Adyn Townes
Adyn Townes' website bio has us ready to dig this sweet house show, held at 30 First Avenue: "At the place where endings become beginnings, you’ll find Adyn Townes. He turned a fall into the ocean and months of recovery into his jumping off point. His music is challenging. Alternative indie-folk with raw and honest lyrics. Like finding your feet just before you fall, his songwriting is the gravity that pulls you back to earth." more deets

The Barr Brothers w/Michael Feuerstack

The Barr Brothers, Brad and Andrew, stand out from the pack of sun-bleached Americana artists by recruiting celebrated experimental harpist Sarah Pagé into their band. Together the three craft sprawling sounds so big, they even filled the Grand Canyon (not a hyperbole—the band performed at the canyon's edge in 2012). Rounding out the bill? Sappyfest fave Michael Feuerstack (pictured, right), whose soft songs will 100 percent melt your heart of stone. more deets
