TOMMY ALEXANDER, MIKE COYKENDALL, JAY COBB ANDERSON (Fruition); Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm $5

Originally from Santa Barbara, CA, Alexander had never written or played music until he got a guitar as a gift for his 21st birthday. A highly ranked amateur baseball player at the time, Tommy quit the sport, dropped out of college, and threw himself into writing and performing music full time.
Alexander focuses on “basement indie” sound with influences from American folk music that reflects his personal songwriting style. “I focus on poetry and music and my inspiration, and from there I just let it all flow through me.” In the era of synthetic electro-pop, audiences from across the country have connected with Alexander’s intimate sound..
Over the past two years alone, Tommy has been fortunate to share the stage with acts such as Michael McDonald, Kevin Devine, Rising Appalachia, People Under the Stairs, Milo Greene, Johnnyswim, Night Beds, Spirit Family Reunion.
“The downright truth about Alexander is that he is an expression of rebellion in a society that is trapped within institutional conformities and down-the-road retirement plans. Filled with an introspective and strikingly truthful style of songwriting, his music can be downright mind-bending — especially for those of us who have grown used to Pandora’s corporate jukebox and the cultural clichés that run with it.”

Veteran songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Coykendall has been amazingly prolific over the last three decades or so. Currently most well known for his duties as a sideman, producer, and recordist via his work with M Ward, Blitzen Trapper, She & Him, Annalisa Tornfelt, & Tin Hat Trio, to name a few, Coykendall has been making his own unique outsider records since the mid-80′s.
