-Paul Griffiths & The Scofflaw 3: “Just In Time”
-Gayle Lynn and the Hired Hands: “Twirl Back Home”
-Deborah Crooks : “Department of the West”
Paul Griffiths is a San Francisco based group "...known and widely admired for such timeless classic songs as 'Headless Body in a Topless Bar'...
Full of wit, often morbid humor, and charm...Paul Griffiths is a superb songwriter, and an endearing performer. Do not miss!"
Novelist Peter Orner said:
“Paul Griffiths is a song writer who cuts direct to the bone. Melodic, romantic, un-romantic, funny, mournful. How my going to miss you if you never go away?... She checked his wrists for stigmata...There was a strapless sandal, there was a backless dress...I could quote the man all day. Bottom line is this: Griffiths may seem to be a good natured truth-teller (and he is) but he's also fearless as hell. A timeless voice for our berserk times”.
Gayle Lynn and The Hired Hands
San Francisco-based Gayle Lynn and the Hired Hands is known for its masterful musicianship featuring nostalgia-tinged pedal steel, ringing guitars, bouncing upright bass, beautiful harmonies and Gayle Lynn’s own arrestingly honest songwriting. The band's latest LP, "Twirl Back Home", showcases a unique blend of country, acoustic singer-songwriter folk and classic rock - all with a touch of warm ‘jam band’ energy. and a definite dash of twang.

Deborah's music draws on folk, rock, and Americana, as well as her study of writing, natural history and travels in India, and is often compared to Lucinda Williams and The Cowboy Junkies. She’s released several CDs and EPs of critically noted original music. Regularly performing throughout the US, her music has appeared the PBS Series Road Trip Nation and several compilations including the Songwriters from the Fog Compilation V1. She just released a new 11-song collection, The Department of the West.
SARAH BETHE NELSON
DOORS 7PM ~ SHOW 7:30PM ~ $10
Jess Cornelius’ latest single, “No Difference,” was featured by NPR’s All Songs Considered as well as Paste Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, Hype Machine and Uproxx, who called it “a striking stateside introduction.” Part fatalistic resignation, part zen-leaning self-help mantra —and showcasing Cornelius's uniquely shape-shifting vocals— it was added to Gorilla vs Bear’s Best Songs of 2019 playlist and Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, as well as reaching #1 on Australia’s AMRAP Community Radio
Now based in LA, New Zealand-born and raised Jess Cornelius grew up musically in Australia, where she released three critically acclaimed albums with her Melbourne-based project Teeth & Tongue, receiving nominations for the Australian Music Prize and a J-Award in 2016. In 2017 she stepped away from the Teeth & Tongue moniker and released the minimal and stripped-back ‘Nothing is Lost’ EP under her own name before embarking on a US-wide tour with Paul Kelly.
SARAH BETHE NELSON
There is a pulsing radiance resonating from Sarah Bethe Nelson’s aptly titled third studio album, Weird Glow. You can hear it right from the first cut. “Desert Song” opens with instantly catchy electric guitar riffs – the ragged old amp distortion almost seems to be growling alongside her gauzy vocals in a beauty-and-beast contrast. There are other passages where her breathy singing recalls moments of bygone 1990s indie rock. The transcendent and catchy “Too Rich” invokes memories of the British C86 sound crosspollinated with the ethereal dream-pop of the same era.
Throughout this alluring album, Sarah Bethe’s native California roots vine upward and out toward the sunshine. With its subtle guitar jangle, delicately descending melodies, and romantic lyrics, the title-track taps into veins of yesteryear’s West Coast canyon-rock sound. In a live setting, Nelson and longtime bandmate Rusty Miller play together with an extra sensory perception in their communication that sounds like they’re reading each other’s musical minds.
