Dead Larry's powerful blend of high energy rock, dance and funk shakes the foundation of modern music. From rock driven sea shanties to pulsating dance beats. From Beatle-esque harmonies to spine chilling screams. From shake-yo-booty funk jams to orchestral themes of space and time travel. Dead Larry is one thing: Original. The band was formed in a basement in high school, and after nearly 10 years of writing, touring, and chasing the dream Dead Larry has a grown to be one of the most prominent independent rock bands coming out of the Midwest.

Withered Bones

Mon, June 26, Doors: 5:00 pm - Show: 5:45 pm - All Ages - $6  Artist Website
Justin Runge presents...
Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, WITHERED BONES have grown leaps and bounds since forming in late 2013. Their self-released EP showed extreme promise, but it's not until their newest effort, For The Ones I Love out December 4th, 2015 via Blood & Ink Records, that WITHERED BONES prove they're a force to be reckoned with in the world of melodic hardcore. For The Ones I Love recalls both the passion and intensity of influences Killing the Dream and Sinking Ships, while still offering their own unique twist on the style. Don't sleep on this band as WITHERED BONES are sure to make waves in the coming year.

Jason Eady

Thu, June 29, Doors: 8:30 pm - Show: 9:00 pm - 21+ - $10  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Jason Eady's inspired new album Daylight & Dark embraces multiple styles of die-hard country music to weave together 11 songs about the deep, messy details of love and life. The disc is sequenced to follow the arc of one man's journey through the complexities of the heart. But the semi-autobiographical Daylight & Dark is not a concept album. Instead, it's a powerful study in honesty; a collection of real stories populated by real characters that coalesced around Eady's title track. "The moment I came up with the first verse and chorus of 'Daylight & Dark' was a breakthrough," Eady relates. "I understood that what I wanted to convey in the album is that life is not simple. Most songs don't do that. They're either happy or sad. But life doesn't work that way. Most of the time we live somewhere in between. And that place is between the daylight and the dark."
