MAY 10 I Brand X
8pm I TICKETS: $39/$45
Brand X is touring in support of their new album Locked & Loaded with founders John Goodsall & Percy Jones still at the helm. Keyboardist Chris Clark, Percussionist Scott Weinberger, and Drummer Kenny Grohowski each bring their own creative style of playing that make Brand X such a magical live act.
The seeds were sown years ago in London as players in a studio band for many of Brian Eno’s infamous solo albums. Drummer Phil Collins and Bassist Percy Jones got to know each other through those sessions. Later Jones and Guitarist John Goodsall officially formed Brand X. Phil Collins played simultaneously in Genesis and Brand X for the early years – a balancing act he handled well – and some claim some of Collins best work appears on those Brand X albums. Goodsall, Jones and the band continue to bring the heat, lighting up shows for the past year on their Reunion Tour.
Brand X has been heralded in articles by The Huffington Post, Progression Magazine, , The Mid-Atlantic Music Journal, and more for their consistently red hot and diverse shows. Aside from their world-class musicianship, you’ll find a dry English wit popping up reminiscent of Monty Python, Benny Hill and others.
MAY 11 I ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO
8pm I Tickets: $25/$30/$35
In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco’s famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992’s acclaimed Gravity, Alejandro Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine’s Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two.
Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo’s first solo endeavor since 2012’s highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album’s songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project’s producers.
