Last night The Greater Good and Hot Rails to Hell packed about a million people into Lovejoys for their much anticipated show. It was the first show of the brand new band The Greater Good and the first show in a very long time for Hot Rails to Hell. It was obvious that everyone was excited to see what The Greater Good had come up with. With members from The Roller, Fuckwork, Til Death and Speedealer, they certainly have some talent to work with and they definitely made use of it last night. Their upbeat, fast and loud music didn't sound much like what I have heard from The Roller, but it was great nonetheless. It would be kind of pointless if they sounded exactly the same as another band. Everyone I talked to after the show had enjoyed it, as did I. Hot Rails to Hell, playing their first gig after a very long hiatus, went on next. I was excited to see them and they definitely got everyone's attention with their energetic music. Their punk and early heavy metal influences were obvious in their music but didn't overshadow the unique sound they had to offer. They were fun to watch and put on a great live show. Neither band out-shined the other and overall it was a terrific show.
