This weekend at The Loud is almost guaranteed to pack out as Arlo McKinley, Sam Burchfield, and The Mountain Goats are all set to perform in Huntington.

Thursday night belongs to Arlo, accompanied by opening acts William Matheny and Darrin Hacquard. For the uninitiated, Arlo Mckinley is a country music artist from Cincinnati whose soulful voice and acoustic guitar awakens a relatable, gleeful depression in listeners, as evidenced by his number one song on Spotify “This Damn Town” (sitting comfortably at nearly 6.5 million streams).

Friday night is Sam Burchfield and the Scoundrels, supported by opener Corey Zornes of Massing. Burchfield is a folk artist based out of Athens, Georgia, who appeared in Season 13 of American Idol. His latest release, the album “Scoundrel” reads as a tribute to the recreational lawlessness familiar to many Appalachians. Opening act Corey Zornes is no stranger to our local music scene either, as one fifth of West Virginia’s favorite boy band Massing (their “Harry Styles”, if you will).

For nearly three months since the announcement was made, Huntington has been excitedly anticipating the return of The Mountain Goats to the Loud stage this Saturday, February 11th. Known for their powerful, unique lyrical perspective, as well as upbeat melodies that are effortless to vibe with, The Mountain Goats boast nearly 900,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. Opening for the Mountain Goats is Nashville based singer-songwriter Lilly Hiatt, who released a single “Under the Milky Way” in November 2022.

Tickets for these stacked events are on sale now at; Doors for all three shows open at 8pm, music starts at 9pm.

The Loud is located at 741 6th Avenue, Huntington, WV 25701
