Allen StoneLike many of his own musical heroes (Stevie Wonder chief among them), Allen Stone pulls off the near-magical feat of channeling a weight-of-the-world sensitivity into his songs while still radiating hope and promise.  Stone’s breezily poetic lyrics touch on topics ranging from rampant materialism to the toxic takeover of technology in art.  Allen Stone’s newest release Radius features a lush yet raw sonic landscape staying true to his pledge to rely entirely on live instrumentation.

Jon Pareles, chief popular music critic for the New York Times praised Stone for possessing “a tenor voice with the eagerness and frisky syncopation of [Stevie] Wonder.”

Allah Las 2Los Angeles based garage rock quartet Allah Las is comprised of Miles Michaud,  Pedrum Siadatian, Spencer Dunham, and Matthew Correia.

Three of the four band members were working in the L.A. branch of the legendary record store Amoeba when the group formed in 2008, and they spent a great deal of time researching the garage and psychedelic sounds of the 60’s.

The Allah Las sound combines the harmonies and pop hooks of the British invasion, the trippy atmosphere of West Coast psychedelic bands, and the raw swagger of countless American garage rockers.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood ~ Tuesday, May 5, 2015


Chris Robinson Brotherhood ~ “Shore Power”

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents An Evening with Chris Robinson Brotherhood on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at the Miners Foundry.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $28.50 in Advance and $31.50 at the Door.  Tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticket fees may apply.  Come celebrate Cinco de Mayo with CRB!

Tickets

 

Chris Robinson Brotherhood 2The Chris Robinson Brotherhood is touring in support of its latest release, Phosphorescent Harvest.  Praised by Rolling Stone as “at once quirky, trippy, soulful and downright magnetic,” it’s the band’s third long-playing album for Silver Arrow Records.

Robinson declares, “We’ve created a piece of rock ‘n’ roll here.  People can look to us and rest assured the genre is alive and well.

 

Chris Robinson Brotherhood 1While Chris Robinson had been the primary instigator behind the 14 compositions that populated the band’s first two releases, this latest effort documents his burgeoning songwriting partnership with Neal Casal.

It also finds The CRB refining it’s approach within the studio.  The band spent the better part of 2013 crafting a tried and true studio album, utilizing the studio to harness their full sonic vision.  Their expansive sense of space and texture has never been so fully realized until now.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood ~ Friday, December 5, 2014


Chris Robinson Brotherhood ~ “One Hundred Days of Rain”

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents An Evening with Chris Robinson Brotherhood on Friday, December 5, 2014 at the Miners Foundry.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets are $24.00 in Advance and $30.00 at the Door.  Tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.

Tickets

crbThe Chris Robinson Brotherhood returns from gathering the ineffable with Phosphorescent Harvest, their third long playing album for Silver Arrow Records.

Having first unshackled the air with Big Moon Ritual and the Magic Door, CRB trucked the realms relentlessly, including a 118 show stretch that never failed to illuminate blank nights to just this side of clarity.

The writing partnership and dialogue between Chris Robinson and Neal Casal has never been as closely woven as it is on Phosphorescent Harvest, almost akin to the conversation you hear murmuring out of the mouths of the moon and the stars as they glide the celestial track.

 

crb3This isn’t a range they ride along through, and as strong as the songwriting so does the rest of the band’s willingness to seek company in chaos’ warm embrace, discovering that in familiar forms there can glow a vastness.

In an age when so many put their beliefs in trends, the volumes have all collapsed and rooms are filled with tiny rock and dampened lamps, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood rolls on to sharpen the blur at your row and wind like smoke through your mind.

Bonnie Prince Billy

 

(((folkYEAH!))) will present Bonnie Prince Billy with special guest Fountainsun at the Miners Foundry on Tuesday, September 29, 2015.  The man who acts under the name Will Oldham and sings and composes under the name Bonnie “Prince” Billy has, over the past quarter-century, made an idiosyncratic journey through, and an indelible mark on, the worlds of indie rock and independent cinema.Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show is at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets are $25.00 in Advance and $30.00 at the Door.  Ticketing fees may apply.  Tickets are available online, by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch C0-Op.

