Rising from the ashes of the former indie-rock band Pela, We Are Augustines was born. Performing along side Zach Williams and the Bellow and The Boxer Rebellion, We Are Augustines rocked the house at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on April 13, 2011. Wearing his finest Indiana Jones hat, Billy McCarthy and company played a solid and emotionally charged 40 minute set. An acoustic version of Tom Petty’s “Even The Losers” brought the already adoring crowd to it’s knees!
You can download some free tracks on the official site of We Are Augustines. Highly recommended. I met lead singer Billy McCarthy after their awesome set and he was very cool. By that point in the night, he’d taken off his hat, but he rocked it for our photo together. That is rock and roll, folks! See it, after the jump.
