Join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion in Harry A. Nottingham Park for another sensational performance at AvonLIVE! on Wednesday, August 10th starting at 5:00 p.m. You will not want to miss this week’s headliner, TK and The Holy Know Nothings, who are known for their incredible storytelling and groove-heavy bar band feel and performing at 7:00 p.m.
TK and The Holy Know Nothings is perhaps Taylor Kingman's most beloved project. Half-dutifully and half-facetiously self-dubbed "psychedelic doom boogie," the group was born out of Kingman's desire to create a loose, groove-heavy bar band that never sacrifices the importance of good, honest songwriting. Doing so required pulling together a local supergroup of friends, neighbors, and fellow Laurelthirst royalty, including drummer Tyler Thompson and multi-instrumentalists Jay Cobb Anderson (lead guitar, harmonica), Lewi Longmire (bass, guitar, pedal steel, flugelhorn, mellotron, lap steel) and Sydney Nash (keys, bass, slide guitar, cornet). It's a band of deeply contrasting styles buoyed by a sincere and palpable mutual trust -- one that allows them to find and lose the groove with the same ease. They build graceful, spaced-out landscapes around Kingman's storytelling -- his voice ragged and broken one moment and raging the next -- only to deconstruct them through a fit of manic and often dissonant rabbit holes. And Kingman's equally irreverent, delicate, and cerebral first-person narratives somehow merge seamlessly with it all.
TK and The Holy Know Nothings’ new album is above all things true to the moment it was created, full of lessons unheeded and questions unanswered. In the end, it will always exist in that moment and whatever moment it shares with its listeners. Kingman sums it up best: "The Incredible Heat Machine is a haunted jukebox on wheels and God's own check engine light. It's a locomotive composed of living parts linked by some buck-toothed telepathy allowing it to make it down the tracks where there is no final answer or destination, just movement and feeling."
Opening for TK and The Holy Know Nothings is Satellite 13 from Summit County, CO. After years of playing in the same circles and collaborating on several projects, the 4 individuals (Johnny Truscelli, Jessie Rose, Tyler Easton, and Leo Lopez) united as Satellite 13, bringing together different backgrounds and influences to create a modern sound with rock roots. This edgy style appeals to the younger listener looking for the most innovative new music, as well as the seasoned music fan still wanting to rock.
