ivy room presents SUNDAY JUNE 2ND Doors 3:30pm / Show 4:00pm $15 Admission IVY ROOM 860 San Pablo Ave, Albany • 21+ (rsvp on facebook) LAURA BENITEZ AND THE HEARTACHE Laura Benitez and the Heartache use the three chord tools of country music to tell the simple, unvarnished truth about love, too much whiskey, and the call of the road. Their new album, "California Centuries," finds the band delving deep into themes of collective denial ("Bad Things"), gaslighting ("Invisible" and "Gaslight") and romantic lessons learned ("I'm the One" and "Are You Using Your Heart"). Their twangy honesty shines through in straightforward arrangements, crystalline harmonies, and spare instrumentation. Beware their catchy hooks and sweet melodies - these stray puppy tunes will follow you home and become your most steadfast companions. STACY ANTONEL Nashville artist Stacy Antonel makes clever, country-leaning Americana that feels both vintage and hyper-modern. Her “country jazz” vocals conjure the great singers of the 20s-30s, with the emotive power of country icon Patsy Cline. Rooted in classic country and laced with elements of jazz, pop, and R&B, Antonel’s narrative songs often feature unconventional themes. Antonel grew up near San Diego studying classical piano and cites an eclectic range of early musical inspiration: Tori Amos’s peculiar phrasing, Otis Redding’s rich melodic hooks. After winning televised singing contest “3 Minutes to Stardom”, Antonel quit her job to focus full-time on music. She began performing classic country covers as Ginger Cowgirl, and in 2017 moved to Nashville to record her self-titled debut EP, which was released in 2019. The album was praised by critics and led to tours in California, the Southeast, the UK, and Germany. DOGWOOD STRING BAND Dogweed String Band (Alameda/Oakland, Ca) revives your favorite old-time grooves with soulful harmonies, red-hot musicianship and a penchant for Western Swing. Blending classics from old blues to 70's country with heart melting originals, the band features Joan Wilson Rueter on fiddle, guitar and vocals, Dawn Ellerbeck on upright bass, Rosie Steffy on harmonies and suitcase drums, and the electric sounds of Jamie Duncan and Jared Altura on twin lead guitars.
