11pm  Hosea Hargrove & the Roadrunners, Austin, TX - No one in Austin teases out the blues as effortlessly – and authentically – as Hosea Hargrove.” - Raoul Hernandez (Austin Chronicle Music Editor) Eighty-one year old Hosea and his band The Roadrunners harken back to the origins of Texas blues, with an emphasis on the heart and soul of the music over guitar pyrotechnics. Turning down Jimmie Vaughan's offer to sing for the original Fabulous Thunderbirds (“I wanted to play guitar”), Hosea has taken the journeyman route, offering up his unique brand of blues in and around Austin for more than fifty years. Joined by Pete McClaran (W.C. Clark, Kinky Freedman, Butch Hancock…) and Matt Sessions (Walter Higgs, John McVey, Mike Morgan and The Crawl...) the trio brings almost 200 years of experience to the stage. “Hosea Hargrove I like a lot, we're talking real low down blues...” Stevie Ray Vaughan.

11pm  The Beauvilles, Tampa, FL - What originated as a house band for underground warehouse art parties in sweaty swampy Florida has become one of the Southeast's most recognized independent D.I.Y touring artists. Known for their incendiary and inspired live shows and led by a singer-guitarist evocative of dead 70's icons, the Beauvilles have travelled far and wide across the 48 states, playing hundreds of shows, dozens of festivals, throwing guitars haphazardly across stages, tossing wine at audiences and whisky on themselves.



10pm  Eyes Lips Eyes, Los Angeles, CA - Eyes Lips Eyesis a spirited indie/alternative rock band. The four-piece ensemble creates a diverse style that generates a chaotic yet controlled substance. The band is influenced by All-American rock bands such as the Talking Heads, The Strokes and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Self proclaimed, disco-punk rock, their mixed fusion of rock and roll and deviant lyrics carried Eyes Lips Eyes to Los Angeles to spread their wings and make some noise.

10pm  SweetKiss Momma, Puyallup, WA - Though they have been fittingly described as a "roots" or "southern" rock, those classifications fall short when you recognize the late-60's British invasion, 70's era jam band, and even early 80's metal that impressively seeps it's way into the "SKM" brew. Whether it be classic blues riffs, multi-part harmonies,  or funk-inspired breakdowns, none are out of place in their dynamically capable hands. These guys obviously spent some time digesting their parent's record collections, and seem as though they would be right at home on a vinyl LP circa '74.



9pm  Rachel Stacy, Dallas, TX - Rachel is the total package: a fine singer, multi-instrumentalist who is hell-on-wheels with a fiddle, and beautiful to boot! It all adds up to a great talent and an exciting stage show you don’t want to miss!

Shortly after the release of the EP, the band signed a music licensing agreement with MTV and was heard on MTV’s “Made”, “True Life” and “Teen Mom”. In the summer of 2010 the band placed three songs off the EP on ABC’‘s top-rated teen drama “Pretty Little Liars”.



11pm  Native June, Hollywood, CA - Native June's music is rooted in cities, highways and taverns across the Midwest and abroad. It smells like a 1978 Ford pickup truck barreling through the back hills of Southern Indiana (and it crunches in your mouth like broken teeth at an English pub on a Saturday night.  Their sound is also reminiscent of The Clash, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Modest Mouse, Tom Petty, Bloc Party, Minus the Bear, and the Juliana Theory.

They have been wowing live audiences with sweet melody and sheer sonic power since their debut in February 2004. Guitarist Adrian Conner also plays lead in Hell’s Belles, an AC/DC tribute band so fearsome that Angus Young himself is a devoted fan. Last year Adrian & the band were named one of the Top 10 Rock Bands in the area by the Austin Chronicle.
