Good Morning Bedlam, Stone & Snow 10/10
October 10, 2019 07:30 PM
Join us for a special Thursday night! If you like GOOD music, this one is for YOU!
Good Morning Bedlam (Minneapolis, MN) - Indie Folk
Good Morning Bedlam has become an innovative force in the midwest folk scene. Their shows are known for their contagious energy, with members careening about the stage, jumping and dancing with a wild playfulness. With tight soaring three part harmonies, and thumping kick-drum, they captivate their audience night after night with no intention of slowing down. Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music. “We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound,” says Isaak, frontman of GMB. Just when you think you have Good Morning Bedlam pegged, they take you in another direction. You will be treated to a haunting waltz, whistling, jazz scatting, and the euphoria of the violin melodies. When it comes to their lyrical storytelling, Isaak says, “We’re desperate to connect to people through the common human experiences that we write about and the exuberance of our live show. People have a lot of choices of how they’ll kick-back, so we intend to deliver a show where they can be free--to share in whatever they need to--joy, grief, anger, gratefulness, or bedlam!”
Stone & Snow (Central Illinois) - Alternative Folk, Indie Rock

Winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest - 2019 NAMM Edition for "Love is a Weapon." Stone & Snow is an alt-folk pairing of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Karen Bridges and Clint Thomson. In 2012, they began a collaboration filled with close harmonies and thoughtful lyrics. They gave it a name that gives nod to the mountain landscapes of the West-- Stone & Snow.
Successful crowdfunding campaigns resulted in three self-produced full-length studio albums: Love is a Weapon (July 12, 2019), Devil That I Know (May 6, 2016,) and These are the Hills(June 17, 2014). All three albums were recorded by David Rossi of Bombsight Recording Studio (Bloomington, IL). Their songs have taken them on the road to places like Summer Camp Music Festival (Chillicothe, IL), Mile of Music Festival (Appleton, WI), the NAMM Show (Anaheim, CA) and the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
Stone & Snow will be performing as a Duo on this occasion!
All Ages Until 10PM
