Charley Crockett 2018 (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 7 PM

Growing up with a single mother in San Benito, Texas, the hometown of Tejano star Freddy Fender was not easy for blues singer Charley Crockett. Hitchhiking across the country exposed Crockett to the street life at a young age, following in the footsteps of his relative, American folk hero Davy Crockett, who also lived a wild life on the American frontier. After train hopping across the country, singing on the streets for change in New Orleans’ French Quarter, busking in New York City and performing across Texas and Northern California, Crockett set off to travel the world and lived on the streets of Paris for nearly a year before searching for home in Spain, Morocco, and Northern Africa. The blues artist returned home to Texas and released his debut solo album titled A Stolen Jewel in 2015, receiving critical acclaim in Dallas and ultimately landing him a Dallas Observer Music Award that year for “Best Blues Act”. He released his sophomore record In The Night, an admirable nod to his Texas country and Louisiana blues roots, in 2016. In 2017, he found time to get back to Austin, Texas to record a collection of his favorite honky tonk songs called Charley Crockett presents Lil G.L.’s Honky Tonk Jubilee which was his first release under his new label deal with Thirty Tigers (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson).

Pat Green Tickets: $37.50 | Doors: 5 PM

*This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.* After rising through Texas’ college-town and dancehall scene years ago, Pat Green earned himself major-label support in Nashville and became the poster child of Texas music for a whole generation of fans. His list of achievements includes over 2 million albums sold, three Grammy nominations and a sold out Houston Astrodome. But after releasing six albums in eight years, sending singles like “Wave on Wave” and “Let Me” up the charts, touring with powerhouses like Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban and dealing with accusations of “selling out,” the meat grinder of mainstream stardom proved to be too much. He was spent. Now, after breaking the cycle for a three-year recharge, Green is back in his comfort zone and playing by his own rules again. His is new independent album Home is his first set of originals in several years, and directly speaks to the hardcore fans that have been with him since the beginning. The album’s first single, “Girls From Texas,” is a prime example, and also features the first of Home’s stellar guest appearances. A sugary, grown-up lullaby that explains why Texan girls are just a little bit better than the rest, the track spent 10 weeks on top of the Texas Music chart. Green calls recording the song face-to-face with Lyle Lovett a highlight of the whole project.

The Wood Brothers (Amy Helm opens)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 7 PM

From early in their childhood in Boulder, CO, Chris and Oliver were steeped in American roots music. Oliver played guitar in cover bands before earning a spot in Tinsley Ellis’s touring act. At Ellis’s behest, Oliver began to sing and then founded King Johnson, a hard-touring group that would release six albums of blues-inflected R&B, funk and country. Chris, meanwhile, studied jazz bass at the New England Conservatory of Music, moved to New York City and formed Medeski Martin & Wood in the early ‘90s, which over the next two decades would become a cornerstone of contemporary jazz and abstract music. After pursuing separate musical careers for some 15 years, the brothers performed together at a show in North Carolina. Oliver sat in with MM&W following King Johnson’s opening set. Soon after, the pair recorded a batch of Oliver’s songs, channeling the shared musical heroes of their youth while seizing on their own individual strengths – Oliver’s classic songwriting, Chris’s forward-thinking musicianship. The Wood Brothers’ latest album, ‘Paradise’, was release in October 2015.

This annual family-friendly tradition puts concertgoers of all ages in the holiday spirit with a warm celebration. The only place where number one hits like George Strait’s Wrapped are played alongside classics like Santa Baby, this Texas country staple is now a syndicated television show! “Until our most recent albums, we had tried our best to keep our careers separate. The holiday shows started out as our one cheat, our few shows we’d perform together each year, and it turned into this beautiful annual celebration of coming together around the holidays.” – Bruce Robison

Todd Snider (Adam Carroll opens)
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 and after establishing residency at a local club in Memphis, Snider was discovered by singer/songwriter Keith Sykes, a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band. After Sykes passed on demo tapes of Snider to Buffett, he was signed to the star’s Margaritaville Records. Snider’s debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet was released in the fall of 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 signed to John Prine’s Oh Boy label and 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. The New York Times hailed it as “among his best” and Rolling Stone called it “the sharpest musical response yet to the excesses of the one percent.” In April 2012, Todd Snider released Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker, a tribute to his original musical hero.

