Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery 9pm
Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery” may not fit on a marquis, but the name suits the band just fine. Joshua and his folk band borrowed their brand from a 1903 silent Western and have crafted their sound in that sure-footed Americana tradition ever since. The crux of their music is in the storytelling – stories that embrace the fact that we are all human together. The band has two new releases: The Commonwealth EP, available for free on Noise Trade, and a new LP, Man Is Born For Trouble, available from digital outlets.
The band may have originated in the heartland, but there is something distinctly Southern about their songs. There is dusty peacefulness in the lulling folk that evokes comparisons to Iron and Wine and Fionn Regan, and an unmistakable grit that erupts like a bar fight when the band delves into their rockier side. Joshua and the band spent two years in Indiana perfecting this duality as they played every Midwest bar and coffeehouse that would have them.
Their self-produced debut EP, We All Say Hello, enjoyed immense exposure and success on Noise Trade in 2011, sharing the chart with acts like The Civil Wars and Young the Giant. They subsequently released their first full length, Traveler, which Stereo Subversion heralded as having “diverse harmonies” and “immense depth," and followed up in 2013 with their newest record, Man Is Born For Trouble, which honed in on the lush Appalachian timbre for which they aimed.
Download their free Noise Trade EP, The Commonwealth, and board the train today.
"Heartland trio Joshua Powell and company is a storming folk-rock outfit bred for the tavern. Careful picking and vintage Appalachian instrumentation keep the Great Train Robbery full in sound and authentic in nature." - Willamette Week

Paint Nite painting party www.paintnite.com 6:30pm-8:30pm
Paint Nite® is a new concept of blending two timeless pastimes, artistic painting and drinking cocktails, as a way to draw patrons into local pubs with a unique opportunity to socialize and be creative. The 2-hour Paint Nite painting parties are held daily with 25+ people in attendance who follow the step-by-step instructions of one master local artist from blank canvas to masterpiece.
Paint Nite® is about making art accessible to people who don’t consider themselves artists or creative in any way. Paint Nite is about fostering a fun, low stress, non-judgmental environment that inspires everyone to enjoy the process of creating something from nothing. We want the anxiety that people may feel about doing something “wrong”, to be displaced by a fun night of socializing with friends and having a relaxing, creative time. For many customers, Paint Nite will be a novel and memorable experience, as many have not touched a paint brush since elementary school.
