You may think you know every acronym behind PBR, but think again! People’s Blues of Richmond (PBR), an up-and-coming band with a sound of carnival-like mayhem mixed with psychedelic blues, is coming to Flying Dog Brewery on July 18th. This power trio’s newest single, “Gone Gone Gone,” was produced by the notorious Mark Neill- mastermind behind Grammy winning record Brothers by The Black Keys.
Critics from all over can assure you this is one show you won’t want to miss. Relix Magazinedescribed the sound of this embryonic band as, “…blues meets Modest Mouse-inspired crunch.” Creative Loafing states “[PBR is] A cross between The Black Keys and Black Sabbath with a healthy dose of Led Zeppelin cock-strut appeal- dark and heavy rock n’ roll, dosed in psychedelia and driven by metal-shredded guitar and bluesy riffage.”
The reputation behind the raw intensity of PBR is spreading like wild fire. Their live performances attract large flocks of fans at festivals like Lockn’ & Electric Forest. The trio has shared stages with big names like Modest Mouse and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes. The band also shares bills with an impressive collection of artists including JJ Grey & Mofro to Dinosaur Jr.
Come see the show at Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, July 18th. Doors open at 5pm and you must be 21+ with a valid photo ID to enter. Other performances include sets by Surfer Blood and The Sun Club. Tickets are available at flyingdogtix.com.
