Re: “Proof 151 and 48 Thrills

Chase the Shakes was absolutely awesome; their primary vocalist, Megan, was a total babe and she had some of the most extraordinary pipes I've ever heard. The girl knows how to growl. A typical song by the band lasted anywhere between 26 seconds and a minute twenty. It was total punk, thrash, grindcore bliss.

The Kos (pronounced the COSS) was decidedly more melodic. It was a great change of pace. They had awesome cover songs including the Cure's "Just Like Heaven" and Dramarama's "Anything, Anything (I'll Give You)". The KOS' originals were along the lines of Social Distortion only without Mike Ness' gruff vocals. Overall the band was smooth, melodic, and exciting.

48 Thrills is a phenomenal punk n roll band that gets better with every beer. If you're looking to get out to a show and not sit around, these guys are for you. Even the most unmoving wallflower will not be able to help being compelled to shake a leg in the face of the might 48 Thrills. And, yes, the name is an ode to one of their biggest influences, the Clash.

Proof 151 headline this show; this band mixed punk, pop, and hard rock melodic rock. Their sound would probably fit with the likes of Lagwagon, Nofx, and the slew of other 90's punk bands. However they differentiate themselves from the pack with a unique melodic sensibility and a harder edge. In any case, the music is very exciting, emotional, and something you just have to experience for yourself.
