    • Description
      Randy McAllister plus Jeff Ray & The Stakes on Saturday, June 8 at The Hook and Ladder Theater Randy McAllister; Grammy-nominated, singer, songwriter, harmonica player, drummer and legend of East Texas Blues/Roots. Roustabout, maverick, spiritual, gritty, amazing, wild, bad-ass, soulful..…these are some of the words used to describe this Texas bonafide blueblood.  One of America’s true blues/roots originals, he’s been flying in the face of convention his whole career. No smoke, no mirrors, no choreography, no industry machines. While comparisons are not easy, it has been said that his music is a cross between Doug Sahm, John Hiatt and Delbert McClinton, with a blues man's background and sensibilities thrown into the mix.

      Gramma's Boyfriend with Catbath
      $17/20
    • Description
      Gramma's Boyfriend with special guest Catbath on Saturday, June 15 at The Hook and Ladder Theater When you first read the name Gramma’s Boyfriend, it brings an uncomfortable, funny feeling. But when you first hear Gramma’s Boyfriend, the feeling becomes something new, slightly terrifying, and fun. The five members include front woman Haley McCallum (FKA Haley Bonar), Jeremy Ylvisaker (Cloak Ox, Andrew Bird, Suburbs), Mark Erickson (Cloak Ox), Luke Anderson (Rogue Valley), and Jacob Hanson (Actual Wolf, Haley, All Tomorrow’s Petty), who join forces to create the psychadelic dance punk that is guaranteed to make you move. Think Blondie, Devo, and Suburban Lawns meet Dead Kennedys. But don’t think too much. Gramma’s Boyfriend certainly doesn’t. And that is the whole point.
