Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth


Performs the Songs of David Bowie  


From Brixton to Blackstar


Aisle 5


1123 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307 


Saturday June 4th, 20169 PM $12 


Since 2012 the Atlanta-based Jerome Newton and Band Who Fell to Earth has paid homage to David Bowie and the Glam Rock era. With Bowie’s untimely passing, they find themselves called upon to celebrate the Man Who Fell to Earth. Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth plays selections from Bowie’s entire career, up to and including his final album, “Blackstar.”  They includes not only the well-known numbers like Space Oddity and Changes but also selected deeper tracks. Jerome Newton and Band Who Fell to Earth don’t actually try and emulate Bowie. Rather they give the material their own spin, staying close to the source but arranged to reflect their own style and influences.


The story so far: 


One night in 2012, a bunch of artsy, musician types were hanging out, discussing why they would never ever, play cover songs. Inevitably the subject turned to what exceptions might be made to this rule. Keyboardist Allen Welty-Green (veteran of various local prog and art rock bands) said he might consider playing something like Bowie - “you know, something that doesn’t suck!” Someone else said “my roommate vocalist Joe Sikes (formerly the singer of glammy electronica acts ODK and The Fabric) loves Bowie”. Soon the two of them got together, tried a few things out and said “what the hell, let’s make a band.” 


First on board was former sax man/singer Stan Satin from Atlanta punk legends Vietnam. Drummer Jim Dunn and guitarist Brian King, from the underground prog legends Lord Only, jumped in. Long time art-punk bassist Jeff Tyson filled out the band. Shows at galleries, parties, and clubs helped them fine tune their campy and energetic stage show. In 2014, percussionist/vocalist Meredith Greer (“The Chameleon Queen”) officially became part of the band. She had been a fixture of every Jerome Newton show from the beginning, adding her high energy vocal stylings, dance, and percussion to the mix - so making her a “real” band member was just a formality. Then in 2014, charter member Stan Satin departed the group for the land down under and sax man Brent Wilburn jumped in to take up the slack, and the beat goes on. 


With a body of work as rich and diverse as Bowie’s, and with as large of a fan base as Bowie has, Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth will be sharing their appreciation on stages in Atlanta and beyond for years to come.

WAXAHATCHEE
Allison Crutchfield
9pm | $15 | All Ages


Katie Crutchfield’s southern roots are undeniable. The name of her solo musical project Waxahatchee comes from a creek not far from her childhood home in Alabama and seems to represent both where she came from and where she’s going. Since leaving home, Crutchfield hasdrifted between New York and Philadelphia but chose to return to Alabama to write her first two albums: American Weekend, her debut filled with powerful lo-fi acoustic tracks full of lament, and Cerulean Salt, a more developed and solid narrative about growing up. Both are representations of a youthful struggle with unresolved issues and unrequited feelings.


Waxhatchee’s latest record, Ivy Tripp, drifts confidently from these previous albums and brings forth a more informed and powerful recognition of where Crutchfield has urrently found herself. The lament and grieving for her youth seem to have been replaced with control and sheer self-honesty. “My life has changed a lot in the last two years, and it’s been hard for me to process my feelings other than by writing songs,” says Crutchfield. “I think a running theme [of Ivy Tripp] is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming, or just being cognizant in moments of deep confusion or sadness, and learning to really feel emotions and to grow from that.”


Recorded and engineered by Kyle Gilbride of Wherever Audio at Crutchfield’s home on New York’s Long Island—with drums recorded in the gym of a local elementary school—Ivy Tripp presents a more developed and aged version of Waxahatchee. “The title Ivy Tripp is really just a term I made up for directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents. I have thought of it like this: Cerulean Salt is a solid and Ivy Tripp is a gas.”


