Genre: Garbage Folk
For fans of: Carolina Chocolate Drops, Tom Waits

Holy Sheboygan! is a band of scavengers. Creeping through the dark alleys of musical sound, they borrow melodies from a wide array of genres, tape-recorded noise from the chaos of their everyday lives, and re-purposed percussion from the dumpsters of Wisconsin’s Fox Valley. By their very nature, they can be described as nothing other than 'garbage folk.'

For fans of: Nick Lowe, Leonard Cohen, Justin Townes Earle, Kris Kristofferson

This New York City veteran singer/songwriter/guitar slinger has been a mainstay on the Americana/roots-rock scene for over two decades. His latest (I am a Weed) finds him in great form on these (lucky) 13 tunes exploring the journey of life with and without love, accompanied by an able stable of well-known Big Apple players. Tops for me is his gospel-fueled offering "The Good Lord Smote My Eye."

8pm- Aurical
Genre: Singer/Songwriter
For fans of: Tori Amos, Billy Joel, Herbie Hancock, Pearl Jam

Founded by musicians Rachel Rossos and Michael Gallant, Aurical is the sort of indie rock band your grandmother would love: honest, polite, well-groomed, and capable of telling a damn good story.

Their debut album, Something to Say (Gallant Music) was recorded in Berkeley and San Francisco, California and received praise from audiences and critics alike. They currently play and record in New York City, including recent appearances at CMJ Music Marathon and Lincoln Center.

 “A rare talent” - The Times of Trenton

“Aurical finds the duo in pop-rock mode, and their cleverness comes through right away.” - M: Music and Musicians

“Things get really interesting on 'Redhead Girl', with a piano style that sounds like a cross between Ben Folds and Tori Amos. The most original and intriguing work on the album, ‘Redhead Girl’ shows Aurical's ability to push the envelope and do it well.” - Wildy’s World

9pm- Sister Lip
Genre: jazzy blues

The ladies of Sister Lip are not ladies that can be easily described. The band’s music is hardly better: if Sister Lip were packaged, it would have a long, long list of ingredients and no preparation instructions. It’s a little bit of jazz; it’s a little bit of blues. It’s one part funk and one part rock with a healthy measure of attitude. It’s a teaspoon of this emotion and a tablespoon of that. Above all else, it’s got a whoooole lotta soul dolloped right on the top, and the package is sealed with a big red kiss.

11pm- Damian Quiñones
Genre: Rock and Roll

For fans of: Funkadelic, WAR, Os Mutantes, Bood, Sweat, and Tears, Willie Colon, Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Akin to a mix tape made from his uncle's old vinyl collection, Damian Quiñones is sonically funky, expansive and colorful. Quiñones songwriting is a heady stew of 60's rock and roll, nuyorican funk, with a nice helping of tropicalia, and Afro-Caribbean sounds to boot. For this performance, Quiñones will be performing solo on acoustic guitar and electric piano.

"Damian Quiñones y Su Conjunto’s new album Gumball Ma-Jumbo - streaming in its entirety online - is a masterpiece of tunesmithing, an intricate mix of oldschool late 60s style psychedelic soul, rock and pop spiced with salsa, luscious horn charts, bubbling keys and nasty guitars."-Lucid Culture

For fans of: Early 20thc. Blues, Greek & otherwise

Music of the rough parts of Athens, c.1928. As the politsmani raid a basement, kicking over the hookah and scattering the crowd, out on the docks a garishly dandified & lovesick thug watches the harbor for a shipment of untaxed cigarettes & weeps into his fist.

8pm- Kenny Young & the Eggplants
Genre: Intergalactic folk-and-roll
For fans of: Fountains of Wayne. Honestly, the Eggplants don’t sound all that much like anyone in particular, but DJs frequently play us alongside other musicians with oddball lyrics and catchy tunes, including They Might Be Giants, Warren Zevon, The Kinks, Robyn Hitchcock, the Ramones, the Flaming Lips, Devo, the B-52s, Jonathan Richman, Violent Femmes, Ian Dury, Nick Lowe, and Life in a Blender. (But we really don’t sound like any of them … and some people think Kenny sounds like Tom Petty!)

