Snug Harbor, at 1228 Gordon Street, invites an act to be an “Artist in Residence” all the Wednesdays in a month. In January, 2013, the artist is Elonzo. The shows are free, at 9pm, and various bands open throughout the month. Here’s how they describe themselves:
Elonzo is an independent rock band based out of Rock Hill, South Carolina area. In the heart of the Carolina Piedmont, they write songs about everyday life: sitting around on the front porch, watching the train go by, loss of loved ones, childhood, their hometown and their dreams. Elonzo’s music represents some of the most classic elements of the Southeastern United States: earnestness, good story-telling, and an awareness of tragedy that never seems too far around the corner. The band’s sound can transform from stripped alt-country to a richer, more expansive vision that reflects the meaningfulness of the ties that bind us together. Mostly, it sounds like rock and roll.
