Scattered Trees, Quiet Corral, Envy Corps 

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
The biggest stage that Quiet Corral has played to date was also its first. Last winter, the Lawrence band unleashed its Americana chamber folk in an admittedly strange spot: a sorority parking lot at the University of Kansas. Delta Gamma's fifth annual battle-of-the-bands fundraiser, titled (of course) Delta Jamma, took place on a fold-out stage better suited for festivals than for local benefit shows. Lacking enough material to fill a 20-minute set, the band members tuned their guitars with shaky hands, trying to ignore first-gig jitters. Isaac Flynn recalls it fondly. "We told ourselves we'd never get to play a stage that big again," he says. "The girls even hand-made this awesome banner that said Quiet Corral with a boot and a cowboy hat, like we were a country band." Quiet Corral didn't win the battle but, looking back on the group's first year, it may have won the war.
