Blvck Hippie

Memphis, TN

Blvck Hippie is a Sad Boy Indie Rock Band from Memphis, TN, tryna show Black kids they can be weird too. Fresh off a six-week tour culminating in an electrifying Audiotree performance lead guitar and vocalist Josh Shaw is joined onstage by Casey Rittinger on drums, Celest Farmer on guitar, and Tyrell Williams on bass. Hitting the stage with energy and authenticity, the band’s live performance brings you along for an emotionally raw experience that’ll remind you exactly why you’ve missed shows so much. Blvck Hippie is recommended if “you’re a fan of The Strokes but like your songs a little more moody” (from The Strait). Shaw credits Kanye West and Kid Cudi for inspiring him as a Black artist, pushing him to always make something different. Blvck Hippie’s “VHS” inspired rock pairs with Shaw’s dark, brooding lyrics, drawing on themes of escapism, loneliness, and grief to create the Sad Boy Indie Rock songs of your dreams.
