Looking for something to do Friday night? Come to the Radio Room for some independent rock n’ roll music provided by The Sea Wolf Mutiny, Elonzo, and Sunshone Still.
The Sea Wolf Mutiny comes from Columbia, South Carolina. They are an indie-folk band with an eccentric rock style. These guys know how to entertain by putting on a thrilling and different show.
Sunshone Still is another folk rock band with a slightly darker sound. Their songs are lined with classic 60’s style guitar, backed by haunting vocals.
Rockhill’s Elonzo will be playing at the Radio Room for the first time Friday. Their upcoming album promotes a rock n’ roll sound with a slight folk leaning pushing through with the harmonica. Lead singer, Jeremy Davis, was nice enough to do an interview with us to talk about the band and the upcoming album, Salt In The Wound. Flesh On The Bone.
Ashley Cooke: How long has Elonzo been together and how did it get started?
Jeremy Davis: We have been together since about 2008. We got started just by jamming together and going to open mics.
AC: Where would you say you pull inspiration from while writing music?
JD: My music is mostly autobiographical with some embellishment for fun. I should have been a fisherman.
AC: With a new album coming out sometime soon, do you plan to go on tour, if so, where? How will you celebrate/promote the new album?
JD: We are actually meeting tonight to start planning a tour for October. We will be coming to Greenville on that tour, as well as around the Carolinas and probably Georgia. We should be finished with our record here in the next month or two, and be ready to release it in the fall.
AC: What local band would you love to play a show with?
JD: We have played with Modern Man a few times. I really dig their stuff, even though our music is pretty different. I think its fun to put together bills with really different sounding bands. Whenever we have been a part of those kinds of shows, I think they generally are well received and more exciting.
AC: How do you prepare/get yourselves pumped for a show?
JD: I am pretty full of anxiety before shows, so I try to feed that feeling and channel it into my performance. I think it helps me block out whatever else is happening. Also, Taco Bell.
AC: Do you prefer hometown shows or away shows?
JD: We have some good friends around the Carolinas and at home, but it feels really good to be away from home and be a part of a good show. It feels like more of an accomplishment.
AC: What’s your favorite venue to play at?
JD: I’m pretty excited to be coming to the Radio Room honestly. It will be our first time there. I have heard lots of good things. We loved to play The Village Tavern before it closed in Charleston. They had great sound/soundman (Harrison Ray – www.reverbnation.com/harrisonray). In Charlotte though, there a quite a few cool clubs, I can’t really say. The Milestone for vibes, Snug Harbor for your bros, The Visulite to make you feel like a boss.
AC: If you could be any Star Wars character who would it be?
JD: Han Solo. We are both couriers by day, and he got the girl (respectfully).
