ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Engaging, riveting, sad and humorous; demanding the audience to participate both live and while listening to their albums; SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB has been branded with every musical description possible. This seems fitting, as SCAC describes their music as American (Is that not what America is and has been, a mixture of every one and thing resulting in something new?); and after a decade of working and living as SCAC, they have created their own genre. The instruments are drums, upright bass, pedal steel, banjos, piano, guitar, vocals and stories. They have recorded critically acclaimed albums (Village Voice, Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle) on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles label. Spin Magazine and No Depression have described them as the best live band in America. The songs are each thoughtfully crafted with unique arrangements, executed by superb musicianship, then fully realized through original, insightful and intelligent lyrics. With two of the most charismatic frontmen around (Westword) and four accomplished musicians (Wovenhand, Delta 72, 16Horsepower), SCAC is the past, present and future of American music. SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB is from Denver, Colorado. With THE READIES: the great new band from Dan Kroha (Demolition Doll Rods, Gories, Rocket 455), Zack Weedon (Lee Marvin Computer Arm), and drummer Ben.
