The Pack A.D.
April 21 @ 8:00 pm
The Pack A.D. returns to The Grey Eagle in Asheville NC on Thursday April 21st. It’s an ALL AGES show at 8pm and doors open at 7pm.
Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals-this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic, so fierce and raw and empowering, that it’s easy to forget there are just two people behind this brilliant, carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their fearless Franken-blend of heavy psychpop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are wild nests, human and complex: darkly funny disclosures about depression; indictments of digital excess; grief-stricken fire bombs; sly crusades against stupidity.
Fantømex is an indie punk, post-harcore band from Western North Carolina. The group started with longtime friends, guitarist Isaac Crouch and drummer Edwin Mericle who jammed together off and on since high school. In 2017, they decided to take it to the next level and form an honest-to-goodness band. Add into the mix vocalist Abigail Taylor writing intense, thought-provoking lyrics and counter rhythmic melodies; and Max Miller rounding out the band with his punchy, fast bass lines and his ever-flowing, imaginative songwriting abilities, and you get Fantømex. Influenced by bands like mewithoutYou, Frodus, At the Drive-In, The Mars Volta, David Bowie, The Blood Brothers and so many more, Fantømex’s music is fast, loud and full of angsty female empowerment. Fantømex’s live shows are a hypnotic and high energy performance that borders on theatrical. They are a performance not to be missed.
Fantømex released their debut album: “Consent Agenda” in April 2020. The eleven song LP was recorded in Morganton, NC at Bombhouse Studios. The band is currently set to release their new EP: “Terraformed” in the spring of 2022.
