This is an early show that begins at 7:00 PM with the band Coppertime followed by my regular band Quartjar !
Quartjar will perform a semi-acoustic show celebrating the exhibit "Noise."
i105 WFIV and The Shed at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson are working together to present a One-Of-A-Kind showcase event for local bands this fall. The "Rock-Off" will place six bands in head-to-head competition to see which one will be crowned "2011 Rock-Off at The Shed" champions and will open a Shed show during the 2012 Shed Series Season. How does the Rock-Off benefit Second Harvest? It's simple. During the Rock-Off competition, audience members will be asked to vote for their favorite band through "Penny Votes". One penny is equal to one vote. $1 is equal to 100 votes. Voting jars will be clearly marked and located in The Shed so that audience members can vote for their favorite band. The band with the most "pennies" — (cash is accepted, too) — wins. All Penny Votes will be donated to Second Harvest. When is the Rock-Off competition? October 8, 15, and 22. And the evening is FREE for audience members on October 8 and 15. There will be a $5.00 admission to the finals on October 22 — the admission fee will be donated to Second Harvest.

Bio: In the late 1990s, former psychedelic post-punk and lyrical minimalist Randall used to sit around writing increasingly wordy songs on his acoustic guitar. Then he decided to plug his electric guitar back in. Since 2003, the Quartjar sound has solidified into lean, mean electro-acoustic-prog-blues...See Full Bio
“Don’t let all this talk of literary erudition, middle age, and the meaning of life mislead you, though. Quartjar is a tightly rocking unit with a tangible edginess that probably comes from the players’ experience as punk and metal musicians. Although Brown might seem reserved as an individual, the band is brashly aggressive and cocksure.”
