Bill Eberle: Soft Light Record Release Show
The East Room
Thu, Oct 11 8:00 pm


Bill Eberle: It is impossible to escape history. It informs the way that we view the world. It also informs the way we hear the world. This is not lost on Bill Eberle. Unable to stay in one place, he takes in all of the tradition that he can find, releasing it back into the world through his own lens. A kid who loved The Ramones to an adult who discovered Woody Guthrie, his songs are quintessential American stories about working folk and drifters, sinners and redemption – accessible to the average listener and respected by the staunchest folkies, all without losing a DIY-rocknroll attitude.-Noisetrade Hari: As with many musical projects, HARI began as a bedroom recording vehicle for Taylor Lowrance, until he recruited fellow Shy Guy alums Ben Crannell and Brennan Walsh and bassist Seth Ferguson to flesh out the new sound.  The result, that you’ll hear in their debut EP Daze in the Sun, is a shoegazey pop gem whose shimmery guitars echo of DIIV, Real Estate, and Slowdive, but with songwriting inspiration from the likes of idols Springsteen, Neil Young, and Ryan Adams.-No Country David Smalt: David Smalt is a songwriter & poet living in Nashville, TN. His debut record "Fragile Magick" is out now. His music has been described as neo-folk & reminiscent of Bon Iver, Bob Dylan, & James Taylor (-The Deli). David also spends time writing poetry. The Styrofoam Winos: Nashville’s The Styrofoam Winos are not a typical band—the three-piece describe themselves as a sort of revolving door of projects. Each member is a songwriter with their own projects, and they alternate between leading the bands live show. Made up of Lou Turner, Trevor Nikrant, and Joe Kenkel, the band is constantly shapeshifting between sounds, styles, and instruments. The Styrofoam Winos are very much a live band, but the band is also alive; it’s dynamic and difficult to pin down, which is why it’s so important to see them play in person. Their next show is tonight at 9 pm at Betty’s Grill, and they will be playing again on August 26th with Crave On at The End. - Lilly Milman
