    Jackson Grimm

    7pm

    Jackson Grimm is a singer-songwriter based out of Asheville, NC. His music invokes the sounds of Appalachia and pays homage to the new scene of folk music. Jackson Grimm marries folk pop melodies with the lonesome sound of traditional Appalachian music. In a region with a strong music culture, it is no surprise that Grimm's songwriting is representative of his musical birthplace: Asheville, NC. His songs run the gambit from an homage to a traditional country waltz in "If Not For You", an unrequited love song driven by a Beatles-esque melody in "I'd Hold You (But I Don't Wanna Hold You)", to a drunken partygrass song à la Old Crow Medicine Show in "Last Train Home". Dont miss this talented singer songwriter on the Pub's stage Tuesday September 17th @ 7pm!

    5J Barrow

    9pm - $5 Entry

    Inspiration seeped through the windows of apartment 5J on Barrow Street looking out over the Hudson River in NYC’s Greenwich Village, where singer-songwriters and Broadway performers, Eryn Murman and Jason Hite, soaked up the energy and passion of musicians, painters, poets and writers who created the Village vibe. Together, they paid tribute to those creative spirits and named their band 5j Barrow, writing music and lyrics with a unique folk/rock sound, touring as a duo, and often picking up Drew Jones on bass and Gerard Canonico on drums. The band has inspired audiences with soulful music, evocative imagery, and lyrics that touch the heart, from the historic Apollo Theater to the open air of Washington Square Park, from the streets of New Orleans to the Rocky Mountains, from California wine country to New England forests.

    Johnny 7 and the Black Crabs

    9pm - $5

    Johnny 7 and the Black Crabs is a rock'n'roll trio from Seattle. Formed as a backing band for Rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson, The Black Crabs only intended to be together for a short time. But with the success of touring with Wanda and Johnny's deep love of wild 50s rock'n'roll, rockabilly, and vintage jazz, The Black Crabs just couldn't stop.

    Drawing heavily from their background in Ameripolitan Music- Rockabilly, Honky-Tonk, and Hillbilly Swing, the trio performs upbeat music full of harmonies, quirky turns, and danceable beats. While they may slip in an obscure cover with an authentic feel, they also mix in rich doses of Garage, Surf and Western Swing to their originals. Writing the songs, crooning and handling guitar and steel duties, Johnny 7 is the heart and soul of The Black Crabs.

    Johnny 7: guitar, steel, vocals  -  Wesley Amundsen: doghouse bass  -  Mike Daugherty: drums, vocals

    Harlem River Noise

    9pm - $5 Entry

     In February 2017 at the legendary Sun Studios, two sidemen on a recording session bonded over the swinging tendencies in 1950s rock'n'roll music: a transitional era that blends boogie-woogie piano with sassy saxophone in a format that appeals to all-ages dancing. Today, this blend still appeals to a wide variety of audiences, and Harlem River Noise reminds people of this feel-good experience via a thoroughly entertaining live show of original content that features sing-a-longs, instrument-switching, an upside down upright bass, and more TBD on-stage.

         As Harlem-based neighbors, Cody Gibson & Kyle Lacy fortified their alliance along a feel-good path which culminated into a debut album recorded entirely to an expensive reel-to-reel tape machine.
