Desert Sharks | Kill the Druid | The Mitras | Asylum 213

Desert Sharks | Kill the Druid | The Mitras | Asylum 213

Brooklyn-based garage rock with punky and surfy vibes, as well as recent signees to Substitute Scene Records, Desert Sharks return to Richmond, VA to grace the city with a Thursday night of rock n' roll thrills and chills. Having spent years playing countless shows, hitting cities across the U.S. on tours, and maintaining a relentless DIY work ethic, the Sharks are an unstoppable force of lyrical passion, high-energy performance, and catchy riffs sure to make you dance up out of your seat! They are set to release their full-length debut in the Fall of 2019, but you can hear their newest single "crazycrazycrazy," from their June 24th, 2014-released EP, "Template Hair," along with many other surfy tunes, at the link below:

https://desertsharks.bandcamp.com/album/template-hair

Joining Desert Sharks at Garden Grove Brewing & Urban Winery are:

Asylum 213, an avant-garde, experimental, sonic-wonderland blend of ethereal vocals and instrumentals paired with moments of heavy rock and gritty, harsh guitar riffs. Typically a one-man solo act, having existed from as far back as 2010 and only playing out live under Asylum 213 from 2016, Dylan Lawson exhibits a unique blend of synthwave, darkwave, grunge, shoegaze, metal, alternative, pop, and prog rock in his writing style, along with being an amateur comedian the rest of the time. Asylum 213's most recent release, "November Blood," from November 10th, 2018 can be found on bandcamp at: https://asylum213.bandcamp.com/album/november-blood

Kill The Druid, a dazzling experimentation on post-rock/alternative, filled with enchanting vocals and melodies to boot. Kill The Druid put on quite the attention-grabbing show with their driving live performances and unexpected moments of instrument changes during as well. A wide-range of influences inspiring their music, Kill The Druid remain distinct and original in their writing and performance, and are sure to stick out with virtually any crowd they play for. You can get a feel for their sound by listening to their collection of demos and singles on their bandcamp: https://killthedruid.bandcamp.com/album/singles

and The Mitras, a fairly new, but well-seasoned 3-piece collective of lively musicians performing a mix of post-punk, garage rock, and grunge. From catchy choruses, to headbanger riffs, all the way to dancey beats, The Mitras are sure to get stuck in your head in no time, probably even enough to get you to come out to their next show and every one after! Word on the street is they do covers, too...incase you want to be that guy to jokingly request "Freebird," but then actually hear it played back to you! (Disclaimer: there is no guarantee they take requests or will actually play "Freebird" for you, and I think it's safe to say we're all okay with that!) With catchy, hooking originals and fun, familiar covers, The Mitras are definitely an upcoming, solid act you'll want to catch live and pay attention to. While it appears there is nothing studio-recorded to be found by them at the moment, you can hear a live performance (which honestly sounds good enough to BE studio-recorded, really) of their song "Sandpaper," from their performance at MAYO FEST 2019, right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZAs8VNEApI

More details, such as exact start time, finalized flier, and more TBA! Share the event around and come out and hear some good music by great people!

Volk (Nash) | Toward Space (RVA)

Lightning-charged duo VOLK is a Molotov cocktail of high-octane Rock & Roll and Honky-Tonking Country swagger. Their live performances explode with Chris Lowe's (TX, guitar) and Eleot Reich's (CA, drums) Motor City energy and Nashvegas pageantry. They boast musical influences ranging from the Carter Family to Little Richard to Buck Owens to ACDC. VOLK is loud suits and loud amps, shiny dresses and shiny drum sets; it’s growling tones and thunderous beats; VOLK is Rock & Roll, Country-Fried.

Rock N Roll/Power Pop

Thomas Strayhorn
Jul

8:00 PM20:00

Thomas Strayhorn

“His simple melodies draw from folk but veer toward alt-country, likely thanks to Strayhorn’s brassy twang. They’re adorned with little more than bare-bones arrangements (think: Joe Pug or Langhorne Slim). But Strayhorn’s songs tell stories that unfold poetically and genuinely...”
— PATRICK WALL (INDYWEEK)

Thomas Strayhorn is a singer/songwriter based in Durham, NC who writes simple songs with a serious connection to sense of place. He moved from his home in North Carolina to Denver, Colorado in 2016 where he played the occasional house concert and open mic night. His stint in Colorado was short lived, making his way back to North Carolina in late 2017 to focus on his music. While living in Colorado, he wrote many of the songs that he went on to record with James Phillips of Bombadil in early 2018. These songs focus heavily on sense of place — while he was living out west, Thomas realized how important the musical culture of the South East was to him. This is clearly evident in songs such as “The Man That I Am” and “Back East”. Another theme evident in these songs is his sexuality. While in college, Thomas steered clear of writing songs that outed him as a gay man. Now, however, he writes clearly about relationships with other men in songs such as “A Little More Proud” and “Gone in the Morning”. He feels that transparency in his writing will ultimately make his songs more compelling, and he wants to connect to LGBTQ audiences that don’t often see relatable themes of sexuality in songwriting. This batch of songs, which will be released in two separate EPs in 2019, boast simple yet compelling lyrics that are primarily driven by acoustic guitar, piano, and vocal harmonies.
