On Friday, Sept. 15 be sure to check out the four local Indianapolis bands playing at Fountain Square Brewing Co.. The doors open at 7:30 p.m., the show starts at 8:00 p.m., and the event is free to attend.
Form & Void will kick off the show on Friday at 8:00 p.m. They categorize their genre as an interesting mix of atmospheric rock, ambient, and post-metal rock. The band is a trio comprised of Indianapolis locals Aaron Quinn, Justin Foxworth, and Derek Schweibold. You can check out Form & Void on Bandcamp.
At 8:40pm, Volk, a gothic, western rock duo, will take over. Getting their influences from the likes of Big Mama Thornton, Townes Van Zandt, Ennio Morricone, Johnny Cash, and Queen, band members Eleot Reich and Chris Lowe strive to carve out their own place with back to basics rock and roll. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the band will bring a raw and raucous western rock element to Fountain Square Brewing. For more information on Volk, you can visit their website.
After Volk finishes their set, Shadeland will take the stage around 9:30 p.m. As a band that claims to have been together for twelve years, Shadeland has changed their lineup several times throughout their career. They categorize themselves as “progressive rock for the common man,” and fit snugly in the genre of straight up rock. Shadeland consists of Allen Kell, Matt Johnson, Brad Hudgins, Andrew Hibdon, and Brad Johnson. You can check out Shadeland on SoundCloud.
Wrapping things up at the end of the night will be Autumn Androids from Mooresville, Indiana, who will start playing at 10:20 p.m. The band is made up of four members: Ricky White, Austin Wooten, Alec Ward, and Chris Woods. Autumn Androids is an electric folk, indie rock band promoting their debut album, “Regarding: Entropy,” which you can listen to on Bandcamp.
With a wide range of styles coming to Fountain Square tonight, even if only one of these bands sparks your interest, you’ve got nothing to lose. You could gain a few hours of free live music and craft beer pouring from the taps.
