Lawrence

w/ Joe Hertler and The Brummies (Doors at 7pm, $15, 16+)

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. After years of playing together, they officially created Lawrence, an eight-piece soul-pop band comprised of powerhouse musicians who happen to be their best friends from childhood and college. See this family affair live in concert at the Hotel Congress with support from Joe Hertler!

John Paul White (Solo Acoustic)

w/ Amy LaVere and Will Sexton (Doors at 7pm, $18 - $20, 21+)

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 with support from Amy LaVere and Will Sexton. This evening couldn’t be better suited for the historic Hotel Congress!

w/ Special Guests (Doors at 7pm, $10 - $15, 16+)
