DO NOT GO TO BENTLEY RD! THE VENUE IS RIGHT OFF OF NEW HAMPSHIRE AVENUE. LOOK FOR THE BROKEN SHOE RANCH SIGN. There are two touring bands on this bill. Please come out and support them. Note: Blood Manor is a barn. It is closed off and there will be space heaters but take the weather into consideration, and dress for warmth.
“The rundown on Sinatra’s sound: well-executed, effect-laden, nimble guitar work underscoring raspy screams with a solid rhythm section— particularly Jon Stephens’ drum work. They immediately bring the dancy punk sensibilities of Native or Zlam Dunk to mind, though Sinatra are less caustic than the former and more catchy than the latter. Interestingly enough, the slower songs, especially the instrumental “We Transition,” channel the chilled-out math rockers This Town Needs Guns, or perhaps even the ambient, expansive emo of American Football. The final track “Whole Word; No Soul” lashes out like HORSE the Band on barbiturates; it cuts sweeping tremolo with staccato bursts of shrapnel riffage, before a spoken word build-up rife with delayed guitar climaxes with guitar noodling and gang vocals. In essence, Sinatra have crafted a unique sound entirely their own, but have an impressive musical pedigree backing them up.”
