Nashville rock band All Them Witches, who are currently touring in support of their latest album ATW, performed recently in Louisville, KY. Having amassed a loyal following over the past 7 years, the band brought a lot of fans out on a Tuesday night, performing to a packed house. Drummer Robby Staebler, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charles Michael Parks Jr. and guitarist Ben McLeod are all incredible musicians, showcasing their respective talents throughout the evening. Each member showcased their talents through solos and long instrumental segments during their set, which kept the crowd upbeat and in high spirits. Although Parks sang on many of the songs, the band jammed for much of their set, energizing the crowd and eliciting a lot of cheering and applause, with many of the fans staring on with giddiness and excitement. Parks chatted a bit with the crowd throughout the evening but kept talking to a minimum during the band's 90 minute set, with the band focusing mostly on their playing. With moody and ambient lighting, great music and a upbeat, electric energy throughout the venue, it was a really amazing set.
All Them Witches is currently touring with LA rock band Plague Vendor. Part punk rock, part rock and roll and 100% fun, Plague Vendor was the epitome of a good time on stage. Singer Brandon Blaine was a powerhouse on stage. Dancing and engaging the crowd for the band's entire set, he often stood at the edge of the stage, holding his mic stand into the crowd to lead them in sing-alongs and got into the crowd to sing amongst the audience members. They got the crowd dancing and the energy flowing, ensuring that everyone was ready for All Them Witches. It was a really great night of music.
