Unkle Bob – June 13 @ The Rivoli… yes Bob is your uncle
In amongst the manufactured pop drivel, the excitable indier-than-thou new Smiths-elects and the R&B sound-a-likes, you too may have had the good fortune to have stumbled upon something quite special. Enter Unkle Bob – a UK band smacking of classic pop sensibilities, contemporaneous melodies, and immediate melodrama.
Their debut LP ‘Sugar and Spite’ (2006) received critical acclaim and the momentum has landed them sync spots in Grey’s Anatomy, CSI Miami, and most recently in the film What Happens In Vegas. Boasting over 50,000 downloads on itunes, they’ve also entered the Billboard 100 singles chart, and have that uncanny knack of sounding like they’ve been hanging around in your record collection your whole life.
June 13th Unkle Bob will be performing at 10pm at The Rivoli as part of NXNE. With a live performance spanning emotional melodic rock tracks to big and broody anthems, they’ve drawn flattering comparisons from early REM to Prefab Sprout and Radiohead.
