Matt Megrue

He’s fronted the Atlanta pop-punk band, The Unusual Suspects, evolved into an indie rocker of Charleston’s Loner Society, and finally grown into a project that blends punk, emo, Americana and 80’s pop-nostalgia.

During our conversation, we discuss his latest album, The Mourner’s Manual, the lack of rock bands within the current music scene, candy cigarettes, and his own podcast, War and Drink. Don’t miss his album release party for The Mourner’s Manual this Saturday, February 7th, at The Royal American.

Local Done Right

A_Fragile_TomorrowThis past Wednesday I visited Charleston’s Pour House for a night of local music from musicians Matt Megrue, Logan Venderlic and A Fragile Tomorrow. The Pour House is an amazing music venue that has it all:  huge patio, snappy and sassy bartenders and an eye for great musical talent.

Matt_MegrewMatt Megrue of Loners Society kicked off the evening with some laid-back guitar strumming that set my whirlwind day at ease. He captures your attention with great songwriting and smooth stage presence. Stay tuned for a more in depth post on LS’s album, King City Sessions.

Logan_Venderlic2Logan took the stage next and this was my second time seeing him, you can read about it here. Mr. Venderlic debuted a new single, “Shakin’ and Swayin'”, a great edition to his set list that will get you moving. Even the delightful drunk man next to me compared the tune to something that belonged in the movie Pulp Fiction.
We will take that as a compliment… 😉

A_Fragile_TomorrowA Fragile Tomorrow is a foursome that blends together the best sounds of pop and rock. Comprised of Sean, Dominic, Brendan and Shaun, this band of brothers has toured all over the United States as well as Europe. They represent our little seaside town well and cannot wait to hear more from them.

Logan_VenderlicThanks for the picture, Logan. Matt and AFT, you’re next!
