VIDEO - The Red Hot set from Archie Powell & The Exports at THE OUTLAW ROADHOW

Recorded live at The Bowery Electric 
New York, NY 10/18/13

ARCHIE POWELL & THE EXPORTS have made an early career of grafting prismatic power pop with a dark, nearly sardonic look at the world those songs were born into. Far from a protest singer, Archie is a blue collar musician elevating the masses - with one tale of sweet misery after the next. The son of a violin prodigy who played in the Chicago Symphany Orchestra before landing as a permanent member of Milwaukee’s orchestra. Archie started playing guitar at 11 and writing “awful” songs at around 15. Immediately following college, he and keyboardist Ryan started the Exports, bassist Adam joined after they recorded their first EP. They then rounded out the lineup with RJ on drums and Alex on guitars. The rest as they say, is history..

SCORCHING - The band played what was probably the most scalding set at this year's Outlaw Roadshow, tearing the roof off the Bowery Electric (playing songs both old and familiar and new) and then jumped into their van and headed off into the night. It was an epic set and a huge finale. Watch this video but don't get too close or you could get burnt!
