Co-headlining show featuring TORRES & LADY LAMB THE BEEKEEPER!

Earlier this year, Nashville singer-songwriter MACKENZIE SCOTT, who records under the name TORRES, released a rough-hewn and heartfelt self-titled debut album that caught the attention of many a critic and fan. We at the Bottle have fallen hard for SCOTT's album, especially after she made her Chicago debut on our stage this past February. TORRES takes a full band out on the road with her to fully form her distinct sound and the result is stirring and emotional, cutting to the bone with its sparse instrumentation and beautifully piercing vocals. Exploring her morbid curiosities and combining them with rootsy folk and country songwriting, ALY SPALTRO performs as LADY LAMB THE BEEKEEPER, a new and refreshingly gritty voice that blows away all the watered down acoustic "vagabonds" littering the indie-folk landscape. Her debut LP, Ripley Pine, out via Ba Da Bing!, was written, arranged and recorded all by SPALTRO and the effort's stark, raw approach embodies her urgency and strength as a songwriter. Ultimately, amongst the anger, confusion, sadness and love of her songs, SPALTRO is a champion of individuality, and this lush, powerful record showcases an emerging talent that's primed to emerge on the national scene this year. Mellow-rock ensemble JUDSON CLAIBORNE, a band that uses a humble, spare approach that feels both natural and personal, drawing listeners in completely, returns to our stage for their first show since supporting SHEARWATER last fall. They’ve recorded a new record that’s due out this year and the first 7-inch, Neon Pagan Lovesong, sees the band expanding on their intricately-arranged, punchy indie-rock. With lines like "Drunk on American dreams / High on Canadian drugs" on the B-side track "Seeing Eye Ponies," you know your ears are in for a treat or three. We’re excited to hear more new tunes from these trusty old friends who’s high-energy live show is not to be missed.

    Singer-songwriter Mackenzie Scott of Nashville, TN released her first full-length earlier this year.  The self-titled album centers on such humanistic topics as guilt, isolation, and revelation and features raw, imperfect vocal takes to give the album a gritty feel.

    A listen to Ripely Pine proves she has a lot to say for herself and certainly doesn’t need anybody’s help to do it.

    Judson Claiborne is the reclamation of a name given to me by my father. It’s also the name I chose for this band. We formed in 2007 following the end of my previous project, Low Skies. We made our first record, Before Midnight Scholar (self-released 2008) to document rebirth into a greater awareness and consciousness with new collaborative partners and to celebrate the return of dormant creative energies. Time and Temperature (La Societe Expeditionnaire 2010) was written and recorded with a similar spirit but with emphasis on the transformation of the human psyche by way of life’s companions and mysterious pathways. We are currently at work on a new album that we hope to release in the spring of 2013. Performing is of course essential communication for us to convey our ideas, emotions, and to transmit the full expression of this music. Since founding of this band, we’ve had the honor of sharing a stage with Andrew Bird, Cass McCombs, Shannon Wright, The Cave Singers, Grant Lee Phillips, Haley Bonar, Freakwater, and Jana Hunter.
