Fields of Mars
Every Local Band Local Beer in July brought something new and the July 31st show was no exception.
Cat Be Damned(first photo) started off the night. Typically a full band, only one member was performing tonight. While simple with only vocals and a guitar, the lyrics were fun and catchy.
Following up was another solo act, TOW3RS(middle two photos). TOW3RS put on a dramatic and well rehearsed performance. This guy has got some dance moves! I look forward to seeing his Hopscotch performance as he will be performing with a full band.
Wesley Wolf(bottom three photos) brought the rock to an otherwise tranquil night.
A special thanks to French Broad Brewery and Lazer Dan for all the delicious samples provided in July!
Headbangingtastic was this week’s Local Band Local beer at Tir na Nog.
The Hello No(lower half of the photos) really kicked off the night. A strong female vocalist powered over the super tight instruments. Noodles, the lead guitarist, completely melted my face with his solos.
Absent Lovers(top half of the photos) played amazingly tight, too. You could sense the influence of Rush, Police, and similar bands in their style. They owned the stage and brought a lot of energy with songs about cyber-punk novels. Also, it was super cool seeing the Pour House/Neptunes door guy’s band. I’ve talked with him before while working a Double Barrel Benefit show and I could tell he was probably a killer guitarist. Was not disappointed one bit.
After being abroad for the Spring semester, last week’s LBLB was my first one of 2014, and it was the perfect re-introduction to what WKNC, Tir na Nog, and Raleigh has to offer.
The first act, Beauty World, was a great cello and guitar duo with a guest drummer towards the end. They created a soothing, yet energetic atmosphere that was emphasized by the cool blue lighting.
Once Curtis Eller took the stage, the party kicked into high gear as the unusual band composition of banjo, upright bass, trombone/accordion, drums, and two backup signers. The audience was moved to dance by songs about Abe Lincoln, Elvis Presley, and other American historical figures. This circus really knew how to bring the energy to this Irish pub.
Throw in a French Broad Brewery tasting that went on in the back and this Thursday night was complete.
