Wednesday, August 30th Johnny Butler HyperViolet Release Party feat. D'vonne Lewis & Evan Flory-Barnes
7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm: Johnny Butler HyperViolet Release Party feat. D'vonne Lewis & Evan Flory-Barnes
Tickets: $10 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Saxophonist, composer, producer, and technologist Johnny Butler’s live shows have been a showcase of brilliant improvisation and beautiful electronic music. Groove-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Johnny Butler’s music is a bridge between the past and the present, bringing the artist face-to-face with a creative legacy that spans decades, equally influenced by Intelligent Dance Music and boom-bap hip-hop as Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Over the years, Johnny has performed, written, and recorded with many of his musical heroes in a wide range of styles including writing and recording for Beyonce, playing with tUnE-yArDs, Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), Warren Haynes, the Levon Helm Band, Govt Mule, Rubblebucket, Joe Lally (Fugazi), Strangefolk at StrangeCreek, La La Brooks of Phil Spector’s Crystals, The Skeletons Big Band, recorded with Grammy-award winner and former American Idol Judge Randy Jackson at Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles, and has opened up for Stevie Wonder, Lettuce, Common, Medeski Martin and Wood, Rebirth Brass Band, The Avett Brothers, Dr. John, Fitz and the Tantrums, Counting Crows, moe., Soulive, Sharon Jones and Dap Kings, Trombone Shorty, Grand Funk Railroad, Galatic, Allen Stone, Turkauz, and the Funky Meters.

“After dabbling with resonances from John Coltrane and Miles Davis and enveloping his processed saxophone sound in cavernous reverb, Brooklyn-based Johnny Butler turns a polyphony of overdubbed horns (triggered by laptop) into Fritz Lang’s Metropolis machine on SOLO.” -Downbeat Magazine

Tickets: $10 adv/ $12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Frances Luke Accord are an independent Chicago-based duo hailing originally from South Bend, Indiana. Both dedicated multi-instrumentalists and meticulous songwriters, Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers distinguish their music with genre fluidity, buttery harmonies and acoustic ensembles. Although prevailingly a modern folk band, FLA sip copious inspiration from Americana, jazz, soul, and rock.

Since forming during their senior year at the University of Notre Dame, Frances Luke Accord's approach to music has marked a boundless evolution. In December of 2012 the duo released their first record, Kandote, a not-for-profit, intercultural collaboration with the Barefoot Truth Children’s Choir of Kkindu, Uganda — an endeavor that continues to support the primary education and musical aspirations of the choir. Bringing their world/folk sound to Chicago in the summer of 2013, the duo quickly garnered local and regional attention for their captivating live performances and stunning self-produced releases, including the Queen for Me EP (April 2014), Live @ Strobe (April 2015), and, most notably, their debut full-length album, Fluke (May 2016).

Fluke, FLA's psuedo-self-titled introduction to a national audience, is a self-produced vocal tour-de-force that leaps quickly and definitively into the canopy of contemporary art. It is dreamlike and philosophical, haunting and whimsical. Its melodies evoke a noir film, a Spanish folktale, an enigmatic egoeye. However you pin it, something in the music is turning heads. Whether evidenced by their invitation to perform on NPR's Mountain Stage Radio Show with Larry Groce, tours with Darlingside (national tour, fall 2016) and Anais Mitchell, official showcase at Folk Alliance International's 2017 Conference, or the $16K Kickstarter that funded Fluke, Frances Luke Accord's compositions take the listener by the ear, pull the rug from beneath her feet, and leave her deliciously airborne.

Tickets: $20 adv/ $25 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

“...a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus.” — The New York Times

Ever since the 20th century turned into the 21st, singer-songwriter and guitarist Raul Midón has earned renown as one of music’s most distinctive and searching voices – “a one-man band… who is spiritually connected,” according to The New York Times, and “an eclectic adventurist,” in the words of People magazine. The New Mexico native, blind since birth, has released eight albums since 1999, including the acclaimed studio productions Don’t Hesitate (Mack Avenue/Artistry, 2014), Synthesis (Decca/Universal, 2009), A World Within a World (Manhattan/EMI, 2007) and State of Mind (Manhattan/EMI, 2005). Midón’s questing musicality makes him, as the Huffington Post put it, “a free man beyond category.” Attesting to his enduring ambitions is Midón’s ninth studio album, Bad Ass and Blind, set for release via Mack Avenue/Artistry Music on March 24, 2017.

Friday, September 8th Dave King Trucking Company
8:30pm | Doors at 8:00pm: Dave King Trucking Company
Tickets: $18 adv/$20 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Featuring:
Erik Fratzke - guitar
Dave King - drums
Chris Morrissey - bass
Chris Speed - tenor saxophone
Brandon Wozniak - tenor saxophone

Prolific drummer/composer Dave King is well known for his propulsive work in a number of different bands. From The Bad Plus to Happy Apple to Halloween, Alaska, each group has its own sound and approach, but all are approached in a steadfast manner. These groups are all serious units of focused players who are completely dialed in, honing a solid band sound and identity. It is King’s attraction to a strong group concept that led to his creation of his Trucking Company band and his increasing focus thereon. On its third recording, Surrounded By The Night, the Trucking Company has solidified its identity with new material and a slightly changed lineup. The addition of the Minneapolis born, Brooklyn based bassist Chris Morrissey strengthens the Minnesota-New York connection that has been part of the identity of the ensemble, featuring the saxophone (and clarinet!) of Brooklynite Chris Speed alongside Minnesotans saxophonist Brandon Wozniak and guitarist Erik Fratzke, since its inception.

Over the past few years, Craig Marker has been using his music to capture the stories of those around him. There is a certain honesty that accompanies his storytelling — one that preserves the underlying feelings of desperation, hope, and uncertainty as he translates story to song. These songs reflect experiences of the past, struggles of the present, and dreams of the future — asking, “what if dreams can come true...and what happens if they don't?" He explains, “I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I like to think that I’m starting to ask the right questions.”

Rooted in acoustic guitar, harmonica, and vocals, he is simplistic yet purposeful in his style — forming a modern sound that is classically inspired. Marker had the opportunity to share his work at the University of California, San Diego's 2015 Sun God Festival and recently wrapped up his time in San Diego with the release of his first album, Up Until Now.
