Thee Legendary Rockin Prophets turned Radio into a rock ‘n’ roll revival tent.
Every time The Irreverends get back together for a show, I’m there. They have the kind of dynamic songs and urgent delivery that command a room. The band’s first show in 2 ½ years found them playing their first new song in, well, even longer. I like where this is headed…
Despite playing numerous shows with bands I’ve seen multiple times over a span of many years, I somehow never saw Preacher Roe. I’m still baffled by this. Well, that’s all in the past. I finally got to take in a set from these no-frills rockers at Radio to kick off the month. Phew.
Hanging out with the Roy Sludge at Radio seemed like a nice way to end a vacation.*
* It was.
I don’t get to see Reverse nearly enough. No one does. We need to fix this. These guys are too good.
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.
OldJack at Radio is comfort food for my ears.
I’m becoming a big fan of Slowdim’s dreamy pop. Everything about it just sounds right. Sometimes it’s that simple.
Brother Fight are only a couple of shows into their existence and they’re already making some big noise.
The Lights Out aren’t afraid to take chances. This is a band that covered Queen this past Halloween and did “Bohemian Rhapsody” in its entirety. Stripping back their usual big rock aesthetic into a compelling semi-acoustic set probably seemed like a walk in the park after that. Good stuff at Radio last Friday…
