Happy Wednesday y’all! I’m still in shock over this lineup! So many shows, so little time! Tonight might be one of those nights where you hit up a couple! Check out the schedule below!
Bob Mould @ Terminal West
Those familiar with the decades-spanning oeuvre of Bob Mould—from his pioneering early ’80s work with Hüsker Dü to his solo work in singer-songwriter, electronic, and rock modes, to the deafening pop sparkle of Sugar—might expect a new album bearing the title Silver Age to be a somber and reflective set in the mode of his last album, 2009’s Life and Times…and they’d be way off the mark. Come hear what his newest album is all about tonight at Terminal West!
Tori Kelly @ Eddie’s Attic
Tori is a true musical artisan; she started singing at age three and then picked up drums, piano and guitar shortly thereafter. She credits Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, John Mayer, Jeff Buckley, and gospel artists such as Crystal Lewis and J. Moss as her musical influences, which are reflected in her soulful pop/rock blend. Hopefully you grabbed tickets to her show before they SOLD OUT!
Drivin N Cryin @ Star Bar
Rolling Stone claims, “Crunching hard rock is the drivin part, brittle countryish balladry the cryin, with the two linked by a heavy dose of Led Zeppelinphilia. If Paul Westerberg had grown up worshipping Angus Young instead of Alex Chilton, the Replacements might have sounded something like this Atlanta band.”
Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band @ Smith’s Olde Bar
Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills comes Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band playing a brand of Americana and Blues that stands alone – Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire – best know, this trio is a force to be reckoned with. The growl of a good truck engine, the fiercest passion for his country home and family and an uncanny ability to breathe new life into old forms of music give them a pedigree many Americana acts would kill for and an ironclad work ethic keeps them on the road 250 dates a year, playing for the people with hurricane force.
The A&R Southern Talent Expo II Artists @ Vinyl
Playpro Media presents the A&R Southern Talent Expo at Vinyl! Come check out a variety of local musicians, with different musical backgrounds and sound, sing, play and perform to the best of their ability!
Thrones @ 529
Thrones began in 1994 with an untitled cassette on the Punk in My Vitamins? label. He soon released the “Reddleman” single. In 1996, Thrones signed to Communion Records to issue the full-length album Alraune. Thrones then signed to Kill Rock Stars and released the single “The Suckling.” After an extended hiatus beginning in 2001, Thrones began regularly performing live again in May 2006.
Wovenhand @ The Earl
One could never accuse David Eugene Edwards of being idle; he is a man of purpose, a man of mission, a man consumed. In the two years since the release of Wovenhand’s critically acclaimed The Threshingfloor, he has toured the US three times and Europe four; has created a 110-page hand-illustrated book of lyrics (Black of the Ink); released a double-live album/DVD (Live at Roepaen); was recruited for a new album and reunion tour of Australian indie legends Crime and The City Solution; and now, has revealed an extraordinary new Wovenhand album, The Laughing Stalk.
Boney James @ Center Stage
Three-time GRAMMY nominee Boney James has returned with a dynamic, genre-busting album “The Beat”. One of the most successful instrumental artists of our time with sales totaling over 3 million records, James’ new project fuses his R&B/Jazz roots with Latin rhythm and percussion.
Crystal Castles @ The Tabernacle
Crystal Castles is a Canadian electronic experimental band formed in 2004 in Toronto consisting of producer Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass. The duo is known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi melancholic homemade productions.
Ford Theatre Reunion @ The Drunken Unicorn
Listen: the Ford Theatre Reunion has been on a quest to return sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll to the circus since 2008. Despite the unusual instrumentation, challenging song arrangements, and fanciful dress, even the casual observer will recognize what FTR’s main purpose is: to fuck shit up.