Brooklyn’s inimitable Kenny Young and the Eggplants play intergalactic folk-and-roll songs about giant squirrels, scary bits of cheese, aliens, time travel, inebriated crime-solving birds, and malevolent washing machines, among other important topics. Their spaceship has frequently landed in the UK, where they won a prestigious Herald Angel Award for their performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, and where one of their live radio sessions was selected for a Best of the BBC Archives series. In NYC, the Eggplants received an Honorable Mention from Pop Matters for their performance at the CMJ Festival, and they were recognized with a Special Mention in a BMI songwriting competition for their monsterpiece, "The House at Creepy Lake." The most improbable honor for the band so far occurred in the pages of Time Magazine, where the author Alexander McCall Smith included the Eggplants in his "Short List" of favorite artistic discoveries. The Eggplants have recorded five albums, which have been played profusely on local station WFMU, and which have careened onto the Top 30 charts at various other college radio stations across North America.

"The Eggplants mix brainy, funny lyrics with a fine sense of what makes pop music wonderful." -- Dr. Demento

"Gentle insanity with irresistible tunes" -- The Herald

“They mix the wit of Jonathan Richman with the sound of the Nico-era Velvets to create a surreal and satirical gumbo.” -- Sunday Herald

“A wonderful weird band” -- The Scotsman

"Surreal entertainment ... energetic, unpredictable and fun ... There is genius among the Eggplants." -- Sunday Mail

“The naivete Kenny wears on his sleeve is genuine - think of an East Village Brian Wilson, without the money but still tilted in his own wacked-out way.” -- Village Voice

“Giving eloquent voice to the multifaceted neuroses of prolonged adolescence” -- The New York Times

"The most amazing, amusing, wonderful, whacky band in this or any other town." -- Alexander McCall Smith (author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency)

‘Aubergenius!’  (Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales)


"An endearingly oddball trio, carving their singular niche somewhere between whimsy, psychedelia, and classic lo-fi pop." -- The Scotsman

"Brooklyn's finest ... They channel the spirit of Jonathan Richman into a sort of wonky Velvet Underground/Beach Boys hybrid that has to be seen to be believed." -- Sunday Herald

Jacknife Sympathy recorded The Kennel Sessions-EP in 2013 and are currently working on a new EP scheduled for release in early 2014.

10pm- People Skills 
Genre: Psychedelic power-pop
For fans of: The Who, Nirvana, Blind Faith, No Doubt, Cream, Ween, Sly and the Family Stone, Weezer

People Skills are a psychedelic pop rock trio from Brentwood, New Hampshire. They have been shredding the East Coast for more than 3 years, thrilling fans with their soaring, melodic riff-rock pop. The group consists of guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Chelsea Paolini; her brother, drummer Andrew Paolini; and bassist/vocalist Greg Baldi. Their catchy, energetic songs feature precise, dramatic musicianship and effortless cohesion.  They have released two LPs, “People Skills” (2012) and “People Are People Too” (2014), plus the single “Brain Candy” (2014).

“Paolini and the rest of the band are supremely confident musicians. It’s a hard-earned confidence—in the last three years, People Skills have become regular fixtures on the Seacoast scene, playing everywhere and anywhere they can. In a genre characterized by short, catchy songs, People Skills aren’t afraid to indulge in long solos...“People Are People Too” never feels boring, though—the hooks in each song are strong and will keep you coming back for another listen, and another, and so on.” -Larry Clow, The Wire

“Their music flows so well, it feels very natural and effortless, which is obviously not only a product of their talent, but also of how well they know each other.” -Heather Moreau, Seacoast Online

For fans of: Mumford & Sons, Wood Brothers

The band's versatility makes them equally at home whether playing in an intimate club, a large festival stage, or busking on the street.

