Thursday November 3 $12 adv / $15 doors 8PM Americana/Country

Critically acclaimed folk-pop band Lisa Moscatiello & The Space Dots and Americana charting country artists Ruthie and the Wranglers on a double bill. This standout lineup promises great results as worlds coll…aborate!

Lisa Moscatiello is officially releasing her highly anticipated third independent CD, entitled Trouble from the Start. Defying standard categorization, Lisa Moscatiello and her band, the Space Dots, blend the best of torch song vocals with intricate and deeply layered musicianship. With Erik Wenberg (emmet swimming) on guitar, Robbie Magruder (Mary Chapin Carpenter Band) on drums, Harry Appelman on keyboards and Jon Nazdin on upright bass.

‘Trouble From the Start is yet another reminder of her impressive talent and range. Her voice is its own reward, lithe and expressive, and her eclectic tastes keep things interesting as she moves from the sunny pop charmer “Feel the Love” to the achingly homesick ballad “Exile” to the sultry jazz gem “You’re Crying.”‘ – Washington Post

With four critically acclaimed albums under their belts and another in the works, Ruthie and the Wranglers have remained in the spotlight for more than 12 years, and their eclectic approach to country music has garnered them more than 25 Washington area music awards (WAMMIES), two Billboard World Songwriting Contest honors and Top 20 spots on the Americana radio charts. p>The band will ignite the room with their high-energy hillbilly harmonies. Musicians include: Ruthie Logsdon (vocals and acoustic guitar), Phil Mathieu (B-bender Telecaster, nylon string guitar and mandolin) Robbie Magruder (drums) and Greg Hardin (vocalist/bassist and author of 2005 WAMA Song of the Year!)
