“This will be my last show in town. My adios and farewell to this great town,” he wrote in an Oct. 22 Facebook post
Earlier this year, Mechem played his final show with Crowfield, and recently, he formed a new band, the Flood, albeit one who’s time will be short lived. “This will be the first and last show with the Flood. It’s a shame too because these guys are going to sound great,” says Mechem.
The singer-songwriter has lived in Charleston for eight years and he says it’ll be hard to leave the place where he met his wife, heard his songs on the radio, and played concerts in front of thousands of people.
How does Mechem feel about taking the Pour House stage one last time? “It’s really a great way to go out,” he wrote. “Pour House was the first legitimate music venue in town to book Crowfield as a headliner. So, it’s kind of like the bookend to the beginning and end of this chapter for me.”
Tyler Mechem and the Flood, along with The Tartlatans and the Bushels, will play the Pour House, Fri. Nov. 1. The show starts at 9 p.m., and tickets are $8/adv., $10/door.
Friday’s Pour House show is Tyler Mechem’s last as a Charlestonian. Last week, the former Crowfield frontman announced that he’ll be moving back to his home state of Indiana at the start of the new year.
