Event Details

Porch Bottom Boys with Sour Bridges at Red Light Café, Atlanta, GA

Call it bluegrass, browngrass, newgrass or taboograss, Porch Bottom Boys and Sour Bridges perform an evening of traditional-yet-diversely-eclectic music that defines the ever-evolving Americana movement.

 

Porch Bottom Boys at Red Light Café, Atlanta, GAThe Porch Bottom Boys proudly hail from Decatur, Georgia. Their music is based in bluegrass, seasoned with the diverse backgrounds of the band members in jazz, blues, rock, and other styles.

 

Guitarist and vocalist Steve Gorbatkin was born on the south side of Chicago and his years in the Windy City left an indelible blues-inflected mark on his singing.

 

Jim Thompson, an Atlanta native who also spent time living and working in the coal towns of Virginia, gives the band its deep bluegrass roots. Jim’s style draws on his experiences as a founding member of the Poetown Ramblers near Grundy, Virginia, and playing with bluegrass groups in Nashville.

 

Mandolinist and vocalist Denis Gainty has played various instruments with groups in Boston, New York, and Osaka before joining the Boys. His mandolin style reflects his eclectic musical influences and misspent youth.

 

When he’s not appearing with the Todd Prusin Experience or other projects, Todd Prusin brings his distinctive punch and energy to the band on the electric bass guitar.

 

Charles O’Neill rounds out the Boys with his tasty licks on the five-string banjo. Charlie’s front porch in Decatur gives the band their name and serves as their home base.

Sour Bridges at Red Light Café, Atlanta, GASour Bridges play browngrass. It’s like bluegrass, but a little dirtier. Based in Austin, TX, this folk-indie-bluegrass quintet formed in early 2009 and has been kicking up dust and boots ever since. With the May 2013 release of their sophomore album CATFISH CHARLIE, Sour Bridges plan to introduce their take on bluegrass to the world of Americana music. 

 

Comprised of artists from every different corner of the country, Sour Bridges’ sound is a combination of traditional Texas folk music, Appalachian bluegrass, and classic rock ‘n roll. CATFISH CHARLIE features 15 original tunes including the debut single “J Train” and the unforgettable final track, “Nice and Easy”. 

 

Tight vocal harmonies draw comparisons to The Lumineers and The Devil Makes Three while Sour Bridges’ honest lyrics and catchy rock ‘n roll delivery set the group apart from traditional pickin’ bands. Brother guitarists Bill and Matt Pucci harmonize perfectly with bassist Jackson Ellis to create a rich, full sound on CATFISH CHARLIE that is more similar to early doo-wop than backwoods bluegrass. With the addition of Kat Wilkes on fiddle and Dalton Chamblee on drums, Sour Bridges produce a lush, full and bright sound that is infectious, familiar, and just a little bit dirty.
