BACKBONE BOOKING AND FIFTH & THOMAS PRESENT: THE BLACK LILLIES return to Tallahassee, along with local support from THE FLATHEAD STRING BAND!   Doors: 7:30pm | Show: 7:45pm | Ages 21+ OnlyTickets are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show, before tax and fees. No refunds or exchanges of ticket purchases. Advance tickets will also be on sale electronically via Eventbrite and in person with NO FEES at Finnegan's Wake Irish Pub.Known for their captivating blend of rock & roll and country, The Black Lillies have become one of Americana music's biggest success stories: an internationally-renowned band of roots-rockers, armed with songs that blur the boundaries between genres. They are a mainstay on radio and album sales charts, with a sound that is as powerful in the quieter moments as it is explosive during the jubilant ones.The band's pared down configuration has resulted in a bigger, deeper sound built on undeniable chemistry, lush three-part harmonies, and instrumental virtuosity with a funky edge. Their new album Stranger to Me, was an immediate critical and fan success, debuting at #5 on the Billboard Folk/Americana chart, #9 on the Billboard Current Country chart, and #61 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart –no small feat for a band that eschews record labels in order to remain independent and in control of their sound. And what a sound it is: built on the foundation of the familiar roots rock of some of the greatest bands of the past, but altogether fresh, modern, sharp; swirling with psychedelic overtones, torch ballad longing, and an indie rock edge.Don't miss their long-awaited return to the Mainstage, with local support from the Flathead String Band!Learn More About the Artist:THE BLACK LILLIES: Official Website | Youtube | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | BandcampFLATHEAD STRING BAND: Official Website | Facebook

Jeremy Pinnell
No Cover
Click for more information ↓
Doors: 8PM | Music: 9:30PM
No Cover | Ages 21+ OnlyWhen Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as a “ming-blowingly good” (Greg Vandy, KEXP) “tutorial on classic country music” (Popmatters), Pinnell's debut immediately differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the states and celebrated radio sessions followed, cementing Pinnell's position as a no-fuss master of his craft.His 2017 album Ties of Blood and Affection presents a canny lateral move.  Instead of doubling down on the stark themes and values of his debut, this sophomore album finds Pinnell finding comfort in his own skin and achieving the redemption only hinted at in his previous batch of haunted songs.  Here Pinnell joyfully embraces the working life, family obligations, and faith.  His new stories delve into acceptance and survival, all the while investigating his most challenging chapter yet: adulthood.  While “If life don't get any better / I'm alright with this” isn't an out-right triumph, it's an honest revelation.You can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed directly to thick analog tape. Honest and careworn, Jeremy's voice can touch on wry, jubilant, and debauched – all in a single line. Ties of Blood and Affection offers a fair dose resolution to Jeremy's story. At his best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that anyone could do.LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST:JEREMY PINELL: Official Website | Facebook | Instagram | Youtube“Hardscrabble honky-tonk at its best, nodding to Johnny Cash and Buck Owens in equal measure. Ties of Blood and Affection is a stellar collection that could earn Pinnell comparisons to Sturgill Simpson.” – ROLLING STONE“One of my favorite new finds.” – Sean Moeller / DAYTROTTER“Kentuckian Jeremy Pinnell hits all the country-tune sweet spots. His voice is strong and a little mournful — you can feel his ache seep through the speakers as you listen — and the rhythm section shuffles along gently. Weepy pedal steel licks feel just right as Pinnell sings a regretful refrain of 'I did it again,' a familiar sentiment for any of us who've ever done a little backsliding.” – THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION

Makana
$40, $20
Click for more information ↓
hawaiiana, singer-songwriter, traditional

Described as “dazzling” by The New York Times, Makana is an internationally acclaimed guitarist, singer, composer and activist who is widely known for lending his musical talent for social change. His guitar playing has been featured on three Grammy®-nominated albums, including the soundtrack of the Academy-Award winning film The Descendants.Makana's captivating and wide-ranging performance style has led him to share the stage with Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson, open for music legends Sting, Carlos Santana and Elvis Costello, and perform in venues ranging from Asian and European opera houses to The White House.Born and raised in Hawai'i, Makana grew up on the shores of Waikiki amid the diversity of such legends as Don Ho and Bruno Mars. Makana — whose name means “a gift given freely” — began singing when he was 7 years old, took up ukulele at 9 and began learning the ancient art of slack key at 11. By 14, he was performing professionally, and before long, playing five nights a week. His reputation as the youngest virtuoso of slack key spread like molten volcanic lava throughout the islands.The focus of Makana's art is to celebrate the beauty of tradition while exploring new, relevant perceptions, sounds and themes. In his music he often honors his forebearers, the vintage Hawaiian music legends as well as the rock poet idols of the '60s, paying homage to the kupuna (elders) who carry within their Beings the cultural wisdom passed down through generations.Previous Event Next Event
