Thursday: Jeremy Enigk
Enigmatic Seattle legend Jeremy Enigk rose to fame in the mid-’90s as frontman of the seminal emo band Sunny Day Real Estate. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums on Sub Pop, Sunny Day Real Estate disbanded and Enigk began a solo career, debuting in 1996 with the rich, symphonic Return of the Frog Queen, which has since become a cult classic. After releasing one album with The Fire Theft, Enigk returned to his solo career, releasing World Waits, Missing Link, and OK Bear. 2016 marks the 20th Anniversary of Jeremy’s debut solo album Return of the Frog Queen.

Friday: Cory Branan
Throughout his decade-and-a-half-long career, Cory Branan has been too punk for country, too country for punk, too Memphis for Nashville, and probably a little too Cory Branan for anyone’s damn good. He has proven himself as a top-notch songwriter (Chuck Ragan recently called him “the greatest songwriter of our generation”), fierce lyricist, and a hyperdynamic performer with the ability to fingerpick finer than ‘60s Greenwich Village folkies and brutally strum like a proto punk shredder.

Saturday: The Baseball Project
Formed in 2007 by Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, The Minus 5, R.E.M.) and Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3, Gutterball), The Baseball Project began as a way for a couple of fans to pay musical tribute to our national pastime – and maybe score some free baseball tickets in the process. But The Baseball Project has since blossomed into a full-fledged, much-loved band in its own right, one which currently includes drummer Linda Pitmon and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck and Mike Mills on its official roster, and one whose following and creativity has steadily grown with each release and tour. Their most recent album is 3rd.
