ALBUM REVIEW: Dables – Dables
It’s been a long-time coming, but the full-band debut of Dables is finally here. For those unfamiliar with Dables, it was originally the solo project of Fountain Inn musician and Daniel Johnston worshipper, David Walker. Over the past several years he had been quite prolific as a solo artist, but eventually his desire to make a louder noise led him to forming a full band incarnation with Cody Blackwell and Jake Garrett both trading off bass and drum duties.
ALBUM REVIEW: Last Remaining Pinnacle – Visitors
For those not familiar with Last Remaining Pinnacle, the Virginia duo recently wrapped up a 4 day mini-tour with Greenville “it” kids Modern Man hitting Greenville, Columbia, Myrtle Beach and Charleston. I got a chance to see them when they came through Greenville, and when I received an Inquisition reference to my Strike Anywhere (those are bands, sorry) shirt I was wearing, I knew I was in good company.
UPCOMING SHOWS: Don’t Sweat It Fest!
Anyone who is familiar with anything I’ve written for this site knows about my penchant for outdoor, small town festivels. Which brings us to our next stop on this musical-outdoor-summer-fest-tour; the Don’t Sweat It Fest! Besides having arguably the best festival name out there, the Don’t Sweat It Fest is going to be a pretty awesome affair.
FEATURED VIDEO: Our Western Sky WSBF Sessions
Today’s new featured video comes courtesy of our friends and yours, WSBF in Clemson. This video is part of their live sessions show, and in addition to being filmed for the internet, it is also broadcast live on WSBF radio itself. Another cool thing about this broadcast is that it is part of a playlist and you can skip around to listen to different songs from the session. So without any further adieu I give you Our Western Sky’s Live Sessions!:

INCOMING TRANSMISSIONS: WATU Incorporates Fete Mobile Music Into Site
Hello everyone, as you may or may not know in addition to running WATU, I also have been a contributing writer at Fete magazine in Greenville since February. One of the things I love about the magazine (in addition to the regular layout), is the Fete Mobile Music site. This site has a monthly calendar for every bar in Greenville that regularly has music, as well as who’s playing where on that particular night.
