Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real’s Charleston Debut

The first thing we heard was his voice and it stopped us in our tracks. It was familiar, but original, and at the same time, it was a voice we felt we hadn’t heard in decades. We were at the Targhee Music Festival in Wyoming this past July when we first heard Willie Nelson’s son Lukas and his band Promise of the Real. We knew we had to bring them to Charleston, but Lukas doesn't need his last name's help. Since 2007, he and his band have been quietly making waves, and most recently became Neil Young's choice for his studio and touring band. Last month, they released their most recent, eponymous studio album, and on September 21st, they’ll be making their Lowcountry debut at the Music Farm with The Travelin’ Kine opening for them. We’re stoked for this show, and hope to see you there! Get tickets here.

Little Bird Back at The Commodore on October 5th

Little Bird is bringing their surf rock/jazz/Americana vibe back to The Commodore this October 5th for another killer show! Originally from Annapolis, MD, these guys have called Charleston home for the past two years and gained a loyal following in the Southeast. They’ve toured with G Love & Special Sauce, Pressing Strings, Long Miles, and Fortunate Youth and played on the big stage, but we’re looking forward to seeing them in a more intimate setting here in downtown Charleston. Show is 21+ and tickets are $10 at the door. Join + Share the Facebook Event here.
