DLM Live's ongoing house show series is preparing for another Friday at a home on 26th Street in Merced. It's taking the music outdoors.
The Jessica Styler Band, Awahnichi and the Lost Cats will be performing in the back yard of a home at 444 W. 26th St., according to a DLM Live press release.
Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $10. The large back yard with a sprawling deck and beautiful gardens will add to the already unique venues that DLM Live has tabbed for its shows.
To date, they have hosted events at Coffee Bandits, in the living room of a downtown home and in the lobby of the Multicultural Arts Center.
"The point of these shows is to create intimate venues for music lovers to come and experience the music in a different way," says Tom Price, co-promoter for DLM Live. "We want the folks who are involved in our local music scene to become more attached to what we are doing and realize the amazing talent we are showcasing here in Merced."
Styler is a multi-talented vocalist and musician that plays a unique instrument called a Hang. The instrument is constructed from two half-shells of steel sheet glued together at the rim leaving the inside hollow and creating a distinct UFO shape and amazingly unique sound.
Locals Awahnichi will also perform their unique brand of folks music sharing their poetic tales of nature, sorrow and beauty. For more information, visit www.thedlm.com.
