ROCK OFF MAIN STREET: ROCK SHOWDOWN SEMIFINALS

This event was cancelled in February due to snowstorm.

TCAN's successful Rock Off Main teen music program is an all-ages show that provides a venue for bands in this region to take their eclectic mix of music out of their basements and put it on stage where it belongs, performing for their peers.

Winners of the Rock Off Main Street Showdown Semi-finals will compete for a partial scholarship to Berklee College of Music's Summer Program. Bands to perform are: TBD.

Admission: non-member $8 member $8
Discounts (seniors, students, children) are available

GAELIC STORM (Rock)

This performance will be Standing Room Only. In addition, as a courtesy to patrons, wine and beer will be served.

Gaelic Storm steps back into the ring with the dazzling #1 Billboard World Album Chicken Boxer, and comes out swinging with a mix of empowering anthems and traditional ballads, all with their signature acoustic sound of indie-folk and world grooves with a Celtic tradition.

Recently they've performed on the same bill with the Zac Brown Band, Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett. www.gaelicstorm.com

ENTER THE HAGGIS (Rock)

As a courtesy to patrons, wine and beer will be served at this performance.

Eclectic. Electric. Roots Rock Reinvented. 5 albums and a decade on the road have seen Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act. They record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly.

An uncompromising commitment to their music and fans helped them garner top ten charting positions on Billboard and Amazon, and their very own PBS special. www.enterthehaggis.com

THE YO-YO PEOPLE (Family)

A Yo-Yo Show for the 21st Century!

Who would have thought you could make an entire show out of yo-yos? This husband and wife duo bring back that nostalgic toy, reminding you of old favorite tricks such as Walk the Dog and Rock the Baby, then amazing you with new and unusual tricks.

JONATHAN EDWARDS (Folk)

He’s neither grizzled nor nostalgic, but veteran artist Edwards is still warm as sunshine, real as truth, and intimate as a visit between old friends. With uncompromising musical integrity, he delivers songs of passion, insight, and humor rendered in a powerful tenor.

As Edward journeys into the future, remember his promise from 1971: “Sunshine, come on back another day … I promise you I’ll still be singing.”  www.jonathanedwards.net

TCAN FOLK/ACOUSTIC OPEN MIC

The Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night at TCAN has been a tradition since the opening of The Center years ago. And we could try to describe this event by mentioning all the significant songwriters and talented musicians who have played and sung and captured a special moment in time.

But the TCAN Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night isn't about individuals so much as it is about a community. Everyone is welcome to perform – the event starts at 8pm but sign-up starts at 7:30pm.

Hosted alternate weeks by Mark Stepakoff. 

Admission: non-member $5 member $0

Event Date: 
Tue, 03/05/2013 - 20:00

Alejandro Escovedo & the Sensitive Boys (Sawtelle Room)

Alejandro Escovedo's whole life has pretty much been documented already and reads like a "How to Make Rock and Roll A Lifelong Profession" primer.

Amy Black (Ballroom)

Amy Black is coming back to where she started her music career - right here at the Bull Run. She'll be performing with her trio for a special LIVE CD release show.

This Boston-based singer/songwriter with storytelling and Southern tradition in her blood has, in record time, become one of the most sought after acts on the East Coast, sharing stages with Chris Isaak, The Courtyard Hounds and Rodney Crowell and headlining at some of the region's best venues.
