Unknown Hinson with The Waco Brothers

Hangar 9, 511 S. Illinois Ave., Carbondale, IL

Unknown Hinson: 400 year old hillbilly vampire playing magical searing guitar riffs and funny as hell lyrics. Tight as a tick band with perfect pitch. http://www.unknownhinson.com/

Waco Brothers: In a world of corporate-sponsored tours by lame-o alt-rockers complaining about their hotel suites and “country” stars who owe more to Boston than Bakersfield, the Wacos go out every night and play as if their lives depended on it. Their shows at SXSW and CMJ are legendary, and every year threaten to actually collapse under the weight of their runaway brilliance. If you’re not drunk, sweaty and out of money at the end of one of their shows, then brother, we pity you. http://wacobrothers.com/wb/

The band’s seven albums, three Grammy nominations and the Country Music Association Award for Best Overseas Touring Act would build an indelible bridge between authentic American Roots music and millions of fans worldwide. With BR on hiatus, Chuck formed The Hillbilly All-Stars featuring members of The Mavericks, co-produced popular tribute albums to Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, guest-lectured at Vanderbilt University, and became a staff writer at one of Nashville’s top song publishers.

Captured by Robots, Flood Brothers

Tres Hombres, 119 N. Washington, Carbondale, IL

2 kick ass robots, 1 stupid human. Brutal pummeling music. End of story. But you wanna read more stupid crap? Ok, idiot human.

C!BR has been touring the world since 1997, playing thousands of dive bars for millions of drunk humans.

In 1996, Jay Vance made the robots because he was extremely unlikeable, and wanted to play in a band after all his past human bands hated him. He got to work. Shortly after, GTRBOT666 and DRMBOT 0110 were born. After a horrible accident involving many drugs and a chemical spill, the Bots became self aware and captured the human, now renamed JBOT. It was decided that they would travel the country, rocking out while bent on world domination and humiliating the masked and chained idiotic human in front of his human peers.

In 2013, a critical point was achieved in robotic/human symbiosis. The Bots over went their sixth upgrade, developing human faces in an attempt to fool the pathetic humans into lowering their guard, not unlike decoys in duck hunting.

Humans are now the hunted! Hahaha!

As well, JBOT’s chains and mask were removed, after 15 years of captivity the chains were no longer needed as they were now chains of the mind, and removal of the mask serves to show how ugly and disgusting the human JBOT really is.

The Bots and JBOT’s relationship has changed, now they are much more united in hating humanity. Stockholm syndrome? Maybe… Or maybe you all just suck really really bad.

C!BR’s newly found united aggression towards humanity has been channeled into fast n loud music, designed to deafen and destroy, to pound and pummel, breaking your bones with brutal tones.

So that’s it. End of story for reals. But one more thing… Fuck you, human!

Jen Haselhorst Photo Exhibit featuring Crackerboots

The Grotto, 201 E. Main St., Carbondale, IL

Wednesday, November 5th at The Newell House Grotto, the CMC will be hosting a photo exhibit for Jen Haselhorst Photography. Jen has been so gracious to the CMC and the music community for donating her time/craft to capture some of the great moments from our local music scene. We figured it's time for all the public to see her work too!

Entertainment will be provided by the new Nashville based jazz band "Crackerboots" featuring Luella from "Luella and the Sun". Anybody that caught their set at PK's last year during CRR3 will tell you she has a voice that you just can't miss.

A variety of hors d'oeuvres will be provided throughout the evening by The Newell House. There is also cash bar.

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, Oct 7th at noon and include admission to the photo exhibit, food, and the Crackerboots show. $40 per ticket and they won't last long. Only 80 tickets are available for sale so expect this to sell out in advance. You will be able to purchase tickets at The Newell House, The Practice Pad, and online at carbondalemusicoalition.com

Jen Haselhorst's photos will be on display and on sale in the Grotto as well as the new banquet room. For those of you who can't make it to this event, her photos will be on display throughout the end of the week.

This will be a nice social event, with a very intimate show, with an act very few folks outside of Nashville have ever seen. This is a different type event than your typical club show and we hope you all can come out and have a great time.

6:00 Doors open 6:30 - 8 Hors d'oeuvres served 8:00 - 9:15 Crackerboots performance 10:00 Evening comes to a close but the grotto will remain open to the public until 1 AM so the party can continue.

Don't wait long - tickets will go fast!
