The Gotham Rocks invasion of the Midwest started on Monday June 25th, at The Globe Theater in Kalamazoo, Michigan featuring touring bands The August Infinity from NYC, Scarlet Carson from NJ, and Another Lost Year from NC and anchored by the Michigan natives, Pro Con Pro, Gunship Radio, Sticky Fut, and Ransom Complex.
The August Infinity is one of New York City’s best new modern rock bands with a great live show and anchored by the electrifying front man Joshua Hawksley. With hints of The Used and Coheed and Cambria, The August Infinity combines great songwriting, hooks and melodies with guitars that range from pretty acoustics to aggressive metal. Creative basslines, electronics and driving drums round out this must-see band from brooklyn. www.theaugustinfinity.com.
Scarlet Carson likes to change people’s minds about what it means to be from the Jersey Shore. Great performers, Scarlet Carson is one of NJ’s biggest bands for good reason. Stylistically similar to Avenged Sevenfold but with more modern stylings, singer Santino Noir lays down impressive vocal lines to match equally impressive guitar and rhythm work. www.scarletcarson.com.
