CELEBRATING SOUND + PLACE
Think of them as small club shows for the lakeshore. Diverse, innovative artists, intimate venues, and folks with a shared appreciation for discovering something new. When we get it right, as uncomplicated and essential as they are unexpected. Join us as we celebrate sound and place, and the simple joy of gathering around great music.
Listen to a selection of 2022 concert season artists here.
NOMO AT JOURNEYMAN DISTILLERY
Genre-busting ensemble NOMO closes a special, limited-run reunion at Journeyman Distillery. Weaving Afrobeat, world, jazz, and electronica, this music is loud and full of life. A rare chance to see Elliot Bergman, Erik Hall, Dan Bennett, Justin Walter, Jamie Register, and Quin Kirchner—six diverse and individually accomplished musicians—perform the critically-acclaimed open terrain of NOMO’s catalog. Don’t miss this raucous, danceable show.
MACIE STEWART AT SUSAN’S
As in-demand polymath of Chicago’s indie rock scene, Macie Stewart is a shape-shifting virtuoso and celebrated collaborator. As solo artist and songwriter, she weaves her satin voice and finger-picked guitar into an exquisite suite of chamber-pop vignettes. Set on Susan’s terrace, we’re thrilled to welcome Macie and her band for this rare Southwest Michigan performance.
DANIEL VILLARREAL AT SEEDZ BREWERY
Beloved Chicago drummer and bandleader Daniel Villarreal performs work from his debut solo LP, Panamá 77, at Seedz Brewery. A vibrant batch of jazz-laced, psychedelic, Latin funk informed by his Central American upbringing, expect positive vibes and infectious grooves. A perfect toast to summer’s end.
RODEOLA AT RIVER SAINT JOE
Rodeola is Bloomington’s Kate Long, an indelible, emerging voice among folk-rock peers like Joan Shelley and Julien Baker. Lush, contemplative, and complex, her 2021 album Arlene earned unsolicited praise from Pitchfork when it was listed among 29 Great Records You May Have Missed. Simultaneously modern and timeless in the tradition of Joni Mitchell, we’re thrilled to bring her to Southwest Michigan for this peak-autumn show at River Saint Joe.
CALIFONE AT VICKERS THEATRE
A very special night with critically-acclaimed experimental-rock outfit Califone. Blending electronic noise with acoustic texture and Appalachian tones, Califone draws from a deep catalog of kaleidoscopic rock, sleeper hits, and enduring classics. Led by Tim Rutili’s rough, dusty vocals, these are songs for the ages.
