Kerry Pastine & The Crime Scene
Since the release of their album Let's Do This Thing in 2015, Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene have taken the national roots music scene by storm, spending the end of 2015 and most of 2016 touring North America. From sweaty, sold-out small clubs to sharing the main stage of the Bohemian Nights New West Fest with the Steve Miller Band, the Crime Scene shows no signs of slowing down. "The vintage tones swing and punch -- like Joan Jett backed by the Stray Cats," noted Pandora when naming Let's Do This Thing their Pick of the Week of September 1, 2015. Less than 3 months after the release of Let's Do This Thing, the band delivered an eight song holiday EP, It's a Crime Scene Christmas. Stubby's House of Christmas declared, "Every song is an original and every one is a winner. Kerry and company leave the bigger names in the dust. Kerry Pastine is Wanda Jackson, Patsy Cline, Grace Slick and Ann Wilson all rolled into one."

New Year's Eve Party! Young Dubliners with Reno Divorce

Genre: Rock
Doors: 8:00PM
Show: 9:00PM

The hard-rocking Irish band, the Young Dubliners owe everything to their fans. "They keep us honest, expecting good music both on the road and on the albums," mentions frontman Keith Roberts. Building a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, The Young Dubliners have become notorious for the whirling "jig pits" that erupt at their live shows. In fact, the group's origins can be traced back to Los Angeles' vibrant pub scene in which Dublin natives Keith Roberts (vocals, guitar) and Paul O'Toole first met. The Young Dubliners grew into a pugnacious music machine resulting in their debut, the Rocky Road EP (1994). It exhibited a hefty rock sound that made them a club favorite. Breathe followed a year later with the addition of Chas Waltz (violin, keys, harmonica, etc). By 2000, the band had morphed into a septet without O'Toole and released the critically acclaimed Red. The presence of the band sky-rocketed: Gabriel Byrne requested the band to write the theme song for his television show Madigan Men and they spent much of 2001 touring Europe with Jethro Tull, and the US as headliners and as openers for acts such as John Hiatt and Robert Cray. The Young Dubliners also revved up the crowd at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. From Irish-flavored anthemic rock to rowdy pub tunes, lead singer Keith Roberts voice is stronger than ever and the songwriting, performance, and production show a new maturity and artistic ambition. Roberts notes, "Since Absolutely, we've become a much tighter band. It's the first time we've had the same members for two albums in a row, plus we've had the benefit of relentless touring. I think those two factors have really come together to make us sound and write better."

