Long live rock, I need it every night

The Gossip

I know it's not my concert to review, but I have to chime in and post a few comments on The Gossip show. I'll try to be measured in my words and not go overboard. I'm sure those not in attendance will say I'm exaggerating simple to bust chops. I assure you this is not the case. And with that…

Rock Club has not seen the likes of a band like The Gossip. There was an energy, excitement, and force onstage that few bands can muster. The lead singer commands attention with her incredible voice. It's so amazing you might overlook the great musicians behind her. The guitarist (and bassist on some songs) and drummer simply kick ass. Think of the White Stripes' most rocking songs. Now think of those songs going to eleven. Got it so far? Now add some Sabbath. Yeah, it's like that.

I'll be listening to The Gossip for the rest of the day. The songs are great but nothing compares to seeing them live.

I'll second that, they were awesome. It was like Black Sabbath with Janis Joplin as the lead singer instead of Ozzy. The crowd was really, really into it. Fantastic show.

Also, don't forget about that opening band, they were pretty good too.

Good Point. Erase Errata was a great opener. I didn't mention them b/c I figured that Erin would cover them in his in-depth, hard hitting review.
