Our final NightRide act is the excellent rising southern rock band The Weeks. The Weeks came together in 2006 and instantly came to define the sound of Southern Rock in the 21st Century – their grunge-powered, high-octane anthems, rich with a bottomless Delta soul far deeper than the boys’ years would suggest. Their extraordinary energy and outsized performances – not to mention a series of well-received independently issued releases have earned them a fervent fan following. We are very happy for them to be part of The Ride!
Next up: The Soft White Sixties. Named as one of Paste Magazine’s “Top 25 Shows at SXSW 2013”, these San Francisco rockers are increasingly gaining recognition for their infectious live performance. Since 2010 they have been perfecting their sound, appropriately dubbed Working Class Soul – a gritty edge to modern pop. They mix their vast influences into a hard-hitting and confident force reminiscent of classic R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll but with a contemporary sensibility.
The next band we are pleased to announce for the NightRide shows is Escondido. Check back every day this week for more band announcements.
The first emerging band we are proud to announce for the NightRide shows at The Ride Festival is Rival Sons. It will be their first trip to Teluride and they will definitely rock the stage! More bands to come every day this week …
