At last the AotW is back. Taking the honors this week is Fighting With Wire, a band out of Northern Ireland that I caught during in SXSW last month. These guys stood out with the best acts, in a very crowded field, that I saw. The band was great live, really packing a punch and some healthy aggression. I couldn’t help but every now and then think I was hearing almost a more modern Nirvana sound. There were certainly some nice grunge elements in their songs as well as some hard-hitting metal & punk. As they performed I just kept thinking that I was glad I stumbled into this bar and caught the show; which turned out to be one of the high points of SXSW for me. These guys were what rock is all about and come highly recommended by me. I could go on and on though and never do the justice that hearing them for yourself would do. So go listen now!
