Tonight’s HFS Locals Only Spotlight artist is a four-man rock band from Arlington, Virginia, named No Blitz.
They cite the Foo Fighters, Sparta, Muse, Thrice, Rise Against and Metallica as some of their influences, but others have spotted more traces of punk rock as well, drawing slight parallels to The Misfits and Rites Of Spring. What is certain, though, is that they are all very able musicians; three of them can play drums, and the all can play guitar. Add passion to talent, and you’ve got a recipe for a band that’s capable of some live shows with memorable fury.
If you like what you hear from these guys, you’ll want to see them play live at the January 2013 edition of HFS Locals Only Live, this Thursday, January 17 at Angels Rock Bar in Power Plant Live. They’ll be sharing the stage with Fiction 20 Down, Shelby Blondell, Cafe LaMotta, and Spaceboy. Doors open at 8, the bands start at 9, and admission is free (but you have to be at least 21 to get in). As a bonus, we’ll also be giving away tickets every hour to see Reel Big Fish at Rams Head Live on February 1st (and you have to be present to win).
