This is a past event.

Sol Fest w/ Sol Driven Train & Friends 

When: Sat., July 30 2011
Price: $15
Local rock band Sol Driven Train celebrates the release of a locally recorded EP titled Watermelon. This is the second night of a two-night CD release party, with Asheville’s Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Columbia-based rockers Josh Roberts and the Hinges, and a slew of local acts, including Shovels and Rope, the South Carolina Broadcasters, Danielle Howle, Firework Show, the V-Tones, and others. 8 p.m. “We started planning this two-night event last summer, even before we started doing demos for this recent studio session,” says Timmons. “We always play the Windjammer every summer. We tried to get a bunch of regional and local bands to join in. It’ll be a huge weekend.” Watermelon’s title track is a tight, funky, mid-tempo ode to Timmon’s favorite fruit — “and a wink to the sensual nature of summertime,” as he puts it. Fans may be surprised by some of the Latin-tinged, country-based, glam-rock, and vaudevillian stylings scattered among the rest of the songs. Visit and for more.
