do it? He speaks truth. He lays down epic rhymes that challenge listeners to party when they can, to champion the values on which they were (or should have been) raised, to look straight into the eyes of life, to laugh and love and even get angry every once in a while if that helps make things right.These many sides of Smo are represented proudly on his latest album. Yes, We The People is about growth, in creative horizons as well as in a worldview nurtured by time and trial. But its also about the growth it inspires among his ever-expanding audience, who see their own stories mirrored in his.I see things today in a clearer way than I ever have, as a father, as a son, as an American, Smo insists. Its about that growth for me as an individual and hoping I can influence my listeners to grow with me.From working dawn to dusk on his family farm to riding border to border on his bus, from meeting and entertaining his fans, aka Kinfoke, from fusing elements of raw country and hip-hop in a makeshift studio to the private moments he shares via his Smo On The Go video posts on Facebook, Smo incorporates all that has come his way into a unique and personal sound.A new and especially difficult turn impacted Smos approach to music and life in general. Last year Smo underwent quadruple bypass surgery, an experience that cant help but change those who survive.When youre facing death and youre given a second chance with life, you find that you value that life much more, he reflects. Ive been guilty in the past of taking the simple things for granted. Today I stand here, clear-minded, with my eyes set on my target.Smo addresses this in his manifesto, a creed laying the foundation for the album. It pulses throughout We The People, in the empowering proclamation of the title track, the determination to succeed that drives Say My Name, the spice and sass that conjures P-Funk on a backwoods parade with Struttin In The Stix, an irresistible call to rock the house from sunup to last call on RetoxAnd then there are bases Smo has never touched until now, including a gentle love lyric framed by string quintet on Thing For You and his first duet with a female singer: Josie Dunne as the girl waiting for her traveling love on Never Get Old.Getting the opportunity to work with Josie was a blessing for me, Smo says. In fact, its a blessing for me to work with all of the singers on this album rather than the other way around. When Casey Beathard and I cut the demo for We The People and he sang the chorus, his voice was just so majestic that I knew that no one else could fill that position. My longtime friend and backup singer Haden Carpenter has just the right amount of funk and country for Struttin In The Stix. We had Michael Ray on Rollin, a phenomenal artist and a dear friend. William Michael Morgan is amazing. Theres so much old country in this young mans voice. You dont find that a lot nowadays. Plus Corey Crowder, Todd Nielson, Hookman, Brandon Rogers, Jimmy Burney Being able to work with each of these great talents wasnt really work at all.Smo gives much of the credit for bringing We The People home to his producer.Theres a reason why you havent heard a production like this on my past projects, he says. Its because of my good friend Jason Mater. Our creative process was like, as soon as I thought of an idea, he was already playing it. I wanted to test the boundaries and really dig into the multi-genre experience. As soon as my manager Dan Nelson and I heard what Jason was capable of, we knew he was the guy for the job.You can hear the fruits of their collaboration from the opening tracks mock-inaugural of Smo as our Commander in Chief to the uplifting closer, My Kind America. One clear example is Movin On Up, an affirmation of hard work and harvest it yields, built on a handclap gospel beat that keeps peaking to the edge of explosion and then backing off.Why this groove tease? Smo smiles and explains, We talked about how every day we work to achieve the top goal we set. Then as soon as we achieve that goal, we set another one. And when we reach it, we set another one. We never really reach the top because once we get to what we think is the top, we set standards for our next level.So, he concludes, we dont have to get to some exploding point because were never gonna feel like we can stop and quit working. For us, that point doesnt exist.Which takes us back to that idea about growing, about how Smo sees himself and the world that motivates him to work and perform and connect and lift it all just a bit higher tomorrow. If We The People is about setting down his beliefs and what hes learned, then the last track is about wrapping it all up and offering it to his kinfoke.My Kind America is at the end for a good reason, he says. I began with We The People to get listeners thinking about this album. Its about finding the things that make us who we are as Americans. Its about loving. Its a reminder that, hey, even though were going through hard times and people are feeling a certain way about other people, were fortunate to wake up every day in this country where you can stand up for your belief. You dont have to sit on the sidelines and do nothing. Dont put all of your energy into complaining about how things are. Get up and do something about it.Make this Your Kind America.

