The Districts Are Rumbling Through at WCL Oct. 11

The Districts Are Rumbling Through at WCL Oct. 11

Rob Grote expresses passionate conviction through his voice displaying a tone that comes from within. Nothing is held back as he consistently pushes his vocals developing a howling roar as steady-progress narratives dig deep at the soul. The instruments provide an ever-evolving musical setting as Grote explores the surroundings. The Districts can augment there sound in numerous ways, and this versatile approach allows for the incorporation of many influences rooted in heartfelt emotion and uncompromising raw playing. They take the exposed heartache and the sensibility of the blues and infuse it with rage and frustration of punk and grunge. At one moment, the story/song is simple Americana-style country-blues, but a storm is always brewing as guitars sweep through with reckless abandon and the rhythm section rumbles through like a thunderstorm. And to top it off, the band is still only in high school so I guess what I’m saying is watch out for these guys. You can take a listen to our former Featured Artist(s) Poll winner’s latest EP While you were in Honesdale HERE, and check out their HotBox Session below, which first caught our attention. World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St., 8pm, $12, All Ages - Michael Colavita
