Daredevil Squadron -- New York, NY -- August 16th, 2012

Randomly went to NYC last night to check out this band Daredevil Squadron, which includes a number of guys that play in Trans-Siberian Orchestra (Andrew Ross, Angus Clark). The show was at a small club on the lower east side called Arlene's Grocery, which despite being pretty small and unassuming was a fantastic little place. Nice, low-key bar upstairs and a small but solid room downstairs. Actual stage and the sound was fantastic - among the best small club shows I've seen sound-wise. The band was surprisingly good, and astoundingly tight. Great guitar duels, rock-solid bass playing and insanely impressive drumming. Their music has a bit of everything in it, it's largely Rock n' Roll based with a lot of 70s/80s influence - Thin Lizzy, early Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, with touches of some other, more Progressive influences.

Setlist:
01 Power Trip
02 Out of the Sun
03 Faith Hope Love
04 Hero Falls
05 Chronicles of Sorrow Pt. 1: An Eternity of Forgetfulness
06 Back Lounge
07 Streets of Montmartre
08 Lillian
09 Fairies Wear Boots (Black Sabbath Cover)
