Wolves With Virginia (7:30-8:15 p.m.)
A transplant from Los Angeles, California, Ryley Northrop and his band bring powerful songwriting, soulful, emotionally drenched vocals, and driving guitars.
The MilBillies (8:30-9:15 p.m.)
Trading vocals like a fifth of bourbon and solos like a bull on a rope, The MilBillies sling high-energy bluegrass stripped raw with Americana grit.
Wise Jennings (9:30-10:30 p.m.)
A Punk, Psycho-billy, Alt-Americana, Outlaw Country burrito if there was such a thing and you could listen to it.
J.R. & The Strangers (10:45-midnight)
Rolling through the heartland of Americana rust, J.R. & The Strangers plays outlaw folk music, rooted in the blues and on a mission to stay weird.
