Event Information

Les Hay Babies sont la régénération de leur culture acadienne ; elles nous font voyager avec leurs chansons parsemées des vieux mots et d’images actuelles. Les trois jeunes femmes, venant des trois coins du Nouveau-Brunswick, vous feront ressentir la familiarité et la chaleur de leurs petits coins de pays. Elles tissent la prose entre les cowboys et les indiens en n’utilisant qu'une guitare, un banjo, un ukulélé et leurs harmonies.

SKYROCKET! is perhaps the most wickedly original party band to emerge from any music scene, let alone a city like Austin where original music rules. Two things make SKYROCKET! stand out: 1) The players. All of them are recording artists in their own right. Maybe you've seen them before, on tour, on TV, or performing around Austin. 2) The songs. It all started when this handful of the city's most successful and well-loved songwriters discovered a common passion for '70s "solid-gold" music: Disco, glam rock, soft rock and soul one-hit wonders. One forgotten hit led to another, then the '70s led to the '80s, and the song list grew, cherry-picked for the ones most likely to get screams of sudden recognition from the audience. Calling themselves The K-TEL Hit Machine, They caught on quickly as one of the freshest, funnest dance bands around. By the end of 2005, they had even charmed city's impossible-to-charm music critics at the Austin Chronicle's holiday bash, and the band's popularity SKYROCKETed from there, hence the name change.

FAME. The word means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But to the ten members of The Nightowls, it means only one thing: soul. Located in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, FAME Studios achieved an almost mythical status in the 60's and 70's as the host of unforgettable sessions by Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, The Staple Singers, Percy Sledge, Little Richard, The Allman Brothers, and countless others. It was the birthplace of the Muscle Shoals Sound and home to The Swampers, the unparalleled rhythm section that laid down the grooves for an incredible number of timeless classics and influenced a myriad more. For a southern soul band like The Nightowls, it was Mecca. "Most of us grew up on our parent's record collections, listening to classic soul and Motown," says Ryan Harkrider, who founded The Nightowls in Austin, Texas. "The music that came out of FAME has always been familiar to us and ingrained in who we are. Since day one, we called our trip to record there a pilgrimage."

San Antonio indie-soul ensemble, fishermen, will perform for their highly anticipated first official EP release at Sam's Burger Joint on September 6 with some help from local heavy hitters, The Last Nighters and up-and-coming starlets, Octahedron.  Despite only releasing five songs to date, the group has managed to garner the respect and attention of the local and regional music community.  Blending contemporary indie aesthetic with classic soul and rock, fishermen boast both lofty and eclectic influences, drawing from timeless giants like Radiohead, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and Marvin Gaye.  They have been described as “Highly inventive and dreamy” by Hector Saldana of The San Antonio Express-News and were referred to as “one of SA’s best live sets” by Matthew Steib of the San Antonio Current.  The release will include the group’s dual EPs titled Future Wives and Smart Kids led by their two singles, “Fire Me Up” and “All My Love.”

Growing up in the coffee houses of the Boston folk scene, Sean watched his parents playing songs written by Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, David Wilcox, Shawn Colvin, Harry Chapin, CSNY, James Taylor and others of the like. Unknown to himself or his parents, Sean was soaking it all in and locking it away somewhere inside. Now, an artist in his own right, Sean travels the states performing his own style of music that he describes as “Lyric Driven Roots Rock with Soul.” A live Sean McConnell show is truly a dynamic experience. One moment reckless rock, and the next an intimate acoustic pin drop moment. While most of his performances these days are backed by his four piece band, you can sometimes find him by himself on a stool with a guitar getting back to the basics. “In whatever case”, McConnell says, “It’s all about the song. That never changes. It always starts with an acoustic guitar and a notepad. The lyrics are the point. The story is central.” These days, Sean finds a lot of his time spent touring Texas where he has truly been adopted into the “Red Dirt” scene. He is a former winner of the “Emerging Artist” award from Lone Star Music Awards.

The O's


We started our group in the summer of 2008, and after having known each other through all of our other groups (Polyphonic Spree, Young Heart Attack, Slick 57, Rose County Fair, Hi-Fi Drowning, etc), it was an easy upstart and took no time jumping in head first. We both had songs that we felt needed to be played but no band to use as an outlet. Three months later, we entered the recording studio and recorded an EP which ended up being half of our first album “We Are The O’s” (2009 Idol Records). 


Radio Birds


To see and hear them now, you might never believe that a few short years ago Radio Birds had a completely different lineup, look, and sound. In early 2013, rising united from their earlier musical experiences, these four young men decided to take a risk and start completely over with a new name and sound. They quickly worked up a batch of new songs, and by that summer they had recorded a successful EP and had begun playing extensively, even winning the 2013 Masquerade Musicians Showcase in Atlanta, GA. Within a year of their rechristening, they were booked for The Rock Boat 2014 (and 15!), were featured in a major motion picture (Jason Momoa's Road to Paloma), played SXSW, and attracted the services of indie Atlanta label Brash Music.

It happened during an ordinary refueling stop for the Dirty River Boys, the band on its way from Austin to Tulsa to kick off a six-date run. The van pulled up at a gas station and its occupants scattered, with Colton James hopping on his skateboard and heading over to a grocery store for a rotisserie chicken. But the board hit an oil patch and went flying, and the bassist found himself not just down, but possibly out. “I see him at the van and he’s got a bone about to pop out of his shoulder, and our tour manager is on the phone,” recalls drummer Travis Stearns. So the band retreated to Austin, where an ER doc told James he had a shattered collarbone and would need surgery. In the meantime, they outfitted him with a sling. For a moment the band contemplated scratching its upcoming six-date run, because for a stand-up bassist, a collarbone tends to be necessary equipment. “Every time I lifted my arms to play the bass I could just feel the bones crunching on each other,” he says. But he didn’t want to force his bandmates to cancel shows. Why don’t I play the electric bass instead, he wondered, while sitting in a chair? Wouldn’t that work? The band agreed, and they were off again. “That was a long bumpy drive with a broken collarbone,” James wryly recalls. “Didn’t even stop to get any medication on the way—that was a bad idea. “ But that’s the Dirty River Boys ethos. Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances, and winning over a loyal audience show-by-show, it takes a lot more than a few broken bones to stop them.
