Elephant Child, formed in 2009, is a rock trio from Harrisonburg, VA. Comprised of guitarist and singer John Hostetter, bassist Aaron Probst, and drummer Scott Whitten, the group has been releasing studio-recorded music since 2010 and playing fairly often in the Central Virginia area. Their latest production came in February of this year in the form of a two-song EP, which is the group’s first studio work in two years. The songs, entitled “Kiss” and “Pink Sand,” represent the sharpening and continued evolution of the band’s hard-driving sound, which is consistently forceful, agitated, and rocking.

See Elephant Child open for New Boss this Thursday, August 21 at the Southern!

The Co-Pilots, fronted by Jonathan Teeter, are an indie-rock band from Charlottesville. Since their inception in 2011, the group has released one full-length record and three singles. The song “Ella Roselyn” is The Co-Pilots’ latest studio work (September 2013). Concocting a captivating and indulgent blend of gritty guitar work, chugging beat patterns, and effects-laden vocals often accompanied by crisp harmonies, The Co-Pilots capture the essence of the indie-rock spirit with each successive production. With a sound tailored for live performance, this group is poised to entertain on the mall this Friday. 

Go and catch The Co-Pilots open for Modern Medication this Friday, August 22 at the Southern!

Formed in 2008, Astronomers are a progressive pop band from Charlottesville. In their six years together, the group has released two records (Think Fast! and Size Matters) and are in the early stages of producing a much-anticipated third. Their sound is centered around Nate Bolling’s array of vocal abilities, groovy and often-syncopated rhythms, and crunchy guitar lines, all of which combine to captivate any listener. Don’t miss an opportunity to see this group perform new material in their opening set on Friday. 

Check out Astronomers when they open for Modern Medication this Friday, August 22 at the Southern!

John Anderson, younger brother of Parachute’s Will Anderson, is a pop-rock singer/songwriter from Charlottesville. Anderson has been developing his solo act since 2010, which, up to this point, has served to facilitate the relatively recent release of his first LP, Two. With a pleasant blend of pop-influenced melodies and harmonies and an authoritative, driving groove in these tunes, the UVA grad’s future on Central Virginia’s music scene certainly appears bright.

See John Anderson open for Skyward this Saturday, August 23 at the Southern!

RIYL: U2, Coldplay, Damien Rice

George Washburne from Crozet, Virginia is a rising senior at the University of Richmond, pursuing a degree in History and Business. Washburne began his involvement in the Charlottesville music scene by becoming a member of the Music Resource Center in high school, and has since gone on to release a full-length album of original music, perform with local artists like Carl Anderson and Erin Lunsford, and form groups that continue to play shows in the area.
