Hockey Night



Minneapolis' Hockey Night is a very agreeable band. Featuring two drummers and two guitarists, Hockey Night is a "bread and butter" group with upbeat, perfectly harmonized melodies. In the mold of the Kings of Leon and Pavement, Hockey Night throws down some poppy hooks laced with jumpy rhythms that even Journey would be proud of. In fact, the best description I've seen, thus far, of the band includes a cross between Pavement and the aforementioned Journey. That's what I'm talking about, don't stop belevin'.

Classic, easy rock, "Hockey Night throws in a smattering of classic rock riffs and new wave organs to give their standard indie set-up an added boost of euphoria." Never challenging, but always fun: Hockey Night. (Purchase CD via Insound)

did you know that "hockey" is slang for poop?

gives the bands name a slightly more interesting spin, no?
