If you live anywhere near Savannah and love rock and roll, you should think about getting yourself to The Jinx tonight (Friday, 7/24) for Niche‘s release of Heading East on the Retro Futurist label.
Check out the event details. $10 cover gets you a CD. Bask will open.
From Bradley Mullis in Do Savannah:
The group coins their sound as “’70s-influenced rock with Southern and psychedelic tendencies.” Instead of copying traditional rock ‘n’ roll elements, Niche puts them all together for their interpretation of rock, delivering groovy riffs at a steady pace with weary but upbeat melodies.
From Anna Chandler’s interview with Justin Dick in Connect Savannah:
Niche’s Retro Futurist debut, Heading East, is a tidal epic, sending listeners roaming across expanses of hot, hard-beaten earth and soaring them skyward in airy, psychedelic swirls. Sprawling out of the dynamic dueling guitars of Dick and Niche’s newest member Kris Maedke-Russell, their huge, ‘70s-steeped sound is awakened by Corey Barhorst’s organ, Mike Redmond’s full-throttle bass, and the incredible chops of drummer Lee Vallier.
So, you should go. Here are a few shots of a previous Niche show at The Jinx.
