We told you last week that we are really excited about this show featuring Virginia rockers Avers and local support Andrew Leahey & The Homestead and Mateja at The Stone Fox on March 13. Tickets are available for a mere $8, but one lucky reader has the chance to win a pair of tickets on us below.
Read on for more info about the bands and to enter to win!
Avers began the way we suspect a lot of bands begin. A couple of friends got together to hang, started nerding out over music gear, a few licks were traded, and a sound was born. Over time, more and more musicians began to jam with them, and this young sound was fleshed out into the Avers that we know today – a genre blurring mix of psychedelic, reverb, hooks, pop and indie rock, that has Avers as one of the fast rising acts in the blogosphere. Check out the track “The Only One” from their debut album Empty Light below to get a taste.
ANDREW LEAHEY & THE HOMESTEAD
Things quited down in the world of Andrew Leahey a couple of years ago. The Nashville based songwriter was diagnosed with a brain tumor that threatened to take his hearing and, possibly, his life. Luckily, surgery was able to remove the tumor and save his hearing – and LIFE. The doctors told Andrew to take a break from music, but, during his recovery, he knew that couldn’t last too long. Life had given him a second chance, and he wasn’t going to miss out. He hit the studio with Ken Coomer (Wilco) to record a new record that will be released soon. In the meantime, you can have a listen to a track “Little In Love” below.
Micah Kolk has only called Nashville home since late 2013, but, in such a short period of time, his project Mateja has certainly garnered attention. Well crafted songs and lush vocals bring to life a soundtrack that will feel like a warm blanket on a snowy night. Have a listen to the track “Bones And Flesh” below to get a taste.
