IN THE CLUB:
MOONRISE NATION (10 pm): A young fresh ensemble with a pop sensibility, that speaks for an upcoming generation. As musicians and writers, they craft songs that are anchored in alternative folk with meaningful lyrics and deliver with compelling stage presence in their live shows." They are Emma McCall (guitar), Arden Baldinger (keyboard) and Eva Baldinger (bass, cello).
MICHIGANDER (8:45 pm: Michigander (aka Jason Singer) is an indie rock act from west Michigan that has been gaining a lot of momentum after the release of his debut single “Nineties”. The song is in regular rotation on dozens of college radio stations around the country, and has been featured on official Spotify playlists including "Indie All Stars" and "Viral Hits" accumulating over half a million plays since its release. Although live shows and recordings consist of a full band, Michigander at its core is a solo project. Jason has also recorded sessions with Audiotree, Daytrotter, and So Far. In April 2017 Michigander released a new single called ‘Fears” which was premiered on DIY (UK) and featured on NPR’s World Cafe. https://www.facebook.com/michiganderband/
EMILY BLUE (7:30 pm): Emily Blues is a rare flavor of pop. Glitchy, sophisticated, and infectiously catchy, the Chicago vocalist and writer draws inspiration from Maggie Rogers, FKA Twigs, and Sylvan Esso. Her most recent release, nicknamed #BubbleGumAcidPop, features the dual-single "Blackberries // Rico Acid," which gives a small but powerful preview of Blue’s (and producer Max Perenchio's) capabilities. Her love of quirk and color expand into the new visual for "Rico Acid," which premiered July 21 via ELEVATOR magazine. Look out for a very packed 2017 for Blue, whose musical direction may lean into even stranger territory. https://emilybluemusic.com
IN THE SIDEBAR:
THE HOYLE BROTHERS (10 pm): The Hoyle Brothers approach their music the way a preacher might prepare for a sermon: Reference the good Book, find a theme that resonates and deliver it with fire and passion. That’s what makes The Hoyle Brothers so special. Their brand of genuine country music draws from the genre’s deepest traditions–lyrics that speak universal truths, melody lines that melt your heart and two-step rhythms that make your boots scoot. http://www.hoylebrothers.com
ALLEGRA MALONE (8:30 pm): Performances began at church with her grandfather — a church pianist and composer. Singing took the stage first, but soon piano and guitar became tools for writing music. Allegra’s reflective and celebratory gospel roots later carried over into performances as a vocalist in New York City, once on her own. The new music is a return to the Muscle Shoals roots of her upbringing — a departure from the simplicity of her solo debut. Remnant of old fashioned, iconic groves, the new album draws from R&B, old country and roots rock. Allegra plays acoustic and electric guitar, spinning evocative lyrics with vocals that hit the core. She is accompanied by atmospheric genius, Brian Wilkie, on Tele and pedal steel, Larry Beers on drums, Scott Stevenson on keys and Cathie Van Wert on fiddle. The sound is youthful and bright, while remnant of another time — an uplifting experience that will always be relevant. https://www.facebook.com/allegra.malone/?ref=bookmarks
MILKMONEY (7 pm): Some might consider MilkMoney a jam band however, others think they are more of a rock band that just plays well together. Dave and Jodi Walker have a jazz background, Michael Palmer has a bluegrass/americana background. Brian Mahoney & Derek Inksetter come with rock experience. Weather they are playing a simple melody, or something with sophisticated timing, they seem to pull it off well. https://www.facebook.com/MilkMoney-227991067259890/
