BravoArtist and Take This To Heart Records joined together to bring us ‘Summer Bummer,’ at Mahall’s in Lakewood, OH, on July 20.

‘Summer Bummer’ included an array of 16 artists from City Mouth to Elbowroom and bigger names such as Jetty Bones, Hot Mulligan and headliner, Homesafe.

The Show was set up in 3 different places across the venue. This included the locker room, main room and apt. room. We were lucky enough to catch Hot Mulligan, Jetty Bones and Homesafe.

Jetty Bones bounces around the small space of a stage belting-out her lyrics. JB has an infectious energy as she powers through tracks like “Clear Honey” and “No Lover.” Her banter between tracks are nurturing, making sure the crowd takes care of each other and their personal space.

After Jetty Bones came Hot Mulligan, from beginning to end the band exudes intensity. Playing through songs such as “All You Wanted By Michelle Branch” and their serene track, “Pluto Was Never Really A Planet Either.” The band also blew through “How Do You Know It’s Not Armadillo Shells?” with strength that make the audience feel lost in their performance. HM ends their set with vigorous track “Something About A Bunch Of Dead Dogs.

“From the beginning of headliners, Homesafe's set, the energy of the crowd intensifies. It was a late show, but you could tell that they were the band that everyone was most eager to see. Playing new songs from their most recent album release, One, “Run” and personal favorite “Vanilla-Scented Laser Beams.” Keeping their set diverse by playing long-time hits from Evermore, “Guts” and “Relapse.” Homesafe put on a very engaging performance, keeping the crowd pumped up even after attending the long ‘Summer Bummer’ fest. If you have a chance to see them you won’t be disappointed.” - Judy Skerkavich
