Sound: Tight, deliberate, hard-hitting rock, formed a bass-less, two-guitars-and-drums concept.
Influences: Queens of the Stone Age, The Raconteurs, Jack White
Live show: Extravagant and circus-themed, featuring marching band attire, female backup dancers in parade outfits and a confetti-shooting cannon barrel, which they shot off at Double Door
Claim to fame: Reviews have been good for the band’s debut video “Walk in Place,” but, says singer/guitarist Joe Shadid, 25, “claim to fame was [bleeping] blowing that cannon.”
