Sure, every band and its mother claims
to be bringing rock and roll back. Sound of Urchin
is going the full nine to prove
it this tour. The New York City band is taking an oversize lighting rig on tour, turning every club into an arena show for jamming rawk
sets in the tradition of Van Halen, Rush, and Thin Lizzy. "It is seriously the best rock show you will have been to in years," says singer-drummer Tomato 11. "Energy, passion, guitar solos, melody, heart, and not a trace of pretension, ironic rock stance, or apathy." Fans of adventurous and offbeat tunes might recognize the Urchins: Tomato and lead guitarist Reverend B-ill
play in Dean Ween's Moistboyz, and guitarist Seahag
plays in Zappa-tribute Project Object. Admission includes a free copy of Rejoice!
, the band's new CD. So that means Urchin will bring the rock, and you
can bring it home.
