    North Mississippi Allstars & Anders Osborne

    North Mississippi Allstars formed in 1996; the product of a special time for modern Mississippi hill country blues. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson soaked up the music of their father, Memphis legend Jim Dickinson, and absorbed the North Mississippi legacy while playing and shaking it down in the juke joints with their blues ancestors. R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Otha Turner and their musical families were at their peak, making classic records and touring the world. Eventually, Luther (guitar, vocals) and Cody (drums, vocals) formed the North Mississippi Allstars and pioneered their own brand of blues-infused rock and roll.

    Between the potency of his richly detailed songwriting, his intensely emotional, soulful vocals and his piercing, expert guitar work, New Orleans' Anders Osborne is a true musical treasure. He is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. Guitar Player calls him "the poet laureate of Louisiana's fertile roots music scene." New Orleans' Gambit Weekly recently honored Osborne as the Entertainer Of The Year.

    This show is 21+ Tickets at STINKWEEDS.

    Bronze Radio Return, Swear and Shake and American Longspurs

    Hartford, Connecticut's Bronze Radio Return got rolling in 2008 and play American roots rock with a definite passion. The latest disc from this band is Up, On & Over.

    Joining Bronze Radio Return on this tour is Swear and Shake. The duo of Adam McHeffey on guitar, banjo and vocals and Kari Spieler on guitar and vocals started playing together while still in college. The two recorded a song together by the name of "Johnnie", a track which helped the two recruit more members and form a band. Swear and Shake play a style they refer to as "big hook Americana".

    American Longspurs is an alt country band from Phoenix that will set the tone for the night perfectly. The band released a new single by the name of "Whiskey Feelin" that will be a part of an album due out later this year. 21+ show

    Bad Religion

    This show is going to be unbelievable, Bad Religion is one of my all-time favorite punk bands and even though Off! is a newer band they sound as old-school as it gets!

    Swans

    Swans puts on one of the most intense shows I've ever seen. Michael Gira continues to innovate on ideas he's been working with, since the early days of Swans, in the early 80s. The newest incarnation of this group still has elements of the original experimental, folk/industrial sound, but takes on a more pounding rhythmic feel, similar to that of Tom Waits or Nick Cave.

    Ed Kowalczyk [SOLD OUT]

    Okay, I never got to see Live during the 90's, so I'm quite curious of this tour... I loved Throwing Copper and would love to hear 'White, Dicussion' and of course Ed sing the line "Pale blue covered iris..." of Lightning Crashes because I'm cheesy like that!

    Jarabe De Palo

    Jarabe de Palo is unquestionably one of the biggest bands on the Hispano-American music scene in the last two decades. Jarabe De Palo is Rock, funk, jazz and blues in a fusion with flamenco, Afro-Caribbean, Cuban and Brazilian music. Influences with a definite Latin feel intermeshed with other very strong musical influences from the Anglo-Saxon world. The result: pure fusion rock.

    The Decemberists (Sold Out!)

    The Decemberists—Meloy, Chris Funk (guitars), Jenny Conlee (keyboards), Nate Query (bass), and John Moen (drums)—had announced that they would be taking a break when their touring cycle finished following the release of 2011’s “The King is Dead.” Meloy wanted to spend time with his family and work on the children’s book series that became the acclaimed, best-selling Wildwood trilogy. To be sure, they had reached a new peak in their career: King entered the Billboard album charts at Number One, and the track “Down by the Water” was nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Rock Song” category.

    MATT POND PA

    MATT POND PA at Crescent Ballroom for the 10th Anniversary of Several Arrows! Young Buffalo opens the night.

    "The upcoming year will follow the same path as the last. The band is planning a 10 Year Anniversary Tour in support of another one of their most beloved albums, Several Arrows Later, as well as releasing The State of Gold to the masses.

    The man behind it all, Matt Pond, continues to defy the labels placed on him. Ever-restless and searching, no matter where he is writing from, the music holds one commonality across every album and song—it’s all an effort to communicate. Both in the lyrics and arrangements he creates there is a desire to connect the cognitive harmonies that exist between everyone.

    There isn't a person alive who can escape stumbling over a tree root every now and then. But Matt Pond continues to believe, in music and in people. He knows that accompaniment is key, and in many ways, is the core of what he does. His name on the marquee shouldn't overshadow the likes of Chris Hansen, Tierney Tough or Shawn Alpay, the band’s current core. And names from the past deserve homage as well, like Jim Hostetter, Eve Miller, Mike Kennedy, Brian Pearl, Dan Crowell, Steven Jewett, Josh Kramer, Dan Ford and so many more. These people have participated in different configurations over the life of the band, but they are still vital to maintaining Matt Pond PA’s place as one of the most unique and prolific bands that exist today."
