Three To See

| Print |

The Graduation: The members of this three-piece group play music like they graduated from the best music school in the country and got all A’s. This is an alternative band in the true sense of the word, in that they are an alternative to a lot of national acts that always played on the radio. The bass guitar work is impossible to ignore as it grooves under a gloomy wall of guitar sound to create something truly original that you have to hear to believe. This group has their own school of thought when it comes to writing songs, and if originality is something they set out to achieve; the Graduation certainly pass the test.

Asia Minor:
Asia Minor is a local rock band that uses two guitars to create a melodic, dueling guitar sound. The two guitar players go back and forth playing guitar riffs and unusual chords while still managing to have enough punch in the hooks to draw the audience in. The bands main source of entertainment, however, is the singer’s love for verbally assaulting the audience and cracking jokes between songs. At their show at the Hi-Pointe Café last month, it was just as much fun to hear the singer address the audience as it was to hear the music. I’d love to see them play an all-ages show to hear how they heckle a club full of minors.

Riddle of Steel: Metropolis may have had the man of steel, but in St. Louis, we have Riddle of Steel. No doubt, they are a super band. Riddle of Steel is an three-piece, underground rock band with a powerful drummer that is impossible to ignore and draws audiences into their set with exciting rhythms and a unique stage presence as he flies through the fast-paced set. The low vocal style solid guitar playing also ad to the strength of the group.
