Hadden Sayers CD Release, Brothers Comatose, Guided By Vices

Hadden Sayers’ CD release party at Lincoln’s Zoo Bar is Wednesday, Aug. 10, 6-9 p.m.. His latest disc, Hard Dollar, is his best yet. Sayers’ Texas-rooted blues-rock puts his soulful vocals and serious guitar skills front and center in the service of mighty fine original songs. Be there.

Roadhouse Gets Comatose
Sunday Roadhouse presents The Brothers Comatose on Sunday, Aug. 7, 5 p.m. at The Waiting Room. The San Francisco group describes themselves as “a 5 piece old-timey, rowdy string band.” They have been gaining attention and momentum at notable events like The Strawberry Music Festival and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Check thebrotherscomatose.com for info and free music downloads.

Coming up on Aug. 24 are David Olney & Sergio Webb.
And mark your calendars now for Hoodoo hero Jon Dee Graham on Sunday, Sept. 25, in a special Roadhouse at the Side Door Lounge. Seating is limited. See sundayroadhouse.com.

Lager Van Repair Fund
I wrote last week about the Kris Lager Band’s van fire enroute back to Omaha from a South Dakota show. Friends of KLB have set up a fund to help with vehicle repairs. Look up the Kris Lager Band Transportation Fund page on Facebook for details.
