The evening kicked off early with Mothers out of Athens, Georgia. When Mothers is up first on a 4 band bill, you know this is going to be one hell of a show. The band released their debut LP, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, to much critical acclaim earlier this year, taking the indie rock world by storm with Kristine Leschper’s inward looking lyrics, backed by the talented band playing experimental rock that moves the soul. Their debut has landed at, or near the top of many lists for the best albums of 2016 so far, including our own. The LP is phenomenal, and live, they take it to the next level.

Currently touring with Built To Spill, next up was Whispering Wires out of Tucson, AZ. In the last year, no new local rock ‘n’ roll band has gotten under my skin like Whispering Wires. The punk quartet, led by singer/guitarist John Polle, proved to be a potent opener leading onward through the evening.

Tucson’s psychedelic desert punk band Lenguas Largas, who shares members with Whispering Wires, brought the dizzying fuzz to Terminal West. Lenguas will have their new euro release Abba Daddy available. The band had the sold out crowd rocking and ready to go for Built To Spill.

Like they did with Whispering Wires, while Built To Spill came out to prepare up for their set, Largas kept playing on through until the headliner was in tune and ready to begin. It was one long night of music without much of a break, and the crowd wouldn’t have it any other way.

With a career spanning 20 years, Built To Spill released their eighth studio album, Untethered Moon, in 2015, playing Atlanta indie festival Shaky Knees in the same year. Returning back to the city, Atlanta came back out to see the indie legends. The band didn’t disappoint playing a mix of career spanning songs with the latest album and even something new.
