Joey Henry's Dirty Sunshine Club & Lindsay Laurel Mower

Monday - November, 25 @ 7:00pm

That's right!  Blue is open for a rare Monday performance of the FOR THE SAKE OF THE SONG showcase featuring touring musician: Joey Henry's Dirty Sunshine Club and local songstress, Lindsay Laurel Mower!
Inspired by the late, great Townes Van Zandt, songwriters come together for this monthly showcase to enjoy each other's music. The rest of us are just there to listen, have all the feels, and applaud when appropriate. Artists will bring a mix of Americana music featuring bluegrass, folk, classic country, and blues sometimes tinged with the punk and metal backgrounds of some of the performers. Loosely grouped under what's come to be known as Americana music, the common thread to these performances is original songwriting and storytelling. There will normally be two full sets by a mix of local and touring acts, as well as individual performances before, between and maybe after the two headlining acts. These will often be new, recently written songs by engaging songwriters putting their heart into the moment.
Joey Henry is a storyteller. For the past six years he has been traveling the country sharing stories as the banjo player and one of three singer-songwriters for the Kansas-based trio, The Calamity Cubes, along with bandmates Brook Blanche and Kody Oh. When not touring with The Cubes, he focuses on his solo project, Joey Henry's Dirty Sunshine Club and occasionally gets back to his indie roots by providing words and vocals for the Lawrence based Old Canes (Saddle Creek records) and “noise banjo” for the Kansas City based High Diving Ponies.
Lindsay Mower is a songstress from Maine. She writes her own music, featuring a fusion of jazzy, folksy and bluesy pop tunes. She is currently the principle songwriter, vocalist and bassy rhythm guitarist for the band Natural High Jumble. She loves to have fun and she has really nice teeth.
