Among Authors - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Among Authors
Since the release of their debut album, Seattle art-rock band Among Authors have received critical acclaim for both their recordings and poignant live performances. Bob Boilen of NPR Music (Founder of NPR Tiny Desk) recently said: “I was stunned by the rock band Among Authors and its original take on music that’s akin to Radiohead and explosive art rock.“ KEXP also wrote: “If you haven’t heard the name Among Authors yet, you’re about to hear it a lot. The Seattle-based band are on a hot streak after the release of their debut album, I Am Become, last year. Thanks, in part to Kevin Cole’s support of the band but, mostly, from the incredible music they make. Their take on atmospheric art-rock is something few are doing at the moment and they are doing it very very well.”
This show is part of Among Authors' national tour which includes a performance on NPR's Tiny Desk.
Metro to Paris - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Metro to Paris
Metro to Paris is four-piece band based out of Washington, DC/ NoVA. Members include Casey Wilkins on guitar and vocals, John Michael Rabil on piano, Garrett Henkle on bass, and Spencer Jessee on drums. Their debut LP is slated for release in Summer 2019.
Woodgrove - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Singing songs about ghosts and dead gods with a little too much poppy falsetto and nowhere near enough fuzz." That's how the Virginia-based band describes their sound. Loud and heavy, but with dynamic shifts that lead into a world of groove and ambiance. Woodgrove came into being, as did the genre ’Paxil Pop,’ after a long summer of introspection in 2016. After a number of solo shows, Virginia native Jared Hall (guitar/vox) was joined by Max (drums), Logan Leverett (guitar), and Jake Wentzel (bass) to move the band forward in a much heavier and all-encompassing direction. While Hall still plays solo shows with nothing but his suitcase drum, guitar, and voice, the full band has become the prime directive for the group. Focusing on a blend of ambience and groove, on polarizing songwriting and introspection, the four-piece welcomed the chaos that was 2017 by trying their best to play music as a coping mechanism.
