((Birdmonster)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Birdmonster rocks. This new San Francisco band seems to be on everyone's radar, even though their sound is nothing really new. But then again, good old fashioned rock 'n' roll doesn't necessarily have to be original in order to completely suck you in. And Birdmonster sucks! (...in a good way).

I'm convinced that vocalist Peter Arcuni sounds like the singer from The Plastic Constellations, but my source close to the band strongly disagrees (good thing my source doesn't write for OMR!). Other people say they sound like Modest Mouse.

Whatever they sound like, it's true that their songs are rich in riffs, drum rolls, and vocal blasts. Birdmonster recently opened for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and The National, and they are set for global medium-capacity venue domination! Now if only they could do something about that name...
