Monday, August 16
JERRY JEFF WALKER
General Admission Seating - First Come, First Seated
Doors 6pm, Show 8pm
$35 adv, $40 door
VIP Booth for 4: $220 // VIP Booth for 6: $330
Jerry Jeff Walker is strongly associated with the progressive ("outlaw") country scene that centered around Austin, Texas, in the 1970s. Jerry Jeff moved to Austin, Texas, from upstate New York, in the early Seventies and reinvented himself as a Lone Star country-rocker. He became, along with Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel, one of the arbiters of the internationally famous Austin musical community. Since then, he has celebrated the music of peers such as Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and served as a fountainhead and inspiration to younger musicians such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider, and a moderately successful country tunesmith named Garth Brooks.



Tuesday, August 17
YOSO w/Bobby Kimball of TOTO + Former Members of YES
General Admission Seating - First Come, First Seated
Doors 6pm, Show 8pm
$25 adv, $30 door
VIP Booth for 4: $180 // VIP Booth for 6: $270
The term "Super-Group" can only describe the formation of two of the most creative and musical legendary bands of the past 30 years into the new band YOSO.
Formed out of TOTO's brilliant vocalist Bobby Kimball and the creative force of YES members, Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood, it does indeed equal the magic of YES with the voice of TOTO. YOSO is rounded out with two amazingly gifted musicians: Johnny Bruhns is the guitarist and second vocalist. Scott Conner completes the line-up on drums and percussion.
However, YOSO is much more than a combination of two classic rock groups. YOSO has combined their musical talents to produce an album of new music as well as a live DVD, which will be released in mid 2010.
Their show features the timeless hits they performed with their former bands, including "Africa", "Rosanna", "Hold The Line", "Roundabout", and "Owner Of A Lonely Heart", and previews their new studio material.



Wednesday, August 18
LALAH HATHAWAY + DWELE
General Admission Seating - First Come, First Seated
Doors 6pm, Show 8pm
$45 adv, $50 door
VIP Booth for 4: $260 // VIP Booth for 6: $390
Her last name is Hathaway and she continues to do honor to her musical legacy.
Born to Donny Hathaway, one of the most influential soul artists of our time, and Eulaulah Hathaway, an accomplished musician in her own right, LALAH HATHAWAY, a native of Chicago, first put pen to paper, "with the music," as a 10th grader. Later, as a student at Berklee College of Music, she recorded her self-titled debut in 1990, which spawned the hits "Baby Don't Cry," "Heaven Only Knows" and "I'm Coming Back." She returned four years later with A Moment, followed by the much-lauded The Song Lives On, her duet album with Joe Sample in 1999, the same year she began growing her now-signature, cinnamon-hued 'locs. By 2004, she'd deliver her fourth album, Outrun the Sky, garnering Hathaway her first number one single, the Rex Rideout-produced cover of Luther Vandross' Forever, For Always, For Love, which was also featured on the critically-acclaimed Vandross tribute album of the same name.

DWELE cites Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Roy Ayers, Miles Davis, and Freddie Hubbard as favorite artists, and took inspiration from hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, becoming an MC, and working with Slum Village. He recorded a demo in his bedroom, called, The Rize, and sold it out of the trunk of his car. He had about 100 copies, which sold out within a week. He caught the ears of local heroes Slum Village and more specifically their world-renowned producer J Dilla. Slum Village invited Dwele to sing the hook of the song "Tainted" for their album Trinity (Past, Present and Future). It became an instant classic and led to more high profile work with female rapper Bahamadia, the all-star group Lucy Pearl and London's New Sector Movement. Dwele signed to Virgin Records in 2003, who released his debut album, Subject, which mixed neo soul and hip hop. In a 2005 review in The Independent, his style was summed up: "Dwele's rooted in vintage soul but isn't stuck in the past, overly reverential or an exercise in pastiche - there's a major hip-hop edge which betrays his original incarnation as a rapper." A second album, Some Kinda..., followed in 2005. He then later signed with RT Music Group and KOCH records in March, 2008 He is coming out with his fourth album titled, W.W.W. (W.ants. W.orld. W.omen) coming out June 29, 2010. Dwele was recently featured on the first single off of Kanye West's fifth studio album, Good Ass Job. The song was entitled "Power" and was leaked on May 28, 2010.

Thursday, August 19
EDDIE PALMIERI + LA PERFECTA II
Open Dance Floor - General Admission Seating - First Come, First Seated
Doors 6pm, Show 8pm
$30 adv, $35 door
