Armed with old bastardized mid-century guitars, hand-me-down fiddles and banjos, home-made contraptions with just enough tension on a string to be considered an instrument and any random percussive item he can get his hands or feet on, Lincoln Durham is a roots-rock revivalist with a heavy amped edge, preaching the gospel of some new kind of depraved music. With driving guttural beats backboning various growling stringed instruments Lincoln gives birth to a sound that transcends genres with his dark, poetic and raw writing style telling tales that E.A. Poe would have been proud of. Lincoln’s musical odyssey began in the little Texas town of Itasca when his grandpa, Charlie, and dad, Ed, put a fiddle in his hands at age 4. He would grow into an accomplished fiddle player around Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, winning the Texas State Youth Fiddle Championship at age 10. Lincoln afterward followed the path so many musicians have, finding his vice in the seductive, siren-like callings of the electric guitar. Or, in Lincoln’s case, the acoustic slide guitar with gnarly pickups haphazardly screwed into it. Lincoln’s true biography is in his live show. The passion in his sweat drenched, electrifyingly mesmerizing one-man-band show draws you in to feel every scar and drop of blood in his painfully intimate lyrics. It takes something beautifully “off” to get on stage with just hands and feet for a band, driven by a howling voice, and morbidly preach a music that harkens back to the old blues masters, Son House and Fred McDowell, infused with the edge and angst of Tom Waits and Nick Cave.

June 1994 we launched High Temperature. A fat juicy hour from a 275 minutes long record setting concert that literally knocked the audience of it’s dancing feet at 4AM., as Doc-O-zone announced. Doc-O-zone, who was so overwhelmed by the musical capacity of Guy Forsyth when he saw him in a hot smoky venue in Austin, Texas, that he started a record label to make his music publicized. Over the years Guy Forsyth developed to a great artist. Performer of most self-made compositions, singer, guitarist, ukelele, harmonica player, musical saw, name it and he will amaze you. Audiences love Guy. He is a dynamic personality on record, but it is on stage that the thruth comes out: Guy lives to play - the thrill is in the show. His spectacular live shows are meanwhile well known in big parts of Europe, next to, of course, the USA. In 2005 he started his own record label Small and Nimble Records. June 2011 Doc-O-zone died and left the tapes of the recordings at “Metropool” Hengelo in 1993 to Guy. This led to a new partnership between Lizard Discs and Small and Nimble Records from which you have part of the result in your hands. Red Dress, High Temperature part 2, previously unreleased music of the recordings in 1993, another fat hour of the fizzy show. Unbelievable how the quality sustained during the years. You hear the audience react on the everlasting, uplifting music by Guy Forsyth. You feel the energy splashes of the CD. That’s what you get when you visit a show. Once you have seen him on stage you can’t resist coming back.

