Kick October off right with another installment of the First Friday Concert Series at the Grand Stafford Theater in Bryan. Scheduled for October 7, the concert will include the Landon Evans Band, The New Offenders, and The Cover Letter.
The Landon Evans Band will headline the event, having just performed at KBTX Free Music Friday in Bryan on September 30. The five-man band was formed right here in College Station in 2014, and all five either were or are students at Texas A&M University. The Landon Evans Band prides themselves on having found a style that they call traditional honky-tonk with their own level of flare. They are inspired by well-known names such as George Strait, Merle Haggard, and the Cody Johnson Band. The group released their debut album, titled “Landon Evans Band,” in October of 2015. A second is album to be released sometime this month.
The New Offenders are a southern rock Houston-based group founded in August of 2014. Their first album, titled “Stones to Throw” was released in December of 2014 and was widely successful.
With influences spanning from guitar greats such as Warren Haynes and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers to songwriters among the likes of Ryan Adams and Jack White, this album is sure to be popular among listeners.
The Cover Letter, a more indie rock style group, hails from Austin, forming in 2013. The group is well known in Austin for their multi-instrumentation, constant movement, and love of performing. The groups first EP was released in February of 2015 and they are working on their second, set to be released in early 2017.
This sets up to be a pretty excellent night of music, so head on out to the Grand Stafford on October 7. The doors will open at 7pm and music will begin at 8. Ticketing to the concert has many levels, but general admission is free. For more information on the other levels, check out the Grand Stafford website.
