Be a Deviant w/Motherwhore at KFN March 23

The trio of Motherwhore embodies gloomy, gothic grit. Semi-filtered through the shade, the band smacks of a direct simplicity, luring listeners with semi-spoken, spellbinding vocals that hang on with an emotive, expressive power. Catching on to an unencumbered, raw, rock feel, a somewhat methodical mechanism establishes a sense of weighted steps as the guitar echoes through the fading light, demanding that you follow. Motherwhore inflects a dreary, deserted expanse with momentary musical mirages that shimmer with catchiness. Tonight’s billing at Kung Fu Necktie will be fortified by the quick-fired pop-punk of Baby Brains and the unrefined snapping confidence of Trash Night, whom dare to roam in the darkness. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St. 8pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Bad Reed are a 4 piece alt-rock group from Brantford. They have an interesting mix up in their tunes. Their self titled EP was released in June of last year. The track "Punch It" has grungy guitars wailing away over top of a tight rhythm section but the synth and vocal work is what really stood out for me. The singer has some Grace Slick vocal action that's slightly mesmerizing. Add in the synth and your mind will be gently spinning throughout the track. A good mix of catchy and uniqueness coming from Bad Reed. You can see them LIVE at Homegrown Hamilton on Friday March 25th. - Kris Gies

3 guys, music and ties...kinda like 5 Guys Burgers and Fries...except these 3 guys can all sing...really well! Xprime are a pop rock outfit from Niagara Falls. They've been making a decent buzz around here since the release of their latest album "PM". Not only are these guys extremely proficient at their individual instruments they can all sing and harmonize together damn near perfectly. It's very impressive to see them pull off their 3 part harmonies live. Their tunes will make you wanna dance and that's a fact. Listen to "Dance Tonight" from their album "PM" and go see Xprime live on Thursday March 24th at Adelaide Hall. - Kris Gies