Andy Shauf is a storyteller, a singer of heartbreak and regrets, isolation and loneliness, reflecting his prairie surroundings in Regina, Canada. Meticulously written over four years, Shauf's The Bearer of Bad News is a warm and welcoming album, bathed in weathered piano, dampened drums, softly-strummed guitars and clarinet, which lends its unique timbre to frequently brighten or hauntingly underscore the songs' darker undercurrents. Fans of Elliott Smith, Nick Drake and Harry Nilsson, take note.

After hearing Deep River sing one of their own compositions, 'Remember Always', live on the Bell Buckle (Tennessee) Jamboree Radio Show, the late Charlie Louvin of the Country Music HOF duo, The Louvin Brothers, said, "I'd like to hear y'all play that song on the Grand Ole Opry." While they haven’t yet played the Opry, Deep River has sung with Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, as well as opened for country star Mark Wills and the 'First Lady of Bluegrass', Wilma Lee Cooper.

Fruit Bats started in the mid 1990's as the four-track project of Eric D. Johnson (of The Shins, Califone & Vetiver) The name "Fruit Bats" was actually one of many cryptic monikers scrawled on the cassettes. Somehow that one stuck. Some of the other band names included "Holiday Inn," and "Senseless Tripe." For a number of years there were many warbling, feedback laden tapes, but no shows and no band.In early 2000, Johnson joined the cast of characters that made up Califone and the whole Perishable Records family. It was this kinship with a bunch of like minded folks that coaxed the Fruit Bats from out of the bedroom and turned the shy lo-fi project into a real band.Brian Deck produced the first record, Echolocation, which featured hi-fi versions of many of the old four-track tunes. The album sold poorly, but garnered rave reviews in places like Mojo and The Village Voice, the latter calling it "a mini-masterpiece of zoology rock." Shows were offered, and a band was hastily put together. The lineup would remain ever shifting after that, always revolving around Johnson and a rotating cast of characters.Fruit Bats would sign with Sub Pop records in 2002 and release 4 successful records with the venerable Seattle imprint. They then toured the world, played on the TV and had a generally great time. Besides the aforementioned "zoology rock," the two best obscure genres the Fruit Bats have been linked to by the press are "bootgazer," and "rustic pop." So there you go.They'll be touring with My Morning Jacket in fall 2015, and will release their sixth full-length in early 2016.

Dylan LeBlanc's sophomore album Cast The Same Old Shadow will be released on August 21st by Rough Trade Records. Born in Shreveport, Dylan moved to Muscle Shoals, Alabama when he was 11 and he is the dark horse of the vibrant and close-knit musical community there that includes Alabama Shakes, Secret Sisters, and Civil Wars to name a few.The songs on the new album are fraught with recollections of love, loss and regret. He was admittedly an emotional wreck when he wrote them, but emotions of that sort often lead to the most heartfelt music around. Since his debut album Paupers Field, Dylan has grown as a singer and a songwriter and a guitar player. He's experienced a lot of life already, and while he's still trying to figure it all out, he's ready to share the melancholy emotions he loves so much.

Slim Cessna's Auto Club

LinksIn September 2016, Slim Cessna's Auto Club is releasing its new album The Commandments According to SCAC. It has been twenty-four years since Slim Cessna parted ways with The Denver Gentlemen, that grand progenitor of the peculiar strain of Gothic Americana unique to the Mile High City, to form Slim Cessna's Auto Club with a group of talented peers.

Many bands with a long and successful run like that would stick close to its roots. But rather than rest on well-earned laurels, the Auto Club challenged itself to break with well-worn modes of operating for the new record.

