Busman's Holiday, T.V. Mike and the Scarecrowes, The Sleeping Ghost
500 4th Street
San Francisco, CA, 94107
This event is 21 and over
A Busman’s Holiday performance begins with the thump of kick-pedal on suitcase and the tuning of acoustic guitar strings, two affable brothers quietly considering where to take their audience first. They may begin with an exultant and driving harmony or a ballad in a melancholy mode, but not before they have laughed and shared stories with their audience, patient and cheerful, assuring the crowd that they are in good hands. As Lewis and Addison begin to sing, their voices together evoke the Southern Indiana where their music was born. One can’t help but feel the presence of the songs’ characters in the room beside you, the music offering intimate details from vivid strangers. The Rogers brothers’ appeal has never been limited to a niche audience. Tested on the road for years, playing music at honky-tonks and roadhouses, moth-eaten lounges crawling with night creatures, punk palaces, last-wave folk huts, they’ve honed their skills and free-flowing banter to the point where they’ve been able to endear themselves to all corners.
T.V. Mike and the Scarecrowes
T.V. Mike and the Scarecrowes are a Cosmic Twang Stomp band hailing from the West Coast via Indiana. Their songs follow the aesthetic of the Great American Songbook. The core of the group moved to California in 2007 and have been rolling up and down mountains and deserts since.
TV Mike aka Mike Klinge began playing music in Bloomington, IN in 1999 under The Pious Companion. The group went on a tour and had the pleasure of opening up for The Constantines and My Morning Jacket. In 2005, TV Mike met Andrea DelaRosa and gathered a backing band called the Scarecrowes. The group then moved to California and has rotated through a lot of members with the core of TV Mike, Andrea DelaRosa, Matt Lundquist, and Aaron Deer staying consistent.
TV Mike and the Scarecrowes have shared the stage with: The Avett Brothers, The Blank Tapes, Austin Lucas, Rev. Peyton's BDB, Horse Feathers, Beachwood Sparks, The Fruit Bats, Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Easy Leaves, Dead Winter Carpenters, Hillstomp, Rose Windows, Love as Laughter, tUnE-YarDs and many more.
The Sleeping Ghost
THE SLEEPING GHOST is vulnerability soaked in vibe. Emerging from a sonic landscape of moody keyboards, reverb-drenched guitars, undeniably-infectious bass lines, and intensely intimate vocals.