Chris Knight

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Chris Knight doesn't like to say much. Won't chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career that's been hailed as "where Cormac McCarthy meets Copperhead Road", Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record ? as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls ? his songs have had plenty to say. But with his new album Little Victories, Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. His first album of new material in 4 years, Little Victories is a record of blunt honesty, elegiac truths and the raw rural poetry of an artist who's come into his own and intends to stay. And for a performer who's been compared over the years to Cash, Prine, Earle and Nebraska-era Springsteen, Knight now stands alone as a singer/songwriter that has carved his own idiosyncratic sound and sensibility out of the dirt road American dream. Little Victories not only sounds like a Chris Knight album, but the best Chris Knight album yet. "I don't ever get in a big rush about things," Knight says. "I can tour pretty good on what I got. I took my time, like I always do. Write a song every now and then. I don't like to talk about politics, but I do write what I'm thinking about." And if many of the songs on Little Victories seem to take a hard-eyed look at the current socio-economic climate, Knight ? the former strip-mine inspector who still lives in the backcountry coal town of Slaughters, Kentucky (population 200) where he was raised ? is upfront about their origins. "About 2 years ago, we had a big ice storm here in Slaughters that just devastated the whole area," he says. "We were out of power for close to a month, cooking in the fireplace and living by candlelight to survive. Things slowed down to nothing. When we were finally able to head into town, we saw lines of cars for miles outside the gas station. There were hundreds of people outside the hardware store who had nothing even before the storm hit. They weren't prepared for the situation or for each other. I watched their behavior and reactions, and that's when I started writing a bunch of songs I knew would be a part of this record." Little Victories also marks a reunion with producer Ray Kennedy, who'd engineered and mastered Knight's seminal Enough Rope and two Trailer Tapes albums and is well known for his work with Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, John Mellencamp and Lucinda Williams. "Chris wanted to make this record with his road band," explains Kennedy. "And as we were tracking in the studio, the sounds I was sending back through the headphones were pretty tough and edgy. It made everybody crank their amps up higher and dig a little deeper. The sound of any record is about attitude and how it goes down, and much of this record went down like a rock record. Other than a few overdubs, it's pretty much recorded 100% live." This organic approach gives the album an acoustic/electric texture that is both urgently gritty and fiercely expressive, with Knight's twang-rich vocals to match. "Chris digs deepest of all on this record," Kennedy says. "It's the content of his voice as well as the character of the songs. And when you listen to this record a few times, you realize there's a really unique social commentary woven in. I think he's one of our greatest songwriters, period." The album's 11 songs purely rank among Knight's finest. There's busted luck in "Lowdown Ramblin' Blues", hardcore tenacity in "Nothing On Me" and badtempered love in "You Lie When You Call My Name" (co-written with two-time Grammy winner Lee Ann Womack). Buddy Miller provides guest vocals on the ominous commentary of "In The Mean Time" and the ornery regret of "Missing You". "Jack Loved Jesse" is a raging tale of criminal destiny co-written and featuring blistering electric guitar and vocals by former Georgia Satellite and frequent Knight producer Dan Baird. "You Can't Trust No One" emerges as an unsettling paean to small-town American cynicism and anger, and "The Lonesome Way" is a gut-punch of slide-guitar, violin (courtesy Tammy Rogers of The Steeldrivers, who appears throughout the album) and bullheaded regret. The humble acoustic remorse of "Out Of This Hole" is Knight at his most plaintive, and the crushed dreams of "Hard Edges" carry a banjo-tinged melancholy. And if the title track not only finds Knight at his most cheerily optimistic (for Chris, at least), it also features vocals from his lifelong musical hero John Prine. "When I was 16, I got a John Prine songbook and learned about 40 of his songs," Knight explains. "Used to play them for the kids in study hall at school every day. About 20 years later, I finally got to meet him when I opened a few shows for him. He asked me to come out and sing "Paradise" as part of his encore, and I got to play the blonde Martin guitar that was on the cover of his first album. I sent him "Little Victories" and he liked the song enough to be on it." Chris treasures the moment when the two first listened to the playback of their distinctive twangs rasping joyfully together on the chorus. "'Prine turned to me and said, 'We sound pretty good together. Just like Phil and Don Everly.'" So after 15 years, 8 albums and a still uncompromised reputation as one of the best singer/songwriters in America, what has Chris Knight learned from it all? "I've learned that I'm pretty lucky to do what I do and make a living at it," he says. "I'm really proud of this record, and it'll be fun to play these songs live. For people who like my music and maybe even for someone hearing me for the first time, I think they'll find songs on here that mean something to them and they can hang on to. I don't want to talk about it too much, but I think people are gonna be surprised." And for Chris Knight, that's victory enough.

An Evening with Vienna Teng A Benefit for Citizens Climate Lobby

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

?So come out. You have been waiting long enough.? This clarion call opens Aims, Vienna Teng?s fifth studio album. It?s as much a reminder for Vienna herself as an invitation to her listeners ? a call to awaken the full potential within all of us. Indeed, the new album finds Vienna in full adventurous mode. Recorded in Nashville with producer Cason Cooley (Katie Herzig, Matthew Perryman Jones), Aims is exuberant and buoyant in its enthusiasm, yet crafted with the same creative precision that has defined her previous work. The acoustic piano, once the centerpiece of her recordings, plays an occasional supportive role here; in its place are intricate layers of electronica, percussion, strings, and electric guitars. ?Cason and I built a playlist of reference songs when we started working,? Vienna remembers. ?We put Beck and Florence & the Machine and Kanye West on there. James Blake, Foster the People, Vampire Weekend. We started by stealing from the music we were obsessed with.? The result is glorious, intelligent pop music with a signature all its own. Against a backdrop of stomping percussion and a gospel-inspired refrain, ?In the 99? rejects the black-and-white, us-versus-them conflict view of the Occupy movement, instead exploring inequality through the eyes of a compassionate investment banker. In the gorgeous and disturbing ?Hymn of Acxiom,? Vienna sings from the perspective of Big Data, densely layering and manipulating her vocals into an electronically-textured choir to spin an eerily relevant cautionary tale. There are tender moments as well, as in the folk-tinged album closer ?Goodnight New York,? a love letter to a previous home, relationship, and perhaps vocation. ?I?ll say goodnight but it?s never goodbye,? she promises. If Aims is any indication, there?s even finer music to come from this artist in the years ahead.

