Sometimes You Get The Bear …

… and sometimes the bear gets you." That "win some; lose some" sentiment is a line from a Stephen Kellogg and The Sixers song, but these guys definitely seem to have gotten the bear more often than not.

The Sixers may be the hardest-working alt-folk band touring today. NPR said they’ve "steadily built a following through relentless touring and constant interaction with fans." 

They’re a little bit folk, a little bit country, and they’re master storytellers — in song and on stage. Many of their songs are autobiographical and beautiful in their honesty: "I watched you roll away,/but you didn’t even say ‘Goodbye’/And now I hate the night,/I’m guessing that’s the reason why/And this is my life on the 4th of July/It isn’t much, but at least it’s mine." 

The set list changes every night so, you’ll never see the same Sixers show twice. Sept 30 at The Visulite. Details.
