We’ve got a band for that.

Syracuse rockers Bridge Under Fire hit Albany on Saturday, September 27 on a weekend long celebratory release of their new EP, I’ve Got a Guy for That, available in classic L.R.S. Records style on glorious 7″ vinyl.

The crowning jewel of L.R.S.’s first 10 albums released since 2012, the new EP is the long awaited follow up to Bridge Under Fire’s last killer release, the Bridge Under Fire / The Slaughterhouse Chorus split 7″ (LRS001 Jan. 2013) and their full length album Why Wait? (May 2012).

No strangers to the world of Built4BBQ, Bridge Under Fire has included tracks on both the 2013 Appetizer sampler (B4BBQ004) and the new Entree comp (B4BBQ007), on which they revealed the track “Previously on the West Wing”,  a sneak-peek at what awaits your earholes on the new 7″ – more of that patented melodic punk slathered in classic Turley screamin’.

Join us in welcoming Bridge Under Fire to Albany’s #1 underground punk house, the Shred Shack on September 27. Joining them at the Shack are 518 pop-punk wiz-kids Boxer Brown; Syracuse indie rockers Department, bringing their recently released EP, Conversation; aaaand the world premiere of Girth Control! Shit-ska/punk from the righteous dudes who brought you The Slaughterhouse Chorus and Public Access.

$5 cash, 7pm sharp, BYOB, and always remember, “don’t be a dick!” Check out the Facebook event page here, if that’s your style. Need an address? Ask. built4bbq@gmail.com

Henry’s Rifle slays Muddy Roots.


Built4BBQ’s own Henry’s Rifle recently put some serious miles on, heading to Cookeville, Tennessee to slay the crowd at the venerable Muddy Roots Music Festival, where he shared a bill with everyone from The Sonics to the Legendary Shack Shakers. Roots-goers got a monster solo set and an early shot at HR’s brand new “Barroom Weather” album, which you’ll be hearing a whole lot more about very soon. Keep an eye out, big things a-rollin’.  Catch the conquering hero in his return to Albany on September 11 at The Low Beat, holding down a killer lineup featuring the End Men, Charmboy and Sun Voyager!

Henry’s Rifle hits the road.


Summer is giving way to fall, but it’s always barroom weather for Henry’s Rifle. Built4BBQ’s one-man wrecking crew has been working round the clock to finish up his long-awaited debut album, and the time is nearly upon us. Barroom Weather is 12 tracks of the man doing what he does best, from rock ‘n’ roll rippers to country weepers, with an all-star cast of characters backing him up. After almost a year of production, this one’s been a LONG time coming, and we’re awfully stoked to be able to share it with you. Stayed tuned for a taste of what’s in store and an official release show announcement… but in the meantime, Henry’s Rifle will have copies on the road this week, as he hits the highway for the venerable Muddy Roots Music Festival in Cookeville, TN! Skip work and head south, it’ll be worth it. 

We also just printed up some brand-new Built4BBQ t-shirts! Hand-made as always, supplies are limited… so get your hands on one today at the BBQ store!

Urban Pioneers stake their claim at Pauly’s Hotel August 7


Don’t ya miss this one! Pauly’s Hotel hosts a wild night of real deal roots music Thursday, August 7 with Urban Pioneers & Henry’s Rifle!

With a lifetime of music between them and half a decade of music played together, Liz Sloan and Jared McGovern have been the backbone of some of today’s greatest underground roots bands. Currently both members of Jayke Orvis and The Broken Band, the pair have shined light on many other acts such as Bob Wayne & The Outlaw Carnies and Filthy Still.

Most recently, Liz and Jared have been touring the United States and a healthy portion of Europe as the old-timey Americana act Urban Pioneers. Liz’s awe-inspiring fiddle combined with Jared’s claw-hammer banjo and storytelling lyrics recall the pure Appalachian sounds of yesterday, light-heartedly summed up by the band as “hillbilly music”.

Now with Guido Greaserag on upright bass (we believe that to be his Christian name), the three-piece stick to their motto, “on tour now, on tour always”, as they trek their way through the Northeast in support of their new album, Addicted to the Road.
See Urban Pioneers perform live Thursday, August 7th at Pauly’s Hotel (337 Central Ave Albany NY) with Built4BBQ’s own Henry’s Rifle. Doors 8pm. Admission is $5.