Wallace Stenger may have captured the spirit of the west in his 1971 novel Angle of Repose. Jim Thompson surely exposed the lurid underbelly of the Western experience. Cormac McCarthy definitely evoked the conflicted, tortured spirit of small town life on the frontier. William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor informed all of them with a humor and soulfulness. It is that literary tradition that imbues the harrowing and celebratory sound and riveting stories of Slim Cessna's Auto Club. And for a full twenty years it was largely in that realm of art that the Auto Club reveled and garnered a loyal cult following well beyond the boundaries of The Queen City of the Plains.

But no band can be satisfied with treading the same territory that it helped to define forever. The
Commandments According to SCAC, will be the first full length album of original material released on the Auto Club's own imprint, SCACUNINCORPORATED.

The title evokes the themes of cosmic punishment and redemption that have served the band's songwriting engine so well in the past. But this set of songs sounds more hopeful and expansive, a quality that was always there but this time out the brighter sides of the songwriting are emphasized. Hints of this saw early full-flown expression on 2008's Cipher and Unentitled from 2011.

With The Commandments, however, the Auto Club seems to step forward into the promise of its own
possibilities. It remains capable of the heady darkness and celebratory intensity with which it made its name.

Now that charmingly dusky and spare sound breathes with a color and delicacy of feeling that perhaps sat in the background in times past. Maybe it's partly due to the greater creative contributions from longtime collaborator Rebecca Vera and The Peeler or the inclusion of upright bass player Ian O'Dougherty. But the core of the band's songwriting and sound is anchored firmly in the vision of Slim, Munly Munly and Lord Dwight Pentacost.

Whatever the true source of this transformation, The Commandments According to SCAC sounds like a band marshaling its creative inspiration to mark out a new chapter of its existence. When you get to see the Auto Club tour following the album's release, you'll get to see an already mighty band reinvigorated by this new spirit as well as by the fire that has long burned in its collective belly.

Psymbionic and CloZee head out on a massive U.S tour! Catch one of the premier stops at New Mountain Asheville December 8th!  Cut Rugs and illanthropy bring their unique sound as local support!  Psymbionic:  Cresting the modern wave of electronic producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that explore the range of multi-tempo Bass Music within an influential and dynamic culture. With an ear for situational relevance, Psymbionic enjoys turning non-traditional sound design and infectious rhythms into dancefloor heat, while also maintaining his history in the downtempo, emotive side of the electronic sound. John Burcham has been moving bodies and turning heads as Psymbionic for several years in all corners of the USA, playing with acts such as Bassnectar, STS9, Big Gigantic, ill.Gates, Excision, EOTO, and Tipper. His passion and innovation in the music world are showcased through album releases on Muti Music and MalLabel, as well as in his role as label manager for the popular Electronic imprint Gravitas Recordings. In a live show context, Psymbionic confronts mixes that are limited to the scope of the build and release, avoiding an industry epidemic of drop-monotony that overpowers the flow of music. Burcham seeks to prove that there are more powerful influences in moving a crowd than simple tension, providing an interwoven dynamic that relies on the strength of his blend, rather than the sole force or familiarity of the apex. Psymbionic's theory of music is a journey that doesn't visit the same place twice, building excitement for what's next not because you can anticipate it, but because you've never been there before. CloZee: Hailing from Toulouse, CloZee is Chloé, a young music producer who seamlessly combines technical precision with a wild imagination. An accomplished instrumentalist, she began playing the classical guitar at 11. Influenced by edIT, Bonobo, The Widdler and Amon Tobin, she started producing electronic music at the age of 16.Winner of the 2014 'Best International Newcomer' at the UK Glitch-Hop Award, and runner up of multiple remix contests, she was spotted by respected labels such as Gravitas Recordings, Glitch Hop Community, Otodayo Records, Adapted Records, Digital Whomp…In 2015, she launched the electro Orchestral Hip Hop project CloZinger, with a french MPC master Scarfinger.

