Velouria Records will present a concert fundraiser for Adam Furtado on Friday, July 18, at The Cellar Door in Visalia. In early May, Furtado was the victim of an attack while taking out the trash behind Velouria Records on Main Street in Visalia. All money will go towards helping him pay his medical bills while recovering from his injuries.
Three local bands, foot of feathers, Ocher and Slow Season, will be showcased that evening.
Visalia’s foot of feathers has been playing the Valley steadily for the past 10 years. Their sound is stuck somewhere between 60s pop and indie rock. If you like the Beatles, Badfinger, Big Star and Built to Spill, foot of feathers may be right up your alley.
Visalia natives, Ocher deliver an updated slant on loud 90’s influenced indie guitar rock, often times compared to the Dinosaur Jr. Ocher cites trips through the mountains and skateboarding as major influences on their songwriting.
Visalia-based, hard-rocking Slow Season makes you want to bust out your Zeppelin and Grand Funk records and sport the denim bells you’ve been stashing in the closet. Slow Season has been sweating up and down the state and will soon be breaking eardrums in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas and Alabama when they tour in August.
The benefit starts at 9pm. The Cellar Door is located at 101 W. Main St. in Visalia. The price of admission is a donation to Adam at the door.
