The Dog Apollo and Rare Creatures live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon
June 9, 2018 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am| $5
The Dog Apollo
“The Jacksonville band does a sunnier take on stately, Brit-influenced, early-millennial indie rock. Their well-crafted, heart-rich music is sonorous, ringing and romantic.” – Orlando Weekly
“One of the most exciting new acts in our scene.” -Movement Magazine
“I loved the sound of these guys. Another promising act blossoming from our very own Florida, I would definitely keep my eye on these guys.” – The Dropp
“Watching a rock band perform on stage while their fans lose themselves to the music around them is an experience everyone should try at least once, and with such an expansive sound, The Dog Apollo delivers such an experience.” – Void Magazine
Formed initially as an experiment in diverse songwriting, Rare Creatures has grown into a full on rock spectacle. Their sound navigates between heavy synth rock and melodic acoustic rhythms seamlessly from song to song, switching it up around every corner. Influenced by bands from Alt-J to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, with some ethnic spices sprinkled in for good measure. The group is fronted by Coleman Sawyer on vocals and guitar, with Hugh Camp on bass and synthesizer, Keller James on lead guitar, and Logan Crank banging the drums. Recordings are forthcoming, and will be released in late 2017.
