UPCOMING EVENTS

Moon Taxi

The members of Moon Taxi are no strangers to the stage. Hailing from Nashville, the five-piece formed in 2006 and set out to conquer the Southeast with their unforgettable live set. Nine years later, they’ve amassed over one thousand shows and released two albums, Cabaret (2012) and Mountains Beaches Cities (2013). The latter landed the band their first National late-night television appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman and Conan as well as multiple commercial and TV placements including BMW, Nashville, MLB, NFL and HBO Sports to name a few. With a rabid fan base under their belts, they’ve upped the ante this year to become a festival favorite with recent performances at Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Wakarusa, Houston Free Press and upcoming appearances at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

Cherub

Cherub is an avant-garde, electro-pop duo that is the dance lovechild of 80’s funk, and pop music from the future. Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance. Cherub’s music is a fresh electrified take on risqué pop music that brings to mind timeless artists like Prince, Zapp and Roger, and more contemporary Justin Timberlake. With a live show that is bouncing with energy, Cherub dances their way into the hearts of audiences from the first falsetto hook, until the very last delay filters out. Cherub’s live performances captivate audiences with swooping vocals, soaring guitars, wild talkbox, and ethereal harmonies, from the drop of the first beat, until Jordan and Jason dance their way off stage. -www.sonicbids.com

Yonder Mountain String Band

Fusing bluegrass with elements of rock, progressive, and improvisational music, the Yonder Mountain String Band have become one of the most celebrated acts on the acoustic music scene.  Bending bluegrass, rock and countless other influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but they’ve created their own music that transcends any genre. Dave Johnston points out “What could be more pure than making your own music.” Yonder’s sound cannot be classified purely as “bluegrass” or “string music” but rather it’s an original sound created from “looking at music from own experiences and doing the best job possible.” The band continues to play by their own rules on their new record The Show.

Date: Sunday, October 9
Time: Doors open at 7:00pm, show at 8:00pm
