Siderunners: Hoedown at CBGB

"Now available for children's parties" is the headline on Chicago band Siderunners' MySpace page and these guys would no doubt be a whole lotta more fun than a creepy clown doing magic tricks.

Their influences are Slayer and Hank Williams and the enegry level is high - this is a tight six-member band with great rock vocals from guitarist Sappy - they are meant to be heard live, but the tracks on their MySpace player will give you an excellent idea of what to expect if you decide to hire them for a punk music hoedown or a kiddie birthday bash.

The Nightfly's favorite track: "My Pistol My Love": Johnny Cash jamming with The Ramones, The Clash, and Slayer.
