On a sweaty summer night, Chapel Hill, North Carolina is striking its regional music history from the books to make room for the Galactus of the scene, The Alcazar Hotel.
The Alcazar Hotel is made up of four pure-bred rock heroes who grew up in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama…places where the dirt smells different, the heat feels different. They’ll all tell you, with no sense or irony or conceit, their songs are all hits.
And then there is the live show...Simple music, hard and fast, that's like hitting yourself in the teeth with a bottle of Wild Irish Rose. It wakes you up. Adam, Brad, and Ed back William like cheese graters on the waxy build-up in your ears, shredding behind a spry frontman who will jump off a pool table and land on his knees and not wince. If you get a glass smashed out of your hand, it's not an accident, it's part of the show.
Live music doesn't always need to be kept on the stage. Look: It's tough to think of any other witty similes to describe these guys when "in-your-face" pretty much sums it up.
They’re called The Alcazar Hotel and they are just dying to meet you!
