This Machine Is the Hot Topic


This Machine is Me has made it a habit to be one of the best promoting bands in Columbia.  In the last year they have been featured on Scene SC, in The Free Times, The State paper, The Daily Gamecock and Garnet and Black magazine.  They have been on WXRY a couple of times, WUSC a couple of times, played acoustic shows in Russell House, had student projects done about them and they are now playing their second acoustic meet and greet at Hot Topic.

This Friday from 4-6 PM This Machine is Me will be playing a couple of acoustic songs and giving out free adolescent advice at the Hot Topic at Columbiana.  This is all in promotion of one of their summer blowout shows June 20th at New Brookland Tavern with The Decade, Say Vandelay, O’Verona and Man with a Gun.  I say one of their blowout Summer Shows because again on July 4th they will be at Art Bar with The Restoration,The Reason Your Listening, The Dirty Eighties, Twilight Armada and The Lights, Fluorescent.

O’Verona was at the same Hot Topic last week promoting this show also.  Videos from that event can be found on their myspace.  I’ve gotten pretty good at predicting how many people will be at shows and according to my expert calculations I am predicting 234 at the June 20th show.

For tickets to the June 20th show you can either call Byron at 803 606 2256 or purchase them at the meet and greet for $5.


  1. P.S. Even though they are super new, I highly recommend making sure you get there early enough to see Man With A Gun. You seriously will not regret it.
