Turnstile Junkpile + Scott Dennis + Simon Stanley Ward


Turnstile Junkpile 10pm Named after a Townes Van Zandt song, Turnstile Junkpile are a British Americana band. Their guitar-led, retro and country-influenced sound recalls artists such as The Jayhawks and Neil Young and features appealing harmonies, pedal steel, banjo, and some serious grooves. Scott Dennis 9pm UK debut from front-man with Brooklyn-based band The Dirt Floor Revue, who combine the twang of Buck Owens, the grit of Johnny Cash and the edge of the Flying Burrito Brothers to create their own modern urban country sound. Other i nfluences include Webb Pierce, Lefty Frizzel, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Old 97's, Gillian Welch, Uncle Tupelo, John Prine, Chuck Berry and Link Wray. FREE SCOTT DENNIS CD TO FIRST 25 PEOPLE! Simon Stanley Ward 8pm Former singer with the now sadly defunct band Black Bart, Simon Stanley Ward is a young country and Americana singer from London. Unashamedly adorned in cowboy hat and shirt, he even has a song called American Voice which wittily pre-empts any criticisms about Englishmen singing in American accents (although the truth is, he doesnt lay it on too thick and is voice is wonderfully distinctive).
