Triple Bill Action: Moonlight Towers, Grand Champeen & Gentlemen Rogues, Saturday at Frank
I’ve said this several times now. I shall continue reiterating my point until it’s permanently burned into your memory: There is nothing more invigorating than a show with not one, not two, but three bands that you really like. That’s three times the awesomeness.
So what we have this week is a massive line-up of local faves dishing out big doses of melodic rock ‘n’ roll – guitar-ridden, crunchy, jangly, poppy-rock goodness that you won’t want to miss out on:
-Moonlight Towers – Avid fans and critics alike rave about their power pop prowess, thanks in large part to all those rock-solid riffs, hooks and rhythms. Last year’s full-length release, Day Is the New Night, is still a major Texas Music Matters favorite. If you don’t have it already, get it.
-Grand Champeen – People tend to toss around the phrase, “Keeping it real,” with great abandon. This is a band that lives up to that standard without all the bull. Keeping it simple with straight-up rock, great vocal range, and distortion in all the right places. No nonsense. Love it.
-Gentlemen Rogues – An outstanding combination of power-, punk- and indie-pop with British influences, and loads of guitar to back it up. Catchy, upbeat, melodic and contagious. Absolutely a new fave of mine.
You can see all three bands tear the house down Saturday night at Frank, 407 Colorado St. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Don’t let the funky construction out front deter you; this will be worth your while. This one comes highly recommended.
