NYC roots rockers Hollis Brown do a fine line between gutsy ‘70s hard rock and today’s very popular variation on earnest 60s folk. They do that young-man-with-an-old-soul melancholia really well, but as a live band, they’re not afraid to turn up the amps and get into some string-breaking rock and roll. Painesville trio The Suede Brothers bring greasy, sometimes nasty, but always heavy riffs tonight. Their tunes are just tailor-made for those of you who love Sabbath, Rush, and any of their ass-kicking brethren. Akron progressive-rock trio Dave Hammer’s Power Supply bring a diverse but tuneful approach, occasionally reminding one of Jeff Buckley’s wide-spanning musical sensibilities.
