Hoax HuntersOct 20, 2016 | 3 comments
A few years ago, PJ Sykes put down the guitar and picked up the camera, putting focus on his blossoming music photography career. Though the lens never took him far from the stage, he could only stay away for so long. After four years of steady releasees on Sykes’ own label, Cherub Records, Hoax Hunters has been drawing comparisons to underground heroes like Minutemen, Husker Dü, and Dag Nasty. The band have been washing Richmond, VA and surrounding areas in feedback, drawing crowds for their infectious tunes, and their explosive and unhinged live shows. Ashland Coffee & Tea will be the band’s last stop on their Clickbait World Tour!
Jon and Kevin of Horsehead
Jon C. Brown and Kevin Wade Inge wanted a way to tour in situations where the full, loud Horsehead was not feasible. The duo took their existing Horsehead catalogue and rearranged the songs for a more intimate and immediate setting. Mainly performing with just two acoustic guitars, they bring you inside the circled wagons to experience rather than only watch. The music is both deeply grounded in history and wondrously performed; it’s hard to listen without tapping your foot or clapping along. For Jon and Kevin this way of performing has taken on a revivalist feel of its own, sometimes spiritual, sometimes devilish, but always a party.
