KHB on MCB: IAMDYNAMITE - Hollywood, CA
IAMDYNAMITE. Those who are familiar with German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche would say the name sounds familiar but don't let the name fool you. This "dynamic duo" is anything but pretentious. I learned this upon whipping up a quickie impromptu promo shoot with the two last week before their show at the Viper Room on the Sunset Strip. Chris (guitar/vox) and Chris (drums/vox) have whitty personality not only on stage but off stage as well and it definitely reflects in their performance. Hailing from the Motor City, it's no surprise these two can throw down a great performance. The first few minutes into their first song I knew these two were packing more than a Black Keys vibe. It wouldn't be fair to assume that this duo will automatically sound like something we've heard before and I was pleasantly surprised to discover their sound is an explosion that sounds beyond two dudes on a stage. We were even treated to a few AMAZING drum solos and then, for shits and giggles, why not throw in a Black Keys song to close the set? -Except it sounded better, and yes I'm totally serious.
Chris and Chris are "two guys who sound like five." That being said, "I am no man. I am dynamite!"
