Dawn and Hawkes Return to the Radio Room July 11th

Indie-folk singing duo Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes met in Austin, Texas while dancing together at a blues bar. Their initial duo effort, Golden Heart, climbed to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landed at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums kicking off a whirlwind of cross-country and international touring performances. Their music draws inspiration from American deserts and mountains, to the South Australian coast while navigating a shared journey through mortality, grief and compassion for differing perspectives. Upon returning to Austin, they set upon building a new home and self-producing their second full-length album, The Other Side, released in July 2018.
Show starts at 7:30p and Doors open at 7.  Tickets are $20

The Haymarket Squares July 26th

The Haymarket Squares are Arizona’s finest purveyors of punkgrass. Righteous anger meets 4-part harmonies and bluegrass instruments for a moshpit hoedown!
Starting as a trio in Phoenix, Arizona in 2009, Haymarket Squares has since played over 500 shows across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Known as purveyors of punkgrass, Haymarket Squares presents rabble-rousing lyrics with a catchy melody! Mark Allred (vocals, slide guitar and harmonica), Jayson James (fiddle), John Luther Norris (vocals, guitar and kazoo) and Marc Oxborrow (vocals and bass) have found that they make their best music when they're angry about something.
Haymarket Squares showcase upbeat, happy sounding songs with edgy lyrics that poke fun at the establishment. They’ve found they make their best music when they’re angry about something. However, they want fans to dance and smile with the empowered feeling they can overcome anything together. Tickets are $20.
