Clast and Jenn Rogar
Clast is back for one more Goose-show due to a last minute cancellation, so what the heck! Kelly lives in Oklahoma and we jumped at the opportunity to do one more performance of our artsy electro rock before he heads back home. Jenn Rogar is an amazing singer-songwriter/activist and a kind and giving soul. Join us for a night of honest and sweet music from the heart.

Whiskey & Stitches, The Rattlin' Bones, and Stepping Stone

Celtic music has soaked into the pub's bricks and wood. Join us for some of the best local acoustic Celtic folk and The Whiskey & Stitches. This amazing line-up brings forth some of the area’s best practitioners of neo-traditional folk and rock music. Stepping Stone brings it traditional style with fiddle, guitar and mandolin with tin whistles whistling and a bouzouki for good measure. The Rattlin’ Bones, formerly known as Halfpence and Haypenny, come down the hill to SAC town with guitars, banjos, a bouzouki, bodhran, and, we hope, that fine hurdy-gurdy played by Sage Arias. If you have heard Eva sing, this night you’ll be in for a musical treat. They usually do Americana with touches of Celtic (with a tip of the hat to Planxty) and a tad of Medieval. Whiskey & Stitches will add a harder edge to their Irish/American folk base. The band has been adding originals and some new covers lately. Plus, it has regained the keyed services of Steve with accordion in tow. What can we say? This is a kick-ass evening of folk music for the fine folks who like it. Come on!

The Sea Legs Reunion with Blake Abbey and Rich Driver

Adam Varona has been around the block a couple times. He is a fascinating songwriter, a tasty guitarist, and a friendly musical enthusiast that we at Goose-music find absolutely adorable. We only want to pet him and feed him and keep him warm. Guess what, Blake Abbey is back in town, so they decided to do a Sea Legs original line-up show. Blake is a cheeky monkey with chunes galore. Rich Driver is a Californian songwriter that actually captures the sound of California. You can hear the sun in his songs and the trees and the rivers and the sea. Super sweet musical guys this night, don't miss it.

The Bottom Feeders, Katmonkeys, and Dolores 5000
Hey rockers! Get your act together and join us for Dolores 5000 doing her magical metal infused guitar manipulations. Such satisfying fretwork! Incredible lightning licks! Sick tricks and wiggles for your Saturday night. Katmonkeys are a surreal, gender vague, sex positive, kink friendly, band of fashion tragedies. They're gonna knock your socks off! The Bottom Feeders do indie pop and like The Smiths, The Strokes, and Talking Heads. A wonderful night of great music at your favorite public house. Meow!

Benefit for Harm Reduction Services: The Storytellers and Infinite Vastness

We've all had our lives touched in some way or another by the effects of drug abuse. Whether it be a friend or a family member or yourself, it is everywhere. That's why instead of criminalizing and ignoring it, we should seek ways to make it safer or at least make services more available and effective for people who are stuck in addiction. HRS provides syringe exchange services, mobile outreach, HIV/HCV/STI testing, Ryan White Medical Case Management and Overdose Response Training(NARCAN). Located at 2800 Stockton Blvd in Sacramento. The Storytellers are Sacramento's premiere reggae band and they bring the good vibes with a conscious and compassionate message. Infinite Vastness are the latest and the greatest in Sacramento rock & roll. They have a heavy sound and a positive attitude. Let's get together and help the people of Sacramento who are less fortunate.

Ish and Pants Da Buzzard

Ish is a Sacramento rock band that sounds quite punk. Party music! Rock & roll! Good times, let's go! Pants does a twist on old timey sounding music perfect for your Goose. It's like r & b infused banjo music. Or rag timey soul and experimental indie sauce. His voice is good and different from song to song and his banjo skills are nothing to shake a stick at. I think he rocks the suitcase kick-drum too. You could drink whiskey to this music. You could also eat a pastie to it.
