If you were to categorize bands based on how long they’ve been around, Max Indian would be a toddler, I guess. To continue the metaphor, they would be a toddler who paints excellent watercolors, reads Machiavelli, and tutors eighth graders on the weekends.
The band’s sole release, “You Can Go Anywhere You Can Do Anything,” dropped in December of 2008 , and everyone who has had the good fortune of hearing it has been pining for more ever since.
After releasing the record — themselves, mind you — the band beat a path around the triangle that included a live performance on The State of Things, a headlining night during the Troika Music Festival , a headlining night at N.C .State’s Fridays on the Lawn Concert Series, and a number of live shows that left a trail of satisfied and eager fans in its wake.
Solicit the opinion of anyone who has seen Max Indian, heard one of their songs, or even heard someone else talk about them, and the response is always the same. These exceedingly catchy, down to earth, warm, and rusty compositions will work their way into your inner ear, buy a nice piece of land, and set up shop. Don’t worry, though. The freshness doesn’t wear off, the melodies are top notch, and the lyrics will stick.
Max Indian will take the stage for night one of Double Barrel Benefit 7 on Friday, February 5 at The Pour House following The Light Pines,Veelee, and Bellafea. Say WHAT? If you miss this, well, I guess you think you have a good reason, but I would seriously question your priorities my friends.
