Dirty River Boys (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $15 | DOORS: 8 PM

Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances, and winning over a loyal audience show-by-show, The Dirty River Boys have notched a number of significant milestones, opening for legend Willie Nelson several times and selling out the famed Gruene Hall. All four members of DRB have a hand in the songwriting, and all four sing as well, while members often switch off instruments during shows. This isn’t just a vehicle for a songwriting front man, with an interchangeable crew of instrumentalists bringing those ideas to life. And so, after a pair of EPs and an album, “Science of Flight,” that served as a tour calling card, the time couldn’t be better for an anthemic, hook-laden declaration of intent, served up to an audience beyond DRB’s Texas diehards. The record is both a cohesive statement and a dizzying testament to the band’s capabilities, as it shifts gears between genres with the skill of a long-haul trucker.

Cody Jinks (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $12 | Doors: 7 PM

Tickets on sale July 7 at 1 pm. Conceived in a honky tonk long, long ago, Cody now makes his living in them. Accompanied by the Tone Deaf Hippies, he rolls across the land and the oceans onto other lands to sow a collective musical seed. Not like the brazen giant of “Texas/Red Dirt” fame, he is a fair-sized man with a Zippo whose flame longs to be ignited by the sound of real music.

Give Green a pen and paper and he is a lyrical force to be reckoned with. His critically acclaimed third release, Rose Queen, has already marked a number of milestones for the young storyteller. The debut single, “It’s About Time”, earned William his first Top Ten song on Texas Radio. The momentum did not stop there as his follow up single, “She Likes The Beatles,” scored the #1 position on both the Texas Music Chart (TMC) and the Texas Regional Radio Report (TRRR). At this rate, the sky is the limit as everyone waits to see what William Clark Green has up his sleeve next.

Jonathan Tyler (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $12 | DOORS: 7 PM

Jonathan Tyler did the rock star thing. He played Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Hangout Fest and the Voodoo Experience. He performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and toured alongside AC/DC, ZZ Top, Grace Potter and Kid Rock. His 2010 LP, Pardon Me, with backing band The Northern Lights reached No. 8 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart. His songs were featured in TV shows Boardwalk Empire and Friday Night Lights. It was everything he thought he’d wanted. It was everything he’d signed up for. But it wasn’t really him. These days, Tyler really does come off as a changed man – in person and on record alike. He’s more introspective, more focused. Holy Smokes, his forthcoming third proper LP, finds Tyler shed of major-label constraints, bearing his soul as songwriter who’s seen the top of the mountain and now seeks a different kind of climb, one filled less with flash and more with substance.

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

Hayes Carll hasn’t been resting on his laurels since topping critic’s polls and winning awards for his 2008 album, Trouble in Mind. Instead, he’s been on the road nearly nonstop with his band, “The Poor Choices”, blasting through honky tonks and rock clubs across the US and beyond. Raised a sixth-generation Texan in a Houston suburb, Carll found inspiration early on in Kerouac and Dylan, and hit the road after college. His first two indie albums, Flowers and Liquor (2002) and Little Rock (2004), garnered an enthusiastic and ever-expanding audience, as did his engaging live shows, sparked by Carll’s humorous storytelling and between-song patter. Along the way he has written with some of his songwriting role models, including Guy Clark and Ray Wylie Hubbard, with whom he collaborated on “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” one of the attention-getting tracks on Trouble in Mind.

Bob Schneider (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 8 PM

Bob Schneider’s fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin’s history, winning over thirty Austin Music Awards. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice provide a good complement to his semi-confessional songwriting. The real beauty of Schneider’s artistic career is about the freedom to constantly write, record and stockpile songs. While he’s already released hundreds of songs with his bands, Schneider estimates there were at least a thousand songs that didn’t fit his band’s concepts.
