But why imagine? Be here!

In April - A return to the larger, outdoor Music Cafe Stage as Sarah Potenza kicks off the

2nd Summer Series at the BMC&TL!

Nashville-based songwriter, activist and vocal powerhouse

Sarah Potenza will release her second solo album, titled 'Road To Rome,' on International Women's Day, March 8th. Rolling Stone says "New album ‘Road To Rome’ captures the huge voice and defiant spirit of Sarah Potenza. "I Work for Me" is a vibrant and danceable soul song brimming with confidence and boasting production that calls to mind the Mark Ronson vibe of Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black.” And on April 27th, The Big Boss - Sarah Potenza, will bring all that, plus her Hoss, Ian Crossman on hot baritone guitar, in a return to the Bootleg to kick off the second year in a row, (and this will only be the 2nd year, so it’s a tradition already) the Summer Series on the Music Café outdoor stage!

Misner & Smith

Misner & Smith can shake the walls like a freight train and then quiet the room to a whisper in a single song.

With two singers who could easily lead a band independently, Sam and Megan sing with one voice, with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment.

The band’s sound harkens back to the bedrock of american rock & folk, but the diversity of styles and genres are one of the things that set M&S apart.

Close your eyes and you’ll be swept up in a sound that you’ll swear is a full band. The combination of musical dexterity and vocal prowess packs a punch that will linger with you for a long time to come.


A Dynamic Duo

At well over a million miles of roadwork, including two stints as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra, Pete and Maura Kennedy show no signs of slowing down either on tour or in the creative realm.

Originally based in Austin, Texas, they now reside in the East Village in New York City. The Kennedys are known nationwide as the hosts of the late lamented Dharma Café program on Sirius Satellite Radio, and on Broadway, they are regular cast members of Theatre Within's annual tribute to John Lennon — working in that capacity with Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Jackson Browne, Cyndi Lauper and a host of others.

Life on the road and time spent in the creative ecosystem of the Village have informed their songwriting over the course of 14 duo albums and half a dozen side projects, with The Kennedys' music having been described as uplifting, empowering and encouraging.


Katie Kuffel lit up the Tiki Lounge in November, and now the Trio returns to the Music Café stage to bring her original music to a larger audience. Her first Bootleg Concert was highlighted in the Sac Bee Tickets Sections: “Upon opening up Katie Kuffel’s sensuous new record “Take It Up,” rich aromas of Regina Spektor or Norah Jones will immediately waft up. The comparisons are as well-deserved as they are apropos, but this collection of songs feels like a potentially self-defining “hello, world” moment for a Seattle songwriter teeming with sultry, refined classical talent and a corralled intensity that holds on just tight enough to ensure safety while traversing its emotional rawness.”
