TICKET HOLDERS WITH A TICKET TO JC BROOKS ARE WELCOME TO STAY FOR SINFERNO CABARET THE SAME NIGHT! (10PM)

JC BROOKS makes soul-infused, genre-bending music that is energetic and kinetically charged. The grab-the-listener-at-all-costs mashup manifesto has been captured to a T on the band’s new joint,. The Neon Jungle, which is set for an April 7, 2017 release via Rock Ridge Music. Their soul mashup version of Wilco’s “I’m Trying to Break Your Heart” was a nationwide jame released by Bloodshot Records as JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, but with the new album they have dropped “the Uptown Sound” but continue as one powerful live band. Brooks himself describes The Neon Jungle as an album-length depiction of “one crazy, incredible night out.” JC Brooks has made a career out of delivering the goods, from club stages to the biggest festivals in the US and Europe. The live version of The Neon Jungle will be flowing from a stage near you.

“Enveloping stage presence and and palpable charisma.”  - Rolling Stone

“JC Brooks looks and performs like a cross between Chuck Berry and H.R. of Bad Brains in their prime, but his skintight R&B and post-punk soul upend expectation of a retro act.” - The Washington Post

Guttermouth is a punk rock band formed in Huntington Beach, CA. Guttermouth has released nine full-length studio albums and two live albums and have toured extensively, including performances on the Vans Warped Tour. The band is infamous for their outrageous lyrics and behavior, which are deliberately explicit, offensive and intended to shock, though usually in a humorous and sarcastic manner. This behavior has sometimes resulted in high-profile problems for the band, such as being banned from performing in Canada for eighteen months and leaving the 2004 Warped Tour amidst controversy over their political views and attitudes towards other performers. In a time where bands take "breaks" in order to have reunion tours along with all types of marketing gimmicks, Guttermouth continues to tour much of the year with no plans on stopping and has proven to be one of the hardest working punk bands still together. In July 2016, the band released the EP "Got It Made" under Rude Records/Bird Attack Records and will have another studio release out by the end of the year.

Band Members:

Mark Adkins-Vocals

Justin VanWestbroek-Drums

Wheeler Walker, Jr. is a country singer and songwriter who wants to bring back the classic honky tonk sound and the glory days of outlaw country music, and he's determined to do so by writing songs that would have gotten him yanked off the Grand Ol' Opry broadcast in a matter of seconds. Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, Walker spent decades on the outskirts of the music business through the '80s and '90s, playing small clubs and earning an insider's reputation as a talented songwriter. But as Nashville began embracing a more polished sound, Walker found it increasingly difficult to be heard in Music City. He landed record deals at three different major labels, but according to the artist, his music sounded too strong and his lyrics were too bold for country radio, and his habit of dropping mild expletives into this tunes led to him being dropped from all three labels without the completed albums ever seeing the light of day. By the mid-2010s, Walker had lost his patience with playing by Nashville's rules, and after meeting producer Dave Cobb, who has worked with the likes of Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson, they went into the studio and cut the album Walker always wanted to make. The album in question was titled Redneck Shit, and its first single quickly became a cult item that racked up impressive airplay on satellite radio and plenty of online spins. However, the song, titled "Fuck You, Bitch," was just as lyrically offensive as the title would suggest, which meant mainstream country radio ignored it at all costs. In February 2016, Redneck Shit was released by Pepper Hill Records (distributed by Thirty Tigers), and with songs like "Beer, Weed, Cooches," "Sit on My Face," and "Can't Fuck You Off My Mind," the album had something to offend nearly anyone, and Walker seemed poised to finally become a star in Nashville, despite his boundless contempt for the country music establishment and a terminal case of potty mouth. If Wheeler Walker, Jr.'s story sounds too strange to be true, that's because it is; Walker's long career and colorful back-story, as well as his music, was all dreamed up by comedian and comedy writer Ben Hoffman, who writes and sings Walker's songs and owns the trademark to his alter ego. Hoffman briefly hosted his own show on Comedy Central, The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman, and has written for the TV shows Archer, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and InfoMania. While Wheeler Walker, Jr. may be a fake, the Redneck Shit album and the "Fuck You, Bitch" singles are very much real, and Hoffman has given numerous interviews to music publications in character as Walker, sharing his apparently sincere opinions about the sorry state of mainstream country music, as well as Walker's epic past. ~ Mark Deming

Growing up in an isolated, coastal town of British Columbia, Canada, Elke Robitaille  spent her formative years playing guitar and writing songs inspired by the dreams she had of exploring the world beyond her small town. At 18, with guitar in hand, she boarded a southbound train headed for Los Angeles to start a new creative chapter that would propel her into a professional music career as a singer-songwriter and folk artist.

Over the span of a decade, with a determined DIY mentality, Robitaille attended the renowned Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California; completed two national independent tours of the United

States and Canada; released three full-length studio albums; and fulfilled a four-month performance contract with Princess Cruises.

Throughout her career, Robitaille has played at venues ranging from farmers markets and festivals; to house concerts and fundraisers – performing in 25 States and 6 Provinces in Canada. A few notable stages have included: Pacific National Exhibition (Vancouver, BC),

Hotel Café (Los Angeles), and Rose Festival City Fair (Portland). Her music has received international radio airplay, and has been featured in various publications including Music Connection, I’m Music Magazine, The Wyoming Tribune, Vortex Magazine, and PQ Monthly.

Currently based in Portland, Oregon, Robitaille’s songwriting influence has evolved from simplistic folk-rock into a more sophisticated sound, incorporating elements of Americana, Bluegrass, and Alt-Country - all of which can be heard on In The End (2016) - the fourth studio release from Elke Robitaille. This six-track EP features a dynamic assortment of original songs, showcasing a subtle yet polished production quality, and highlighting an array of traditional folk instrumentation including acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and pedal steel. In The End boasts a talented medley of studio musicians including: Timothy Snider (Medicine For The People), JP Downer (Christian Burghardt), and Beak Wing (Rosi Golan; Carina Round).

After releasing the new EP, Elke partnered with Totem Entertainment to release an official music video for the first single: “Wait For Me”

Elke may not travel by train as much as she used to, but this troubadour can be found touring regularly around the Pacific Northwest, Midwest, Canada, and Southern regions – still driven by her desire to explore the world through music.
