Spring Hootenanny w/ Denali Cooks & Rabbit Creek Ramblers live in the Loft

Spring Hootenanny w/ Denali Cooks & Rabbit Creek Ramblers live in the Loft

Williwaw is stoked to put on a Spring Hootenanny featuring two local favorites Denali Cooks and Rabbit Creek Ramblers on Friday, April 20th live in the birch Loft and Blues Central with special access to the roof!! (Pending weather!) 

Alaska's favorite local rock and soul/jam band Denali Cooks return to the Williwaw stage for their first Anchorage show of 2018! Woody, Larry, Jimmy, and Andy combine original music, fresh lyrics, amazing musicianship and magical harmonies. Every Cooks show is worthy of a road trip to listen and dance!

Since 1990 the Denali Cooks have paved the way for a vibrant live music scene in Alaska. They continue their tradition of Feel Good, Made in Alaska Rock and Soul Music and Williwaw is stoked that they are helping us usher in the summer with Cool Classic original and cover songs that move your feet and lift your spirits.

Local favs Rabbit Creek Ramblers is a fun band that plays fun music in front of fun crowds. Williwaw is stoked that they are returning to the stage after a winter hiatus. Simply put, Rabbit Creek Ramblers is a band comprised of friends who enjoy spending time together and playing music. But don’t confuse their laid back approach to making music with a lack of talent; having fun is the goal, but the byproduct is upbeat, danceable music.

Freddie Gibbs live in Anchorage

Freddie Gibbs live in Anchorage

SHOWDOWN ALASKA PRESENTS:

FREDDIE GIBBS LIVE FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
Date : Friday April 20th, 2018
Doors : 9PM
Tickets : Available at tixr.com/showdown
Price : $28 Early Bird / $32 General / $100 VIP (Includes early entry, laminate and meet & greet with Freddie Gibbs)
TICKETS GO ON SALE 12PM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28TH

With local openers from TUBBY & FRIENDS
(to be announced Monday 4/26)

In 2009 rapper Freddie Gibbs set out to be the Midwest's unofficial street poet, releasing a series of mixtapes that were as complex as they were lyrical. Influenced by the likes of 2Pac, Biggie, UGK, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Gibbs filled his lyrics with honest and compelling stories of his hometown's demise. Gibbs began writing his own lyrics and cut some demos that would eventually land in the hands of Interscope. When the label signed Gibbs in 2006, he moved to Los Angeles and recorded a debut album. In early 2009 he released the Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs mixtape to critical and message board acclaim. The Midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik mixtape soon followed, as did a feature in The New Yorker that found writer Sasha Frere-Jones declaring Gibbs "the one rapper I would put money on right now." Late in the year he released the 81-song mixtape The Labels Tryin' to Kill Me. As the mixtape's title inferred, Gibbs had, like Jay Electronica, become a 21st century Internet-age hip-hop star, able to draw press and earn a loyal following via downloads and mixtapes instead of the usual industry channels. Two years later he released two collaborative efforts: Piñata with Madlib, an album on the underground producer's Madlib Invazion label; and The Tonite Show with DJ Fresh, an entry in the West Coast producer's collaborative series. Gucci Mane, E-40, and Tory Lanez landed on 2015's Shadow of a Doubt, his first album for the ESGN label. In early 2017 Gibbs released "Crushed Glass," the first single from his third full-length LP, You Only Live 2wice, which dropped later that March to critical acclaim.

About Adventure Club : 

Influenced by producers like Tiësto and Skrillex, Canada’s Adventure Club blended the sounds of their inspirations, offering a mix of slick EDM and floor-rumbling dubstep. Fully in touch with the digital age, Montreal-based producers Christian Srigley and Leighton James introduced their Adventure Club project with remixes and videos uploaded to the web. They toured across North America in 2012 with no official product yet available, while 2013 saw them land gigs at the Ultra festivals in both Miami and Seoul, South Korea. That same year they dropped their debut EP, Calling All Heroes, featuring guest spots from vocalist Yuna and EDM producer the Kite String Tangle. The song “Wonder” featured the latter and hit Canada’s Top 40. Their full-length debut, Red//Blue, arrived in late 2016 and included appearances by Delaney Jane, DJ DallasK, and the electro-pop duo Sondar.

The emo pop punk quartet Hawthorne Heights came to life in the summer of 2001. Originally called A Day in the Life, the Ohio-based band saw numerous lineup changes and shifting musical styles before settling on a permanent formation. Composed of drummer Chris Popadak, bassist Matt Ridenour, vocalist/guitar player J.T. Woodruff, and guitarists Casey Calvert, Hawthorne Heights built their fan base on a demo recording and a series of self-booked national tours that saw them sharing stages with the likes of From Autumn to Ashes and the Descendents. In 2003, they signed with Chicago label Victory Records, resulting in the 2004 release of their powerful full-length debut, The Silence in Black and White. While the bandmates relentlessly toured behind it, the album became Victory's highest-selling debut, and its lead single, "Ohio Is for Lovers," slowly invaded rock radio.

Hawthorne Heights return to form with Hurt in 2015, the long awaited third EP in their Hate/Hope/Hurt trilogy. Hurt not only shines with elements rooted in their classic sound, but also showcases a maturity and level of confidence that can only be honed after twelve years of being a band. Hurt is a collection of eight songs that celebrate looking back while boldly pushing forward.

Hawthorne Heights has spent most of the last year touring the world celebrating the ten year anniversary of their second (and certified Gold) album, If Only You Were Lonely. Feeling newly inspired and invigorated, the band has returned home to Ohio to write for a new full length with a planned 2017 release.
