www.ramsheadlive.com

· Regina Spektor — A veteran of New York’s anti-folk scene, Regina Spektor makes quirky, highly eclectic, but always personal music. An enormously idiosyncratic composer and lyricist, Spektor combines eclectic and evocative melodies with intricately structured character studies that owe more to Chekhov and Gogol than to most modern songwriters (9/19)

Guitarist-lead vocalist Jon Gutwillig has declared that the goal of the group is to create the wildest — or craziest — music of all time (10/26)
· Martin Sexton with Melissa Ferrick – An evening of soul-filled folk music (10/27)
· Morrissey -- As the lead singer of the Smiths, arguably the most important indie band in Britain during the ’80s, Morrissey’s theatrical crooning and literate, poetic lyrics connected powerfully with a legion of similarly sensitive, disaffected youth (10/31)
· Dark Star Orchestra — A Grateful Dead tribute band named after the Dead’s famous song ”Dark Star.” The idea behind the Dark Star Orchestra is that, at each of its concerts, the band re-creates a specific Grateful Dead concert, playing the same songs in the same arrangements on similar equipment (12/29)
