10:45 pm – Pocket FishRmen – Another Corn Loving mainstay, the Pocket FishRmen give exactly how many you know whats. Singer and lyricist Brant Bingamon has recently changed his focus from simian on human violence to the foibles of the health crises facing aging rockers, some of which was chronicled in the band’s thirty year/thirty song best of ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ which was released in late 2017 by Saustex.
9:20 pm – Hickoids featuring Frontier Dan – after bringing down the house at The White Horse last year the Hickoids decided to bring Frontier Dan (leader of his own act, The Frontier Circus) back to town from his home in Conway, AR for a command performance. Upon securing a crop-duster for his conveyance (Dan insists on flying direct) the ACLF is pleased to announce that Dan will indeed be live on stage with his corn-wielding amigos for a special set that will include an Arkansas Twist Contest.
8 pm – Harvey McLaughlin – Harvey released an album for Saustex earlier this year titled ‘Tabloid News’. From San Antonio, the young songwriter has crafted a sound that reminds of the piano rock greats of the 70’s and 80’s like Warren Zevon, Randy Newman, Elton John and Tom Waits while still sporting a defiantly contemporary twist.
7 pm – Jean Caffeine – Ms. Caffeine has lived many lives in the American Underground, the first of which was codified on her 2017 album ‘Sadie Saturday Nite’, a musical memoir about coming of age in late 70’s San Francisco. In the years since she has fronted a number of acts, most notably the proto-alt-country Jean Caffeine’s All-Night Truckstop, and holds the distinction of holding what is believed to have been the first ever SXSW “day party” way back in the late 80’s. She’ll be joined this night by her band a will likely lean heavily towards the material on ‘Sadie’.
