Damn Quails Tickets: $10 | Doors: 7 PM

The Damn Quails started as a weekly jam session in Norman, Oklahoma. Looking back, the fact that the band began so organically, could be considered somewhat of a miracle. At the epicenter of these weekly jams were Bryon White and Gabe Marshall. Some of the musicians became more and more regular and the semblance of a band was formed. A guy known only as Biggie showed up with his harmonica. Luke Mullenix played the bass and Thomas Young became the resident drummer. In addition to this a multi-instrumentalist named Jon Knudson came with a variety of instruments including, keyboard, resonator guitar, saxophone, and mandolin to name a few. Their first record “Down The Hatch” was released in 2011 and received rave reviews from across the country. Combining the sounds of folk music, country, Americana and rock ‘n’ roll, the band has developed an extremely loyal and well listened following. The Damn Quails’ new album, Out of The Birdcage, will be released on the day of the show, Friday, September 4th. Purchase your tickets in advance and receive a free copy of their new CD, Out of the Birdcage, on the night of the show!

Tickets: $10 | Doors: 8 PM

Purchase your tickets in advance and receive a free copy of his new EP, Bottom of the Fifth, at the show! Available at the merch table! Already a chart-topping country star on the Texas circuit, Curtis Grimes swings for the fences – and embraces a bigger, broader audience – with his new EP, Bottom of the Fifth. Curtis sticks to his small town roots, taking you through the heart of country music for the 21st century. An impressive career as a collegiate and all-state baseball pitcher took him all around the state, and his growing success as a musician – including a stint on the first season of The Voice, where he competed on Cee Lo Green’s team – gave him the opportunity to expand his reach. He hasn’t forgotten his past – and with a catalog that include Number One singles like “Cowboy Kind” and “Our Side of the Fence,” both of which climbed to the top of the Texas country charts. With one boot planted in traditional country and the other pointing toward something new and progressive, Curtis is turning Bottom of the Fifth into his biggest release to date. Game on.

Thirteen years can put a hell of a lot of wear and tear on even the hardiest of rock ’n’ roll bands. But don’t be fooled by all those hundreds of thousands of miles on Micky & the Motorcars’ odometer: pop the hood of Hearts From Above, the long-running Austin band’s seventh album, and you’ll find a brand-new engine, fine-tuned and good to run for at least as many more miles still ahead. And behind the wheel? Two brothers — Micky and Gary Braun — who by their own admission haven’t been this fired up about playing together since they first rode south from the Whitecloud Mountains of Idaho to stake their claim to the Texas and wider Americana music scenes.

*This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.* RY COODER is a virtuoso roots guitarist who is steeped in the blues but has spent much of his career exploring new musical worlds from Tex-Mex to Cuban bolero. He has won 6 GRAMMY awards, most recently for Best Traditional Latin Album and Best Pop Instrumental Album. In 1997, Ry Cooder traveled to Cuba to produce and play with a group of son musicians. The resulting album, Buena Vista Social Club, was an international success and earned Cooder another GRAMMY. SHARON WHITE is a member of beloved country-gospel family band, The Whites, and has been making music alongside her father and sister for more than four decades. Originally a bluegrass group, the family trio became well known for their string of Country hits in the 1980s, including “Hangin’ Around,” “Give Me Back That Old Familiar Feeling,” and “Pins and Needles,” and have since gone on to win multiple awards, including GRAMMY, CMA and Dove Awards. RICKY SKAGGS is truly a pioneer of Bluegrass and Country music with 12 #1 hit singles, 14 GRAMMY Awards, eleven IBMA Awards, nine ACM Awards and eight CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year).

Pat Green is simultaneously a Grammy-nominated hit maker with an outsider reputation, a Texas inspiration and a mainstream country artist who can rock arena and stadium stages with the likes of Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney. After building a reputation as an ace songwriter of his own material, Green released Songs We Wish Weʼd Written II, a sequel to a 2001 album he recorded with longtime friend, and fellow Texan, Cory Morrow. Stocked with music penned by the likes of Lyle Lovett, Tom Petty, Shelby Lynne and Jon Randall, the disc mixes country, rock and blues in a manner that defies categorization. “Galilee,” “Soulshine,” “Jesus On A Greyhound” and the imagery in “Austin” combine to form a spiritual undercurrent on the album akin to the message of Greenʻs biggest hit, “Wave On Wave.” In September 2014, Pat Green released his newest single, “Girls of Texas”, featuring Lyle Lovett.

*This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor.

