Bold Folly – Queen City Tuesday

Though Bold Folly is a relatively new venture, the trio hasn’t wasted any time when it comes to gigging regularly or cranking out their debut EP, Queen City Tuesday. The neatly packaged four song release offers a lot to hang onto upon first listen — fingerstyle-heavy guitar riffs, fuzzy bass lines, compelling chord changes.

Tonight: The Slums

October of last year bore exciting news that The Slums, buzzworthy post-hardcore four piece known for their dense and sludgy yet digestible sound, would be recording a full length album through Quiet Country Audio. If you’ve been following their #SlumDays video updates on the recording process at all, you might’ve seen the band joke about creating a “clean, small, very minimalistic”…

El Ten Eleven, an L.A.-based band who have been at it since 2002, are the humble giants of the post-rock world.
