Futurebirds will bring their brand of psychedelic, country-infused rock to the Jupiter Bar on Thursday. “When people come to our show, they can expect a high energy rock ‘n’ roll concert with all their friends,” Carter King, vocalist and guitar player, said. “Everyone can be hand in hand, singing songs with each other.” The band met in Athens, Georgia, and started playing shows at venues like the 40 Watt and the Georgia Theatre. King said Athens was the perfect place to get the band started because of the city’s strong music scene. “It’s the perfect incubator for a baby band,” King said. “There’s a great scene there, and promoters really pride themselves on getting up-and-coming bands on the same bill as headlining acts.” King came up with the name Futurebirds while taking a poultry science class when he was in college in Athens.
Futurebirds have released two albums, “Hampton’s Lullaby” and “Baba Yaga,” along with a couple of EPs. Between releasing their albums, King said the band went on tour, which helped them to play together as a cohesive group. “On ‘Baba Yaga’ we were more like a band operating as a unit,” he said.
