The Influence and Honor By August

VA Beach quartet The Influence calls themselves "post-flannel rock." That probably means they sound like a time capsule from 1997 (see their tours with Jimmy Eat World, Silverchair, and Finger Eleven) but it's much more fun to speculate on other possible meanings. Also featuring Honor By August, a sprawling alt rock quartet from DC.
