Sunny Sweeney at Cavalier Theater

Sunny Sweeney from Austin, Texas brings wit and honesty into her confessional, complex songwriting for grown-ups, still whiskey-drenched and honk-tonk-ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion, and longing for a child: it’s all here, raw and real. It seem like the world is more open now than ever before to smart women singing smart country. It’s about time. Sweeney is a veteran of the trade, and has logged her miles the old-school way. A three-year residency at the Poodle Dog Lounge in Austin––“It was a dump,” she says. “They didn’t even have a credit card machine or liquor license.”––along with improv and stand-up comedy experience went a long way toward teaching her how to hold a room of cynical drunks in the palm of her hand. The mastery of holes in the wall, major label stint, and serious songwriting chops make Sweeney something of a rarity: an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms. Or, as Rolling Stone put it in September 2016: “Sweeney is one of the rare entertainers who can hold her own at CMA Fest as well as the Americana Fest.” Her appearance at the Cavalier will come fresh off a tour with Cody Jinks and right before a run of shows opening for Miranda Lambert that illustrates Rolling Stone's point.

Hackensaw Boys at Cavalier Theater

For 17 years, the Hackensaw Boys have plowed the asphalt, bringing their raw, gritty version of American roots music to the venues and streets that originally inspired them. Born in Virginia, along the same routes as fellow road warriors/street buskers Old Crow Medicine Show, the Hackensaw Boys have at times operated more as a collective than a band, sometimes boasting up to twenty members. What’s kept them together is a burning hot vision of American roots music brought kicking and screaming into a new age, fueled as much by a rowdy punk spirit as by the traditional masters that first inspired them.Tickets also available at People's Food Co-op and Deaf Ear Records Doors 7:00/Show 8:00$12 adv/$15 DOSAll ages

Todd Snider at Cavalier Theater

$25 Adv/$30 DOS Doors 6:30/Music 7:30 After moving to Memphis, Tennessee, in the mid-1980s and establishing residency at a club named the Daily Planet, Snider was discovered by Keith Sykes, a member of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band. A longtime acquaintance of John Prine and Walker, Sykes began to work with Snider to help advance his career. Prine hired him as an assistant and then invited him to open shows. In time, Buffett heard Snider's demo tapes and signed him to his own label. On his music, Snider has said "I was just trying to come up with the best ... most open hearted ... well-thought-out lyrics I could come up with. I wanted every song to be sad and funny at the same time, vulnerable and entertaining at the same time, personal and universal at the same time. I wanted every song to be as uniquely written as possible and then I wanted to perform them in a studio loose and rugged and hopefully as uniquely as I could.

Devin the Dude at Cavalier Theater

Devin The Dude is regularly regarded as Houston hip hop's "best kept secret". A critically-acclaimed rapper appealing to the smoker's set, Devin The Dude has amassed a loyal fanbase in the underground hip-hop scene for over two decades, starting off as one-third of the Rap-A-Lot Records group, The Odd Squad. Scarface saw talent in him, and persuaded him to become a solo act, leading to Dev's first solo album, "The Dude", back in 1998. Since then, Devin has worked with a slew of the top rappers in the game, from Snoop Dogg to André 3000 to Lil Wayne, to just name a few. For a man who has been in the game longer than some rappers have lived, the Houston native has consistently put in quality work, and is now on his 9th album, "Acoustic Levitation" that was released in 2017 after taking a three year break from hip hop.

Midnight River Choir at Cavalier Theater

The story of Midnight River Choir is proof that sometimes great bands just happen. One night, four strangers ended up on a late night float trip down the Guadalupe River. As they made their way down the river singing songs, the beautiful harmonies floated into the heads of sleeping campers. The next morning, the boys overheard a man telling a friend that he was “awakened by a midnight river choir.” That was all it took. They are not related to each other. They are not a pre-arranged group. They are not session players. They did not meet at a writing appointment set up by executives sporting spray-on tans and wearing their shirts unbuttoned to their belly buttons. Quite the contrary, in fact. Midnight River Choir is one of the most organically grown bands traveling the highways these days. Drawn together out of mutual respect for each others’ talents and the common thread of passion for creating soulful music (and the Guadalupe River) they have established themselves as a “must see” in markets across the United States.

Dessa with MONAKR at Cavalier Theater

Singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations—her résumé as a musician includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury Festival (official), co-compositions for 100-voice choir, performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, and a top-200 entry on the Billboard charts for her album Parts of Speech. She contributed to the #1 album The Hamilton Mixtape; her track, "Congratulations," notched over 5 million streams. As a writer, she’s been published by The New York Times (Magazine), broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio, published two literary collections of her own, and is set to release her first hardcover collection with Dutton Books in the fall of 2018. She's been covered by Pitchfork, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal amongst others. The Los Angeles Times says Dessa “sounds like no one else.” The Utne Reader calls her a “one-woman powerhouse.” On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by a ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor. Dessa’s third full-length album Chime (Doomtree Records) was listed by NPR as one of 2018’s most anticipated albums. In March, she embarks on a world tour through the US, Europe, and Asia. Chicago-based MONAKR formed in 2014 as a collaboration between former members of indie pop band Hey Champ (Saam Hagshenas and Jonathan Marks) and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Matthew Santos. Largely inspired by the Peter Gabriel flavored electro-pop-rock of the ’80s, MONAKR’s music couples with dark R&B and the moody trip-hop of the late ’90s.

Manic Focus with Artifakts at Cavalier Theater

The Cavalier Theater in conjunction with Azara welcome in Manic Focus!! Manic Focus is the beat-bumpin’ project of John “JmaC” McCarten, a Chicago-based electronic music producer hailing from the Twin Cities. A multi-dimensional artist with a rowdy style unbound to any one genre, Manic Focus transcends sound waves by fusing soulful blues with heavy-hitting bass, creating a resonating tone that’s entirely his own. Over the last 6 years, JmaC has released five full-length albums, each one a new evolution in sound and approach. He has also completed a slew of official remixes for artists such as GRiZ, The Floozies, Lettuce, Minnesota and Pretty Lights, and released several works with Pretty Lights Music veterans Break Science. On the road, JmaC has been steadily building his live performance to include additional musicians and elements of production. Jacob Barinholtz is now a mainstay on the drums, and other musical co-conspirators join the two on select dates around the country. He’s also been known to incorporate surprise guests such as Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli, GRiZ, The Floozies’ Matt Hill, and Russ Liquid, to name a few. Occasionally, fans are treated to the rare live fusion of Break Science and Manic Focus, taking the stage as Manic Science. Recent live highlights include performances at The Gorge Amphitheater in WA and Red Rocks Amphitheater in CO, both dates as support for Pretty Lights. Summer 2017 has seen performances from Manic Focus at Summer Camp Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, and Summer Set Music Festival, to name a few.
