Faerie Ring
A self-described heavy rock band from Evansville, Faerie Ring embraces the lost art of the riff. The four-piece act’s slow, thunderous sound has filled venues across the Midwest, including a July tour that puts them in Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, and Ohio.

Photographer Alex Morgan formed Xanderwolf in 2019. With Chris Koyle on guitar, Jason Rager on drums, and Nate Windberg on bass, the punk-infused rock band released its debut LP in 2023.

A Modest Proposal
A Modest Proposal works so hard to provide opportunities for independent musicians with their music festival, Fuchsia Fest, and DIY shows, that it could be easy to overlook how talented the band is. The Evansville band blends alternative, post-hardcore sounds into something uniquely its own. Its new album, “Let Them Smell Their Flowers,” was released on July 5.
