ss5I was fortunate enough to catch Social Strife‘s end of summer bash last night at Lee’s Palace and I was not disappointed. Playing their hard driving brand of socially disenchanted heavy rock, these guys know how to put on a show. From the outset, they took control and never looked back. Their energy was unrelenting and their ability to engage the crowd, as good as any seasoned band. The presence of ┬áRC Ricci on bass brought an added feature to the performance. On stage in his Toxyn persona, somewhere between Gene Simmons and Rob Zombie, he delivered the knock out punch to an already commanding performance. The band was tight. The songs, executed to perfection. The crowd, always on the dance floor, wailing with delight at every gesture from Sean Farro‘s voice.

ss2I was able to speak with the band before they went on stage and they talked about the difficulties in being an Indie band. Some of them play in several bands, hold down day jobs and still give this all that they’ve got. They told me about crappy door deals and obscenely unscrupulous promoters. Given their anti-establishment mind set, Social Strife are doing it on their own; negotiating their own deals and avoiding the promoters. Truly independent.

These guys know what their fans want and they know how to deliver the goods. You have to see Social Strife live. They rock, they roll and they entertain. Great show and a great time.
