After a series of lineup changes (overseen by main singer/songwriter Jonathan Cook) and an actual album release this year (thanks, Lunartik Entertainment), Charleston-based indie-rock band Indeed (a.k.a. “iNDEED”) have decided to call it quits and go out with a bang with a loud “farewell show” scheduled for Fri.

Boulder, Colo.-based quartet Phix, a busy tribute band “celebrating the music of Phish,” have announced a decision to call it quits. After five years and over 500 shows, they’re saying goodbye with a string of U.S. tours, including a two-week run through the Southeast. “We want to thank all of the people who have been coming to our shows,” reads a recent press statement. “We would not be doing this if it weren’t for your support and enthusiasm. And most of all, we want to thank the guys in Phish for the universe of music that they have created. It has been a pleasure and a privilege for us to be able to share in the groove!” Phix’s final Charleston show is Fri. March 2 at the Pour House. See www.phixband.com for more.
