About this Event

(General Admission)

Uncle Green

Uncle Green was formed in Basking Ridge, New Jersey in 1980 by four childhood friends. They relocated to Atlanta in 1984, and over the next decade, singer-guitarists Matt Brown and Jeff Jensen, bassist Bill Decker, and drummer Peter McDade built a reputation on the burgeoning college-radio circuit for tight, memorable melodies and offbeat songcraft. After a few releases on dB Recs they were ready for the inevitably disappointing tour of the major labels, first with Atlantic Records (Book of Bad Thoughts), and then Sony Music (Vulure, bringing a new name to the new label: 3 Lb. Thrill).

When it came time for a second Sony record, the band rented a house in Atlanta, where they wrote and recorded Rycopa. Upon wrapping its 32 tracks in 1997, they were confident they had made their best record. Sony “didn’t hear a single” and passed on the album. After a false start with yet another major label, they decided not to release the album and amicably went their separate ways.

The master tapes for Rycopa disappeared into the Sony vaults, but in 2011 they were rescued at long last released. The celebrated with a CD Release show in 2012, and in 2016 they marked the 25 th Anniversary of What An Experiment His Head Was by performing the album in its entirety. In the November of 2019 they will once again attempt to remember enough songs to play, this time Wild West Picture Show.

WILD WEST Picture Show

WILD WEST Picture Show is the personification of FootStompinCountryFunk. Throughout the 1990’s, they played across the Southeast in every juke joint and dive bar from Squeaky’s Tip Top to Lakewood Amphitheater. Their live show is a whirling dervish of Rock, Funk and Country that has been known to cause fainting spells and population increases in local jurisdictions. Prepare yourself to find Salvation, swing from the rafters, and Get Wet !!
