Scowl Brow, Old Heavy Hands, Monkey Knife Fight &Good Good Grief
The Blue Eyed Muse – Scowl Brow & Old Heavy Hands w/ Monkey!Knife!Fight! & Good Good Grief Friday, 28 July Doors 8pm // Show 9pm Scowl Brow https://scowlbrow.bandcamp.com Old Heavy Hands https://oldheavyhands.bandcamp.com Tickets Available: themusewilmington.com SCOWL BROW Bio: Scowl Brow has made a name across the Southeast as a band that can transform any room into an instant party. Having self-released an LP in 2013 and an EP the following year, the Charlotte, NC based trio signed with Refresh Records with plans to record a new album. This past October, Scowl Brow’s debut LP was re-released on Refresh Records, having been remixed by engineer Mike Pepe (Taking Back Sunday, Modern Chemistry) and remastered by Dave Harris at Studio B Mastering (Kylesa, ANTiSEEN, Bombadil). The LP features a previously unreleased bonus track, “In The Papers,” and brings the album to vinyl for the first time. The band recently welcomed a second guitarist, Rick Contes of Young And In The Way, and is preparing for a new LP in 2017. OLD HEAVY HANDS Bio They say appearances are everything, but in the case of North Carolina’s tattooing troubadours, Old Heavy Hands, appearance is a livelihood. The unassuming trio comprised of Nate Hall, Larry Wayne and David Self are crafting some of the finest southern music. Old Heavy Hands lives just as comfortably on the record shelf next to Willie Nelson or Neil Young as it does between Lucero and Wilco.

The Group have continued their commitment to fighting injustice, educating the masses, and promoting positive messages through spiritually uplifting music. “We just can’t ignore the politics, because every life and soul that’s born on this earth is a political manoeuvre for someone, at some stage”, Hinds explains. “From a spiritual aspect, it’s really an upliftment through facing reality – what’s out there. We deal with positive spirits. It means putting aside the guns, the drugs and all of the things that are ailments of society – especially the black communities right now”. STEEL PULSE have always taken their causes to heart, filing a $1 million class-action lawsuit against New York City’s Taxi & Limousine Commission. The group charged that cabbies refused to pick up blacks and Rastafarians throughout the streets of New York.
