BANDS

Eureka California – Athens, GA
Saturday September 12 @3pm – Ruby Deluxe

 

Eureka California hail from the Southeast’s other indie hub Athens (in conjunction with Greensboro, NC and NC’s Triangle). Their latest full length, Crunch, is riff heavy and super nostalgic punk. Check out their latest single, “Happy Again” above. Check their day show out, it’s sponsored by Riot Act Media.

Guardian Alien – Queens, NY
Thursday September 10 @4:30 – Kings Barcade

For a band that recently posted about playing at a few yoga studio sessions you’d think that they’d be super chill and ethereal – well while they have those capabilities Guardian Alien also have the ability to put together intricate and ‘meta as fuck’ ruckus.

Danny Joe Machado – Columbia, SC
Friday September 11 @12:45 – Legends Nightclub

The reason this guy makes the list mostly has to do with how sorry we feel for him. Coming off an album release party in which the other bands, I mean we are talking openers, without a doubt out shined headliner Danny Joe Machado – you’ll never listen to music again.

Mild High Club – Chicago/Los Angeles
Saturday September 12 @12:15 – Slim’s Downtown

The band’s name says it all – the stoner laden psych rock is reminiscent of the late 60’s early 70’s, you can definitely hear the Connan Mockasin and Tame Impala influence.


Dear Blanca – Columbia, SC
Friday September 11 @3:45 – Legends Nightclub

Columbia, SC’s Dear Blanca is filled with emotion and lyrical prowess. These post punk jams come your way via regional (to me local) label Post-Echo mostly known for their electronic tastes but with Dear Blanca and Art Contest in their ranks they are branching out. The melding between Dylan Dickerson’s voice and guitar playing create a distinctive sound that is easy to recognize and latch onto.

Day Parties

Let Feedback Ring – Sponsored by Negative Fun and Egghunt
Saturday September 12 – 11-5 @ Legends Nightclub


The Wyrms – Carrboro, NC
