SOME HEAR EXPLOSIONS AND THE MULHOLLANDS @ The Viper Room

This post is long overdue! Prior to my much needed vacation, I was fortunate to catch Some Hear Explosions at The Viper room. Before the curtains rose at the Viper Room to reveal Some Hear Explosions, you could already sense the brewing excitement in the packed venue with Sunset Strip rocker royalty Barb Wire Dolls and The Shakers' Jodie Schell in attendance. It's been a little bit over a year now since SHE released their debut album "It's Our Time Now." Now, primed to release their sophomore effort, they return to The Viper Room to try out new songs and a new look. And literally taking their show a step further, their new look was a visual entrancing stage show, complete with light boxes that lit up to the touch that was wrapped around volcanic riffs and shout-along choruses. And with an added 20-foot catwalk, it was enticing enough to unleash lead singer Ambre Leigh from the confines of the Viper stage to prowl freely, nearly kicking Vivace blogger's camera, while lashing out her booming vocals on crowd favorites such as "It's Our Time Now" and "Give/Take." Always the party atmosphere at SHE shows, Mulhollands guitarists even joined the fun onstage, playing guitar on a couple songs.

Also on the bill this night were power synth-pop band The Mulhollands with front-woman Sarah Jeanette's lush harmonies to make this night even more memorable. Usually solid and saturated with hot chick sultriness, The Mulhollands didn't disappoint. It was truly a great one-two punch of great L.A. bands this night. Check out more nice pics and write-up at Sugarbuzzmagazine HERE. Some Hear Explosions next plays at Club Moscow at Boardners in Hollywood on September 14th.
