Mitchell Lujan: Thursday, May 19th @ 7pm
Growing up in the Silicon Valley, Mitchell Lujan bounced around many different environments but a creative mindset always remained consistent. Mitchell finds himself rooted in Rhythm & Blues but later found a love for alternative rock music after picking up the guitar. Altogether, Lujan's sound can be described as soulful, big, yet intimate with similarities to artists like John Legend, JP Cooper, John Mayer, & Allen Stone. With a handful of plans for the future, Mitchell's upcoming EP, Subject to Change is available now on iTunes and Spotify.
Hootenanny!: Friday, May 20th @ 7pm
Armed with only acoustic instruments, Hootenanny! sings and strums your favorite Rock/Pop gems and other musical curiosities.

The Refugees (Tom Petty Tribute Band) @ 8-11pm @ the Market Plaza Stage
The Refugees have been entertaining Bay Area crowds since 2007, bringing the music of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers to local stages with a stunning level of realism.
