Wednesday Apr 16th @ 9pm Passafire
Passafire Reggae::Prog::Rock
On Passafire's fifth studio release, Vines, the Savannah, GA based rock outfit continues to progress towards what they feel is their true identity as a band in the reggae rock genre. After starting fresh with several new pieces to the puzzle on their 2011 release, Start From Scratch, they have now teamed up with Easy Star Records (Easy Star All Stars, John Brown's Body) for what the band considers their best album yet. "Passafire continues to stretch Easy Star's sound and style," says Lem Oppenheimer, co-founder of the label. "They bring a harder rock edge while still grounding their music in a progressive reggae base. They fit the mold of all of our artists: dedicated, hard working, touring their butts off, and never settling for what people expect of them."

Passafire was formed in 2003 by students attending Savannah College of Art and Design. Throughout the years, they have become a perpetually touring band playing hundreds of shows a year with bands like 311, Rebelution, Pepper, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, The Wailers and many more.

Opening Act: Lullwater

Thursday Apr 17th @ 9pm Caroline Smith
Caroline Smith Indie::Soul
Merging '90s R&B and neo-soul with her indie-rock roots, Caroline Smith's new music has settled comfortably into a new backdrop as she takes a step from girl to woman. Half About Being a Woman is a record about self-acceptance and growing into yourself; it's about going back to the roots of 'feel-good' music. "I wanted to find my way back to the reason why I started playing music in the first place," says Smith. "Over the last year I began to embrace that being a strong, confident, opinionated woman is something to be proud of, not subdued. I have to embrace where my roots are and stay true to who I am: an unabashed fan of 90bs R&B, pop, and neo-soul."
Watch Caroline's video for "Magazine"
Watch Caroline play "Child of Moving On" live

Opening Act: The Nativity Singers play a blend of math rock & power pop referencing bands like Pavement & the Dismemberment Plan, but making sounds all their own.
"Lexington's latest pop group who've set out to make the Bluegrass summer a little brighter." -You Ain't No Picasso

Friday Apr 18th @ 8pm O-Zone
O-Zone Jazz::Ensemble
The O-Zone is a mystical place in the musical daydream of Paul Osborne, a fresh, live approach to the genre! Paul has enlisted the aid of some excellent musicians to help him bring his daydream to life....Jim Borders on keyboards, Clive Pohl on guitar, Bob Hackett on bass, Tyler Swick on percussion and John Knight on drums. They reach of that elusive "fifth element" of jazz.....jazz fusion/contemporary jazz or otherwise known as the "O-Zone"!

Friday Apr 18th @ 10:30pm Chicago Underground Duo: Co-presented by WRFL's Outside the Spotlight Jazz Series
Chicago Underground Duo: Co-presented by WRFL's Outside the Spotlight Jazz Series Jazz::Electronica::Experimental
The Chicago Underground Duo formed in late 1997 as an offshoot of the larger Chicago Underground Collective. The Duo consists of Rob Mazurek (cornet, electronics, piano) and Chad Taylor (percussion, electronics, vibes, guitar). Rob and Chad have toured extensively in the U.S, Canada, Europe, Japan and Brazil. The Duo is also, arguably, the most musically adventurous of the Chicago Underground incarnations. Performances are based on both notated compositions, composed by both artists, and on pure improvisation.
Splitting his time between Chicago and Sao Paulo, Brazil, composer and cornetist Rob Mazurek is the quintessential international artist. Mazurek leads numerous ensembles (Exploding Star Orchestra, Rob Mazurek's Sound Is Quintet, Chicago Underground, Sao Paulo Underground, Tigersmilk and Mandarin Movie).

Free admission for UK students w/ID, courtesy of Natasha's Bistro & WRFL.
