Saturday night was quite the night for some quick rain of hardcore. Yes, it was back at the Red 7 and back for some flashes of punishmen. Some good, some bad, and some downright insane. After the smoke cleared The Men came out on top. Fortunately for me (and unfortunately) there was plenty of time between the sets.
If you are talking about the Rogues, then you should be talking about the European Alt rock band and not the punkers from Brooklyn. Give a listen to Carnival below and you can understand why. The bass rhythms and driving guitar remind us of some early Placebo. Lead singer Pearse MacIntyer sounds just a little deeper than Brian Molko, but the influence is there. If you want good driving music, this one works.
We’ll be blasting this ditty while we cruise on down to Austin here in a couple of months for South by Southwest 2010. It’s our first time there and we’re are stoked to go. The Rogues are gonna be there too. While we are packing and planning, we’re going to take a look at some of the artists showcasing at the annual event that caught our ears. The Rogues kick us off so turn this one up.[audio:http://126.96.36.199/audio/Rogues_Carnival.mp3]
