Dead Confederate headlining at Chop Shop tonight (3/10/12)

Posted By on Sat, Mar 10, 2012 at 8:06 AM

DEAD CONFEDERATE First, the cause. This evening is billed as the Uncle Sam Jam, or a Night of Giving Back, and is sponsored by the Echo Foundation. The locally based organization brings world renowned humanitarians (Elie Wiesel, for one) to Charlotte to galvanize the locals into democratic action of the communally uplifting variety — what Rick Santorum would consider Godless socialism. Anyway, this night of raffles, giveaways and music features the Athens-based Dead Confederate headlining. If you like your Southern rawk with a heavy dose of psychedelic shoegaze, then these gents — with their fondness for reverb and a recent turn toward the more melodic — could be your cuppa. All money raised will be donated to The Footsteps Program funded by The Echo Foundation. With the Houston Brothers, T. Hardy Morris and the Outfit, and DJ Brad Pressley. $10 (Free to foundation members). The Chop Shop.
