Want to meet a celebrity? Say hello and meet SouthSide's good pals simply known as Everyday Celebrity. However make no mistake - their rock sound isn't everyday ordinary either. Promoting their new CD, Something's Missing, this band wasted no time opening the lineup by blasting the audience with thunderous guitar rhythms. Boy, did it ever get SouthSide's heart going as their music surprised her with sudden chord and riff changes. Taking this reviewer from one extreme to the next at times. Fans enjoyed the energy in which these Celebrities performed even while taking the momentum down a notch for a couple of songs. For example, listen to their song wonderfully titled Beautiful. With a name like that, don't expect it to be a rock ballad - no it was the direct opposite. Instead this song pumped a lot of guitar rock sound with a fast-paced tempo. Yet when it was time for a ballad, the energy still remained in tact yet it allowed Ryan's vocals to shine despite being a bit under the weather. During certain songs, he was able to make you feel the emotions off the lyrics especially in songs, While I Wait and I'm Through. This reviewer highly suggests her blogspot readers in giving this local band a listen. Snag a copy of their Something's Missing CD and tune into track 1 ( I Believe in Me ) and track 5 ( Scream ).
