Southern Culture On The Skids

Performing Sat. Sept 30

For over thirty years, Southern Culture On The Skids have played an eclectic range of Americana including rockabilly, surf rock, country and r&b, with a punk edge and heaps of humor. They are known for their legendary live shows and wacky antics, including throwing fried chicken and banana puddin’ into the crowd as well as inviting audience members on stage to dance. Visually SCOTS look a bit like the hillbilly stepchild of the B-52’s with Mary’s trademark beehive hair-doo and Rick’s hick overalls. But it’s more than just great fun; they are fantastic musicians to boot...Elmore Magazine: by Mike Cobb

Pierce Edens

Sat, Sept 30

Asheville’s Pierce Edens heard old-timey mountain music until his teens; that’s when he was steeped in punk and grunge. Both inform his music. His shadowy baritone has a dark, jazzy canter reminiscent of Tom Waits, while the percolating strings below it veer from bluegrass to closing-time cabaret. The punk manifests in the rebellious free-spirited nature of ‘Montana’

The Get Right Band

Sat. Sept 30

“The Get Right Band’s music combines styles from funk and rock n’ roll to reggae. Their melodies are a perfect blend of energy and fun supported by smart lyrics. It has been a real pleasure for me to collaborate with them creating the illustrations of their new album “Who’s in Charge?” which will be released this August. It offers moments of great funk and rock where the virtuosity of Silas Durocher’s voice and guitar are perfectly integrated with Jesse Gentry’s bass and JC Mears’ percussion.”
