    For The Music Productions presents: Count To Four & Hometown Heroes With: The Benefits Of Breathing, The Devil In Love, & Matthew Ruhl Monday, March 25th $5.00 cover (gas money for the traveling acts) Doors open at: 6:00pm Count To Four: https://www.facebook.com/counttofour Count to Four is an aggressive pop-punk band from South Jersey / Philadelphia in the vein of The Wonder Years. With a strong focus on musicianship, Count to Four delivers unrepetitive, complex and catchy guitar riffs. Combined with unforgettable, singalong lyrics and melodic vocals, the band creates a mature, yet altogether familiar sound to the pop-punk genre. Hometown Heroes: https://www.facebook.com/HometownHeroesIL Just a few dirty, broke kids from the suburbs of Chicago, IL doing what they know best. Take a listen. With: The Benefits Of Breathing: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Benefits-of-Breathing/167797639589 The Benefits of Breathing breathed its first breath (say that really fast) in July of 2012, in the wood-paneled, drop ceilinged confinements of a basement in a house off Broadway in the village of Lancaster NY. We believe that music and the album should be regarded as its original intent as an art form, the music world an art gallery, the album an exhibit and the songs the individual paintings. Like a painting, we want each song to set a mood. We want each song to take the listener to a different place. We want the listener to hear colors and see the sounds. We want each song to be memorable. We want to think outside the box. We just want to be different. We want to make music interesting, innovative, and fun again. We want to experiment, record unconventionally. We want to interact with the audience. We don't want to be just a band, we want to be an experience. We want to make a real connection with the listener and vice versa, like close friends. The Devil In Love: https://www.facebook.com/thedevilinlove If I had to describe the band in one word i was say Methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamyl...serine. But I don't normally do that. I am at the core a one piece band with several musicians revolving in and out of the group. I want to say we sound folk but I'm not sure if that is correct any more. I wish I knew what genre to say. I would say take a listen and then let us know. Matthew Ruhl: https://www.facebook.com/matthewruhlmusic To hear Matthew’s music is to live through his picturesque stories of life’s ups and downs right along with him. There are many common haunting themes that resonate throughout his work, and act as documentation of his struggles with constant uprooting due to life’s twists and turns. Listeners are drawn to Matthew’s heart-on-his sleeve approach and are consistently moved by his vivid tales of life, loss, and love that foster a universal understanding. Over the years, a more complex sound has emerged via bits of classic acoustic work mixed with rock driven breakdowns, and Matthew’s signature powerfully emotive lyrics. Matthew, like all artists, hopes people will understand his art and appreciate it.
