October Spot Night Preview

Oct. 2: Grizfolk
Make your way down to The Spot to see Grizfolk on Thursday, Oct. 2 and your soul will thank you afterward. The band just released their EP “From the Spark” which features their most famous song “The Struggle.” Here’s something cool about this group—two members (Fredrik Eriksson and Sebastian Fritze) are Swedish, while another member (Adam Roth) has roots in the Deep South. Consequently, they have a unique, global sound. Some of their songs give off a cool, alternative feel, while others sound remotely folky and Southern. Grizfolk is a can’t-miss, and they’re going to be huge soon, I just know it.

Oct. 9: Jeremy Messersmith
Jeremy Messersmith is an indie-pop musician based in Minneapolis. His first album, “The Alcatraz Kid,” was released in 2006, and its soothing, melodious sound definitely put him on the indie pop radar. He has opened for the president of the United States (at a rally), and he’s performed sold out shows through his “supper club tour” all over the country. This artist is sure to provide a great time for those of you who seek a mellow night in the middle of a crazy week.

Oct. 16: Oh Honey
The indie group Oh Honey is from Brooklyn, NY and comprised of musicians Mitchy Collins and Danielle Bouchard. They are a fresh new face in the industry and the most exciting boy-girl duo since Matt and Kim. Currently, they are touring with the famous band American Authors, who stopped by CWRU last year for Spot Night. Before you attend Spot Night, I highly recommend YouTubing their song “Be Okay.” If that doesn’t motivate you to come see them live, then I don’t know what will.

Oct. 23 Panama Wedding
Panama Wedding is indisputably one of my favorite bands right now. This band has promptly established itself on the Alternative charts, and their famous single “All Of The People” is one of those songs that I can listen to on repeat without getting annoyed. But don’t take my word for it: The song has over 850,000 plays on Soundcloud, and the band has garnered thousands of fans nationwide. Panama Wedding is one of the most promising new alternative bands in the scene, and a can’t-miss for Spot Night.