Tyler Childers (Town Mountain opens)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 7 PM

Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks and legendary moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, Kentucky, populate the 10 songs in his formidable debut, Purgatory, an album that’s simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. The album, co-produced by Grammy Award winners Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, is a semiautobiographical sketch of Childers’ growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable. Purgatory is a chiaroscuro painting with darkness framing light in high relief. There’s catharsis and redemption. Sin and temptation. Murder and deceit. Demons and angels. Moonshine and cocaine. So much moonshine and cocaine. All played out on the large, colorful canvas of Eastern Kentucky. Childers had been searching for a certain sound for his debut album for years as he honed his craft, and was finding it elusive when his friend, drummer Miles Miller, introduced him to Simpson, the Grammy Award-winning musician and fellow Kentuckian. Childers sent Simpson a group of his songs, then went to visit him in Nashville. “And he said, ‘There’s this sound. I know what you’re trying to get at, the mountain sound,'” Childers recalled. “‘So I asked, ‘What are you doing?'” Intrigued, Simpson enlisted the aid of Ferguson, the Grammy Award winning sound engineer. They assembled a band that included multi-instrumentalists Stuart Duncan, Michael J. Henderson and Russ Pahl, bassist Michael Bub and Miller on drums, of course, and helped Childers make a debut album of consequence that announces an authentic new voice.

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.

Texas tornado Casey Donahew kicked off perhaps his biggest year yet in October 2011 with the release of his fourth studio album, Double Wide Dream. Selling out venues across the country, the Casey Donahew Band continues to thrill crowds each week with a combined frenetic onstage energy and everyman likeability, and media outlets around the country are starting to catch on to what the fans have known all along – this guy knows how to rock it. A testament to Casey Donahew’s growing popularity, the song “Double Wide Dream” is a perfect example of the Burleson native’s ability not to take himself or anything else too seriously and just enjoy the ride – and what a whirlwind of a ride it is becoming for this Texas sensation as he skyrockets closer and closer to country superstardom!

Texas country singer-songwriter Kevin Fowler took a couple of years to take stock of his artistic career, launch his own record label, then write and record How Country Are Ya? the old-fashioned way. The album’s first single, “How Country Are Ya?,” is quintessential Fowler. The song crackles with all the beer joint energy that characterizes every creative fiber in Kevin Fowler’s body. The point behind each lyric, each guitar lick, and each twanging-rocking melody is the live show. Fowler has earned his reputation as one of the most amped-up concert performers to emerge from the modern day Texas country movement. For those that have experienced Fowler onstage, then you know he brings unbridled musical muscle to the platform. Backed by his trusty band he’s a dynamo – cracking jokes, hitting high notes, strumming his guitar and putting each of his fans in two-stepping mode.

Roger Creager is an adventurist; he does not like to sit still while the world passes by. He tries to get the most out of what the world has to offer, and all it finds its way into Roger’s music and live shows. His passion for life invigorates everyone around him, including his fan base. Those who get hooked on his charisma and high energy come back show after show, year after year, and record after record. Creager’s latest record, Surrender, released January 2012, marks a “back-to-basics” approach for Roger. As always, Roger creates an interesting collection with songs that are very different from each other and will keep the listener’s attention start to finish. He co-wrote all songs except “Redemption Song”, a Bob Marley classic. Creager may travel the world, but he never strays far from his small-town South Texas roots and his music encompasses all of him.

Stoney LaRue’s newest album project, Aviator, his debut for eOne Entertainment. Don’t be fooled…LaRue has lit up and burned down a honky-tonk a time or two, becoming a Red Dirt/Texas Music circuit mainstay known for high-energy shows, and that intensity is found on AVIATOR as well, on tracks like “It’s Too Soon”, “Golden Shackles” and an album ending “Studio A JAM” not to be missed. But its tunes like “First One To Know,” the opener “One And Only” and the vivid, memory-filled title track that give AVIATOR it’s thread, trying to find a path amidst loss and life changes, redemption and reinvention.