Crutchfield is accompanied by both Gilbride and Keith Spencer on Ivy Tripp, and the record was produced by all three of them. With the addition of more guitar work, piano, drum machines, and Crutchfield’s vocals in full bloom, we are given a record that feels more emphatic and pronounced. Ivy Tripp opens with “Breathless,” filled with only a distorted keyboard and layers of vocals, showcasing Waxahatchee’s pension for quiet, personal reflection. The record then opens up into “Under a Rock,” a quicker guitar-driven song that lays the foundation for the rest of the album, which as a whole resonates with strong, self-aware lyrics, energetic ballads, and powerfully hushed moments of solitude. Crutchfield’s voice is certainly the guiding force behind Ivy Tripp—commanding and voluminous in the rock song “Poison,” candied and pure in the frolicking “La Loose”—gripping you tightly and then softly releasing you into the wilds of emotion.


As far as her goals with Ivy Tripp, Crutchfield says, “I heard someone say that you have to be the change you want to see. I just want to be the kind of musician I want to see in the world. I want to present myself in a way that reflects that.”

ASA x Sorrow

Presented by: Together At Last & Full Circle Presents
On sale: Friday May 13th 10:00 AM
Tickets: $10 Advance // All Ages

ASA
Hailing from Bristol, UK, Asa’s unique combination of narrative and evocative song-writing and dancefloor-ready bass music has seen him establish himself as one of the most inspired British artists of his generation. With over a decade of experience of gigging and releasing music since his teenage years, his worldwide fan base has expanded over the years: to the point that his music uploads now accrue millions of plays via YouTube and other popular streaming platforms, while offline his sell-out shows unite dense audiences for hours at a time, and his tracks and remixes are broadcast across the airwaves on BBC and other mainstream radio channels (by Mista Jam, Mary AnneHobbs, Zane Lowe et al.). A prime and current example of the populardemand for Asa’s music and its outreach across the airwaves would be his extended guest mix for BBC Radio 1 Bass music aficionado, Logan Sama for his eponymous show. Asa’s name whets the appetites of Bass music and Grime fans everywhere, being synonymous with the highest production values, progressive musical innovation, and – moreover – the contemporary revival of the Grime genre itself.


 


Sorrow
Birmingham born now Bristol-based Sorrow is an artist of whom many UK garage music lovers may have heard. His debut musical adventure was revealed in 2011, when he announced the release of his first E.P on L2S Recordings and has since released his well-received debut album ‘Dreamstone’ with Monotreme Records to the eager public. Working very closely with fellow musician Asa, the duo have made efforts to rejuvenate the grime scene with their fresh twist on the sound, gaining support from acclaimed producers along the way and securing remixes on their fellow Bristonian Joker’s imprint, Kapsize. Whatever the genre, Sorrow champions his versatility to adapt to the ever evolving electronic music scene, never refusing to elaborate on his already recognizable production style and breaking down the boundaries of genre pigeonholing.

Raised in Detroit and molded in Chicago, producer, emcee, and co-founder of The Cool Kids, Chuck Inglish, continues to mix the melting pot of hip-hop as he collaborates with a wide variety of artists across the industry. After teaming up with Sir Michael Rocks in 2007 to found the game-changing alternative hip hop duo, The Cool Kids, Inglish went on to tour the globe over, and crafted a pioneering sound that shook the foundations of hip-hop and rap.


Between 2007 and 2012, Inglish produced two studio albums and four self-released mixtapes with Rocks as The Cool Kids. The duo’s blend of retro rap and their fresh sense of style are reminiscent of Golden Age hip-hop, an era celebrated for its innovation and influence. As The Cool Kids, Inglish and Rocks have helped to shape the current digital music landscape and continue to inspire an entire generation of young, indie-alternative artists.


In 2013, Inglish released two instrumental beat tapes and his debut solo mixtape,Droptops. In April 2014, Inglish co-produced and released his first studio album,Convertibles. The 13-track project featured collaborations with artists such as Cool Kidsmember, Sir Michael Rocks, as well as Chance the Rapper, Chromeo, Action Bronson, BJ the Chicago Kid, Ab-Soul, and Mac Miller. The album received as much street cred and underground success as it did critical acclaim around the world; UK's Q Magazine called the album compelling, with its "buttery rhymes and an ability to zero in on your rhythmic G-spots."


Today, Inglish is seen as an independent and unapologetic force in hip-hop, and an elder statesman for the forthcoming internet rap generation. Being a leader of the New School, he continues to work with young and aspiring artists, helping them to develop their own industry flavor.


