FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21ST Walter Salas-Humara with Jeff Crosby Doors at 7pm, Show at 7:30pm, Free, On the Plaza WALTER SALAS-HUMARA A Cuban-American whose parents fled Castro's Havana with him still in the womb, Walter Salas-Humara was raised bilingual in Fort Lauderdale. College in Gainesville and a residency with the Vulgar Boatmen left him with a lifelong habit of Mudcrutch/Tom Petty-style crunchy guitar riffs. Chasing the punk prairie fire to New York just in time to sift through the ashes, he formed The Silos in 1985 and was  was voted Best New American Band in the Rolling Stone Critics' Poll of 1987, and according to The New York Times, "His austere style inflects the astringent twang of The Velvet Underground with R.E.M. and adds countryish echoes that recall Gram Parsons. The Silos recorded 12 albums, appeared on Late Night with David Letterman and put in thousands of miles on the road. JEFF CROSBY Born and raised in Idaho, Jeff Crosby has been sharing his unique perspective of Americana throughout the US and beyond for the past decade. His songs and stories paint a picture of the hardships and beauty of being raised and living in small town America, to five years living in a shoe box apartment off Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles CA. Then traveling and living on the road playing 250 shows a year. Though recently making the move to Nashville TN, Jeff continues to spend majority of his time touring the country. After spending the last two years splitting his time between playing guitar for Widespread Panic song-writer Jerry Joseph and performing with his own band, The Refugees, Jeff hit the studio to record his fourth full length album, Postcards from Magdalena. These new songs were inspired by the places and cultures Crosby experienced while traveling and touring across the U.S., Iceland, the U.K., Mexico, Colombia, Nicaragua, and Alaska.
