This extraordinary rock band is made up of a kinetic sculpture producing pop music with strong experimental sounds of bright melodies and a dark sense of humor on top of sonic meltdowns that could be swirling clockwise at the outer edges or counter-clockwise toward the center. Founded in 1999 when they had just begun playing their first live shows. In their shows, you'll find them setting up their equipment and taking the stage with deliberation. As soon as Carla begins the heavy, stuttering Can-on-heroin beat to their song, “Turnstile Blues” and Eugene begins to sing “my thoughts take me downtown...” in a strange androgynous voice, the audience will come flocking in and everything will shift and fall apart into a powerful rush of dissonance and noise you'll ever hear. Of course, this will be followed by Greg’s drunken, slightly out-of-tune guitar melody. Within the first minute of the first song, you will know that you're witnessing the arrival of a unique and powerful new band.
The legendary country musician makes a stop in the city tongiht, so make that extra effort to catch his show. Since starting out singing gospel as a child, the bluegrass stint with Lester Flatt in the ‘70s, the six years with Johnny Cash in the ‘80s, and coming up with his smash “hillbilly rock” hits of the ‘90s, the four time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music memorabilia preservationist, stylist, designer, photographer, songwriter, all around renaissance man, charismatic force of nature, and (first of all, perhaps), leader of the extraordinary, versatile touring and recording band The Fabulous Superlatives, Marty Stuart has shown a showman’s zest for every conceivable flavor of country music. Not to mention, a missionary’s zeal for bringing the importance of the music and its themes home to long-time fans and newcomers alike.
During their debut performance on national TV on Good Morning America, these guys were described by Robin Roberts as a mix of the Jonas Brothers and Blink-182. Hey, why not?!! Cameron, Michael, Nathan, and Zach make up this band of pop energy that could also get them in the same league as All American Rejects. Not only are their names almost closely related, but the two bands also have similar sounds and similar energetic shows. The one thing that separates these guys, aside from the lack of massive appeal - which is yet to come, is their upbringing through Disney. That always helps with the tweenie-bopper fans they're trying to build. Just ask Jonas Brothers and Hanna Montana. Its all screams as with any other Disney creation mixed in with easy riffs and catchy pop choruses to go with your french fries. Its small venues for now, but we see a huge stadium performance in these tweens' future.
