Admission is $10. All tickets will be sold at the door the night of the event. 

About the bands: 

Harli & the House of Juniper is Charlottesville four-piece collection of style, swagger, and a little bit of edge! Vibration with a message! Get your mind blown! Genres border jam, punk, soul, and alternative rock, with heavy influence of artists from all genres.

Breakers are a rigorously-calculated, riff-driven, proto-punk alt-rock group out of Charlottesville that deliver an acerbic, infectious sound reminiscent of The Strokes and Queens of the Stone Age. It’s a realized compositional style spray-painted with simple, straightforward New York rock n’ roll.

About the performers: 

“Sally Rose has all the charisma of a rock ‘n’ roll star paired with the grit and charm of an old-fashioned Southern girl. A woman of various musical incarnations, she brings attitude and solid chops [to every show]” (Cville Weekly). Crooning about ghosts, witches, moons and, heartache in a pin-up get up. Sally Rose’s music twirls, it shines, it tip-toes & seduces, you’ll fall in love & get drunk off of it. It’ll melt your heart, and break you down.

Erin Lunsford is a singer/songwriter and an accomplished musician on guitar, piano, and voice. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia and just recorded her debut EP at White Star Sound in Louisa, Virginia.
