500 Miles to Memphis – St. Patty’s Party
March 17 @ 9:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Formed in 2003, the boys of 500 Miles to Memphis came together on the banks of the Ohio River between Cincinnati, OH and Newport, KY. Their genre-bending take on Americana and punk rock has been received worldwide in the form of movies, tv, video games, and their award-winning live shows. Logging 250 performances a year, these indie road kings have been to hell and back. After taking a short break from touring in 2017, 500mtm has jumped back in the studio to deliver their 5th studio album with Old 97’s producer John Pedigo at the legendary Gwynne Sound in Cincinnati. If you are a fan of high octane punk rock, bluegrass, and Appalachia, these boys are for you. The latest album “Blessed Be the Damned” is set for release on Jan. 25th, 2019.
“They don’t sound like anyone else. At all. Or at any point… 500 Miles To Memphis have constructed something wonderful here… “Blessed Be The Damned”? Hell, yes. The Devil always has more fun, you see, and damn me, this is good.” – Andy Thorley, Maximum Volume Music
“Blessed has so many catchy songs, it’s easy to find yourself tapping your feet along with the groove instead of taking notes or writing a review, and nearly impossible to find a favorite. In short, if you like rock, you’ll like this album. The mean mountain riff of the title track, the 90s punk of “No Doubt About It,” the bluegrass-cum-cowpunk of “In My Chest” – the album is just good from front to back and might be 500 MTM’s best yet.” – Brandon Wheeler, CincyMusic.com
“Guitars crunch madly, spurred to high gallop by the same splendidly indomitable beat that’s always propelled rock’n’roll. And robust vocals make fine topping for sometimes Celtic-informed “Americana Punk”-DC Larson’s Jukebox
“this bunch blows their sound wide open as this sounds nothing like the last 4 entries. Aggression is always in fashion and the malcontent vets brought in as ringers here know how to turn it up to 11.” -MidwestRecord
