Them Evils will be stopping by The Turf Club in Saint Paul on Sunday, February 17th for a can’t miss performance. THEM EVILS are a late-night joyride through rock and roll’s seedy underbelly. Born in the shadows of neon vice and nocturnal living in Las Vegas, nurtured by the proximity of Hollywood’s famed Sunset Strip, and cradled in the same Orange County, CA home that has become synonymous to punk attitude and hard-driving rock history, the leather-and-black clad trio pen unapologetic songs that bristle with a nasty energy beﬁtting their name.
Inspired by equal parts of rock giants like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Queens Of The Stone Age, among others, guitarist/vocalist Jordan Grifﬁn, bassist Jake Massanari and drummer David Delaney pay tribute to their roots with every crushing note on their latest self titled EP, a 4-song homage to the unholy goodness that is THEM EVILS. “We pretty much made our own scene,” Grifﬁn says. “We started out doing straight up rock and roll, and that’s what we’re still doing… that said, we’re always evolving.”
Grifﬁn and Massanari moved to Orange County, CA from Las Vegas in 2013, with nothing else to fall back on. It was there they met Delaney – the ﬁnal piece of the THEM EVILS puzzle they’d been trying to complete for years. Two EPs later (their self-titled release and the lineup’s Cold Black Love debut)… They have toured with bands such as The Pretty Reckless, Alter Bridge, Zakk Sabbath and 10 Years while sharing stages at festivals with some of the biggest names in Rock n’ Roll. They are set to embark on a west coast run with Red Sun Rising and their own headlining tour this spring. They will play Welcome To Rockville, Caroline Rebellion and Rock On The Range this year as well as release another EP!
Bringing rock and roll back to its raw, unbound, and authentic roots, a personal local favorite of mine- XIII Arrows- will be opening up for Them Evils. This promising local band has an amazing sound and energy that just can not be missed.
Kicking the night off will be Chad Erickson & The Untimely. A mainstay in the local hard rock scene, Chad Erickson has spent a decade with an eclectic array of artists, including After Later, Candlelight Vigilante, and local legend Kevin Washington.
