Five Times August

Release Date: 2008-01-23

A new model for up-and-coming artists, Five Times August is the unsigned solo project of 24-year-old Dallas native Brad Skistmas. Despite a massive national grassroots following, Skistmas still embodies the independent, DIY ethos that he started with. His sophomore effort, Brighter Side, will turn heads this March, brimming with pure acoustic melodies. Call for price, 8pm, Jack’s Patio Bar, 2950 Thousand Oaks, (210) 494-2309.
