Project Lovemore, a nonprofit student organization at ASU, will host its second annual benefit show this Friday which will feature bands from Jonesboro and Little Rock.
The show is appropriate for all ages and everyone is encouraged to come support the local talent. The entry fee is $5 or two canned goods, which will be donated to Jonesboro's Food Bank.
The members of Project Lovemore are hoping to top the turnout of their last benefit show by introducing local artists of different genres.
Of the bands featured, Tiger$tyle, the headlining band, has the most unique sound. They classify themselves as a mixture of hip-hop, punk, hardcore and jazz, and are known for their crazy costumes and lively stage performance.
The One-Two Punch classifies themselves as a blend of indie and alternative rock, and consists of four ASU students. Although they are a young band, they have already played many shows in the Jonesboro area and have accumulated a lot of fans.
Stories of Shepherds describes themselves as melodic, spirit-filled hardcore. They have distinctive, tough vocals, accompanied by melodic guitars and a variety of fast, solid rhythms. They are originally from Memphis, although most of their members attend ASU. This will be their first reunion show in more than a year.
Morlee, a well-seasoned indie rock band, will be bringing a fresh, lively sound to the stage all the way from Little Rock. They have been playing together for about four years and are led by Amanda Morley's clean vocals. Their lyrics and instrumentation are engaging to the ears as well as the heart.
Noland Gilmore, a solo acoustic artist, will be opening up the show with his smooth voice and mellow style. Gilmore regularly leads worship at First Baptist Church and is known for his spontaneous energy. He will be sure to get the crowd excited and ready for an entertaining night full of great local talent.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. at the ReMix Room, which is located at 777 Union Ave. across the street from First Baptist Church.
