Local artists take part in a benefit performance for Tapestry Health
Here's the Line -Up!
Old Flame is a machine that kills fascists. Formed in the mire of the 2017 presidential election with one unshakable intention: to make their art as an active form of resistance and never cease. Born in the DIY basements, garages and fields of Western-Mass, the indie-rock band spins grit, unapologetic politics, and honey-rasp vocals into a psychedelic punk-rock nostalgia, whose edge is a howling afterglow of raw blues.
With one debut EP released, “Wolf in the Heather” (2017) and another one, “Guilt Hooks” looming on the horizon. Old Flame’s debut single, folk-rock strain “Smoke Show,” has been well-worn on the airwaves of WMUA and Valley Free Radio. As one indie-music blogger said: "Love this sound, retro and brand new all at the same time. Toes the line of vintage & psych rock. Addictively good." -Ear To The Ground Music
Old Flame is comprised of valley native Emma Ayres (Emma June), Sam Perry (Dios Trio), Ken Birchall and Nate Mondschein (The Rooks).
