Cusses, The Ex-Girlfriends Club, Hopeless Jack & The Handsome Devils 

When: Thu., April 18, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Savannah, Georgia, trio Cusses have been compared to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and they wield a big, brash, brutal sound on their debut self-titled full-length album. Also like Yeah Yeah Yeahs (at least in the early days), Cusses get by merely on drums, guitar, and voice—all of them thundering, particularly lead singer Angel Bond, who's as good as rock vocalists come. She throws her voice to its furthest limits, where it cracks appealingly (with echoes of Joan Jett) but never breaks. Apart from Bond's charisma on the mic, I'm not quite sure what, if anything, makes Cusses unique among the millions of other guitar-driven hard-rock bands out there, but their music sounds terrific at loud volumes, and that's plenty.
