Port St. Lucie-based Sweet Chariots are releasing their CD on Wednesday, and giving copies away at Propaganda for a party that will double as a time warp. "Rock and roll 60 years ago" is the band's self-described genre, and the other two acts, Futurebirds and Bananafish, are practically living homages to a bluesier, jam-bandier past.
Athens band Futurebirds managed to find the time to hit up not just one but two South Florida locations (Bardot is the other) on their July tour, and their psyched-out country-fied blues is beautiful enough (just listen to the way the flutes transition into the guitar at the beginning of "Red Top Girl") for a few more. Bananafish's rich, echoing, deep-voiced folk appears to have been recorded in a dense forest - with trumpets - and not in Orlando. Check out the Facebook event page for more information and get there before Sweet Chariots runs out of records.
Futurebirds, Bananafish, Sweet Chariots, Now Breathers. 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 7, at Propaganda, 6 S. J Street, Lake Worth.
