“Sounds like: Faulkner’s short stories brought to life in hauntingly beautiful instrumental melodies and almost-eerie vocals. War Jacket’s lyrics evoke a sort of sad nostalgia beckoning listeners to sit and stew in memory and reflection of a different time.”
— Cory Bordonaro (Southern Living)
“Alligood’s mournful tones lay down wry commentary on our human condition, always with penetrating clarity and truthfulness.”
— Kevan Breitinger (Studio101.com)

VENUE: Moonlight on the Mountain
TIME: 7:30 pm
BAND: The Onlies / Matt Sanderlin
“A cynical embittered listener tends to turns to quicksand under the strains of consistent persuasion. The Onlies will bring you to the bright side. One must simply love organic acoustic music that is firmly planted in the country from which is sprang. This Lafayette duo is a wonderful fresh approach to lovely love music between lovers.”
“Patience seems to be the main ingredient here, refusing to settle for a sub-par representation of his hard work Sanderlin’s commitment to putting out a great album, recorded with vinyl transfer in mind, is what sets Lovelorn apart from other alternative acoustic singer songwriters.”

VENUE: The Nick
TIME: 10:00 pm
BAND: Ultimo Hombre / Thothamon / D.A.M.N. / BoneJackal
From Ultimo Hombre bio: The 100% no bullshit approach to heavy music. Crushing riffs with devastating Soul. A fuzzed out, tuned down, doom sledging groove machine.
From Thothamon bio: Thothamon started in July of 2010 with Colt McCormick doing guitars and vocals and John Bella handling bass duties. After many months of practicing and song writing, another guitarist, Max Ryan, and a full time drummer has been found, Patrick Foote. Unfortunately there has been a new lineup change with the departure of Max Ryan and Patrick Foote and the recruitment of Said Lopez on the drums. In May 2011, vocalist Cory Price was added to the crew. Now the band is looking to start spreading Doom to the masses. Doom Over the World!!!!!!!!!
“Bonejackal plays rock and roll, no vocals, just raw to the nerve UFO rock and roll. Heavily influenced by classic rock the trio also blends elements of early psychedelic acts such as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath and the proto-punk sounds of the Stooges, and the MC5.”
