Matisyahu | Sat 9:00pm

Ten years after the release of his breakthrough album, Live at Stubb’s (which reached #1 on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart), Matisyahu has again returned to the well-known Texas venue to record Live at Stubb’s III: A 10-Year Journey. The result is a picture of artistic evolution, filled with the kind of texture a performer only acquires after years on the road, gathering myriad life-experiences and exploring new musical influences.

From 2005 to 2015, Matisyahu’s artistic and personal transformation has been nothing less than epic. Achieving early success as a “hasidic reggae superstar,” he later went on to craft a broader, multi-influence, cross‐genre musical style that broke all the rules, bringing him greater success and an equal amount of criticism from early fans. Having survived the backlash from the die-hard reggae set, as well as those who saw him only as a “bearded Jewish icon,” Matisyahu released Akeda (Uh-kay-duh) in 2014, his most creative, “self-reflective and purely conceived album” to date.

big something

Big Something | Fri 7:00pm

Named Best Rising Artist of 2014 by Live Music Daily, Big Something is one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.

The group recently released its 3rd full-length studio album - Truth Serum - with the help of Grammy-nominated producer John Custer. Recorded almost entirely live in the studio, Truth Serum, is a great snapshot of the magic the band is capable of creating on stage. The album was named 2014 Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music Network, which makes Big Something the only band ever to win this award 3 times with 3 different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014).

major and the monbacks

Major and the Monbacks | Fri 9:15pm

Major and the Monbacks style of music has been highly debated since the band’s inception. Fans and critics alike have argued relentlessly in an attempt to classify their sound. From garage rock to blue-eyed soul, from country funk to Beatlesque pop. Truthfully it’s all of the above and even a little bit more. The band simply calls it Rock n’ Roll.


All born and raised in Norfolk, VA, The Monbacks began their journey as a loose collective of high school friends with a common interest in late nights and loud music. Desperate to escape the impending reality of the 9 to 5 workday, the group decided to hit the open road and play for anyone willing to listen. What ensued was a nine month continuous tour of the Eastern United States that spanned 30,000 miles and 150+ shows in their beat-up, old passenger van. No matter how dark the basement or lonely the bar, it was here in the farthest fringes of the music industry that these ragtag renegades would make their stand. What they initially lacked in musical prowess was compensated for by sheer volume and occasional acrobatics. Nevertheless, their mission to spread the musical spirit and sensibilities of days long gone drove them onwards to hone their songwriting and live performances.
