On Saturday, Jan. 23, Oxford, Mississippi-based altrock/punk band 1 Last Chance will perform at The Garage Coffee, Music & More.
In a time when contrived pop, hip-hop and country completely dominate the mainstream music industry, 1 Last Chance holds on to an unyielding belief: that music should actually mean something. It should not be background noise; it should not be trivial; and it should not be insincere. Instead, it should be powerful; it should be emotional, and most of all, it should be real.
Based out of Oxford, MS, founding members Jacob Hampton and Brandon McDaniel have been crafting the band’s music since 2010. After releasing their initial demos to the public in 2012 and receiving a strong positive response in return, they started taking on the region with their live shows, employing an energy and stage presence that is unrivaled. Since then, they’ve shared the stage with the likes of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Emery, Framing Hanley, Taproot and many others.
Having been inspired in their youths by groups like Green Day, Rise Against and Jimmy Eat World, the band blends elements of alternative rock, punk rock and progressive rock into a style that is completely unique to them yet still familiar enough that listeners connect with it wholeheartedly.
Show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $3 in advance or $5 on day of show and can be purchased online at TheGarageTX.com or at The Garage, 1110 N. Main St. Tickets are required for all attendees aged eight and up; ages seven and under are free.
