Their covers that include songs by Sam Cooke, Bob Dylan, Toni Childs, Tracy Chapman, The Animals, John Lennon, and others. Their originals cover every aspect of the human condition from love to social justice, to comedy. Several of their comedy songs have become crowd favorites, songs such as "Thick", "Skinny", and "Practicing for You". Farr's singing is rooted in the blues, soul, and gospel tradition. The Lee Street Backsliders is Lexington's new Rock & Soul band with blues, folk, and funk sensibilities and gospel conviction behind the vocals.

Thursday Jun 25th @ 9pm Gill Landry
Gill Landry Folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gill Landry, a member of Old Crow Medicine Show and founder of the Kitchen Syncopators, is set to release his third solo album in less than two weeks. As the self-titled project quickly approaches, Landry offers "Take This Body," a gorgeously gloomy duet with Laura Marling about longing for more from love than mere companionship. Beautiful guitar lines, rich fiddle strokes, space-filling drums, and delicate piano chords surround simple but powerful lyrics, first from Landry, then from Marling, before they harmonize on the hook.

Friday Jun 26th @ 8pm The Bats
The Bats Cabaret::Comedy::Ensemble

Bringing together the seven diverse talents known as The Bats has netted a genre that can best be described as cabaret meets rock and roll... and everything in between. The five meddlesome women and two foolhardy men of this distinctive group embrace musical styles ranging from goofy to poignant. United by the angst and joys of middle age, they bare their souls onstage, singing of love lost and found, the perks and stings of growing bolder, and of life's best and worst moments. Whether covering other artists' material or singing their own original tunes, The Bats rock the stage with tight vocal harmonies and skillful musicianship, wit and sophistication, energy and creativity... then they throw in props and choreography for good measure! They sing, they dance, they yodel, & they won't stop, even if you ask them to.
The "Bats experience" is unique, smart, fun, lively, refreshing, and most of all entertaining. Don't miss it!
