PAYETTE BREWING CO. PRESENTS RX TREEFORT WARMUP PARTY WITH NEW MADRID IN-STORE FRIDAY, MARCH 13!

newmadrid-pr3-72dpiPayette Brewing Co. presents the Treefort Music Fest Warmup Party featuring New Madrid live at The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.) at 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 13. We’ll be serving free Payette Brewing Co. beer for guests 21 and older with I.D. starting at 6! As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages. New Madrid is performing at Neurolux later that evening and we have tickets for sale at the store!

ABOUT NEW MADRID

newmadrid-cover-72dpiFrom just south of the Appalachian Mountains, in the rolling hills of Athens, GA., comes the roaring young four-piece New Madrid. Following the critical acclaim of their 2012 independently released album Yardboat, the band signed with Normaltown Records and promptly began work on their sophomore album Sunswimmer.

Recorded during a cool, rainy July, under the direction of David Barbe (Deerhunter, Drive-By Truckers), the aural landscapes forged in Sunswimmer become almost palpable. Combining reverb-drenched vocal harmonies, soaring underwater noise and floating, meandering melodies, the sounds don’t exit the speakers as much as they condense and hang in the air like the humid Athens summer that birthed them.

THIRD RECORD EXCHANGE SECRET TREEFORT IN-STORE CONFIRMED FOR SATURDAY, MARCH 28 (2PM)!
