Pray For Polanski kicked of Rumble Preliminary Night #5 with a set of fierce, angular riffs and intense vocals. Their songs feel very personal yet strangely detached. I was caught pleasantly off-guard, much like guitarist Aviv Rubinstien was when he tripped over his amp. Aviv came up smiling and so did I. Once again, The Rumble has turned me on to a cool band.
Preliminary Night #5 Winner: Bow Thayer And Perfect Trainwreck
