Band of Skulls erupted at House of Blues with their edgy, high-octane blues rock that at times sounded like the love child of Cream and Black Sabbath. The UK trio rolled in, strapped up, and rocked out for an hour and half in front of an all-ages crowd.
“Rock,” “blues,” and “alternative” can describe the scene downtown as the band cruised into San Diego in support of their latest release, Himalayan. From the get-go the band seemed as energized as the audience, while guitar player Russell Marsden bent blues notes and worked the whammy bar while rolling his eyes to the upstairs balcony.
The band stormed through their set, which featured tunes from their three albums, including “Cold Fame,” “I Know What I Am,” “Sweet Sour,” and “Asleep at the Wheel.”
Many may not know much about Band of Skulls yet, but before long this hard-hitting band from across the pond will make audiences take notice and rock out, like the lucky fans at the House of Blues.
