The Week @ The Mint: The Dustbowl Revival, New Monsoon, Barbara Hall CD Release (FREE SHOW) + Ticket Giveaway

Expect another mind-blowing week of music at The Mint. After a week off, The Dustbowl Revival (recently named LA Weekly’s “Best Live Band of 2013”) returns with their hybrid of brass band/bluegrass/ jug-band music. We’ll also be jamming out to New Monsoon’s acoustic/electronic blend on Friday. We’ve been hosting LA’s best live music for 70+ years and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Scroll down for ticket giveaway!

Monday: Hollowbody LA Presents: The Gurus, Broken Toiz and Naomi Robin. Naomi, an L.A. born Indie-Folk-Blues singer will be headlining the night. She is joined by The Gurus, and self described Neo-Hip-Pop group, Broken Toiz, who combine elements of rock, jazz, hip-hop, and R&B for a completely unique concert experience. TICKETS AVAILABLE AT DOOR $10 for over 21 / $15 for under 21

Tuesday: We’ll be hosting two shows tonight, kicking it off with Tammy Faye Starlite in Nico Underground: A Celebration of Her 75 Birthday 25 Years After Her Death. David Fricke (Rolling Stone) says her performance “…punctuates Nico’s fondly blunt and drolly unforgiving characterizations of Bob Dylan (who gave her the immortal “I’ll Keep It With Mine”) the Velvets’ Lou Reed (“a usurper of souls”) and the teenage Jackson Browne (her accompanist for a spell after the Velvets) with regal sweeps of hair and exasperated stares, her eyes as wide as headlights.” TICKETS $15

During the Late Show at 11:15, we have the pleasure of being joined by Drag the River and Steep Ravine. Hailing from Colorado, Drag the River describe themselves as a Country and Midwestern band and play an elusive mix of rock n’ roll and alt-country reminiscent of The Replacements. Steep Ravine will open, sharing with us their hybrid sound of bluegrass, soul, folk, and roots music. TICKETS $10

Wednesday: Last week we took a week off from our residency with Dustbowl Revival to welcome Houndmouth, who came all the way from Indiana to visit us. This week, the wonderful Dustbowl Revival returns! LA Weekly just dubbed them “LA’s Best Live Band, so come check out this Venice CA-based roots+jazz collective. The Delta Saints and The Record Company will join as openers. TICKETS $8

Thursday: Hollybody LA presents: Debbie Goodman & Friends, Kelli & Lee, and Stage 11. Debbie Goodman is a singer/songwriter who started her career jamming on Nashville, Tennessee’s Music Row. Kelli & Lee are singer/songwriters from Tampa Bay. The folksy/acoustic Stage 11 will close the night. TICKETS $10 for over 21 / $15 for under 21

Friday: Wagtail Presents: The Giving Tree Band, Quactus, and New Monsoon. New Monsoon is a San Francisco rock quintet who combine an exhilarating blend of acoustic and electronic instruments. Original Santana drummer, Michael Shrieve, had this to say about the band: “They have a collective power that comes off as a real unified force on stage. It’s not just a band, you know? It’s something transcendental.” Jam band, Quactus and down-home rockers The Giving Tree Band, open the night. TICKETS $10

New Monsoon

Saturday: We will again be hosting two shows tonight. The early show is a FREE CD release party for singer/songwriter Barbara Hall who is releasing her second solo album, Bad Man. Barbara is a founding member of the alternative country rock band, The Enablers, and is a four-time-Emmy-nominated writer and producer (Joan of Arcadia, Judging Amy). FREE SHOW!

The Late Show will see sets by Solwave, Rags & Ribbons, and The Gallery. The Gallery are a guitar-driven, southern-infused pop rock band and have recently performed with such well-know acts as Rooney, The Maine, and We the Kings. The energetic rock n’ roll quartet Solwave and melodic rockers Rags & Ribbons will open. TICKETS $10

Sunday: Join us Sunday night for The Lady, Derde Verde, and Aquadeer. The Lady is singer/songwriter Aura Jean Anderson. She is joining us from Olympia WA and will open the night at 8:00 pm. Indie-rock trio Derde Verde crafts chameleon-like song structures sprinkled with noise, analog electronics, melodic guitar lines, and rhythmic twists. They will follow at 9:00. Aquadeer will then cap the entire week! Aquadeer is an acoustic band who draw just as much influence from Elliot Smith as they do from the music of North India and The Balkans. And did I mention their beautiful 4-part harmonies? TICKETS $10
