Friday, November 21, 2014: Bumper Jacksons. The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. Hot and sweet, their early jazz and country repertoire paints America's story from New Orleans' brothels to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78's, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style. Deeply rooted in their love for early swing, blues, and old time country, Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals, re-imagining American roots music with both power and tenderness. They reach back to a time when jazz was the rowdy street music of America - a music of pleasure and celebration, of freedom, and a good old-fashioned dance party - before it really even had a name. They perform these traditional sounds of America, heart-wrenching and youthful, and always in the spirit of raw adventure. 7:30 p.m. in the Harms Gallery. $10 cash or check at the door.
