((The Airborne Toxic Event)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

The Airborne Toxic Event

This band isn't messing around. LA's The Airborne Toxic Event sounds like U2 meets Arcade Fire meets Neil Diamond (they get compared to The Cure too, but I don't really hear that as much. Definitely Diamond though).

The crew of five (including a violinist, so you know they're serious) is obviously intent on capturing a big, dramatic sound that will one day lead them to the hallowed halls of Zippo-lit arenas.

And they certainly succeed in creating something that leans heavily towards the theatrical. Their songs often start slow and quiet before building to some sort of vibrant, inspiring solution.

They don't want you to slowly rock back and forth at their shows; they want you to get goose bumps. The Airborne Toxic Event is a band that's definitely going to move some units before they're all said and done.
