You would never know that Bass Drum of Death is a two piece band. The Mississippi duo of John Barrett on guitar/vocals and Colin Sneed on drums make trail blazing rock that leaves half-hearted-listeners in the dust (think Japandroids). Contrary to the group’s name, you’re not going to be bombarded with Southern 808s, but expect a lot of wailing of “oww wows,” references to drugs, girls, and Hunter S. Thompson-esque stories.

Catch them tonight at The Echo. Win a pair of tickets on our iPhone app.
