After starting the night at TT’s, we made our way over to Union Square for some of the heavier stuff. We arrived at Radio just as the Buzzcocks meets Black Sabbath riff barrage of Devil On Horseback was getting started. Those guitars got a workout.
Devil On Horseback can riff with the best of ’em. That’s exactly what they did at Bands For Babs.
This is my first time seeing Devil On Horseback since they were reborn from the ghost of Auto Interiors. Despite the band member carryover, it truly does sound like a new band. These guys know they have a good slot on a great bill and are making the most of it, winning over a significant portion of the growing crowd along the way.
I run into singer/guitarist Eric Waxwood at Radio the next night (more on that show later) and tell him how impressed I am with their transformation. He notes that even though they’ve played a few shows under the new name, Friday night at TT’s was the first time it truly felt like a Devil On Horseback show.
