Manchester Orchestra - Chris Staples
This event is all ages
Manchester Orchestra



Each ticket includes a digital copy of the new Manchester Orchestra record "HOPE."

"Cope, to me, means getting by. It means letting go, and being OK with being OK," says Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull. "You can cope in a positive way when bad things happen or a negative way, and that blend was a big lyrical theme for me on this album." The Atlanta band found itself at a crossroads as they approached making their fourth studio album -- in between labels, uncertain of Manchester Orchestra's future for the first time since Hull started the band almost a decade ago. He was barely finished with high school back then, and now Hull and his bandmates were transitioning into the adult reality that shit happens. They'd learned a bit about letting go themselves.

So Manchester Orchestra regrouped. They built a studio with their own hands, and spent month after month workshopping new tunes, writing and demoing together in a room -- a process that was completely new for them. The change did them good. Witness the title track: COPE takes its name from the track that closes its unrelentingly heavy thirty-eight minutes with the strongest blow of them all. The behemoth "Cope" was written during one of the earliest sessions for the album, and it helped chart the course for everything that followed. Manchester Orchestra had undertaken a process of writing and demoing a new song every single day, with Hull composing lyrics as they went. "Sometimes when you're making up lyrics on the spot, God will drop one on you that you didn't intend," says Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull of writing "Cope." "There's a lyric, 'And I hope if there's one thing I let go, it is the way that we cope. I remember being like, 'Fuuuck, that's really cool,' and getting kind of teary about it. It was like, 'alright, now we have our starting point.'"

For their previous LP, 2011's Simple Math, experimentation had been the goal. Hull conceived an epic, memoiristic concept album that featured elaborate arrangements including a string section and children's choir. Their highest charting album to date, Simple Math also earned widespread critical acclaim, with American Songwriter noting: "They've perfected the balance of gorgeous songwriting and rabid musicianship, so we can't wait to see what they do next."

But even once they had COPE, it took them a minute to figure out which sonic direction to follow. Working on and off over the course of several months between June 2012 and March 2013, they amassed 28 new songs. "We were writing all different kinds of songs in different genres," says Hull. Staring down a list of almost thirty demos from the previous year, the singer and his bandmates -- lead guitarist Robert McDowell, keyboardist/ percussionist Chris Freeman, bassist Andy Prince and drummer Tim Very -- came to a realization. "We wanted to make the kind of album that's missing at this time in rock: something that's just brutal and pounding you over the head every track, something unrelenting and unapologetic," Hull explains. "Whereas Simple Math was a palate with each song a different color, I wanted this to be black and red the whole time. Our mission statement was to make a crazy-loud rock record. We demoed some slower, introspective songs, but we had to set those aside because this album is not that. This album was about being cool with dedicating yourself to something and sticking through with it. Even the album title is bold and straight-to-the-point."

For each of their first three albums, Manchester Orchestra had worked with producers Dan Hannon and Joe Chicarelli in established studios in Nashville and Atlanta. But they wanted to try something different this time: The band bought a house in Atlanta where some of them had previously lived as roommates, and spent money they'd saved to gut, renovate and soundproof the whole building, turning it into the studio where they would record COPE. "It took us like six months, because we did it all ourselves," Hull explains. "We had a buddy who had helped Chris Walla build a home studio, so he was there as a kind of foreman. We'd gotten together a sweet amount of recording equipment over the years, because we'd always save some of our advance for gear. So we brought all of it into this awesome new space we'd built, and started going to work on recording. There was no studio clock ticking, so we had the freedom to take our time and do whatever we wanted. It was really cool, but weird, not having someone there saying 'this is what you should do.' It was more difficult but more rewarding." They eventually did hire John Agnello (Dinosaur, Jr., Kurt Vile, The Thermals, Sonic Youth) to mix COPE at FLUXIVITY in Brooklyn.

When it came to committing the final eleven tracks to tape, Hull says the addition of new bassist Prince and the recent addition of Very on drums helped them achieve even greater rhythmic heft. Talking about album-opening track "Top Notch," he notes: "The song has a groove that's insane because the drums are really insane and the bass is insane. The trick is to write complicated things that sound simple, and simple things that sound complicated. That was a big mission statement for us on this album, as well." Regarding first single "Every Stone," Hull laughs and says, "If Manchester Orchestra wrote that song five years ago, it would have been six and a half minutes long and the ending would have never stopped. The thing I love about 'Every Stone' is it has this massive ending, but then it's over after 45 seconds. It's a great feeling as a listener, when a song leaves you wanting to immediately hear it again."

