So Much Light // Bernie & The Wolf

Tuesday, April 30
6:00PM
Free

So Much Light
In a small suburban bedroom, So Much Light was born, an amalgam of man and character, story and history, natural and manipulated. Using his voice as a tool for progress, Verrett effectively pushes the boundaries of what pop music should sound like--and what it should say. Combining Drake’s vulnerability, the vocal affectation of The Weeknd and Jack Antonoff’s musical production prowess, Verrett created a socially conscious full-length debut, Oh, Yuck.

Bernie & The Wolf
Chicago indie rock duo Bernie & The Wolf is an unassuming wall of sound as melancholic as it is powerful. The sultry vocals and dreamy yet alt-rock-driven guitar soundscapes float over a rhythmic whiplash of drumming to fill an impressive amount of space between just two people. The band released their debut album "Catch Some" in 2017 and have since frequently toured the U.S. and Canada, most recently in support of their newest single "This Time Last Year," a first glimpse into the new direction of the duo's sound. They have most recently been compared to indie bands such as Hop Along or Land of Talk with some math rock influences.

The Turbos

Monday, August 12
6:00PM
Free

The Turbos are a high energy, alt-rock, quartet based in Columbus. The name is derived from the influence that the Columbus Rock scene had on the band. Whether you're freakin' or fightin', they got that rock for your roll! The Turbos come together to rock faces and foundations with a fierce thirst for the bright lights.
