Saturday, October 26, 2013 Smith's Olde Bar welcomes the return of The Higher Choir and Radiolucent. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, The Higher Choir has a flair for storytelling. Cranking out good ol' fashion country-blues-rock, their music is deep in Southern Folklore. Their latest album, "Steeped In Southern Tradition" explodes with big, full sounds and even darker story lines than their well-received debut "Half-Way Home." Recordings aside, it's the live show that make this band a not-to-be-missed feature. Dueling guitars, amazing rhythm and a front-man who resembles every character from Duck Dynasty, (not to mention his soulful style of vocals) are guaranteed to entertain. Be on the look-out for their third release due out in early fall.

Listening to Radiolucent, you might get the impression that not much has changed down in Dixie since Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers, and Jerry Reed made their way across the Georgia clay. And the truth is that not much has changed in all these years, at least not where Radiolucent is from. The whiskey still warms you, the collard greens still taste just like grandma's, and the classic records continue to prick at the soul, same as the day the tracks were cut. You'll find Radiolucent adhering to this rich heritage like a time-honored family recipe.
Forming in 2007, Michael Mann, Andy Appling, and Mack Chambers set out to add their own chapter to the story of southern music. Around their tales of heartaches and hard times, they crafted a high-octane brand of traditional southern music that's planted firmly in the present. After rounding out the line-up with Mike Cowan, they began to plow their way across the North Georgia countryside, playing dive bars, honky tonks, and fairgrounds, all the while amassing a dedicated following that continually pack their hometown shows in Athens, Georgia. Currently the band is writing and recording their debut full length record, due out in late 2011, and building their regional fanbase with their live shows, solidifying their place as one of the south's premiere rock & roll bands.
