First Listen: Wave Baby and Rebel Spaceships
This Friday we get a proper look at two new bands, Wave Baby and Rebel Spaceships. Though new as bands, both groups are made up of familiar faces. Wave Baby is the new project of former Heavy Drags members Gavin Bistodeau and Andrew Watson and Rebel Spaceships is the reunited band of recently returned musician Jason Dunn.
"We are a three piece guitar rock band with vocal harmonies," Dunn said. "We've been playing together for about six months, but Rebel Spaceships used to play around town like ten years ago. I just got it going again with new members." Rebel Spaceships is influenced by everything from classic rock and punk bands like The Ramones, The Misfits, to surfy stuff like The Ventures and Dick Dale.
"If I'm going to be completely honest with myself, I am pretty influenced by older metal bands like Metallica and Slayer and Iron Maiden," Dunn added.
Wave Baby on the other hand is a guitar and drum, vibed out, stony baloney duo. According to drummer Watson, Wave Baby is "cranking guitar, reverb city, blasted out, clap your hands too drum beats and bright tunneled vocal" rock music.
It sounds like if you dig guitar driven indie rock this is the show to check out. Friday night is sure to be a shredders paradise with Dunn, Bistodeau, and Bronco Country's Griff Chiono all ripping on guitar.
Check out their sets of new bands Wave Baby and Rebel Spaceships at Cruisers on Horizon with support from Bronco Country. This is a 21 and up event and there is a $5 cover.
