If you missed Georgia-based alt rockers Futurebirds’ stop in Nashville earlier this year, you’re in luck. They are bringing their unique mix of southern rock and grungy 1970s psychedelia to Mercy Lounge on Dec. 16, along with support from T. Hardy Morris. Tickets are still available for only $15, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one very lucky reader. Click below for your chance to win and to find out more about this awesome show.
Indie rockers Futurebirds hail from Athens, Georgia, and have been making waves with their experimental alt-country sound since 2008. After the release of their debut album, 2010’s Hampton’s Lullaby, and their follow-up EP Via Flamina, they became known for their distinctive mixture of pedal steel and electric guitar. At the same time, they quickly developed a strong stage presence, which has helped them gain a strong legion of fans who come out to show after show.
With the release of their third album Hotel Parties, the band showcased a fuller and more mature sound that showed just how far they’d come musically in just seven years. As alt-country steadily grows in popularity, Futurebirds still manages to create music outside the norm.
T. HARDY MORRIS
If there’s one word to describe T. Hardy Morris, it would be unique. From his mixture of country and psych-rock with project Dead Confederate to the supergroup Diamond Rugs, he constantly keeps a hand in the most wonderfully weird musical outlets. Last year, he released Drownin’ on a Mountaintop under the moniker Hardy & The Hardknocks. The record mixes the fuzz and emotion of great grunge rock with the darkness of the moodiest alt-country honky tonk tunes. If you’re looking for something gritty and experimental, make sure to get there early to check out his surprising sound.
