    Featuring: Kevin Viol ~ 10pm From out of a tract of wet marshy ground outside of Tenby, Kevin pulled his guitar. The rain fell for a month solid and he stayed inside and learned to play the guitar. At night he listened to the moss growing on the slate roof and the trickle of rain on the windows. http://www.reverbnation.com/kevinviol Emily Casey ~ 10:30pm Chicago based singer-songwriter Emily Casey grew up listening to The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan and also lots of bluegrass and old-timey music. She began song-writing at an early age but has only started to play them for actual humans in the last few years. http://emilycasey.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/emily-casey Sadie Rogers of Sadie and the Stark ~ 11pm Sadie composes fantasy rock forged out of 90's influence. She has most recently been seen at the Elbo Room as part of their monthly Babes, Broads, and Bitches series. http://sadieandthestark.wordpress.com/about/ The New Switcheroo ~ 11:30pm "My best friends are my bandmates." The New Switcheroo have a deep love for what they do and for each other; combining downhome folk sensibility with sublime vocal harmonies layered over lush acoustic instrumental arrangements to create a rich sound that will warm your insides and tickle your fancy! http://thenewswitcheroo.com/ http://www.facebook.com/thenewswitcheroo http://www.reverbnation.com/thenewswitcheroo

    Wow, Kevin- "For Roots to Grow" drew me in immediately! "Pause" and "Once Upon a Time I Held You Like a Gun" got me just as much, if not more. Really great vocal and guitar work here. Keep them coming, and I'll be sure to catch a show soon.
