With their new EP- “Vol III: Ghost Tales” – set to be released on 8/4/17, Bells and Hunters is celebrating the completion of their album “Modern Witch’s Songbook” with a blowout (farewell?!?) show at Black Cat DC. After 9 years, this will be the final live show the band performs before lead vocalist Kelliann Beavers relocates to Las Vegas the following week. While the future is uncertain, they’ll be pulling out all the bells on this night including welcoming some very special guests and a returning Joe McMurray on lead guitar. It will also be Mr. Guido’s birthday! Bells and Hunters refuse to say if this will be their final show ever, but – just in case – they hope to celebrate with all of you one more time.
They will be joined for the evening by some of their favorite local bands:
Fellowcraft is an original Grunge-Blues Trio from Washington DC. Their sound has been described as a disparate connection between bands like Alice in Chains and the Black Keys. All three members favor a minimalistic approach to Rock and Roll that allows each instrument to be featured prominently. The trio released their sophomore record, a full length album, “Get Up Young Phoenix”, in January of 2016. The trio’s third release is due out in Fall 2017. They’re also really, really nice guys.
When the members of Short Lives aren’t performing spot-on tributes to their 90’s musical heros, they are creating their own brand of guitar drenched rock that will put a smile on your face and your shoulders back in place. Frontman Erik Bradford’s vocals and relentless guitar highlight this trio’s sound that is not quite punk, not quite prog, but fully their own. Their latest album “Play Bloody” was released in June of this year.