In 2015, Inglish put the final touches on his record label, Sounds Like Fun Records. He also produced new material in anticipation of his second studio album, the aptly named Everybody’s Big Brother, which was released in September 2015. “I wanted to name my album something that meant something—what do I represent? Who am I to the world? What have I always been?” Inglish explained in an interview with Fader,earlier this year. “And through this phase of years that I’ve taken to redevelop and redefine what I am, I realized that’s what I’ve been.”


Since his Cool Kids days in the mid 2000s, Inglish’s solo work has risen far above the digital landscape, crossing over into pop, funk and electronica. Meanwhile his label,Sounds Like Fun Records, also continues to soar and diversify as Inglish develops his roster further. As a producer, Inglish has expanded to work with diverse artists such as Maroon 5, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Syd The Kid, Casey Veggies, Chance The Rapper, QUIN and Yasmin, among many others.


Inglish currently lives, raps, produces, DJs and hosts jam-packed parties out of Los Angeles. His weekly jam, Age Sex Location, consistently rocks Downtown LA every Wednesday, featuring a variety of regular guests (including J*Davey, Asher Roth, Budgie and Orange Calderon) and Inglish himself on the 1s and 2s. Most recently, Inglish won the Global Spin Awards’ "2015 Regional Open Format Club DJ of the Year (Midwest)".

Underground System
The Dangerfeel Newbies
Daz I-Kue

$10 / All Ages / 9pm

Underground System


Underground System came bubbling up out of BKNY in early 2010. Originally steeped in influence and inspiration credited to Fela Kuti and the West African pioneered Afrobeat aesthetic, they have since carved out a niche that stands uniquely alone as their own. With several successful 12” single releases behind them


via Ropeadope Records and Hell Yeah (Italy) and a noteworthy touring schedule to back it up (featured appearances at Burlington Jazz Fest, Bear Creak Music & Arts, Brooklyn Museum, Museum of Natural History), this forward thinking and diverse group has laid all the groundwork and is ready to aim the big guns- bringing their uncompromising and original New York bred style to a soundsystem near you.

 


For Underground System, their recent single release “Bella Ciao” (Out February 2014 on Ropeadope Records) is the first taste of what’s to come. A menagerie of the best kind – part baile funk MCing, part italian folk song, part afrobeat anthem – starting somewhere modern, dark, and latenight club friendly, bringing it back just in time to a bouncy and deceptively light feel, the whole while grounded in the timeless sensibility and authority of a killer live band. Set to music by founder Peter Matson and frontwoman Domenica Fossati and given life by the bands collective work in arrangement, the ever-evolving personalities and influences on this record shine brighter than ever.

No one can deny the groups power and ability to package so many disparate influences with a unifying voice, and they owe a lot to the physical presence of what is one of the most diverse and dynamic crews of players to be assembled on the ground in NYC for a long time.  A few phone calls and some chance meetings set the stage early on for where they are today: 8 core members deep, split equally between gender, representing too many cultural backgrounds to list, and boasting one of the most naturally enthralling live shows around. The energy the band exudes is confident, raw, and uninhibited, engaging and inviting every audience to lose themselves in the moment. The female front line is unique in its own rite and flips the script on the stereotypical male dominated afrobeat and big band culture in a perfectly nonchalant way. No marketing ploys or calculations here, the group organically evolved and ended up this way, a true reflection of the ideals it puts forward in every performance; the music created speaks for itself.

The Dangerfeel Newbies:

Inspired by the story of Dangerfield Newby, one of five African-Americans in the John Brown party, this Atlanta-based trio delivers a set that is deeply rooted in blues, jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, house; pretty much the American musical spectrum. Formed by DJ's Jamal Ahmad and Mark Angel and keyboardist/musician Darren "DJ" Wagner, the mission was to create a sound that encapsulated a soulful and well-rounded listening experience. Featuring the talent of countless musicians and the vocal stylings of singer/songwriter's J' Piccola, Mashan Da'Lyric and Julie Dexter, their debut "Hariet", which is available now (ITunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, Spoify) can best be described as a "groove gumbo". Member Jamal Ahmad, says that "the mission was to dig deep inside and pull out all of our most personal influences. No matter if it's hip-hop like A Tribe Called Quest or house music in the Master At Work vein: we wanted to create a warm. personal sound".

