Saturday, March 8: Ben Taylor/Suzanna Choffel/
Beautiful Things Unplugged
: $15 Advance/ $18 Day of show/ Doors open at 8:30pm, Show starts at 8:45pm/21+
As the son of James Taylor & Carly Simon-it only seems natural that Ben Taylor would be drawn to the family business-
“My scholastic career was not successful. My attention wanders, and I like to follow it. It’s a creatively lucrative process for me. My internal jukebox was always so much louder than my teachers”-says Ben, who spent the four years preceding his 2012 release Listening’ doing just that-listening…and thinking. Listening, flawlessly fuses the sounds and styles of folk, pop, soul, urban, reggae and country and is-according to Ben , “an evolution. Some songs were actually recorded four years ago, some were recorded a few months ago, and a few recorded a few weeks ago just in time to make it. This album runs the gamut from both the production style and the period of my life in which they were recorded. These songs are little windows into the last four years of my life.” Ben took his time recording this album-refusing to limit his creativity with deadlines.
Sunday, March 9: Dub FX
Tickets: $15 Over 21/ $20 Under 21/ Doors open at 10:30pm, Show starts at 11pm
Dub FX is a Looping/Dub-Step artist who hit the streets to play music and has become an independent sensation by having his friend film him performing-which went viral after being uploaded to Youtube and has since given Dub FX the opportunity to reach a larger audience by touring more extensively.

They share percussion duties with their fast feet and live by the motto “If you can’t do it, kazoo it!” Their powerful voices intertwine, harmonize and amaze.

Carolyn Wonderland enchanted an enthusiastic audience last night with her Texas blues style that was anything but traditional-seeing as you only stumble upon a set of pipes such as hers once in a blue moon, and indeed the blues emerged in full force out of Wonderlands Moon Goes Missing and hung heavy for a stellar session that included Cole El-Saleh on Keys and Rob Hooper on Drums. Given that she seems to naturally channel the powerful vocal force of Janis Joplin-Miss Wonderland included a cover of What Good Can Drinkin’ Do, shortly after she and the band indulged in shots of (tequila?) that had been provided for them by some eager and enthralled spectators-bringing even more heat to a performance that was already on fire.
To add even more excitement, Carolyn Wonderland and her band were joined on stage by Ty Taylor & Nalle Colt of LA’s soulful r& blues band Vintage Trouble-who were opening for The Who during this time last year-for a few songs, including Ray Charles’s Lets Go Get Stoned.
As if the night wasn’t musically exhilarating enough, the cherry on top was tucked in a booth table -that cherry being The Stooges guitarist -James Williamson, who was enjoying the show with family/friends-most likely after a long day at this years NAMM Show!
Some words of and wisdom from Carolyn Wonderland: ” Take a chance on an unknown band”.
