21st Century Goliath w/ Drudgery 

When: Sat., April 27 2013
Price: $5

local garage/punk rock

Hey, fans of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, and Guns N’ Roses — this week there is one band and one band only that you absolutely have to see: 21st Century Goliath. This Charlotte, N.C.-based band pays head-banging homage to the glory days of cock rock. “A rock ‘n’ roll band — and the music —needs to be believable or it ain’t worth the paper the songs are written on,” says lead singer Tony Leone. “We’re here for that, to give the kids who are rifling through their parents’ records listening to old Zeppelin and AC/DC albums — Bon Scott era, of course — something of their own to believe in. We’re pretty sure the radio isn’t giving them that.” Leone adds, “And besides, since when was it such a crime to party and have fun at a rock show? We’re certainly here for that too.” Amen, brother, amen. —Chris Haire SATURDAY
