    Vicarious Venues Presents... Jamie Kent and The Options w/ The Last Glances, The Sowing Season, and Jonny Poppas (Full Band) The Music Loft/ Fizz Bar & Grill 3220 N Lincoln Ave Doors 8:30 $8 Jamie Kent and The Options A fresh 26-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Ray Lamontagne and Amos Lee as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Since the release of his debut LP in 2011, the singer-songwriter has been collaborating with his band, Jamie Kent & The Options, to cultivate a sound with a strong folk rock and Americana influence. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Wood Brothers, Marc Broussard, Ellis Paul, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. Additionally, he has received international radio play on over 120 stations (including BBC Radio), had his single “Changes” named the #5 song of 2012 by 93.9 The River, and signed licensing agreements with MTV, Bravo, and The Discovery Network. In October 2012 Kent was accepted into ASCAP’s 2012 Lester Sill Songwriting Workshop where he spent a month working with some of the best songwriters in the business, creating material for his upcoming album. The new EP, titled Embers & Ashes, features five songs that showcase a deeper sense of confidence as a songwriter, and as a singer. The Last Glances Neo pop artist Patrick Hartman and his band The Last Glances combine jazz subtleties with soul, rock, and funk for a sultry, vintage sound with modern pop sensibility. The result is infectious songs that will have you singing along and dancing! The Sowing Season Brett Ratliff and Justin Adams met at the tail end of their undergraduate years, in a sleepy Appalachian foothills town. Around the many exceptional Doric columns and Grecian fountains of the former college, the duo began writing songs about life, love, lack of love, grass blooming sidewalks, 19th century schooners, European explorers, and inter-dimensional portals opening at English country dances. Over the years, their collective went from two to three, back to two, back to three, onward to four, back to two, and is now holding steady at three. The current lineup features the addition of Justin's wife, Misty, who brings to the table a tambourine, a melodica, a ukulele, and all things vocally harmonious. Together, the trio now turn their pens, strings, and voices to the journal entries of first century fishermen, traveling doctors, and repentant Zealots, the annals of ancient Semitic nomads, the poetry of kings, seers, and backwoods prophets. The result of their wanderings through dusty, forgotten stories are songs that while original are somehow not their own. Jonny Poppas Singer/songwriter originally from a small town outside of Lincoln Nebraska. He grew up with a passion for music and took on percussion, playing a small set in his early years. He and his band, "Layover" can be seen around Chicago representing a sound that that would make the city proud to have them. Layover consists of 4 members Jesus Segura, "Chewy" who's bumpin' the Bass, Victor Aguirre bangin' on the Drums, Fritz Gross, "Fritz the Violinist" and Jonny Poppas finishing out the tetrad with Guitar and Vocals. The band has traces of Rock, Pop, and other genres. Come see them play and you can be the arbitrator.
