Sugar Glyder's new video, new bassist

Charlotte-based rock four-piece Sugar Glyder were tentatively scheduled to celebrate the release of its new album earlier this month during a show at Amos' Southend. The record has been pushed to 2013, but the show was a memorable one regardless as it was bassist Emily Aoyagi's last with the band. The concert drew upwards of 400 fans, which is quite a feat for an independent local outfit. The band released the above video a few days after the show.

It's currently on tour with fellow Charlotteans HRVRD and Junior Astronomers, which I imagine is serving as quite an impressive ambassadorial package tour for the Queen City while traveling the East Coast. The tour is the first with brand new bassist Robby Hartis, who was an integral part of two of my favorite Charlotte bands My Captain and the Lights, Fluorescent. The tour ends tomorrow at New York City's Bowery Electric.
