Artist of the day: Escape Tonight
In August, Escape Tonight released their CD Far From Home. Produced by Joe Quinde (Jay-Z, LL Cool J), it's full of fuzzy, humming grunge-power-pop in the vein of Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr. or early Foo Fighters.
The band — currently singer-guitarist Russell Fama, bassist Rick Herbert, guitarist Pete Tremblay and drummer Chris Denny — formed in early 2011, and have since performed with the likes of Paper Tongues, Less Than Jake and the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Recently they were among the bands opening for Hoobastank at the Half Way to St. Patty’s Day concert at Durty Nelly’s in St. Petersburg.
On Sunday, look for them at the Rock Solid Pressure industry showcase at the State Theatre in St. Pete. Doors open at noon, and tickets are $12. Click here.
