I had never heard of D.R.U.G.S, but was surfing the interweb and noticed via the Key Club’s Facebook that the show was sold-out. I figured, why not see what they are all about?
This show was part of the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands showcase and featured D.R.U.G.S as the headlining act.
For those of you that don’t know who D.R.U.G.S is, that’s not too surprising. This was only their 3rd performance, and they are a relatively new group. The band consists of Craig Owens, formerly of the band Chiodos, Adam Russell (Story Of The Year), Nick Martin and Aaron Stern. The band seems to have a lot of punk influence and falls in to the scream-o category… the best I could tell anyways.
The highlight of the show for me was when John Feldmann of Goldfinger joined the band on stage to perform “If You Think This Song Is About You.”
D.R.U.G.S isn’t a band I would listen to on a consistent basis, but I can def see the appeal. I would consider seeing these guys again, and I am sure that they will stir up a bit of buzz in 2011. -lorn
