We are the Riot
Here's your chance to witness a bona-fide rock god from the Bay area take the stage. Jonny Scullion, who has performed vocal duties for such Nor Cal luminaries as Nuclear Rabbit and the onetime Capitol Records-signed band Natt (an acronym for Not At this Time), is now fronting a project that counts former Coal Chamber members Meegs Rascon and Kikal Cox among its ranks. Though Scullion, who includes Mike Patton and Scott Weiland among his musical idols, has yet to find lasting success, he has been at it since the mid-'90s, and he has the chops to prove it. But if you're looking for metal renditions of Peter Gabriel songs à la Coal Chamber's 1999 "Shock the Monkey," prepare to be be disappointed, as the participating musicians have filed down their collective edges for this project and now produce a sound that hearkens back to the heyday of alt-rock. And though their gig at the Juke Joint may be little more than an extended advertisement for the Schecter guitar company, it still beats seeing 30 Seconds to Mars at the Glass House.
