Jon Spencer is back, and he is ON FIRE!
Get ready for Jon Spencer & the HITmakers to BURN your play house down with their new long-player, SPENCER GETS IT LIT!
The incredible, indelible Jon Spencer (Blues Explosion, Boss Hog, Pussy Galore, Heavy Trash, etc) is back with the incendiary HITmakers  -and with his HOTTEST record yet!  Spencer Gets It Lit is classic Jon Spencer taken to the extremis–electro-boogie, constructivist art pop, a psychedelic swamp of industrial sleaze and futurist elegance. It is an epic master work of freak beat from the world’s weirdest garage. Across brain-boggling layers of fury, fuzz guitar, and a crash-bang battery of phaser blasts, photon torpedoes, and otherworldly zounds, he frantically spits, croons, rhapsodizes, and seduces. Spencer Gets It Lit is his most complex and groovy record in years, a dark, danceable odyssey–both a studied take-down of the early 21stcentury, and a celebration of the place were electricity meets the mind. Thirteen wicked hot songs of love, loss, lust, life—from the Farf is a-fueled, warped psycho-punk rave-up of “Junk Man,” to the intimate lover's plea of “My Hit Parade,” to the outer-space end-of-days country funk of “Worm Town,"Spencer Gets It Lit delivers all of the friction, excitement, and post-modern depravity one could ever ask for! Says Spencer, "Send out the Hit Signal! This is the most uncompromising album I've ever made!" And the HITs just keep on coming!

WEDNESDAY FEB. 1st - 8pm

Thelma and the Sleaze is an independent all-female, queer southern rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. The group
is the brainchild of lead vocalist and guitar player Lauren "LG" Gilbert and features an evolving cast of A-team players
to back her up for an unforgettable live experience.
LG is the embodiment of hustle. As the driving force behind Thelma and The Sleaze, she is the songwriter, the
visionary, the take-no-shit-from-anyone front woman that is single handedly keeping rock and roll alive. Thelma and
The Sleaze has been touring the US for years building a legion of fans, affectionally called her creepers. The growing
social media presence, the hit podcast, the features with Yamaha Guitars are really all the result of her incredible
songwriting, visceral guitar playing, and the guts to deliver on her vision of what Rock and Roll should be.
LG has also launched two successful seasons of their Podcast “Queen of Shit Mountain”. Each episode features
legendary musicians such as Tanya Tucker, Brittany Howard, Juliana Hatfield, Kate Pierson, Lori Barber, Patty
Schemel, Mary Ramirez and Margo Price.
