Red Bull Sound Select is hosting their June showcase with Ben Nichols (of Lucero), Ryan Culwell, and Somebody’s Darling at The Basement East – TONIGHT, June 18. If you RSVP, you’ll pay $3, but, if not, it will be $15 at the door. Note that entry is not guaranteed once the venue’s capacity is reached, so get there early to get your spot.
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Ben Nichols is the frontman for the Memphis alt-country band Lucero. Check out Nichols covering John Mooreland’s song “God’s Medicine,” recorded in August 2014 at Off Broadway in St. Louis.
Last month, we told you here that Ryan Culwell had announced a string of dates with Hayes Carll as well as a couple hometown shows, including a recent solo set at Music City Roots and this Basement East show. We also told you that he had taken SXSW by storm with Rolling Stone Country and NPR (and others) singing his praises. Check out Culwell performing “I Think I’ll Be Their God” at Music City Roots Live From The Factory on 6.03.2015.
We recently told you about Southern rock band Somebody’s Darling and then caught their May 5th show at The Basement. Check them out performing their original song “Cold Hands” recorded live at The Granada Theater in Dallas.
Ben Nichols, Ryan Culwell, and Somebody’s Darling will perform June 18 at Basement East. The show is 21+, begins at 8 pm (doors at 7:30), and tickets are available for $3 with RSVP or $15 without at the door.
