The Sheepdogs blasted through their setlist with plenty of raw Southern rock charm. This familiar sound, paired with the hair and fierce attitude is likely what landed them in Rolling Stone's cover artist contest. And the guys took a moment towards the end of their performance to thank fans for voting for them in the online contest.
Other than throwing around a few more thank yous and some song titles, the band steered clear of banter, opting to show the audience that their focus was on rocking out hard.
Watching guitarist Leot Hanson and Gullen propel their fingers at great speed across their respective fretboards before coming together in the classic rock back-to-back position with their axes raised high was a highlight. But vocalist Ewan Currie's pipes and drummer Sam Corbett's killer rhythm did not to go unnoticed either.
The band is currently touring in support of 'Learn and Burn,' the follow-up to their 2006 debut, 'Trying to Grow.'
