This weekend’s music lineup for Shreveport-Bossier ventures outside the box with a dose of alt-rock and experimental sound artists performing live at different venues in town.
Shreveport indie band Victor Olston will mark the launch of their debut album, Heritage, with a CD release party, Friday night, Aug. 10, at Fatty Arbuckles in the Red River District. The fairly new band – it was founded in 2010 – has already begun winning over audiences with its Americana sound, which fans first got a taste of on their five-song EP Hunter Traps released in 2010 just a month after their first rehearsal.
Hear their new album when they perform live with opening performances by fellow Shreveport alt-rockers Riverwolves and Irene and the Sleepers. Even better, not only do you get to hear it live, but you get a free copy of the new album at the door. In the meantime, see them perform “War” live in this video:
The music of Andrew Weathers doesn’t just fall into the traditional categories of music like rock, country or pop. Instead, the Chapel Hill N.C. native-turned-Oakland, Ca.-based composer and improviser creates music with sounds influenced by a mix of underground noise and 20th century American minimalists, which can be heard in his albums like Someone Else’s Summer and Winter Pieces, as well as his most recent release, We Don’t Have Sun Like This, a collaborative album with Andrew Marino.
Explore his music live when he performs Saturday night, Aug. 11 at minicine? and while there, check out a group exhibit of mono-prints from regional artists, including Catherine Nelson, Joshua Chambers and Landry Debussy.
