When: Sat., Oct. 15 2011
Savannah-based indie trio Cusses — drummer Brian Lackey, guitarist Bryan Harder, and singer Angel Bond — specialize in an intense, angular, sharp-toned, punkish style of art-rock. Riffy, edgy, and raw, the music also has a vintage funkiness to it. Cusses released a debut EP last year titled Thrust. The band just finished recording its first full-length album Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville with Dan Hannon (from Atlanta's Manchester Orchestra). Local trio Tickle Switch consists of lead guitarist/vocalist Mackie Boles, drummer Marshall Hudson, and bassist Bandi Tomascheck. Local indie band Wylie opens at 9:30 p.m.
