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!

young hunter Watch / Listen Young Hunter by Young Hunter Young Hunter began as the solo recording project of songwriter/singer/guitarist Benjamin Blake, blossomed into a seven-piece band in Tucson, Arizona, and has been distilled down to a crushing, dynamic five-piece in Portland, OR, where the band is now based. After touring in support of their debut full length Stone Tools and EP Embers at the Foot of Dark Mountain, Young Hunter was reincarnated when Blake relocated to Portland in 2013…
Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards, the sole member of the Austin-based indie rock band of which she remains the lone original member, is gracing the Club Congress stage and debuting a new body of exciting solo material! You can’t miss it!
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!
Four Color Zack is a technically dazzling “DJ’s DJ” and top party rocker at the same damn time, deftly cutting between arena shows, Vegas megaclubs and underground parties with style and ease. 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.
Join us for a night of psychedelic bliss as we welcome psych wizards Mystic Braves and their electro-psych friend The Dream Ride. Bring vibes and an open heart and prepare to be blown into a kaleidoscopic oblivion!
Formed in 2009, the prolific Austin, TX experimental synth quartet S U R V I V E have released two full-lengths and numerous EPs / singles since their inception, including recent contributions to the soundtrack for the acclaimed indie horror film “The Guest” and hit new series “Stranger Things.”
Rolling Stone has hailed California musician, Margaret Glaspy’s, single “You and I” for its “hot barbs of electric guitar,” and BrooklynVegan declared it a “stomping rocker with a DGAF attitude”. On October 5th, Glaspy is bringing her jagged guitar rock to Club Congress! See you there!
