www.steelnotesmagazine.com Deprived headlined the “Winter Carnage” event at Jabberjaws Saturday night and they played with a vengeance. Their set was a mixture of sounds that reminded me at times of Nirvana’s “Bleach” album-i.e. their song “Abrasion” which was one of my personal favorites. I need to say right here that I think of them more “David Grohl” than “Kurt Cobain” as the music they create comes from an exceptionally skilled right brain of thought. Other times during their hour plus set I heard influences of bands like Social Distor- tion, i.e. in their song Brainwashed. Regardless of the influence, they have the advanced sound of a grunge/punk band, with quiet middle 8’s , verses you want to learn the words for, and choruses that are tri-tempo (yeah, I made that up, it means three times faster tempo…get it?) With guitar vocalist Mike leading the crew with his charismatic great stops by Chad, and the well placed crash by Don, I think I’m going to download Set List more than e Banshe just the you tube me Ti The Last videos!

At the show they gave me their CD, “Confessions of a Lunatic, which is actually in rotation in my car stereo right now. More than once; since I got the disk, a passenger in my car asked who the band was and where they could get their music. Just last week I was driving to a club in Bethlehem, with the volume up and the car windows cracked. I was happily surprised to see a group of col- lege kids walking down the street, who suddenly broke into the chorus of “Rage” as I drove by. Another Day Dawns’ third set was a crowd-pleasing, photo taking, sweaty dance floor of fist pumping, head banging joy. There was nothing missing from this show=the sound was superb, the band was tight, the front man was sexy, and the musicians each got a chance to showcase their talents.
