Rock Out With The Vegabonds And Their Anthemic “Georgia Fire” > “The Hammer” Jam [Premiere]

first_imgThe Vegabonds are a force to be reckoned with. Their gorgeous harmonies and impressive instrumental skills make for a perfect combination. They know how to showcase their sound to the fullest, which they accomplished in spades on their 2016 release What We’re Made Of. The album came as the result of seven years of touring, songwriting, and a dedication to making their band the best that it can be. Their hard work has surely paid off, as they delivered a solid record that combines complex lyrics with soaring music in a way that’s reminiscent of My Morning Jacket and The Black Crowes.Back in 2016, The Vegabonds brought their high-octane live show to Aisle 5 in Atlanta, where they performed an awesome combination of “Georgia Fire” into “The Hammer” that truly shows off the best of their talents. “Georgia Fire” is from their 2012 record Southern Sons, and it was written after the tragic fire that hit the Georgia Theatre in 2009. The video shows off the emotional, power chord-driven rock anthem, with spot-on guitar playing and tons of energy from the band, before they drop into the equally epic What We’re Made Of track “The Hammer.”Lead-singer and rhythm guitarist Danny Allen explains, “‘Georgia Fire’ is about a group of our friends who frequented the Georgia Theatre where they caught some of their favorite shows. The song is based on the emotions they felt when they heard that a massive fire nearly burned the Theatre to the ground in June 2009. We love Athens, GA, and will be playing GATH on April 12th.”See below for our exclusive premiere of “Georgia Fire” into “The Hammer” by The Vegabonds, as well as a list of upcoming tour dates from the band.The Vegabonds Tour Dates:3/9 – Clemson, SC – 3563/10 – St. Simons, GA – Palm Coast Coffee3/14 – Gulf Shores, AL – Florabama3/16 – 30A, FL – The Hub3/17 – Pensacola, FL – World of Beer3/24 – Blacksburg, VA – 622 North4/12 – Athens, GA – Georgia Theatre4/13 – Black Mountain, NC – Pisgah Brewing Company4/14 – Lexington, KY – The Burl4/22 – Atlanta, GA – Aisle 5 (Official Sweetwater 420 After-Party)5/5 – Greenville, SC – Gottrocks5/6 – Columbia, SC – Rosewood Crawfish Festival5/18 – Destin, FL – Funky Blues Shack5/19 – Gulf Shores, AL – Florabama6/10-11 – Chattanooga, TN – Riverbend Festival6/13 – 7/11 – Europe Tourlast_img read more

Bears Bees + Brews: An Exciting Movement for Wildlife

first_imgWhen you think of black bears, what comes to mind for you?  Some may think of a large, wild creature raiding neighborhood trash cans while others may recall a charming sighting of a mama bear with her adorable cubs during a childhood camping trip.  Bears Bees + Brews Festival Local resident Roni Hidalgo moved to Asheville close to 5 years ago.  She soon became enamoured by the beautiful lush surroundings of Western North Carolina, but it was not long after her move that she noticed entire forests being cut down to make room for development.  This ignited a sense of urgency to get the community involved to help sustain the region’s biodiversity.   There is little doubt bears are amazing creatures.  They can walk around on two legs, communicate via scratching marks on trees, and eat what we eat. But did you know they are also of utmost importance to the environment?  Even the performers are lovers of nature, of our mountains, and wildlife. Tyler Ramsey, former lead guitarist of Band of Horses, will headline the festival along with Dave (an avid beekeeper) and Andrea of Cicada Rhythm and The Moon and You.  Bees and other pollinators are also necessary to maintain healthy ecosystems. It is estimated one third of the food we consume daily relies on pollinators.  Sadly, the bee population is declining due to the use of harmful pesticides. If the honeybee population were to disappear entirely, it would result in a serious impact on our health and nutrition.  To learn more visit BearsBeesBrews.com or @bearsbeesbrews on Facebook and Instagram. The Black Bear is an apex predator, which is a kind of predator that is placed on top of the food chain.  This does not mean they are scary, dangerous beasts. In fact, they are very solitary animals. As an apex predator, black bears are vital to a healthy ecosystem, and healthy ecosystems are  important to a healthy society.  Why Are Bears + Bees Important?  “Collaborating with these organizations helps us in our mission to educate the community,” Hidalgo says. center_img The culmination of this year’s work for Bears Bees + Brews will take place at a free wildlife conservation festival on Saturday, October 19, from 12-5pm at New Belgium Brewery.  Attending this family-friendly festival is a great way to show your support for wildlife and habitat conservation and their efforts.  Every organization, business and volunteer involved recognize how important it is to create a conservation celebration in Asheville and Western North Carolina right now.  She founded Bears Bees + Brews, a project that seeks to inspire people and raise awareness about wildlife conservation in a fun, exciting and interactive way.   “Raising awareness is key,” Hidalgo says. “But doing it in fun, inspiring ways will help people interpret and digest information more effectively and want to share it with others.”  Bears Bees + Brews produces festivals and events to create a safe space for friends and families to have fun while having access to policy makers and wildlife experts to learn more about sustaining wildlife, habitat and lands. The project collaborates with other organizations such as Wildlands Network, Center for Honeybee Research and NPCA. For residents of Western North Carolina, bear sightings are quite common throughout the region. In fact, it is estimated that 100 to 200 black bears live among Asheville’s population of 90,000 people.  Oftentimes, bears show up in our neighborhoods in search of food because their natural habitats are being threatened by the increase in urban development. Most negative bear encounters can be prevented with the right education, a mission that one Asheville resident took upon herself to fulfill.   A Movement for Wildlife Conservation last_img read more
