Coming off of a national appearance on the Colbert Report, brit-pop Aussies, DMA’s played Little 5 Point’s Aisle 5 Sunday evening. It would be hard to avoid the Oasis comparison, especially after Noel Gallagher claimed he would boo them. But the guitar laden (there are three of them) tunes spoke for themselves while front man Tommy O’Dell belted out smooth, nearly-whining vocals.
Nashville based southern rockers Blank Range both looked and played the part. Tinges of Allman Brothers and Drive by Truckers came out while the band blazed through their set.
Spines, one of my Atlanta favorites, took the stage first. Effects heavy guitar and sexpot female vocals somehow jump out from a bruising rhythm section of Lee Kennedy and Caleb Probst. Spines have been playing out a considerable amount the last few months, and it shows as they’ve pared down and tightened up their set.
