Band of Skulls

Last time I saw Band of Skulls (at the Media Club last year), they hadn't yet put out their first album, but had some buzz behind them and were a lot of fun to watch. They were back in town this weekend, playing a couple of sold-out shows at Venue, so I was curious to see how far they'd come in the interim.

First of all, this band has a pretty good-sized fanbase in Vancouver, judging by the turnout and the energy in the place. They didn't let Granville Street down, either. They do a gritty sort of blues that is reminiscent of the Black Keys, in all the right ways, but with more of a rock edge.

It's worth checking out Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, if you haven't yet.