The Bottle Rockets (Ryan Culwell opens)
Tickets: $12 Doors: 7 PM

The Bottle Rockets will release their new album Bit Logic on October 12th, 2018. The band was unceremoniously birthed in 1992 and they very quickly became a forebearer for the new style alongside Uncle Tupelo, the Jayhawks, Old 97’s, Blue Mountain and Whiskeytown. When The Bottle Rockets hit the scene in the mid ’90s, the world wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. With their punk-rock pedigrees and arena-rock energy, their tougher-than-Springsteen storytelling and their romantic hearts sewn bare on their denim sleeves, the pride of Festus, MO confounded musical generalities as they laid waste to clubs across the Midwest and then, soon enough, the nation. Back in a time when the critical language and resulting idioms for mixing underground rock with country was in its infancy, The Bottle Rockets were fearlessly – and quite loudly – playing rootsy weepers alongside howling rave ups, with singer/guitarist Brian Henneman leading the charge as some sort of Roger Miller of the indie set. The band, and their sound and their message, goes beyond a time or a place or a fad. The Bottle Rockets are true folk music, albeit it with beards, biker wallets and a lot more muscle.

I'm With Her (Delle Sorelle opens)
Tickets: $30 | Doors: 8 PM

I’m With Her is Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan. Four years after their formation at an impromptu show in 2014 at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, CO, the band released their debut album, See You Around (Rounder Records), in February 2018. Co-produced by Ethan Johns and recorded in Bath, England, See You Around has garnered praise from NPR, who instantly hailed the collection as “willfully open-hearted” and The Guardian calling their sound both “ethereal and purposeful.” From their early contributions in bands such as Nickel Creek and Crooked Still, these three musicians are noteworthy for their recent and extensive solo career successes, including several Grammy awards. I’m With Her have honed a special, family-like chemistry, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, as the New York Times describes of a live performance, “…when the three women sang together, their voices became one instrument, sharing every breath.” Touring in support of the new album, the band have sold out shows across the US and Europe and have also made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CBS Saturday Morning and NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. The trio was recently nominated for Duo/Group of the year by the Americana Music Association.

Trampled By Turtles (Ghost of Paul Revere opens)
Tickets: $30 | Doors: 7 PM

Trampled by Turtles released their first record, Songs from a Ghost Town, in 2004. In a genre steeped in tradition, the album stood out for its contemporary sound, essentially bridging the gap between the bandmates’ background in rock music and their new acoustic leanings. Blue Sky and the Devil (2005) and Trouble (2007) explored a similar sound, but it wasn’t until 2008 and the band’s fourth release, Duluth, that Trampled by Turtles received recognition by the bluegrass community. Duluth peaked at number eight on the Billboard bluegrass chart and paved the way for a number of festival appearances. When Palomino arrived in 2010, it was met with an even greater response, debuting at the top of the bluegrass chart and remaining in the Top Ten for more than a year. Two years later, their crossover appeal landed them at number 32 on the Billboard 200 pop charts upon the release of their sixth album, Stars and Satellites. In addition to major bluegrass and folk festivals, they began showing up at Coachella, Bumbershoot, and Lollapalooza. In 2014, the band returned with the darker-toned Wild Animals, which bettered its studio predecessor on the album charts, reaching number 29. Trampled released their latest album Life Is Good On The Open Road on May 4th, 2018.

Kurt Vile (The Sadies open)
Tickets: $29.50 | Doors: 7 PM

Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying Bottle It In, which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years. If Vile has become something of a rock guitar god – a mantle he would dismiss out of humility but also out of a desire to keep getting better, to continue absorbing new music, new sounds, new ideas – it’s due to his precise, witty playing style, which turns every riff and rhythm into points on a map and takes the scenic route from one to the next. In April 2017, he trekked out to Indio, California, to catch the Stagecoach Festival and sit in with his friends the Sadies (“my favorite modern band”). Inspired by Willie Nelson’s epic set, Vile spent a few days in Los Angeles working with producer Rob Schnapf, who he had previously worked with on “Pretty Pimpin,” the leadoff track on b’lieve that became a number-one AAA radio hit. Months later, when a lengthy Violators tour ended in Salt Lake City, Vile let the momentum carry him further west, where he recorded several more songs with engineer/producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, the War on Drugs) at The Beer Hole in Los Angeles. The bulk of Bottle It In was bottled up at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, Connecticut, with Peter Katis (Interpol, the National) engineering and producing. Bottle It In captures the spontaneity of these impromptu sessions, revealing Vile as a diligent and singularly determined musician.
