Dartboard Records Showcase with Gin Mill Hollow and Sunspot
September 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Sunspot – https://sunspot.bandcamp.com/
With their uncanny lyrics, massive harmonies, and six-string fireworks, Sunspot has been touring the rock underground for over two decades. Just beyond the radio and just outside the mainstream, Sunspot sings driving electro-rock anthems that capture the fantastic and bring it back down to Earth. Sunspot has shared the stage with Death Cab for Cutie, Andrew WK, and Flaming Lips and the band has won the Wisconsin Area Music Industry’s Artist of the Year, an honor shared with Garbage, the Violent Femmes, and Bon Iver. Their album “Weirdest Hits” was named Rock Album of the Year at the 2016 Madison Area Music Awards.
Gin Mill Hollow – http://ginmillhollow.com/
The music of Gin Mill Hollow is a marriage of experienced song composition and emotive lyrical content. A blend of Americana styles including roots, bluegrass, and folk performed on stringed instruments of all varieties creates a sonic landscape that can be enjoyed by the casual listener and avid music fan alike. In less than three years together the trio of Josh Giudice on mandolin, Mark Norman on upright bass and acoustic guitar, and Dan Plourde on electric guitar and ukulele bass have performed over 160 shows around the mid-west. With a new album in the works and a rigorous touring schedule, Gin Mill Hollow continues to evolve and push their craft to new heights.
