Javier & The Innocent Sons: 9pm
“Javier & the Innocent Sons: This potent roots music trio from Minneapolis play timeless barrel housing music — with echoes from Appalachian dance parties and Delta fish fries, but projected from the contemporary perspective of songwriter Javier Matos. Their new album is Lost in Loretto.” realdeepblues.blogspot.com (site)
