TBS Announces its Fall Lineup

We are happy to bring you our 17th Fall Lineup at George’s Roadhouse. All shows start at 9 PM and tickets will be available 2 weeks prior to the show at Ducky’s (536-1344).

On Saturday,  September 30th, we present Lindsay Beaver and The Twentieth Street Wailers (Halifax and now Texas). Lindsay Beaver is a force of nature that knows no bounds. While lead singing for the band and playing the drums, she is forging a sound that incorporates rock, soul punk and blues. The band’s successes in Canada and around the world encouraged them to move to Texas, where they continue to hone their sound in the cradle of roots music. A regular gig at Antone’s helped them connect with the roots royalty, many of whom will be on the forthcoming record (including Jimmy Vaughn). Should be a good one folks, and we will share some of the new music as soon as we have it.

On Saturday, November 11, we present The Chris O”Leary Band (New York). Chris O”Leary has got the chops. Not only has he fronted Levon Helm’s Barnburners, but he has paid his dues by serving in the Marines for 7 years. Now, on the back of several albums of his own, he is coming to town with a 6 piece band (including a horn section!) to show you how it’s done. Sharply insightful writing, the ability to bring it down and ratchet it up, all of which should make for a great evening. We hope to see you there folks.
