Where: The Southern
Cost: $7 Advance / $10 Day of Show
Born from the mind of songwriter and frontman Hicham Benhallam, the Charlottesville-based band Post Sixty Five has been described as both moody and romantic, feverishly tugging at the heartstrings of its listeners with fragile guitar lines driven by a thunderous rhythm section. Formed in October of 2013, Post Sixty Five brings Benhallam's devastating images to life with dizzy, delicate melodies and disarmingly earnest performances that weigh heavy on the heart.
Their debut EP, “I Think We’ll Be Okay,” explores spectrums of longing and desire in the style of indie darlings Death Cab for Cutie and The National. Recorded and produced by Blue Sprocket Sound owner Chris Jackson, “I Think We’ll Be Okay” wrestles with the troublesome, childlike sadness that threatens to tear us down as we grow up.