Ten years after a then-seventeen year-old Hull started Manchester Orchestra as an outlet for his tender bedroom recordings, the singer-songwriter says this time he didn't relent until he'd achieved the exact sound he had in mind . "This was really the most hands-on I've ever been," he says. "I wanted to drive it home completely and so we did, and I'm more proud of it than any record we've done before. Of course, as soon as this one is out, I'm gonna start thinking about how we can make the next one better."

Kung Fu


Featuring members of RAQ, Deep Banana Blackout & The Breakfast, Kung Fu is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making fusion music "cool" again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters, Weather Report, Return To Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. The ensemble, a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam, is currently touring in support of their eponymous debut album. The powerhouse quintet's live show has been described by critics and fans alike as "lethal funk", "explosive", "jaw dropping", and "musically mesmerizing".

Kung Fu features Tim Palmieri (guitar), Robert Somerville (tenor sax), Todd Stoops (keyboards), Chris DeAngelis (bass guitar), and Adrian Tramontano (drums/percussion). The powerhouse quintet's live show has been described by critics and fans alike as "lethal funk", "explosive", "jaw dropping", and "musically mesmerizing". Although the essence of the Kung Fu Krewe is rooted among ancient jam dynasties, this fledgling "nu-sion" project intends to dominate audiences while nourishing the chi of all who cross their path. For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: ENTER THE DRAGON

Chris Smither & The Motivators - Rusty Belle
This event is 18 and over
Chris Smither & The Motivators


Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original.

Still On the Levee, to be released on July 22, 2014 is a career spanning retrospective double CD. Recorded in New Orleans with studio-mates, The Motivators, Still On the Levee plays host to special guests including Allen Toussaint and Loudon Wainwright III. The record highlights the vast catalog of an American music master.

Reviewers and fans from around the world agree that Chris is a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist and, as he puts it, a 'one-man band to the bone! Chris melds the guitar styles of his two major influences, Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature sound. His music continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers.

'Link Of Chain', a tribute album of Chris Smither originals with stellar versions by Dave Alvin, Tim O'Brien, Bonnie Raitt, Josh Ritter, Loudon Wainwright III, Jorma Kaukonen, Eilen Jewell and others will be released on September 16, 2014.

Smither, a folk-blues singer-songwriter admired and covered by vocalists such as Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris, grew up in New Orleans and told illuminating stories about trying to be a solo cat in a saxophone and trombone city in the Sixties learning from Lightnin' Hopkins records and the New Orleans-based bluesman Babe Stovall then running with fellow New Dylans like Townes Van Zandt. David Fricke, Rolling Stone, May 1, 2014

Eluveitie - Tyr, Metsatll
This event is 18 and over
Eluveitie


Initially formed back in 2002 as a mere studio project by main man and mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann. His vision was to create a blend of Gothenburg styled melodic death metal with ancient folk melodies and themes that would soon become the New Wave Of Folk Metal. Now, more than 12 years on, ELUVEITIE have established themselves as the most successful Swiss metal act to date.

Ten years into their career, ELUVEITIE released their critically acclaimed fifth studio-album Helvetios (2012), followed by their 10 year anniversary compilation, The Early Years (2012). The band toured relentlessly through North America, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia in support of Helvetios, alongside bands like WINTERSUN, CHILDREN OF BODOM and SABATON; and the album charted all over the world; #3 in the Billboard Heatseekers Chart (USA), #4 in Switzerland, #6 Canada Hard Music, #7 USA Hard Music, #27 in Germany and #34 Austria).

The current incarnation of the band features two new members: Guitarist Rafael Salzmann, who took over strings in summer 2012 for Simeon Sime Koch and Nicole Ansperger who replaced long-time member and violinist Meri Tadic.

With the new line-up solidified, ELUVEITIE made history this year as they become the first ever metal band to receive an award at the renowned Swiss Music Awards - the Swiss Grammy Awards equivalent. The band won the 'Best Live Act National' category, an entirely audience- voted award. Since taking home their Swiss Music Award, ELUVEITIE entered Swiss New Sound Studio to work on their sixth studio album, Origins. The band decided to work with legendary producer Tommy Vetterli (KREATOR, CORONER).

Origins deals with the Celtic mythology, or to be more precise, with aetiological tales from Gaul, commented vocalist and front man Chrigel Glanzmann. Glanzmann also created the album artwork for this new offering and goes on to explain: The album cover of Origins is designed after the hammer/club-shaped 'halo' of Sucellos, as seen on a statue that was found in a shrine of a gallo-roman household in today's France. It was created under the scientific supervision of experts from the University of Zrich.
