Blimey! It’s been a while… Ok, let’s get this gig review stuff out of the way: A charming band paid tribute to a charming man in the middle section of a charming song at a charming gig in a charming town… Done and done!
It’s very easy to lose your way in this life.
It’s very easy to lose faith in this life.
To give in to the cynicism
To feel oppressed by an uncaring society based on greed and selfishness…
But all is not lost
You are not alone
There are others out there who give a shit
Good people who embrace positivity
And restore your faith in humanity…
You may well think WTF, isn’t this a gig review?
Well, yes and no!
Ruts DC embody the spirit of the aforementioned good people.
Ruts DC give a shit!
They create an atmosphere of positivity, inclusivity, fun and downright decency.
All while being fully in control and keeping it real.
But what of the songs?
Well, let’s talk about the whole, rather than its constituent parts!
There is not a beat out of place with their exquisitely delivered and perfectly executed performance of their homegrown brand of Punk/Rock/Reggae/Pop/No Nonsense/Rebel Music.
A perfect night out.
Miss them at your peril!
