Enjoy Klyde Warren Park's local artist showcase, Set List on the Green!
This week's lineup features:
7 - 7:30 pm: Darrin Kobetich
"Kobetich’s fingerstyle... [is] an almost hypnotic display of technical proficiency not just of instrumental acumen, but further an indication of techniques from all over the world. The tunes bear within them a sense of transit, of a journey across a distance. You might notice Middle Eastern sounds, even African or Asian tones; or you could simply allow yourself to be carried away upon the stream of sound he is able to generate.”
- Lyle Brooks, Fort Live (Sep 11, 2012)

8:30- 9:30 pm: Northern National
Northern National is an Alternative/Pop band based out of Dallas, TX. Started by John Michael Kanne, Michael Rossi, & Michael Allen Wilson, Northern National's debut album "Young & in Love" is set to release on September 2nd, 2014.
When asked about the feel of the debut album, the band responds, "Love is an ancient thing. But in moments it is made brand new. "Young & in Love" is about those moments. Love can be intense, sweet, fun, spontaneous, whimsical, or relaxed, and the variety of sounds in the record reflects the variety of forms that a young love can take. It doesn't all sound the same, because love never is. We wanted to capture that."
Be on the look out for Northern National to make a splash in the Fall of 2014/Spring of 2015. Already the band has booked multiple shows including opening for Pop/Rock bands: Paradise Fears, Hollywood Ending, & William Beckett in September.
"Young & in Love" goes on iTunes Pre-Order August 12th, with the single "She" releasing the same day.
