Thursday, March 13: American Babies/ TL3 Tea Leaf Trio/ Doran Danoff, Kula

Tickets: $10 Advanced, $12 Day of show/ Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm/ 21+

The tug-at-your-heartstrings twang of American Babies is a sound that immediately grabs my attention and tunes in my ears for a treat. Their 2013 album Knives & Teeth resonates a deep understanding of the human condition and is described by frontman Tom Hamilton as “a 40-minute existential meltdown” that spans from the Lou Reed-inspired “This Thing Ain’t Going Nowheres” to the  punk energy of “Bullseye Blues” to the reluctant acceptance of “Goddamn,” and depicts the delicate yet severe circumstances of life and the quest for fulfillment.

Friday, March 14: The Dustbowl Revival/ decker/ The Street Hearts/ Moot Davis

Tickets: $10 Advance, $15 Day of show/ Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm/ 21+Photo

 The Dustbowl Revival is a nine-piece band replete with tuba, washboard, accordion, fiddle, mandolin, trumpet and guitar from Venice, CA who specialize in old school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues and the hot swing, creating a spicy yet nostalgic New Orleans inspired sound that rag-tagged them into being named the best live band by LA Weekly in 2013.

We can’t wait to see you here soon, celebrating & supporting music from near & far.

Sincerely,

The Mint LA
