Jeremy Pinnell

Thursday November 11

Show: 9:00

Tickets: $5.00

When Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as, a “Mind-blowingly good” (Greg Vandy/KEXP) “ ”tutorial on classic country music” (Popmatters), Pinnell’s debut immediately differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the States and celebrated radio sessions followed, cementing Pinnell’s position as a no-fuss master of his craft. His 2017 album, Ties of Blood and Affection presented a canny lateral move. Instead of doubling down on the stark themes and values of his debut, the sophomore album found Pinnell finding comfort in his own skin, achieving the redemption only hinted at in his previous batch of haunted songs. If the third time’s a charm, Pinnell is all shine and sparkle on the forthcoming Goodbye LA. Produced by Texan Jonathan Tyler, the tunes buff the wax and polish the chrome on Country music’s deeper roots. Rooted in his steady acoustic guitar, Pinnell’s songs are shot through with honest and classic elements. The rhythm section, all snap and shuffle, finds purpose in well worn paths. The pedal steel and Telecaster stingers arrive perfectly on cue, winking at JP’s world-wise couplets . Here slippery organ insinuates gospel into the conversation. You can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed to tape. And through it all comes this oaken identity, the devastating centerpiece of his work. Honest and careworn, Jeremy’s voice can touch on wry, jubilant, and debauched - all in a single line. At his best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that anyone could do.

Dalton & The Sheriffs

Friday November 12

Show: 9:00

Tickets: $7.00

The one constant in Dalton & the Sheriffs’ remarkable rise from three-hour sets in the barrooms of Boston, to national stages such as CMA Fest, is the band’s authenticity. Brian Scully (vocals/acoustic guitar), Jon Silva (lead guitar), James Zaner (drums), Sam Bouve (bass) and Ryan Jackson (keys/guitars) rip through shows with frenetic energy, perhaps best described as country music, tinged with Americana heartland vibes, and played with a bar-friendly edge-of-punk rowdiness. Everyone sings along. The patrons are as much a part of the show as the band itself. The result is a live band that manages to make every show -- from small clubs to the largest of festivals -- feel a little like a reunion of like-minded souls at their favorite local bar.

The Shootouts

w/ Steel Blossoms

Thursday December 2

Show: 9:00

Tickets: $5.00

The Shootouts debut album “Quick Draw” is an effortless blend of high-energy honky-tonk and traditional country music mixed with touches of Americana and western swing. The band marries a blend of Roy Orbison and Bob Wills with the barn-burning sounds of Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives and Dwight Yoakam. The combination offers a welcome throwback to sounds that flowed out of Nashville, Texas and California in country music’s golden years.

Composed of lead-singer Ryan Humbert, guitarist Brian Poston, bassist Ryan McDermott, drummer Dylan Gomez, backing vocalist Emily Bates and longtime sideman Al Moss on pedal steel, The Shootouts have shared the stage with a wide range of artists like Sheryl Crow, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Rosie Flores, Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives, Lake Street Dive, Jim Lauderdale, Robbie Fulks, Radney Foster, Zac Brown Band, Soul Asylum, Chris Isaak and more.

“Quick Draw” was recorded in Brooklyn, NY with producers Luca Benedetti and Jim Campilongo (Cake, Norah Jones, The Little Willies.) “We were attracted to the project by the earnest songwriting and strong musicianship,” said Campilongo and Benedetti, “The Shootouts are a hard-working and passionate band, and together we created an album to be proud of.”

Upon release in May of 2019, “Quick Draw” received stellar reviews and world-wide radio play, spending over nine weeks on the “Americana Radio Top 50” album chart as well as reaching the “Alt-Country Radio Top 20” chart.

Drake Milligan

Friday January 21

Show: 9:30

Cover: $8

At only 19 years old, Drake Milligan moved from Fort Worth, Texas to Music City. Armed with an appreciation for the history of country music, Milligan listened intently during co-writes and recording sessions, where songwriters taught him how to tell a story, legendary producers taught him how to use the mics and studio as a vehicle for his voice, seasoned musicians were willing to back the new guy, and his country music heroes shared insightful advice on how to seamlessly shift from the studio and the stage. Now at 23 years old, wisdom instilled, he’s ready to introduce himself to the world with the release of his debut EP, Drake Milligan. The five tracks will be his debut not only as a songwriter but an artist, who works tirelessly to hone his craft. Co-writing every song on the EP, he tapped into different themes to showcase his songwriting talent and vocal chops. Milligan layers the fiddle and steel in the trouble-drowning, alcohol-soaked “Over Drinkin’ Under Thinkin’” and rediscovers the lost art of fast talking in the upbeat, rebellious “Sounds Like Something I’d Do.” But it’s not all up tempo toe-tappers. It’s in the ballads that he really showcases his deep, smooth as silk vocals. “Don’t Look Down” has Milligan painting a picture of falling in love on a dance floor, defying gravity thanks to the honky-tonk’s trusty old jukebox, and “She” is a beautifully simple but emotive depiction of a lovesick boy, listing off everything he loves about a girl. Produced by award-winning industry icon Tony Brown and songwriter/producer Brandon Hood, Drake Milligan’s forthcoming self-titled EP is due out July 23 from BBR Music Group / Stoney Creek Records.

Grady Spencer & The Work

Friday February 4

Show: 9:30

Cover: $10

Born in Lubbock and raised in the country outside of a town called Paducah, Grady Spencer’s roots dig deep into Texas soil. By day, Spencer is a superintendent for a commercial construction company. By any other time, he’s songwriter and front-man of Grady Spencer & The Work. The Work originally formed in 2013 on the stage of Paradox Church in Fort Worth, Texas. Drummer Blake Sager was joined by bassist Johnny Hatcher in 2016, followed by guitarist Tyler Martin in 2018. The Work’s music reflects its members: honest, good-timing, with a nod to blue-collar roots. In 2013, the band recorded and self-produced its first album at 1916 Studios in Kyle, Texas. Sleep featured Spencer and Trevor Powell on guitar and vocals, Blake Atwell on guitar, Sager on drums, and Josh Brandenburg on bass. The album was released that same year and was the band’s first introduction to the Fort Worth music scene. “Things to Do” was eventually picked up by the Fort Worth Visitors Bureau via Tom Martens, and in 2017 the city sent Spencer and The Work to Niles City Sound to rerecord and release the track as a single. Sophomore record The Line Between was primarily tracked at January Sound in Dallas, Texas. The band worked with Magnolia Records and released the album in 2016. Spencer’s vocals and guitar were once again accompanied by Powell on guitar and Sager on drums, with Steve Moore on bass, producer Ryan Tharp on guitar, and Cody Culberson singing harmonies. This album carried the band beyond Fort Worth city limits—a following started to crop up across the state and numbers rose on streaming platforms, catapulting The Work to their next album.
