Tyrannosaurus Rules - Tyrannosaurus Rules EP 
Kind of Like:
Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Cheap Girls Genres:
Garage Rock, Grunge, Indie, Pop Punk Buy: Machette Records Preview:
Got the chance to see this Montreal-based band in their hometown during Pouzza Fest. They played pretty late; after midnight. So, I caught most of their set and then afterwards joined the people flooding the streets in protest over tuition raises. I had no informed opinion on the manner, but I wanted to capture as much as I could of it. This band’s set was sick. From what I can remember the lights were out except for one bright lamp hanging from the ceiling that shone in one direction. It hung just in front of the band so as the crowd flowed/surged back and forth towards the stage it was knocked and spun around as the band ripped their music. It was a smaller venue called L’absynthe. It had a really good vibe to it, and they had their own variety of beers they brewed themselves there. Like I said, these guys were really awesome, and if you are from the states, you won’t have to wait too long to see them. Especially if you are going to Fest 11 in Gainesville, hint hint.
The Front Bottoms - The Front Bottoms 
I saw this poster on Tumblr the other day. Not sure if it’s for an actual movie or what, but this band’s name made me think of it.
For Fans Of: Beach Fossils, Death Cab For Cutie, Brand New
Genres: Indie, Emo, Power Pop
Tyrannosaurus Rules is a four-piece emo/indie band from Australia. After some indecision about their name (“Violet Smile” was the alternative name - I think the one they went with is much better), this EP is finally live. I would describe their sound as a mixture of early Death Cab For Cutie (We Have The Facts, You Can Play These Songs With Chords) and early Brand New, but a little more toned down. This is only a debut, but it’s a solid one, and I’m looking forward to hearing more form them in the near future!
