"Indie hard rockers The Milestones played DC9, 8/26, with more shows and an EP to come."

Looking for new, versatile jam that makes you jump, dance, and lose your mind? Try on indie hard rock band The Milestones for size; it’s a good fit. They’re a brash and fun quartet from Baltimore with a distinct and diverse sound all their own and their live performances are unmissable.

Their performance at DC9 on 8/26 did not give this writer’s eardrums a break and infected the audience with an energy that didn’t quit, even after the band started tearing down their kit. Their set featured excellent guitar fades and mind-blowing drum solos. These guys know how to interact with the audience given their fun banter and focused showmanship, so make sure to catch them live or miss an experience worth remembering. They have an EP, Honey, coming out later this summer and some shows in NYC this weekend. Leftfield, 8/29 at 8pm and D’Herde East, 8/30 at 2pm. -Jonathan Goodwin - The Deli

"Five Things We Learned From 9/5"

The Milestones.

We absolutely loved meeting those guys for the first time, and they even impressed us when things went wrong (that was quite the fun jam we heard no less than one song into their set as the band’s leader broke his guitar string). We couldn’t have asked for anything more from them, and we can only hope they had as good of a time playing as we did listening. For more on the band, you can check out their Facebook page here, or, for that matter, there’s this nice little article that you can read here. We’d love to have them back someday. And we’d love for you all to hear them. - Frederick Playlist

The foundations of The Milestones were initially laid by guitarists Alex Wandres and Chris Metz. The two had been playing together since college, wriiting songs, refining their craft, and jamming as much as they could with whoever they could. In time, they realized they had quality, fully written songs that just needed vocals, which prompted Alex to start practicing singing. A year later they saw a show at a bar in Frederick and it was there that they met Tad and Ian (drums&bass) playing in an acoustic band. Alex showed them rough recordings of the music, they all decided to get together and jam and in June 2014 The Milestones were formed.

In a year, The Milestones have played over 39 shows in Baltimore, DC, and NYC. They have opened for The Ataris and have headlined local festivals to crowds of over 4500
