Upcoming Events

The Wood Brothers

Rock, Blues, Folk
Oliver Wood, of the blues-roots band King Johnson, and Chris Wood, of the instrumental jazz trio Medeski Martin & Wood, grew up in Boulder, CO but never really found their own musical chemistry until after they'd forged their own, individual paths for 15 years. After years of musical and geographical separation, they decided to unite and create rootsy music that blends blues, folk and rock music in a way that melds their sibling harmonies and the music they loved as kids together into one package. They are currently on tour to support their latest release, 'Live, Volume 2: Nail and Tooth,' a live set collection to be released on August 28 from Southern Ground.

Lucius

Indie, Pop
In the summer of 2007, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig moved into a dusty, old recording studio and music school formerly called the Bromley School of Music. With the help of the Bromley's original 1921 Steinway that was left at the house, they penned their debut album 'Songs From The Bromley House.' The four-story musical fortress housed 8 other musician friends and would soon open their doors to bandmates, Danny Molad and Peter Lalish amid their musical community. Since the critically acclaimed release of their 2013 debut LP, "Wildewoman" they have built a stunningly loyal following, and share an intimate bond with their fans. It’s not uncommon to see Lucius doppelgängers in the crowd. They followed that with the 2016 release "Good Grief."
