Aug. Ray of Light: JHB at Smith’s, Haraways at Venkman’s

Jon Harris Band, Saturday, Aug. 6- Smith’s Olde Bar

The end of summer is nigh, and there’s no better way to celebrate it than some sweaty, bluesy rocknroll with Jon Harris at Smith’s Olde bar this Saturday night. Jon is sharing the night with the very fine band Migrant Worker, with Hill Roberts starting the evening at 9 PM.
Get your tickets in advance, because they’re cheaper, and make a plan for Saturday. Jon is one of the most electrifying performers in this fair city, backed by fellow Sundogs Lee Haraway on pedal steel and Kevin Thomas on keys, along with Ganesh Giri Jara on drums and Clint Aul on the bass. Jon’s sound is like JJ Cale and Little Feat and Dan Auerbach all rolled up just for you. Be there.
Haraway Brothers, Saturday, Aug. 13, Venkman’s

As you know we’ve been working a new act over at Venkman’s this year, with the Haraway Brothers playing dinner sets at the lovely Old 4th Ward establishment. We’ll do a pedal steel/acoustic/drums/harmonica thing around 7 PM. It’s a tremendous atmosphere with a creative kitchen and bar staff, if you haven’t checked it out yet, well– let us be your guide. Grab a reservation for a table right here:

— Are y’all watching Roadies? It’s by Cameron Crowe, so while it has some seriously cheesy bits and touring/road tropes, it’s a music fan’s dream (kind of like Elizabethtown.) Every single week you can pick up on a band you’ve never heard of (Frightened Rabbit? Awesome), a legend (Lindsay Buckingham, John Mellancamp) or something truly transcendent like Jim James just hanging out on the Roadies tour bus for the whole episode before playing a beautiful acoustic version of The Who’s “They’re All in Love” to celebrate the victims of the Cincinnati concert tragedy of 1979. Just not something you get on TV everyday. Highly recommended.
— New good’uns out there: The Lumineers new record, “Cleopatra”, Modest Mouse “Night on the Sun” EP, Sara Watkins’ “Young in All the Wrong Ways,” Elizabeth Cook’s “Exodus of Venus“, Brian Fallon’s (of Gaslight Anthem) “Painkillers” and Colvin & Earle’s “Colvin & Earle
–Thanks to everyone that came out to Smith’s last month!
