This weeks Happy Mondays found us listening to an unplugged set from Power rockers Atlas Bloom. I have always been in awe of the skill and talent this trio has and the vocal harmonies they produce are unmatched in our local scene. I am a hard rock guy, but I just love a good acoustic set from a bunch of, what did I previously call them? Musical Savants. Only a couple of other bands I have seen can shred an acoustic guitar and an upright bass like these guys. I believe they were a bit worried about how the unplugged thing would go over, not sure why really. Good stuff.
Next week is going to get loud and crazy with a bill of The Turnbucklers, Fortune Yeller and Wolfasurus Rex.
