    Willie Watson

    For nearly two decades, Willie Watson has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. He’s a folksinger in the classic sense: a singer, storyteller, and traveller, with a catalog of songs that bridge the gap between the past and present. Southern gospel. Railroad songs. Delta blues. Irish fiddle tunes. Appalachian music. Folksinger Vol. 2 makes room for it all. Produced by David Rawlings, the album carries on a rich tradition in folk music: the sharing and swapping of old songs.

    With Donivan Berube. This show is 21+ Tickets at STINKWEEDS.

    Based in Montreal, Ought are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and exuberant post-punk: dextrous and exacting while bursting with propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap’n Jazz as to Talking Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple. Guitarist and vocalist Tim Darcy’s declarative, observational style ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or emotional detachment.

    The Blasters and Mike Eldred Trio

    Tonight is going to be a great show folks, especially since the two bands have so much in common with each other, both musically and in terms of band members!

    It is amazing to believe that The Blasters are still playing FOUR decades after initially forming in 1978 with 3/4 of the original line-up still intact, led by vocalist and guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman and bassist John Bazz. Brother Dave Alvin was the original guitarist for the band until he left to pursue a solo career in 1986. Ten years later in 1996 Keith Wyatt joined The Blasters and continues to play guitar for the band. The Blasters were part of the original Los Angeles punk scene of the early eighties with X and Black Flag. Like X The Blasters never allowed themselves to be limited by the punk genre, adding bits of blues, rockabilly and R&B to their music. The band has released six studio albums and three live albums over the years. Their sophomore release and first on Slash Records The Blasters in 1981 is one of those must-have albums if you are even a casual fan of roots rock.

    Sunday January 14, 2018 the Rhythm Room hosted Mike Eldred's induction into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame. Back on September 23, 2016 the Rhythm Room hosted the CD release party for the newest disc Baptist Town from The Mike Eldred Trio. The band delivers a dynamite set of blues and rock and roll any time they play. Bassist John Bazz was one of the original members of The Blasters and as previously mentioned still plays with that band, original drummer Jerry Angel also played in that great band for a time and vocalist and guitarist Mike Eldred met Angel when the drummer was playing for The Blasters. Brian Fahey, who also drums for The Paladins and is another member of the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame, is now a part of this talented trio as well. Eldred played in the past with former Stray Cat Lee Rocker and he plays a lot of electric and acoustic shows around town. To say that the man can wail on the guitar is an understatement! Think of the psychobilly from Jim Heath of The Reverend Horton Heat meshed with the slick roots rock and rockabilly of Dave Gonzalez from The Paladins, all delivered in a unique style that seriously makes Mike Eldred one of the best guitar slingers in the business. He's that good folks and coupled with that amazing rhythm section you have one killer line-up.

    Yeah, you probably don't want to miss this 21+ show!
