BSMG Brings Diverse Rock Showcase to Milkboy

Broad Street Music Group put on a great show at Milkboy Wednesday night, with performances from Hadley Stacks, Siamese Sundown, Scuzbot, The Sixties, and The Makeshift Uprising. All of these local acts brought their own style to the table, but overall it was rock-themed evening.

Hadley Stacks opened the night with a dazzling solo acoustic performance, marked by her thoughtful lyrics. Songs about everything from war to love were structured around creative riffs and choruses. She mentioned that she has an album in the works, so keep an eye out. Give a few of her songs a listen for now on Myspace.

Siamese Sundown played some great rock n’ roll, including their radio-successful single “Shake” that has explosive choruses filled with interesting guitar work and belting vocals from Brendan McCarthy. There were some really well done solos, and the music had a little bit of a southern twang to it. The drummer also did some notable work, playing fills that took him all over the kit with ease. Give them a listen here.

Scuzbot has an awesome sound that fits into one definite category: pop punk. They play catchy hooks quickly and with an authentic sense of a carefree attitude making their live show tons of fun. Dual vocalists allow their music to range through the entire spectrum from clean to gritty, and sometimes they even just shout the words frantically. The guitar and bass riffs are just as appealing, they keep moving while never repeating too many times. To top it all off, the drums are being absolutely clobbered on with dynamic beats. Some of the best songs from their set were “Shapes and Trends,” “Send in the Clowns,” and “Washed Up”. Download their album for free on bandcamp or their site.

The Sixties is a rock band that draws from a few different styles and results in a sound of crazy guitar riffs and solos with really energetic shouting vocals. This band succeeds in creating a wall of sound that they comfortably carry along with each new melody, making every song a driving force. They ended their set with an stellar performance of “On The Road,” which you can stream on bandcamp. Give them a listen and make it out to one of their upcoming shows.

The Makeshift Uprising closed out the night with another unique blend of rock, their’s ranging from metal to punk. Heavy guitar riffs were interwoven with clean riffs and heavy bass that resulted in a really cool sound. Vocalist Randall Roy can follow the music anywhere it goes, his voice has the ability to be soft and eerie to loud and angry, just like the band. I haven’t been able to find any of the band’s tunes online, but keep an eye out on Facebook for songs and tour dates.
