My first band of the second night was a muscular rock ‘n’ roll quartet. It looks like I’m going for a theme, huh? Actually, Kansas City’s Admiral of the Red would pair nicely with the Vedettes. The KC act definitely leans more toward modern rock in their sound, but definitely knows how to lock in to more than just shredding and screaming. There’s a punk verve and melodic hook to what they do, and while it’s not earth-shattering in terms of novelty, it’s certainly worth watching.
