Charleston by Philly

Long Miles

Born in Philadelphia, groove-based rock/funk/reggae sextet Long Miles is making a splash in Charleston this year. Bandmates Brett Haenn, James McNally, Sam Morgan, John Shields, and Adam Williams are CofC students who split their time between Philly and the Lowcountry.

On Thurs. Dec. 2, they celebrate the release of a six-song mini album titled A Philadelphonic EP with a set at Eye Level Art (103 Spring St.) at 8 p.m. They recorded it this year with acclaimed studio man Chris DiBeneditto (G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid, the Movement) at Philadelphonic Studios.

Admission for the all-ages show is $10 ($8 in advance). DJ Smoke opens.
