Join us at The Garage on Tuesday, October 14 at 8 PM for an evening of music with Ali Holder with Little Brave!

Ali Holder is a 27 year old singer/songwriter and Texas native who just graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with an M.A. in Art Education.  Ali began playing as a solo artist at age 16 and sings with the controlled power of Brandi Carlile and the emotiveness of Patty Griffin. She counts a number of diverse performers—including Kris Kristofferson and Florence and The Machine—among her musical influences; her wide-ranging tastes have been reflected in her work, from her current Americana/folk output to Stuck in Red, the R&B album she released with The Raindoggs in 2011.  She is currently working on her second album release, which is titled “In Preparation for Saturn’s Return”.

Little Brave is the moniker of Stephanie Macias, who hails from Austin, TX. As stated in a Daytrotter article from 2012, “Little Brave’s music exhibits some form of intensity that you don’t hear all over the place. It’s strange because it’s not really all that intense in the way you might think of intensity in a traditional sense. It’s intense because it’s so individual.”

Join us at The Garage on Monday, October 13 at 8 PM for an evening of music with The Lowest Pair with Jon McClain!

The Lowest Pair is a bluegrass duo whose bold banjo picking and warm voices will captivate you. Kendl Winter and Palmer T Lee have a unique blend of styles that comes from their diverse backgrounds. Stemming from an old-time and bluegrass bend grown from punk roots, Kendl brings to The Lowest Pair her wonderfully weaving poetry of song, old and new, a voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent and throwing a little Olympia twist on those familiar sounds.  Palmer’s voice is warm and sad with longing like that of Townes Van Zandt yet laughing and whooping like that of John Hartford.  He contributes warm sweet sounds of his percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style to the group’s enchanting songs.

Jon McClain is opening for The Lowest Pair.

Join us at The Garage on Tuesday, October 28th at 8 PM for an evening of music with The Mulligan Brothers!

The Mulligan Brothers from Mobile, Alabama, proves that good stories and lyrics still matter in music and well-written songs don’t need a catchy chorus or a happy ending to win over an audience or to be played over and over. The band’s debut album, “The Mulligan Brothers,” was in the Offbeat’s list of the Top Ten of CD sales at the 2014 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. The album is filled with straightforward narratives, concise, original lines,  and lead singer Ross Newell’s honest, sincere voice cutting to the heart in songs that seem as much to himself as to the listener.

The rhythm of Greg DeLuca, the string melodies of Gram Rea, and Ben Leininger’s suitcase bass grab attention as The Mulligan Brothers’ music crosses borders between folk rock and Americana. “There was a temptation to add more instruments during production of the album but we wanted to reproduce the songs on stage every night,” says Rea. “If we can’t play it live, we didn’t play it on the album, and that shaped our sound.”
