The Etchings

Postby sevenyearsdown » June 16th, 2014, 7:40am

We played on a line-up Saturday night with the Etchings at Goodbar. I'd certainly heard their name before, but in general I ignore original rock music around here.

They were awesome. The songs were arranged well, strong vocal melodies, and really tight band. They had a really great mix as well. There wasn't anyone one player drowning out others. It made for a really big sound from three guys. I'm glad there was a band in between them and us, because we would have looked silly following them.

I couldn't really pin a specific genre on them other than to say they were an original rock band. Gonna check out some of their recordings to see if it compares to the live set.

Anyway - really good original band in Buffalo. Check them out if you get a chance.

Maybe a band like Muse (the heavier stuff) minus the falsetto. That might not be a great comparison. Just a really good alternative rock band if anyone cares for that term anymore. Good musicians, variety of techniques, every song had it's own thing going on. I dunno - they were rock, and they were good.
