On this night, Watson will release their 5th studio album, Mouth of the South.

Aptly described as “modern classic rock,” Watson blends their influences from legendary acts such as Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and The Who with their modern favorites Wilco, Drive-by Truckers and The Black Keys to create a blend of crowd pleasing rock.

Watson was formed in 2001 by high school friends Jon Gotreau and Brian Weber. Performing in local coffee shops and bars, the duo honed their songwriting skills while building a loyal Twin Cities fan base. With an open door philosophy for additional band members, several local musicians jammed with the duo until they found drummer Brian Mondl (formerly of The Rakes). Permanently joining the fold in 2004, Mondl’s drumming added a new dimension to Watson’s songs. The new trio performed a handful of shows before bassist Adam Vander Poel came aboard and flushed out the Watson sound.

The 2000s were filled with shows, songwriting and recording. The band released their first studio album, Been Here Before in 2006, followed closely by their second album All I Want To Know in 2008. In 2011, Adam & his wife moved to India for work, but he continued adding bass lines to songs for the band’s third album Turn Up The Distance, thus making Watson an international recording group. The original trio of Jon, Brian & Brian continued to perform and write music during Adam’s international hiatus, and released their fourth album, aptly titled IV, in 2014. In 2015, Paul Feiner began playing gigs with watson, adding a deep knowledge of cover songs, and the ability to pull off a triple guitar attack.

With two decades of shows under their belt, the band shows no signs of slowing down. You can catch them at local breweries and other music venues around the Twin Cities.

1030p Capital Sons
Capital Sons seamlessly blend their musical influences and pop-rock nature into a high energy, unique and poignant catalog of music.

They have released two albums, starting in 2005 with a well received self-titled album. Local station 89.3 The Current routinely played tracks off this album. In 2008 they released their sophomore album Dirty Neon. And on November 9th, 2013, Capital Sons will release their latest work. An EP with seven tracks called Swim The High Tide. A solid studio release from the band, possibly the best sounding yet.