Midge Ure - Full Band Performance

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

An artist who has received Ivor Novello, Grammy, BASCAP awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, really needs very little introduction. Musical success is seldom measured in time spans of more than a few years, if not Andy Warhol's often quoted "fifteen minutes", so the fact that by the time Midge's single "If I Was" went to No1 in 1985 he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career speaks volumes - Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and of course the most famous one off group in musical history Band Aid had by then all had the guiding hand of his musical navigation. Then you have to take account of Midge's musical directorship of a series of rock concerts for The Prince's Trust, Wicked Women for Breakthrough and in honour of Nelson Mandela; a Lord Provost award for services to Scottish music; record production for Phil Lynott, Steve Harley and countless others; his video direction of memorable hits by the Fun Boy Three, Bananarama and others, or a whole swathe of landmark singles by Ultravox; TV, theatre and film music credits ranging from 'Max Headroom' to stage and big screen.

An Evening With Gerald Albright

Genre: Jazz
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

One of the biggest stars of R&B, contemporary and straight-ahead jazz, Gerald Albright has earned his reputation as a ?musician?s musician.? Born in Los Angeles, he began piano lessons at an early age. Albright?s love of music picked up considerably when he was given a saxophone that had belonged to his piano teacher. By the time he enrolled at the University of Redlands, he was already a polished saxophonist. Albright decided to switch to bass guitar after he saw Louis Johnson in concert. A few months after graduating from college, he joined jazz pianist/R&B singer Patrice Rushen, who was in the process of forming her own band. Later, when the bass player left in the middle of a tour, Albright replaced him and finished the tour on bass guitar. During the ?80s, Albright became a highly requested session musician, playing on albums by a wide variety of artists ? including Anita Baker, Ray Parker, Lola Folana, Atlantic Starr, Olivia Newton-John, the Temptations and Maurice White. He also toured extensively with Les McCann, Jeff Lorber, Teena Marie, the Winans, Marlena Shaw, Quincy Jones, and Whitney Houston, among many others. Albright also went on to record numerous successful solo albums for Atlantic Records. Two albums hit the number one slot on Billboard?s Top Contemporary Jazz Chart, and were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards in 1989 and 1990. Phil Collins asked him to front a Big Band in 1998, and they toured together. The two of them also recorded one of Albright?s tunes, ?Chips N? Salsa? on Collins? Big Band Project, entitled A Hot Night In Paris. Later that year, Albright released Pleasures of the Night with Will Downing on Verve Forecast, which hit No. 1 on Billboard?s Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart as well. Albright moved to GRP in 2002 for the Groovology album, and continued to maintain his busy schedule as a session man. His second GRP album, Kickin? It Up, followed in 2004. Two years later, he signed with Peak Records, which released the 2008 GRAMMY® nominated New Beginnings, and the 2009 GRAMMY® nominated, Sax for Stax; both in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. Over the years, Albright has appeared on numerous TV shows such as A Different World, Melrose Place and BET Jazz segments, as well as piloting a show in Las Vegas with Designing Women star Meshach Taylor. Albright was selected to be one of 10 saxophonists to play at President Clinton?s inauguration ceremony. Along the way, he has sold over a million albums in the U.S. alone and has appeared on nearly 200 albums by other artists. Albright released Pushing The Envelope in June 2010 on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group. Pushing The Envelope is a showcase for Albright?s remarkably fine balance of songcraft and musicianship, and features special guest appearances by Fred Wesley on trombone, Earl Klugh on acoustic guitar and George Duke on acoustic piano. In December 2010, Pushing The Envelope received a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album. On June 19, 2012, Albright teamed up with GRAMMY®-winning guitarist Norman Brown for 24/7, their first album together. Featuring ten killer soul-jazz tracks, 24/7 includes updated versions of ?Tomorrow,? a Brothers Johnson classic from 1976, and ?Champagne Life,? from singer Ne-Yo?s album Libra Scale. 24/7 was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. On August 5, 2014, Albright releases Slam Dunk and continues his reign supreme as the genre?s most compelling and consistent artist. Fans will hear his searing and soulful sax lines on this twelve-track recording. And, they?ll be in for a surprise, as Albright shows off his chops as a bassist, along with his ebullient tenor, baritone and soprano saxophone arrangements on his own compositions, and his super covers of classics by Phil Collins (?True Colors?) and James Brown (?It?s a Man?s, Man?s Man?s World?), with special guest vocalist Peabo Bryson. In December 2014, Slam Dunk received a GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album category.

