Doors Open 8:00 PM
(From Texas Music Pickers.com) June 16, 2017 - Austin Meade first caught our attention with his 2014 full-length album “Chief of the Sinners”. Immediately we took notice of Meade’s strong personal relationships and rich characters throughout his music. The Austin, TX native has created a lot of buzz over the last year, and is looking to keep the momentum going with his new 5 track EP “Heartbreak Coming”. The EP is a little departure from the warm family relationships we saw in previous record. While the characters still remain rich and the stories still personal, Meade takes us down the path of heartbreak and moving on.

His unique blend of Americana, Country, and Blues also appears to be fuller, and Meade’s songwriting more mature. We can see the growth between productions, and think it indicates even better things ahead! The EP drops tomorrow (6/3) and we suggest you get your hands on it!

Moontower & Phangs
"A Tour of The Heart"
Doors Open 7:00 PM
(From All Music.com-Timothy Monger) A sleek and ambitious indie electronic pop trio based in Los Angeles, Moontower quickly earned a devoted regional following thanks to a series of quirky tracks and videos chronicling the fictional character of William Hollywood, whom they immortalized on their 2019 release Season 1: The Ballad of William Hollywood.
Jake Culver, DJ/producer Tom Carpenter, and trained flutist Devan Welsh all met while attending the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music. The trio had already been working on various projects together when they attended a show by French pop band Lemaitre, and they vowed to devote themselves to making their own form of creative indie dance music.

(From All Music.com-Paul Simpson) A solo venture of Nashville-based musician Jake Germany, Phangs writes delicate, dreamy pop songs about love and loneliness, as heard on releases like 2017's Get in My Arms.
Based in Nashville, Germany led Southern rockers Cardboard Kids while in college, then joined alternative CCM band Relient K, appearing on their 2016 album Air for Free. The same year, Germany debuted his solo project, Phangs, with the single "Cul de Sac." This led to the 2017 release of Phangs' first EP, Get in My Arms, which included the single "Always Been U" (featuring R.LUM.R). Read more @All Music.com (Click Here)

On The White Oak Lawn
(From All Music.com-Johnny Loftus) Employing a self-described amalgam of "folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk," Southern California's Slightly Stoopid originated in the 1990s as a classic SoCal skatepunk crew before transitioning into cannabis-fueled purveyors of carefree, jam-centric good times with the release of 2003's Everything You Need.
