Kicking off the 2015 Bedrock 66 Live! series is Athens, GA country-folk psychedelic band, New Madrid. Joining New Madrid will be Chicago's Celtic-Punk band The Tossers. Tickets available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1149492
Here is what Pichfork had to say about New Madrid's 2014 release "Sunswimmer"
Pitchfork: New Madrid “Manners”
“If you're looking for Southern indie rock bands, Athens, Georgia is a great place to start, and New Madrid certainly embrace their surroundings on their upcoming LP Sunswimmer (out February 25); it's their first for Athens-based label Normaltown, the sister label of New West (Drive-By Truckers, Vic Chesnutt) and produced by former Sugar bassist David Barbe, who's chief of the Chase Park Transduction Studio (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Bright Eyes) and director of the University of Georgia's Music Business program.”
Bedrock 66 Live on WUIS is sponsored by Skeff Distributing Company, distributor of Goose Island Beer Company brews: 312 Urban Wheat, Honkers Ale, Matilda, and more.
