Guitar and harp at three20south
Moreland & Arbuckle will play a free show at three20south tonight. Formed in 2001, guitarist Aaron Moreland and harpist-singer Dustin Arbuckle first began playing together in Wichita, Kan. After performing in various projects, the two decided to play as a duo and saw the beginning of their success after placing in the finals at the 2005 International Blues Competition in Memphis. Now several albums into their career, Moreland & Arbuckle, as well as their drummer Kendall Newby, are touring in support of their latest release, “7 Cities,” a blues/roots/rock album that tells the story of a Spanish explorer and his search for the seven cities of gold in the Kansas plains. Doors open at 9 p.m. for the 21 and older show. Visit www.three20south.com for more information.
Free music to kick off World Peace Day
Rogue Sound will play a free show at Alma’s Only Bar today. Rogue Sound in its purest form is a reggae-fusion power trio, with roots in hip-hop, rock and jazz. The group’s bilingual lyrics and easy-going vibe seamlessly cross cultures and genres while mixing musicianship with simplicity in a positive party atmosphere. The band is often joined by guest MCs, DJs, keyboards and brass, all of which provide infinite musical possibilities, from holding down a funk or reggae groove to exploring the fullest potential of an out-of-this-world atonal space jam. The music starts at 9:30 p.m. Visit www.almasonlybar.com for more information.
Branded Bandits in Breckenridge
Three20south in Breckenridge will host the Branded Bandits for a free show on Saturday. Branded Bandits formed in September 2011. After recording their first EP, “Gypsy Tea,” in 2012, the Bandits’ music has progressed into a full-fledged signature sound. They plan on heading into the studio in 2013 to lay down brand new tracks. The Bandits bring back that classic rock sound that is now lost, mixed with contemporary rock and blues, creating an undeniably heavy sound compared with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Sabbath and Mountain. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the music starts around 10. Visit www.three20south.com for more information.
