From the venue:

Kings Ransome started years ago as Vannare when future rock icon Porter Dowdy realized his dream of holding a guitar every day for the rest of his life. He teamed up with longtime friend, shampoo model candidate, and bassist Davis Huggins to do this band thing. Funk/fusion drummer Matt Malphrus joined the gang with a charming smile and a stellar high school football career. Not long after - enter guitarist Leo Santana. With hair that contains more rock’n’roll than most people have in their whole body, Leo upped the band’s sound and image. The guys created a kickin’ EP, but the singer quit during recording. Luckily Porter knew a guy. Trey Duncan had quit his job and was trying to pay the bills as a solo artist. Porter called him the day he told his girlfriend he needed a band to boss around, and the rest, as they say, is history. The guys chose the name Kings Ransome and started planning their rock’n’roll takeover. They recorded two EPs and plan to rock stages from SC to L.A. to Tokyo to Berlin. The band prides themselves on always having the best hair in the room and creating a modern sound with a vintage appeal. Kings Ransome is for the girl who sits in class with her earbuds, for the dad could never see a concert when he was a kid, for the guy who lives for live music at his favorite bar, for the rockstar reminiscing about his early days of sleeping in his truck. KR calls on the past, reaches to the future, and delivers a kickass show right now. Kings Ransome is your band.

Buzzard Cult

Buzzard Cult is a three-piece Southern Grunge/Punk band based north of Atlanta, Georgia. They draw on a variety of genres ranging from Grunge, Punk, Southern Rock, Stoner, Americana, and more. Elements from all those genres can be found in Buzzard Cult’s first demo, Shope Lake Sessions. From the loud, fast intro of “No Turning Back”, to the melodic guitar and bass riffs on “Lazy Mind,” Buzzard Cult’s Shope Lake Sessions is raw, uncut, and DIY. With gritty distorted guitar, fuzzed out bass, and blazin’ drum beats Buzzard Cult brings a new breathe of life to Rock n’ Roll.

“Grungy and punky it is indeed… And for some weird and possibly insane reason it reminded us of the Belgian scene… A harder heavier version of dEUS, Zita Swoon and those crazies” - Stoner Hive
