Some fresh energetic music spilled into Smith’s Olde Bar Friday night straight from Athens. Unless you have lived under a rock for the past 20 years (or hadn’t been born yet) you know Athens is all about good music and launching talented artists, like B-52’s, Drive By Truckers, Widespread Panic and R.E.M (just to name a few). With the sound and writing skills like this, TEALVOX should be one of the next emerging bands to come out of this active college town.
Friends since High School, Cody Stalvey (lead vocals, guitar, keyboard) and Mike Meadow (guitar) started this band 4 years ago adding Andy Appling (vocals, drums)and just recently, Bud Evans (bass guitar). Stalvey’s song writing drives the band and while hard to define it is definitely alternative rock with a quirky pop sensibility. His energy is contagious as he struts across the stage, with an almost “spontaneous movement” that you gotta love. They recorded their 1st CD, The Next Room Over, in 2010 and there is talk of them getting back in the studio soon to record their Sophomore CD. Check them out on iTunes, Spotify and, of course, Facebook and Twitter.

Fear Factory at the Masquerade
Fear Factory destroyed the Masquerade on September 4th with an amazing set. Fear Factory was one of the first bands to pioneer industrial metal. It was great to see them back in Atlanta after a long absence. Fear Factory is on tour promoting their new album Genexas, which lead singer Burton made sure we pronounced correctly (ha). Their show was great and I found myself singing along while I took pictures of the band. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact I could hardly SEE the band. Once again the Masquerade didn’t bother to turn up the stage lights for the bands. This of course makes it very hard to photograph. Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed watching this band play some of my favorite tunes live like Shock, Edgecrusher, Damaged, and Demanufacture!
