The Stoves + The Blackshots + TBA

The Stoves come home in support of their forthcoming EP, playing high energy rock n roll music inspired by the early years of rock. Originally from Wisconsin, this five piece operates out of Nashville, TN. Their stage show is defined by tight instrumentation, alternating vocals, and high energy. Born in a barn, The Blackshots strove to drown out the din of clucking chickens and chirping birds by exuding the hues within their restless minds. The result: a unique brand of psychedelic punk.
