Smart Bets: Antique Firearms

In the couple of years since local indie-rock outfit Antique Firearms landed on the WNC music scene, the band has kept busy. Concerts, record releases and, at the end of December, wrapping up a new music video. The band shows no signs of slowing down in 2014. "There are a lot of big plans," lead vocalist and guitarist Bradan Dotson tells Xpress. "We just locked down multiple sets for this year’s Floyd Fest, which we're extremely excited about. We're also in talks with several other festivals of various sizes. We're in the process of writing our third album. Recording starts next week. Release date is still very much up in the air, but we're not rushing this one." In the very near future, they play The LAB on Friday, Jan. 10, at 9:30 p.m. It's going to be "a high-energy, intimate party not to miss," says Dotson. "We'll be debuting a lot of new material from the upcoming album. We're bringing in our friends Opposite Box from Chattanooga — these guys are one of the most fun groups you'll see." American Gonzos also perform. $7.
