Americana Night



Cloverdale Arts Alliance continues to offer original Americana acts on third Thursdays!

On Thursday, May 18, the Cloverdale Arts Alliance’s Americana Night will end its season with the one and only, a true original, The Sam Chase. 

Hailing from the hills of San Francisco, The Sam Chase has a voice like a nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bed sheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much whiskey. 

In 2012, his long awaited first album was released. “The Sam Chase Will Lead Us to Victory” took Chase and his group, The Untraditional, across the United States and back to their home in the Bay Area. The cry came for more, so the band dove head first into “The Sam Chase Will Never Die,” which was released in May 2013. The Sam Chase has been honored as “Best Singer-Songwriter” by SF Bay Guardian Best Of The Bay Readers Poll 2013, and “Best Band” by SF Weekly Best Of The Bay Readers Poll 2013 & 2014.

The Cloverdale Arts Alliance is located at 204 N. Cloverdale Blvd. Tickets are $15 for Cloverdale Arts Alliance members and $20 for non-members. Doors open at 7:00 pm; music from 7:30 – 9:30 pm. Americana Night  takes place the third Thursday of each month from October through May.

To receive reserved seating privileges purchase advance tickets online at www.cloverdaleartsalliance or at the Cloverdale Arts Alliance during normal business hours. Tickets are available at the door.
