Andy ShaufFew artists are storytellers as deft and disarmingly observational as Andy Shauf. The Toronto-based, Saskatchewan-raised musicians songs unfold like short fiction: theyre densely layered with colorful characters and a rich emotional depth. On his new album, The Neon Skyline on ANTI- Records, he sets a familiar scene of inviting a friend for beers on the opening title track: I said, Come to the Skyline, Ill be washing my sins away. He just laughed, said Ill be late, you know how I can be. The LPs 11 interconnected tracks follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighborhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up. While its overarching narrative is riveting, the real thrill of the album comes from how Shauf finds the humanity and humor in a typical night out and the ashes of a past relationship.

A great artist captures the feeling of an era. When Peter Harper wrote and recorded his new album Survive, there was no global pandemic, nor social unrest, yet, somehow his message of Hope, Strength, Love, and Survival predicted this moment and will go on to help guide us all through it. Peter is the youngest of the three Harper brothers. With music and artistic expression in his DNA, Peter chose the art of sculpture to express his creativity. As a renowned sculptor his pieces don the collections of stars like Woody Harrelson, Henry Rollins, Laura Dern, Meg Ryan, Danny DeVito, Maya Angelou, Danny Trejo, DJ Numark, George Clinton and many more.On the track Broken Sound Harper utilizes his signature Tenor Guitar combined with a break beat and horn section to create a head nodding groove loaded with lyrics that address social injustice, I wont be scattered like some ashes that have grown cold. And I wont be battered like some slave that has been sold.After touring Europe for several years Peter landed a record deal with European label Space Party which is owned and operated by Herv Cocto who is responsible for the European promotion success of smash hits like Luis Fonsis Despacito and Alice Mertons No Roots.Moshe Vilozny w/David HolodiloffMoshe Vilozny was born in Portland OR and raised in Santa Cruz CA; spending summers in Israel and winters throughout Latin America.

Little Hurricane returns to Moes! Tone and CC bring their own brand of high-energy, dirty blues rock to the main stage.Tickets purchased for the June 26th Tone Catalano solo show will be honored. Little HurricaneTheres so much fire and spit spewing out of Little Hurricane songs that youre fairly sure that theyve ticked off the devil and theyre on the wrong list. This gritty 21st century blues-rock duo out of San Diego,California, formed when guitarist and vocalist Anthony Tone Catalano answered a Craigslist ad posted by drummer Celeste CCSpina. They shared a common interest in both the blues and vintage musical equipment and their ragged, passionate sound evolved almost instantly. After extensive touring in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and 3 studio records, the band took some time off to give birth to their baby boy. In 2019 the pair returned to stage withLove Luck which was their third album to reach the Billboard Charts, and supported by a tour of Germany and the US. 2020 has brought the duo off the road and into their studio once again, where they are streaming live concerts and continuing to write and record.Smith & TegioOpening the show is local duo Smith s amalgam of outlaw country and folk music was born. Its the inevitable result of a bad case of wanderlust from a head full of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings, and a heart full of Townes Van Zandt and Blaze Foley that doesnt know whether to laugh or cry. Still, they do not fit neatly into either genre, but instead have created their own blend of the two: Outlaw folk. Smith s outlaw country and folk influences.

(Four string banjo, lap steel guitar, upright bass, guitar and drums) with country tinged songs injected with healthy amounts of soulfulness and indie rock weirdness, you just might be tricked into dancing along to Zachary Handls dark poetic lyrics.
Southern Culture On The Skids has been consistently recording and touring around the world since its inception in 1983, when Rick Miller was a grad student at UNC-Chapel Hill. The current lineup (Dave Hartman drums; Mary Huff bass and vocals; Rick Miller guitar and vocals) has been playing together for over 30 years. The bands musical journey has taken them from all-night NC house parties to late night network talk shows, and from performing at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan to rockin out for the inmates at NC Correctional Facilities. Their music has been featured in movies and TV, and used to sell everything from diamonds to pork sausage, and their legendary live shows are a testament to the therapeutic powers of foot-stomping, butt-shaking rock and roll.SCOTS DIY roots go all the way back to the days of making cassette demos in the dirt floor basement of the original band house. It was a beat down house we found in the woods, covered in kudzu vines, Rick recalls. We hunkered down there and came up with the sound and ideas weve been refining and tweaking ever since; a blue plate special of musical genres, all mixed together to give up new flavors and combinations.
