Them Crooked Vultures rocked the Roseland
I’ve been a fan of the Foo Fighters for years and really enjoy the charisma that Dave Grohl bring to his music. A few weeks ago a good friend of mine (and total Dave groupie) mentioned that Dave’s new band, Them Crooked Vultures was going to be playing a small gig in Portland. I check out the single they released (New Fang) and enthusiastically got a ticket to the show. I downloaded the album on Amazon and was even more impressed. Dave, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and the legendary John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) mix 70’s classic rock, grunge and an alternative vibe into a solid set of great songs. The concert exceeded my expectations, but it did help that I was in the front about 8′ from the band. The sound was tight, big and well put together. When they introduced John Paul Jones the house, full of people from 10 to 50, went nuts. The guy is simply a Legand. Looking forward to seeing my next rock show! Metric is in Portland on Dec 8th. Should be a great show as well.
