The Motet

A concert or an album can unlock another world, if you let it. The Motet respect and revere this time-honored phenomenon. Fusing fiery funk, simmering soul, and improvisational inventiveness, the Denver, CO seven-piece—Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keyboards], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Parris Fleming [trumpet], and Drew Sayers [saxophone]—have continually provided an escape for listeners over the course of seven full-length albums since 1998, including their latest release Totem and with an upcoming 2018 release. That extends to countless sold out shows and festivals everywhere from Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Summer Camp to All Good Music Festival and High Sierra Music Festival as well as 16 consecutive years of themed Halloween concerts.

“When you’re listening to us, I want your mind to be taken away from wherever you are during the day and into some other place,” states Dave. “It’s all about that.”

We Were Promised Jetpacks

Scottish rock mainstays We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced their signing to revered boutique record label Big Scary Monsters in Europe and will self-release their forthcoming album in North America. In addition to the signing, the band have announced an extensive tour in the U.S. throughout September and October and Europe later in the fall.

First emerging a group of 20-year-olds in 2009, with their exciting debut These Four Walls, the four members went on to release two further widely lauded albums throughout their ‘20s, 2011’s In the Pit of the Stomach and 2014’s Unravelling. Each band member recently turned 30 and felt like vastly different people to the four 20-year-olds that they were when they first started releasing music.

Having spent ten years almost consistently writing and touring, it was time to decamp home to Scotland and take a breath. They reverted back to their original four members and dealt with several behind the scenes changes. They celebrated a few marriages and tried to remember who they were when not on the road. Now the acclaimed group have returned with a teaser video and are ready to embark on their first huge headline tour in a number of years.

The Stone Foxes

The Stone Foxes are San Francisco’s rock band. They bear the torch of their predecessors with the knowledge that rock ‘n roll can move a new generation. They’ve played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, they’ve headlined the legendary Fillmore Theater in their hometown and they have supported acts like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant and ZZ Top. Now, with the release of their fourth album, Twelve Spells, they have solidified a place in their City’s rich rock ‘n roll history.

“The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that’s rooted in swampy, foot-stomping rock…ambitious arrangements with diverse moods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs.”

– NPR/WXPN “WORLD CAFE”

Poor Man’s Whiskey

Poor Man’s Whiskey is an American band originating in the San Francisco Bay Area rooted around the songwriting talents of Josh Brough and Jason Beard (whom met in 1993 at the University of California, Santa Barbara). Poor Man’s Whiskey’s live show and sound is blend of high octaneold time/bluegrass music (often done on traditional acoustic instruments of banjo, guitar, and mandolin) and a more psychedelic blues/jam rockstyle that call upon their earlier influences such as Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers Band, and the Grateful Dead. Poor Man’s Whiskey seamlessly transitions between acoustic and electric styles with a carefully crafted commitment that revolves around well written songs and stories…while maintaining an exciting element of improvisation and the openness to let a song expand.

Besides their eight original albums and high energy shows, Poor Man’s Whiskey is also known for their special “interpretation sets”. They gained international attention by their bluegrass rendition of “Dark Side of the Moonshine” (a bluegrass take on the classic Pink Floyd album), as well as successful interpretive sets of Paul Simon’s “Graceland”, The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, The Eagles, Old and In the Way, and Kate Wolf. These sets are played in conjunction with an original set or a special festival late night party.
