Just Announced: Futurebirds at Fox Theatre | 2/20/12

Z2 Entertainment is proud to present FUTUREBIRDS at the Fox Theatre on Monday, February 20th.  Tickets go on sale Friday, January 27th for $5.00 in advance and $7.00 day of show.
 
Hailing from the bohemian college town of Athens, Georgia, Futurebirds play laid-back country-rock with an atmospheric, psychedelic twist. The group began turning heads with the release of a self-titled EP, whose backwoods harmonies and pedal steel riffs helped earn a contract with Autumn Tone Records. With the label's help, Futurebirds booked time at Chase Park Transduction -- one of Athens' most renowned studios, with a client list that includes R.E.M., Drive-By Truckers, and Jason Isbell -- and recorded Hampton's Lullaby. The debut album was released in August 2010, and the group issued a follow-up EP, Via Flamina, while touring in support of both releases.
 
2011 has been a large year for Futurebirds. The Athens outfit has released two well-received EPs; road-dogged the nation with bands such as Widespread Panic, Drive-By Truckers, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Gary Clark, Jr., J Roddy Walston & the Business, Thomas Hardy, and grass giraffes; rocked to rave reviews at Bonnaroo Music Festival and Austin City Limits; and generally simply had a swell time—though brains and livers might scream otherwise.
