Copious Jones at Red Light CaféCopious Jones is a diverse 6-piece band that defies genre and has quickly become recognized as one of the most promising talents coming out of Atlanta today. Consisting of 3 friends from music school who joined creative forces with 3 respected veterans from the local jazz / Latin scene, the band draws from a wide variety of styles (including, but not limited to – progressive-rock, funk, jazz, Latin, classical, African, blues, folk, jam, electronic) to create an ever-evolving, unique musical experience based around inspiring singer / songwriter, Mikhail Petersen.

The Jugtime Ragband at Red Light CaféPurists Beware! The Jugtime Ragband is not jug band, ragtime, or dixieland. It is an energetic amalgamation of all three with an early New Orleans sound. Their main influences include Louis Armstrong (Pops), the Boswell Sisters and Bix Beiderbecke. They play amazing songs composed by some of the best songwriters from the early and mid twentieth century. Their only rules: history and melody.

Mary Lynn Buchanan at Red Light CaféMary Lynn Buchanan is a 20-something year old Georgia Tech student and native Atlantan who copes with the stresses of existing by penning and performing songs about the pitfalls of life and the expectations of society. She loves exploring Atlanta's art and music culture, and considers her biggest musical influences to be Radiohead, Pinback, Sheryl Crow and The Neighbourhood.

The Last Gonzo at Red Light CaféWith an odd mix of dark outlaw tales and a twisted wit The Last Gonzo composes western cowboy music with Mark Twain-esque lyricism. Wildly intelligent and strangely humorous the music is filled with whimsy and darkness. From running from the sheriff for sleeping with his wife to searching for a shaman (medicine man) in the hills of Mexico, there's always a unique story with an odd twist. Possibly one of the darkest and most twisted country albums, Pirates, Outlaws, Sheriffs, and Thieves — the new release from The Last Gonzo — is Outlaw Americana at its best.

Where the Beatniks and Hippies look to Kerouac and Ginsberg, The Last Gonzo takes to the road in a much more twisted fashion with the likes of Hunter S. Thompson, Chuck Palahnuik and Mark Leyner. With an unapologetic sense of juxtaposition a love song can quickly become a murder ballad or a psychotic attempt at winning a girls heart while on your death bed. The music and melodies are reminiscent of David Allen Coe’s barroom ballads, Robert Earl Keen’s Main street story lines, and Willie Nelson’s cowboy tales with some of Jerry Jeff Walker's laid back humor and  the iconic Ray Wylie Hubbard grit. Themes of pistols, trains, bandits and sheriffs run through the landscape of the music but in any song it is obvious that there is definitely a master storyteller behind it.
