Summer’s almost over, so get down to Riverfront Nights
If you haven’t yet made it down to the 9th Annual Riverfront Nights series, this Saturday might just be the time to get down to (and on) the riverfront. North Carolina rockers BIG Something headline—and their 2013 self-titled album earned three “Album of the Year” awards.
The revered Bandcamp describes the group like this: “The band has crafted a powerful sound that is refreshingly original and yet classic in its approach.
In a digital age of popular music dominated by programmed computers, BIG Something is a breath of fresh air: a straight-up rock band that calls upon a diverse range of sounds created and performed live by six musicians on real instruments…the song craft is instantly recognizable with arena-sized rock grooves, dirty funk and dance rhythms layered with lush electronic embellishments and soulfully triumphant vocals.” Sounds like a party to us!
Opening act Travis Bowlin moved to Nashville two years ago, and self-describes his music career like this: “I’ve been singing since I was 11 years old. I’m now 25. It’s saved my life and as really helped me through the worst of times and the best. All during my teenage years—to early 20’s, I played music, wrote songs, and sang my heart out.” Bowlin’s working on his first EP, so be able to say you saw him when.
BIG Something, Travis Bowlin
