Front Country


An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was never going to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco’s Mission District and rehearsing in the East Bay, they learned to play roots music their own way, with the tools they had on hand. A mandolinist with a degree in composition and classical guitar. A guitarist trained in rock and world music. A bassist equally versed in jazz and bluegrass. A violinist with technique that could seamlessly hop between honky-tonk and electropop. A female lead singer with grit and soul who was also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. In a wood-paneled country dive bar in the shadow of the San Francisco skyline, Front Country forged a sound hellbent on merging the musical past with the future.

Joe Pug


The rise of Joe Pug, who lives in Austin, Texas, these days, has been as improbable as it has been impressive. After dropping out of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and taking on work as a carpenter in Chicago, he got his musical start by providing CDs for his fans to pass along to their friends. The unconventional method paid off, as thousands of requests poured in, leading to a string of sold-out shows and a record deal with Nashville indie Lightning Rod Records. He released two EPs and the albums "The Messenger" (2010) and "The Great Despiser" (2012) to wide acclaim. His latest album, "Windfall," was released in March 2015. Though he collected plenty of the requisite comparisons to early Springsteen and Dylan over his young career, on this album it's easier to hear the sway of more contemporary influences such as Josh Ritter, Ryan Adams and M. Ward.

Acoustic, Americana/Roots, Blues, Folk, Live Music in Bar/Club, Country

The pair of roots music legends have been friends for 30 years, but only in 2017 did the Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore first hit the highway together to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences in an intimate acoustic environment. Though Texas-born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard-rocking rhythm and blues band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly the same. Audiences will original compositions from the two as well as songs from a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles - everything from old jug band numbers to Merle Haggard and Sam Cooke, to the Young Bloods.

Shonen Knife


Shonen Knife, when written in Japanese, transliterates as "Shonen Naifu," literally “Boy Knife,” is an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock acts, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs expressing infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. And more than three decades later, founding member and principal songwriter Naoko is still delivering; their latest album, 2014's "Overdrive," is a nod to '70s hard rock.


• Sun 9/30/18 at - 8:00 PM

• Thu 10/4/18 at - 9:00 PM

Too Many Zooz


With the snowballing trend towards electronic instrumentation in music, it's easy to forget where it all first started: on street corners with real instruments, playing for tips, that is until you've heard Too Many Zooz. One part New Orleans Jazz, one part Caribbean Calypso and two parts fun, Too Many Zooz is a three-piece "brass house" band comprised of Matt Doe, Leo P, and King of Sludge. The group found their voice playing for change on New York's subway platforms, honing extremely danceable rhythms and melodies.


• Fri 10/5/18 at - 9:00 PM
