When: Sat., July 18 2009
Local rock trio Leslie — singer/guitarist Sadler Vaden, drummer Jonathan Carmen, and bassist Jason Fox — return to the Pour House stage in support of their latest, an EP titled The Rebel Souls. The band recorded the four songs on the new disc in Memphis with acclaimed studio producer Paul Ebersold — an engineer and musician known best for his work with such bands as Space Hog, 3 Doors Down, Saliva, and Sister Hazel. There are plenty of heroic choruses, grand power chords, Who-like build-ups, tasteful guitar and tambourine overdubs, and industrial-strength bass lines. Tent Revival opens in the main room. Local singer/guitarist Stratton Lawrence (of Po'Ridge) plays on the deck with accompaniment from vocalist Elise Tstone (of Emotive, The Freeloaders) for free at 5 p.m.
