Nashville five-piece THE WEEKS really ripped us a new one when they headlined a show with SCOTT LUCAS & THE MARRIED MEN this past July and you can bet your ass we're fuggin' excited to welcome them back. The group's steadfast and earnest fierceness matches the intensity and purpose of their music, both live and on record. Originally hailing from Jackson, MS, THE WEEKS prides themselves on their tireless work ethic and extraordinary energy both on stage and in the studio. THE WEEKS recently released their new LP Dear Bo Jackson on Nashville-based Serpents and Snakes Records and the album expands on their trademark sludge-pop to meld Americana influences with classic flavors of soul, R&B, funk, and heavy boogie to forge their own unique take on contemporary Southern rock. Big brass, lush strings, masterful keys and twangy pedal steel have been fused into the band's greasy guitars, ragged vocals and highly charged rhythm section. Based in the sleepy, spooky town of Charleston, SC, HEYROCCO hit the Bottle with their seriously catchy but dark, nostalgic pop tuneage. Word has spread about their compelling, energetic live sets opening for bands like SURFER BLOOD, MUTEMATH and MINIATURE TIGERS. Their debut album will be out in early 2014, so look out for it. BUFFALO RODEO is an indie progressive rock band hailing from the hills of Bowling Green, KY. With punchy drums, melodic bass riffs, ethereal synths, elaborate guitar tones and addictive vocals, you can bet your ass they'll tantalize your eyes and ears.
