Tedious & Brief Tuesday, June 7 at 6 p.m.
Tedious & Brief is a Chicago-based alternative pop artist whose airy synth and smooth vocals create nostalgic anthems. Jamie Jacobsen, 23, is as gritty and stubborn as her roots would suggest, and her thoughtful blend of commercial-ready, groove-oriented, indie-alt pop reflects an existential mind who’s not used to thinking inside boxes. But her tendency to keep a tongue-in-cheek songwriting approach keeps her every bit relatable.
iliana Rose Cuban Jazz Band Wednesday, June 15 at 6 p.m.
Iliana Rose is a complete entertainer: an accomplished piano player, percussionist, clarinetist and vocalist. She is also spontaneously funny and easily connects to her audience. Born in Miami and raised by Cuban parents and grandparents she is steeped in Cuban rhythms and culture. As a singer her voice is pure, warm, sensual and beautiful. Her band includes some of the finest musicians on the East Coast.
Clemson University Faculty Jazz Quartet Tuesday, June 28 at 6 p.m.
The Faculty Jazz combo, established in 2012, performs classic and original tunes at venues across the upstate, and has even performed in Death Valley with Tiger Band.
Psycodelics Tuesday, July 5 at 6 p.m.
Awarded City Paper’s 2021 Soul/R&B Act of the Year, Psycodelics’ flavor of Black American music has blended foundations of blues, jazz and disco with fresh funk rock. With a stage presence as multifaceted and emotive as its lineup, the already-potent sound retains even greater magic to make you get up and dance.
The Grateful Brothers Wednesday, July 13 at 6 p.m.
Formed in early 2016 by Zach Thigpen and Brad Crowe, The Grateful Brothers combine the catalogs of The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead. Often intertwining songs through segues and transitions, they carry out the improvisational spirit of the two groups in their own space. The seven musicians making up the band have known each other and played in various outfits with one another for upwards of twenty years. The camaraderie between them is obvious and the familiarity leads to the ease of musical exploration.
