Artist Spotlight: Nightmare River Band

Attention alternative punk junkies!

There’s a new band in town sure to titillate your ear buds.  They’re loud and raucous, and they don’t give a f**k.  Their music is about life, love, and drinking, and their sound is edgy, yet refined.  Who are these mystery artists you ask?  Well my friends, they call themselves The Nightmare River Band, and they’re here with one purpose–to rock your face off!

The Nightmare River Band is Brooklyn-based quartet with an indie spirit and a signature punk sound.  These self-proclaimed gentlemen have crafted a uniquely bold brand of eclectic punk/pop that–despite the band’s roots–is more backwoods barbecue than NYC loft party.  Their latest release, Call The Cops!! is loud, in your face, and super catchy.  Standouts include, “To The Sea” and “Picture Frames & Photographs” as well as the more subtle, “Where Do We Go”.

NRB is currently on tour, playing a slew of shows across the south and would love to see you come out and support. You can visit the band’s MySpace for a complete list, but here’s a few to get you excited.
