More often than not there’s a band that sticks out like a sore thumb when you look at a lineup. Not the case this evening. All bands are guitar heavy and loud, very very loud and luckily KCLSU has just the sound system for the job.

First up are Dead Confederate from Athens, Georgia (USA) who have been described as Southern Rock but there’s more to them than the big riffs of that whiskey drenched genre. Don’t get me wrong there are big guitars aplenty as are there rock out tangents but there’s a bit more introspection to it than all that. There’s a noticeably grungey side to the band too, especially in front man Hardy Morris and his Kurt Cobain like appearance and guitar style. Impressive facial hair on show from bearded guitarist Walker Howle and twirly moustached keyboard player John Watkins . They can play some too. Great slide guitar, haunting keys and driving beats make songs like their single, ‘The Rat’ a very special affair. They play The Victoria in Mile End tonight, go check them out for yourselves! I just hope their sound system can take it.

For Fans Of: My Morning Jacket, Nirvana, Soundgarden, BRMC, Radiohead.
