Archers of Loaf (2012)

Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Chapel Hill's favourite sons are reunited and coming to Sled Island! I was at their one and only Calgary show. It was in the summer of 1996 but I still think about it a lot. I wish I could beller (yell and holler) like Eric Bachmann. I wish every band's bass player was a high stepping, one man bouncy castle like Matt Gentling. If I knew how to make my guitar soar like Eric Johnson, I could probably move out of my parents basement. Archers of Loaf helped shape what indie rock was capable of. Don't miss this twice in a lifetime opportunity.