He went on to win Grammy Awards for his triple-platinum 1989 collaboration with Linda Ronstadt Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, and reached the Country charts with the title track of 1993’s The Grand Tour. A member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, his recent project was the gospel album I Know I’ve Been Changed in 2010. With Neville’s latest release, MY TRUE STORY, one of the world’s finest singers is revisiting the music he grew up with, and adding a few new spins along the way. It is a collection of twelve classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style. Twenty-three songs were cut in five days, all of them live and many in the first take.” MY TRUE STORY represents a culmination of Aaron Neville’s incredible career, which has seen him move seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music, the Neville Brothers.

English Oceans, the 12th release by Athens, Georgia’s Drive-By Truckers, is an elegantly balanced and deeply engaged new effort that finds the group refreshed and firing on all cylinders. All but one of the collection’s 13 new songs, written by singer-guitarists and co-founding members Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, were recorded during 13 days of sessions in August 2013 with longtime producer David Barbe. The album was recorded with a compact, retooled lineup. Jay Gonzalez, who joined the band in 2008 as keyboardist, stepped into an expanded role by adding guitar to his duties, while bassist Matt Patton was drafted from the Tuscaloosa group The Dexateens. Looking at the accomplishments of English Oceans from the perspective of DBT’s nearly three-decade history, both Cooley and Hood decline to hedge their bets on the quality of their latest work.

Fans that have followed Scaggs’ remarkable career dating back to the late ‘60s with the Steve Miller Band and his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976), Middle Man (1980), Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001), will instantly recognize Scaggs’ characteristically deft touch as a singer. “I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Boz Scaggs says about his spellbinding new album, A Fool to Care. “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.” You can hear that sense of fun, as well as that ability and willingness to wander in any musical direction throughout the album’s twelve tracks. Two guests, in particular, make definitive contributions to A Fool to Care. Bonnie Raitt duets sassily with Scaggs on vocals, and adds her characteristically sizzling slide guitar to “Hell to Pay,” a knowing indictment of corruption on both the personal and political level that Scaggs wrote himself. Finally, Lucinda Williams closes out the album with Scaggs on “Whispering Pines.” Scaggs believes that this album and Memphis, its immediate predecessor, might turn out to be the first two parts of a trilogy, a three-album collaboration with producer Steve Jordan and the band of extraordinarily empathetic musicians they love to work with.

Toadies (Somebody’s Darling opens)
Tickets: $29.50| Doors: 7 PM

*This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.* The Texas band is, at its core, just a raw, commanding rock band. Its 1994 debut, Rubberneck, was an intense, swirling vortex of guitar rock built around Lewis’s strangely distinct songs and abstract lyrics – like the smash single “Possum Kingdom,” which rocketed the album to platinum status on the strength of that and two other singles, “Tyler” and “Away.” Perhaps in keeping with the uneasy vibe, that success didn’t translate to label support when the Toadies submitted their second album, Feeler. Eventually some of the Feeler tracks made it onto Hell Below/Stars Above – a sophomore offering that came seven years after Rubberneck. When the Toadies split up, guitarist Clark Vogeler went to work as a film editor, drummer Mark Reznicek hooked up with the country-western band Eleven Hundred Springs and Lewis went on to form the Burden Brothers in 2002 with Reverend Horton Heat drummer, Taz Bentley. In August 2007, the Burden Brothers went on hiatus, Lewis began writing and the Toadies officially reconvened, signing with Kirtland and recording No Deliverance. Their latest release, Heretics, is due out September 18th and features new songs and classic Toadies tracks deconstructed, re-arranged and re-imagined with acoustic guitar, mandolin, electric piano, bass and drums.

Todd Snider Tickets: $22 | Doors: 7 PM

This very special solo performance is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve. Singer/songwriter Todd Snider first garnered attention for his timely alt-rock satire “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues”. In the mid-80s, Snider was discovered by a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band and was then signed to the Buffett’s Margaritaville Records. Snider’s debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet, was released in 1994 and on his second effort, 1996’s Step Right Up, Snider and his band continued blending bluegrass, blues, folk-rock and country-rock to forge their own distinctive sound. On his third album, 1998’s Viva Satellite, Snider took a Tom Petty approach, replacing much of his acoustic setup with twang-drenched electric guitar. In 2000, he returned to his singer/songwriter roots with Happy to Be Here followed by New Connection, Near Truths and Hotel Rooms Live, and East Nashville Skyline. In March 2012, Todd Snider released the album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables which debuted in the Top 20 of four separate Billboard charts. In April 2012, Todd Snider released Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker, a tribute to his original musical hero.

