****** ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 24TH ******
MINGO FISHTRAP with ERIN AND THE WILDFIRE — JUNE 23
A soul and funk outfit that hails from New Orleans (where else?), Mingo Fishtrap feels most comfortable waxing poetic about the finer things in life, like a brand-new Toyota, a house on the hill, or a hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint. Hit them horns, baby!

Chamomile & Whiskey will be throwing it down at The Jefferson Theater this Friday for their official CD Release Party.

“Essentially, me and Marie, we both started collaborating about a year and a half, two years ago. We had gone on tours, the two of us, all across the country. We decided we wanted to form a full band. As we were planning and talking about it, we were up at Marie’s place and she’d made us some chamomile tea and of course I had a bottle of Evan Williams with me, so I added a splash and said, “This kinda tastes like my music.” [laughter] So we were like well this is what the band should be called. That’s what started the process of finding musicians to play with. The prerequisite was they had to like whiskey.”

LANGHORNE SLIM & THE LAW and DAVID MAYFIELD PARADE — JUNE 7TH
He’s got one heck of a name, but it seems to match his wild, meandering and raspy voice. Slim’s new record The Way We Move has garnered national attention with commercials and TV appearances. Seeing him and The Law live and in person will give a whole new meaning to “the way we move,” because you probably won’t stop dancing.
As you get ready to make it over this week’s hump day, we are bringing you another great list of songs that you really ought to know about. If you don’t though, turn up the volume and check out some of these awesome tunes.
