Band of Heathens (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 7 PM

Duende, the title of The Band of Heathens’ fifth studio album (and eighth overall), marks their tenth anniversary as a group, and it certainly applies to its overall theme about the collective search for connection and communion in a technology-fueled world increasingly splintered, distracted and lonely. As band co-founder Ed Jurdi, who first learned of the term, explains, “It’s the essence of the artist,” or as partner Gordy Quist says, “It’s a word we don’t have an equivalent for in English, Artistically, that’s where we tried to set the bar, to do what this band does best.” Indeed, Duende lives up to those high ideals, a stylistically diverse effort that takes a leap beyond their last, more acoustic, introspective effort, 2013’s Sunday Morning Record, with an eclectic batch of material that shows where The Band of Heathens has been, but more importantly, where they are going.

Green River Ordinance (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 8 PM

At the core of Fifteen, the third studio album from Green River Ordinance, is a simple message: hold fast to the things that are true. Much of the freedom found on Fifteen comes from the fact that the band recorded it on its own terms. In 2011 they set out to make the kind of music that was true to them, away from the demands and restrictions of commercial music. “In that world, everything is about the three minute pop hit,” explains Jenkins. “We wanted the freedom to dig in and create our own sound.” Their first experiment out of the gate validated their instincts: “Dancing Shoes” became a breakout hit. As a band that makes music on their own terms with a focus on the things that matter most, Green River Ordinance constantly challenges the borders of genre, walking the lines of Country, Rock, Pop and Folk. This sense of freedom has evolved over the group’s 15-year career, and radiates throughout their latest album, Fifteen, which was released in January 2016.

White Denim (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 7 PM

Austin’s White Denim latest album ‘Stiff,’ was released in 2016, three years after the critical and commercial breakout of ‘Corsicana Lemonade’, which landed the band bookings with Kimmel (from SXSW), Austin City Limits, Letterman, Conan, and Jools Holland, raves from Rolling Stone, SPIN, WSJ, Gorilla vs. Bear + more, and headlining slots at their biggest venues to date by far. Turns out they were just getting warmed up. For ‘Stiff,’ White Denim enlisted producer Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Laura Marling), the first time the band has worked with an outside producer for an entire album. The album was recorded completely live to 16-track tape with few overdubs, and the resulting 9 adrenaline-fueled tracks signal a return to White Denim’s frenetic rock band roots.

Kiefer Sutherland (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 6 PM

Kiefer Sutherland has been a professional actor for over 30 years, starring in movies like ‘Stand By Me’, ‘The Lost Boys’, ‘Young Guns’, Flatliners’, ‘A Few Good Men’, ‘A Time to Kill’, ‘Dark City’, ‘Melancholia’ and most recently, a western called ‘Forsaken,’ as well as the TV series ‘24.’ But unknown to many during the course of his career, he has taken on other vocations with the same kind of dedication and commitment. The first one, beginning around 1992, was that of a cattle rancher and competitive cowboy (roper) in the team roping circuit. He ran a successful ranch with partner John English for almost a decade. In 2002, Sutherland, with his music partner and best friend Jude Cole, began a small record label called Ironworks to record local musicians and distribute their music at a time when the music industry was going through a monumental shift. In 2009, Sutherland left the label to recharge and figure out what he was going to do next. In early 2015 Sutherland played Cole two songs he had written and wanted to record as demos for other artists to record. Cole responded positively to the songs and the album grew organically from those recordings. Two songs became four and four grew into six, until Cole suggested that they make a record. Their collaboration resulted in Kiefer Sutherland’s upcoming debut album: ‘Down In A Hole’.

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.
