Think of where melodic, hard-hitting rock comes from and you're more likely to visualize the dirty streets of Chicago than the windy small-town sidewalks of Idaho Falls. But Idahoans are nothing if not full of surprises and 2am Logic's new full-length, Shattered, is full of pleasant ones.
Todd Thompson, Shawn Ringel, Dustin Thueson, Cody Scheer and Kathy Brown create highways of heavy melodies upon which Thompson drives his vocals, changing the pace on slower, heartfelt tunes like "Bottled," before slamming down the pedal on the angry "Get Bent."
If the live show promises half the energy of the CD, get a Red Bull back with your cocktail at Hannah's tonight. You're gonna need it.
Friday, April 24, 7:30-9:30 p.m., Humpin' Hannah's, 621 Main St.
