Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas

w/ Tancred and The Gayboys (Doors at 7pm, $10/12, 16+)

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas are a Detroit-based band serving up a brilliantly polyglot sonic stew – equal parts rockabilly and surf pop, cabaret jazz and funky reggae, Latin psych and Gypsy punk – all cooked up on the hot Motor City pavement and seasoned by that distinctly Detroit combination of blasted R&B, showband theatrics, and limitless rock ‘n’ soul energy. They are being joined at Club Congress by an equally fresh and exciting band, Tancred and local psych swooners, The Gayboys. We hope to see you at the show!

Thu 29 Sep


w/ Chris Staples (Doors at 7pm, $15-$17, 16+)

Seattle musician Rocky Votolato is a soft-spoken, very kind, very hard-working father of two, born in rural Texas and raised in the Pacific Northwest indie scene (where he fronted the acclaimed rock band Waxwing). His gravelly, sandpaper smooth voice and introspective lyrics mark him as that most rare of punk-rocker-turned-acoustic-troubadours: Votolato writes graceful, understated, human, unpretentious songs, demonstrating that simplicity is still a viable option for accomplished songwriters. Votolato is coming to Club Congress on September 29th, and he’s bringing with him Chris Staples, an indie musician from Florida. Hope to see you there!

Between his winning sets at the Red Bull Thre3style World Championships and his unrelenting touring schedule, the Seattle record slinger showed the entire globe what it means to be the best behind the decks, but real heads have known for years that every single FCZ set is a master class in creativity.
