With the Gamecock football season starting Saturday, of course parties are happening around Columbia and Lexington. At those shows you can boogie to great rock and country music, including a show with former American Idol contestant Clay Page.
But the upcoming week has more than tailgates for your live music fix. A plethora of rock, Americana, metal and cover bands are playing in the Midlands.
The State caught up with a member of Easy Honey, which is playing a Gamecock tailgate party at Columbia’s Market on Main Saturday.
Contact the venues for concert times and prices.
See below for the show listings.
A chat with Easy Honey singer and guitarist Selby Austin
Easy Honey is playing a USC Gamecock football tailgate. What’s your expectations?
We are excited to see USC in football season. We have played Columbia a few times, and it’s always rowdy! We expect passion and a seriously good time.
If you’re talking to someone who’s never heard Easy Honey before what do you tell them you sound like?
Easy Honey is rock! We have been called “love rock.” With influences from the 60s and 70s, as well as the present day and 90s.
What’s the Easy Honey song that you see a live crowd start moving to? The song that gets them thinking “this band is great.”
Our song “Moncloa” always gets the crowd going. It’s a song about loving in another language.
