Puddles Pity Party

August 24, 2018

The alter-ego of super-sized baritone and Kingsized band leader Mike Grier, Puddles has been a mainstay of the Atlanta entertainment scene since 1998. The six-foot eight inches entertainer has come to international fame with his heartfelt renditions of famous songs and distinctive whiteface clown costume. An enigmatic figure, he is known for not taking interviews in character, but has performed at various festivals in both the USA (Adult Swim's Aqua Teen Hunger Force's tour in 2010) and at countless worldwide comedy festivals, including the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Four-time Grammy Award Winner Lyle Lovett is known for his intelligent Western Swing-tinged Country Music. Like the great songwriters of the late 70's, in the class of Randy Newman and Guy Clarke, Lovett never did just fit into one genre. His witty lyrics and eclectic mix of sounds ranging from folk to big band swing form an unforgettable catalogue of songs and although he emerged in the 80's, this musical chameleon is still a fearless innovator in the Country world to this day.

September 7, 2018

Alternative country singer/songwriter Neko Case has spent the last 20 years winning over a cult audience for her smoky, sophisticated vocals and the downcast beauty of her music. With a Gothic melancholy, the Grammy nominee encapsulates an alt- country mood, a genre known as darkly as 'Country Noir, with a voice that spins narratives unafraid of confrontation and sharing her fury.