On the 2014 release, Revelation, the band collaborated with an eclectic cast of co-writers including alt-country icon Radney Foster, in-demand pop tunesmiths Matthew Gerrard and David Quiñones, Black-Eyed Peas collaborators George Pajon Jr. and Keith Harris, and Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli.

TICKETS: $22 | DOORS: 8 PM

Tickets on sale September 15 at 1 pm. Austin’s own Reckless Kelly is currently touring behind their eighth studio album, “Long Night Moon.” When Willy Braun, frontman and principal songwriter for the band began writing songs for Long Night Moon, he quickly found a theme emerging. “About halfway through writing this record, I noticed that almost all of the songs I was writing, whether they were songs about the road, life, or love, had something to do with traveling. It started as an accident and I decided to just go with it. Before we knew it, there was a definite theme.” It’s honest, original and constantly evolving. The group is known for their explosive live shows and a passion for making albums of substance. Long Night Moon is no exception to this rule.

JD McPherson (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $20 | DOOR: 7 PM

You could mistake JD McPherson for a revivalist, given how few other contemporary artists are likely to assert, as he boldly does, that “’Keep a Knockin’ by Little Richard is the best record ever made. It’s so insanely visceral, you feel like it’s going to explode your speakers. If I’m listening to that in the car, I find myself having to brake suddenly. I can listen to that and it makes me feel like I’m 20 feet tall. And the feeling of joy I get from that record is always going to be the real push behind trying to make music.” But in a very real sense, McPherson is much more a pioneer than roots resuscitator. He’s knocking at the door of something that arguably hasn’t yet been accomplished – a spirited, almost spiritual hybrid that brings the forgotten lessons from the earliest days of rock & roll into a future that has room for the modernities of studio technique and 21st century singer/songwriter idiosyncrasies that Richard Penniman would not recognize. Let the Good Times Roll, his second album, is a stranger, and more personal affair than its Fats Domino-redolent title might at first suggest, but the name isn’t exactly ironic, either. If you, too, brake for pleasure, you’ll screech to a halt at the enrapturing sound of these Good Times. His first album, 2012’s Signs & Signifiers, was hailed as “an utterly irresistible, slicked-back triumph” by Mojo and “a rockin’, bluesy, forward-thinking gold mine that subtly breaks the conventions of most vintage rock projects” by All Music Guide.

Hayes Carll (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Tickets on sale October 13 at 1 pm. Hayes Carll is an odd mix. Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music, he is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and smallminded thinking. Carll connects with music lovers across genres lines. Playing rock clubs and honkytonks, Bonnaroo, Stones Fest, SXSW and NXNE, he and his band merge a truculent singer/songwriter take that combines Ray Wylie Hubband’s lean freewheeling squalor with Todd Snider’s brazen Gen Y reality and a healthy dose of love amongst unhealthy people. After releasing Flowers & Liquor in 2002, Carll was voted the Best New Artist of 2002 by The Houston Post. He would go on to release Little Rock on his own Highway 87 label, which became the first self-owned project to the top the Americana charts. Each album expands on his already extreme vintage country, extreme thumping bad road boogie, extreme heartbroken ache – and finds new ways to take on the fate of the nation. Whether it’s the GI protagonist in the propulsive title track of KMAG YOYO, the train wreck objet d’amour of “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” also recorded by Hubbard, the road warrior of both “I Got A Gig” and “Little Rock” or the stoner liberal and the uptight Republican vixen of “Another Like You,” Carll paints vivid pictures of humanity as it really is. Thickheaded. Avaricious. Squalid. Hungry. Angry. Getting by.

WilliamClarkGreen2015 (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 8 PM

Tickets on sale October 13 at 1 pm. William Clark Green is not one for pulling punches. Where some songwriters trade in subtlety and dancing around blunt truths with clever feints and metaphor, Clark aims his words straight to the point and, when needed, right through the heart. His music is unrelentingly direct and hard-hitting, too, charged with a palpable rock ’n’ roll immediacy that’s as evident in his most intimate solo acoustic performances as it is in the full-tilt band shows that have packed rooms across his native Lone Star State. And with the April 21st release of Ringling Road, his eagerly awaited fourth album, Green is set to make his biggest impact on the booming Texas/Red Dirt music scene – and beyond – yet.

Tickets on sale October 13 at 1 pm. This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.
Jerry Jeff has lived – and is living again – the troubadour’s life. Most folks know that story – how Jerry Jeff moved to Austin in the early ’70s and reinvented himself as a Lone Star country-rocker. He became, along with Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel, one of the arbiters of the internationally famous Austin musical community. Since then, he has celebrated the music of peers such as Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and served as a fountainhead and inspiration to younger musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider and a moderately successful country tunesmith named Garth Brooks.
