It’s very possible that you have heard Brad Skistimas’ voice crooning and wooing you on any number of your favorite television shows in the past few years. Skistimas, the man behind the moniker Five Times August, may be seen as a pop culture whore by non-believers for his songs frequent appearances in television shows from MTV’s The Hills to VH1’s A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. But one thing you cannot argue against is his savvy as a businessman. “After selling over 100,000 digital downloads without a record label, getting 40 song placements from one album on various popular television programs, and becoming the first unsigned act sold in Wal-Mart stores nationwide,” he has certainly made a name for himself. Fans of Dashboard Confessional and Secondhand Serenade will really enjoy the emotive musings of this acoustic troubadour. You’ve heard him on TV, now hear him live at Der Rathskeller.
