Casa de la Trova hosted by SuperSones

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and ce...lebrate. SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.

Sarah Potenza // David Robert King

7:30pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Tickets: $13 adv/$15 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

“Channeling Rosetta Tharpe and Mavis Staples, she [Potenza] slayed the crowd…”
- American Songwriter

“Potenza is to the blues what Adele is to pop”
- Rolling Stone

Nashville powerhouse singer Sarah Potenza was everywhere during the Americana Music Festival, and fans and critics extolled her virtues. American Songwriter, AXS.com, Lockeland Springsteen and others praised the songstress as she performed at three events, including the Mercyland show with Emmylou Harris and The Wood Brothers and her Sunday School gospel brunch with Mary Gauthier, Christine Ohlman and others.

Prior to the festival, Potenza’s debut album MONSTER was released to rave reviews.

Rolling Stone named her as one of their “Artists You Need To Know”, and NPR Music exclusively premiered the music video to “Monster” here. The title track is also quickly moving up the Americana Radio chart, as programmers are supporting her gritty sound and unstoppable resolve. NPR Music calls “Monster” a “blistering, riff-propelled personal anthem,” while No Depression states, “You won’t find any gimmicks on MONSTER, just pure unadulterated rock and roll.”

After years of touring with her band Sarah & The Tall Boys, Sarah Potenza was chosen over 50,000 candidates to appear on The Voice. After leaving the show as a top 20 finalist, she headed south to Nashville to start her next chapter. She quickly integrated into the local music scene and she became a staple at the world renowned Bluebird Café and the globally broadcast Music City Roots program. She continues to earn raves for her big voice, which seamlessly blends roots, rock and soul.

Born Catholic in a Mormon town, David Robert King has never been good at blending in. His often dark, occasionally humorous songs are unapologetically personal while grounded in the arid soil of his native Idaho. His songs reverberate with the sting of the high desert wind and the hidden fury of the Snake River. David has toured the world with rock, folk, and bluegrass groups, and extensively as a solo artist. He has shared the stage with Grammy winners and music legends including Josh Ritter, Loudon Wainwright III, Darrell Scott, Over the Rhine, and Don Henry. In 2010, his debut E.P. "Take Me Home" was in the top 40 on the Folk Music Charts. In 2011 he released the full-length album “Midnight in Gloryland” to fan and critical acclaim before disappearing into the coastal northeast. In the summer of 2015 David was lured from hiatus by an invitation to the stage of the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN. When he is not singing or writing songs, he can be found teaching at a high school in Decatur, GA.

Amendola Vs. Blades Vs. Skerik

9:00pm | Doors at 8:30pm

Tickets: $18 adv/ $20 dos dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

“The breadth of what we do is so wide we don't have to think about it,” says longtime Bay Area drummer Scott Amendola, when talking about fellow local organist Wil Blades--the other half of the dynamic music duo known as Amendola vs. Blades. “The cool thing is we can play swingin’ old school jazz, funk and rock, African music, to playing free.” Such dynamic range would prove challenging for any band, let alone one consisting merely of eight limbs, two analog keyboards and a drum kit. But it’s a challenge the two friends have eagerly met gig after gig since their auspicious first show together, a performance of Duke Ellington’s “Far East Suite” as an organ and drums arrangement, ten years ago. “It’s all about keeping it fresh,”adds Amendola. “And keeping the audience engaged.” And keeping audiences sonically freshened and engaged throughout their ever-evolving decade-long stint hasn’t been a problem for this uncanny duo, who’ve imprinted plenty of nondescript juke joints: the High Sierra Music Festival, SF Jazz, and the iconic Fillmore, alike with their slithery sound, enough to make stalwart critics like the SF Chronicle’s Joel Selvin squawk: "As for Wil Blades and Scott Amendola, these two Young Turks of the San Francisco jazz scene are bringing the organ-drum duo into the 21st century."
