Kurtzweil(top four pictures) kicked off this week’s Local Band Local Beer at Tir na Nog with a blast. After being lucky enough to sit in on their in-studio acoustic show, I was pumped to see their pluged-in act. They brought a pounding start to the night with tight instrumentals mixed with a beautiful female vocalist.
To soothe the mid-hours of the LBLB, The Pinkerton Raid(middle three pictures) stepped on stage. While they had less energy than the other two bands, their melodies were addicting.
To top of the night, Borrowed Arts(bottom 3 pictures) took it up a notch. I was headbanging and jumping around. The drummer laid down a great beat that drove the rest of the band into a rock frenzy. It lacked lyrics, but made up for it with progression and musical technicality.
