CONCERT

OCT. 6

prozacdreams.bandcamp.com Pablopalooza, featuring Daddy’s Beemer, Apricot Blush, Tom Angst, Bleach Bug, J.S. Terry, Prozac Dreams, and Wallpaper

Radio Room, 110 Poinsett Highway 7 p.m. | $10 (over 21)/$12 (under 21) (Price includes access code for multi-band sampler collection)

For the record, there is no person named Pablo whom the Pablopalooza music festival was created to benefit. Pablo is the name that the festival’s cocreator, Wes Heaton, gave to his Daddy’s Beemer home, a house show venue. But over time, those shows grew into a collective of musicians from the Upstate that became known as The Pablo Generation. “It’s based in Clemson, but it involves some Greenville artists as well,” Heaton says. “Having everyone together helps us better schedule the shows so our audiences aren’t split up. It’s also helpful because there are certain people within the collective who have skills to help everyone out. I do some management and planning. Other people are better at graphic design, so they can create the bands’ art, and other people are better at handling social media, so they can post about people’s shows. Everyone has their own role.” The seven-band Pablopalooza bill, which ranges from the psychedelic folk of Wallpaper to the punk-rock of Prozac Dreams, was created to help fund The Pablo Generation’s efforts. “It’s to help us help every band out at once,” Heaton says. “It would fund things like a single website or tape and CD duplication to distribute all our artists.” —Vincent Harris
