Check Out the Thrill that is Hans Condor!
Nashville's own Hans Condor tore it up tonight at NYC's Mercury Lounge, with a blistering set that screamed intensity from start to finish. The trio, fronted by phenom guitar/vocalist Charles Kaster, kicked into high gear during the soundcheck and it was take no prisoners from then on. Bassist Erik and drummer Roger (The Brothers Holcombe) built the rock n' roll of Gilbralter from which Kaster plunged--literally--into a mad set of full throttle MC5/Husker Du-esque fury, with a touch of melodics via The Sweet.
They're opening for fellow Nashvillians The Ettes for at 27-city U.S. tour. Catch them 8/3 at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn; 8/4 at the Escape to New York Festival in Southampton (
