Countdown to Bonnaroo – 26 Days – Artist of the Day: Black Joe Lewis

14 May

Holy Bonnaroo! Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears are going to make some new fans. From the first 10 seconds I heard “Sugarfoot” I was hooked as a BJL fan (Funny enough I discovered them while looking up some Donavon Frankenreiter info on the Lost Highways site a few years ago). Anyways, what can I say about this Austin based band except they will blow your minds with a gritty rock show. Having seen them half a dozen times live, they get better every time and are currently touring in support of their new record, Scandalous.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 27 Days – Artist of the Day: Smith Westerns

13 May

Smith Westerns was a complete surprise to me as part of the line-up but I’m thrilled they will be performing.  Fresh off the heels of their second release, Dye It Blonde, the Chicago group has been gaining steam all throughout 2011.  As we wrote about back in back in January, with an upbeat retro rock and pop sound (think 60s and glam rock eras), they kill it with whinny guitar riffs and not complex lyrics.

Their set is scheduled for Sunday, June 12 at 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Countdown to @Bonnaroo: 28 Days – Artist of the Day: The Band of Heathens

12 May

Everything is bigger in Texas and the same should be said for The Band of Heathens as the Austin based group is continuing a rise to stardom.  They are not a new band by any means but I only wish more people would know these guys, a little slice of Americana if you please.

They’ll be playing one of the Café stages on Friday, June 10 and time is TBD right now.  See you at the show!

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 29 Days – Artist of the Day: GIVERS

11 May

Stoked that GIVERS has earned a slot at Bonnaroo this summer.  The rising band from Lafayette, Louisiana already rocked SXSW earlier this year and are set to drop their debut LP In Light just a few days before performing at Bonnaroo (June 10 is their date FYI).    Since hearing “Up Up Up” this has been one of my favorite songs for the sheer good vibes and energy you get from listening to it.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 30 Days – Artist of the Day: Walk the Moon

10 May

I’m really excited to check out the Ohio based band, Walk the Moon next month.  I was recently introduced to them and have instantly become a fan.  Check out the video below for their song “Anna Sun” off their debut release i want i want.
