The Big Dipper Spokane – $8 http://bpt.me/2993443 , $11 door Through The Roots - Cali-reggae rock. From what was once a dream inspired by close friends, to humble beginnings filled with living room jams, late nights writing songs in the garage, backyard house parties and countless complaints from neighbors, San Diego-based reggae/rock band Through the Roots was born. Through the Roots quickly moved from the streets and backyard shows to touring in 2010 and soon hooked up for West Coast and national tours with some of the reggae/rock genres top headliners. The San Diego band eventually added Corrick Watson (lead guitar/vocals) and Budda Foster (bassist/keys) from Los Angeles to the talented, five-man mix.

Parker Millsap w/ Parc Crecelius at The Bartlett
The Bartlett – PARKER MILLSAP Parc Crecelius opens THU · JULY 27, 2017 Doors: 7:30 pm / Show: 8:00 pm $15.00 At only 24 years of age, Oklahoma native Parker Millsap is quickly making a name for himself with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. He recently wrapped up a banner year, which included his network television debut on CONAN, an invitation to play with Elton John at the Apple Music Festival, an Austin City Limits taping and an Americana Music Association nomination for Album of the Year, as well as winning the International Folk Music Awards' Artist Of the Year. Parker's most recent release, The Very Last Day, has received praise from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, LA Times, Austin Chronicle and Rolling Stone to name a few. Parker grew up in the tiny town of Purcell, OK (pop. 5,952) where he attended a Pentecostal church with his family three times a week for most of his youth. Though Parker doesn't consider himself very religious these days, the experiences engraved upon him inform his songwriting. Blending that fire and brimstone preaching with rock, country, blues and Waits-ian imagery, he has created a sound uniquely his own. Parker first picked up an acoustic guitar at nine, then plugged in and went electric after getting into Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, eventually starting a cover band, Fever in Blue, with classmate Michael Rose who still plays bass with him today. After graduating high school, he moved to Northern California, where he interned at Prairie Sun Recording, the studio where Tom Waits recorded Bone Machine and Mule Variations. Returning to Oklahoma, he put down the electric guitar and got into songwriting, releasing an indie album in 2012, Palisade, which he sold from the back of his van. A trip to Nashville found Parker playing at the Tin Pan South songwriter's festival, where his performance impressed Old Crow Medicine Show's manager so much that he invited Parker to open a string of dates for the band, later leading to a slot on their New Year's Eve gig at the Ryman Auditorium. Parker has also opened dates for Jason Isbell, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lake Street Dive, Lucinda Williams and Shovels & Rope. “I like to set goals for myself that are impossible to reach,” he explains. “That way, I always have something to aim for, a better song, different characters, new stories. I just want to pay the bills and feed my dog, and maybe buy a new guitar every now and then. That’s all I need. I don’t want to be Elvis Presley, but I wouldn’t complain if a million girls screamed for me, either. Just don’t tell my girlfriend that.” Parker Millsap is ready to share his Oklahoma roots with the rest of the country, and, hopefully, the world.

Pegasus IX
Pegasus MilSim – The war rages on; from Elizabethtown to Fort Zangaro, hundreds of lives have been lost in the ongoing struggle between the Zamundan Defense Force and the 1st Mugambi Scouts. Small communities change sides regularly, with refugees streaming from the frontlines leaving towns caught in the center of the struggle virtual ghost towns. Mugambi forces have dug into defensive positions to the southeast of Fort Zangaro. They’ve brought mortars forward to try and break the ZDF’s hold on several small villages in the area. Their plan is simple: Drive the ZDF out of the villages or flatten the villages. For the ZDF, it’s just another day of driving someone from their country. First it was the imperialist mercenaries. Then it was the Americans and their Central Intelligence Agency. For several years now it has been the invading armies from Mugambi. They have been them before. They plan to beat them again.

Eclectic Approach - Dance Pop Garage Rock
Hotel RL Spokane - Free Outdoor Summer Concert Series – Eclectic Approach is a band built on perseverance. After three self released albums and four years of constant touring, the band was selected at SXSW as the top unsigned band in the U.S. by the Ourstage Panel, which included industry heavyweights Bruce Tyler (former VP of Sony and Columbia Music), Scott Igoe (talent booker for Jimmy Kimmel Live), Sharon Dastur (Program Director Z100, New York, NY) and Lee Dannay (Vice President of A&R Warner/Chappell Music). The band was flown to New York City to record an EPK with legendary producer David Hewitt (U2, Aretha Franklin) and Emmy Award winning director Mitchell Stewart. Most recently the band was a musical guest on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. Originally a hip-hop group, EA’s music has grown and developed into a blend of electro-funk, dance, pop and garage rock that just feels and sounds like a party. “We just love a good party,” said singer Jowed Hadeed, “we want people to come to a show and just freak out for a while. It’s cathartic for us and them.” The definition of eclectic is, “deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.” For Eclectic Approach, this definition not only serves as a guide for creating music, but also as a philosophy to live by. “It seems like a lot of people now are moving towards a more eclectic way of living… taking what makes sense to them from all over the place. Everyone in this band has their own set of influences, musically and otherwise, and we really work to create an open dialogue with new ideas. It’s what has kept the band together for this long and keeps us moving forward” said guitarist Ryan Jander. Although most people would immediately identify the music as “pop” because of its accessibility, the blend of influences and musical styles completely embraces the name Eclectic. Guitarist Justin MacDonald notes that, “the trick is to create something that sounds simple, but has layers and depth when you really listen to it. You can grab someone’s attention right off, but with repeated listens they hear all these little subtle nuances that add to the over all effect and really hook the listener.” After their last album, Jump Into Life, Eclectic Approach began to hone their sound in the studio and on stage into a more unified vision. Their newest single, “All That It’s Missing (Mind Control)” was released in October of 2012 and demonstrates the evolution of their sound.

Joel Ansett with Mark Ward at The Bartlett
The Bartlett – Joel Ansett grew up in Spokane, WA but got his songwriting start just outside of Pittsburgh, PA while attending college. Performing around campus built enough momentum that upon graduating in 2012, he began pursuing a career as a full time songwriter and musician. He settled in Denver in 2014 and has since released a full length album and found success in a number of songwriting competitions, the latest being 3rd place recognition in the 2016 Telluride Troubadour Contest, and a first place prize in the 2017 International Acoustic Music Awards. Dubbed by The Huffington Post as “the sonic lovechild of John Legend and The Tallest Man On Earth,” Joel’s songs combine folk and R&B to great effect; and beyond the music’s sonic qualities, Artist Review wrote: “This album is soul therapy. It is effective and real. ‘The Nature of Us’ takes us within and shines our own light back at us.”
