Off Center Festival: Rival Sons With Robert Jon & the Wreck
January 22, 2013
Explore the WILD and diverse terrain of today's modern arts scene with the return of the OFF CENTER FESTIVAL! The Segerstrom Center is proud to welcome eight artists that are bringing exciting new perspectives to their genres, breaking down barriers between performers and the audience, and moving our culture forward
Playing a brand of soulful hard rock dripping with the blues and swaggering to a good time groove, Rival Sons is arguably the best recent addition to the swelling ranks of the 70’s revivalist acts. Even with impeccable retro credentials Rival Sons are doggedly establishing themselves as a vital force for the modern age. The Californians' third album, Head Down, is A more adventurous beast than last year's acclaimed Pressure and Time; this album is a riotous carnival of Zep-saluting riffs, sunkissed psychedelia and irresistible hooks, with the band's soul, funk and blues influences thrust joyously to the fore.
But wait until you see and hear them in person; their live shows leave no doubt as to the authenticity of their music, and the passion with which the band plays.
If you like your rock music loud, hard and in-your-face (the way it should be played!), then this is the gig for you!
