I’m such a fangirl of Richmond, Virginia-based psychedelic shoegaze-y garage pop six-piece supergroup Avers; when I found out they were coming to the Music City to open for J. Roddy Walston & The Business, I jumped up and down and squealed out loud. ¬†Believe it.

I'll be honest.  I kind of have a girl crush on Alex Spalding.

The band is made of members of The Head and The Heart, The Mason Brothers, Farm Vegas, Hypercolor, and The Trillions, which together produce the vibey-est (I know, it’s not a word, just humor me) tunes I’ve heard in long time. ¬†It was guitar nation on the stage, with three members dedicated to guitar, Alex Spalding on bass, and Charlie Glenn on keys, with a guitar strapped to his back, just in case.

Avers’ sound is tight, their chemistry together is palpable, and their talent is undeniable.
