Ace from The Early November stopped by the iHeartRadio studio at 106.5 the End in Charlotte. He played four acoustic songs, "Digital Age," "In Currents," "The Smell of this Place" and "Ever So Sweet." Check out the videos below!
The Smell of This Place
Ever So Sweet
Soul Asylum achieved success in the 1990s with albums like Grave Dancers Union and Let Your Dim Light Shine. Some categorize Soul Asylum as a "one-hit wonder" but, they had hits with other songs like Misery and Black Gold. But, Runaway Train, and its music video, proved to be one of the biggest and most influential songs of the early 1990s and it won a Grammy for "Best Rock Song" in 1994.
Front-man Dave Pirner and lead guitarist Dan Murphy stopped by 1065 The End to play a few of their songs and a pretty interesting cover of another one. Check out photos here. Their new album, Delayed Reaction, will release in July.
By The Way
Los Angeles band Dead Sara blasted through Charlotte with The Used in late May of 2012 and they left a very lasting impression. Emily Armstrong (vocals, guitar) and Siouxsie Medley (guitar, vocals) tore up the Fillmore stage, but earlier in the day a stop by 1065 The END's iHeartRadio Charlotte studio with Chris Null (bass) and Sean Friday (drums) proved to be just as powerful. This acoustic performance of "Test On My Patience" and "Face To Face" showed the versatility of a band that is clearly driven towards success.
Watch for them on the Vans Warped Tour 2012, which hits Charlotte July 30th.
