The Watters @12am, The Capitol @10pm – $10 cover. 21+ only.
Out of Austin, Texas, The Capitol leads the funk back into the popular music landscape. The Capitol sound is a mix of old and new; a rebirth of the glory age of the funk of the 1970s when large ensembles like Earth, Wind, & Fire, and Tower of Power dominated the nation’s airwaves. The Capitol’s brand of funk is tailored to today’s listener through careful attention to pop-inspired songwriting while paying mind to the modern influence of hip-hop, R&B, and Neo-Soul.
The Watters honed their one-of-a-kind sound wandering around the country and soaking up their habitats. Born and raised in Sedona, The Watters developed their eclectic sound after living in several dramatically different cities including Los Angeles, Denver, Nashville and now Austin. Seamlessly blending Americana, Soul, Rock and Jazz, they have been described as “Fleetwood Mac with a horn section.” Daniel and Jenna Watters have collaborated on seven albums together under various monikers, and they released their debut record, GREAT UNKNOWN, as “They Watters” in 2016. They have garnered a devoted fan base through their energetic performances, stirring vocals and road-weathered musicianship. For The Watters, life and music are one, their journey together being their greatest muse.
