The guys in up-and-coming Southern rock band Atlas Road Crew are living the rock ‘n’ roll dream, which as we all know, can really be something of a nightmare. “We’ve had run-ins with the police in almost every state between here and New York, gotten hit by a bus in Athens, Ga., partied until the sunrise, played for four people, and played for 4,000 people, and we’re just getting started,” says drummer Patrick Drohan. The Columbia-based Atlas Road Crew has spent most of December working on a follow-up to their recent — and rockin’ — self-titled EP, produced by Hootie’s Mark Bryan. In February, Atlas Road Crew will be heading out to the AAA Sunset Sessions in Carlsbad, Calif., a trip they’re hoping will score them some major-label love. “Essentially, we are playing in front of a big group of people whose ears and opinions can get your music in front of a much, much larger audience,” says Drohan enthusiastically. —Kalyn Oyer WEDNESDAY
