We couldn’t be more excited for the show this Wednesday. It’s a super line up with Jess Williamson and Mirror Travel from Austin, Ziema by way of Brooklyn, and Tucson’s own The Wanda Junes and Jess Matsen. The best part about it all? No cover!
Come join us for this FREE show on the plaza put on by EL TAMBO. La Inedita is band that blends an inspiring new mix of dancehall, hip hop, and Chicha (a Peruvian cumbia style) in their high-energy live sets!
The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music – a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.
Good Old War will release their fourth studio album and first on Nettwerk Records, Broken Into Better Shape on June 30th. Produced by Jason Lehning (Mat Kearney, Dolly Parton), and featuring lead single “Tell Me What You Want From Me,” it follows critically acclaimed Come Back As Rain, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers, and led to national TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! & Conan. Good Old War has earned the loyalty of an ever-expanding fan base thanks to their captivating live shows touring along side a diverse group of artists including Alison Krauss, Guster, Brandi Carlile and Dr. Dog.
Holy Wave from Austin, TX make their triumphant return the to Hotel Congress this Tuesday. They will be joined by Tucson psych lords The Myrrors and Daycones for this FREE early week outer body experience, don’t miss it!
Strangers to the touring life refer to it as “living the dream,” while generally the ones actually doing the touring see it more as living in a dream. The difference is subtle to the uninitiated, yet is intimate to Nate Brenner, AKA Naytronix, who has spent much of the past four years touring the world as bassist for the mighty tUnE-yArDs. Consider Naytronix’s second full-length, Mister Divine (2015, City Slang), his treatise on the subject, which sees him turning from the disjointedly funky party dance anthems of his debut Dirty Glow (2012, Plug Research) to a surrealist stream of consciousness poignancy.
Los Angeles natives, Bad Suns, are pleased to announce the release of their debut album, Language & Perspective. Comprised of eleven tracks, Language & Perspective moves effortlessly from start to finish showcasing the band’s stadium ready anthems and undeniably catchy hooks. Here’s your chance to see them performing the new album live at the Hotel Congress, get your tickets NOW before it’s too late.
Los Angeles-based songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that’s truly international. Drawing from her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing, her music fuses styles and languages, taking the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the lands of gypsy jazz, Chinese 1940’s swing, international folk, and into the wilderness of her imagination.
PIPELiGHTS return to the Hotel Congress this Saturday for a FREE/21+ performance. The power lady quartet has been turning heads in Tucson since forming in summer 2015 and we couldn’t be more excited to be hosting their highly anticipated album release party! They will be joined by La Cerca and Baptista for this special event, see you there!
We’re supremely stoked to welcome back one of our favorite bands: DEERHOOF. From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they’ve become one of indie music’s most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.
Metal shows truly don’t get much better than this Sunday night at Hotel Congress with Dragged Into Sunlight from United Kingdom, Arizona’s own super band Gatecreeper, the always punishing Primitive Man from Denver, and last but not least Salt Lake Cities’ finest Cult Leader. Make sure to get tickets in advance for this stacked bill.
When we last left David Cohn (Serengeti) and Yoni Wolf, it was 2011—the year of the Rabbit, the year of Occupy Wall Street, and their first collaborative album, Serengeti’s Family & Friends. Somewhere amidst Charlie Sheen’s meltdown and Oprah’s last episode, the duo dropped one of the most simultaneously bleak and hilarious song cycles ever conceived, replete with tales of bigamy, reinventions of self, addiction, and disgraced UFC fighters. Woe leavened by whimsy.
With a fresh collection of songs written, ON AN ON ventured to California to record at the famous Sunset Sound in Los Angeles with legendary producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Spoon, The Shins, My Morning Jacket). The influence of sun-drenched Californian landscape can be clearly heard in the new record, pushing the vibrancy and the energy of their debut to ever-greater heights. Come hear their polished new take on experimental-pop in a live setting!
Formed in 2011, Muuy Biien was conceived as a loud, fed-up response to what some would say was a stagnant and uninteresting music scene in the band’s hometown of Athens, GA. Initially the ambient project of lead singer Joshua Evans, Muuy Biien quickly expanded into a full-fledged band. Evans’s hardcore ambitions were fully realized with the addition of guitarists Xander Witt and Robbie Rapp and drummer Jacob Lake.
LA hardcore powerhouses Touché Amoré are joined by hardcore/post-punk pals Ceremony and hardcore punkers Gouge Away to bring what promises to be a night of absolute insanity! Come out to Club Congress to partake in the madness. See you there!
Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience.
Club Congress is stoked to welcome back the legendary band just a year after they kicked off the start of their “Hold It In” tour right here in Tucson! If you happened to miss that show, consider yourself lucky, because you have yet another chance to see King Buzzo & Co. in action!
