THE TILLERS WITH SPECIAL GUEST JOSEPH HUBER
THE TILLERS WITH SPECIAL GUEST JOSEPH HUBER- THURSDAY, AUGUST 2ND 8PM $10.00 $10 in advance/ $12 at the door “The Tillers.. I could sit and listen to them all night long!” - Iris Dement The Tillers came into being while busking for nickels and dimes in the gaslight district of Cincinnati. Now far removed from those humble beginnings, the band has won over Cincinnati’s bar and festival scene and launched international tours with tireless momentum. They resurrect songs of America’s past, craft originals all their own while touching on themes both historical and timeless. Clawhammer banjo, acoustic guitar and upright bass meet high mountain harmonies that belt, croon, lament and rejoice. They continue to plot their travels around the map, electrifying new places and making new friends wherever they go. From place to place, they carry with them more instruments, new songs, and funnier stories. They are Cincinnati’s traveling minstrels. Expect to hear from them soon. -Bio by Pete Wood- Joseph Huber- Do I have to tell you about Joseph Huber again? Just come, watch and enjoy. He's a Milwaukee treasure. -Bio by Matt
THE BASEBALL PROJECT
THE BASEBALL PROJECT- FRIDAY, AUGUST 3RD 8PM $17.00 $17 advance/ $20 door Formed in 2007 by Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, The Minus 5, R.E.M.) and Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3, Gutterball), The Baseball Project began as a way for a couple of fans to pay musical tribute to our national pastime – and maybe score some free baseball tickets in the process. But The Baseball Project has since blossomed into a full-fledged, much-loved band in its own right, one which currently includes drummer Linda Pitmon (Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3, Zuzu's Petals) and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Mike Mills on its official roster, and one whose following and creativity has steadily grown with each release and tour. “We don't have any rules about what constitutes a baseball song,” McCaughey explains. “It can be anything from a character study of an obscure guy from the 1920s, to something that just happened, to something completely ridiculous like 'Extra Inning of Love,' which takes the baseball-as-love metaphor and tries to stretch it as far as it will go. They can be fictional songs or non-fictional songs. The great thing with baseball is, we'll never run out of things to write about!” http://thebaseballproject.net/ https://www.gofundme.com/c3npfr-scott-mccaughey-medical-fund
NICKEL&ROSE W/ SPECIAL GUEST MAMA'S BROKE
NICKEL&ROSE / MAMA’S BROKE - WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8TH - 8PM $8.00 $8 advance/ $10 door Mama’s Broke https://mamasbroke.ca/ https://youtu.be/wWXyxM2l6gg Mama’s Broke is a powerful folk duo that deliver a compelling performance with heart and raw energy. Although highly influenced by their Canadian roots, Lisa and Amy are based out of nowhere and everywhere. Their two strong voices blend to create haunting harmonies, while they artfully juggle fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin, and incorporate traditional dance and foot percussion into their performance. Their original – and often dark – compositions push the boundaries of tradition and the constraints of genre. Drawing from old-time, Quebecois, blues, punk, Celtic, Balkan and doom metal, they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new. “Multi-instrumentalists Amy Lou and Lisa Maria are masterful songwriters who sing their lyrics as incantations-- twin prophets who bend our ear effortlessly and beckon us ever forward.” — Kaia Kater Nickel&Rose http://www.nickelandrose.com/ https://youtu.be/rJP9q62HWh0 Nickel&Rose is an American folk-music duo made up of Upright Bassist Johanna Rose and Guitarist Carl Nichols. They formed in the summer of 2016 and spent their first winter and the following spring traveling Europe, playing dozens of shows in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Poland, and Ukraine. While in Berlin they recorded their EP, Oh Sweet Love, released in April 2017. Oh Sweet Love, is a sweet-sounding auditory souvenir of Nichols’ and Rose’s four month European journey and a recorded testament to the two-piece’s ability to turn tough times into something vibrant with help from a traveling companion. Nickel&Rose have influences that span the spectrum of American music. Carl’s background brings elements of West African music and Blues while Johanna brings her experience playing Bluegrass, Folk and Jazz. From loss to heart break to love, Nickel&Rose address the human experience with gentle harmonies and soul stirring cries. With a shared appreciation for traditional music and a desire to break rules, the two have have created a unique sound that embodies Americana's past and future. "The two offer an especially expansive vision of roots music, drawing not only from roots and bluegrass music but also blues, soul, jazz and African music." -OnMilwaukee
