Chronic Illness Relief Fund
Join us for an amazing night of great music and people all in the name of Chronic Illness Relief. Six of Charlotte's best local bands have generously donated their time and energy (so buy their merch!) all to raise awareness about a non-profit organization, CIRF. CIRF aims to provide support for people afflicted with chronic illnesses who are too burdened by their diseases to work, go to school or have any semblance of a normal life they once knew. Raising awareness for a selfless cause and supporting great local music in the same night -- who could beat that?! For more information about who we are and what we're doing, check out cirfhelps.org
Bless These Sounds Under the City
Recorded, engineered, and mixed by Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Azure Ray, Saddle Creek Records) we recommend listening to their latest album "On The Brink Of Life".
From beautiful harmonies to skilled guitar and piano ballads to hip-hop and electronic pop, these 2 multi-instrumentalists give you an experience that will not disappoint.
Albert Strawn and Derrick J. Hines formed Bless These Sounds Under The City in 2013. "We just want people to enjoy our music. So, if you have a relaxed moment and you take your own personal time to listen to a song or 2 from one of our albums then we thank you and appreciate you for giving us a moment and a chance." Albert & Derrick
Sinners & Saints
"Sinners and Saints is a card-carrying member of the Queen City’s Milkjug Records, a roster chock-full of jamtastic alt-country groups. The trio is led by singer-songwriter Perry Fowler, whose vocals have just the faintest hint of a more controlled, bluegrass-tinged Daniel Johnston. The trio’s foot-stomping and picking bounces into Avetts territory with one of its latest tracks, “I Don’t Want to Work.” It’s a sweet and catchy love song about staying in bed all day with the object of said affection. The tambourine, strings and harmonies seal the deal, concocting an indie-country sound ripe for crunchy WNCW fans. "
Foot Stompin' whiskey drinkin' sweet lovin' music
Reeve Coobs is a singer-songwriter from the south – specifically, from Charlotte, North Carolina. She creatively blends folk, pop, country, and rock into an original sound of her own. Her lyrics are smart and real, and her voice is rich and haunting and leaves you wanting more. Reeve's songs can sometimes be uncomfortably honest, but that is what makes her such a moving performer. She has a very powerful voice but unlike most voices you hear today, Reeve knows when to keep it soft and light. Her thoughtful lyrics and voice joined with her tasteful guitar playing makes for an extremely rare talent. In 2005 Reeve won the Creative Loafing of Charlotte Reader’s Pick award for Best Female Vocalist.
The daughter of guitar maker Jack Coobs and ever-lovin' music fan Caydea, Reeve grew up immersed in music. She started singing around the age of three and performing on stage a few years later. In high school she joined the ecumenical touring show choir, The New Vibrations. They toured all around The Carolinas and also as far as Texas, Florida, Chicago, and New York. She and a few other "New Vibes" members formed the band Exit Up which she played with until she moved away for college. She went to King College in Bristol, TN on a vocal scholarship. She started writing more and more and playing with friends at local coffee shops. She began to fall in love with the idea of becoming a "real" singer-songwriter.
In early 2013, members of the groups The Spiveys and Transmission Fields came together to form the band pilot/copilot in Charlotte, NC. Their music combines elements of the mid 90's lofi rock movement with bits of post-rock experimentation and powerpop. One of the goals of a pilot/copilot performance is to provide the audience with a little sonic variety in the form of acoustic guitars, clean electric guitars, sickly distorted guitars, synths, pretty singing, ugly screaming, booming bass, and mathy drums. They are currently working on their debut CD which is set to be released later this year.
Kodiak Brotherhood is a home-grown outlaw country band hailing from Concord, NC. A four-piece made up of longtime, experienced musicians who've played in (and still do play with) the likes of The New Familiars, Sugar Glyder, Solar Cat, and more. The band is a refreshing melody of organic vocals, masterful sliding guitar riffs and raucous, precise drumming
Elonzo is an independent rock band based out of Rock Hill, South Carolina area. In the heart of the Carolina Piedmont, they write songs about everyday life: sitting around on the front porch, watching the train go by, loss of loved ones, childhood, their hometown and their dreams. Elonzo's music represents some of the most classic elements of the Southeastern United States: earnestness, good story-telling, and an awareness of tragedy that never seems too far around the corner. The band's sound can transform from stripped alt-country to a richer, more expansive vision that reflects the meaningfulness of the ties that bind us together. Mostly, it sounds like rock and roll.
