Sarah Shook & The Disarmers - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Sarah Shook & The Disarmers
Sarah Shook & The Disarmers is a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons. Songs with self-explanatory self-deprecation, "Fuck Up", tangled in with a portrayal of a doomed relationship dripping with sarcasm,"The Nail", are bastioned by the subtleties of a bar patron considering taking a chance on a stranger in title track, "Sidelong".

When Shook's first band, Sarah Shook & The Devil, broke up after a solid three year plus run, Shook and her guitarist, Eric Peterson, continued to meet, practice, and plan. In late 2013 they put together brief stint called The Dirty Hands which ended after a handful of shows. The project they were looking for soon arrived with the addition of former Two Dollar Pistols' frontman, John Howie Jr., (now frontman for John Howie Jr. & the Rosewood Bluff) as drummer. Sarah Shook & the Disarmers was born.
Shook and chief engineer of Manifold Recording Studios, Ian Schreier, had worked together some years before when he supervised intern Mario Bianchi recording the Devil's seven song EP simply titled, Seven. Shook and Schreier had been discussing creating a full length album together for an age and, finally, during the first weekend of April, 2015, it happened. After nearly a decade of playing solo or fronting a band, Shook released her first full-length album, Sidelong, on October 16, 2015, at the Cat's Cradle Back Room in Chapel Hill, NC.
Rylan Brooks - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Rylan Brooks
RYLAN BROOKS is a Country western band from America, U.S.A. Founding
members Nate Rylan and Chris Brooks started out hauling cargo up and
down I-95, but now they're delivering original Country music with a
dose of good-natured humor all across the nation. Their live music
and performances are lighthearted, irreverent, and packed with energy.
The songs are memorable and influenced by the sound of 60's & 70's
country music while pulling ahead into their own edgy, unique take on
things. They'll take you back to a time when Country was COUNTRY, but
they'll leave you with plenty of NEW COUNTRY CLASSICS to add to your
fancy streaming apps.

Nate Rylan and Chris Brooks’ works have been featured by Verizon, HBO,
MTV, VH1, EPIX, ESPN, WWE, Bellator, US Open, The CW, EAS Sports
Nutrition, CBS, and more; written about in popular music blogs like
Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, StereoStickMan; and performed at big
events such as SXSW.

Originally setting out to be the first officially recognized Space
Truckers, RYLAN BROOKS found they had a knack for writing incredible
tunes while on the road. They penned their first song together,
"Living For Today", while in a Georgia motel room. "We were listening
to a lot music like Jerry Reed, Steve Goodman, and Kris Kristofferson
on the job" Rylan remembered, "along with newer stuff like Dallas
Moore, Ryan Bingham, and, of course, Wheeler Walker, Jr., and we were
thinking there ain't nothing better than this....but we might as well
try!" Brooks heard the sound in his head immediately, "it’s outlaw
mixed with some funny, mixed with some ugly...that's RYLAN BROOKS!
Look, we all go through the same sh*t - might as well sing and laugh
about it. IT’S FUNNY BUT IT’S NOT A JOKE.” And that's the exact
attitude they take on stage with songs like NOBODY LOVES ME LIKE
laugh, they can break your heart!
