“Reggae’s dance-inspiring, feel-good vibe is universal as are many of Talking Heads’ songs” – Mystic Bowie
“The combination of classic Heads lyrics and caribbean/reggae rhythms is a total home run! Talking Dreads’ sound is tight, and everyone from the lead singer to the band members to the back up singers to the folks selling Talking Dreads merchandise is 100% professional. We had a blast the night of the show and we walked away with a definite bounce in our step. Can’t wait for the next stop on their tour. Definitely going back for more.“
“Yes yes y’all!” – Chris Frantz

INDIGENOUS
Tickets are $20 General Admission.
Seating is first come first serve.
Born and raised on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Indigenous front man Mato Nanji (Ma-TOE NON-gee) dedicates his latest release Time Is Coming (on Blues Bureau International) to the indigenous youth and all young people on the indigenous reservations.

Mato Nanji’s father, the late Greg Zephier, Sr., was a well-known and highly respected spiritual advisor and spokesperson for the International Indian Treaty Council. In addition to this leadership role, he was an accomplished musician and a member of the musical group, The Vanishing Americans. Formed by Greg and his brothers in the ‘60’s, The Vanishing Americans toured nationally and shared bills with such legends as Bonnie Raitt. Besides being heavily influenced by the music his father and uncles were making, Mato was exposed to Greg’s vast collection of blues records by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King. Consequently, Mato embraced and began utilizing his own musical talent at a young age. With the experience, love and wisdom of their father to guide them, Mato, his brother, sister and cousin formed the band Indigenous while in their late teens.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Vegetable Buddies is proud to present Walter Trout! Without a doubt one of the hottest blues guitarist touring today.
https://www.waltertrout.com/
Special guest will be Lance Lopez kicking things off at 9:00.

Tickets are $30 GA or $40 for a guaranteed seat.

Walter Trout is the beating heart of the modern blues rock scene, respected
by the old guard, revered by the young guns, and adored by the fans who shake his hand after
the show each night. After five decades in the game, Trout is a talismanic figure and part of the
glue that bonds the blues community together, at a time when the wider world has never
been so divided.
He’s also the only artist with the vision, talent and star-studded address book to pull off
a project on the scale of We’re All In This Together. “It was quite a piece of work to get this
record together,” he admits. “But I guess I have a lot of friends, y’know…?”

Before you even hear a note, We’re All In This Together has your attention. Drafting fourteen A-list stars – including Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, John Mayall and Randy Bachman– and writing an original song for each, Trout has made the most tantalizing album of the year,
and found solace after a run of solo albums that chronicled his near-fatal liver disease of 2014. “Now was the right time for this record,” he says. “Battle Scars [2016] was such an intense piece of work, written with tears coming down my face. I needed a break from that, to do something
fun and light-hearted. This album was joyous for me.”

Lady Parts Justice League Set To Take The Country By Storm Again in
Vagical Mystery Tour 2018
Lady Parts Justice League Will Hit The Road Again This Summer for an 8-City National Comedy, Music & GOTV Tour

Lady Parts Justice League (LPJL), the comedy- driven reproductive rights organization announces their summer tour bringing their unique combination of comedy, activism, and on-the-ground support to abortion clinics and audiences across the nation. After a wildly successful debut last summer, the 2018 Vagical Mystery Tour (VMT) returns with an even more ambitious national tour that promises not only to make audiences laugh and dance, but the VMT performers will work with fans to get them to become activists in their own communities.
Hosted by Lizz Winstead, LPJL Founder and the Co-Creator of The Daily Show, the Vagical Mystery Tour will travel to eight cities over the course of eight weeks beginning June 12. Lizz Winstead and her LPJL team will be joined on the road by various special guests. Each show will not only present some of the most hilarious and sought after comedians in the business, but will include an informal post-show talkback with abortion providers and activists, who will inform the audience about what is at stake for abortion rights in their state, and offer tangible ways the audiences can roll up their sleeves to fight back.
But The Vagical Mystery Tour is not just performances.
At each stop, Winstead and the other VMT performers will extend their activism by doing direct action work with local clinics; everything from escorting patients or bringing the staff a hot meal to lawn care and sometimes even remodeling. And because the 2018 VMT takes place during an election year, they will also partner with local non partisan grassroots organizers to help get out the vote. MORE ABOUT LADY PARTS JUSTICE LEAGUE
Lady Parts Justice League infuses humor into reproductive rights spaces while also dropping some knowledge and activism into our pop culture and social lives, inspiring folks who have not been active in the feminist and reproductive rights movements to get on board. A rapid response creative production team made up of comedians, writers, and activists, The League is on call 24/7 producing videos,
artistic memes and creating national actions that respond instantly to the breaking news surrounding reproductive rights issues. Part of LPJL’s mission is to support and raise awareness about independent abortion providers who bear the brunt of anti-abortion legislation and harassment. Several times a year, the
League goes on the road to perform comedy shows in a USO format bringing entertainment and love to these clinics and their communities. They also provide elbow grease at the clinics themselves, including anything from bringing lunch to building a fence to planting bushes to block protesters. Understanding that reproductive rights issues vary by race, class, and gender identity, Lady Parts Justice League is committed to diversity by creating content that fosters a
multicultural, inclusive experience within the reproductive rights movement.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Vegetable Buddies and Alligator Records are proud to present Selwyn Birchwood! Friday August 24th @ 9:00 PM
With his fiery guitar and lap steel playing, his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs and gritty, unvarnished vocals, Birchwood is among the most extraordinary young stars in the blues. Birchwood’s high-octane blues—at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute—are played with passion and honest emotion. With his band feeding off his drive and exuberance, the striking 6’3” young man with his trademark Afro roams the stage (often barefoot), ripping out memorable guitar licks with ease, his soulful, rocks-and-gravel vocals firing up the crowd.

Birchwood, who attacks his guitar and lap steel with searing intensity, wrote and produced all 13 songs on PICK YOUR POISON. His richly detailed, hard-hitting originals run the emotional gamut from the humorously personal My Whiskey Loves My Ex to the gospel-inflected Even The Saved Need Saving to the hard truths of the topical Corporate Drone and Police State to the existential choice of the title track. The cutting-edge songs are made all the more impactful by Birchwood’s gruff vocals, his untamed musicianship and his band’s seemingly telepathic accompaniment. “I write and sing what I know,” says Birchwood, whose innovations are as expansive as his influences. “This album has a broad reach. It’s for young, old and everyone in between.”

Since the 2014 release of his Alligator Records debut, Don’t Call No Ambulance, Birchwood’s meteoric rise from playing small Florida clubs to headlining international festival stages is nothing short of phenomenal, as he continues to set the contemporary blues world on fire. The album received the BLUES MUSIC AWARD and LIVING BLUES CRITICS’ AWARD for BEST DEBUT ALBUM Of 2014, and he won the 2015 Blues Blast Rising Star Award. Selwyn and his band have crisscrossed the U.S. and Europe repeatedly, delivering unforgettable live performances. Rave reviews ran in publications from Rolling Stone to The Wall Street Journal, from The Chicago Tribune to The San Francisco Chronicle.
Selwyn Birchwood is forging new directions for the blues. The Washington Post calls him a “tough, indelibly modern next generation bluesman.” The Wall Street Journal says he is “fiery and original.” The hard-hitting, cutting-edge songs on Pick Your Poison, along with his incendiary live performances, prove without a doubt his status as the blues’ most sensational young talent.
