THE PEARLS w/ THE COUNTRY LIPS @ 9PM

The Pearls are an Americana, Alt-Country, and Western Swing. Their influences include The Band, The Eagles, George Jones, The Grateful Dead and The Everly Brothers, in addition to old Dixieland jazz and classic country. The Pearls are a vocal-driven band with songs that blend the spirit of travel and adventure with Cajun, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and country influences.

Country music gets a bad rap, and it’s mostly the fault of goody two-shoes like Keith Urban and Garth Brooks. I mean, back in the day, country was full of bad boys (and if you’ve never read George Jones’s memoir, I Lived to Tell It All, you really should—that man was an animal!). Seattle’s Country Lips sound and play more like classic country’s raucous and rowdy boys—and their live shows are becoming legendarily wild. It’s hard to stand still when eight-plus members are bringin’ the foot-stompers. Country Lips are putting the party back in the original party music. Somebody had to do it. It’s not always about tears falling in your beer.

HERITAGE @ 8PM

“Simply a group of guys who just want to play music”, is how front man Tony Verrecchia describes the group hailing from Destin, FL. It started from meager backyard gatherings with family and friends peppered with musical instruments and a few vocal melodies. Who could believe that a few house parties in the summer of 2007 would mark the beginning of something much, much larger? They decided to call the group Heritage and planted seeds of positivity & love in each song they wrote. By 2009 the group had enough original material to release their first full-length album, Natural High. With the nearly overnight success of Heritage’s debut album, it was clear that something undeniable was beginning to happen: the birth of a new sound which emphasized love and good vibrations.

80’s INVASION @ 9pm

80’s INVASION takes the music of the ’80s very seriously. This is the music we listened to on our original Sony Walkmen, the bands whose names we stenciled on our pee-chees, jeans, Nikes, and in some cases, all over town. When MTV first came around, these were the bands whose videos we watched all night at our friends’ houses, and the first concerts we went to. Some of our most memorable experiences (ahem) occurred listening to these songs. This music matters and we care enough about it to do it right.

DOWN NORTH (Seattle) DBST (Oly) @9pm

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.

“This is what dirty feels like, and it hurts so good!” –Seattle Night Outsoul

 

DBST is an impassioned and energetic neo-soul band formed in Olympia, Washington with wild electronic leanings- yet they maintain the full interplay and instrumentation of a traditional band. Centered around the fluid yet commanding vocals of song-writer and front-man Sam Pohl, the band works to construct an encapsulating and textured aura of sound; seeking to connect and resonate with every listener in the audience. The band formed loosely in 2011, cutting their teeth in small clubs in their home town and released their first full length album, Kamaliens, in 2014. After many forms and iterations, the band truly discovered their voice in 2016, when they decided to bring their act to larger venues and wider audiences. The members of DBST come from varied musical backgrounds and disciplines, lending to a unique and often category defying sound, but their common ground is what really shines through- they want to make music that MOVES people.
