NELSON STREET REIVIVAL (8:30 pm): Nelson Street Revival is a new Chicago Roots, Blues and Soul jamband supergroup with an insane pedigree featuring Cathy Richardson (Jefferson Starship, Love, Janis), Peaches Staten, Anne Harris, Ellen Miller, Dave Herrero, Tony Dale, Marvin Little and Jon Wade. Expect a high energy, booty shaking, earth rattling, soul moving experience as these music veterans interpret standards, re-imagine classic rock and modern pop songs, draw from their deep well of original songs as solo artists, and go off on some sick jams.
BONES JUGS: (6:30-8) From the depths of Urbana, IL Bones Jugs has emerged as the premier xylophone driven roots Americana act in the country. With bones, jug, xylophone, kazoos, resonator guitar, 6-string banjo, upright bass, trap kit, horns, washboard and a medley of knick-knacks and noise makers Bones Jugs conjures up their eclectic acoustic sound. It’s a 21st century spin on early American music, that includes, but is not limited to, ragtime, dixieland, jugband, bluegrass, blues, string band, skiffle, spasm, swing and more. Whether it be with original songs, with hidden gems of the written or recorded archives, or with their own take on modern music, Bones Jugs places their unique stamp on everything they play. If you’re looking for a sound that you’ve heard around town, Bones Jugs may let you down, if you expect the unexpected you’ll get just what you expected!
