Re: “The Pulse, Blue Suits, Hissy Fits

Three bands! No Cover! Come out to The Tavern after work to chill, and stay for dinner and live music from 3 on-the-rise bands. The Pulse's original sound is a mix of pop, alternative rock, and punk with strong influences from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their newest album, "Break 3" was released in December 2012, with 13 tracks of old and new favorites. Fronted by Anna "Aimmity" Acha, The Pulse's exciting live show projects a strong combination of musical talent and stage energy--they always leave you wanting more! The Blue Suits is an indie rock band from Durham who play a fun, energized, animated show. Varying the mood from chill music to crowd pumping music, The Blue Suits deliver a great show. Hailing from Chapel Hill, The Hissy Fits deliver an interesting and exciting mixture of ska, punk, grunge and rock. The Hissy Fits' unique sound includes music perfect for chilling, and tunes that will get you up on your feet to pogo and skank!

Re: “Delta Rae's Carry the Fire

Wow! I must be listening to a different album. I'm not a fan of diatribe railing, and that's all this review consists of.
