Gary Clark Jr. - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Gary Clark Jr.
Gary Clark Jr. will release his long-anticipated full-length debut album for Warner Bros. Records on October 23rd. The album, for which the title and track-listing will be announced soon, was produced by Gary Clark Jr. and Mike Elizondo, who is known for his work with Mastodon, Fiona Apple, Dr. Dre, and many others.

Gary has been slipping new songs into his sets while performing at all of this year's major American music festivals, including Bonnaroo, the alt-leaning mainstays Coachella and Montreal's Osheaga Festival, the indie rock-driven Sasquatch!, Lollapalooza Festivals and the eclectic NOLA Jazz & Heritage Festival. This coming weekend of Sep 1st 7 2nd, Clark will Clark will be the only artist to play both nights of Jay Z's Made In America Festival at Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. Other performers include Jay Z, Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Drake and more. After that, Clark winds up at the final major US festival of the season at the Austin City Limits Festival, along with Warner Bros. Records label-mates Neil Young & Crazy Horse and LP, the weekend of October 12-14th.

To coincide with the release of his album Gary will also make several television appearances in October. Those details will be announced soon.

With an unpredictable and musically diverse live set that varies based on Clark's mood and the vibe he gets from the audience on any given night, the Austin native has received tremendous critical praise, with The New York Times opining that he "may be the next Hendrix." Rolling Stone observed, "Owing as much to Kurt Cobain and the Ramones as Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker, indebted to hip-hop and psychedelia, his shape-shifting calling card EP is grounded in tradition while standing on the brink of change." "Gary Clark Jr. cuts through a stunning blend of rock and soul. Clark can sing some sweet R&B, but at heart, he's a blistering blues-rock guitarist who's about to blow up big," said NPR.

While fans eagerly await Clark's debut full-length, they can snap up Clark's acclaimed THE BRIGHT LIGHTS EP, as well as an exclusive 12" vinyl single, Gary Clark Jr. Presents HWUL Cuts Vol. I that contains two previously unreleased live tracks, "If You Love Me Like You Say" and "Bright Lights.”
Timothy Bloom - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Timothy Bloom
2x Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Timothy Bloom counts Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Withers, and Jeff Buckley among his inspirations. The son of pastors, he grew up with music surrounding him. He debuted not as a solo artist, but as a collaborative songwriter, and he got his foot in the door in a major way; the North Carolina native co-wrote a pair
of songs with Smokey Robinson, "My World" and "Fallin'," both of which were included on Robinson's 2005-released My World: The Definitive Collection. In 2009, he played a major role in Quite Like Me, an independently released album by vocalist Dionyza, and he provided background vocals on Usher's Raymond V. Raymond, issued the following year. He finally broke through as a solo artist in 2011 with The Budding Rose, an EP led by the stunning ballad "'Til the End of Time," a duet with Veronika Bozeman promoted with an equally striking video. The song impacted Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop chart just before the release of Chris Brown's F.A.M.E., an album highlighted by Bloom's "All Back." Bloom's debut album was scheduled for release later in the year through Polow da Don's Zone 4 and Timbaland's Mosley Music via Interscope.
