Analog Revolution plans two shows in Bowling GreenWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Analog Revolution is working its way up the local music scene with a genre-defying sound that has a little something for everyone.
The Bowling Green band will play two shows in July at Howard’s Club H in downtown Bowling Green.
The quartet has been playing together for almost a year, cultivating its sound and live show. The band consists of vocalist and rhythm guitarist TheMarn, lead guitarist Mike DuBose, bassist Kelli Kling, and drummer Macyn Elliot.
According to Kling, the band started as a personal project of TheMarn and DuBose. The two had just left another group and wanted to create a fresh sound. They recruited Elliot and Kling to complete the ensemble. Each member brought different experiences and influences to the songwriting process.
“When people ask me to describe our sound, I usually just say ‘rock’,” Kling said. “But it’s actually very diverse.”
Traces of industrial rock, pop, punk, hair metal and more can be heard in the band’s original material. Acts such as AC/DC, Tom Waits, The White Stripes and others audibly inform the band’s sound. Kling cited Van Halen as a personal influence.
“They’re a band that likes to have fun, but they’re also good musicians,” Kling said. “That’s something that I think we definitely strive for as well.”
This blended style of music has garnered the band increasing success in the Bowling Green music scene.
“We’ve had a good turnout and a good reception pretty much every show,” Kling said. “I think everyone in the area is receptive and supportive of local bands.”
The band has played several shows in Bowling Green, but plans on playing at Toledo venues soon. It is currently working on an album, Kling said, which will hopefully lead to more shows.
“We would definitely like [the band] to grow, and to travel to other cities and make CDs,” Kling said.
Analog Revolution will play at 10 p.m. July 8 at Howard’s Club H with Wards of the Mayor and Hot Love. Admission is $3.
A second show is scheduled for July 30.
