08.25: Coyotes + Gold And The Rush + Sports & Leisure – Carrollton Station
After an impressive string of performances earlier this summer and a trip to the studio to put down their first offerings of recorded material, what is obvious to many at this point is how Sports & Leisure has quickly managed to match their complex – often jarring – milieu of folk, indie pop and psychedelic miscellanea with an organic tightness and a fantastic level of onstage energy.

01.14: Vox and The Hound + Sun Hotel – Carrollton Station
When Leo DeJesus decides to flesh out his arsenal with a crack team of similarly long resumed musicians – including musical renaissance man/Community Records founder/all around nice guy Daniel Rey – you can pretty much bet on the fact that the end result is going to be better than good.
