    CANTALOUPER w/ Cowboy Television, Lions Mouth, Owls Foxes & Sebastian CANTALOUPER w/ Cowboy Television, Lions Mouth, Owls Foxes & Sebastian July 1, 9:00 PM Ages: 18+TBACANTALOUPER w/ Cowboy Television, Lions Mouth, Owls Foxes & SebastianCANTALOUPERSome musical geniuses conduct symphonies, some produce soundtracks for films, some teach guitar lessons. Lucky for us, Levi Dolan creates Rock n Roll. Blurring the lines between sub genres, Dolans brainchild, Cantalouper deserves a reservation at the table with artists like Dinosaur Jr., Daniel Johnston and Low. The Cantalouper sound is as effective plugged in as it is in an intimate setting in which Levi serenades the listener with an acoustic guitar. DROOL is the 1st EP from Cantalouper and is co-produced by David Bazan and mastered by T.W. Walsh. The melodies on this album are equally comforting as they are haunting. Perhaps the cover art, a picture that Levi drew as a child reminds us of the ghost of the children that we once were or still are. Some music has the effect of touching a deep place in our souls as a song becomes more then a song, a friend. Cantalouper will always be that friend that you need in your life and in your ears to remind you that youre not alone. This is not accomplished through self help bookish lyrics that patronize the listener but through an honest letter of diplomatic feelings toward self and people in general.COWBOY TELEVISIONLION'S MOUTH"Lion's Mouth hits it hard and heavy. This duo act is on fire. If you get a chance to hear this outfit. I highly recommend them." - Ari John White Wolf, Red Dragon TV.Lions Mouth produces a fierce wall of sound that is not content with being background music. Swift, driving beats burst from Sara Wexlers sticks hitting you like a well-timed punch. As you lie breathless on the floor, Chelsea Z.s amazingly sweet voice (105.5 TripleM) and five-piece orchestra (Music Without Boundaries) guitar work pull you back up to your feet. These dynamic styles combine to create upbeat, two-fisted confessions punctuated by strikingly gentle lullabies.Chelsea and Sara don't shy away from pushing genre boundaries, drawing wide-ranging comparisons from The Pixies to Joni Mitchell. Having only played together for a year, Lion's Mouth has racked up an impressive list of venues and festival slots including the Bubble Music Festival, PrideFest Milwaukee, Red Dragon Television, and the MidWest Acoustic Music Festival. Lion's Mouth is currently working on their first studio album due out in 2014.With all the sensibilities of pop, the relentless energy of punk, and the heart and soul of folk, Lions Mouth gives indescribable a sound.TBAAges: 18+

    All Young Girls Are Machine Guns w/ Cantalouper, John Klemmensen & The Party, A Ferocious Jungle Cat All Young Girls Are Machine Guns is a seven piece Doo-wop and Soul band from Omaha, Nebraska. Formed back in 2009, AYGAMG has taken the last five years to develop their sound from a mish-mash of pop, jazz, country, and blues and fine tuned it into a consistent soulful sound that The Readers music editor Chris Aponick says should appeal to Billie Holiday fans and She & Him fans alike. AYGAMG are winners of four Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards (Best New Band/Jazz-Easy Listening 2010 and Best Singer-Songwriter 2011 & 2012).www.facebook.com/AllYoungGirlsAreMachineGunsCANTALOUPER (Columbia, MO):www.cantalouper.bandcamp.comJOHN KLEMMENSEN & THE PARTY:www.johnklemmensenandtheparty.bandcamp.comA FEROCIOUS JUNGLE CAT:www.facebook.com/aferociousjunglecat

Bio: Cantalouper is a band from the midwest and as such their sound reflects that point of view. But there is more to it than that.
