One of my favorite venues, Skull Alley, here in Louisville, KY put on a damn decent show last Thursday. I reviewed the show over on Backseatsandbar.com, but I wanted to spend a little time getting to know the openers, Royal Bangs from Knoxville, TN.
The Bangs are composed of Ryan, Jason, Danny, Sam, and Chris. They rocked Bonnaroo this year and Spin Magazine called them the best live show of Day 1. They were definitely on their game on Thursday. One of the best parts of indie shows is stumbling across bands like the Royal Bangs. The show was really really tight. Using an astonishingly super rhythm section to build upon with guitars and a fair share of noise. Their debut, We Breed Champions, is out on Audio Eagle Records and is well worth your time.
