The Deadfields
The Deadfields Anybody remember the great, unheralded, passion-fueled Athens band Five Eight? That's where Deadfields lead singer Geoff Reid found some inspiration to jump into music. In addition to Five Eight, known for their blistering R. E.M. -meets-Cheap Trick, Reid found inspiration in Neil Young. Next thing you know, Reid put together the Deadfields, a band that rocks off those influences and creates their own. Now, they're releasing their sophomore effort, "Often Wrong, Never In Doubt," and giving away 50 free copies of the CD. After tuning up the famed Albino Skunk Festival and doing what they do best – winning fans with their acoustic rock that critics have compared with Reckless Kelly and even the Eagles. The quintet has shared stages with Drive-By Truckers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and even Roberta Flack. And now they're sharing their stage with The Piedmont Boys, whose rompin', stompin', PBR-soaked alt-country-palooza actually headlines the show. A show that likely will sell out.