"Took a whole lot of miles to know what I know now," sings Will Hoge on "Growing Up Around Here," the opening track off of his tenth studio album, Small Town Dreams. "I'm kinda proud of growing up around here."It's been a whole lot of miles, indeed: miles on the road, driving the bus himself from venue to venue since the nineties; miles to and from Nashville writing rooms, where he's spent hours penning songs some for him, some for others; miles exploring lands outside of his native Franklin, Tennessee, chasing the spirits of his musical heroes. Roads meet, roads split, roads led to home.Hoge has spent countless years and miles on the road, but hes just recently recorded the magic fans love, on Solo & Live December 2015 released in March 2016. Known for his connection with audiences as well as his impressive vocal ability, he recorded the album in December of last year. The collection captures the full experience of Hoges show an event thats never predictable. Hoges unique connection with his fans lies in his ability to stir up somber, acoustic moments in one turn and then spring a hard-rocking, plugged-in number the next. "The magic happens in the unsafe moments," he says. The album showcases songs from Small Town Dreams as well as older entries from his catalog, including crowd favorites Through Missing You, Jesus Came to Tennessee and When I get My Wings, among others.An extremely prolific songwriter with ten albums under his belt and countless songs written for others (including a Grammy nomination), Never fitting particularly neatly into a genre box, he's always just made the music that moved him.Keeping with the recurring theme of days and nights spent on the road, Hoge recently crossed the pond and took his live show to Europe, touring through Scotland and England in the fall of 2015 and again in early 2016, traveling to Spain, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands. The tour was in support of Small Town Dreams, which Hoge teamed up with Marshall Altman on. The collection of songs paints a vivid snapshot of the American experience.Throughout everything he does, whether in his live shows or while creating a new album one thing remains central: the stories. Hoges ability to tell stories is part of what has made him a vital force in fan's lives who have followed him across the country and seen countless shows his songs speak to the reality of all our experiences, delivered in a way that is honest, true and ever changing.Whatever the tale may be, both old and new fans alike know one thing for certain Hoges next release will be a chapter filled with an intriguing story. Stay tuned.

Description:

