Artis—Naples is shining the spotlight on the local music scene with its concert series Live & Local. Concertgoers are invited to take to the dance floor as the Daniels Pavilion is transformed into a lounge, with light bites and a full bar serving partiers throughout the night.
On October 24, local band Fake Problems will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. A mash up of surf rock and indie punk, this four-man set has come to encapsulate the soul of the Naples’ indie scene. With vocalist Chris Farren on guitar, Casey Lee also on the six-string, Derek Perry on bass and Sean Stevenson bringing it together with drums, the Southwest Florida natives are constantly evolving their sound, a unique recipe with a dash of Authority Zero, a pinch of the Decemberists, and an undercurrent of Conor Obrest, all while flavored by 1960s beach rock, making for one of the best shows in town.
The October 24 show is fresh on the heels of the quartet recording their fourth album, a two-month project with producer Ted Hutt out in Los Angeles (the same cat who worked on their third album, Real Ghosts Caught on Tape). Thursday’s performance promises to be a special one, with a set list full of new material ready for the Artis crowd.
- Tickets cost $10 per person, which includes one cocktail.
- Doors open at 7 p.m.
