Revel in the sweet reverb of Futurebirds' folk-rock and alt-country-tinged tunes this Thursday night at 9:30 Club!
Futurebirds hail from Athens, GA, the musical city also home to psych rock weirdos of Montreal. Speaking of Athens' diverse music scene, Futurebirds guitarist Thomas Johnson says, "It’s encouraged in the Athens music scene to do something that pushes the limits a little bit. Or to do something that someone else hasn’t really done, and create your own sound." And create their own sound they did. The bands' six members came together, along with their slew of instruments - acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, banjo, and mandolin - to create two EPs and two full-length albums since 2008. Hampton Lullaby, Futurebirds' debut LP, was released in 2010 with the sophomore follow-up Baba Yaga released earlier this year on Fat Possum Records. In the past five years, Futurebirds have shared the stage with such renowned acts as Drive-By Truckers and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
