It’s only fitting that Quality Time and their song “Driveway” are our final installment in the Pablo Sessions, featuring 6 acts from the Pablo Generation, a collective based in Clemson, SC. Fitting mostly because along with Daddy’s Beemer and Beach Bug they were our first introduction to what became the Pablo Generation. Quality Time’s 2017 album was one of our favorites of the year, and though they’re not as active anymore as that project, what they’ve brought to Tom Angst makes that project even more special.
In the six or so months since we started releasing these sessions the Pablo Generation has grown so much, booking more high-profile shows for each act and hosting more and more shows at Pablo, the house and namesake of the collective. It’s exactly what we’d hoped would happen, that these sessions could help give a boost and give people a glimpse of all the talented people involved. These bands and this collective is what this website is all about, banding together helping the music scene statewide. They’ve helped bring bands from all over South Carolina to Clemson and Greenville, and that’s been reciprocated by those acts.
Huge thanks to everyone in the Pablo Generation for coming down to Columbia and sticking with us all day to get these done and thank you to Jonah for help pulling it together. Thank you Ross Swinson for recording and mixing all the audio, and Tyler Gordon for lending a helping hand all day. Also, Leslie Leonard who helped film and edit all the videos and created the intro graphics.
