Ramsay Midwood / Evan Charles & Altamesa

January 2, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - January 3, 2016 @ 2:16 am

It’s our first show of 2016. Come make it special with us.

Ramsay Midwood 10p
Psychedelic Country Blues
“Take a healthy dose of John Prine, a dollup of Bringing It All Back Home electric Dylan, a pinch of early Tom Waits, a sprinkle of Charlie Poole, and a splash of Lightin’ Hopkins…the result might be as intriguing as Midwood’s first album, Shoot Out at the OK Chinese Restaurant.”
-Dustin Ogden, “Gospel Music for Inspired Barflies”, No Depression

Evan Charles & Altamesa 9p
Americana/Folk = Altamesa is the backing band that performs the songs of Evan Charles.
The idea of Altamesa born of an offhand conversation with producer and multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson (Lomita, The White White Lights, The Midnight Stroll), who was familiar both with Charles’ songwriting in The Sweet Nuthin and with his side work in The Happen-ins and Nic Armstrong and the Thieves. “He told me, ‘Hey, all this stuff you’re doing is great but you need to get back to doing your own songs.’ So I said, ‘Alright, let’s make a record.’ We took Leonard Cohen’s Songs From A Room and Neil Young’s Harvest as our sonic reference points and went from there.”
