Since their formation in the mid-’80s, Big Head Todd & the Monsters have continued to evolve and explore, moving beyond their Colorado club circuit roots to become one of the most adventurous, respected and durable bands in America.

Founded on the quiet and traffic-free Main St of C’ville, Va back in 1991, The Hogwallers were the ingrown toenail of the local music scene. Often arguing as much as playing, band members survived by quitting or firing each other.

They may be self-described as continuously recombinant, but the local band’s Americana tunes are consistently original.

5. David Wax Museum & Friends, The Southern Cafe and Music Hall, Jan 28th


103 South 1st St., Charlottesville, Virginia 22902

When future music historians look back at the strong currents circulating between the Americas in the 21st century, they will find Los Lobos, Calexico, and a charismatic, lanky Missourian singing tight harmony with a Southern belle rattling the jawbone of a donkey.

A Tex-Mex twist on traditional Americana pushes borders both musical and geographic.
