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

Attorney general’s office files two campaign finance law enforcement actions

first_imgThe Vermont Attorney General’s Office filed two civil lawsuits yesterday on behalf of the State of Vermont in Vermont Superior Court, Washington Unit, against the Republican Governor’s Association (’RGA’) and Green Mountain Future (’GMF’) seeking enforcement of Vermont’s campaign finance laws.The Complaints filed by the Attorney General’s Office allege that, during the current general election cycle, RGA and GMF have acted as political committees under Vermont law without complying with, and indeed, while refusing to comply with, the requirements of Vermont’s campaign finance laws for such entities. Specifically, GMF has run political advertisements or ‘electioneering communications’ which did not contain the identification information required by law, and it has also failed to properly register with the Secretary of State’s Office and to file campaign finance reports. Similarly, RGA has engaged in election advertising while ignoring Vermont’s reporting and registration requirements, and it has also accepted contributions in violation of Vermont’s contribution limits for political committees. Source: Attorney General’s office. October 25, 2010last_img read more
