Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears

w/ Blank Range (Doors at 7pm, $15/$17, 21+)

Joe Lewis hails from Austin, TX – the collision center where Southern soul meets mid-western blues and vagabond punk. Unable to keep away from the infectious music scene Austin is infamous for, Joe Lewis soaked it all in and soon found himself purchasing his first guitar while working in a pawnshop. The rest is history.

As a young man from Meridian, Mississippi, Steve Forbert traveled to New York City and played guitar for spare change in Grand Central Station. He vaulted to international prominence with a folk-rock hit, “Romeo’s Tune,” during a time when rootsy rock was fading out and the Ramones, Talking Heads and other New Wave and punk acts were moving in to the public consciousness. Now, Forbert is coming to Club Congress! Come on down for a night of classic rock n roll fun!

Don’t Worry, DJ Sid the Kid will throw in the occasional New Order or Prince hit to help smooth the transition. LET’S PARTY LIKE IT’S 1999.

ZACKEY FORCE FUNK, COUNT BASS D (8pm-2am, $3 (FREE w/ Opti Card), 21+)

This year, HOCO Fest begins with a massive dance party: bringing together the best electronic and alternative club music Tucson has to offer.

HOCO Fest Day 2 features acts that are quintessentially, undeniably Tucson.

HOCO Fest Day 3

w/ The Dusty Chaps & Lando Chill (Doors 6pm, Plaza $15/Club FREE, 21+)

HOCO Fest Day 3 was specifically tailored to showcase the best of Tucson musical past and future with two great—if not completely different—showcases. On the plaza, we have The Dusty Chaps, a seminal honky tonk country swing band based in Tucson, Arizona in the 1970s & early 80s. Maybe only Linda Ronstadt eclipses the Dusty Chaps as far as enduring popularity in the Old Pueblo. In the club we have an evening curated by Lando Chill, Tucson’s newest darling and recent signee to indie-rap giant, Mello Music Group. Lando’s last live band performance at Club Congress was legendary; arguably the best-attended release show in HOCO history.

Matt The Electrician

Matt the Electrician

(Doors at 7pm, Free, 21+)

Despite the name, Matt the Electrician is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and literally thousands of shows. It’s folk music for a modern age, rooted in lyrics that focus on the realities and challenges of the 21st century as opposed to, say, the old-school thrill of hopping trains. Catch this grounding show at Club Congress, there may or may not be some awesome surprise guests….!
