Triad Arts Weekend: July 12, 2013
Red Clay Saxophone Quartet
No Nonsense Comedy
Winston-Salem based garage pop band The Sweets may have only started writing and recording music in December 2012, but that hasn’t stopped them from building up quite a discography. Brothers Zach and Justin Romeo set out to record and release one EP a month since the band’s inception, and so far they’re keeping up the pace and then some. In this brief time they’ve also hooked up with not one, but two independent record labels. Bleeding Gold Records out of San Diego will be releasing their music here in the states, and across the pond in Liverpool their tunes will be distributed by Edils Recordings. While the brothers do attend colleges hundreds of miles apart, in Asheville and New York City to be exact, they’re here in Winston-Salem this summer and will be playing some live shows before they return to their studies. The Sweets were interviewed by Triad Arts Weekend’s Technical Producer Eddie Garcia. You can catch them playing their hazy guitar jams in Winston Salem at Krankies Coffee on August 2nd. Their music is available for streaming and download online, and you can get yourself a copy of their split cassette "Just the Dudes" as well.
