The Contenders

Aug 31
Thursday, August 31 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

The Contenders embody a unique optimism for a duo of troubadours. Their rich songwriting comes from their experiences on the road, meeting different people and connecting to their commonalities and inner good. But there’s a flip side, and their new album, Laughing with the Reckless, is a sad album, as it deftly conveys that unique heartbreak that comes from having allowed oneself to be so hopeful — from being intimately connected to so many different kinds of people.
