Tumbleweed Wanderers Headline Oakland’s Starline Social Club // Friday April 8th

Oakland’s own Tumbleweed Wanderers play their first hometown headlining show in over three years on Friday, April 8th.
Tumbleweed Wanderers, who released one of the best Bay Area albums of 2015 in June, have managed to sidestep the Oakland spotlight as of late. They’ve opened up for big names like Jackie Greene and Greensky Bluegrass but consistently avoided the headlining slot in the East Bay.

Now they’re back for a big jamboree at Starline Social Club’s upstairs ballroom, and joining them are Steep Ravine and Papa Bear.

Steep Ravine’s style of bluegrass takes the traditional idiom and turns it sideways, combining complex jazz chords with beautiful sweeping melodies. They are seriously talented musicians who put on a thoroughly enjoyable show (in the past, they’ve covered “I’ve Just Seen A Face” *cough* Ihopethatsonthesetlist *cough*)

Opening up the show is a solo set by Papa Bear, whose dynamics ebb and flow, moving from big loud blues to delicate acoustic melodies. Papa Bear is especially known for bringing guest musicians up to the stage, allowing another talented songwriter to lead the band and sing a song. But whether or not he decides to share the stage, expect a surprising amount of sound from this charismatic performer.
