Avers Rocks Johnny Brenda’s!

On a cold and windy night, Avers from Richmond, Virginia rocked the stage at Johnny Brenda’s after a solo performance by Bradford Bucknum of Oldermost from here in Philadelphia. Avers is composed of bassist and vocalist Alexandra Spalding and Adrian Olsen of HyperColor, guitarist and vocalist JL Hodges of Farm Vegas, guitarist Charlie Glenn of The Trillions, guitarist James Mason of Mason Brothers, and drummer Tyler Williams of The Head and The Heart.


With a full house and an energized crowd, Avers created a great rock fusion psychedelic sound with influences from blues and classic rock. The lights really played into the psychedelic sound as they danced around the venue. The Richmond natives put together a talent packed band and showed off versatility as band members switched up instruments to feature a different person for each song. Hodges’ soothing vocals were pleasing to the ears and a great contrast to the low, folky vocals of Spalding.


With memorable guitar riffs and a general chill vibe throughout their set, Avers maintained a memorable atmosphere. While humble and grateful, they still looked and sounded killer. You can listen to their single “White Horses” and other songs here.
