Beetle Box & D.H. Scott

Saturday, August 10
7:00PM
Free

Beetle Box and D.H. Scott will be performing at Armadillo Music.

Beetle Box is an experimental composer, keyboardist, and solo artist from Little Rock, Arkansas who creates original, piano-centered electronic music for live performance.

beetleboxmusic.com

DH Scott is a songwriter born in Bakersfield, CA and now resides in New Mexico. Scott spent his youth busking with his banjo and saw, hitchhiking and getting swept away in beautiful music, places, and people. It is easy to feel all that life and kindness, in his music and in his presence. Well traveled, a music lover with a giant heart, Scott writes simple folk songs on his guitar, his voice and words are sad, yet strong. Ballads of darker times on top of an often cheerful silver stringed guitar which he flawlessly picks, every note necessary and deliberate, his songs roll like a stream. These are songs that are going to keep you company, just like the friend DH Scott is to many folks along his forever tour, or perhaps they'll remind you the simple joy of forever rambling alone

The Turbos

Monday, August 12
6:00PM
Free

The Turbos are a high energy, alt-rock, quartet based in Columbus. The name is derived from the influence that the Columbus Rock scene had on the band. Whether you're freakin' or fightin', they got that rock for your roll! The Turbos come together to rock faces and foundations with a fierce thirst for the bright lights.
