This is the first time I heard of the band “River” (Sam Weber, Evan Hillier, and Marshall Wildman) when I heard they were one of the bands opening for Man Made Lake, I was excited to see them perform tonight at Logan’s Pub.

I like not reading too much about a band before I first photograph them so I can get a “first hand look” when they play and I was pleasantly surprised to see that each band member can easily play each others instruments – switching in-between the bass, drums, electric guitar, keys, etc. They drew in the crowd with some awesome hooks and feeding off the energy from the crowd and each other.  It was a good performance!

They released The Conflict Lost EP in December of 2010 which is availble for free download here.  Their follow up full length release Light Up to Burn Out, is set to release during the summer of 2011!

I can’t wait to see what’s next for these guys and hope to see these guys play again soon!

You can check out their Facebook page here and here.
