Formerly known as Candy’s River House, when this Utah power trio rolled through a year ago, they nearly blew the roof off the place. Buckle up for a night of ferocious blues and southern rock with smoldering guitar fireworks from Jordan Matthew Young. The dude is overflowing with gritty, bluesy soul. Think early Z.Z. Top, Government Mule and The Black Crowes.

This elusive band has etched its name in San Francisco lore going back at least a decade. Emerging back on the scene with fresh energy, they still occupy their own planet within the Nor Cal indie rock galaxy. Led by the captivating, moody songwriting of vocalist/guitarist, Fred Torphy, this is music that hits you at your core. Holding down the bottom end with his signature style is bassist Steve Adams (ALO, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers).

Scott Pemberton’s sound is synonymous with the vibe of his native Portland: fun, funky and just the right amount of weird. Referred to as the “Bruce Lee of rock ‘n roll,” you’ve never seen anyone attack the guitar like him. His band of musical assassins cook up a dynamic stew of funky “Timber Rock”, tropical grooves driven by hypnotic percussion, indie soul and a healthy splash of acid jazz. Their original material is overflowing with energy and their approach to the occasional cover is so unconventional, it must be seen to be believed.

We are thrilled to introduce a new early bird event just in time for the end of summer. This band has become a local institution for anyone who loves the blues. They like to call it “Dirty Blues” but it goes down smooth like a mint julep on a sunny afternoon. When it comes to the sultry, dance-inducing side of the blues equation, you can be sure they have that covered. Harp maestro Scott Hickman leads the charge.
Born on the stage from countless nights playing at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads, this band is a branch of the “community music tree” in Marin County. Venturing deep into the realms of improvisational indie rock, the journey is often more important than the destination. Keyboardist Scott Guberman is a particular stand out and has been featured as a member of Phil Lesh and Friends. This night just got even more exciting with the addition of special guest guitarist Jonny Mojo (Achilles Wheel, Band Beyond Description)!

Hailing from San Francisco, The Good Bad have been a part of the exploding newgrass/progressive bluegrass scene since 2010. They bring a raucous, high-energy take on the string band sound. With mesmerizing stage presence and songwriting that combines influences ranging from Scruggs to Sublime; from The Devil Makes Three to The Delta Blues. Vocal harmonies and versatility are staples of their craft which they’ve honed to deliver a good time sound that goes best with some whiskey.
Opener: Woody & Sunshine
This jam-grass, gypsy funk duo from the Ozark Mountains of Fayetteville, Arkansas are sure to make you smile. Sunshine’s electric banjo playing is something to write home about.

If you love reggae and the music of the Talking Heads, this show will transport you into a state of sonic nirvana. The last time they played here, it was one of the best shows in the modern history of the Crazy Horse. It’s hard to fathom the energy this eight-piece band exudes. Hearing these legendary songs reimagined through a polyphonic, Caribbean kaleidoscope makes for a euphoric experience. Leading the charge is vocalist Mystic Bowie – a truly mystical figure bursting with magnetism, positivity and inspiration. He was a member of the Tom Tom Club with former members of the Talking Heads so if anyone understands this material, it’s him.
