Real Fake Doors and More Open Up Lola's
Erie's own Real Fake Doors join The Happy Alright, Rare Candy, and Tyler Smilo at the Avalon Hotel
Wednesday, Mar. 4
Erie's own Real Fake Doors join The Happy Alright, Rare Candy, and Tyler Smilo at Lola's Lounge in the Avalon Hotel in another prime production of The Andromeda Agency.
The pop punk quintet has made its rounds opening countless gigs over the past year, playing off of its debut EP, 11th and State, with the most hype coming from the EP's single "Falling" and its accompanying music video. But now Real Fake Doors are getting their shot at headlining, with a new music video for the upcoming single "Waiting" dropping the day before the performance.
On tour from their home in Dallas, are The Happy Alright, on the road in support of their 2019 album Thank You Very Much. Since forming as a pop-punk band in 2011, each of The Happy Alright's releases have moved further away from their initial sound and more towards the pop-rock end of the spectrum, culminating in Thank You Very Much.
Hitting the road with The Happy Alright is Rare Candy. Rare Candy is the acoustic solo project of the bassist of Chicago-based pop-punk band Belmont, Alex Weiringa. Many of Rare Candy's tunes could be pop-punk anthems in their own right, were he to plug into an amp and go on stage with a full band, but other tracks, like his latest release "Want You to Know," take a more acoustic ballad approach.
Opening the show is acoustic folk artist Tyler Smilo. Smilo has a deep discography of eight albums since 2014, with the latest, The Future Looks Mighty Ole Timey, having just arrived on Feb. 13. In 2018 Smilo teamed up with several local musicians under the name Smilo & the Ghost to release the very heartfelt folk rock album Ghost Writers. — Tommy Shannon
