Rock and Roll

– I’m likin’ this band Nathan Asher and the Infantry. Apparently the Raleigh, NC band won a few songwriting competitions since 2003 and have built up a good buzz down the NC Triangle. Their stuff reminds me of the storytelling aspects of Springsteen, matched with early Geldof efforts like “Rat Trap” and “Joey’s on the Street Again” for The Boomtown Rats, and a visceral U2 vibe. They’re playing some shows this week – more songs up at their MySpace site:
