REVIEW: Ashland, Old Fox Road @ Error Records (5.19.15)

Jeremy T. Mcconnaha
Jeremy T. Mcconnaha kicked off the night with a great acoustic performance with songs from the EP he just finished recording in Nashville. He really got the crowd going after recruiting them as his rhythm section for one of his new tunes. After a rendition of “Hallelujah,” he called Ashland’s vocalist, Asia Woodward, to the stage to join him for his last song.

Lucid
The second act of the night, Lucid, was stripped down to an acoustic act due to a scheduling conflict with their drummer. That doesn’t take away from any of the talent these dudes have, though. They played a personal and unplugged set. Nearly everybody in the room was seated on the floor and I definitely heard a handful of people singing along to their songs. You can find their latest release, Outlier, here.

Krelboyne
Krelboyne was third in line showcasing their new drummer, Justin Pogue, who brought great energy to the group.

Old Fox Road
Next up was Old Fox Road. Now, the last time I saw this act, they were an acoustic duo with an upright bass and a Jasmine acoustic guitar. A few months ago, however, frontman Dylan Chupp’s guitar was accidentally broken. I suppose this set the stage for the full transition to electric. They played a handful of old favorites and a few new ones as well. Keep an eye out for their next release this summer.

Ordinary People

Touring act, Ordinary People, was definitely a great fit for this bill. I’m definitely looking forward to their EP Nothing New later this month.

Ashland

Ashland took the stage around 10:30 p.m. to close the show down with tracks from their newest EP, Interim. Fans of the band know it’s no secret that the lineup has changed significantly since they first began, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that they’re still going strong and putting out solid tunes. Interim is available here.
