Introducing WHISKEY SHIVERS, a must-watch band playing at the inaugural REVIVAL FEST in Savannah, Georgia on 9/14/2013
Introducing a “band to watch” of ACL Festival 2013 – BOBBY JEALOUSY – catch them on the Austin Ventures Stage on 10/5 at 11:15am.

We started out with a trip to the Community Records […]
The madness continued through Day Two at SXSW 2013 in Austin, Texas – Royal Canoe on a royal bus, watching Kendrick Lamar from outside, and finishing the day with three bands from Georgia!
The first day of SXSW was wonderfully chaotic for our writers. See what Everett and David have to say about their experience as newcomers to Austin’s largest music showcase!
