July Guys Goose Again

Friday, July 6th
Adam Varona, Ian McGlone, and Noah Nelson
Dr. Adam Varona is an amazing wooey from The Inversions and Sea Legs. His music is heart-felt and melodically wonderful. Noah is a romantic man who writes poetic and exciting music. He plays in Radio Orangevale, Las Pesadillas, and Loose Engines. Ian McGlone is a practical dreamer, a gainfully employed mystic, and a chronic songwriter. When the spirit moves him—often after meeting a new woman—he is compelled to transmute his feelings into song. Come feel a little. Ian’s stage presence is worth the cost of admission. Think folk rock with soul, a dash of humor, and a sprinkling of unrequited love. Don't miss this intimate musical cuddle sesh with some of Sacramento's most lovable songwriters. Meow-burgers.

The Joe Kaplow, Blue Oaks, and Eugene Ugly
Influenced by traditional American music and folk revival songwriters like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, music is Joe Kaplow’s way of taking stock of the journeys he’s been on and reminding himself to keep pursuing a sense of home.
"Blue Oaks’ music is a loose amalgam of blues, country, folk, rock ’n’ roll, and soul. The songs are gritty, mysterious and sometimes wander into the familiar sounds of past generations, all while taking unpredictable detours." - Aaron Carnes
Eugene Ugly is worried rock band. George is married, Victor fears nothing, and Cameron has a one-eyed dog.

Nolan can rock the emo but is not emo. He can lay down the folk but isn’t exactly folky. He sometimes rocks with a band but does it in an almost heartbreakingly lonely way. He ain’t pop. What the hell is he?" -- Kevin Seconds, 7 Seconds
