There’s nothin’ quite like being in a good, ol’ fashioned club. Chess club, beekeepers club, debate club -- all good, and all fun in their own way. But nothing compares to one in particular: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club! Checkmate poindexter, the cool Frisco kids are takin’ their righteous indie rock and perfectly worn leather jackets to House of Blues San Diego on Friday, Oct. 28 with none other than Death From Above 1979 and San Diego natives Deap Vally in tow! Best part? We’re giving away four tickets to the show to one lucky winner!
For the unfamiliar, BRMC started as a noise-pop band in the vein of Jesus and the Mary Chain. Their debut self-titled 2001 album put ‘em on the map, but they soon evolved into an all-encompassing rock machine with their folk/blues-inspired album “Howl” in 2005, and then the neo-psych pop-flavored “Baby 81” record in 2007. Their latest record, 2014’s “Specter at the Feast,” showcased a slightly mellower side to the band. Simply put: these guys can do everything. Expect the group to pull out all the stops during their San Diego show on Oct. 28 -- they’re a force to be reckoned with in a live setting!
As is Death From Above 1979. The Toronto, Canada-based duo that are now on the reunion tip after breaking up in 2006 literally shake the walls whenever they play. The drum/bass duo of Sebastein Grainger and Jesse Keeler play a pummeling style of dance-punk that seems to get more raucous with each song. Expect the paint to be peeling off the ceiling when these dudes turn up.
With the garage rock wallop of Deap Vally kicking the show off on the 28th, House of Blues San Diego will be the place to be -- the lineup is just unbeatable! Luckily, you’ve got a chance to win four tickets and a $50 Karma Kash gift card (for use at the venue’s restaurant or gift shop) but don’t delay: we pull the winner’s name at noon on Oct. 26, so get in it to win it!
