Among the other events First Friday has to offer, the Grand Stafford will host a free concert series on September 2, with performances by Canvas People, Strange Fiction, Keeton Coffman, and Astrochimp.
Described as a cross between Kings of Leon and Death Cab for Cutie, Canvas People is sure to delight any indie rock lover. Producing a “unique brand of new age music,” Canvas People blends elements of harmony-driven alternative rock, lucid, and indie space rock. With this new sound comes their alluring infusion of three-part harmonies and seductive indie rock vibes. The band is based out of the Austin and is guaranteed to excite all audiences.
Keeton Coffman’s music reflects his love for sonic storytellers, such as Bruce Springsteen and The Wallflowers. His sound is an echo of his love for Motown sonics: the vibes of small town Texas he grew up in and his “true Rock and Roll soul.” A seasoned songwriter and performer, Keeton Coffman is a must-see. Along with performing at Grand Stafford on September 2, his new full-length album, Killer Eyes, will be released that day as well.
Also originating in Austin is another act of the night, Strange Fiction. An emerging indie rock band founded in late 2014, Strange Fiction has played in multiple venues in Austin, such as The Swan Dive and Lambert’s Downtown Barbecue. They attract audiences from across the city who are drawn to the mix of indie rock and pop Strange Fiction boasts of.
And finally, Astrochimp, a small indie rock band, will take the Grand Stafford stage on Friday, September 2, to close the performances of the night.
Grand Stafford’s lineup for the First Friday of September 2016 is an array of indie and alternative rock artists that are sure to please. Admission is free, and the show starts at 7pm.
