Indie music rocks Underground
BY SEQUOI PHIPPS
Three music groups preformed at the Underground on Friday, March 21 for an indie music night. The event attracted fans of students and Fredericksburg locals familiar with the music groups.
My Son Bison, a group of four from Philadelphia, began the night with their unique tunes.
“Those four guys had a very different sound; they even did an entire song in Spanish,” said Catie Morton, freshman chemistry major.
Also from Philadelphia, Liz & The Lost Boys preformed their different and intriguing songs. The array of instruments used, including a harp and their poetic lyrics drew in the interest of the crowd.
The University of Mary Washington’s very own Save the Arcadian closed the show, however, bringing energy, jokes and immense musical talent. All three bands are good friends, which made Save the Arcadian’s last show at the Underground a fun evening for both the audience and the performers.
Save the Arcadian had the chance to joke and laugh with their fans throughout the night. They performed crowd favorites, songs from their new album and a cover song.
“I like how they engage the crowd, and their onstage banter is fun!” said Kelsey McPeters, freshman psychology major.
My Son Bison currently has an EP available. Both Liz & The Lost Boys and Save the Arcadian recently released new albums, respectively entitled “Liz & The Lost Boys” and “That Bright Tide.”
