June 23rd Concert Details:
Sydney Eloise & The Palms
Sydney Eloise & the Palms have released their critically acclaimed debut LP, Faces (available now on LP & CD from The Cottage Recording Co., and on cassette from Bear Kids Recordings). The new group also just received a glowing 4-star review from Creative Loafing, and has been compared by the music press to a stunning list of iconic artists and indie-press darlings including Jenny Lewis, Natalie Prass, George Harrison, Neko Case, Best Coast, Phil Spector and Fleetwood Mac. Sydney Eloise & The Palms embarked on their first tour this October with a bon-voyage hometown album-release show at Mass Collective in Atlanta, followed by a sprint up the East Coast, including a stopover at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York.
SUSTO is the brainchild of Justin Osborne – an alternative folk band infused with country and born from collaborations between Osborne and various colleagues in Charleston, South Carolina. In early 2013 Osborne began performing solo in South Carolina & Cuba under the name of SUSTO. By August of that year SUSTO was performing as a full band, with Osborne covering rhythm guitar, keyboards, and lead vocals, Taylor McCleskey on drums, Eric Mixon on bass and Johnny Delaware on lead guitar and background vocals. Since the band’s debut album release in early 2014, they maintain a moderate tour schedule and are rumored to be working on a new album.
