The Rustic Scores Again with Futurebirds' Show This Thursday

In keeping with The Rustic’s confounding tradition of bringing damn fine acts to a lame-ass part of town, Futurebirds will be at said venue this week. The Athens, Ga., outfit, beloved on the alt-country scene since the release of its debut album Hampton’s Lullaby in 2010, is definitely a band that you’ll wanna catch live.

Bringing indie rock playfulness and an ethereal mood to bear on tunes that default to a country-rock/alt-Americana style, Futurebirds are soulful and magnetically emotive in their sound. Sure, this is roots music – but the roots are finely manicured, to say the least. In the live setting, like any self-respecting country crew, Futurebirds dials up the honky-tonk, but without losing any of the pristine quality that its music manages on record. For the uninitiated, let me put it like this: Futurebirds are like the crazy combination of Fleet Foxes and Drive-By Truckers that you never knew you always wanted.



Free with RSVP, Thu July 19, 8:30pm, The Rustic, 17619 La Cantera Pkwy Ste. 204, therustic.com.
