Last Wednesday, 08/26/09 was another Ryan’s Smashing Life showcase. Show preview was here: http://blog.mikeandsophia.com/?s=http://www.bostonbandcrush.com/2009/08/show-crush-rsl-presents-larcenist.html
Larcenist were releasing their CD at this show, they are a group of five songwriters that all sing and sometimes do gang vocals. They veered from street punk to alt-country in a way that made them hard to pin down genre-wise. More photos of Larcenist are located here.
Static of the Gods are a perfect trio. Everyone contributes to this intense wall of music that allows Johnson’s vocals to wash over the instruments and the crowd. More photos of SOTG are located here.
