Nashville Sounds: Philmont is the musical guest for Faith Night Saturday

May 30, 2009

May 30 – Philmont (4:30 p.m. concert, 6:00 p.m. game)Official Website

Philmont

There are many delightful contrasts running through rising pop punk/rock act Philmont. The Charlotte, North Carolina-based band named itself after a small town in New York because “we just thought it sounded cool,” and the title of its earnest debut EP, Oh Snap, is only there to give these guys an excuse to speak that silly phrase on a regular basis. But such lighthearted randomness is balanced by Philmont’s buzzworthy creative strengths, spiritual focus, and a do-it-yourself work ethic that snaps everything perfectly into place.

“We have a desire to motivate kids in the same way we needed motivating when we were teenagers,” concludes singer Scott Taube. “People tend to go through the motions instead of going deeper. We want to connect and take them in that direction through an ongoing dialog. That’s what our music and our live shows are all about: audience participation.”

The Faith Night festivities begin an hour and a half before the game each faith night
