    Adam Ezra

    Adam Ezra and his band have never been afraid to rewrite the rules of business for their independent, folk-inspired, rock band. For years now at shows they have offered their CD's to fans for whatever they'd like to pay, (fans are also encouraged to take albums for free if they don't have a lot of money to spend). Throughout the band's history they have made playing benefits and fundraisers a priority, despite a grueling 200 show per year tour schedule.

    Bob Marley | 9PM Show

    One Longfellow Square is proud to welcome Maine's own King of Comedy, Bob Marley! He's well acquainted with Maine's cold winters, and just about all things that are quintessential Maine, and he's been taking simple woodsy humor and the word 'wicked' across the nation and around the world for nearly two decades. In addition to regularly selling out shows in Maine, Bob Marley has hit up the late night circle, from Jay Leno to Conan O'Brien, been on VH1 and Comedy Central, is featured frequently on the radio, and even once held the Guinness World record for the longest continuous stand up routine, clocking in at 40 hours. If that's not some wicked good comedy, then what is?

    Hiss Golden Messenger (Solo)

    State Theatre Presents Hiss Golden Messenger Lateness of Dancers is the fifth full-length from Hiss Golden Messenger. It's an open, confident, immediate album, and it feels, at times, like a direct response to the darkness of M.C. Taylor's last record, 2013's Haw, or to the searching of 2010's Bad Debt, the stunning acoustic LP he made at his kitchen table shortly after the birth of his son. Lateness of Dancers was recorded in a tin-roofed barn outside of Hillsborough, North Carolina, last fall and includes many of Taylor's longtime collaborators, like Phil and Brad Cook of Megafaun, the guitarist William Tyler, and his erstwhile recording partner Scott Hirsch. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig of Mountain Man contributes backing vocals; her tender, wooly voice both complements and challenges Taylor's.

    Johnny A.

    Lots of folks throw around the phrase “let the music do the talking,” but only a few have the fortitude to really do it – to just go out there and play, shunning flash, shrugging off image and reeling in the listener on the strength of the songs alone. Johnny A. is that kind of performer. For the better part of three decades, the Massachusetts-based guitarist and bandleader has proven himself capable of generating heat at venues from working-class bars to international amphitheaters – and every sort of venue in between.

    WCLZ Presents: Dustbowl Revival w/ Joe Fletcher


    The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, Dustbowl bravely brings together many styles of traditional American music. Some call it string band-brass band mash up. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It’s infectious, joyous music – a youthful take on time-worn American traditions.

    Little Tybee


    One might think from their humble beginnings in the backwaters and basements of coastal Georgia to their headlining shows at some of Atlanta’s most well known independent venues that the members of Little Tybee were the harbingers of some secret formula for artistic success. In reality, they are simply a group of friends who couldn’t stop making music together if they tried.
