If Thor’s Hammer of the Gods from “Immigrant Song” landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women, it would sound something like Thunderpussy.

Siblings Clyde Lawrence, 24, and Gracie Lawrence, 21, have been writing songs and listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records together in the living room of their family’s New York City apartment since they were little kids.

See this family affair live in concert at the Hotel Congress with support from Joe Hertler!
Folk music auteur and member of The Civil Wars, John Paul White, has a new solo album out; his first in over ten years. Spanning plaintive folk balladry, swampy southern rock, lonesome campfire songs, and dark acoustic pop, John’s new work is gothic and ambitious, with a rustic, lived-in sound. See him on this intimate solo tour that couldn’t be better suited for the historic Hotel Congress!

At the core of Death Valley Girls, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Bonnie Bloomgarden and guitarist Larry Schemel channel a modern spin on Fun House’s sonic exorcisms, ZZ Top’s desert-blasted riffage, and Sabbath’s occult menace.
