CD of the Week: Just Another Saturday Night
As we count down the days until this week's free First Thursday Concert, we're diving into the debut release of the headlining act, The Villains' Just Another Saturday Night. The Atlanta-based band isn't afraid to wear their musical influences on their sleeves. From bass player Dan Call's outlaw country look to charismatic singer/keyboardist Magno's 80's-inspired outfit, there's a wide range of styles. But when you listen, it's clear that it's a mistake to judge the band by its outfits--or its name.
"When the record first came out a lot of reviewers were fooled, thinking this would be a punk act, or a metal act," says Call. "But we like the fact that there's something a little dangerous." The danger extends into its live show with the Atlanta-based band fusing into cohesive live act with elements of country-fried rock and tight vocal harmonies.
Tune in all week to hear selections from Just Another Saturday Night.
