    Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes (new location)

    Power diva Clairy Browne and her harmonizing girl group The Bangin’ Rackettes formed in 2009 over a mutual love of nineties dance videos, early rhythm n’ blues records and big hair. The band’s sound takes you through their original interpretation of soul, jump blues, doo-wop, ska and r’n’b, while telling a story which is very much about the here and now. Their live show is an experience from start to finish, often starting with a marching band playing outside the venue, processions through the room and cameos from other singers and dancers performing from within the crowd. These dynamic and energetic live shows are created with the intention of taking their audience to another place, with their contemporary take on the heightened hysteria of 1960’s music TV.

    With THE PROWLING KIND. Tickets from The Western will be honored. This show is 21+ Tickets available at STINKWEEDS.

    Josh Berwanger Band (Ex-Anniversary)

    Josh Berwanger could easily be considered a veteran of the rock and roll wars. He first made a name for himself as a member of The Anniversary, a seminal Kansas band that released two glorious albums (2000’s Designing a Nervous Breakdown and 2002’s Your Majesty) and selling over 100,000 records before imploding in a breakup of Fleetwood Mac-style proportions while attempting to tour Japan.

    Berwanger’s songs are born out of love, heartbreak, fear and frustration. They sound as big and open and honest as a Kansas skyline and speak to the struggle, unique to someone trying to slug it out in the music business for most of their adult life. Berwanger is, any many ways, a visceral statement about what it means to keep doing what you love—even when it feels like you are doing so against all odds.

    Presented by STINKWEEDS. Don't miss this intimate performance at LAWN GNOME. All ages!!!

    Tori Amos

    I'll always have a sweet spot for Tori... she was one of the musical goddesses of the 90's along with Bjork and PJ Harvey (Anyone remember the Q magazine cover they were all on together? I know, I'm dating myself) but really, back to the music... a girl on a piano singing beautiful yet alternative tunes? Who would've thought that that would make it onto the airwaves... but it did. She is still making music and will be stopping by for a show at Mesa Arts Center this summer... ears with feet, buy your tickets now!

This Ain't Kansas These shows will sell out soon
