(Sometimes we hear someone is coming through town and get a little too excited, everyone goes out!)
IZP PROWESS 03042016 amos-9// better way for a couple of local bands to March Fourth other than on March 4th? That happened this past Friday in Charlotte. Quoted by Scott Roby on his Official Facebook Page,” We launched our new band last night at Amos’ Southend! Here’s raising one final toast to 21st Century Goliath. It’s been real, but I must be movin’ on. With that said, Pröwess was born! Fiftywatt Freight Train also from Charlotte held nothing back as they got the crowd head banging and screaming for more! Something Clever who also are from Charlotte and performed second on the roster introduced their new drummer,” Justin Tyme.” Opening this show, The Black River Rebels joined in all the way from Greenville, SC.

They definitely made their drive worth while and put on a hell of a performance. All of the bands were amazing!! Also quoted by Scott Roby ( Guitarist for Pröwess ) on his Official Facebook Page: prow·ess – (prouəs) – noun DEFINITION: 1. skill or expertise in a particular activity or field. [in our case rocking and rolling] 2. bravery in battle Hence Pröwess. Umlaut is a nod to Lemmy who passed while we were building it.

Also, as some have noticed, we launched on March 4th. Or March Fourth. March. Forth. 🙂 So I say to you now, March Forth to a local venue and support these and the so many other musical artist near you!
