Fri., Oct. 13Wild Ponies (album release show). Tix $15/$18. ** Season Passes Accepted** Although they’re based in Nashville, Wild Ponies have always looked to Southwest Virginia — where bandmates Doug and Telisha Williams were both born and raised — for inspiration. There, in mountain towns like Galax, old-time American music continues to thrive, supported by a community of fiddlers, flat-pickers, and fans. Wild Ponies pay tribute to that powerful music and rugged landscape with 2017’s Galax, a stripped-back album that nods to the band’s history while still pushing forward. Doug and Telisha took some of their favorite musicians from Nashville (Fats Kaplin, Will Kimbrough, Neilson Hubbard and Audrey Spillman) and met up with revered Old-Time players from Galax, Virginia (Snake Smith, Kyle Dean Smith, and Kilby Spencer). Recorded in the shed behind Doug’s old family farm in the Appalachians (steps away from the site where Doug and Telisha were married), it returns Wild Ponies to their musical and geographic roots. Tickets will be available soon at the Daily Grind and Rising Sun Breads. Buy Tix HERE.



Fri., Nov. 3 – The Commonheart w/ local opener Prosperity’s Folly. Tix $12/$15. ** Season Passes Accepted ** 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. … Prosperity’s Folly is a brand new local band led by Martinsville’s Riggs Roberson. Fans of Left Hip Pocket and Turkey Feather Get Together will recognize many of the members on stage and love their tunes! Tickets will be available soon at the Daily Grind and Rising Sun Breads.
