The Good Will Social Club & UMFM are proud to present 
Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears with Paul Cherry
Sonically inspired by the hill country blues of Junior Kimbrough, cowpunk style of The Gun Club, and the southern soul of Stax, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears’ album charts new territory with a heavy stream of lyrical consciousness.  

Recorded in their hometown of Austin, Texas, with Grammy award winning producer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) this familiar environment provided a “hands-on style of production with, open, creative interaction between the entire band,” Lewis said. The band’s fifth studio album explores the human condition through an impassioned and introspective lens.

Paul Cherewick, monikered Paul Cherry, abandoned the lofi rock sound of his first EP “on Top” and spent the next two years exploring the nuances of jazz and pop. Cherry has completely reinvented himself on his upcoming LP, Flavour
October 8 at 8 PM - 11 PM

Jonathan Richman and his drummer Tommy Larkins win fans wherever they play. In the early 1970s, Jonathan formed the noted band The Modern Lovers. Tommy Larkins was in the groups Naked Prey, Giant Sand and other popular bands in Tucson, Arizona.

The Good Will Social Club & UMFM  are proud to present Suuns with Frigs
You can hear freedom flowing through the 11 tracks on Felt. Self-produced then mixed by St Vincent producer John Congleton, the informality of self-production has enabled Suuns to explore bright new vistas – the hypnotic future-pop percolations of X-ALT or Watch You, Watch Me’s organic/synthetic rush of elevatory rhythms and the ecstatic, Harmonia-meets-Game Boy patterns. Ben Shemie has a vocal range and a penchant for buoyant melodies. The suitably outré image for Felt breaks with Suuns’ earlier darkness for a more optimistic ambience.

Frigs is a Toronto-based band that pairs the raw, emotional grunge of PJ Harvey with the psychedelic post-punk of early Sonic Youth. FRIGS creates a sound that is hard to pin down. Led by the force of Bria Salmena’s vocals and embracing the mercurial and experimental, their shows are built upon instinct.

The Good Will Social Club & UMFM present Cadence Weapon with Fat Tony & Hua Li
Cadence Weapon has consistently exhibited a passion to take rap into new and unexpected directions. Born in Edmonton, Roland “Rollie” Pemberton’s father Teddy, a Brooklyn native, was the DJ that introduced hip-hop to Edmonton with his pioneering radio show The Black Experience in Sound. In 2010, he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Stylus DJ Awards. Rollie started rapping at age 13.

Cadence is back with a new self-titled album that expands his stylistic range by incorporating elements of trap, funk, electro, techno and grime. Featuring guest appearances by Blue Hawaii and Deradoorian and production by KAYTRANADA, Jacques Greene, FrancisGotHeat, Harrison, Dubbel Dutch and more, this record finds Cadence refining his songwriting as he explores themes of individuality, race, technology and existentialism through his expressive lyrics.

Delhi 2 Dublin is a live-electronic, bhangra, hip-hop, world-pop, hybrid act. Famous for their energy onstage, the five-member crew has played over 100 shows a year for the last decade at festivals like Electric Forest (USA), Woodford Folk (Australia) and Bali Spirit Festival (Indonesia). D2D features a heavy electronic backbone with live traditional Indian instruments (dhol, tabla), fiddle, electric guitar, and the stunning punjabi-english vocals of frontman Sanjay Seran. The new album, We're All Desi sees the genre smashers continue to evolve. Teaming up with producer Nick Middleton (The Funk Hunters), the result is a call for more truth, more smiles and a lot more bass.

The friends of 10 Acre Woods are putting on a family friendly Pajama Bingo Bowl that will go towards upgrading the animal pond. 

In typical bowling, the tv screen has a list of the players playing, where each player individually tries to get his/her best score. In Bingo bowling, the tv screen represents a bingo card. In each square it will represent a different point value. One square you may need a spare or a strike. In another you need 10 points. The object is to get a black out bingo. It is about working together as a team. Each player goes up one by one and has up to 3 tries to get what you need.

We have silent auction draws, prize draws, 50/50 draw, door prizes and a snack. It is a pajama themed bingo bowl for those who wish to participate in a special prize draw.

Advance Base is new music by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone mastermind Owen Ashworth. Ashworth conjures dreamy waltzes, heavy-hearted ballads and electropop-styled torch songs from antiquated instruments such as Rhodes electric pianos, Omnichords, Wurlitzer rhythm boxes, and samplers. Their songs deal with deceased racehorses, estranged siblings, hard feelings, and all things long lost. A Shut-In's Prayer, their debut album, was number 19 on MOJO Magazine's Best Albums of 2012 list.

The World Is In A Bad Fix Everywhere, an EP of early 20th century gospel music was released in 2013. An EP of Magnetic Fields covers called Tomorrow's Homes Today was released later that year. They released a digital mixtape of compilation tracks and rarities called Plastic Owen Band in 2014. Nephew in the Wild, a new album of original material, was released in 2015. PopMatters named it the #1 Indie Pop album of 2015.

The Milk Carton Kids' "All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn't Do" marks the first time that acoustic duo Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale have brought a band into the studio with them. 

Since their last studio album, "Monterey", Pattengale has moved to, and is now producing records in, Nashville. Ryan now works as a producer on "Live from Here with Chris Thile," the reboot of "A Prairie Home Companion." Recent events provided a bruising background for the record, yet the project is somehow bigger than any personal grief. Two-part harmonies ride acoustic guitars high above the haunting landscape created by the presence of the band.
