TOTAL SCORE: 7.2/10

[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

Crowd: Walking into The Velvet Underground, I once again was faced with the fact that the goth scene is dead. The same 10 people near the stage and some lazy observers at the bar.. At least they were clapping after each song.

Style: Good old Gothic Rock. Sometimes I could hear Joy Division, sometimes the guitars were drifting off into shoegaze territory. Classy and well-composed.

Technicalities: No problems were detected.

Memorable Song/Moment: The Knievel Dead provided the crowd with a great musical experience overall.

Sex Appeal/Image: Very post-punk. All-black outfits, dress shirts and skinny ties.

Comments: I am very disappointed that more NXNE-goers didn’t check this band out. You guys missed out.
