As we noted in our weekend overview post yesterday, Saturday was full of good show choices. I ended up in the divey, smoky environs of Gooski’s for a night of some unique music. Once again I was joined by Punksburgh’s Gooski’s correspondent, Ray Kolcun of Crooked Cobras, who chimed in with his observations.
As always, the show was running on punk time, so things didn’t get started until 10:45 or so, giving me plenty of time to interview Dead River before they hit the stage (stay tuned for that!). This three piece plays a mix of punk and grunge. The songs are fast and aggressive, punctuated by the occasional guitar solo. Guitarist Dan sings most songs while bassist Eugene takes over occasionally. The sound is rad and different from most “typical” punk bands. If you missed Dead River, you can find them next at the Deutschtown Music Festival, playing Huszar at 4pm on Saturday 7/15. You can find their music on Bandcamp.
In recovery from a week down south, I’m stoked to be getting finished with a 12+ hour car ride and returning to the ‘burgh in time for some rad shows happening this weekend!
If you’ve already checked out the 4th River Music Festival (which looks amazing) and still need/want more choices, here are a few that should be on your radar:
