ninebullets.net is the official online presenter of the O’Death show here in Tampa on Tuesday night. While I’m not entirely sure what “the official online presenter” really means, I can also say I don’t really care. Anytime I have the chance to align the site with the Appalachian Apocalypse from New York that is O’death, you best believe I am gonna do it. What this does mean for the local reader is that I have a pair of tickets to give away to the show and what this means for both the local and non-local reader alike is that I have
(3) (1) copies copy of their latest cd, Broken Hymns, Limbs and Skin, to offer to you, the loyal ninebullets.net reader. CDs have been won. What do you have to do for the loot, you ask? Well, go to O’death’s myspace profile and then email me what the fourth song on their music player is. First local person gets the tickets and I’ll give the cd’s to the first 3 local or out of towners to email me the same answer.
If you don’t win don’t let that deter you from this show, Tampa. It’s definitely gonna be a show of the year candidate. Here is what I wrote about them last time they came to Ybor City:
Drummer David Rogers-Berry lived up to his advance billing; screaming, howling, beating trash cans with chains, hyping the crowd, and just generally beating his floor toms so hard you could almost see them wince in agony. Adding to the drum-abusive energy was fiddle player Bob Pycior stomping and dancing about while trying his damnedest to saw his instrument in half. Much like Berry, he plays with such an intensity that you get the impression he is punishing his instrument more than playing it. Balancing out these two was Gabe Darling’s banjo and ukulele and Greg Jamie’s guitar and sometimes woeful, always captivating vocals, which help give the band it’s dark sound.
If you are out and about, come holler at me. I’d love for you to buy me a beer and listen to you tell me how awesome ninebullets is…or we can just talk music and sports. Either way, I’m good…just come out.
