    HAPPY FUNKIN’ HOLIDAYS w/ People's Blues of Richmond | Fat Cheek Kat | Urban Soil Saturday, December 27th $10 | Doors:8pm | Show:9pm People’s Blues of Richmond (RICHMOND,VA) http://www.peoplesblues.com/ People’s Blues of Richmond brings a carnival-like mayhem to their dark, blues-infused psychedelia. Their new album, Good Time Suicide, is a study in excess, brimming with ballads of drugs, vice and murder that sonically recall early Led Zeppelin, only weirder and with a modern sheen. Word is starting to spread about the manic intensity of the band’s live performances as they burn up the road in support of Good Time Suicide, sharing bills with a diverse collection of bands—from Ghostland Observatory and Black Joe Lewis to Galactic and Flogging Molly. Fat Cheek Kat (WINSTON-SALEM) http://www.funkandfellowship.com/ With a sound that suggests anything but derivative, Fat Cheek Kat is a funk movement that is irresistible to most. Featuring horn and guitar driven funk with equal amounts soul, this group is bursting with energy and a charismatic likability that is catching on all over the South East. Urban Soil (RALEIGH) http://www.urbansoilmusic.com/ Urban Soil is focused on creating the best possible original music. The combination of all out, electrified, jam band inspired musical explorations and the more Americana, acoustic flavors makes Urban Soil truly unique. Sarah’s powerful voice is complex and thought provoking, while being strong and soulful at the same time. Eric and the rest of the band provide a tight, concise backdrop for her to fully explore the sonic space.

    7pm Secret Islands 8pm People's Blues of Richmond 9pm Gone Quite Mad 10 pm Not Blood Paint Not Blood Paint’s shows have gained a reputation for being unpredictable, disorienting experiences. They employ costumes, set pieces, audience, plants, and theatrics to create immersive spectacles that keep audiences reeling and give physical lives to the songs. The band has developed a system called the New Suit Methodology as a way of experiencing the music and environment differently each time, looking to encourage non-anticipation in themselves and those in the room with them. People’s Blues of Richmond brings a carnival-like mayhem to their dark, blues-infused psychedelia. Their new album, Good Time Suicide, is a study in excess, brimming with ballads of drugs, vice and murder that sonically recall early Led Zeppelin, only weirder and with a modern sheen.

    People's Blues of Richmond (RVA): PBR brings a carnival-like mayhem to their dark, blues-infused psychedelia. Their new album, Good Time Suicide, is a study in excess, brimming with ballads of drugs, vice and murder that sonically recall early Led Zeppelin, only weirder and with a modern sheen.

M.H. & His Orchestra (DC): One could easily throw a "musical chairs" allusion into the description of this group: from a one man project to a 44 piece orchestra then finally resting as a ten person touring band-- it's impossible to escape the notion that this has shaped what Sounds of RVA calls their "ever-shifting wall of sound". M.H. stands for Max Holiday, the composer, lyricist & singer behind M.H. & His Orchestra- with an age-defying, sincerely insincere croon he leads the grand orchestrations (dubbed "Orchestral Back-Beat") through terrain less travelled in modern pop. But it's no longer a one-man-show anymore; through a bizarre train of events this young balladeer has found himself in charge of an orchestra, or so it's called...

    Show starts at 8pm JJ Grey and Mofro’s music has been described as a combination of blues, funk, soul, and rock.[4] Most of the songs are written by JJ Grey and reflect the region where he grew up in around Jacksonville, Florida.[1] JJ Grey attributes artists such as Big Bad John and Jim Reeves due to their style of story songwriting and how that style has influenced the way he writes his songs.[4] Grey also credits southern rock acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jerry Reed as artists who have influenced his style of music, as well as more soulful artists such as Toots Hibbert and Otis Redding.[4] JJ Grey and Mofro are also known for their extensive touring schedule and have continually played at major summer music festivals including Bonnaroo, All Good Festival, Austin City Limits, Wakarusa, and Rothbury.[1] Early on in their touring days, JJ Grey and Mofro gained fame within the jam band scene while touring with acts such as Widespread Panic, Galactic and Ben Harper.[1] JJ Grey attributes most of the band’s strength to their stage performances rather than in the studio.[4] (Wikipedia) People’s Blues of Richmond brings a carnival-like mayhem to their dark, blues-infused psychedelia.

Q: Why are you so good?
A: Well we attribute most of our success to our large consumption of potatoes. You see, in the mornings we enjoy different varieties of hashbrowns and homefries. In the afternoon we prefer french fried potatoes with our meals. And in the evening we rejoice in the soft underbelly of a mashed potato or simply a baked one.
