Every Sunday 9 Grace Kelley All Day
Songs from her void. Grace Kelly All Day brings a patched and welded sound to street blues and free folk music; like the sun gave up on one of earth's hemispheres. And one was grandfathered in forever. And those two hemispheres had an endless war. Both sides never quit, and never won.
Every Monday 11 Pete Lanctot
New York Music Daily writes that, "Pete Lanctot personifies pretty much everything good about New York's most happening music scene" His songs are surreal and mysterious narratives featuring sordid casts of characters who’s origins are vague, and seem equally likely to be found in present day New York City, a Memphis juke joint of the 1920s or hitchhiking a depression era plains state highway. Steeped in American traditions of blues, folk and country, and backed by the Stray Dogs, a talented cast of musicians and improvisers Lanctot’s music is original, rabble rousing, heartbreaking and soul searching, always exploring the non-traditional without relying on reproduction.

  10:30 Ife and Danny
On stage and in the studio, Ifé & Danny make living, breathing music – an unlikely, organic sound born of two unique perspectives that fate somehow intertwined. Pure, but not always so simple. Each accomplished artists and composers in their own right, Ifé Mora (vocals) and Danny Blume (guitar, vocals) come together to make music born of their own deep experiences. The spaces in their haunting, earthy songs hold the echoes of ancient tones: Of Delta blues, of frontier ballads. Of son, of modal Appalachia. Of the shake and rattle of first-generation rock’n’roll. That resonance underscores bold, insightful songcraft that forge new pathways into timeless terrain.

Austin Based Songwriter comes to Pete's for a solo performance in support of his latest release Faded Photos. "Weber remains a master of evocative metaphor unraveling in the uneasy rift of his whiskey-burnt tenor." -Austin Chronicle
  9 The Me Oh My Ohs
The Me Oh My Ohs bring together two unique voices in stunning, sister-style harmony, crooning country classics and lively originals. Hilary Hawke on upright bass, and Abby Hollander on guitar. The band features the virtuosic soloing of Rick Snell on electric guitar. Upbeat and danceable, country swing and honky tonk!
  10 Stephen Bartolomei
Stephen Bartolomei began as a pensive songwriter over a decade ago, performing under the name Mal Madrigal. With the release of his fourth record,All The Ghosts, Bartolomei has dropped the previous moniker, playing under his own name with comrades as an accurate label for the group of long time friends and musical collaborators who join him. Recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, All The Ghosts is the most genuine representation of the musical talent of the band to date. Bartolomei's songwriting escapes easy categorization, nimbly shifting from lush melodic folk to electrified minor key moodiness. In its spare moments the music is intimate, in its crescendos, powerful. Bartolomei’s voice is compelling yet humble, in service to communicating the song. Stephen has shared the stage with notable artists including Calexico, Centro-Matic, Bright Eyes, Nina Nastasia, Destroyer, Simon Joyner, Richard Buckner, and many others.
  11 Ember Schrag
"She’s a nimble guitarist, a gripping storyteller, clever lyricist and a strong, dynamic singer with a direct, clear, matter-of-fact voice. She originally hails from Nebraska and now makes New York her home. And while she’s far from unknown in the dark folk demimonde, her writing transcends that genre: she’s one of the most individualistic and interesting songwriters in any style of music." - New York Music Daily

To call Jamie Block a singer-songwriter is to underestimate the importance of storytelling in his songs. Influenced by the Beat poets, he tells stories of Village gentrification, fake punk rockers and the illusion of an easy marriage — songs with lyrics that ring true because of Jamie's own life experience.

MON 9/15
8 Aotearoa
A devastating sound in the rhythmic tradition of all jackhammers before them, AOTEAROA has reclaimed the groove from the age of fingertip music. With a funk that crawls up rusty from the thighs, it cracks like hot marble on the back edge of the downbeat. Primitive and thick, it crawls out from wooden instruments conjuring bone-dry melody and cast-iron groove propelling all bodies forward. Ever-raw, e ver-cool, ever-changing it was cast in the swamp, forged in the city and spit out on the interstate to lope it’s way across the darkened stages of North America. This is guitar and drum dynamite plugged deep into the doomed mountainside of your hips.
9 Cassandra Sun
Ecclectic pop-oriented rock incorporating furious, prog-influenced drumming, bass as a counterpoint, and textured, rhytmic guitar. Dead in the middle of a spectrum spanning Incubus and Fall Out Boy.

  11 Yazan
Yazan is a born and bred New Yorker, raised on salty East River breezes and pizza slices, video game arcades and street art everywhere. Equally inspired by juke joint heroes of country blues (RL Burnside, Robert Johnson) and sophisticated songsters of the north (Neil Young, Bob Dylan), Yazan blends the visceral and the poignant with his dynamic voice and guitar playing. His sound is as colorful and soulful as the city that reared him: he is part urban storyteller, part guitar wizard, and all explorer of the universal spirit.

With an open-minded ear for good storytelling and without bias for genre, Carl pools his influences from a wide variety of artists. A musical raggedy man of sorts, he is most comfortable with guitar in hand and blues harp in the rack playing for 1 to 1000.