Tickets on sale 11/7 at 10AM! Howie Day

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Howie Day’s emotionally resonant lyrics and inventive melodies have earned him both critical praise and a legion of devoted fans. He is known for his energetic,heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his songwriting and his quirky sense of humor. Day’s warm tenor voice “soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit,” as one critic put it. After sales of over a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well a s new material from his upcoming studio release. A native of Bangor, Maine, Day began playing piano at age five and guitar at age 12. By 15, he was writing his own songs and performing across New England. Shortly after graduating high school, Day became a fixture at college coffeehouses across the U.S. He wrote, financed and released his first effort, Australia, which was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards. The Boston Globe called Day “gorgeously seasoned, far beyond his years” with “a brave, beautiful singing voice.” During his relentless touring schedule, Day began experimenting with effects pedals and loop-sampling techniques as he performed, layering live percussion with vocal harmonies and guitar parts to become a veritable one-man band. He went on to sell over 30,000 copies of Australia as he navigated the independent music scene and continued to hone his craft. After signing with Epic Records, Day released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, and hit the road to support it. The constant promotion paid off: Stop was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits: “She Says” and the platinum single “Collide.” After three subsequent years of intense worldwide touring, Day moved to Los Angeles and returned to the studio. His next release, Sound the Alarm, built on the emotionally complex spirit of its predecessor and delved into Day’s journey from indie wunderkind to platinum-selling artist. It’s lead single, “Be There,” became a staple at modern AC radio. After parting ways with Epic and relocating to New York City in 2010, Day released the Ceasefire EP on his own label, Daze. New songs began to emerge and evolve at shows across North America and Australia. Day is currently immersed in the recording process of his fourth studio album, which he is crafting with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen. “There is a sense of inherent creativity and imagination to these sessions,” Day says. “Everything seems to be in perfect balance, and I want to capture that energy as it’s happening. Nothing is over or under thought, it’s just in the moment.”

What they have come to discover is something unaffected by fads, trends and the giant maw of mind-numbing commercialism. Some call it arse-kickin' music from the heartland. Robert Oermann of Music Row Magazine calls The Elders "a band to shout from the rooftops about."

Genre: Blues/Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Blues, rock, roots and Americana all have a promising future in the talented hands of Davy Knowles. Just six years into his professional music career, Davy has an impressive record of accomplishments. He has been endorsed by some of the biggest names in the industry, and he has shared the stage and the recording studio with some of his heroes. Born and raised on the Isle of Man (a tiny country located between Ireland and England), Davy fell in love with music making at age 11 when, after hearing the Dire Straits' classic "Sultans of Swing" on his father's car stereo, he learned by ear to play it on his father's guitar. Along with Mark Knopfler, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Peter Green, Eric Clapton/Cream and Rory Gallagher were early, significant influences, and they continue to color his playing and songwriting today. After a relentless tour schedule for the better part of four years in support of his first two albums ("Roll Away" and "Coming Up For Air"), 2013 has allowed Davy to spend more time writing new music and playing select live shows, including a number of intimate, solo/acoustic dates. He joined Peter Frampton, a mentor and the co-producer of his sophomore album, for an August date on Frampton's Guitar Circus Tour, which included a stirring take on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that also featured the wizardry of Sonny Landreth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z45ePUh4So0). Throughout his career, Davy has been surrounded by great musicians, and he's made the most of every occasion.
