JulyDoors 8:00, Show 9:00 - $5
Jessie and the JacksonsA fantastic alt-country band featuring folks from Common Visions and Carolina Catskins.
From drug-addled stories of summer love to rock and roll anthems dedicated to plants, the song styles range from clandestine poetry to shout-out, sing-a-long choruses. Their output spans Rock and Roll, Blues, Psychedelic Garage, Punk, Soul, and Power Pop. Influences include Chuck Berry, The Velvet Underground, T. Rex, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Elliott Smith, Swervedriver, The Beatles, Oasis, Pixies, Black Lips, Ramones and early Green Day.
Although the band is tagged most often as surf- influences can be heard from Santo and Johnny to Hawkwind. It's WEIRD reverb-dolloped instrumental music to feel good and bad to.
Ouroboros Boys have had the distinct honor of sharing the stage with national acts such as Agent Orange, Man or Astroman, Southern Culture on the Skids and Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps) AND have served as the house band for several regular "tiki night" events in and around Asheville. The current lineup includes Mars Sigler and Benjamin Hatch in addition to founding members Sean Dail and Nicholas Marshall.
