FUTUREBIRDS Teamwork Retreat
Three days of music featuring a lineup curated by the Futurebirds!
The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they’ve opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar.
FAQs and Important Show Information
The full lineup, show schedule, and more event information will be released closer to the event time. Expect an excellent lineup of musicians personally selected by the Futurebirds for your enjoyment!
