Thursday: The Gracious Few @ The Newport

Following in the footsteps of Audioslave and Velvet Revolver, The Gracious Few grabs the singer and guitarist from a moderately well-known mid-90s commercial rock band (Kevin Martin and Sean Hennesy of Candlebox) and puts them with 3 members of a mid-90s commercial alternative band (Chad Taylor, Patrick Dalheimer, and Chad Gracey of Live).

While neither Audioslave nor Velvet Revolver really did much for me (the individual bands from which they sprang were better than the ‘supergroups’), The Gracious Few’s got a pretty good BIG rock sound that may be better than most of the material Candlebox and Live ever recorded.

For a mere $10, you can check out The Gracious Few and American Bang at the Newport on Thursday night. Doors open at 7:30.
