Slow Burning Car, The Roxy Theatre, April 12, 2013
It was a Friday night at the world famous Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip, and rock and roll was about to enrapture the room presented by some pretty terrific local acts. Slow Burning Car was in attendance, presenting a record release party for their third magnum opus entitled Assumption. One of most vastly underrated bands in Los Angeles, Slow Burning Car unleashed an explosive set that really impressed the longtime fans while surely gaining some new converts as well. Opening with The Ghetto and The Sea, the first track from their brand new album, Slow Burning Car continued to rock the house out with their dynamic musicianship and super catchy songs. One of the most epic songs in the set was definitely Kats, a rousing rock and rock anthem that could ignite radio airwaves across the country. Dimples was another live scorching highlight, once again demonstrating Slow Burning Car’s wonderful knack for delivering an instant memorable song.
Founding member Troy Spiropoulos is a dynamic front man, exuding a good deal of passion and conviction into his vocals and bass work. Spriopoulos is surrounding by equally impressive musicians who send Slow Burning Car spiraling into excellence. Included in the lineup is the participation of Mike Zimmerman on drums and vocals, Brian Butler on guitar, and Duc Le on guitar. Fans of noted bands such as Queens Of The Stone Age and Swervedriver will surely want to hitch a ride within the sonic realms of Slow Burning Car. Be sure to check out Assumption as well as the other superb Slow Burning Car releases, as well as their not to be missed live shows.
