REVIEW : HOTLEG @ The Village

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

I headed down to the village friday just gone to see Justin Hawkins and his new band HotLeg. Ive heard a few of their songs before through their myspace and having been a fan of the darkness in their time thought it would be worth a gander to see Justin take out his Axe and throw out some rocking riffs.

I arrived just as the support band "The Crave" were starting their set. They rattled through an array of catchy rocky type songs which felt strongly influences by The Atari’s. Being a fan of The Atari’s i actually enjoyed their set and really felt for them as the place was pretty sparse on people at this point. The Crave put on a good show and had some good songs but they deserved a better crowd than they got as it seems that anyone coming for hotleg was leaving it last minute to show up.
