If Wolfmother and the Arctic Monkeys met in a garage in the 60's and had a lovechild, that child would rock, slam, and jam like The Dirty Delusions. This three-piece rock group brought a wave of heavy riffs to The Cobra on October 7th, headlining the bill with Sandytronn and Basic Printer.
Two curly-haired giants on guitar and bass up front, and a nice young man with a snazzy hat on drums had the audience running wild with their dangerous persuasions. They brought punk rock energy and bombastic zeal to the room, flooring all who dared gaze upon their roaring might. Aaron Billiot's wailing guitar, Charley Smotherman's warm, fuzzy bass lines, and Jake Smith's pounding beats made it clear The Dirty Delusions were a formidable blast of energy to behold.
On top of great performances, the night was one of giving as much as it was of rock. All of the bands playing that night donated to different charities; The Dirty Delusions gave proceeds from poster sales to The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence in the wake of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas. Nashville Offbeat loved that the vibe was welcoming, fun, and all about getting together to do some good.
“The pretty side of it; rock is beautiful. I want them to hear rock but also feel that the melodies are cinematic and emotional”
“This is a bill of pure funk. Big bands, big sound, big energy, all to celebrate life!” - Sam Saideman (Innovo Management)
“…I woke up a new person. Alive is the first love song I've written that wasn't about a girl."
Our Hip-hop scene in Nashville may be on the smaller side, but the artists who are doing it, are doing it incredibly well.
Her latest single, “Calm Rage” sent shivers down my spine when I first heard it. The raw intensity of the lyrics paired with the cinematic style of production immediately flooded my mind with images that should be found only in a Hollywood thriller.
