Weekend Warrior, July 6 - 8

Weekend Warrior, July 6 - 8

Venturing through the glorious and gloomy days with a rough, gritty exterior and a melodic core, Left & Right appears to have reached its final destination. This evening at Johnny Brenda’s will be the quartet’s final show. The Charlottesville transplants exhibit the ability to magnetically pull you into personal narratives that mimic or highlight one’s own circumstances, and after sitting calmly on the couch and collecting your thoughts, it pushes past the familiar walls. That release of emotion opens up the cathartic floodgates. Delaware trio Grace Vonderkuhn will also be unleashing its brooding psych-punk musical mesh – part frenetic fuzz and a smoky slow-oozing stew. Articulating genuine self-awareness in momentous, endearing waves, No Thank You harnesses emotive energy, while the cozy, haze-inspiring tunes of Queen Jesus are set to kickstart this weekend.
