NXNE 2012: Grounders @ The Silver Dollar

THURSDAY — Covering North By Northeast gives every journalist a chance to see what’s out there — to see what’s exciting and what the sound of the year to come might be. That's why it’s nice to see a band like Grounders play. Young and fresh faced, they are a shoegaze orgasm of rock delight. 

On the heels of the release of their first two-song recording, they kicked through a short, laidback set in the dim Silver Dollar Room. Grounders gentlemen Jerry Shakes, Bobby Canoli, Andy Chambers, Kelvin Grove, and Kevin Lewis left an indelible mark on the rapidly growing crowd — and on the minds of those attentively watching. One night into the festival, we've already found a band worth keeping an eye on. We’re excited to see where they go.
