Atlas Road Crew 

When: Thu., June 6 2013
Price: $5

rock and roll band from Columbia, 9 p.m.

It’s hard to write about a band like Atlas Road Crew. Their influences are plainly obvious: a little Skynyrd here, a little Hootie there, a lot of Black Crowes, like, everywhere. Currently based in Columbia and wildly popular along the University of South Carolina’s fraternity row, this Cola-town quintet is planning a move to the Holy City following a June East Coast tour. The band’s music is steeped in Deep South twang and humidity-induced ease, while its loose and jammy vibe is built on gold-standard blues-rock riffs. But there’s a reason classic rock is called classic rock. Atlas Road Crew’s biggest strength is the familiarity of their classic rock odes, but the group ditches the standard retro-ready vibe for a bar-band-made-good attitude and plenty of soulful and exuberant jams. In the end, the music that Atlas Road Crew makes is as ruggedly comfortable as a worn-out CofC T-shirt. —Patrick Wall
