We will have some exciting news to share with you on Monday! We are going to announce the full schedule for the Throwdown. So stay tuned…
Grace Potter, lead singer of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals was featured in the new exhibit in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame called “Right Here, Right Now.” The exhibit features contemporary artists who have had a major impact on the Rock and Roll landscape. She is featured alongside artists such as the Black Keys, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars.
We’re so excited to have Hurray for the Riff Raff as part of this year’s Throwdown!
"The dark Americana band is led by Alynda Lee Segarra, a young, Bronx-raised Puerto Rican who developed her musical voice by riding the rails as a teenage punk before settling down in New Orleans. With inspirations that range from Woody Guthrie to Bikini Kill, Segarra brings real worldliness to these songs; it shouldn’t be long before everybody knows her name." - KEXP
American Aquarium will be joining the party on 9/6! This Raleigh, NC outfit has been hitting the road very hard in support of their excellent album BURN.FLICKER.DIE.
"There’s nothing new about what American Aquarium do; it’s the way that they do it that makes BURN.FLICKER.DIE so damn good. Singer BJ Barham has an ageless, world-weary/angry voice and the guitar licks he exchanges with Ryan Johnson are as good as anything I’ve heard in 20 years. Plus, Whit Wright’s pedal steel will bring a tear to a glass eye if he’s not careful.” - No Depression
