Motel Glory w/ Shehehe, Jeremy Ray & the Carolina Highway

Motel Glory & Real South Records is proud to present "Let 'em Live," Motel Glory's third full length album and their label debut.

Motel Glory has been championing the Rock Hill music scene for the last ten years, and has become a musical foundation for an entire region of South Carolina. With a southern rock sound that swings between country parties and punk dives, they’ve got the soundtrack to your Saturday night ruckus and your Sunday morning hangover.

Extra Chill describes Motel Glory as music "that you could throw on at a party filled with punks, indie kids, pop enthusiasts, and even some scarcely-existent ska fans, and you’d probably catch most everyone bobbing along to the beat."

Their album release show will be supported by Athens superpunks Shehehe, along with hometown singer/songwriter Jeremy Ray & his band The Carolina Highway.

Doors at 7, $7

Ritt Momney, Ofir and Loathing, Michael Soft, Shane T and Secret Guest

All ages show!

Ritt Momney is the solo project of 19-year-old Salt Lake City native Jack Rutter.

Beginning as an indie rock band comprised of high school friends, the project became a personal outlet for Rutter after his bandmates left on Mormon missions and his girlfriend left for college. In his bedroom, he began writing, recording, and producing his upcoming debut LP, entitled “Her and All of My Friends,” in which Rutter grapples with loss, loneliness, and a drift away from Mormon culture.

Local support from
Ofir and Loathing
