The Heavy Set – Tour Kick-Off – 9:30pm
The Heavy Set is a Rock quartet, with sounds combining soul, hard rock, blues and alt-country. Jake Ilika leads the Americana, Folk and Hard Rock band that earned some praise from local media like The Current, who said “It’s timeless, genre-defying, and worth a good long listen.”

“A warm, easy work of Americana that reflects on ideas of love and home, the record showcases Ilika’s vocal and lyrical capacity, layered with highly refined blues guitar and wailing organ and steel. The self-titled EP rings out with notes of both classic and contemporary alt-country sensibilities. It’s timeless, genre-defying, and worth a good long listen.”
-KT Lindemann, Local Current Blogger, 89.3 The Current

Michael Ray Pfeifer & The Nasty Notes – CD RELEASE – 8pm
Michael Ray Pfeifer is a singer and songwriter who fuses a free-wheeling brand of roots-rock and the songcraft of heartfelt Americana.  His latest release brings it back home with an album called “Blind Faith,” an intimate, revealing album of new songs.  Filtered through the sounds of AM radio; the music pops, lilts and sways with inspired reflection.
“Michael Ray Pfeifer & The Nasty Notes set expectations for their music before you even hear it.  Their record The Higher You Climb has the listener sifting through stories that cobbles together patches of sound to make an alt-country album out of the remains.  It’s raw and will stay with you after the first listen.”   — Youa Vang, City Pages

Wilkinson James – 7pm
A mix of Appalachian roots and edgy singer-songwriter vibe, with a dose of blues.
