Many students know Taylor Down Under as a place to study and meet with friends, but for Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran, it holds a greater significance.
The two met while playing a concert in TDU and have been making music together ever since. In 2015, Gorman and Cochran formed Illiterate Light after their previous band dissolved.
Since then, they have been working with different record labels to create recorded music, and have been touring major cities. They also have performed occasional pop-up shows using a bicycle-powered generator for a more environmentally sustainable set-up.
The pair says they are working on an album and have a 10 day tour coming up with a three performance kick-off at Harrisonburg’s own Golden Pony. Be sure to check out Illiterate Light at the Golden Pony tonight at 10 pm.
