Wild Child

Since the dawn of time man has huddled together for warmth in the winter, telling stories, playing music, eating food, and drinking spirits. So why suffer away this cold, rainy weather at home? We may have central heating systems now, but why not convene where someone else has to pay the gas bill? Nothing gets your blood pumping like live music and dancing, after all.

Fast Asleep at The Crepe Place

When a band lists their sole three loves as beer, bikes, and thrash, you pretty much know you’re in for a loud one. But these guys bring a lot more than just extra noise to the table. Santa Cruz-based Fast Asleep have been performing at eleven since 2010, quietly (sort of) working their way to the top of the local hardcore scene through their high energy live show and skillfully not allowing their lyrics and melodies to get lost in the extra speaker power. Trust us, you’ll feel this one.

Show at 9pm

Tickets $8 at the door

Wild Child at The Catalyst Atrium

Somewhere between Florence and The Machine and Wilco is Wild Child. A little bit rock, a little bit funk, a little bit folk, and a lot of soul makes up their heartfelt and classic style. Vocalists Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins meld their voices over clever lyrics and are backe by an eclectic seven-piece band, utilizing everything from horns and washboards to violins and bass drums. Although they haven’t enjoyed mainstream success or huge radio plays, the band has sold out venues all across north America and Europe and recently released their first full-length album “Fools” in 2015.

Show at 9pm

Tickets $14 adv/$17 at the door

Bone Thugs N Harmony at The Catalyst Main Stage

Music is always a subject that inspires passionate arguments about impact, style, taste, and meaning, and hip-hop may be the most contentious genre. However, regardless of how you feel about Bone Thugs N Harmony, it would be difficult to refute that they are one of the most decorated and storied hip-hop group still alive and touring. They’ve sold 15 million records, recorded with The Notorious B.I.G, 2Pac, N.W.A, Phil Collins, and won a Grammy. Most importantly, they redirected hip-hop’s sonic direction and opened the industry’s doors to a whole new generation of musical style. Before you go, check out our interview with them from last time they came to town.

Show at 9pm

Tickets $25—$60
