Future Islands believe in true love, you can tell that because their songs speak through our lives. It’s as if their music has always been with us, soundtracking every great hope, dawning realization and broken promise. Every fond embrace, each leap of faith. Over the last eight years Baltimore’s most quixotic and emotionally involving trio have maintained an admirable level of skill and pace, never slowing down for the corners. It’s vocalist Samuel T. Herring, William Cashion (bass, guitars), and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming, guitars) who find themselves responsible. Their sound is at once beguiling and irresistible. It’s one part melancholic, one part euphoric; full of animated bass lines, robust drum machines and questing keyboards, all set off by Sam’s remarkably distinct, soaring vocals.

WHEN: Saturday, March 29, 2014 – Dinner Service 5:00 PM, Show 7:45 PM

More About The Judy Chops: The Judy Chops have been an indomitable force in the VA music scene since 2008. Averaging over 150 shows a year, this high-energy Americana group has been wowing audiences throughout the Mid-Atlantic, and beyond. From their numerous festival appearances, to their opening spots for acts like Lake Street Dive, Miss Tess & the Talkbacks, David Mayfield Parade,  and J.P. Harris & the Tough Choices the Chops have proven themselves to be consummate musicians, and performers. The band’s sound is built around strong three part harmony vocals, acoustic guitar and banjolele, searing electric guitar and fiddle solos, and a unique rhythm section featuring upright bass, and cocktail drums, with the occasional horn player to round out the mix.

More About Sally Rose Band: The Sally Rose band is a duop, honky-tonk music machine. Led by vivacious front woman Sally Rose, the family band tells stories. Catherine “Shootin Moon” Monnes sews in colorful textures with cello and electric fiddle. Sweet Pete Stallings adds undeniable funk/punk undertones on electric guitar and co writes a handful of the songs. Benjamin Jensen and Chris Dammann tighten the mix with a jazz influenced rhythm section. Together, mother and daughter sing haunting, blood harmonies that intertwine seamlessly.

Armed with a desire to leave a large impact with a small footprint, Guerilla Tactics initiated their current musical project in the depths of space. Their highly improvisational music uses live sampling informed by good musicianship and the raw nature of the Blues and the Guitar to make music that resonates and moves. Ranging from pop up funk party to lounge experience, this duo tries to keep it fresh and fun.

April 1st, 2013, Guerillas Do Gorillaz performed the cartoon band’s debut album. Wielding kazoos and combining acoustic and electronic instruments with beautiful results, the eight piece band packed the house and put on a nearly perfect show with inspired takes on the seminal body of work. The duo will reprise their ongoing tribute to the vast eclectic musical landscape created by the Gorillaz, collaborating again with a large cast of local talent on the Southern’s stage on April 5th and calling upon local hip hop visionaries, the Beetnix, to add their energy and take this exploration to a different level.
