The Anatomy of Frank, Friday, August 5, at 8 p.m.
Hailing from Charlottesville, VA, The Anatomy of Frank does not claim to know/care enough about politics to argue effectively. But it reserves the right to complain about it when it is artistically relevant.
The Anatomy of Frank believes music is good for many things. Among these are dancing recklessly, sitting motionlessly, percolating, sobbing privately, weeping publicly, destroying things, getting into relationships, getting out of relationships, nurturing a good mood, enunciating a bad mood, entertaining a fantasy that you are more badass than your social situation allows you to be, accepting that you are average in many ways, believing that you are extraordinary in others, laughing, screaming, and jumping.

Jesse Brewster, Saturday, August 6, at 8 p.m.
Having spent much of his musical career as a sideman, San Francisco native Jesse Brewster is taking his rightful spot at the front of the stage. Brewster’s sound fuses a Rock/Americana style he describes as “Tom Petty and Lynyrd Skynyrd get into a bar room brawl with Neil Young and John Mayer.” For more info go to www.jessebrewster.com.
OK Sweetheart!, Sunday, August 7, at 7 p.m.
A group reminiscent of all the good things from mid-century pop, splits their time between San Francisco, Denton, and Brooklyn. Their well crafted simplicity pulls influence from classics such as Harry Nilsson, The Zombies, and Randy Newman. Formerly creating under the namesake of singer / songwriter Erin heart’s uniquely pop sound is the result of an eclectic collaboration with members of Midlake, Elizabeth and the Catapult, The Polyphonic Spree, and Via Audio.
