People like Lino are the reason why TBLFAS was created. It gives talented performers in multiple bands who have enough time to rock out four times a month with their various projects but never have get to show their stripped down, more personal side, alone on stage. If you are a fan of shoegaze and want to see how songs like this originate come see the guy that does Guitar/Vox at season of strangers, Guitar/Vox at The Little Donuts and skins at The Dignitaries. Here is a video of Lino on guitar with one of the many bands he performs with:
Spencer is a special talent. He is the younger kid brother you never wanted but are happy he was born, thought provoking lyrics and skills as a solo artist that are beyond his years. He was featured in last year’s #41for2015Fest as our opening act. Here’s a video from that show at Substation:
Reilly is the guitar-wielding front man of rock band Good Men and Thorough. His classic song structure and delivery is refreshing in a city of weirdos who are trying to be different, news flash you can be different just by being yourself. Here is a video clip of Reilly performing at TBLFAS #56 18 TBLFAS ago.
Each showcase I try and reach out and book a performer who is unkown to me, like Paul Jenkins.
(Author’s note: Next month we go from Sausage fest to Gurl Power.)