Beginning with 4-time Grammy-Award winning and 17 GMA-Dove Award winning group DC Talk, he forged new territory by expanding the borders of what Christian music could sound like and helped exponentially grow the sales and awareness of Christian music. During the 2000’s, Kevin explored new musical directions releasing several highly-acclaimed solo albums that ranged in styles from alternative rock and spoken word to pop and rootsy gospel. Along the way, the ever-creative Kevin Max wrote books of poetry, a novel, acted in films, and toured the world which included residencies in LA and Las Vegas. In 2012, Kevin joined his long-time friends in the band Audio Adrenaline as their new lead singer. Their album “Kings & Queens” was highly successful and garnered a massive hit radio single of the same name. Kevin’s return to the CCM community was welcomed with amazing enthusiasm as evidenced not only by success in sales and radio, but by playing almost 200 shows in support of the album. Fans and industry gatekeepers were ecstatic to once again hear the incomparable ‘voice’ of Kevin Max on tour and on the radio. Of his Audio Adrenaline experience, Kevin said, "The past two years have been an epic pursuit of music, missions and bringing hope to the ‘least of these.’ Being zoomed in close to Mark Stuart’s vision with Hands and Feet, and seeing first hand the work that was being done in Jacmel, Haiti, has given me a broader picture of what a rock-and-roll band could accomplish for the kingdom. It was beyond a joy to film a video in Haiti, and see the single ‘Kings and Queens’ capture a small glimpse into the lives of these beautiful children. It has been an honor to create an album with Mark and a handful of like-minded musicians, and tour this album for the last couple of years. Our friendships and bonds have strengthened beyond music, and the door that God opened for me to step through became a much bigger portal to finding myself. I am learning the difference between performing for God and serving Him through the gift of music." Currently, Kevin is pursuing a renewed solo artist path without Audio Adrenaline as they are moving in a different creative direction. He will release a new album entitled “Broken Temples” on Motion Records in February 2015 working with producers Rob Hawkins, Josh Silverberg, & others. The first single, “Light Me Up” will hit radio in August with plans for touring in the fall and Spring 2015. Regarding this new season Kevin says, "I have spent the last two years being refined and restored. I feel revitalized. I am excited about what is around the corner for my family, friends and the music that God continues to gift us with. I have no desire to run from Nashville. I have no desire to run from what I have continued to pursue in the Christian Arts. If anything, I feel that these last two years have given me the tools and desire to make the best art I can within this industry. One of the first dc Talk monikers was ‘if it’s Christian, it ought to be better.’ That is my new goal and again more than ever, a slogan in my life. I, Kevin Max, promise to dive deep into music, poetry, stories and imagination, but most of all into the web of wonderful relationships and people that God has brought into my life on this amazing journey of the soul.”

Born in San Jose, California in 1955, Tommy Castro first picked up a guitar at age 10. He came under the spell of Eric Clapton, Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield and other blues rock players early on. As he got older, Castro moved forward by investigating the past, falling in love with the blues guitar work of Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Elmore James and singers like Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. By his late 20s he was playing in a variety of San Francisco-area blues and soul bands. Castro joined Warner Brothers artists The Dynatones in the late 1980s. The much-loved band had a huge fan base and toured the U.S. constantly. He honed his chops with the group on the road for two years, performing live all across the country and sharing stages with major artists like Carla Thomas and Albert King. He formed The Tommy Castro Band in 1991 and won the Bay Area Music Award for Best Club Band in both 1993 and 1994. With his local fan base quickly expanding, he released his debut album in 1996 on Blind Pig. He began touring nationally, picking up new fans everywhere he went. The album won the 1997 Bay Area Music Award for Outstanding Blues Album, and Castro also took the award for Outstanding Blues Musician that same year.

On the eve of the release of his third solo album, Rich Robinson, best known as the guitarist, songwriter, and founder of The Black Crowes, stands ready to complete the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. The Ceaseless Sight, an album that represents the full maturation of Rich as a songwriter, a vocalist, and a solo artist. Robinson already has two solo studio albums to his credit, the first, Paper, came in 2004 while his follow-up, Through a Crooked Sun, arrived in 2011. “I've always approached writing songs for an album as part of a larger work,” says Robinson. “The Ceaseless Sight as a whole is one piece and how it fits into my whole body of work is the other. My new record follows the path of my musical journey I've been on for 25 years. I feel a strong connection to where I've been musically, but more importantly where I'm going." Robinson was born in 1969 and formed the The Black Crowes with his older brother Chris in Atlanta in the 1980’s. At the age of 17, Robinson began writing the music for the songs that would land on the band’s 1990 debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, which sold 7 million copies. Over the next 10 years, Rich’s songwriting evolved into the musical engine that powered the band to sales of more than 25 million albums. Before taking a hiatus in 2001, the Crowes catalog included classics like The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, Amorica, By Your Side, and Live at the Greek: Excess All Areas, a double album that captured the teaming of Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes for performances of Led Zeppelin, Crowes and blues and rock standards.

This is his first headline appearance at Sam’s Burger Joint.


Although his smooth and intimate vocal style is often favorably compared to noted jazz vocalist Johnny Hartman or such legendary pop singers as Frank Sinatra, Matt Monro and Tony Bennett, he has steadfastly followed his own musical path, successfully finding a unique voice in a highly competitive industry.  


