Preachervan

Join us in High Gravity at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Saturday, February 16th from 6pm to 8:30pm for a free show with Preachervan (formally The Georgia Flood).

(RIGHT NOW), three and a half years before the end of the world, rushing in atop a giant (EXPLICIT ADJECTIVE) tornado, the (PREACHERVAN) have arrived, with an album of new songs about (NOUN) and (NOUN). The band is composed of two (WORD FOR REDNECK RELATIVES), reputed to have been conceived in a hailstorm during the largest trailer fire of the century, and two other (DEROGATORY TERM FOR WHITE PEOPLE), both former Jesus impersonators with the Father Hanna Traveling Holy Land Extravaganza—with such divine origins, it is no surprise that the band spends little time, as we say, ‘Finding Their Sound’—they simply create it.

Earleine

Join us in High Gravity at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Sunday, February 17th from 2pm to 5pm for a free show with Earleine.

Born in Clarksville, Tennessee, just 40 miles outside of Nashville, Earleine grew up immersed in musical culture. At 18 she picked up the guitar, and soon began writing her own songs. Earleine made her way to the Blue Ridge mountains in the Spring of 2016 to expand her musical horizons. Genuine and shockingly honest, her songwriting is mixed with poetic lyricism, and dreamy harmonies that seem to lift hard time memories into ephemeral realms. Earleine’s style is Americana music with a swirl of folk, rock, and roots under a blanket of soul.