Black Milk


Born and raised in Detroit on the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, Curtis Cross found out at an early age that he had a talent for hip-hop, especially for beats. He spent hours in his basement -- at first with just a cheap drum machine and a home karaoke system, eventually moving up to more sophisticated MPCs and samplers -- making tapes. One of these tapes got into the hands of fellow DetroitersSlum Village, who were impressed by what they heard and invited Cross to produce a track on their 2002 mixtape Dirty District, as well as on their official full-length Trinity (Past, Present and Future). After that, Cross, who was going asBlack Milk, teamed up with producer RJ Rice, Jr. (or Young RJ) as the group B.R. Gunna, rhyming and making beats on the duo's 2004 release Dirty District, Vol. 2. That same year, Slum Village, who were looking for production work because usual beatmakers Waajeed and Kareem Riggins were busy with other projects, hired B.R. Gunna for 11 of the 13 tracks on their Detroit Deli LP.


In 2005, without a label and with his group on hiatus, Black Milk went on to release Sound of the City, which was more of a mixtape than a typical album, on his own Music House Records, and shortly thereafter worked on SV's self-titled record. By this time, indie rap label Fat Beats had heardBlack Milk's work, which many compared to that of the late J Dilla and producer/MC Madlib; impressed, the label signed him in 2006 and issued his official solo debut, Popular Demand, in March of 2007. Late that same year, a jointBishop Lamont/Black Milk tape, mixed by DJ Warrior, hit the streets, a slightly modified version of which was mastered and released commercially by Music House early in 2008, and just a few months later his collaboration with fellow Detroiter Fat Ray, The Set Up, came out. In October, he capped off the productive year with the release of his second official solo album, Tronic. He worked with a four-piece live band for 2010'sAlbum of the Year, a heavily rock-influenced effort that featured guest artists Royce da 5'9" and eLZhi. His 2013 effort, No Poison No Paradise, returned to electronic and hip-hop sounds and featured the single "Sunday's Best." If There's a Hell Below followed in 2014, with Bun B and Pete Rock among its guests.

Frameworks

‘Tides’ is the debut album from Manchester-based producer Matt Brewer aka Frameworks. Since the release of his first EP ‘Vanish’ back in 2012, Frameworks has been building a loyal following for his atmospheric and haunting compositions. ‘Tides’ sees him joining the dots between instrumental hip hop heroes Aim and RJD2, the epic soundscapes of Cinematic Orchestra and the deft songwriting of Bonobo.



Previous collaborators Rioghnach Connolly and JP Cooper return for the album with two tracks apiece. Rioghnach gives a captivating vocal performance on lead single ‘Calm The Still Night’ and the brooding ‘Dawn’, whilst JP (recently signed to Island Records) brings raw soul to ‘Old Friend’ and ‘No Place To Hide Away’.


The bedrock of the album is instrumental with Frameworks’ trademark string-laden productions taking in cinematic jazz (‘Patience’), folk (‘End’) and more uptempo fare in the shape of ‘Breathing Light’ and ‘A New Sun’. Tides’ shows just how accomplished Frameworks is as a producer and composer, showing a lightness of touch and genuine song-writing talent that few can emulate.



 


Mux Mool


Mux Mool didn’t set out to throw critics into a head-scratching tizzy—he just makes what sounds right. Jagged broken beats slip-slide across circuit-bent, pitch-shifted synths in a dystopian wasteland of 90’s nostalgia. The Mux Mool arsenal is a moody collection of instrumental dynamism vacillating between the serious and the silly.



Cutting his teeth on compilations for Moodgadget and Ghostly International, Lindgren found his audience amongst the neo-nerd ne’er-do-wells raised on junk food, taurine, and Adult Swim bumps. In a country steeped in pop and technology, a music geek with computer knowhow and cheap keyboards smashed the gatekeeper model with sonic sketches that went viral. His early work slipped onto “best of” lists in the mid-2000’s alongside fellow Swim alum Flying Lotus. Two Drum EPs and two full-lengths (2010’s Skulltaste and 2012’s Planet High School) cemented his Ghostly standing among the crate-digging elitists of the hip-hop world, but the nascent bass music movement latched onto the nomadic beatsmith, aligning him with the wonkier, brainier echelon of producers.


