Folklore: Home Church Road

FOLKLORE_HCR

I’m playing trumpet with FOLKLORE tonight at The Caledonia, here in Athens…it’s an ALBUM RELEASE PARTY of sorts, to celebrate our new album, HOME CHURCH ROAD, coming out June 21st on Philly’s SINGLE GIRL MARRIED GIRL RECORDS. This is a special and rare appearance, since our band leader, Jimmy Hughes (Elf Power, Fairmount Fair), moved to Philadelphia last year, and started a Philly version of the band. He’s visiting long enough for us to throw together the Athens version of Folklore back together and put on a show. For more info on tonight’s show, go HERE….and for more information on the new record (yes, I play on it!), please visit the Single Girl, Married Girl website HERE….and for more information on Folklore the band, visit our webpage HERE.

Come say “Hi!” and hang out with us, Athens!

Folklore At The Earl

FOLKLORE 8836
(clever marketing on the pegboard behind the merch table)

Here are some images from last night’s MEGA FOLKLORE show at THE EARL in East Atlanta…the show was o.k., considering that we were sandwiched in between two very polished, “radio friendly”, bands. Needless to say, we stuck out like a sore thumb. At one point during our set some yuppie frat dude heckled us by yelling out “SMOKE A JOINT!” after a particularly psychedelic jammy jam, which we thought was pretty funny. Like, why state the obvious?

Anyways, you’re going to need to take a nap this evening before coming out to Folklore tonight…we’ll be playing an all-ages show at BEN’S BIKES tonight, with Sugar D, Werewolves, and Titans Of Filth…and it’s totally FREE! I think things start around 10pm (which means, 11pm in “Athens Time”). I believe Ben’s Bikes is located behind and below Southern Video, an “adult entertainment” store on Broad Street – but don’t let that scare you! You can click HERE for more info and to see how cool the space actually is…

More Folklore

FOLKLORE 8808

Last night’s MEGA FOLKLORE show at the CALEDONIA in downtown Athens was a lot of fun…despite the club not having a current liquor license (and thus, not allowed to sell alcohol), a nice crowd of people were there to show us the love. Best of all was perfectly combining the Northern and Southern versions of FOLKLORE into one giant band. It could have been a hot mess, but we sounded so good that you wouldn’t have known that we all only practiced together ONCE, just a couple of hours before the show. These are just a few images I was able to take while standing on stage, in between songs or in between trumpet parts…

TONIGHT (Saturday), we rock THE EARL in Atlanta, Georgia. We’ll be playing with TRAVEL BY TRAIN, and NIGHT DRIVING IN SMALL TOWNS…for more info, click HERE. If you’re hurtin’ for something to do in the ATL tonight then come on down, knock back a few drinks, and enjoy some good music…
