  • Laundry & Bourbon with Lonestar

    Laundry and Bourbon with Lonestar, two companion one act plays set in backyards of a small Texas town. Three ladies come together to talk about their life's ups and downs.

    Algernon Cadwallader, Tim Kinsella & Jenny Pulse [outside]

    A precise starting point for Midwest emo – the genre’s twinkly, indie, not-so-punky strain – has always been subject for music nerd debate. However, no similar mystery surrounds the origins of the 2010s Midwest emo revival. It’s attributed entirely to the anxious bounce and scrappy, self-deprecating melancholy of this recently reunited Philadelphia group. Algernon Cadwallader prematurely disbanded in 2012, shortly before their arpeggiated guitars and yelpy, off-key vocals would leap to the forefront of the decade’s underground (another emo nostalgia package, the Hotelier/Foxing tour, touches down at the same venue in February). Opener is genre OG Tim Kinsella of Cap’n Jazz.