Brian Lindgren has been on the move from the beginning, hitting classy corners of happening neighborhoods, from Minneapolis to Brooklyn to Ann Arbor—dipping his toe into each burgeoning metro area, and soaking in the creativity that emanates from a scene on the rise. Relocating to Denver, Colorado, the epicenter of all things electronic, Lindgren is hitting his stride in time with the city that now more than ever towers above the landscape of the entire industry.


Now exposed to a vastly different audience of post-adolescent sub addicts, Lindgren didn’t tune in, turn off, and sell out; rather, the cerebral subsonic alignment of his body of work put him right in the crosshairs of tastemakers who heard whispers of his name all along. The kids just get it. The Mux Mool catalog is a hand-me-down from the older brothers of the scene, outlining where we are and where we’re going.

Big Business started as a two piece band composed of Jared Warren of Karp and The Tight Bros From Way Back When, and Coady Willis of Murder City Devils. Their sound has been characterized as a bombastic and frantic low end attack, marked by Warren's signature vocal delivery. The band released its first album, "Head for the Shallow", on January 25, 2005.

In late 2006, after relocating to Los Angeles, Jared and Coady both became members of The Melvins, first appearing on "(A) Senile Animal". The tour, titled "the Double-Drumming Rock for Peace tour", featured Warren and Willis playing a set as Big Business before being joined by Crover and Osborne for a set as the Melvins. While on tour, Big Business played with David Scott Stone who would later play guitar and Minimoog Voyager on all songs from their 2007 release "Here Come the Waterworks".

After releasing Here Come the Waterworks to critical acclaim, Big Business was given an opening spot on the summer leg of the Tool tour. Toshi Kasai played guitar for Big Business throughout this tour.

After the fall US tour ended, Big Business started recording material for the new Melvins album, entitled "Nude With Boots", which was released on July 8, 2008.

On March 9, 2008 Toshi Kasai was introduced onstage as the third member of Big Business. Both the band and Toshi verified this on their respective Myspace pages. Big Business released their third album "Mind the Drift" on May 12, 2009. The album, produced by Phil Ek, who has produced both of their previous albums.[1] was given a "pre-release" preview at the websitehttp://mindthedrift.com/

In October, 2010 after a year of not playing shows, they posted on their myspace that they had added another guitarist Scott Martin (400 Blows, Crom), officially making them a "Power Quartet".

Anna Wise is a Grammy winning singer, songwriter, and performer based in Brooklyn, NY. Anna has garnered a dedicated following amongst musicians and music fans alike ever since her collaborations with Kendrick Lamar on good kid, m.A.A.d city (“Real,” “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Money Trees”) and To Pimp a Butterfly (“These Walls,” “Institutionalized”). Their song “These Walls” won the Grammy award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2016 Grammy’s.

Anna also performs alongside her band, Sonnymoon, with whom she has released three albums, Golden Age, Sonnymoon, and The Courage of Present Times. Anna has shared the stage with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kimbra, The Roots, Givers, Flying Lotus, Bilal, Teebs, Tei Shi, and more.

Anna’s first EP, The Feminine: Act I, is now available for purchase and streaming online.

 

RBTS WIN is Javier Bolea and Cliff B. Worsham - a sample-based/psych-pop production duo heavily influenced by the sounds of soul and R&B. The band is known for their emotionally charged live performances using a feast of analog synthesizers, drum machines, guitars and vocals. The music they create has also been described as dark wave or chill-hop.

The group formed in 2008 shortly after Javier moved from his hometown of sun-drenched Miami, FL to the mountain oasis of Cliff's origins in Asheville, NC. After meeting through mutual friends the two quickly began exchanging song ideas and found that they had a special musical relationship. Javier speaks on their chemistry: "I feel like the juxtaposition of our worlds has everything to do with our sound and the energy we put out. The tropical beaches and these mystical mountains have truly met halfway within these creations."

