Saints and Strangers
Birdy’s Bar & Grill was packed to the gills last Saturday night with a crowd electrified with excitement over Saints and Strangers’ new CD release.
It could have been a rocking good time full of sweat and vigor, the coming-out of a fresh new voice on the scene. Instead it turned out to be a sinkhole of mediocrity.
Saint and Strangers' on-stage demeanor consisted of an older middle-management type playing guitar with his younger charges beating each other with a big bland stick behind him.
As for the music, well, if this is “Edgy Americana” as the band’s promotional materials claim, then Air Supply is death metal.
The band gave the audience exactly what it came for, and the crowd ate up every last bit of it: non-offensive, never rattling the bones, never challenging the mind.