Jim Beal, former music writer for the San Antonio Express-News, once described Ken this way: “When it comes to crooning in the classic jazz/pop tradition, Ken Slavin has no peers.”

Lucas Jack


Lucas Jack began his songwriting and performance career crafting songs for any and all family occasions as a small boy, a passion he carried as a teenager to the bars, hotel lobbies, and social events of his hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan – anywhere with an unguarded piano. This creative impulse was fostered throughout his twenties via collaboration with a series of bands while working as an attorney in Chicago. 


Poor J Brown


Music rooted from the front porch soul of East Texas to the back porch roots music of the Texas Hill Country. From Southern Louisiana to the blues of New York and Chicago, all of these influences come together to create a sound that is strikingly original yet familiar. Leon Waddy plays the keys and writes the songs. Myles Smith adds vocals with soul.

Over three decades ago, along with Joe Ely, Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore founded The Flatlanders, a local term for folks who live in the kind of landscape southwest Texas has to spare. More of a song-swap than a commercial endeavor, the band’s sole recording project in 1973—released only in the short-lived 8-track format—was barely distributed. It has since been recognized as a landmark in progressive, alternative country music. The record was re-issued by Rounder in 1991 under the title More a Legend Than a Band.

Whether you call it alt-country, Americana, or roots rock, one thing is for certain: Their music is a fresh voice that borrows from many forms of the American songbook. 25-year old songwriter and band leader, BJ Barham, brings songs to the five other band mates who breathe life into a performance that is equal parts Springsteen-esque rock bravado, old-school country lyrical heartbreak, and indie-rock introspection. From the college coeds to tattooed bikers and hipsters, the band has demonstrated their ability to cross boundaries. With 4 years, 4 albums, and over 600 shows under their belts, American Aquarium is the continuance of the road warrior meets studio craftsman ethic that has long been a part of the rock & roll and country music cultures. They are a band and crew that spend their lives between a van with no air-conditioning and stages all across the country. Their collaboration forms a wholly new and polished version of what Americana might start to look like in the years to come.

At a very young age Will’s interest in all things sonic started him down the road to a career in Music. His introduction to music came through his family: the early influence of Jimi Hendrix from his brothers, Bluegrass, Folk and Mountain music from both his parents, and boogie woogie from his grandmother. His love for the Blues and American Roots Music began to blossom after moving to Texas at the young age of 5. His uncle gave him a copy of "The Vaughan Brothers: Family Style" and he was hooked. He got his first SRV album shortly after, and was off into the world of Blues. He began digging deeper and deeper for the nastiest, grooviest, and raunchy sounds he could find and focused his list of influences to include Albert King, Howlin' Wolf, Hound Dog Taylor, Elmore James, Lightnin' Hopkins, Lightnin' Slim, Albert Collins, Otis Rush, Little Walter, Willie Dixon, and the list GOES ON!! He sat in with bands from the time he was 11 years old and began meeting and playing with musicians in the San Antonio Blues scene. He landed a weekly Friday night gig while in the 7th grade, and 3 or 4 years later landed another weekly gig and began refining his chops. During his senior year of high school, the band got the opportunity to open for and back up the great Stephen Stills in Austin, TX. From there he moved on to other inspiring moments in music, opening for Lynard Skynard, Three Dog Night, and quite a few other notable acts. After graduating from school he co-formed his own group in the style of Classic Country and Rock! The band played legendary Texas venues such as Luckenbach, TX and Gruene Hall. After that Will began playing with anyone and everyone and opened solo for greats such as Dick Dale. When he was 22, he traveled to France to play with "Mitch Webb & The Swindles” at the Crappone Country Rendezvous Festival. It was there he met the Great-Nephew of Texas Country Legend Ernest Tubb. He joined the band and began touring the USA and Europe with Lucky Tubb and the Modern Day Troubadours.

Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives, its celebrations and despairs, landmines and blindsides and upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search for ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty. Sometimes it takes the form of barely contained rage, the rock of punk amid kneeled feedback; sometimes it caresses and soothes, a whispery harmony riding the air of a nightclub room, removed from amplification, within the audience.

His rise has been gradual, a steady incline rather than a quick ascendance, but it has deepened and burnished his music, made it closer to the bone, where it begins to break, deepening his insight and his ability to find that insight in performance. His tireless touring, and dogged determination to place one album after another, has taken him through many musical scenes, remaining the same persona within each, of an artist who doesn’t settle for the easy way out.

“You just do your good work, and people care,” Alejandro says over the phone beginning a promotional tour for his work, Street Songs of Love, his tenth solo album.

Years later, Joe, Rudy and George Horner met at Woodlawn Elementary School. Sometime in 1965 Lenny met Joe surfing at Port A. 1966 saw the collision of chaos at Jefferson High School with Lenny, Joe, Bart, Frank, George and Rudy. The common threads of Beatles and Stones and Rock N Roll, riding the bus downtown to Joskes and The Texas Theater, Jefferson Village and Silvey Music Store, driving around and countless other things forged an unbreakable bond. High School parties at various places brought forth guitars, drums and mayhem. In the seventies with some in and out of college and in and out of the army there became a need of creating music.

John Mark McMillan is something of an anomaly. From the very beginning of his career, nearly a decade ago, his music has defied easy categorization. A singer-songwriter as interested in musical exploration as lyrical exploration, McMillan carved his own path from the outset—with an ear for melody with a poet’s eye for metaphor—no topic was off-limits: death and love; isolation and exultation; restlessness and silence. And always consistent—an ongoing dialogue with God, ever-wrestling for some kind of blessing and usually at volumes most suited for rock clubs. Now ten long years in, McMillan released Borderland, his fourth studio album and arguably his finest, on March 4, 2014. Borderland is indeed something rare—the sound of an artist staking a claim in the no-man’s land of contemporary life, intent on finding heaven there. Make no mistake, Borderland is the musical statement of a songwriter at the height of his powers; one who has made a career of rejecting easy categorization and defying expectations, and this album is certainly no different.

Nothing Eric has to say sounds like it was said by someone else first. His songs deal with ramshackle existences, the tenuous nature of life, love and fame, depression, injustice, pain, depravity and death, always delivered with indefatigable optimism. Nothing Eric has to say sounds like it was said by someone else first. His songs deal with ramshackle existences, the tenuous nature of life, love and fame, depression, injustice, pain, depravity and death, always delivered with indefatigable optimism. Eric began his recording life on Stiff Records in 1977 with his enduring hit Whole Wide World when he was little more than an ex-teenage art student. Eventually he sidestepped the mechanics of stardom to become Britain’s biggest underground household name, much loved and much misunderstood. He lives in bohemian splendour in upstate New York in what he describes as a budget pop star home where he continues to record other-worldly pop records. He signed to Fire Records in 2014. A new album is scheduled for November. Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realised he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, squalls of feedback, lilting enchantment, bizarre stories and backchat. Some people can’t take it. Thirty seven years of touring have left him in good shape. He’s coming to town.

BOOTH DOES NOT INCLUDE ADMISSION---LIMITED SEATED SHOW---$15 AT THE DOOR---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.

The title track of Marcia Ball's new album, The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man, is an irresistible tale of true love at the traveling carnival. It's a story that nobody but Ball could spin, filled with vivid details, universal truths, and a rambunctious sense of fun and desire. With raucous horns punctuating Ball's legendary piano pounding and emotional, melodic vocals, the song kicks off a CD of eleven dazzling originals and one stirring cover. The release mixes Ball's Gulf Coast blues, New Orleans R&B, swampy Louisiana ballads, and jumping, Tex-Mex flavored zydeco into a one-of-a-kind musical gumbo, a sound she has been perfecting over the course of her legendary career. The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised musical storyteller has earned worldwide fame for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she strolls onto the stage. Her groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music fans all over the world. In 2010, she was inducted into the Gulf Coast Music Hall Of Fame and in 2012 into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. She's received a total of six Living Blues Awards and nine Blues Music Awards (and has a whopping 42 nominations). She's received five Grammy Award nominations, including for four of her five previous Alligator albums. Always a songwriter of renown, Ball delved deeper into songwriting than she ever had in her career with her Grammy-nominated 2011 Alligator release, Roadside Attractions, creating one of her best and most personal albums.

