The Rentiers, a project lead by Plow United’s Joel Tannenbaum, will take over Ortlieb’s for the night. The light-hearted folk inspired act can be described as more of a rotating cast of friends, the only consistent members being Tannenbaum himself and percussionist Mikey Erg of The Ergs!. The group will be joined by Brian McGee, who will be accompanied by a full band and North Carolina folk act JKutchma. Watch them perform “Stories of Adam” at Long in The Tooth, and tickets can be purchased here.

WXPN and The Mann Center welcomes singer/songwriter Amos Lee. He strings together the finest aspects of folk, soul, and rock which comes together neatly in his 2011 effort Mission Bell, which made it to #1 on Billboard’s US rock charts. His follow up Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, features an array of highly respected and talented musicians, and he just released his first concert album, Live At Red Rocks. Below, watch a video of “Windows Are Rolled Down” performed with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and buy tickets here.

Live at Lunch veterans Dirty Dollhouse may have only released their debut EP “25 Shades” last winter, but they play a captivating mixture of pop with classic folk that becomes a quick favorite. They will be playing Bourbon and Branch joined by Arizona Lights and 50s inspired Ortolan. You can listen to the title track from their record and get tickets here.
