Gig of the Week

On Broken Wings, Take, Keeping Secrets, Secrets Known To Liars, October 14

by

Last Saturday, Keeping Secrets took first place in The Core's Battle of the Bands. Didn't get to see them in the finals? Well, here's your chance. They will be at the Venue with some other cool hardcore bands.

On Broken Wings is an uber heavy band that loves the live shows. These five boys outta Massachusetts take great pride in tearin' it up hardcore Boston to Boise Together since 2001, they have released two CDs on Eulogy. Some Of Us May Never See The World in 2003 and their newest CD, It's All A Long Goodbye, available in stores now.

Take is a hardcore band from Vegas with great vocal harmonies and guitar riffs reminiscent of Metallica. Take describes their philosophy on their myspace.com page: "Stand for what you believe in and you can make a difference. Never back down, never give up and never give in!" There you have it.

Secrets Known To Liars has only been together since early this year, but are already rockin' the hardcore scene. Out of the Magic Valley area, these guys take the stage with an incredible amount of energy and are a great addition to this line-up.

Keeping Secrets is also a young band. Formed in early 2005, these native Boiseans obviously have the right stuff. They write their own songs and perform them all with passion and heart. Their sound? Calling them emo/screamo/hardcore wouldn't be wrong, but you better get out and hear for yourself. Hey, they did just win Battle of the Bands so you better get out and hear them while you can. I think these guys are headed for the big-time.

Friday, October 14, 7 p.m., $8, all ages, The Venue, 521 Broad St.
