Locals Night, September 3

At the Big Easy

comment

Music in Boise has seen a major turn-around in the last few years. A large number of local bands/musicians have cropped up and many established musicians are still around and thriving. Venues in the area are bringing in some amazing acts but, more importantly, are supporting of local music by supplying a place for these local acts to be seen and heard.

This week, The Big Easy's Locals' Night showcases some hard hitters: Slore, Factory Air, OCD and Thoughtless People. Slore, a metal-thrash-metal band are tearing up the scene. After learning that these boys are young enough to have to plan shows around homework, I was pleasantly surprised when I heard them play. They have a raw sound, but that seems to come from youth and emotion more than a lack of experience. They have a great stage presence and are as fun to watch as they are to hear. Factory Air also puts on a great show with their brand of metal-hardcore-rock. Like old-school metal, this band puts a lot of heart and a lot of hair into their music. OCD has a kind of sensibility in their music that along with the ripping guitar riffs and varied vocals make their songs smart and funny and yet serious at the same time (listen closely to "Mini Blinds"). Thoughtless People can definitely rock a party. Their rich, clear vocal harmonies are in juxtaposition with their fiery guitar hooks giving their music an alternative edge. Each time you hear a Thoughtless People song, you discover something new. Metal? Check. Rock? Check. Blues? Check. And, all of these bands are on myspace.com.

If you are up for some serious music over the Labor Day weekend, get out to the Big Easy. You'll thank your lucky stars that you did.

September 3, 7 p.m., $5, The Big Easy

Music in Boise has seen a major turn-around in the last few years. A large number of local bands/musicians have cropped up and many established musicians are still around and thriving. Venues in the area are bringing in some amazing acts but, more importantly, are supporting of local music by supplying a place for these local acts to be seen and heard.

This week, The Big Easy's Locals' Night showcases some hard hitters: Slore, Factory Air, OCD and Thoughtless People. Slore, a metal-thrash-metal band are tearing up the scene. After learning that these boys are young enough to have to plan shows around homework, I was pleasantly surprised when I heard them play. They have a raw sound, but that seems to come from youth and emotion more than a lack of experience. They have a great stage presence and are as fun to watch as they are to hear. Factory Air also puts on a great show with their brand of metal-hardcore-rock. Like old-school metal, this band puts a lot of heart and a lot of hair into their music. OCD has a kind of sensibility in their music that along with the ripping guitar riffs and varied vocals make their songs smart and funny and yet serious at the same time (listen closely to "Mini Blinds"). Thoughtless People can definitely rock a party. Their rich, clear vocal harmonies are in juxtaposition with their fiery guitar hooks giving their music an alternative edge. Each time you hear a Thoughtless People song, you discover something new. Metal? Check. Rock? Check. Blues? Check. And, all of these bands are on myspace.com.

If you are up for some serious music over the Labor Day weekend, get out to the Big Easy. You'll thank your lucky stars that you did.
