Though I hadn’t yet heard the full new album by The Pretty Reckless, I was loving the first single that I had been spinning with “Take Me Down”. I spoke about the rocking hit song HERE if you wanted to learn my thoughts and what excited me about tonight was that this would be the largest venue that I had seen TPR doing their thing in concert. I’ve often mentioned how Terminal 5 was not my favorite venue in the music scene of NYC and that remains true based on the distance and time it adds onto one’s schedule when bounding about the city but since tonight was a comfortable evening and not yet super cold, an early arrival made this alright by me. This time LOL.
Them Evils: I had made sure to be on point for a couple of reasons and the first was based on the aforementioned hike to the actual club but the second was a lot more important when it came down to it since it was to check out this lead off band. One of my reps was working with them and was interested in my take so why not enjoy the whole show from beginning to end. Sometimes it’s not possible to do that but I was glad that tonight offered that means. Them Evils is a three-piece Hard Rock band out of Orange County, CA and to my knowledge they are not yet signed. They really got the crowd started and I was happy to find the audience that was already on point was rocking out hard as they played a mixture of originals and some peppered in covers. I’ll have to assume that they played their whole self-titled EP for the masses tonight and the covers chosen were AC/DC’s “It’s a Long Way To The Top” and Motorhead’s “Ace Of Spades”. Hopefully they will be remembered after this tour for more than doing some solid renditions on classics as the band really deserves the nod. Add them to your up and coming list with thumbs up from me. Holy White Hounds was next.
