When: Fri., Dec. 22, 9 p.m. 2017
As a member of the local music scene who’s been actively playing music here since I moved down here from Baltimore almost a decade ago, I feel like I’ve done a good job in getting to know the music scene here; it’s sort of hard not to get to know everyone after just a few years of gigging, working in coffee shops and just being an all around townie. However, somehow local garage/folk/indie/punk/pop band The Offbeats escaped my headphones. Was I not invited to a show? Was I busy doing drugs behind Web House when it was at the end of St. Mary’s (you know, where Faust is now)? The answer is probably. And after listening through F, their 2013 EP, I’m sad and embarrassed I didn’t know about these dudes earlier ‘cause they’re fucking great.
