Chosen Country: A Rebellion in the West by James Pogue

24 May

05-24-2018 to 05-24-2018 – In a remote corner of Oregon, James Pogue found himself at the heart of a rebellion. Granted unmatched access by Ammon Bundy to the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, Pogue met ranchers and militiamen ready to die fighting the federal government. He witnessed the fallout of communities riven by politics and the danger of uncompromising religious belief. The occupation ended in the shooting death of one rancher, the imprisonment of dozens more, and a firestorm over the role of government that engulfed national headlines.

Hawthorne Heights with Listener, Hotel Books, Sienna Skies, and Heavy Things

24 May

05-24-2018 to 05-24-2018 – Sometimes the things you love give you HOPE. Sometimes you HATE the things you love the most. But, often times the things you love can make you HURT.

Hawthorne Heights return to form with Hurt, the long awaited third EP in their Hate/Hope/Hurt trilogy. Hurt not only shines with elements rooted in their classic sound, but also showcases a maturity and level of confidence that can only be honed after twelve years of being a band. After spending the better part of a year on the road celebrating the ten year anniversary of their debut album The Silence in Black and White, the band returned home to Ohio to begin writing for Hurt. Feeling newly inspired and clearly invigorated, what resulted was a collection of eight songs that celebrate looking back while boldly pushing forward. “Everything that ends will soon become new again.” Vocalist/Lyricist JT Woodruff says: “Sometimes the past haunts you like a ghost, but we weren’t afraid to become the ghosts of what we used to be. There is still some life and hope left in these bones, and we will continue to suck the marrow out of life.”

Horse Feathers

24 May

05-24-2018 to 05-24-2018 – Horse Feathers feels like a secret you don’t really want to share. Over twelve years and five albums, a passionate fan base has experienced this band as a precious commodity that they want to keep close to their hearts. One reason for this can be found in lead singer Justin Ringle’s distinctive voice, at once vulnerable and piercing, and in the quality of the music: gorgeous, lush string arrangements surrounding stark, visceral lyrics whose bite makes a piquant juxtaposition to the surrounding beauty.
