Hearts Gone South plays true, solid original country and honky tonk. Born out of an unfortunate tale of love gone wrong and ending in a stack of classic country-style hits. Hailing out of Asheville, the band is led by Tricia Tripp, with a cast and crew of all star country players cranking out tear soaked ballads, heartfelt dance tunes and straight up solid country gold.

The Goddamn Gallows came from the heart of America's Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland and later in Los Angeles, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments. In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of "twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly", they began picking up stray musicians along the way - washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo - creating a sound referred to as "hobocore", "gypsy-punk" or "americana-punk", while never being stuck in any one sound.

Raleigh-based American Aquarium's latest work blends the twang of the pedal steel with the dark, dirty swirl of two electric guitars, creating a sound that's fit for the roadhouse, the honky tonk and the dive bar.

Halloween Show! While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the antiperspirant. But don't dismiss him as a novelty act. He's one hell of a talent and has the music to prove it! Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of lead character "Early Cuyler" in the Cartoon Network's "Squidbillies".
