Strange Americans w/ Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts | $10

  • Salvage Station

It’s the kind of music that the Carhartt-wearing, hard-working, industrial beer-drinking, regular Americans would listen to — the ones who could end up on an episode of TV’s Dirty Jobs. It’s a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. It’s Americana rock and roll and it’s something that Denver’s Strange Americans are crafting with both brawn and finesse, like a hot rod mechanic bringing back an old barn find.

In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no-frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it."

TALKING DREADS

The name of this band is Talking Dreads. Talking Dreads? Talking Dreads! Sounds familiar? Of course! And a dead giveaway as to what they’re throwing down! But what’s in store is so much more than a reggae-tribute of the Talking Heads’ top hits. Picture that famously funky frequency, picked up on the sunbathed beaches of Jamaica and put through a polyphonically Caribbean kaleidoscope!

You may think “this ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco, this ain’t no foolin’ around” music, and you’re right: this is serious...as in seriously good! A non-stop, funloving musical journey that’s as good for the head as it is for the soul. So get ready to get up, get set and get down as Talking Dreads take you joyriding in their tour-de-force debut!

Talking Dreads began as a project born from the audacious notion that hardcore Heads-lovers wouldn’t mind a tinkering or two with their favorite Talking Heads tunes, and there is a lot of great music here that will make you stop, listen and smile a little bit more as you’re grooving along to the joyous rhythms and jubilant spirit of the island vibe.

Talking Dreads is the brainchild of Head Dread, Mystic Bowie, a Jamaican artist whose long and close relationship with Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth, founding members of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, began when he joined the latter group as a singer in 1996. He then recorded and performed with Tom Tom Club for nearly twenty years and continues to bear fruit from their unending collaborations.

This inaugural effort from Talking Dreads features an amazing lineup of stellar reggae stalwarts including Freddie McGregor [‘Rastaman Camp’, Bobby Babylon], ska-guitar master Ernest Ranglin (session player and arranger of Millie’s smash ‘My Boy Lollipop’, the Melodians ‘Rivers Of Babylon’, and countless other tracks], and Tarrus Reilly (’Start Anew’, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’) as well as a little help from punk-pop diva Cindy Wilson of the B-52s (‘Rock Lobster’, ‘Love Shack’).

In addition to these livelied-up re-takes of Talking Heads’ classics, Talking Dreads’ debut recording also includes two timeless pop bonuses: “Piece of My Heart,” so often attributed to Janis Joplin thanks to her famous cover with Big Brother and the Holding Company, and “Shakedown Street,” a song near and dear to all those in Deadhead nation. “If audiences have even a fraction of the fun listening to this as we had making it, we’ll return to the studio to skank-ify more great songs in the near future”, says Bowie.

Headliner: Runaway Gin at 9:00pm

RUNAWAY GIN

Runaway Gin is the World’s most active Phish Tribute Band.

They play every Sunday at the Charleston Pour House and tour constantly across the greater Southeast region. This summer the band sold out the Hard Rock Cafe “Fare Thee Well” Afterparty on July 4th in Chicago and catapulted themselves onto the National music scene.

Runaway Gin has played many Phish after parties and is known for dropping their own brand of “Phishy” theatrics including an all covers show where they played an entire show consisting of songs Phish has covered and a happy birthday show for Trey Anastasio in which they spelled out “Happy Birthday” using the first letter of each song.

Runaway Gin’s trademark attribute is capturing the essence of Phish yet adding an original twist to jams and shows to fit the mood of the present rather than attempting the futile task of reproducing the past.

The group combines two of Western North Carolina’s favorite bluegrass acts…Jay Franck (mandolin) of Sanctum Sully, with Richard Barrett (guitar), Christian Ferri (bass) and Jackson Dulaney (dobro) of Bear Down Easy.

On their new album Backlash (out February 10), Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears reclaim their original moniker and return to their much-celebrated take on classic soul and punked-up R&B. As Lewis explains, the band’s fourth full-length confronts the ugly reality of “dealing with the backlash from the things you’ve done in the past,” delivering a host of songs rooted in regret but steeped in a defiant spirit. Bombastic but nuanced, Backlash ultimately unfolds as an album both joyfully chaotic and intensely cathartic.
