ICYMI: FLIGHTS OVER PHOENIX
3/9/18

Sayers Club's alt-rock regulars, Flights Over Phoenix, returned for their second show of the year a couple weeks back, accompanied by opening act Mermaed. After independently releasing their debut EP, Where I Comedown, in 2017, the still-unsigned trio has been making a name for themselves among locals. 

The performance showcased compelling new music and fan favorites, including “Middle of the World” (see below), to a packed house. The impressive eight-song set was propelled by lead singer Keith Longo, who captivated a crowd that soon began echoing Flight's catchy choruses.

In an effort to pursue music full-time, Longo—originally from Boston—moved to L.A., where he met Chris Santillo through a Craigslist ad. The band’s missing link, Jordan Nuanez, was later introduced by a mutual friend. Drawing from a variety of musical influences, they compose “the love child of stadium rock and modern-day pop, raised on '90s alternative values,” as they put it.
