Over the last few years, Casper’s music scene has really taken off. Due to a huge influx of local bands, it’s now harder to find a day when you can’t catch a live show somewhere in our city.
One of the side benefits of this is the fact that we now host bands from all over the world. Because of our penchant for live club shows – as well as being perfectly located for routing purposes – promoters have made it a regular stop on band’s itineraries.
Today, we had the pleasure of hosting a phenomenal group from Liverpool, “Familiar Looking Strangers“. While they’ve hit the mid-west a few times in the past, they’ve never been this far west in their travels. Hopefully, we have them convinced that we are a must-stop location in their future US tours!
Now, you may be asking yourself “Why in the hell would you have them play at your desk when you’re surrounded by studios?”
We thought it would be a pretty cool concept. Bring in a musician, sit them in an office setting, and let them do their thing. Check out the video, visit their webpage and Facebook, and support the artists!

Familiar Looking Strangers grew up in the true English home of rock and roll, Liverpool, England. They played the Liverpool scene heavily in their early years including performances at the birthplace of The Beatles, The Cavern Club. 2014 sees the band continue their British invasion of the United States which started with a few select dates back in 2011. The Strangers have now set their sights firmly on the U.S. market. The combining of Americana Roots-Rock, Blues and British Pop has stirred up a very unique sound created by these five lads from across the pond. The band has been hard at work on new music set to be released in 2014. Don’t miss Familiar Looking Strangers as they return to America for a 2014 national tour this summer. FLS really come to life on the stage, performing with so much energy and passion that it’s hard not to love it.