Soul Track Mind has an original sound that blends soul, funk, and rock with elements of R&B, blues, and jazz, and a message of inspiration in the relentless pursuit of dreams. The project began in 2008 when frontman Donovan Keith moved from Indiana to Austin, Texas, intent on starting a band rooted in the soul music he grew up listening to. Having never even been in a band, let alone led one, Donovan assembled STM's initial lineup and logged an 18-month weekly residency at a down-home eastside juke joint before branching out to venues throughout Central Texas and the U.S. Over time, STM developed the one-of-a-kind, dance-infused stage show now loved by fans and acknowledged by reviewers across the country. Performer Magazine asserted, “Aside from showcasing an impressive vocal range and blues-soaked sound, Keith can engage an audience with his unbridled enthusiasm and dance moves.”

The night we played Bonnaroo a couple years ago, I sat with my younger brother Sam, my wife Ellie, and a few other dear friends, reclining in plastic lawn chairs in the midnight Tennessee heat outside our tour bus, drinking wine and listening to music. After a decade of touring, (over 1700 shows) and making records, it’s easy to forget the magic of music. We took turns introducing each other to new bands and artists, talking about our lives, our dreams, our failures. Music has always had a medicinal quality to me, and that’s why I started writing songs and touring in the first place. I first needed the medicine when I was seventeen. I lost a brother that summer, 1999. He was a great kid, lived life from the view of a wheelchair, and was gone without warning a few days before his 14th birthday. I took lots of medicine, from Radiohead and Bob Dylan, from Pearl Jam and Otis Redding, from Bob Marley to the Temptations, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to Rage Against the Machine. I played the guitar in my bedroom, learned songs I loved, sang along in my car alone or with a friend. A year later I went to college in Knoxville and I became an addict. I was introduced to the medicine of Patty Griffin, Whiskeytown, Springsteen, Tom Waits, the Jayhawks, Wilco, Beck and hundreds more that could fill pages. I went and saw their shows and played their records over and over and over. The honesty, the intellect, the stories, the raw emotion, the rhythm, the vulnerability; it all made me feel like I was not alone. Music was a way of saying, “me too,” a way of finding hope and meaning in the sorrow and confusion of life.

Heartless Bastards have spent the past decade in motion, boldly pushing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll into new shapes over four acclaimed albums and nearly non-stop roadwork. Now, with RESTLESS ONES, the band sets out once again, blazing a path to a place of shifting moods, seasoned songcraft, and unbridled spontaneity. Heartless Bastards’ fifth studio recording and follow-up to 2012’s breakthrough ARROW, the album finds singer/songwriter Erika Wennerstrom exploring as-yet-unvisited avenues of sound and sensation, her bravery and ambition readily apparent in the emotional timbre and the sheer physicality of her songs. “Wind Up Bird” and “Into The Light” are straightforward yet stunningly sophisticated, shot through with layered guitars, atmospheric harmonies, hints of synth, and a powerhouse rhythm section adept at both subtle swing and heavy horsepower. Wennerstrom’s spellbinding vocals are of course front and center, her one-of-a-kind voice as primal, cathartic, and indefinable as ever. “We took a lot of chances,” Wennerstrom says, “taking the sounds in different directions in order to grow. I don't ever want to make the same album twice.” Now based in Austin, the band’s current incarnation – that is, guitarist Mark Nathan, bassist Jesse Ebaugh, and drummer Dave Colvin – united in 2009, touring Heartless Bastards’ acclaimed third album, THE MOUNTAIN, before hitting the studio to record ARROW.
