Achilles Wheel Celebrates Live Album Release with a Live Broadcast From The Center
Achilles Wheel is celebrating the release of a new album with a special show that will be broadcast live from The Center for the Arts on Friday, August 28, 2020, at 7:00 pm pacific time. To enjoy the free public livestream visit thecenterforthearts.org to RSVP.
Achilles Wheel is a California band that blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots Rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia. Last year, they captured multitrack recordings while performing at venues across Nevada County including Chief Crazy Horse Saloon & Grill, The Nevada Theatre, and The Miners Foundry Cultural Center, as well as a show in Fairfax at 19 Broadway. The new live record is a culmination of these recordings. While no-one could have predicted the summer of 2020 and its effect on live music we feel this record will bring back a small feeling of what the live music experience holds.
Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. The harsh light of the modern world does not diminish their idealism as we struggle to live free and have a good time… and in the end – hopefully make a difference. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times, the here and now.
“For fairly obvious reasons, I hear from a lot of so-called jam bands. Non have
impressed me the way Achilles Wheel did. They certainly can jam- Paul’s rhythm
guitar is first rate and Jonny’s lead can make a stone dance. But what so many jam
bands lack AW has in spades, namely, truly excellent song – writing, primarily from
Paul but from other members, too. Lyrics and melodies both – these are songs you
remember – and will.” Dennis McNally, Grateful Dead Publicist and Author
