8pm – Lake Charlatans (Lucinda Williams tribute) & Casual Coalition
Thursday, January 17 @ 8:00 pm - 1:00 am
Lake Charlatans is a rollicking tribute band celebrating the songs of beloved troubadour Lucinda Williams. Named in honor of Williams’ hometown of Lake Charles, Louisiana, Lake Charlatans features Avery Hellman ( Ismay) on vocals and guitar); Mick Hellman (The Well Known Strangers) on drums and vocals; Joshua Zucker (The Jones Gang, Rowan Brothers, Poor Man’s Whiskey) on bass and vocals; Austin de Lone (Eggs Over Easy, Elvis Costello) on keys; Andy Allen-Fahlander (T Sisters) on guitar and mandolin; and Dave Zirbel (San Geronimo) on electric and pedal steel guitars.
Born on the stage of countless nights at Terrapin Crossroads, The Casual Coalition are a branch from the “community music tree” that was planted at the Marincounty venue, owned by Grateful Dead bassist, Phil Lesh. The Coalition features mainstays, Craig MacArthur, Brian Rashap, and Scott Guberman, as well as numerous collaborators that rotate within, such as Stu Allen (Phil Lesh & Friends, Mars Hotel), Dan “LEBO” Lebowitz (ALO), Greg Loiacono (Mother Hips), Scott Law (Phil Lesh & Friends, Cosmic Twang), Mark Karan (Ratdog, Phil Lesh & Friends), Dave Zirbel (San Geronimo), Ezra Lipp (Phil Lesh & Friends), Danny Luehring (San Geronimo). All are a product of the intermingling of various musical collaborations that happen on a daily basis at Terrapin Crossroads. The band also showcases some original songs put forth by each contributing member. The songs are then nurtured and grown with each configuration. Categorized as improvisational indie-rock, the band has been known to really explore the songs in an exciting, different way each and every night.
