INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — As the number of craft breweries continues to rise throughout the country, so does the number of breweries that are choosing to host live music.

No band knows this better than the one-time Nashville-based indie folk-rock duo You Knew Me When. After uprooting from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in June of 2012, the husband and wife indie folk-rock duo set plans to tour the nation for a full yearŠ; however, they never stopped.

Since that time, they have been serving up their craft brewed compositions coast to coast throughout the USA and into Canada, and recently surpassed their 110th craft brewery performance in 25 states across the USA.

Continuing to tour in support of their 2015 album “We Found Roads” and their 2016 EP “The Only You EP,” You Knew Me When will perform a free show at 6 p.m. at Alibi Ale Works in Incline Village on Wednesday, April 27.

“We have garnered a tremendous appreciation over the past three plus years on the road for the ever progressing craft brewery movement,” said Cie Hoover, of You Knew Me When, “not only because of the beer, but because of their appreciation of the arts and live music.”

While blending their vocals, Karisa Hoover provides the piano, ukulele, glockenspiel and percussive elements, as Cie supplies the guitar and other rhythmic nuances. The cumulative result is a musical style and live show that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a pop/rock mentality.
