VIDEO: T Sisters & Hillstomp

Complete show video HERE courtesy of Howlive.
Taking our show on the road again, this time we landed at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael with Oakland’s own T Sisters and our old pals Hillstomp from Portland, Oregon. Fall in love with the T’s beautiful harmonies and wonderful covers of the Grateful Dead, Lady Gaga and Chumbawamba and rock out to the raw hill country blues stomp of Hillstomp, a band we first discovered playing in the bushes of Golden Gate Park some 10 years ago. 
Thanks as always to our sponsors 21st Amendment Brewery and Whetstone Wine Cellars and our video partners Howlive. To benefit Blue Bear School of Music.

Next Show: T Sisters + Hillstomp Free Matinee Terrapin Crossroads Bar Saturday 1/20 4pm

Before their nighttime show in the Grate Room at Terrapin Crossroads on Saturday 1/20, we’re thrilled to be hosting the T Sisters (trio) and Hillstomp in the bar for a FREE matinee at 4pm. RSVP here. If you’re not on Facebook please leave a message below if you plan on attending.

Oakland’s T Sisters embody harmony. It’s in their blood, bones, and history. Erika, Rachel and Chloe have been singing and writing music together since childhood. You’ll be blown away by their effortless melodies and gorgeous tunes.

Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo Hillstomp is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp.

Please join us in the afternoon, have some dinner afterwards and stick around for the show in the Grate Room that night. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in Marin.

VIDEO: Chris Robinson

VIDEO of our latest show: Chris Robinson was the perfect guest. Charming, funny, self-deprecating and insanely talented. We laughed, we cried and just had a ball as Chris talked about his latest project the Chris Robinson Brotherhood as well the The Black Crowes, growing up in the South and his love for the Bay Area and the Grateful Dead. Oh, and the tunes were spectacular too. Enjoy this special show.
