Charging, fist-pumping rock ‘n’ roll with killer leads and, as they call it, “ball-kicking bass,” local troupe Black Actress brings a little damage to Double Door, a furious tornado of boozy blood that could stir a riot. Some seventies punk influence is in here as well, as each song seems set to hyperspeed. Shouting, raging vocals and tireless drum-pounding should bring the crowd to its feet, if the audience isn’t already too drunk to stand. Most of the songs feature some type of hook or chorus that seems destined to be chanted from barrooms. “We’re the kids of yesterday!” is only one of them. Rock music was forever in love with guitar solos, but then seemed to turn its back on them starting in the late nineties. Black Actress brings the tool back with a vengeance. This should be fun.
