Messies @ The Key Club, 10/30 ~ West Hollywood


The Messies are not for everyone. They have a polished, almost prefabricated sound that some "serious" music fans might consider too radio-friendly. Think "Avril Lavigne" meets "Fall Out Boy", with a 2:1 ratio.


The one thing you can't do, though, is deny their talent. These guys are REALLY good at what they do. At their most recent show, my friend and I were debating on just how often they have to rehearse to be as tight and prepared as they are. We decided no fewer than 4 times a week, if not more.


The Messies are currently working with producer Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette, No Doubt, the Goo Goo Dolls, etc...) in the studio and will have an album finished soon. They'll likely get signed, so if you're the type of person who likes to brag about how you "discovered" a band before they made it big, you should see them perform at least once.

You can catch the Messies this coming Tuesday (10/30) at the Key Club in West Hollywood. It's an all-ages show, and free. The show starts at 8pm.
