Tedo Stone
With a sound that has drawn comparisons to Alabama Shakes, Dinosaur Jr. and at times Neil Young, Tedo Stone’s live show is one not to miss. Tedo was born to play rock and roll. Growing up in a family with a musical father and where brothers handed down bass guitars to younger siblings like old sweatshirts, Stone was fronting a band and playing in motorcycle bars around his hometown of Covington, Georgia, when he was 12 years old. While hanging out in Athens, Georgia and playing with the endless array of talented young musicians there, Stone realized his songs were sounding different live, evolving with a mixture of wailing guitars and raw emotion. Tedo Stone's highly anticipated third full length studio album, Summer Sun, will be released in November 2017 on Laser Brains.
Palace Doctor (Album Release Show)
Palace Doctor is a three-headed garage pop beast from Athens, Georgia. Phillip Brantley (vocals, guitar) tapped Jeremy Wheatley (drums) and Nick Robbins (bass) to round out this grumpy, jaded trio in the summer of 2016. As members of Modern Skirts, Crooked Fingers, Eric Bachmann, Kuroma, Velveteen Pink, and more, the boys in Palace Doctor literally have thousands of shows under their belts and “cannot wait” to play even more. Hank Sullivant (MGMT, The Whigs) helped produce their debut LP, Mangled. Due out in September 22nd via Athens label Laser Brains, it’s a lean and memorable slice of literate college rock. Think Tom Petty with a touch of Pavement or Ray Davies with a scooch of Grandaddy.
DREW BESKIN (SOLO)
Drew Beskin (solo)
“If you’ve decided to follow Drew Beskin’s music, it can sometimes feel like he’s trying to be your nemesis, or at least that he’s trying to make you lose his trail. Over the last seven years or so, he’s offered intriguing bands like The District Attorneys, Party Dolls, and PURSES. Of those, only The DAs lasted more than one album, despite each project offering increasingly nuanced takes on Beskin’s version of indie pop. His first proper solo record, “Cha-Ching Machine”, was released in March of 2017 via his imprint, Laser Brains. Longtime Beskin listeners will recognize his style immediately in his nods from everything to ‘50s doo-wop to ‘80s jangle to current indie sounds Cha-Ching Machine boasts a remarkable consistency of sound and artistic vision, even for Beskin, who’s always shown a remarkable sense of control over what he wants to do.” - Popmatters
JAY GULLEY
Jay Gulley
Former frontman/songwriter/jackass for Athens, GA heroes, Modern Skirts, Jay Gulley plays old Skirts classic and new future hits that will be fully realized when he releases his debut on Laser Brains in 2018.
