haven’t had the chance to listen to too much of THE WHIGS but they seem to be all over the place as of late. This ATHENS, GA trio has some solo runs and then will be joining up with some heavy hitters like The HOLDSTEADY, KINGS of LEON and The BLACK KEYS for dates all over the US as well as a one off in LONDON.
Tonight locals LENDWAY + TORPEDO RODEO get in on the action.
“The band’s third disc is the sharpest distillation of its neo-college rock yet, with Animal collective producer Ben H. Allen’s arty wall-of-sound approach brightening singer Parker Gispert’s underdog anthems while rarely slowing them down.” ROLLING STONE
Lendway is rock band embedded with pop sensibility that utilizes the character charm of rich vocal harmonies and tasteful sounds capes.
Three geeky dudes converge on an epic plateau of suspended adolescence! Never a band to give a lukewarm performance, Torpedo Rodeo know that to warm up a crowd in a cold, cold place like Burlington, VT, you have to play some hot, hot music.
