The Outervention w/ Bully, Pulpit, Savage Tongues, the Psychocrystarro 

When: Sat., Jan. 25 2014

What: 

mellow gold, 5 p.m

Although Charleston’s the Outervention released an album last year — a summer-breezy collection of mellow gold pop called Mess Machine that’ll remind you a bit of Ween and Elliott Smith — singer-songwriter Jeff Kozelski and his bandmates are planing to unveil a new LP this summer. “We’ve been having a great time getting together and practicing new tunes. January is a great time for that,” Kozelski says. “We’ve already put together about 10 tunes, and we’ve started the studio process.” While Kozelski is proud of last year’s LP, the tunes just aren’t representative of today’s Outervention. Band members have moved on, and others have joined. “It was a race to get it out, so we could move on. Some of the songs on Mess Machine were written in the early 2000s,” he says. “We’re glad it’s out floating in the universe.” Well, we’re glad it’s out there too, and we look forward to what Kozelski and company have planned next. —Chris Haire SATURDAY
