The Book of Right On

This lineup, ladies and gents, is what we call a shoe-in: four persistently underappreciated, masterful live acts that represent the wide array of styles and sounds being made in the Cities these days. The Book of Right On is the latest project from David Joe Holiday (Kentucky Gag Order), whose clamorous blend of highly technical, percussive punk rock and beat poetry is without many peers in contemporary rock 'n' roll. Kill the Vultures is the noir hip-hop project of MC Crescent Moon and DJ Anatomy; Gay Witch Abortion is a blistering punk duo that'll leave your ears ringing and mind spinning for days; and instrumental group Wizards Are Real find the unlikely similarities between the early days of jazz fusion and the muscular alt-rock of the '90s. The local scene has more to offer than one might expect at a cursory glance, and these four bands are prepared to take you on a guided tour. (Photo by Ben Clark)
