Acid Mind Drainage performing at Evolution Bar & Grill

BUCKHANNON — Upshur County will be home to some fresh local talent in the form of a new band, Acid Mind Drainage (AMD). The band is set to perform at Evolution Bar & Grill on Saturday, February 19 at 8 p.m.

The interesting name of the band was mainly created by lead guitarist, Thomas Wayne, who works as an acid mine inspector. West Virginia is widely known for its coal mine industry, so the name fits well.

Wayne expressed, “It was kind of a play on words and we were really happy with the name since we are more of a psychedelic blues genre.” Other members of the band are bass guitarist Eli Clayton, drummer Jason Dean, and lead vocalist Ian Allen.

Acid Mind Drainage has a new album, which is about to be released, and wants to invite the community to watch them perform. AMD was recorded at Riot City in Morgantown by Tommy Bailey, drummer of the band “Fletchers Grove.”

Upshur County’s Pillage Sound will be helping with sounds for the show. Pillage Sound is a new studio addition found in the Blaxxmith Shop on Main Street; The owners of the Blaxxmith Shop are very close friends of AMD members. Wayne noted, “The community of musicians are coming together in Buckhannon – everyone is connected. We are really excited to perform and are looking to promote our new album.”

The show at Evolution on February 19 is a free light show where the community can come dance and enjoy themselves.