As much as their new album Palm Sunday eschews formula or convention, there are themes (love, spirit, connection, nature) throughout, along with musical references to the natural world — as filtered through electronic instruments. The album is the band’s most fully-realized effort to date, a culmination of years of experimentation, personal growth, deepening friendship and an unrelenting exploration of melody, beats and words.

Palm Sunday was recorded in Asheville, NC at Tidal Prism Studio and the converted cathedral, Echo Mountain. The cover was designed by long-time RBTS collaborator Kent Hernandez.

The band has played with the likes of Toro y Moi, Future Islands, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Prefuse 73, Nite Jewel, Lazer Sword, Mount Kimbie, Blue Sky Black Death, Tanlines, MillionYoung, The Sounds, Marley Carroll, Foreign Exchange, Otto Von Schirach, Polyphonic & Serengeti and Foxy Shazam. They have also performed at Miami’s Winter Music Conference, Hopscotch Festival and Moogfest 2010, 2012 & 2014.

 

10th Letter

Jeremi Johnson, also known as 10th Letter is an experimental, multi genre musician who resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Over the years Jeremi has released a number of albums as 10th Letter and has continued to push his live experience forward with each performance. 10th Letter has long been contributing to the now global beat culture; as well as pushing other avenues of sound and art along his journey.

His music is influenced by a variety of styles from J Dilla inspired hip-hop beats, melodic bass, house and even blues and swing. The diverse elements of his music are tied together with Esseks’ subtle but instantly recognizable sonic landscape


Sayer


Sayer has spent his entire life creating and evolving from music. Heavily influenced by his punk and metal background, he’s carved out his own space between bass, trap, and grime in the electronic landscape, making some of the most unique dance music coming out of the west coast. With a large catalog of heavy hitters to be released in 2016, he is a force threatening building foundations, startling nearby pets and causing dance floor feet to move uncontrollably.

CloZee


Hailing from Toulouse, CloZee is Chloé, a young music producer who seamlessly combines technical precision with a wild imagination. An accomplished instrumentalist, she began playing the classical guitar at 11. Influenced by edIT, Bonobo, The Widdler and Amon Tobin, she started producing electronic music at the age of 16.


In 2014, she won the 'Best International Newcomer of 2013' at the UK Glitch-Hop Award.

Her tracks defy genres, oscillating between Glitch-Hop, Trip-Hop, Future Bass and World Bass. She created her own place in the glitch community, thanks to a unique, highly surprising style mixing powerful basslines, funky off beat percussion, world instruments and emotional cinematic sounds. Her recent track ‘Koto’ (Otodayo Records) is about to reach 900k plays on Soundcloud in 6 months, and already more than a million views on YouTube in only 2 months.
A musical identity which led her to play in the USA (more than 45 dates in 2014/2015, including the festivals Coachella, Camp Bisco, Sonic Bloom, Enchanted Forest, Farm Fest…) but also in Canada, India, Germany, Ukraine, and more than 30 different cities in France, alongside artists like Bonobo, Gramatik, Chet Faker, Pretty Lights, TOKiMONSTA, Tipper, GRiZ, Phutureprimitive, Big Gigantic, Papadosio, Stwo…

Runner-up of several remix contests (launched by artists Mr. Bill, Asian Trash Boy, Crazy Daylight, Daenine...), CloZee was spotted by respected labels such as Gravitas Recordings, Glitch Hop Community, Otodayo Records, Adapted Records, Digital Whomp…

The Suffers are Houston's award-winning 10-piece ensemble that have redefined the sound of Gulf Coast Soul. Established in 2011, The Suffers’ lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo, guitarist Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose “Chapy” Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora. Jazz saxophonist Cory Wilson and guitarist/vocalist Alex Zamora filled out the rhythm section, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals. Last year brought the band to new heights, as they played 150+ shows across North America, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, and made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman. This year, the band officially released their much anticipated self-titled album in February and performed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Suffers have quickly progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at notable festivals and events, while remaining a local Houston favorite, accepting 20 Houston Press Music Awards in the last three years. The Suffers’ album is now available on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify. For further information on The Suffers, please visit:www.thesuffers.com.
