Local boys Remo Drive will be performing two shows at The 7th Street Entry on Saturday, September 22nd. The early one will be all ages followed by a 21+ one. Regardless of which show you choose, this is a band that should not be missed!
Dubbing your debut full-length Greatest Hits might be a bit of a misnomer—or, at worst, signs of a serious superiority complex—but there’s no bravado when it comes to REMO DRIVE. Instead, the Minnesota-based duo’s first album for Epitaph Records serves as the pinnacle of their four-plus years as a band up until the release of their label debut EP, Pop Music.
Remo Drive consists of brothers Erik (age 20) and Stephen Paulson (age 22), who formed the band in high school in 2013. Initially inspired by “older kids who smoked weed and listened to Title Fight,” the duo soon introduced elements of ’90s grunge and classic rock to create their own dynamic and deeply catchy sound. “It’s always going to be about loud guitars and big drums,” Erik says. “The best thing for us to do is not worry so much about aesthetic and focus on whatever feels natural with the overarching idea of being a rock ’n’ roll band.” Like Greatest Hits, Pop Music delivers lyrics with an unadulterated honesty.
Field Music will be opening both shows. Field Medic is the lo-fi folk project of Kevin Patrick. His first release on Run For Cover Records, Songs From the Sunroom, compiles material he’s recorded and released over two years from a small sunroom in San Francisco which doubled as his bedroom. At eighteen, Patrick discovered the music of Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, who changed his perspective on what a song could be and led to him developing his own style which he describes as “freak folk/post country with an emphasis on finger style guitar and lyrics.”
Also playing both shows will be a personal favorite of mine- Prince Daddy & The Hyenas. After surviving a cataclysmic event in way east kentucky, Prince Daddy & The Hyena formed an uncanny alliance in which they perform rad tunes for you!
