at Pantages Theatre
Wednesday, 01/27/16, 7:30pm ($35-$45)
Josh Ritter (who we previously described as "happiest man alive") and his band The Royal City Band will be stopping by the historic Pantages Theatre next Wednesday, January 27th, as part of his promotional tour for his latest Sermon On The Rocks, available now on Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers.
The record was named one of American Songwriter’s “Top 50 Albums of 2015” and PopMatters’ “80 Best Albums of 2015,” while Paste Magazine including his song “Birds of the Meadow” in their “50 Best Songs of 2015” list. The New York Times was so impressed, comparing Ritter to "Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and maybe a little Mark Knopfler."
Opening will be Colorado's Elephant Revival, who we previously saw in 2014 and noted that they kept the entire audience dancing throughout their set with their Americana/Bluegrass music.

at 7th Street Entry
Wednesday, 01/27/16, 7pm ($8)
Bayonne, the new moniker of Austin-based Roger Sellers, will be making a stop at the 7th Street Entry on Wednesday, January 27th. The artistic style of Roger Sellers is all over the place. Think folk-dance-americana-electric-symphonic fusion. His multi-layered instrumentation paints a complete picture even though he is a one-man show.
Primitives is Bayonne's debut album, its maze-like music structures are hints of both Steve Reich and Owen Pallett, each instrument working a single melodic pattern over and over and over. Primitives is set for release on Mom+Pop Music on March 25th, but Sellers will likely preview these songs live at the 7th Street Entry.
Listed as co-headliner is local Umami, described as "an Electro-Psych band".
Beasthead will open.

As you know, with the unexpected passing of David Bowie, there was great sadness across the country. There were also plenty of quick pop-up dance nights including Bowie Movie Night taking place tonight at the Turf Club and this upcoming Bowieoke, an "all-Bowie Karaoke Celebration", hosted by Ian Rans.
Channel your inner Bowie for the costume contests and various space oddities.
