Anchorage hot spot to showcase local musical talent Friday, Saturday

Craig MedredAlaska Dispatch

The Taproot Public House in midtown Anchorage will host the Monolith Agency's second musical showcase Friday and Saturday. Here's a quick preview of what to expect.

Friday, Sept. 14: Emma Hill will open at 8 p.m. followed by Super Saturated Sugar Strings, Ghost Hands, LaVoy and Historian with guest James Glaves.

Saturday Sept. 15: Hawkins Wright kicks of the lineup, again at 8 p.m., with Young Fangs, The Sweeteners, The Modern Savage and Alex and The Lion following.

Tickets are $10 for one night but, if you want to save a little dough, you can drop $15 for both shows. Tickets are available online here, but only until 6 p.m. Friday. After that, you'll have to get them at the door, so bring cash.

The Monolith Agency is "an artist-centered business who’s primary goal is to provide high quality booking and publicity services for independent musicians." The agency is responsible for bringing independent musical talent such as Tumbledown House and Black Carl to Alaska. It also represents local musicians and bands wishing to perform in state. Monolith is comprised of Whipsaws front man Evan Philips and bassists Marc Bourdon of Historian and Martin Severin of Jack River Kings.
