Most Likely to Kick Ass in '03
Review by Keavin Wiggins
Over the past year I have been able to
witness Low-five go from a really good local band to a powerhouse that
has what it takes to hit superstardom. They recently finished recording
some songs for Warner Brothers with Chris Goss producing. Although that
was only a developement deal, it's only a matter of time before either
WB offers them a full contract or another label snatches these guys up.
Here is a little bit of the coverage of
them from our antiFEST Coverage.
Low-five; let’s talk about a band that
just keeps getting better as time goes on. I was duly impressed when I
caught my first Low-five show but what started out as a really good band
with some promise has evolved into a rock n roll monster!
You would expect any band that features
former Queens of the Stone Age drummer Nick Lucero to kick ass but Low-five
goes beyond that with four exceptionally talented individuals that have
found a winning formula and have many buzzing that they are the next big
Low-five’s performance at antiFEST
shows us where that consensus came from. The moment they took the stage
they were off and running and no one was going to get in the way of their
goal of rockin’ every single person in the room. On this night they embodied
that line from the Bob Seager classic “Turn the Page,” here was a band
that took every ounce of energy and gave it away to the audience. They
looked like they were having the time of their life on stage and it was
contagious by the time they played their signature song, “Take Me Down”
they had lifted the audience and held them captivated with people struggling
to get a little close to the stage.
Low-five brought it all home and really
put the icing on the cake of an unforgettable night of music where every
band that played raised the bar and took things far beyond our goal of
antiFEST being a showcase of the absolute best bands on the So Cal scene.
It just doesn’t get better than this!
