LIVE AFTER FIVE – 2020 SCHEDULE
June 4 – Medium Build
Anchorage, Alaska based Medium Build is the project of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Nick Carpenter. He creates richly layered, pop-rock tracks that are more than meet the ear. Weaving raw, emotionally honest lyrics with driving instrumentation, Carpenter effortlessly blends the electronic with the analog and draws the audience into sad songs you can dance to.
June 11 – Blackwater Railroad Company
Alaska’s biggest folk rock band and 2018 Live After Five crowd favorite, Blackwater Railroad Company is back again for Live After Five to get everybody dancing. Like good moonshine, this folk-rock group was formed in the small town of Seward in 2012, and consistently delivers warm, cheery evenings. The music can be defined in many ways, but the overarching themes include folk, bluegrass, rhythm and blues and country songwriters from the late 60s and 70s.
June 18 – Rosie & the Buds
Rosie Rush is a singer songwriter from Anchorage, Alaska. She has an interest in a wide variety of genres including funk, indie, folk, and jazz, which she studies at the University of Southern California. Her sound is an interesting mix of elements from genres that have shaped her. Rosie’s music is influenced by the works of Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway, Bob Dylan, Norah Jones, Bon Iver, and Racheal Price. Rosie’s immense love of her family and the natural world have heavily affected her songwriting. Being a lifelong Alaskan, Rosie grew up outside in the summer sun and the winter snow. Rosie is working very hard on a debut album that will be released hopefully in the next 3-4 months.
June 25 – Sun Dog AK
SunDog is a heavy funkadelic band based outside of Anchorage in Chugiak, Alaska. We are Abi Sparkman, Deven Lind, and Philip Giannulis.
July 2 – Kittiwake
Kittiwake’s music is deeply personal. She uses complex key and tempo changes backed by ambient textures and heavy bass. She connects with the community through her music which is composed with deep personal lyrics that create a intimate connection with her audience. Her songs are performances, cathartic ceremonies, releasing shared trauma through sonic waves, movement, and screaming.
July 9 – The Jangle Bees
The Jangle Bees is an original and exciting rock band from Anchorage, Alaska. Their music is reminiscent of a time when twelve-string electric-guitars ruled the airwaves, and songs about heartache made you get up and dance the night away.
July 16 – Hannah Yoter Band
Hannah Yoter is well versed in the language of acoustic music. From an early age her world was filled with songs and stories that spanned generations and genres of folk music. Hannah has assembled a band and refined her sound that sits right in the middle of Americana roots and classic country. Hannah and her band have traveled all over the state for numerous performances and opened for acts such as Lonestar, Ha Ha Tonka, Pretty Gritty and The California Honeydrops.
