Roshambeaux at Green Bar
Green Bar – Doors: 8:00pm Music: 10:30pm FREE SHOW Ages 19+ Roshambeaux: The truth is we're not like everybody else. We break a lot of rules and do things our own way. We're a big, rowdy modern electronically twisted rock duo that doesn't sound like anybody else even though they'd like us to say we're just like 21 Pilots, The Black Keys, Royal Blood or even The White Stripes. We're based in Atlanta, GA. We tour big cities and small towns in the Southeast and Midwest United States and treat them all the same because the only thing that matters are the people. We don't have "real jobs," because when we met in 2010 we decided that you can make what you love a job and that's what's "real." We have an album called "Illuminaughty," and we're super proud of it. We're in the studio working on our next release in between tour dates and we are confident it will be the best thing we've done thus far. We don't have an agenda. We just want you to have an experience. Kyle Iconic- Guitarz & Vocal Stylez J-Rock- Beatz, Groovez, & Machinez

Seeds? at Green Bar!
Green Bar – Doors: 8:00pm Music: 10:30pm FREE SHOW Ages 19+ Seeds? Seeds? is a sonic experience unlike any other, designed to pilot listeners on a journey through sound, color, and emotion to evoke a sense of inspiration within them. Blending elements of a variety of genres from Funk to Reggae to Lounge music, Seeds? brings a sound and vibration that is surprisingly unique and is truly recognizable amidst a sea of predictable electronic music. Seeds? employs live guitar embellished with a healthy dose of improvisation as a foundation for musical creation, so the approach used to manifest soundscapes is a bit more unique than the average musical architect. Live instrumentation is something Seeds? believes should be more sought after in electronic music, and is extremely underutilized in the electronic music side of the industry today. The messages behind the music of Seeds? are meant to inspire the listener to seek their individual calling in life, and not settle for anything less than their true potential as a human being. We are the only self-aware organism on this planet, so why believe we must settle for mundane tasks that inhibit creation and expression within us? We can work together to create a society that is no longer volatile when it comes to human potential, but instead, fosters it. We should create an environment that is truly conducive to creative expression and the celebration of individuality, color, and one's own individual pursuit of happiness, and Seeds? believes positive music is the perfect foundation for a society of that nature. ?You might still be asking, “So what is Seeds?”??We are all Seeds: Seeds of Creation.

Renshaw Davies w/ Wilder Adkins at Green Bar
Green Bar – Doors: 8:00pm Music: 10:30pm FREE SHOW Ages 19+ Renshaw Davies: Renshaw Davies is a new roots/ folk duo based in New Orleans, Louisiana, comprised of John Renshaw (vocals, guitar) and Emily Davies (vocals, light percussion). They draw influences from the fused harmonies of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, the desert air of Fleetwood Mac, Shovels and Rope’s sweet and wild abandon, Bob Dylan’s raw poetry, and the acerbic wit of Father John Misty. Wilder Adkins: Wilder Adkins’ songwriting gleans as much from the earthy poetry of Wendell Berry and Mary Oliver as it does from the works of folk luminaries Richard Thompson and Bruce Cockburn. He’s a true theosophical spirit, arrestingly taciturn, but possessed of startling guitar skills, a wit as dry as October leaves, and a tremulous, dented voice that’s frankly mesmerizing. His courtly-but-witty lyrics evoke a Deep South Shelley or Yeats, riding a joyful guitar dexterity. Adkins hails from Marietta, GA, but now lives and writes in Birmingham, AL. He grew up listening to his dad play renditions of Neil Young and Van Morrison songs on an old Guild Jumbo Acoustic. Some time spent in India helped to expand his melodic sense and also provided a chance to learn Hindi. Adkins’ songs, steeped in natural imagery, frequently touch upon the subjects of faith, doubt, and as the title of his new album would indicate, hope and sorrow.

Early writing and recording culminated in the summer of 2015 with the band’s independently released EP “Days and Nights”.

The band was named “Best Emerging Artist” at the 2016 Big Easy Awards in their home town of New Orleans. Motel Radio’s atmospheric, harmony-driven sound and unique dual frontmanarrangement garnered the attention of Roll Call Records, who released their EP ‘Desert Surf Films’ in September 2016.

Thompson Springs at Green Bar
Green Bar – Doors: 8:00pm Music: 10:30pm FREE SHOW Ages 19+ Thompson Springs: A collaborative side-project, Thompson Springs became an outlet for a backlog of songs Matt Smith gathered over the years. The band consists of a rotating crew who shaped his tunes into folk-rock gems whose casual valor and languid language convey an everyman’s candor that rocks gently and goes down easy. Produced by Rob Laakso of Kurt Vile and the Violators, the mini-collection of rambling self-reflection simmers in sing-along homilies and hitch-hiker’s poetry for a laid-back treatise that makes for a fine traveling companion on the winding road of life. As a taste of things to come, “Artifacts,” packs promising calm for uncertain journeys.
