ROMAN CANDLES, DONNER DEADS, THE LOCAL ODYSSEY
December 18, 2021 | 8:00 pm$10
Imagine if the ’90s alt-rock boom didn’t stagnate into blurry third-generation copies of grunge (Hello Spacehog!) or spiral into evolutionary dead ends like rap metal. What if alt rock had continued to develop in imaginative ways that kept pace with contemporary musical developments? Charlotte band Roman Candles is doing just that. The five-piece crafts melodic satisfying rock that carries listeners through surprising twists and wraps songs in a lyrical conceit that’s part street poet/part pugilist.
