Monday: Kristin Diable
Kristin Diable has been exploring freedom and choice in her music ever since she picked up an open mic at a lounge in Baton Rouge and stunned the audience into silence. She rode that vibe, away to New York and then back to her native Louisiana like a storm front, one that shook New Orleans and cooled the air. And her newest album, Create Your Own Mythology, invokes her Louisiana and Americana roots, while firing a rock-and-roll shot across the bow of borrowed myths.
Sounds like: Haley Bonar, Chastity Brown, Robert Ellis
Tuesday: Sam Outlaw
Sam Outlaw is a southern Californian singer-songwriter steeped in the music and mythos of west coast country, absorbing the classic vibes of everything from '60s Bakersfield honky-tonk to '70s Laurel Canyon troubadour pop and refashioning them into a sound that's pleasurably past, present and future tense. His latest album is titled, Angeleno.

Saturday: Kick - Release Show
Yesterday, a couple of likely lads finished their exams and walked into the smiling streets of St. Paul. Skipping almost virginlike (and armed with guitars and drums no less) Jake, Kyle, and Ojay ran footlong into an abandoned 1977 Chrysler Cordoba. What happened next, no one knows. What we do know is that in 0.15 seconds they were seen fishtailing into the best part of the future's past, atop wailing riffs all but forgotten. Young, old, ancient, and winking, they're not stopping. It's rock and roll.
