Afton produces concerts nationwide and provides online resources to help artists succeed. We do this because we are artists and we were forced to provide these solutions for ourselves. Our company was founded in 2004 to book shows for bands that our staff members were playing in at the time.
Beneath The Wheel
Our Genre Is Fucking Rock
Heads Without Dogs
"The Lowly Lights" is the first album by Heads Without Dogs. Once the songs that found themselves on this album began to take shape, Evan Schmidt started to look around for other musicians to help deliver the vision he had that would become Heads Without Dogs. Members Olivier Piroue, Austin Perkins and long-time friend Britton Woolums quickly jumped on board. After months of rehearsing for "The Lowly Lights," the album began to take a 'menacing punk sound that isn't afraid to experiment.' The result is an aggressive, and at times noisily melodic, record that dabbles in quick tempos, intricate jams, country/blues infusions and even doo-wop. Lyrically the album is described as a semi-autobiographical 'inner-monologue' that Schmidt developed during a 'darker' part of his life. The themes are tightly tied together with motifs and and the dark ideas expressed are hard to not have fun with. The recurring ideas expressed on "The Lowly Lights" help the album run like a narrative.
Heads Without Dogs have crafted a uniquely energetic live show. With all members having had the advantage of playing with previous groups, the energy generated on stage is explosive. The band's music is full of peaks and valleys that allow the guys to have fun building up, riding through and tearing down riffs and phrases. Always a varietal set with dancing, jamming and general movement, Heads Without Dogs shows always include something new and exciting.
The gentlemen are currently working on multimedia accompaniment for "The Lowly Lights" and following up with a the release of both a Single and EP this year.

Sunflowers In Straitjackets
We are Sunflowers In Straitjackets. We are a Colorado based Garage Rock Band consisting of: Alex Graff (Vocals), Shawn Michael (Guitar), and Ryan Radford (Drums). We are currently working on our debut album titled "Uni-Verse". The prevailing themes of the first record will be Love, Philosophy, Politics, and the power of Imagination (among others). These ideas are set against psychedelic garage rock stylings influenced by such bands as The White Stripes, Audioslave, Incubus, Oasis, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Soundgarden, The Beatles, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, and Muse but maintains an originality all our own. We have around 20 original songs complete and another 20-25 in various stages of development. In the coming months, we plan on playing locally in Greeley, the greater northern Colorado area, Denver, and any other place that will have us. We'll keep updating any and all future shows.
*It is important to note that we will be recording some tracks in studio within the next 2-3 months but until then we are making due with uploaded recordings from an iphone. Using such remedial technology doesn't provide us with all the tools we need to showcase the songs fully but it gives a nice idea of what we're all about. We'll keep you all up to date on the ongoing studio developments as well. Thank you for taking the time to check out the world we're building and we hope you like it! Love and Peace to you all :)
Adaira is a band that has been put together through some hard work and dedication. Bio to come..
