The Commonheart

to Apr 29

The Commonheart

With gritty vocals over rock riffs and horns, The Commonheart delivers an emotion-packed, soulful sound that lights up any stage. Frontman Clinton Clegg is a powerhouse who commands full attention with his limitless onstage energy and vocal range. The new album "Grown" is a remarkable display of each member's talent interlacing heavy blues, soul, and gospel influence across trumpet, saxophone, keys, guitar, and singers. The Commonheart's sound is a true testament to the past while completely holding its own as one of today's most promising acts.

Cinco de Panic (Matinee)

All souls come into the Casa de Half Step for another Sunshine Matinee and to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the boys from Panic Stricken. We will once again play many awesome Widespread Panic songs to your heart's content outside in hopefully beautiful weather this time. We are sure that the folks at Half Step will whip up a fun drink and maybe there will be some grub there, who knows? We'll play the jams and leave the rest of the party to them. Of course it is a FREE show as always and KID FRIENDLY

Sobre la Tierra y no sobre la Tierra
Así también se hasta con los que amas
Angeles y seres que esperan serlo"

Money Chicha (FREE SHOW)
May

5:00 PM17:00

Money Chicha (FREE SHOW)

Money Chicha is an Austin, Texas based group featuring members of the Grammy-award winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma and its offshoot funk outfit Brownout which performs a fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched and percussion-heavy style of music inspired by the sounds of Peru and Colombia in the 60s and 70s. This style of music, sometimes called “chicha” music, is known for its infectious Latin beat, its psychedelic, surf guitar pyrotechnics and its melodies influenced by the indigenous culture of the Andes mountains.

The group’s sound is derived from the exhilarating syncopations of congas, cowbell and timbales, the gritty tones of combo organs and vintage synthesizers, effects-laden guitar melodies, insistent basslines and a healthy dose of trippy effects. Money Chicha is a modern translation of this South American musical style interpreted by highly skilled veterans of America’s most vibrant music town. In their capable hands, the “chicha” genre takes on a new and unique character, guaranteed to move one to both dance and listen, entranced by the undeniable rhythms and virtuosic displays of musicality.

D channels the galactic harmonies of his inspiration into his own brand of modern funk- it comes as no surprise that his mastering of the electronic ASR keyboard holds an arsenal of key original beats that is putting a revolutionary spin on the growing electronic music industry.