With his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity; his brilliance has captivated fans and made Bonny one of our most influential and beloved songsmiths. Recent projects in 2012 include Now Heres My Plan (EP), Will Oldham on Bonnie “Prince” Billy (An Autobiography edited by Alan Licht, published by Norton), as well as two singles; Billy F. Gibbons/ Matt Sweeney & Bonny Billy “Oh Well” b/w “Storms”, and Dawn McCarthy & Bonny Billy “Christmas Eve Can Kill” b/w “Walkin the Dog”.

Fountainsun

Fountainsun was founded in-larva in Autumn 2011. The core members are Fumie Ishii, of Tokyo and Daniel Higgs, of Baltimore. Both are committed, through sound and gesture, to participation in a song-sustained state of higher communication with all present at live concert events and in daily life.  Stylistically, the duo employs a universal-folkpsalm form, with voice, strings, drums, etc., an “all are welcome” sound.  The Fountainsun album, Music Today, is being prepared for release in July 2015.

 

Desert Daze Caravan Tour

 

 

 

 

(((folkYEAH))) Presents the Desert Daze Caravan Tour at the Miners Foundry on Wednesday, March 1, 2017, featuring JJUUJJUU, Froth, Deap Vally, Night Beats, and Temples.  Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the show begins at 6:30 p.m.  Tickets are $20-$25.  Ticketing fees may apply.  Tickets are available online, by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.

 

It doesn’t take long with Temples’ second album, Volcano, to realize a noticeable evolution has taken place, whilst still keeping intact all the things loved about the band’s debut, Sun Structures. It’s there from the outset: the beefed-up beats of “Certainty” reveal an expanded sonic firmament, one in which bright synth hooks and insistent choruses circle around each other over chord sequences that strike just the right balance between nice and queasy.  Mystical language has been supplanted by something more direct. They’ve been broken down and blended together – fossilized into a single source of creative fuel. The result is a sound of a band squaring up to their potential, and a sound that is undoubtedly Temples.

Night Beats play pure psychedelic R&B music that spikes the punch and drowns your third eye in sonic waves of colour.

Deap Vally are an American rock duo, formed in Los Angeles, California in 2011. The group consists of Lindsey Troy (guitar, vocals) and Julie Edwards (drums and vocals). Edwards met Troy at a crochet class in Silver Lake, Los Angeles.

 

 

JJUUJJUU is an astral union, an arcane ritual, and above all, a conversation.  Harnessing an unspoken energy, the duo have exponentially blossomed from a sonic experiment to a forceful, telepathic dialogue of distinct-but-aligned vibrations. Releasing this dynamic on an expanding spiral of planned and impromptu live shows in the American southwest, the magnetism of the duo only continues to grow, along with its devoted, traveling coterie of entranced acolytes.  

Yonder Mountain String Band

 

 

(((folkYEAH!!))) and the Miners Foundry are pleased to present Yonder Mountain String Band with special guests The Lil Smokies on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.  For nearly 18 years, Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music, expanding the traditional acoustic genre beyond its previously established boundaries by steadily pushing the envelope into the realms of rock n’ roll and improvisation.  Doors open at 7:00pm and the Show starts at 7:30p.m.  This is a standing / dancing show with limited seating.  Tickets are $27 in Advance and $32 at the Door.  Ticketing fees may apply.  Tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry Box Office.

 

 

Yonder Mountain String Band has always played music of their own design, in the process attracting a devout coterie of fans that often resembles a tight knit family on an epic musical journey as Yonder traverses the country with an ever-rigorous tour schedule. Yonder is a quintessential ensemble honing its craft night after night on the road, and the fans are there to experience it in real time. The result is music that doesn’t stand still, it’s always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground.  With their latest album, Black Sheep (scheduled for national release on their own Frog Pad Records at Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 16, 2015), Yonder Mountain String Band — Adam Aijala (guitar, vocals), Dave Johnston (banjo, vocals), Ben Kaufmann (bass, vocals), Allie Kral (violin, vocals), and Jacob Jolliff (mandolin, vocals) — begins a new era. The first YMSB release produced by the band itself, Black Sheep is, by any measure, a triumph, perhaps the most mesmeric of their career. The result, says Kaufmann, is that, “This record sounds more like Yonder than any record we’ve ever done. I’m hoping that when people are finished listening to it, they’ll just hit play and listen to it again.”

