Former Substitutes frontman Prabir Mehta takes his new backing band in a different direction; incorporating violin and double bass, Goldrush's music adds folk, country, and classical music influences into Prabir's power-pop sensibility. At points they sound like Lou Reed collaborating with Hank Williams Sr. Then, a couple of songs later, they'll throw a Beethoven string quartet breakdown into an upbeat rock n' roll tune. There's a little bit of everything here, mixed together in a decidedly unique way. Goldrush will be performing at the RVA Music Fest on Stage Two of the Main Event on Sunday September 11.
