Gasoline Bros

6:30pm - 8:00pm
Site ▸

Born and bred in Atlanta, Georgia, the Gasoline Bros. draw from both in equal measure. Their songs are stirring and soulful, sung from the heart, with an honesty and integrity that evokes back porch banter and gritty home- grown realities. And yet, they also possess a drive and determination that's equal in its ferocity to even the most lethal rockers.

Larkin Poe

8:30pm - 10:00pm
Site ▸

They say madness runs in the family. They say the same about creativity and passion. That's good news for Larkin Poe's sister duo Rebecca and Megan Lovell, the descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Allen Poe.

"We have a very colorful family history," explains lead singer/guitarist Rebecca, 23, who also plays mandolin and violin. "There were a lot of creative, hotheaded, and intelligent branches that went against the grain in our family tree. Our paternal grandfather suffered from schizophrenia, while our great, great, great, great grandfather, Larkin Poe, was a Civil War wagon driver turned historian and a distant cousin to Edgar Allen Poe. Growing up with their crazy stories definitely shaded our perception of normal. As artists, I think some of those innate eccentricities, passed down from generation to generation, have been even further exaggerated in us!" Megan, 25, who contributes lapsteel and dobro to the line-up, chimes in, "As sisters, we just wanted to pick a band name that had familial significance, so we decided to give a nod to our ancestors and take on the name Larkin Poe."

With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base already in place, the sisters want their fans to know that "Kin" is truly their coming of age project. "This is by far the most genuine piece of work we've ever released as a band," says Rebecca. "It's our story, written in our way, played and sung by us. We call it roots-rock'n'soul. It's our whole heart and soul mashed up into a musical form."

Smokin Novas

The Smokin' Novas are described as "Americana music that moves the soul"…and consist of Andrew Hyra, Brian Bristow and Don McCollister. Hyra, founding member of former Atlantic Records recording artist Billy Pilgrim, and Bristow, quickly discovered an easy camaraderie and common vision in their songwriting process that translates well in the studio and on stage. They then brought in multiple Grammy winning producer/engineer/musician McCollister to complete the trio. Their debut album was released in 2014 and available wherever digital music is sold.

The Dusty 45s

3:15pm - 4:15pm
Site ▸

The Dusty 45s have thrilled crowds for over a decade. The readers of the Seattle Weekly voted them "Best of Seattle" 3 years in a row. In 2007 Huels enchanted the theater crowd, starring as Buddy Holly in Seattle's 5th Avenue Theater's production of "The Buddy Holly Story." The fellas were also tapped to back 'The Queen of Rockabilly" and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Wanda Jackson, in support of her blazing, Jack White-produced record. They were also honored to tour throughout the West with Ms. Jackson, opening for Grammy winner Adele.

Singer/songwriter and front man Billy Joe Huels leads the band with an engaging, charismatic stage presence, a rippin' guitar, and a trumpet which serves as an extension of himself. By the end of the show, the trumpet ends up on fire, literally. His original songs are delivered with panache by Seattle's finest roots-rock wrecking crew: Jerry Battista on lead guitar, Kelly Van Camp on drums, Robin Cady on upright bass, and Arthur Migliazza on the Keys. With a deep discography, thousands of miles on the tour van odometer, and a committed fan base, the Dusty 45s are a professional, talented band with a creative fire that burns bright.

Brother Hawk

6:30pm - 8:00pm
Site ▸

Brother Hawk puts on its morning jacket, unhitches its crazy horse, and gallops off in the direction of a big pink house somewhere over the hills and faraway. With this much horsepower at your command, why would you need to reinvent the wheel? As captured on their most recent EP, Affairs of Plain Living, the four piece Atlanta band deals in raging riffs and huge hooks. Rhythms pound and pulse as serpentine guitar leads uncoil and slither, spiked with venomous licks that only a forked tongue could produce. Their blend of Southern fried blues rock is firmly rooted in the earthy tricks traditionally traded for at the red clay crossroads but their live performances convey an electrified ebullience that blasts them into the stratosphere. On stage, they're riding rockets fueled by a vicious cocktail of sweat and hellfire. An uncut, undeniable purity of purpose is palpable when the band is firing on all cylinders. Brother Hawk's sound is the sunset that the hero rides into. It's red hot white light. It's honest emotion. It's alive.
