Flint Town Throwdown – Round 5
Four area bands battle it out for a week of airplay in the Flint Town Throwdown. This week's bands are Nothing for Now, Westfall, Seven Year Riot, and No Resolve — listen to the tracks and vote for your favorite now.
Nothing for now was formed in 2008 and was revamped in 2011. The final line up is Tommy Vallejo at vocals, Joe, Bieringer at Guitar and Vocals, CJ Orgeck at Guitar, Jay Neely at bass and Corey Newsom at drums. the name nothing for now came about when Tommy was asked what the new project was called and he responded, "Well, nothing for now but we will think of something before we play live." The name stuck. If you where to compare the group to any one we would be a mix of the Deftones, Incubus and Chevelle. all in all we think that you will agree from music to vocals we are original.
WestFall is exceptionally active in their local music scene, and are constantly striving to broaden their horizons. Since their early childhood they shared the same schools, bus routes, and the same drive for music. They were inspired by classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd, who established the foundation for modern hard rock groups such as Godsmack and Metallica.
Formed in early 2008, Seven Year Riot left their mark on thousands as they blazed their way through Ontario. In December 2010 they released their self-titled debut studio release and set off across Ontario and Quebec to promote the album. While on the road the band has been busy writing and getting ready to head into the studio to begin work on their second studio release. Playing some of their new material live at select shows has helped them hone the new material into something that all fans seem to gravitate towards and are highly anticipating the release of this new material.
Hailing from southeast Michigan, their influences are widespread. This range of influences is reflected in their music, with a diverse palette of original material. The energy of their live shows is indisputable. No Resolve will be playing at The Machine Shop on March 31st with Janus.
