June 23, 2016 by Ryan Baker
9pm start – No Cover
Samuel Barker (Houston, TX Folk/Alt. Country/Singer-Songwriter for fans of John Moreland, Son Volt, Drag the River, Tim Barry and other sad bastard music)
After spending years on the road playing shows with the mere hope of recouping travel costs, the title of the album, All This For Gas Money?, was natural. It’s not a slight against the life, but a playful joke for those who live it. It’s a testament to keeping your head up after averaging 149 miles per show for an average payout of $36 for 2010. You covered the cost to get there, so keep going!
Frederick the Younger (Louisville, KY lo fi indie pop / rock for fans of Dr Dog, The Shins
Frederick the Younger has no shortage of guitar hooks, ambient washes, and bombastic drumming. Their infectious rhythm section and jangly guitars are the perfect companion to Jenni’s lush vocals that harken back to an earlier time. Their songs blend vintage pop melodies, unique harmonies, and uncommon chord changes and are as explosive as they are intimate. Treading a broad sonic landscape, their live performances keep the energy high while still embracing the vulnerable moments.
