James McMurtry (Jonny Burke opens)
TICKETS: $12 | DOORS: 7 PM

James McMurtry spins stories with a poet’s pen and a painter’s precision. Proof: The acclaimed songwriter’s new Complicated Game. McMurtry’s first collection in six years spotlights a craftsman in absolutely peak form as he turns from political toward personal. Further evidence: McMurtry’s Just Us Kids (2008) and Childish Things (2005). The former earned his highest Billboard 200 chart position in nearly two decades and notched Americana Music Award nominations. Meanwhile, Childish Things scored endless critical praise and spent six full weeks topping the Americana Music Radio chart in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, Childish Things won the Americana Music Association’s Album of the Year and “We Can’t Make It Here” was named the rapidly rising organization’s Song of the Year.

Two Ton Tuesday 2017 Doors: 7:30 PM

Before there was Americana, before there was Texas Country, Two Tons Of Steel front man Kevin Geil and his band rocked a sound that blended the best of musical worlds and pushed the envelope of “Texas” sound with a signature brand of high-energy country meets raw punk. The San Antonio-based band continues to push the line between country and punk with their wildly popular Two Ton Tuesday summer series. If you haven’t caught Two Ton fever yet, grab your dancing shoes and get ready. The band takes the stage at 8:30pm. Come early for Swing Dance Lessons from 6 to 7pm ($8 per person).

The Bacon Brothers (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $45 | Doors: 7 PM

Kevin and Michael Bacon have been writing songs and playing music together since about the same time they may have been fighting over Lincoln Logs or little green Army guys. Although the Bacon Brothers have only been a working band since 1995, they too, run decades deep. This has been their hallmark; writing songs that, through bare self-expression and humor, echo the lives of others. It’s an art they’ve refined over three albums and in the 50 to 60 shows they play each year. And with each album and tour, the Bacon Brothers move further away from perceived “don’t tap on the glass” sideshow to a “raise your lighter and sing along” rock band, garnering fan after fan and shattering the obstacle of perception. The band began when Michael received an invitation to play a one-off gig at a local club in their hometown of Philadelphia. It went off well, and Kevin and Michael decided to explore its potential. In eight years of recording and touring, the band has become a top live draw and continues to build momentum. “When we first started, the people who attended our shows came strictly to see Kevin Bacon, the movie star,” says Michael. “Now people come to see and hear The Bacon Brothers.”

The Black Lillies 2017 (Dustin Schaefer opens)
Tickets: $12| Doors: 7 PM

The Black Lillies are a band for the ages: rich, rootsy tunes performed with as much heart as technical virtuosity. If you ask them, they’ll tell you they play “Tennessee music” – combining strains of swampy Memphis soul and blues with Nashville’s classic country and East Tennessee’s traditional Appalachian style – while Rolling Stone describes it as “country music with a soul-rock infusion, supported by bandleader Cruz Contreras’ smart songwriting and tight musicianship.” Either way, it’s music that stirs your soul, touches your heart and makes you want to dance. On October 2, 2015, the band released their fourth album Hard to Please (Attack Monkey/Thirty Tigers), which American Songwriter sums up as “a soulful mix of upbeat Americana and tender ballads,” while Vanity Fair notes that “their sound continues to cross generations and musical genres – country, folk, blues and add in a touch of the Dead, for good measure.”

Cory Morrow (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

An Austin legend, by way of Lubbock and his native Houston, Cory Morrow has been a consistent fixture on the Texas Country scene – establishing himself as a pioneer of the growth of the Lone Star State’s brand of Country music in the past decade. Now married and actively touring with a new band, with a renewed outlook on his life and career, Cory is set to release the latest volume of Red Dirt poetry in his musical tapestry. In seventeen years, Cory Morrow has released nine full-length albums and an EP in Spring 2010, selling over 200,000 records, and has entertained audiences across the United States. Listen to Cory Morrow’s music and you’ve got a pretty good idea of the man, because this is one singer who just can’t fake it. When Cory Morrow sings about the emotionally charged breakup of a relationship – you believe him. When he sings about night-life good timin’ – you trust that he’s been there. When he shares wisdom – you know he’s earned it. Because if any single word sums up a performer as multifaceted as Cory Morrow, it’s “authentic.”

Curtis Grimes 2015 (Drew Fish (acoustic) and Jake Ward open)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 8 PM

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.

Radney Foster (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Singer /songwriter/producer Radney Foster has always been revered in the music community as a lyricist and a dry West Texas poet. One look at the folks who have covered his songs (everyone from Hootie and the Blowfish and the Pistoleros to the Dixie Chicks and Guy Clark) and you realize this guy is not easily categorized. As one half of the duo Foster and Lloyd, he recorded three groundbreaking albums, becoming one of the first acts to be played simultaneously on Country and College radio. When the duo split up in the late ‘80s, Foster recorded two solo albums that yielded a handful of hits and a reputation as one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. His songs, like “Nobody Wins” and “A Fine Line” had a lyrical edge and pop sensibilities that often challenged mainstream Country conventions. Throughout his solo career, folks like Emmylou Harris, Hootie and the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker and Dierks Bentley have jumped at the chance to work with him and lend vocal support to his projects – a further testament to Foster’s influence. Foster has served as host for the critically acclaimed CMT Crossroads, and has produced projects by Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers Band, Brandon Rhyder and others.
