Mick Rhodes and The Hard Eight - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Mick Rhodes and The Hard Eight
Mick Rhodes and the Hard Eight hail from the arid desert region east of Los Angeles, just close enough to the city to venture in and take what they need from the town of tinsel, leave the rest behind, and return to their outlying creative hub to plot their next record or tour.

Thriving outside the mainstream for the past 10 years has helped MR8 develop into one of the country’s best live bands. Battling it out independently, MR8 have released two records, “’Til I am Dust,” and “Paradise City,” both on Hot Tramp Records. Their third long-player, “The One You Can’t Have,” is set to be released April 13, 2018. The LP’s first single and video, “When a Man Turns to Whiskey,” is directed by Solid Ray Woods, formerly of the Jayhawks and Victoria Williams’ band, and will be out March 1.

“Paradise City,” received raves for its eclectic take on Americana, country, soul, blues and rock, with the single “Married Girls” appearing on several critics’ song-of-the-year lists.

The band’s reputation as a fearsome live unit has helped it land invitations to play to thousands at arena shows, and to regular gigs at well-known Southern California venues like Pappy and Harriet’s, the Redwood, the Echo and the Cinema Bar. The band tours the West regularly, with shows in Texas, Arizona, Nevada and Northern California, and will appear at the 2018 South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas on March 15 at the Carousel Lounge.
