Local music promoter, show book-er and occasional Flyer contributor Roger Barrett has been working overtime lately.
Barrett has been announcing shows under his ‘On The Map‘ umbrella at venues all over Fayetteville recently, and there are seven such shows featuring touring artists coming up this fall.
The series kicks off with Canadian band Ought from Montreal at Smoke & Barrel on Oct. 6. The band, whose 2014 debut More than Any Other Day made pretty much every album of the year list that year, just released a new record back in February.
On Oct. 16, metal-y instrumental band Russian Circles from Chicago will perform at George’s with Fotocrime and locals, Terminus. They released a live album last year that kills it. Listen to that to get an idea of what to expect.
New York indie band Guerilla Toss will be in town for a show on Oct. 21 with locals The Phlems and Whoopsi. Check them out here.
After that, Austin sad song singer-songwriter Molly Burch plays Smoke & Barrel Nov. 8, “regret-pop” band Sun June plays George’s Nov. 13, experimental metal band The Body (featuring former Fayettevillians Chip King and Lee Buford) will be George’s Nov. 23, and Norman, OK indie band Broncho returns to town for a show Dec. 14 at George’s.
The full list of shows, including ticket links, is below. For a bit more information, visit the On The Map Facebook page.
