M.R.Smith headlines a night of indie-folk grunge, with a full-blown ukulele assault from Candasse, Ukulele Menace, and Jesse & the Great Perhaps.
M.R.Smith is a project run by Matthew Smith. He released his first EP in the summer of 2011 and is now working on a new album that will be released in 2013. The music is somewhere between folk and grunge, pulling influences from modern folk music and the NJ basement scene. Just imagine The Black Keys playing with Mumford & Sons in a basement and you've got the idea.
Candasse has no true genre; instead, she can be found singing sappy love songs, angsty punk, classic hits and / or making Kanye West sound even better. Her originals often are comical as she can't seem to pass up an opportunity to sing about PB&J, zombie love, or killing her bamboo plant. But, rest assured – no song, meaningful or not, lacks passion when she performs.
Ukulele Menace is a Folk-Punk Ukulele *Revolution*. Consisting of Talea, Olivia, and a ukulele, they play music for the soul with a tambourine to keep the beat – and voices that are just awesome.
Jesse & the Great Perhaps began in early 2011, when Jesse started playing ukulele shows around the Atlanta area. About a year later, Matt joined up. A few months later, Chris brought his magnificent facial hair stylings to the group. Powered by Jesse's songwriting, the band features quirky instrumentation, heavy vocal arrangements, and always a surprise or two.
