Jessica Maros is the UN of indie rock. Born to Slovakian immigrant parents who migrated to Canada, this songstress splits time between Nashville and Vancouver. On a night full of testosterone, her sweet shimmy will be a nice contrast to all the boys that follow.
Micah Tawlks will grace us with his Americana stylings. He's a modern troubadour making the girls swoon. Listen closely for the pedal steel and violins adding some depth to his acoustic based indie-folk sound.
I wrote a bit about Mountain Man a few months back when I first caught them by chance at the Troc in Philly. They are the lone out-of-towners on the bill and if their rapid rise in Philly is any indication, a band we'll be hearing tons from in the near future. They have played all the top Philly clubs and already scored some live air time on WXPN. And, they just won the Philly region Emergenza show that took them to NYC to play Webster Hall where they finsihed 7th among all East Coast finalists. Now they are set to conquer Nashville and beyond with they homespun "hippie sway" brand of indie folk rock.
Brett Rosenberg has toured extensively as a guitarist in Graham Parker's band. Now he's settled down for a bit in Nashville to break out on his own. Come out to see if he does his former boss proud!
The Incredible Heat Machine were not fooling around when choosing a name. These boys from Murfreesboro bring the heat. Knoxville 520 says "To go along with the grit and complex rhythms that come with the prog rock territory The Heat adds in their love of the jamband scene utilizing genre fusion and improvisational segues that might send you on a Bonnaroo flashback." Word.
Closing out the night will be The Go Show. Also from Murfreesboro, they just played Summerfest in Milwaukee with the likes of Earl Greyhound, Wolfmother, Silversun Pickups, The Black Crowes, Bob Weir & RatDog and many other big names of the day. So we're pleased they can come "do that work" at the French Quarter for Earvolution this Saturday night. Festivities kick off at 8pm. Come on down!
