MUSIC BOX: Show Us the Shows

By on September 27, 2017

Those Idaho boys from Jonathan Warren and The Billy Goats

Looking for something to tickle your fancy this week in Jackson? Well, have we got the shows for you.

KHOL Vinyl Night
So, KHOL’s Vinyl Night at The Rose is unlike your typical vinyl night, which is precisely why it’s on this list.
Most vinyl nights go a little something like this: DJ spins his choice of vinyls, and sometimes they’re great. Other times, not so much.

In this case, though, you have the opportunity to make sure every vinyl that graces the record player is a very good one, as it’s customary to bring your own vinyl—or BYOV, as we like to call it—to The Rose on these nights.

What better way to spend a Wednesday night? Perhaps with some sweet cocktail deals?

Yep—what we forgot to mention above is that in conjunction with those tunes, The Rose also hands out some sweet, sweet $8 vintage cocktails during KHOL’s Vinyl Night, making a night of old waxy tunes that much better.

Records, cocktails and more records. Do you really need any more reasons to go?

KHOL’s Vinyl Night is Wednesday, September 27 at The Rose in Jackson. The vinyl spinnin’ is free and starts at 8:00 p.m.

Future Islands

Known for wicked performances and some, well, pretty sweet dad dance moves, synthpop titans Future Islands arguably “made it” pretty darn big after an awkward and unforgettable performance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2014 went viral.

But even if you haven’t had the opportunity or luck to stumble across the YouTube video of Future Islands’ performance on Letterman, you might want to make an effort to head out to Pink Garter on Thursday night to catch front man Samuel T. Herring in living color.

However objectively good or bad Herring’s dance moves are, they have helped the band carve a niche into the hearts of many Letterman watchers and music junkies alike, and if you catch Thursday night’s show, you’re in for a real treat.

This is the first time Herring and his Future Islands cohorts—the brilliant guitar and bassist William Cashion and sweet, sweet keyboardist Gerrit Welmers—will be taking the Teton stage, and it’s something you won’t want to miss.

Jackson is by far the smallest town on the Baltimore trio’s current tour, which celebrates the release of their newest album “The Far Field,” stopping in cities like Los Angeles and Dallas, just to name a few.

Future Islands will be at Pink Garter, 50 W. Broadway Ave., Jackson on Thursday, September 28. Tickets start at $20. Show starts at 9 p.m.

Chas Collins

If you’ve somehow managed to miss Chas Collins at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, it’s time to remedy that.

We’d be pretty darn surprised, though, if you have managed to miss him, since this New Orleans-hailing cowboy stands a whopping 6’6, making him a huge presence both onstage and off.

What we’re here to talk about today though, is Collins’ presence onstage, which is a pretty great presence indeed.
Collins is known for high-energy shows—yes, such a thing exists in country music—and has been raved about from one stage to the next.

Cowboy Collins and his band have earned over the years a pretty impressive resume as openers for some of the biggest national acts in country music: think Luke Bryan, Collin Raye, Bucky Covington, David Ball and Daryl Singletary, among others.
It’s only a matter of time, though, before Chas and Co. break out on their own as headliners, so catch them at Million Dollar Cowboy while you can. It may be a long time—and much crummier seats—before you can do it again.

Chas Collins plays Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, 25 N. Cache St., Jackson on Friday, September 29. The show is free.

Jonathan Warren & The Billy Goats

With a name like “Jonathan Warren & The Billy Goats,” things could either go really, really well or really, really bad. Luckily for you, in this case, it’s the former.

Self-described as a hybrid of “progressive psychobilly folk grass,” these Boise-bred boys know how to make some noise onstage. They’re rowdy, cause a racous and at times can be quite endearing, but no matter what side they’re showing, you can guarantee one thing: It’s a side you should see.

The three-man band really knows how to put on a show, and you can be sure that if you head up to the Silver Dollar Showroom on Saturday night, you’ll be treated to the best mix of harmonica, violin, and rowdiness you’ve seen in a long, long time.

Jonathan Warren & The Billy Goats play at the Silver Dollar Showroom, 50 N. Glenwood St., Jackson on Saturday, September 30. The show is free and starts at 7:30 p.m.

Stagecoach Band

Don’t side-eye us at the mention of Wilson; it’s by no means too far of a trek to catch the world-famous Stagecoach Band, and you don’t even have to cross the pass to do it.

If you’re unfamiliar with Stagecoach Band, it’s time to familiarize yourselves, stat.

These folks have been a staple at Stagecoach for decades, busting out a blend of rowdy country music every Sunday night—better known as Sunday Church to those in the know— that’s just perfect for dustin’ off your dancin’ shoes — err, boots.

The five-member band has graced the stage more than 2,500 nights during the past 44 years, which means they have spent plenty of time perfecting the art of luring you onto the dancefloor, two-left-feet or otherwise.

Stagecoach Band takes the stage at Stagecoach, 5800 West Highway 22, Wilson on Sunday, October 1. The show is free and starts at 6 p.m.