-"Bright and buttery... flamboyant with a touch of oak...  Kick-ass but not too tart...  a unique brand of bluesy folk gypsy jazz...  straight off the vine... Love them!" -Bonnie Grice, WPPB 88.3 FM, Southampton, NY
-“Django meets Tom Waits chauffeured by a gypsy bandwagon…relaxed, consistently musical, and occasionally whimsical…these guys are a sure bet.” -Torin Anderson, F5 Paper, Wichita, KS
-“Infectious, soulful tunes” – Katie Connor, MOVE Magazine, Columbia, MO

9pm- In Place 
Genre: Indie
For fans of:  Radiohead, The National

The music of In Place is characterized by being deceivingly-detailed, flowing, and logically-developing. As individuals we had found ourselves stagnant while other around us were moving forward. Because of this lack of direction, we began playing music with no other intention than for our own enjoyment. After some time, the music naturally began to focus, become a priority, and the vision became clear. In Place is from Philadelphia.

10pm- Sean Kershaw and the New Jack Ramblers
Sean Kershaw — the Brooklyn-based music artist whose swaggering “high-octane honky-tonk” (NY Times) has thrilled and seduced audiences in New York City, north up to Alaska, and as far south as Australia — is now hoofing it across the Atlantic.  Accompanied by his signature country-rockabilly band, the New Jack Ramblers, Kershaw will tour Europe this summer following the release of his second album, an EP titled “Aussie Sessions,” which Kershaw recently recorded in Melbourne.

The Coney Island Cowboy (the title of Kershaw’s acclaimed debut CD) whose lead vocals and rhythm guitar suggest the whisky-soaked angst of Hank Williams Sr., with a twist, struts out a gritty brand of rockabilly that drives restless boots straight to the dance floor. However, it was a writer for Playgirl magazine who observed that those same boots might just as soon be kicked off and placed under a lover’s bed, after listening to the single “Moonlight Eyes,” Kershaw’s most popular recording to date. In fact, Coney Island Cowboy enjoyed regular airplay in the U.S., Australia and Europe; the latter augurs well for the upcoming summer tour.

Such is the rough-hewn but stubbornly romantic sound produced by this lifelong wanderer who was born in Baltimore, but growing up in a military family, lived overseas and all over the continental U.S.  Early in his career, Kershaw continued to embrace the road by busking throughout the country. Starting out in New Orleans, he headed west to play in Los Angeles and San Francisco, went north up to Seattle, back across to Chicago and St. Louis, and eventually settled in New York.

It was in Brooklyn that Kershaw became a driving force if not the face of a growing country music scene, spurring notices in various high profile media outlets such as the New York Post, New York magazine and Time Out New York, and eventually becoming the cover story of a Village Voice article dedicated to Brooklyn country.

From 1996 through 2003, Kershaw played with a band called the Blind Pharaohs. The rockabilly group developed a plugged-in and loyal following touring up and down the East Coast. But by 2007, having written and continuing to hone a host of original country and rockabilly songs, “Sean Kershaw and the New Jack Ramblers” became Sean’s main musical vehicle.

Depending on the venue, Sean Kershaw and the New Jack Ramblers scale up or down in players, and feature Sean on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, an upright bass, lead guitarist, drums, pedal steel, and occasionally keyboards, banjo, fiddle and the mandolin.

“Audiences that respond to mainstream country music will readily find the influences of Johnny Cash, jump blues and western swing in the New Jack Ramblers’ sound,” comments Sean Kershaw. “But it’s the remnants of my background as a punk rocker, the high-energy that the New Jack Ramblers bring to the stage, and the strange, unexpected tales our songs tell that tend to subvert country purists’ expectations and appeal to an even broader, often younger audience,” continues Kershaw.

Mike O'Malley carries a lot of anger around.  He endeavors to funnel said extra energy into a rollicking, kinetic set of folk songs for drinking, howling, and stomping to.  He would specifically love to howl with you.  On August 29th, he'll be descending on The Way Station to release his debut full-length, Beastie - 10 ragged tracks of acoustic savagery.
