Doors at 7. Music at 8. All Ages.

Tickets in advance: $20 + fees. At the door: $25.

Tickets available at Cactus Records and online by following the link!

A nod to the musicians’ early days playing music, when they’d perform for friends and family in basements, living rooms, and around campfires, “Campfire Caravan” celebrates the American tradition of gathering communities around music. In an untraditional format, all three bands rotate in the lineup with no single ensemble acting as the tour headliner. A completely different show will be presented in each city with spontaneous collaborations amongst the groups taking place between sets.

With each band residing in different parts of America – The Brothers Comatose from the West Coast, Mipso from the East Coast, and The Lil Smokies from the Rocky Mountains – they bring their own unique interpretations of, and inspired contributions to, the evolution of traditional American music to a shared stage for a very special evening of music.

Please join us for a very special night of music to honor Patrick Curtis, a very much loved bartender at The Haufbrau and a very special Yoga student of his friend Randa. Before Patrick recently passed, Patrick had gotten his visa for India, time off from work, and was looking forward to immersion with my Randa's Yoga teacher, Lino Miele. On Saturday September 30 we ask for donations in Patrick’s name, that we may send a worthy student to India to be immersed with Lino, in Patrick’s memory. We couldn't think of a more appropriate way to honor Patrick and combine two of his loves than with the music of The Grateful Dead provided by Colorado's Coral Creek!

The Courtneys drift back to the sound of the early '90s, drawing from strong influences including Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, and The Clean. Courtney Loove's dreamy guitar riffs add a timeless powerpop element to the punk backbone formed by Sydney Koke's driving basslines, while drummer/lead singer Jen Twynn Payne delivers heartfelt lyrics with a powerful vocal style. These components come together through a passionate collaborative songwriting process to deliver a special blend of fuzzy "artisanal grunge". 

The first Courtneys album (self titled) came out in 2013 on small independent label, Hockey Dad Records, based in the band's hometown of Vancouver, BC, Canada. They have since worked with a number of independent labels including Conquest of Noise in Australia and Waterslide Records in Japan, as well as Burger Records and Gnar tapes in the USA. They have released a number of singles and music videos, and toured throughout Canada and the USA, including spots supporting Tegan and Sara and Mac Demarco.

In 2015 The Courtneys made their way to Australia and New Zealand, where they were hosted by Flying Nun Records. Influenced by the legendary label from early on, the group are honored to now be able to call it their home.

The band’s chameleonic playlist is highlighted by dual vocals, four part harmonies, in-the-pocket drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, and take-’em-to-church organ that is downright appetizing. Jelly Bread has emerged with a high-energy calling card that melds elements of desert twang and the urban tones of funk & rock, balanced by exceptional songwriting and storytelling.
