On June 2nd, a good friend of mine was fortunate enough to see Rival Sons for the second time this year in Chicago. Even better was that he secured a spot right at the stage, directly in front of the band. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is.
I normally don't do things like this, but I figured I'd pass along his photos because they're fantastic and really capture the live setting. While Rival Sons take a huge amount of influence from acts like Led Zeppelin, I'd say they have a sound all their own--and one that's definitely getting noticed. You're missing out if you're never heard them before.
|You've gotta admire that soul.|
|...and what looks to be a particularly lively performance.|
|Belt out those notes, Jay.|
|Every good rock band needs pedals for fuzz and destruction.|
|It even looks like the lucky bastard got backstage.|
