Whiskerman

9:00 pm21:00

Whiskerman

Whether entranced in a ballad or clawing out some frenzied rock and roll, Whiskerman is seeking the heart of the matter. Lush instrumentation combined with front man Graham Patzner's profound lyricism and unflinching delivery culminate in a sound that is soulful, mythical, and raw. Patzner’s voice, both smokey and soaring, leads a passionate live show as the band’s classic rock sound seamlessly cascades through realms of bluesy devotion, psychedelic melancholy, and twangy celebration. Whiskerman's shows tend to set spells, either sweeping the audience up in revelation, or dropping them into knee-slapping frenzy. Joining Patzner (vocals, guitar, violin and piano), is Will Lawrence (bass and mandolin), and Charles Lloyd (guitar and sitar), Dan Schwartz (drums), and Trevor Bahnson (guitar).

Monte Xannic

In a style described as Psychedelic Billy Joel, Monte Xannic is a rock band that aims to bring sheer honesty and straightforward delivery back to rock while paying homage to the past but not living in it. Monte Xannic began as a creative outlet for the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bryan Dixon, who had been a member of Softsilence and afterwards a Nashville songwriter. He needed an escape from the plastic expectations of his label at the time. After recording a home demo of “We Are Never Alone”, a track steeped in anti class warfare and pro marijuana use, he brought the song to his label and the conservative bosses at the company quickly dropped him upon listening. With Nashville in his rearview, he hoped to find a place for his songs that would be more accepting and made the move to LA. With Monte Xannic, Dixon built a kind of creative free-for-all for himself, allowing him to be more lyrical about social issues, drug experimentation and his own spirituality. In June 2015, Monte Xannic perfomed the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

Skin & Bones w/ Jeff Uzzel

Skin & Bones - Taylor Borsuk on guitar, vocals, and suitcase drums with Peter Blackwelder on violin. With roots in Venice Beach and soul from Tennessee, the bluesy duo defined themselves playing on the salty streets of the boardwalk and continue to grow as musicians as they travel the country. Their vagabond ambitions have led them to perform up and down the coasts of the United States, and even as far as the streets of Germany. Their authentic twang bites like a stiff shot of Southern Comfort and is just as intoxicating. Taylor’s nostalgic voice brings a sense of Americana spirit to accompany Peter’s impassioned string-work. With musical influences such as Elliott Smith, Mason Jennings, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, Shakey Graves, and Robert Johnson, there’s no way Skin and Bones will disappoint!

Jeff Uzzel - One-man-band, electric dream folk singer-songwriter, live looping wizard. Weaving wide sonic landscapes with haunting melodic hooks and poetic lyrics.
