Noah and the Whale is backing its third album, "Last Night on Earth," a title that is a nod toward Charles Bukowski's poetry collection "The Last Night of the Earth." The band's first collection since 2009 features 10 new tracks, including the infectiously melodic first single "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N." "Last Night on Earth" peaked at No. 8 on the U.K. Albums Chart. 

"Last Night on Earth" was co-produced by lead singer Charlie Fink and Jason Lader (Julian Casablancas, The Mars Volta) in Los Angeles. The album features backing vocals by Jen Turner from Here We Go Magic and gospel vocals by the legendary Waters Sisters, who provided backing vocals for Michael Jackson's hit "Wanna Be Starting Something." Elsewhere, the record features Adam MacDougall of The Black Crowes on Moog and Rhodes, and legendary percussionist Lenny Castro.

DOORS: 7PM   SHOW 9PM  ~ Tickets: $15 Advance  $15 At the door.

Ben Sollee wants you to experience all the beauty and banality that life has to offer. It’s a serious request, and his enthusiasm is genuine. Armed with a cello, Sollee is canvassing the country, sometimes by bicycle, imploring folks to rediscover the connections between music, art, film, dance, their community, and personal relationships. 

In 2010, Ben collaborated with fellow Kentuckians Daniel Martin Moore and My Morning Jacket front-man Yim Yames on the Sub Pop released Dear Companion. The album explored Ben’s desire to use musical encounters as a catalyst to inspire environmental stewardship. 

“I never expect to see that cello in one piece after Ben gets done playing it,” says Yim Yames. “He bows and beats and works it over with a passionate fury rarely seen. Don’t get me wrong – he can play it and hold his own with the most schooled and delicate scholars out there, but more importantly, Ben makes it live.” 

Later, Ben embarked on the “Ditch The Van Tour.” Ben and band abandoned the comforts of a motorized vehicle and hauled their gear and instruments (the cello too) across the country on bicycles. Ben’s mission was to engage a greater sense of community involvement at every performance. 

Ben Sollee is not satisfied with just being a musician. It is absolutely paramount to him to incorporate collaborations, regardless of age or credentials, in his personal and professional life. “I’m such a mutt myself, biologically and socially, that it just makes sense to express that as my pedigree. In the end, that’s what folk music is all about; each of us telling our own story.”

DOORS: 7PM   EARLY SHOW 8PM  ~ Tickets: $12 Advance  $12 At the door.

In some ways, music doesn’t get much more modest or minimalist than it is in the hands of The Civil Wars, a duo comprised of California-to-Nashville transplant Joy Williams and her Alabaman partner, John Paul White. They travel without a backup band, and on their first full-length album, Barton Hollow, the bare-bones live arrangements that fans hear on the road are fleshed out with just the barest of acoustic accoutrements. Each song is an intimate conversation, and no third wheels or dinner-party chatter are going to interrupt that gorgeous, haunting hush. 

If it looks like The Civil Wars’ appeal might cast a net that extends well beyond the typical audience for acoustically based music, that may be due to the inherent sensibilities Williams and White bring to their collaboration, which are quite disparate, if not necessarily warring. Both were gigging and recording on their own prior to teaming up a year and a half ago, neither solo career quite suggesting what their conjoined sound would turn out to be.

DOORS: 7PM   SHOW 8PM  ~ Tickets: $18 Advance  $20 At the door.

Seryn is a 5-piece band who calls Denton, TX their home. When listening to the well layered textures of guitars, ukulele, accordian, bass, viola, and various percussion, it's hard to imagine This Is Where We Are is the band's debut effort. The band's strength resides in their vast musical talent and understanding of dynamics. Their beauty is gracefully displayed through chilling harmonies. Each member and their voice carry the same importance. One is not complete without the other. It is in this craft that the young band shines so bright. It has earned them a sound that isn't easily defined, but still proves triumphant.

DOORS: 5PM    SHOW 9PM  ~ Tickets:  $10 At the door.
