Independence Weekend at Mock Crest Tavern

What a great way to celebrate your freedom and Independence! Join Mock Crest Tavern for a weekend filled with fantastic food, cold drinks and free live music!

Suburban Slim begins the freedom fest weekend Friday night, July 5th at 9:00 p.m.

Suburban Slim is a multi-award winning guitarist, singer and songwriter.  After touring Oregon, he  moved to Eugene, where he lived for 15 years before relocating to Portland in search of a broader music venue. Not long after, he released three CD’s of original tunes. Hop on over and check out Suburban Slim on YouTube.

Mock Crest Tavern welcomes Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery. Their performances starts at 9:00 p.m. Saturday, July 6th.

Joshua and his folk band base their sound on a 1903 silent Western, and  have grown and worked with the Americana tradition ever since. The heart of their songs thrive in the art of storytelling.  Their stories encompass the idea that we are all human together.

The band was born in the heartland, but there is a strong undertone of Southern influence. They’re often compared to Iron and Wine and Fionn Regan, but with an unmistakable grit. Joshua and the band spent nearly two years in Indiana playing at every bar and coffeehouse that would open their doors to them.

The band has two new releases: “The Commonwealth EP”, available for free on Noise Trade, and a new LP, “Man Is Born For Trouble”, available from digital outlets.

Their self-produced debut EP, “We All Say Hello”, had great exposure and success on Noise Trade in 2011. It also shared the chart with acts including “The Civil Wars” and “Young the Giant”.

Download their new EP, “The Commonwealth,” from Noise Trade and board the train today! You can also visit their website for additional information.

Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
