Sons of Bill w/ Hoekstra, Blood Street, Steven Sandifer 

When: Wed., Nov. 5 2008
Want to be a rock star? You’ll need accessories — pewter bracelets, beaded necklaces, funky hats, and lots of sunglasses — preferably of the colorful, thrift-store variety. Of course, you’ll also need to rock. And fortunately for N.Y.C.-based Blood Street, they know how that’s done. Much like Buckcherry put new raw energy into the G N’ R style of rock almost a decade ago. Blood Street sounds like they could fill an arena with in-your-face, socks-off songs like “The Nothing” and “Good to Be King,” (dare we toss in a Nirvana comparison on that one?). And they’re skillfully embellished here-and-there with smooth slide guitar, blazing solos, and grand, harmonious choruses. For Blood Street’s second trip to Charleston, they’ve planned a three-night stand to spread their name — Wed. at the Pour House with the Sons of Bill, Thurs. at Johnson’s Pub, and Fri. at O’Malley’s. Although we’ve yet to see them live, if the “majestic decadence” on their demo tracks comes through live, the buzz should be notable. Sandifer and friends strum on the deck 6-9 p.m. — Stratton Lawrence
