Info from Mulligan’s event page:
(21+) FREE SHOW
Music Starts @ 10pm
Black Cat Bone –
Black Cat Bone utilizes bottleneck guitar, harmonica, and drums to deliver their nihilistic version of the american music experience. Delivering songs about god, the devil, and the lost and lonely souls in between.
Restrepo BLUES –
Hailing from Bogotá, Colombia, this former rock performer cut his teeth in a variety of establishments and festivals during the most prolific era of the Colombian Blues scene. However, a lifetime of Rock & Roll frontmanship would lead to a more intimate relationship with the roots of American music and culture. From mundane to boisterous to outright risqué, Camilo’s soloist repertoire ranges from classic Robert Johnson takes, to the more obscure predecessors of the genre, while stopping to salute folk masters such as Dave van Ronk.
A Nomadic couple on the road since 03/16. Performing Indie Rock with Spanish Rhythms.
Barrel Bones –
Blues rock band based in Grand Rapids, MI.
Black Cat Bone returns to Mulligan’s Pub for the 616 Showcase, on the fortuitous date of 6/16. Devilyn Carver put together this show featuring a pretty wide range of talent.
From the event description:
Music Starts 6pm (21+)
As a founding member of The Almighty Foot Clan, WuZee has gained a reputation as one of the most entertaining performers in West Michigan. Though he draws massive influence from hip hop titans such as MF Doom and Wu-Tang Clan, WuZee’s upbeat style and choice samples never fail to draw a crowd. A nimble lyricist in his own right, WuZee continues to collaborate with many hip hop groups and performers from around the country.
Brother Adams –
The unique combination of acoustic and electric instrumentation brings the idea of folk-rock to a new, almost experimental level in Holland-bred Brother Adams. The raw, Modest Mouse-esque rock ‘n’ roll vocals add even more urgency to the trio’s sound, urging the audience to scream the lyrics right along. That being said, a Brother Adams live performance is one not to be missed: These guys love to pull the audience into the expressive passion they pour out on every stage they step onto.
Black Cat Bone –
Black Cat Bone is a roots music collective exploring the depths of neo-primitive blues and dirty folk. Inspired by the Lomax recordings of early 20th century sharecroppers and prisoners of the rural southern states.
Black Cat Bone utilizes bottleneck guitar, harmonica, and drums to deliver their nihilistic version of the american music experience. Delivering songs about god, the devil, and the lost and lonely souls in between, Black Cat Bone serves up the type of stuff you can play while drinkin’ on the front porch with your friends and family… simple, raw, honest.
Maggie May –
Ukulele player. Folk punker. Cat whisperer.
Black Cat Bone returns to the Tip Top Deluxe on June 2 to open for Bloodshot Bill. Chuck Whiting will also be performing (woo! woo!) at the coolest little music shack in town. We will be debuting our new drummer Eric, who has played in some kick ass bands like Buffalo Witch
the roots of Black Cat Bone started in Greenville MI of all places… making strange songs in the basement with Josh Lillie as a trio called House of the Morning Star. we played music we thought of as “dirty folk”. Raw. Simple. Honest.
Whatever happenend, happened for a reason. or no reason at all. whatever. gimme another pbr and retune that geetar son! we got another song to record.
nowadays Josh still plays live. we turned into a band that I am proud to share with some rather strange and wonderful individuals. we have good friends that believe in us. we got kind folks that tolerate my bullshit.
and now we are going back to Greenville for a homecoming show. sharing a stage with our old friend Josh. We’re bringing a new friend, Mike, who has been helping us out on drums. the band might be a little different now, but we’re still making music in that same mindset. Raw. Simple. Honest.
