This past doozy of a three-day weekend/bender continued Saturday with five local acts performing at the CL in Concerts Independence Fest. The bash took place at the State Theatre. I arrived in time to catch emotive math rockers Military Junior turn in a taut, frisky performance that brought me to the lip of the stage.
The trio recently posted a new song, Unconventional, on its website and is recording a full-length they hope to have ready for release by October. Its going to be a little more mainstream sounding, said singer/guitarist Jason Schultz (pictured left).
He and I had just finished watching alt-country ensemble Have, Gun Will Travel deliver yet another set that left me wondering why this Bradenton band isnt in a balls-out bidding war with New West, Bloodshot and Lost Highway. Incidentally, HGWT is meeting with a prospective manager who has the juice to make such a thing happen.
