The final night of the 2015 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble prelims began with the intricately arranged, passionately performed, emo-tinged sounds of New City Ghost.
Zip-Tie Handcuffs’ Rumble set was a tornado of ferocious, melodic punk rock with dissonant riffs and three part harmonies. They take Prelim Night #5.
Murcielago just smoked TT’s with the heaviest, most rifftastic set of the Rumble so far.
The Dirty Looks busted out a set of exuberant indie tunes to keep Rumble Prelim Night #5 bopping along.
The Nate Leavitt Band just gave one of the most gut wrenching Rumble sets I’ve ever seen.
You want some honest to goodness prog metal? Protean Collective have you covered.
I’m still not exactly sure what I just saw, but it was mesmerizing. Dirty Bangs take night four.
Loud, melodic, chord-based garage rock with a punk attitude and solid songwriting is A-OK in my book. Dan Webb And The Spiders killed it.
Mercury On Mars shook away any remnants of my Day Of Rest sluggishness with an absolutely thunderous set to open Rumble Prelim Night #4.
The 2015 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble has been pretty great so far. Here are a few random thoughts on the first three nights of the preliminary round.
