About this Event

BIRD LAWW

Bird Laww is an Indie-rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. Founding members Logan Webb (guitar, vocals) and Jeff Konzal (guitar, vocals) Met while overcoming drug addiction in a rehabilitation center. They immediately became close friends and started playing music together. After years of writing and recording demos, they decided to form a band with Matt Kreisher (drummer), and later, Jesse Buchannan (Bass). They recorded their first self-titled EP in 2015 and started playing shows. They just released their first full length titled "Nothing Matters" which is live on Spotify and most other streaming platforms.

SELF WILL RUN RIOT

Self Will Run Riot is a hip hop duo from Marietta, GA made up of Patrick Mahon (P Suade) and Adam Abramowitz (AZ). Both Patrick and Adam have been in recovery from substance abuse for 5 years.

Patrick started writing when he got sober in 2013. The process allowed him to therapeutically capture his thoughts and emotions so he could express himself in the truest way possible.

He released a mixtape in 2015 called "Relapse Prevention". The title was based on a packet given to him in rehab where the exercise was to write a plan of action for staying sober long term. This mixtape was his personal relapse prevention packet and he hoped that whoever listened could be inspired from the lyrics to stay sober one more day.

Adam encountered Patrick outside of a recovery meeting and was given the "Relapse Prevention" mixtape. He listened to it and was inspired to help Patrick any way he could.

Adam started recording Patrick's songs in his basement and began planning the next steps. He helped Patrick attend shows, shoot videos, and challenged him to be more vulnerable with his writing in hopes of inspiring others during the process.

On November 14th 2017 Adam and Patrick decided to write a song together. They continued writing songs for the next couple of weeks. (2 of which are on their upcoming album.)

In December of 2017, Patrick was asked to perform a 20 minute set at the Masquerade in Atlanta, GA. Patrick decided that the both of them would perform, calling themselves P Suade & AZ.

The show was scheduled for February 28th, 2018 and in preparation, they tirelessly practiced and rehearsed. They told everyone they knew about the show. and when they stepped on stage the evening of February 28th, they were ready.

After the show, it became apparent that they had something special, an energy that both of them fed off of and enhanced. That night, they decided to pursue their artistry as a duo and began writing songs regularly over the next 4 months. After they had written a handful of songs, they started scheduling live performances and consistently attended 3-5 shows a week..

As of September 15th 2018, P Suade and AZ have written and recorded their debut album on AZ's computer.

The two stewed over what to call themselves for months until they came up with "Self Will Run Riot".

Self Will Run Riot is a slogan used in the recovery community to describe how someone's actions can become out of control if they rely solely on their own self will. For P Suade and AZ, the term Self Will Run Riot has a dual meaning. The first is that no one is going to do the work for them. They need to discipline themselves and take action to realize their potential. The second meaning is that their own "self will" cannot accomplish what they have set out to do. They have needed, and will continue to need, the love and support of other people.

"Self Will Run Riot" is meant to be a beacon for those who are unsure of how to move towards what they truly love, because the truth is, we are all afraid sometimes. Patrick and Adam move towards fear in hopes of inspiring others to do the same. To show that freedom is right on the other side of fear.
