Is it just me or have a lot of great musical acts been paying a visit to our city lately? Tonight we have Liz Cooper & The Stampede paying the Biltmore Cabaret a visit.

Who is Liz Cooper? Who’s The Stampede? What’s the music like? Wow, you really know how to ask some great questions! They are an American three-piece folk-rock band out of Nashville. I would say that the music they play is a nice blend of classic folk-rock with just an ounce of psychedelic music spritz in. Mountain Man, a song of their latest album, has gotten a fair amount of attention; getting just over two million listens on Spotify. While Mountain Man is their most successful this band is so much more than a one hit wonder.

Listening to their catalogue it’s hard to find a song I don’t enjoy. Sure, some tracks are weaker than others but overall their body of work is definitely worth a listen.

Motions is another song they’ve done that’s gotten some love on Spotify; just over a million plays. It’s got great vocals and acoustic guitar, standard things on any folky song, but where this song stand out is the trippy, psychedelic breaks done throughout the song. It sounds like it’s out of another decade, but at the same time has a sort of freshness and newness to it. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Modern Chemistry with Okey Dokey is by far my favourite. The bass and drums backing up her vocals on this track are so simply done but enhance the overall quality of it so much. Add this in with upbeat “Ooos” and “La La Las” thrown into the chorus and we have a certified, grade A, quality song on our hands.

Tickets are on sale for $9.99-$18. That works out to be around $17 and $27 after paying those annoying concert fees. Give their music and listen and see if you think it’s worth the price, but I feel like those tickets are dirt cheap for a band that’s this talented. You can grab those here.

What do you think? Are you going to be heading to the show tonight? Any summer concerts lined up? Let me know!
