People's Blues Of Richmond

People’s Blues of Richmond (or PBR as they are affectionately referred to by their fans) is one of those rare three-pieces that somehow conjures the sonic power and visual intensity of a thunderstorm. Think Jimi Hendrix Experience meets MC5. They take psychedelic blues rock to a different level with a lyrical element seldom found in the genre. Think Bob Dylan writing lyrics for Black Sabbath songs. It’s hard to imagine until it’s right in your face. Then it’s hard to forget. Their 2016 12-song release “Quit or Die” showcased a travel-hardened band at a crossroads. With drugs taking their inevitable toll on three young men on an endless search for a good time, this trio had a choice to make and “Quit or Die” is a declaration of their purpose as artists above all else. They received praise from Relix, Paste, Guitar World, AfroPunk, and many others as 3/4 of the album was released as critically acclaimed singles and the tour schedule filled up quickly. In the two years since, they’ve found themselves opening for Gregg Allman, ZZ Top, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Revivalists, and Papadosio and playing venues like Red Rocks, 3 sets at Electric Forest, 2 appearances at Lockn, The Brooklyn Bowl, The National, and The Norva. Before “Quit or Die”, PBR had a cult following built around their album “Good Time Suicide”. It was a big, dark, manic sounding album full of in-your-face riffs and gut-wrenching song writing. It was followed shortly thereafter by the trio heading to Valdosta, GA to meet and record with Mark Neill (who recorded one of their favorite albums, ‘Brothers’ by The Black Keys). They did two songs with Mark and learned a lot about recording that they put to use when they returned home to Richmond to record ‘Quit or Die’. They are currently working on their next album release and touring constantly so keep an eye and an ear out for when the storm rolls through and don’t miss the wildest show on wheels when it comes to your town!

AFTM

Since AFTM started back in the spring of 2017 as a southern rock band playing University of Georgia fraternity parties and bars around Athens, Georgia, the 6 piece unit has developed themselves into a band with a sound that you can’t quite put your finger on. Forrest Whitlark (Vocals), John MacLane (Bass Guitar) and Will MacLane (Rhythm Guitar), the original members of the band, began playing music together in their early childhood. The trio then brought their talents to Athens, GA, where they would recruit John Cherry (Keys) and Kelly Bouchillon (Lead Guitar) in the fall of 2017, and then Cam Corsino (Drums) in the spring of 2018. While some members derive their influence from indie rock and blues, others pull inspiration from classic rock, jazz, and metal, creating a unique blend of their own cohesive and eclectic sound. AFTM has quickly gained success as well as a significant following playing festivals and selling out venues in the southeast. Their shows are highly energetic, exciting, and a one of a kind experience.
