Live Music at Fox & Goose January 2012
Alice Wallace is coming from Orange County with some sweet country on Wednesday the 4th with Sacramento's Lovelorn Trio featuring Alicia Aspatore's lovely voice, John Aspatore on guitar, and Tom Mackerness on stand-up bass. Alice Wallace is on tour supporting her new album Sweet Madness. Don't miss this show! Come have some Hot Spiced Cider and a Nutburger.
January 5th we see the Avalanche duo bringing beautiful violin and guitar music. From classical to old country folk to blue grass, Avalanche was hand picked by the Fox & Goose's founder Bill Dalton. He met them at a friends wedding and invited them to come play, and we are very, very happy to have them. Check them out here. Have a Mulled Wine and enjoy their sweet melodies.
Next, it's the beautiful Tessie Marie and The Poor Man Band on Friday the 6th. One of Sacramento's most exciting bands! They feature some this town's best musicians with Ratatat Pat on drums, Allie Marcel on stand-up bass, and new member Steve Kroan on guitar. They are gonna fill the Goose with classic blues and country. You'll fall in love with them for sure.
Saturday, January 7th we have the amazing Chris Fairman back. His haunting vocals are perfect for the Goose. He's got great lyrics and melodies. This time he's bringing a band too. Can't wait for this show. Chris is definitely a hidden gem and will bring you back wanting more. We also see the return of San Jose's Picture Atlantic! This band is pure melodic indie pop at it's best. Don't miss this one.
Of course we have Steve McLane on Wednesday the 11th. Steve has been playing at Fox & Goose since the early days. His smooth voice and perfect guitar playing are the vibe we can only hope will last forever. Playing classics from Neil Young to the Beatles to Bob Dylan, he always leaves us wanting more, and it's always a mellow way to spend a Wednesday evening with a pint and a pasty.
On Thursday January 12th we have Felsen all the way from West Oaktown with Katie Knipp. "Felsen's music is both smart and sexy and is always catchy. It demands repeated listening. This is for Alt Rock fans of Wilco, Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, Beck AND fans of the classic sound of Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys and the Beatles."Katie Knipp is a new soul that incorporates old blues, torch piano, and harmonica hungry alt country.
Back by popular demand, Friday the 13th we have the Fortunate Few with the Bleeding Hearts, and Colonel Jimmy and The Blackfish. Mike Strauch brings back his sounds of Honky Tonk, Rockabilly and Vintage Country! We love Mike and all the bands he's been in here in Sac. So don't miss this night!
Second Saturday, the 14th, we are happy to bring from San Francisco the super lush tones of Ash Reiter. Such a great band with amazing songs. We can't stop listening to their new EP. They are a five piece indie pop band drawing comparisons to Feist, Morning Benders, Sondre Lerche and the Shins. Also on the bill is The Heather Show, featuring Heather Frederick singing about her life and the delightful Walking Spanish. This is by far the most important thing going on in Sacramento on January's Second Saturday!
The 20th is a Friday and we very happy to have the infamous Musical Charis and the amazing Souterrain on the bill. Musical Charis is a cabaret of multi-instrumental musicians who constantly tour, write and record new material. The band even made time to open "Musical Charis Music School" for low-income families in Sacramento. Members of the band teach private piano, guitar, and voice lessons to over 50 youngsters in the area. They have been compared to U2, MGMT, and Fleetwood Mac. The Souterrain consists of Irish singer Lauren Norton and her Davis, CA friends. They play a hybrid folk/acoustic style. Their bio says, "Folk cures, lullabies, and revenge fantasies all have their home in our soundscape." Also on the bill is The Black Swans from Columbus, Ohio. This is gonna be a really special night. Don't miss it.
RHOMBU$, touring in support of their new EP: No Fancy Girlfriends. This will be a fun night, so come blow off some steam and have a pint...
The Music Room in support of their new EP: Live While You're Alive playing with David Rosenfield on tour from Clearwater, Florida. David's a quirky folkstar traveling around singing about what he'd like to do with the %1. This will be sweet. You should come early and have a Banger on a Bun with English Cheddar and Chips!
You have to come see our new favorites Cold Eskimo on Saturday January 28th. This band is moody and eclectic, and energetic and pretty. A full sound with these guys, and they're bringing Golden Youth and Sean Fleming. Come out and support live music at Fox & Goose. We promise you won't be disappointed. There's something for everyone at this old pub.
