8pm – $7/10


Boxcar Hollow is a band derived from experience and musical prowess. This post-modern folk americana newgrass quartet, takes the true essence of the roots of folk and bluegrass, with jamband sensibilities and turns it into this new yet familiar sound we call “Boxcar Hollow”.. As individuals they have played some of the biggest stages and and festivals in the country, and now this group resides in the Tampa Bay area, with touring on the horizon back to The North, where Matt Weis(guitar vocals) and Jack Pieroth(bass) are originally from. Jeff Baker (drums/percussion) channels his song writing from his country v, where Matt Weis’ influences stem from a Dylan-esc homage, along with some of the other folk musicians who are leading the way in our modern era. Greg Holt’s fiddle and mandolin playing is second to none, and he has played with some of the greatest nashville musicians alive today and from the past. He is currently the official fiddler for the Tampa Bay Lighting and their affiliate; The Storm. Matt Weis and Jack Pieroth has been playing music together for nearly 15 years, and are enjoying their latest journey in the Tampa Bay region, playing shows nearly 7 nights a week. One of Jack’s biggest influences is bassist Phil Lesh, which solidity, and keeping the band in synchronicity with driving bass lines, is of the upmost importance. Look for this band on the rise in Tampa Bay’s arts and entertainment magazine “Creative Loafing”, and right now you can see them every Thursday night, in Downtown St. Pete at the Mandarin Hide, along with shows in and around around central Florida and beyond.


With a depth of sound all their own, Flat Land layers dreamy melodies over flashes of Stevie Wonder tinged funk and the occasional chaos of avant-garde blues revivalist Jack White. Front woman/violinist Fae Nageon de Lestang’s voice cuts through the sound, equal parts Billie Holiday and Florence Welch. Songs weave from soul-drenched rock-and-roll to afro-latin flavored grooves on a whim, bringing listeners on a sonic adventure where they’re sure to need their dancing shoes.