Luke Bells backstory couldve come out of the pages of a novel by Jim Harrison, Thomas McGuane or Cormac McCarthy. A fifth-generation descendant of Wyoming homesteaders, theranch hand turned troubadour has seen a lot of life in his 26 years on this mortal coil, and his selftitled album, released under the auspices of Bill Hill Records, distributed by Thirty Tigers, serves as a rollicking document of his experiences. The record is teeming with colorful characters, captured in hardscrabble yarns of living hard and drinking harder, making bad choices and laughing them off.Theres a little bit of their author in each of these flawed but redeemable charactersand at a time when authenticity is in short supply, Luke Bell has come along to remind us what it feels like to be truly alive and open to the possibilities of existence in a captivating song cycle that puts the cowboy back into country & western. A life-embracing, go-for-the-gusto spirit animates Bells vividly drawn characters, but an aching melancholy lurks just below the surface. Describing the deeply soulful, deeply American character ofBells music in an introductory piece posted on Daytrotter, Sean Moeller insightfully wrote, Theres the lonesomeness thats a birthright for all of the wandering souls. Theres the heartbreak that comes from that. And then theres the laughing off of that heartbreak in that way that makes it evident that the heartbreaks not being laughed off at alleven as the singer cocks his hat to the side, smiles and throws back another whiskey with a generous thank you.Bell came of age with dirt collecting under his fingernails and music working its way into his head. He remembers the summers he spent working on his grandparents ranch, starting at the age of 13, as lots of hot days, Randy Travis tapes and old pick-up trucks with broken door handlesthe words sounding like a line from one of his songs. When I was out there workin for my grandparents the summer after I graduated from high school, it kinda took hold, Bell recalls about his deepening interest in music. I grew up with country radio, of course, Randy Travis, Toby Keith and all that stuff. But I didnt become influenced by classic country until I found a record player and Merle Haggards Live From Muscogee in my grandparents basement, and took em to this little house I was livin in. I thought that record was really cool; Id listen to it all the time after work. Then I found some other stuff, like Waylon. And my grandfather was always a huge fan of Hank Snow and Ian Tyson, cowboy music and poetry, so I grew up around a lot of that stuff by default.Eventually, songs of his own began to take shapesongs rooted in those old records, working the soil and knocking em back, taking life as it comes in Big Sky Country.He spent a couple of years studying agroecology at the University of Wyoming by day and playing music in front of crowds of folkies at the Buckhorn Bar by night. When the music started crowding out the classwork, he headed to the bright lights of Austin. My life was kinda like a scene from Urban Cowboy at that point, Bell recalls. I was workin construction, sellin pizza coupons, shoein horseswhatever work I could find to pay the minimum bills of the apartment I was livin in. Other than that, I was just screwin around and playin shows; I had a rock n roll band for a while. Monday nights at the Hole in the Wall was a residency with Ramsey Midwood, Mike and the Moonpies and Leo Rondeau. I was enamored of that honky-tonk scene; they had dollar-fifty High Lifesthat didnt hurt, either. While in Austin, Bell cut his first album, titling it Saving Country Musica key formative experience, though few outside of his circle were aware of its existence. Then New Orleans beckoned, and off he went for a six months of further mind expansionpaying particular attention to the performing styles of the citys adept street musiciansbefore his pilgrimage led him to Nashville, where he now resides. As Bell was accumulating life experience and serving his apprenticeship in these musicalhotbeds, he kept returning to Wyoming to work on the ranch, keeping himself grounded in the most literal sense of the term.Nashville was the right place at the right time for Bell, who continued to write and perform, cutting his second album, Dont Mind If I Do, in 2014 at the Bomb Shelter, which has become his go-to studio. Rolling Stone noticed, stating that Bell plays classic honky-tonk with a wink and a yodel that summons the sleeping ghosts of country better than any voodoo spell ever could. Bells shows are welcome excuses to click your boots and down an extra sniff of bourbon. And songs like Sometimes are such uncanny time warps they almost make his sets appear in Technicolor.Sometimes is one of several tunes from that record that embodies the dynamic of the album and of Bells music in general, intertwining lifes highs and lows with poetic concision.That song is about when I lived in Austin and I wasnt really sure that I wanted to, he explains. I was sad to leave it, but I also wanted to go out and keep lookin around. Its also about breaking up with someone before youre sure if youre ready to, and what happens to you when youre young and you really care about somebody, but youre not done exploring, and dealing with those feelings. When you make a change in your life, and youre thinking about everything youre going to miss afterwards. Theres your town in the rearview mirror, and youre kinda torn as youre exploring a new life somewhere else between what you left behind and whats in front of you. Youre thinkin, Well, Im kinda havin a good time, but then Im also going home lonely and wondering what the hell Im doin. You know, that sort of juxtaposition.The Bullfighter, another linchpin song, gets inside the head of a familiar characterthe drunken male, Bell says with a laugh.Its a boasting song about pretending youre the toughest person at the bar lookin for a fight, drunk, and playacting that character over and over again. You see it all the timesomebody thats swaggering a big swagger, but theyre really just sad. I know, because Ive been that guy.These examples just scratch the surface of this high-revving album, with its dead-honest narratives filled with photographically detailed figures and situations. This album emphatically puts Luke Bell in the vanguard of traditionally rooted contemporary writer/artists. Well be able to ride shotgun with him on his further adventures behind the wheel of his beloved 95 Buick LeSabre, because no matter where he goes from here, theres no doubt hell keep telling it like it is.

It is the third installment in a spiritual trilogy of albums including Heavy Days (2009) and We Are The Champions" (2011).

