Is it possible for a band to completely win over a room in 10 minutes? Dirty Bangs did. Their brief set at The Sinclair for the 2015 Boston Music Awards was all that is good an holy about the church of rock ‘n’ roll.
Capping off a night where the music ruled all else, Dirty Bangs played a set no one at TT’s will soon forget. Their music comes from the heart. Their Rumble Semifinal performance bared their soul. Keep a close eye on these guys.
I’m still not exactly sure what I just saw, but it was mesmerizing. Dirty Bangs just owned it. They connected with everyone in the room on an individual and communal level. It was uplifting. It was heartbreaking. It was a rock ‘n’ roll moment. That’s how you Rumble. Dirty Bangs take night four.
The sound reverberates for a moment within the walls of TT’s before being absorbed by the mass of people huddled before the stage. Can they feel it? The sound? The moment?
This is a celebration for the release of Static Of The God’s new EP, The Midnight Fires. There are a full range of emotions on display tonight. There is certainly the mutual appreciation between band and audience, but there’s something heavy in the air, as well. It all comes out in the performance. Music as therapy. A weight lifted. Beat beat beat.
