Band: Bass Drum of Death
Hometown: Oxford, Mississippi
RIYL: Black Lips, Blood Circus, Mudhoney, Nirvana, Hole
On October 15, 2011 Bass Drum of Death brought their bonged out Southern Grunge to New Brookland Tavern opening for Toro Y Moi. Like Toro Y Moi, Bass Drum of Death started as a bedroom project, is from a southern college town that is home to an SEC school, has a Blogspot, and comes with a closet full of street cred.Â The similarities stop there as BDoD comes off as more of an early 90’s slacker rock band full of irony, yelps, and feedback.Â Their high energy live show is shared with the crowd who love to shake their asses while BDoD rock out and swing their hair back and forth.