About a 20-minute drive is all that separated The Secret Sisters from being born in historic Muscle Shoals, Alabama, though its sheer proximity to their hometown of Happy Valley practically foretold that Laura and Lydia Rogers were destined for lives as recording and performing artists. Growing up surrounded by the sounds of the South and the powerful timeless music emanating from Muscle Shoals, The Secret Sisters were heavily influenced by a range of uniquely American musical styles, including country, bluegrass and gospel, as well as classic rock and pop. They were raised on a rich tapestry of music, listening to everything from George Jones and Loretta Lynn, to The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, The Ramones, Fiona Apple and Rufus Wainwright. Their debut album was soon lauded by critics and adored by their rapidly growing legion of fans. The stage was set for the sisters to advance as artists and further establish themselves as songwriters, which they proved to do on their sophomore album, Put Your Needle Down, an eclectic mix of musical styles and sounds rooted in storytelling. Luckily the duo had a powerhouse producer, T Bone Burnett, to help them on their first two albums. We became friends with T Bone early on in our career and he was a wonderful guide, said Lydia. The Secret Sisters are always careful about how they want their music to sound. I think that recording live is the best way that you can record an album because it really captures a bands ability to glue themselves to one another and create something beautiful. She adds, There is something beautiful and honest about not being perfect. For their third studio album, the Secret Sisters worked with long-time friend, mentor, and hero Brandi Carlile. With Brandi as well as Phil and Tim Hanseroth at the helm, the sisters have spent the majority of 2016 recording in Seattle. It is expected to release in early 2017. There is still an aura of mystery that surrounds The Secret Sisters, and they certainly like to keep their fans wondering where theyll head next on their musical journey. But with Laura and Lydia, one thing is for certain: integrity and honesty will guide every note.

The Piedmont Boys started out in Greenville, SC in 2007. They've played thousands of shows, logged thousands of miles, released 4 albums, toured half the continental U.S., shared stages with everyone from Eric Church to Charlie Robison..hell, they've even played rodeos from Oregon to Texas. But wherever they go, the refrain of the fans who come up to them remains the same: "I never liked country music until I heard y'all."What these folks must be talking about is the watered-down pop-country stuff you hear on the radio nowadays, because if you don't like REAL countryMerle, Willie, Waylon, Johnnyyou won't like the Piedmont Boys.If you don't like against-the-grain, outlaw brand, whiskey-soaked, blue-collar honky-tonk music, the kind where the volume and the energy are dead ringers for rock & roll but the sound is gritty hard-country, you won't like the Piedmont Boys.If you don't like a live show that's pedal-to-the-floorboard, rock the place down to the dirt and drain every drop of sweat from every human being in the house, you won't like the Piedmont Boys.If you don't like your Jerry Reed mixed with a little Metallica, if you don't like a band that loves playing live so much that they've had one weekend off in seven years, if you don't like country mixed with bluegrass mixed with southern rock mixed with a littlemake that a lotof Jack Daniels, you won't like the Piedmont Boys.If any of that sounds like one hell of a good time, though, y'all come on in. The door's always open.

Have you seen Holy Ghost Tent Revival since they moved to Asheville, North Carolina? How about since their van broke down in the Canadian Rockies, leaving them trekking through a snowstorm across the border back into the States? Did you hear how their lead singer Stephen cut off part of his index finger? He's gotten pretty good at the trumpet lately and, having this bigger and better horn section (as well as background vocals reminiscent of the Motown Era,) seems to have really filled out their new soulful sound. Holy Ghost Tent Revival's exhilarating live show has uplifted audiences since the band formed in 2007. For the past eight years, they have been honing their unique sound, which NPR describes as that of a "soul-rock horn band that recalls 60s and 70s classic-rock influences such as The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers, contemporary indie-rock acts like Dr. Dog, and New Orleans brass-band jazz." Conceived in Philadelphia under the creative wing of Bill Moriarty (Man Man, The Sheepdogs,) their third full-length studio album, Right State Of Mind, sees the band putting earlier conventions aside in exploration of more soul-rock leanings. The album dances nimbly between genres while touching on themes of alienation, moving on after death, the joy of staying up all night in the city, the interconnected nature and beauty of life, and longing for a home that is no more. The band has turned what many hail as a deeply personal and evocative group of recordings into a thrilling live performance, the merits of which have led them to share stages with the likes of Dr. Dog, Shovels and Rope, Langhorne Slim & The Law, Pokey LaFarge, Robert Randolph & the Family Band and Lake Street Dive. Holy Ghost Tent Revival's magnetism will continue to grow and mature in the hearts of listeners across the country, from radio dial to lit pavilion.
