Rock & Pop

Ragers/The Hot Rails/Jesse Smith and the Holy Ghost/Venomin James/The Goonz

When: Fri., Oct. 26, 8 p.m. 2012

A local hard rock band that formed last year out of the ashes of the heavily hyped This is a Shakedown, Ragers sound pretty fired up on their new EP Amnesia, which kicks off with the howling vocals of “Blood on the Dance Floor,” a stop-and-go anthem that has elements of Marilyn Manson and Buck Cherry. Guitarist Brandon Zano has a distinctive voice and the shimmering pop of “Glitter Girl,” and the gritty title track show off the band’s musical range. This CD release concert doubles as a Halloween party, so the guys will give out prizes for the best costume. (Jeff Niesel)