 

 

With their roots submerged in the thick buttery mud of traditional bluegrass, The Lil’ Smokies have sonically blossomed into a leading player in the progressive acoustic sphere, creating a new and wholly unique, melody driven sound of their own. The quintet, from Missoula, MT, has been hard at work, writing, touring and playing to an ever-growing fan base for the past 6 years. The fruits of their labor recently culminating with wins at the 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Momentum Award for Best Band and at the 2015 Telluride Bluegrass festival band competition.  In 2013 the band also won The Northwest String Summit Band Competition. With a unique blend of traditional bluegrass, newgrass, innumerable unique originals, sheer raw energy, and exquisite musicianship, The Lil’ Smokies weave seamlessly through genres, leaving behind melodies you’ll be singing to yourself for days and a jaw you’ll have to pick up off the floor.

Dungen

 

 

The Miners Foundry and (((folkYEAH!))) will present Dungen with special guests Once and Future Band, on Friday, August 11, 2017 at the Miners Foundry.  Often classified as progg or psychedelic rock, Dungen is also influenced by folk music, classic rock, progressive rock, garage rock, and alternative rock.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m.  Standing / dancing show with limited seating.  Tickets are $15 in Advance and $20 at the Door.  Ticketing fees may apply.  Tickets may be purchased online, by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.

Dungen frontman/mastermind Gustav Ejstes has been making music for nearly 20 years.  As a teenager in rural Sweden, he became obsessed with hip-hop and sampling.  Digging through crates and searching for obscure source material provided him with an informal education in 60’s pop and psychedelia.  In 2007, Dungen coalesced into a fully democratic band, with members Reine Fiske, Mattias Gustavsson, and Johan Holmegard helping Ejstes to realize his vision while adding flourishes of their own.  As a result, Dungen grew into one of the best and most consistently inventive psych rock bands in the world.

 

 

Once and Future Band is an incredibly accomplished cabal of total prog wizards who have circled the earth, but then, these are the accomplished gentlemen of  many former pursuits (the formidable Drunk Horse among them), and all of them comets themselves.  The very mid 70’s vibe at work here surpasses pastiche, and crests that lovely anachronistic conceptual peak;  a fully realized and meticulously arranged psych record, meant to be listened to from top to bottom, with the lights down low and in a comfy chair perhaps, or while gazing out the window of your life pod.

 

Conor Oberst

 

 

The Miners Foundry and (((folkYEAH!))) are pleased to present Conor Oberst with special guest, Tim Kasher, on Tuesday, October 3, 2017.  Over the last two decades, Conor Oberst has released music of uncommon insight, detail, and political awareness.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the Show begins at 8:00 p.m.  Standing / dancing show with limited seating.  Tickets are $29 in Advance and $34 at the Door.  Ticketing fees may apply.  Tickets may be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.

Coner Oberst has partnered with Plus1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to support Planned Parenthood and their work delivering vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people in the US and worldwide.

 

Conor Oberst joined his first band at the age of 13 and has been releasing music since 1993.  Over the last two+ decades, he’s released music of uncommon insight, detail, and political awareness with his band Bright Eyes, under his own name, as a member of Desaparecidos, as leader of The Mystic Valley Band, and with the supergroup Monsters of Folk.  In the fall of 2015, Oberst returned to his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska somewhat unexpectedly due to serious health isues.  Making and playing music has always been a healing balm for the sometimes troubled musician.  While Oberst wrote and intially recorded (with just voice, piano, guitar, and harmonica) the songs created during this time, he intended to ultimately record them with a full band.  In the midst of putting together the band (upstate New York’s The Felice Brothers plus legendary drummer Jim Keltner) the passionate responses about the first solo recordings encouraged him to release the songs as is, in their sparse, original form, resulting in 2016’s  Ruminations.

 

 

Tim Kasher – of Cursive and The Good Life – released his new solo album No Resolution on March 3rd, 2017 via 15 Passenger, the new label owned and operated by the members of Cursive (Kasher, bassist Matt Maginn, and guitarist/vocalist Ted Stevens). Earning press attention from outlets including All Music Guide, The AV Club, Brooklyn Vegan, CLRVYNT, Ghettoblaster, Impose, Noisey, Paste, PunkNews.org, and Stereogum, among others, the album is the natural continuation of Kasher’s constantly evolving body of work.
