Feb 20 8pm $5 Blackbeard’s Truck Columbia’s own

Posted on Jan.29, 2015

blackbeards truckEntertaining the southeast since 1996, Blackbeard’s Truck has come a long way since their humble beginnings. Formed originally by Grant Wooten and Mac Leaphart, Blackbeard’s Truck performed their first show for a high school graduation celebration. As time moved on and so did the guys to their respective colleges and universities, Blackbeard’s Truck followed Wooten to the University of South Carolina. Growing and ever changing with new musicians and their varying talents and skills, the band went from playing the typical fraternity show to playing in local bars and other special events, captivating audiences at every show. Through the years, the Truck has seen some come and go for various reasons but has continued to maintain excellent showmanship and entertainment for the audiences they play for with the talents of the members that have come to form what the band is known as of today, some of which have been a part of the group almost from the beginning. If Blackbeard’s Truck is missing a weekend of rocking out a venue near you, you can guarantee, they are writing, rehearsing, and recording their upcoming albums. The sophomore album BFL is available on iTunes.


July 9th/$10/8pm Nashville Star Greg Pope and the Popmonsters

Posted on Jan.29, 2015

gp header 6-09Greg PopeGreg Pope is a Nashville based power pop artist whom you may or may not have heard on the radio, though his songs have likely made it into your living room via TV shows like America’s Next Top Model and Last Comic Standing. In power pop circles he is perhaps best known for his 2008 release “Popmonster” which landed him in the top ten lists of most of the sought-after web sites and blogs of the day. Since then he has released six solo albums including his most recent “Fanboy” earning him titles such as “A one-man thermonuclear bomb” (popgeekheaven. com) and “The Pope of Powerpop” (AbsolutePowerpop.com). Prior to his solo endeavors it was Pope’s Nashville based power pop trio Edmund’s Crown that caught the attention of television, with Dawson’s Creek and NBC’s Providence featuring the band’s songs on multiple episodes.
Pope’s live act, The Popmonsters, includes session drummer and former Edmund’s Crown member David Sprouse, bass player and back up singer Jon Putnam, and Pope’s seventeen year old son Asher on rhythm guitar and back up vocals. The band covers Pope’s solo releases and his Edmund’s Crown  material with surprise doses of The Who, ELO, Big Star and The Beatles thrown in for good measure.
“I believe this: Greg Pope is one of the most important artists on the power pop scene. His work with  Edmund’s Crown was worthy of any pop fan’s  ardour. His solo work is a whole different plane of accomplishment and consistently jaw-droppingly  astonishing.” Excerpt from the book Power Pop Prime, Vol 9 by Bruce Brodeen
