Ticket Giveaway - The Features - Brillobox - 11.12.11- Show Preview

Next Saturday, 11/12 The Features will be appearing at the Brillobox. Hailing from the home of country music, Nashville, TN, the band plays something other than the old time twang. Their brand consists of 60's brit pop infused with psychedelic rock. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual just email us with your name to

The band is touring behind their new LP Wilderness out on Kings of Leon label Serpents and Snakes. It has been getting rave reviews from places such as Spin Magazine and The Chicagoist. The band also did a video
for each song off the album explaining the tune and what it means to them.

From their press:

Coming into the studio straight away off the road gave The Features a full head of steam, which meshed with their desire to capture some of their on-stage power. The goal, Pelham says, was to make a record that sounded, “like the band was playing live in your living room.”

The result of the month-long sessions is as painstakingly crafted as it is full-on, with Pelham’s distinctive songcraft expertly matched by the band’s sonic inventiveness. “Big Mama” and “Rambo” had already been staples of The Features’ live show, while tracks like the swingin’ psych-pop opener “Content” were spontaneously created during the pre-production rehearsals. Other highlights include the prog-fueled “Golden Comb, with its dynamic tempo changes and multipart arrangement, and the howling rocker, “Kids,” which brandishes the Tennessean band’s native gift for their own version of meaty, big beat boogie.

Doors are at 9:30p and show is scheduled to begin at 10p. Ticket can be found here
