G. Love & the Special Sauce w/ Ethan Tucker at The Top Hat Lounge
7:30 PM
Description: The enigmatically smooth Garrett “G. Love” Dutton is one of Philadelphia’s funkiest performers of laid back, alternative hip-hop blues (a genre he helped define). As an insatiable musical omnivore, G. Love somehow manages to synthesize his iconic influences by shedding their layers to find that harmonic convergence where song and listener bare their souls to each other speaking nothing but the raw-boned truth. G. Love mines the sonic ore of his heroes only to emerge with a fresh lode of precious stones.

Friday 4/11

Kitchen Dwellers at the Top Hat Lounge
10:00 PM
Description: Kitchen Dwellers formed three years ago below the Bridger Mountains with the sizzle of afternoon breakfast and the warmth of Irish coffee brewing in the kitchen. What began as a trio, Shawn Swain, Joe Funk, and Kyle Shelstad began writing music and playing traditionals searching for originality and occasionally, other life forms. Torrin Daniels was quickly added on Banjo and the band began playing shows around Bozeman, Montana. They added Jesse Bulter on fiddle just in time to hit the road for Colorado and complete their sound. The Kitchen Dwellers have shared the stage with high profile artists like Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, the Deadly Gentlemen, Head for the Hills , Town Mountain, Pete Kartsounes, and WhiteWater Ramble.
