Over the course of seven years and four critically acclaimed albums, Bloomington, Indiana's Sam Lowry has slowly been perfecting his unique brand of dark Americana, sharpening the cut of his voice and deepening the impact of his words. Lowry's songwriting occupies the dark corner where the poetry of Leonard Cohen shares a drink with Tom Waits midnight observations, while his albums sonically occupy the kind of adventurous gothic American territory traveled by (smog) and Sparklehorse. Helping Lowry complete his vision is a veritable who's-who from the fertile Bloomington music scene; including regular appearances from members of Murder by Death and Early Day Miners.
Lowry has spent a good portion of the last several years on the road, with over 400 shows, sharing the stage with bands such as Murder by Death, the Good Life, Early Day Miners, Azure Ray, Mock Orange, Lucero, Codeseven, Vedera, Unwed Sailor, Rocky Votolato, the Appleseed Cast, William Elliott Whitmore and the Hackensaw Boys, playing everything from basements, coffee houses and dive bars to festivals like MACRock, Bloomingtonfest and Pygmalion.
Who Hit John? have been performing, jamming and busking around southwest Michigan since 2006. They've brought their energetic and original old time sound to bars, basements, street corners, concert halls - Anywhere they can get folks stompin', singin' and clappin'. Joined together by a love for acoustic music and its vibrant scene in Michigan, this derelict group of misfits and prophets are intent on taking the world by storm, one song at a time.
Whether kicking out rawkus fiddle tunes, dirty and greasy southern blues, or high and lonesome bluegrass serenades, Who Hit John? keep the home fires burning, carrying on the tradition of American roots music. All five members write and sing, providing a wealth of material and influences. Who Hit John? always bring audiences something exciting and new. Tickets only $7, Doors open at 6:30.
