Athens, Greece is a city known for its great history and culture. Across the Atlantic in Athens, Georgia, emerges an American, indie brand of rock with a hint of psychedelia known as Futurebirds.
The five-piece band is composed of Thomas Johnson, Carter King, Dennis Love, Brannen Miles, and Daniel Womack. Formed in 2008, Futurebirds gained a fan following and a record deal through their first, self-titled EP released the following year. The next couple of years saw a few more releases for the up-and-coming quartet, ultimately leading to the release of their full-length album, Baba Yaga.
Futurebirds has constantly been on tour, expanding their fan base and earning the cache to create and release albums. It’s 2013, and they just kicked off a new tour to promote the long-awaited, second full-length album, the aforementioned Baba Yaga. As part of their cross-country tour, the psychedelic five-piece is making a stop at the 9:30 Club on May 23, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!
