Down North

Saturday, May 30 at 9:30pm

Down North masterfully mixes underground rock and party-fueling soul, regularly lifting up audiences that have been craving new soul sounds from the city that gave the world Wheedle’s Groove and Jimi Hendrix.

Down North’s upcoming new line-up debut will still feature the bold and sensual talents of lead vocalist/dancer Anthony “RenaGade” Briscoe, whose North Carolina-bred approach to making fans swoon has no equal in the Pacific NW. Raised on Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke, Anthony is as stylish and emotional as Prince in his vocal expressions. Co-leader Brandon Storms is an extremely versatile bassist-guitarist who writes much of the music and taps into his love for everything from Hendrix to James Jamerson in making tunes both infectious and substantial.

Frankie Boots & The County Line

Friday, June 12, at 9:30pm

Frankie Boots And The County Line are a folk rock/Americana band roaring out of the San Francisco Bay Area with a penchant for painting vivid images of late nights, lost love, and the grittier side of life. Towards the end of the last decade Frank gave up a promising career in the illustrious world of bartending to pursue a life of even longer nights and shorter tempers in the music industry. The cosmos, in their infinite wisdom, soon sent him The County Line and their visceral sound sprung from a primordial soup of horns, pedal steel guitar, banjo, mandolin, keys, guitars, bass, and drums. Whether it be country, rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, or any other true form of great American music, the band throws it all into the recipe for a dish that’s always served hot. Frankie Boots And The County Line’s captivating live performances keep a crowd jumping and their magnetic songs earned them the North Bay Bohemian’s award for best Country/Americana band in the Bay Area for 2013.

The Twangshifters

Saturday, June 27 at 9:30pm

Emerging from the garages of Portland, OR, The Twangshifters busted down the doors of the Rock ‘N’ Roll/ Rockabilly/Roots/ Blues scene in 2010 and continue to set the Rose City & Pacific Northwest on fire. There is NO RAIN on this parade!

"Beyond giving the rockabilly kids a healthy dose of what they love, the Twangshifters' stage appeal consists of melding the best licks from the past with flashy production packaging" - Curt Shulz, Oregonian

Big Twang Theory The Twangshifters are one of those bands you stumble across one night on a bender and never forget. Playing stripped down, no-nonsense rockabilly, blues and rock ’n’ roll, they’re the love children of Carl Perkins and Patsy Cline, and plan to celebrate the release of their smokin’ hot debut CD at a jam replete with burlesque dancers (including national champ Holly Dai) and lots of slicked-back hair types. This is not a party for timid souls or indifferent hipsters, so leave the attitude at home and bring a pack of filterless ciggies for the breaks in between. - Rob Cullivan, The Portland Tribune
