Artist of the day: Bet Me I'm Lying
Over the weekend, Bet Me I'm Lying opened for Ryan Cabrera at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg. It's just the latest big gig for the teenage rockers, including gigs with the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and as far away as Michigan.
The band -- singer C.J. Harris (vocals), Jackson Marquardt (guitar), Kirk Adikes (guitar), Brennan Marquardt (drums) and Jamie Craske (bass) -- plays a style of alternative rock that's a fusion of the bands they find influential, from Manchester Orchestra to Motion City Soundtrack to R.E.M., resulting in a hard and fast driving beat with some jangly guitars thrown in.
