The Weeks, a soulful rock band from Jackson, Mississippi, took the stage at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival on an unseasonably cool afternoon. I had never seen the band before, but had done my research and was familiar with their music. The band is made up of twins Cyle and Cain Barnes (vocals and drums), guitarist Samuel Williams, bassist Damien Bone, and Admiral Collier on keyboard.
The band performed many of their hits for the eager fans as well as some songs that have yet to be released. True to their style, the new songs presented a good mix of mellow and energetic tunes. Lead singer Cyle exchanged kind words with the crowd which made the show feel more intimate.
The Weeks is playing with Deer Tick on Saturday, August 23rd at Metro. Get your tickets HERE!
