February is right around the corner, which means there’s another free concert at Square Cat Vinyl in Fountain Square coming up. Next Friday is February 2nd, and the first Friday of the month. To honor the occasion, Square Cat Vinyl will be offering free beer samples, specials, and free live music. The bands to play for Frist Friday at Square Cat are Hero Jr. and Sound Company.
Hero Jr. is a four piece Indianapolis classic rock band. Over their years as a band, Hero Jr. has supported acts such as Alice Cooper, Tom Petty, Offspring, and more. Their music brings back a hard classic rock feel akin to bands like Nirvana, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin.
If there’s anything you can say about Hero Jr., it’s that they know how to rock. Even if classic rock has been somewhat played out over time, it’s good to see new bands pop up hoping to revive their favorite genre. Hero Jr. is loud, dynamic, and seems to know the ins and outs of their sound.
Hero Jr. consists of Evan Haughey (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Ken Rose (Lead Guitar), Ryan Keyes (Drums), and David DuBrava (Bass). You can find out more about Hero Jr. by visiting their website. You can also find Hero Jr. on Facebook and SoundCloud.
Sound Company is a psychedelic, R&B, blues, and rock band from Louisville, Kentucky. The band started playing together in 2014, and in 2016 released their first single, “Run”, which is available to listen to on Bandcamp.
Sound Company seems to like holding a groove. They do this in “Run”, building up and releasing tension throughout the course of the song.
The members of Sound Company are Billy Lease (guitar), Hunter Embry (vocals), Jaime Innis (bass), Josh Anna (drums), and Nick Hall (keys). For more information, you can find Sound Company on Facebook.
First Friday at Square Cat Vinyl kicks off at 8:00 pm next Friday, February 2nd. The show will last until around 11:00. And once again, it’s a free concert, so show some support and tip well.
