Tim Bluhm Band - Coffis Brothers and Mountain Men will open and back Tim - California Soul
Saturday September 7, 7 pm
$24 advance / $28 day of show
Tim Bluhm has earned a reputation as the quintessential California musician. Born and raised in the Golden State, as the singer/guitarist and primary songwriter of rock band The Mother Hips, Bluhm has spent the last two decades performing, writing, collaborating on, and producing music.
Tim is backed at this performance by the Coffis Brothers and the Mountain Men, who will also open the show.
The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men are a rootsy rock n' roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Influenced by those early surroundings, songwriters Jamie and Kellen Coffis' blend of folk, blues, R&B and straight-ahead rock is evidence an upbringing spent listening to all of the right records from Tom Petty, Neil Young, and The Beatles.

Los Pinguos' music has appeared on TV shows like The Shield and The L Word, in movies such as Antonio Banderas and Emma Thompson's Imagining Argentina, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and two of their songs were included in Katherine Heigl's movie The Ugly Truth.
The Easy Leaves with opener Trevor McSpadden - Country, the lean Bakersfield sound
Saturday September 28, 7 pm
$17 advance / $21 day of show
Usually a duo, the Easy Leaves appear as a full band for this concert.
When some folks talk of country music - or any genre, for that matter - there's sometimes a tendency to over-generalize. For some, country means the watered-down-power-pop-with-a-touch-of-twang that dominates the airwaves. The Easy Leaves' debut album, American Times, is most definitely country music, but it's colored and enriched by many thoroughly integrated influences. The Leaves' harmonies are resplendent with echoes of the great "brother" acts of country music: The Louvins, Everlys, and Glasers.
The one aspect almost all songs on this collection share is the leanness of that Bakersfield sound, as defined by an engaging, cracking beat; the resolute twang of electric six-strings, the midnight-lonesome whine of a pedal steel guitar, and heartfelt singing with both the singer's heart and beer stains on his sleeve for the world to see. It's that relatively unadorned rawness that cuts across generations and genres. "I love music that has a sense of place: Memphis soul, Texas swing, conjunto, Delta blues," said Carducci. "Each one of those styles conveys a lot about the history of its place of origin. Bakersfield is one of those sounds, one of the signature sounds of California. There is a classic quality in the rhythm and instrumentation that kind of captures that spirit of a crowded honky-tonk [barroom]."
Trevor McSpadden was raised in the Texas Hill Country and seasoned in the clubs of Chicago, and is a genuine honky tonk song and dance man. He spent five years as the lead singer of Chicago's most beloved country band, The Hoyle Brothers, before taking to the road as a solo act. Now working out of Southern California, McSpadden is making the most of his West Coast residency.
