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.

THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT. Thank you Dallas.

2. Friday, July 22, 2011 @ Club DaDa 2720 Elm St. Dallas, TX 75226




with Special Guests: THOUSANDS


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.

Friday, July 15 -   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.
