Friday, November 1st       Doors 7/Show 8        $8      Tickets

Excuse me, Columbia. Since when did you start getting really awesome shows so close to one another? After a wild Crystal Fighters show, a beautiful Dodos show, and an extremely successful Toro y moi show, another extravaganza is making its way to our lovely city. The show, which will be at Conundrum on November 1st, is somewhat of a halloween show, and all the bands have promised that they are going to be making out with at least one member of the audience (as long as they are dressed up in a costume that is more than a 6).

If you’re not familiar with these bands, let me give you a rundown. The headliners, Stepdad (http://stepdad.us) are an electro-pop group from Michigan who last played in Columbia about two years ago. After the show, they raved about the crowd in Columbia, and even suggested that it was the best show they had ever played. The singer ripped his shirt off for the first time ever in a concert and this time we’re hoping for more (socks). One Two Skidoo (http://www.frankiemunizracing.com/) are a heart-breaking golf team that play backwoods sunshine music that sounds as if a songbird got stuck in Aaron Carter’s basketball. They haven’t played a real-life show in two years and plan to continue that tradition. Heyrocco are a gorgeous 3-piece from Charleston who will be heading to Columbia hot off an incredible recording session up in Nashville, TN. Expect a bunch of fine-tuned new songs about mums, dads, and Nascar. Finally, opening the show is the angelic Nathan K. who will be serenading the crowd with his soft-spoken lyrics and loops-upon-loops. Make sure you get the early to witness this beautiful make.

Written by Rupert Hudson

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.
