The Aftershakes Return with Show at Epicure Café

By Linc Bradham

We’ve all been wanting for more live music since the pandemic began, and NoVA-based The Aftershakes are answering that call by coming back on the live circuit with an in-person show this Saturday, August 14, at 7 p.m. at Epicure Café in Fairfax, VA. Learn more here

Drawing on inspiration from many of the late 90’s and early 00’s alternative and nu-metal groups such as System of a Down, Incubus, and Disturbed, The Aftershakes are a fun, exciting, and energetic group that will get your blood flowing no matter what.

Says The Aftershakes’ Charlie Maybee,”While we [The Aftershakes] are most conveniently categorized as an alternative rock band, our music brings together a mix of punk, grunge, blues, and metal influences to create versatile and high-octane sound. With lyrics often inspired by speculative storytelling, socio-political commentary, and critical theory, it’s a sound that promises to shake listeners to their core.

He adds, “This show will be our first full gig since the onset of the pandemic, and the thing we’re most excited about is the friends we’ll be sharing the stage with. There will be some poignant, folky satire from Daughter Theresa and Lava Flw will be bringing electronic, indie beats. It’s going to be an awesome night with an eclectic range of high-energy music!”

There you have it. This is not a show to be missed. If you’re anywhere around the DMV tomorrow, head over to Epicure Café for a tight-knit and well-arranged assortment of exciting genre-bending music with The Aftershakes and special guests Daughter Theresa and Lava Flw.
